You’ve planned your centerpieces, you’ve sent out your invitations, you’ve purchased your dress and now it’s finally time to get into the nitty gritty details of the wedding. It’s time to plan what the first song will be that you and your new spouse will dance to. The song that describes to your guests your relationship and what you are feeling at that moment.
For some this is an easy decision there is a song that already has special meaning to you. You might also chose your song based on a certain dance style if you are taking dance lessons before the big day. To others this becomes an arduous task that can take days of searching and debating. Not to mention the time it takes to look up all the lyrics to make sure what the song says has the right meaning for your first dance. I’m not saying I did that, ok you caught me I did! And in the end I was very happy with the song we chose. Oh now you’re interested to know what song it was… ok ok It was I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing by Aerosmith.
To make it all easier for you I have a list of 100 songs to peruse with links so you can hear them and read the lyrics; because, I know you really want to make sure the song works for you!

******* FIRST DANCE TIP*******
Check the length of the song when you pick it. If you’re not comfortable dancing in front of all of your guests for 4-5 minutes make sure you let your DJ know to either ask your guests to join you around minute 2 or ask them to cut the song short.
