Choosing Your First Dance Wedding Song
You agonize over it for months before your big day.
It has to be something special. Something that defines you as a couple. Something that all your guests will watch, with tears in their eyes, and admire the true love reflected in what they see. Or perhaps you want it to be something unique that reflects the fun-loving nature you have as a couple. Either way, it has to be good.
The first dance…
It’s the one tradition from your wedding that you will carry with you for the rest of your life. Your first dance wedding song becomes “your song” as a couple. And long after you’re married, you’ll always remember the first dance wedding song you danced to your first time as a married couple.
Because of the longevity of the first dance wedding song, most couples typically choose classic tunes or the popular romantic song for that year. Other couples try to choose a song with lyrics that are meaningful to them, that accurately represent their life, or let’s face it, that are easy to dance to!
For me, it was Kelly Moneymaker, “Can’t Live Without Your Love”. It’s not a popular song by any means, but the lyrics rang true and will always hold a special place in my heart.
