A couple’s first dance as man and wife at the wedding reception is a memorable event that will be remembered for the rest of their lives. So it stands to reason that the happy couple will want this first dance to be perfect and remain in their memories as one of the high points of their wedding reception. There are a number of ways that a couple can use to determine what the perfect song for their first dance as man and wife will be and by carefully choosing which song to use, the couple can ensure a wonderful occasion that they will remember forever.
One of the most important things to keep in mind when choosing the song for that first dance together is that choosing the song should be a joint effort between both people. Take the time to sit down together to make suggestions and talk about which songs you really enjoy and which songs you cannot stand. Some couples find that a song that one person really loves may have negative memories associated with the song in the mind of the other person and choosing that particular song would drag down the tone of the festive evening.
If the couple has a special song that they consider to be “their song”, that may be the best song to use for their first dance as man and wife. It does not matter whether the song is fast or slow or not a love song, all that matters is that the song has special meaning for the couple getting married. Any song that can be danced to, in any fashion, may be used as the song for the first wedding dance.
Some couples who are planning a more traditional wedding may want to have a more traditional wedding dance. Many of these couples choose to take dance lessons in a particular style of classic dance before the wedding and will choose a song that allows them to showcase that style of dance on the dance floor of the reception hall. In these cases, the best song to choose for the wedding dance is the song that the couple used to learn the classical style of dance.
Many couples choose a more non-traditional dance method for their first dance as man and wife. As weddings have become less formal and more fun over the years, many couples have chosen to shy away from the stiff, formal styles of classical dance and choose to use their own moves on the dance floor. Couples have chosen songs for their first dance ranging from country story songs to rock ballads to fast rap songs.
Any song that appeals to both people can be made into a memorable first dance for the newlywed couple in easy and interesting ways. Remember, the wedding is something for you to remember as one of the happiest days of your life and the wedding dance and song should also be something that makes you happy and creates a memory that you will cherish. So, if dancing to a particular song at your wedding will make you and your fiancée happy, go for it and shake your tail-feathers!
