The first dance of the bride and groom needs to be special, memorable, and well-planned. You only need to choose a song. What could possible go wrong? Of course, choosing a song sounds easy, but after seeing how many options you have to choose from, you'll realize how selecting a song for the dance can be a bit of a challenge.
It's only a challenge if you don't know what to look for. This article aims to give you a heads up on what to look at when choosing a song for the dance.
Find something that the two of you have in common (musically, we mean). One of the major challenges about choosing a song for dance is your conflicting interests. You may be interested in a specific band or song but that's not to say that the groom will like it too. However, just because finding a song you both like is hard does not mean it cannot be done. Narrow down the options by determining the genre which both of you like.
Look for lyrics that similar to your love story. When it comes to wedding dance songs, there is a thin silver lining between a sweet love song and “your” own love song. It can be about where you started dating, a memory of your beginnings, a proof of your struggles, or any story that reminds you of one another.
Choose a beat that you can dance to. You don't have to hire a professional to teach to you how to dance. You just need to be comfortable with the song that you chose. Moreover, you can hire a DJ and tell him to prepare a customized version of a song which lyrics you liked.
