The First Dance

When choosing a song for your first dance
as husband and wife,
there are just a few things you need to keep in mind.
In my opinion, it is as simple as selecting a song
that is meaningful to both of you
and speaks about your relationship together.
Make sure you reflect your unique personality
as a couple and choose a song that has lasting power.
You should love this song just as much
in twenty years as you do today.

Also, think about whether you are a more
traditional or contemporary couple?
What genre of music suits your particular style?
Additionally, a positive message about love and an
upbeat mood is also important when selecting this special song.

Make sure you read all the lyrics carefully
and practice dancing so you can move
naturally to the rhythm and beat.
For some couples, the thought of the first dance
really makes them sweat!
So consider taking a few lessons if it makes
you both feel more comfortable.
Remember, this is a intimate moment
that you will share with all of your guests,
so make it unforgettable!

1. I Could Not Ask For More - Edwin McCain
2. Lost In This Moment - Big and Rich
3. At Last - Etta James
4. All I Want Is You - U2
