Choosing the song for your first dance as a married couple can be quite the difficult task. You’ve finally done it, you’ve tied the knot! Now all eyes are on you for that once in a lifetime, special moment. The lights dim, the dance floor clears, and it’s show time; your time. Wait, hold on; let’s back things up. How does a couple even choose their first dance song? Well, I asked SCE’s very own DJ Christian LaGrotteria for his advice on the matter and here are some of his very own tips!
Think about the time that you first met. Where were you? What were you doing? What songs were popular during that time period? The key is to choose a song that is unique, personal, and special to both you and your significant other. A song filled with meaning that strikes up those old, sweet, loving memories that have been intimately shared between you.
Remember, this dance is just for you two! It’s important to keep in mind that your first dance is solely between you and your special someone. It’s not for your family, or for your friends, so don’t worry about satisfying everyone else! There is a ton of people pleasing and compromising that goes into wedding planning, but not in this case! The first dance should be about enjoying and embracing this moment together as it is one that neither of you will ever forget.
Make it memorable. There are so many ways to make your first dance memorable, but don’t stress! This moment is about you and your fiancé so no matter what, it will be incredible. Some couples choose to take dance lessons and waltz their way around the floor to a romantic, love ballad. Other couples choose to choreograph a wild and crazy dance with their bridal party. Whether your are performing for you guests, or simply dancing to your favorite song as if you were the only two in the world, make it memorable!
