Among the many romantic moments that you and your partner will share as newlyweds, what are you most excited for? Is it the opportunity to smash delicious cake in your partner’s face? Or, perhaps it’s the moment that your partner sweeps you onto the dance floor and you get to share your first dance as newlyweds.

Things That You Should Talk to Your Wedding DJ About

With such a wonderful moment, everything should be perfect, including your song!

Here at Bill Pence Music, we are thrilled to see couples share such incredible moments on their wedding day! That’s why we have gathered some tips to assist you with choosing a song for your own special first dance. To discover some helpful insight, be sure to continue reading:

  • A Rhythm to Get Your Feet Moving. Of course, your first dance should be something that you can dance to, whether it is fast or slow. However, it’s important to choose a rhythm that you can keep up with. When choosing your song, make sure that you and your partner are both comfortable with the pace presented.
  • Just the Right Length. While you may want this romantic moment to last forever, your guests are ready to celebrate with you and enjoy the wedding festivities that you have planned. The recommended first dance length is about two minutes. This way, you and your partner can have your time to shine, but it won’t be overwhelming to your guests.
  • Lyrics That Make Sense. There are many songs that present a romantic sounding beat but feature off-putting lyrics. These may sound like a good choice until you take a second to listen to what the artist is actually saying. Pay attention to your lyrics to ensure that they are sending the right message about you and your partner.
