Online wedding planner for over 10 years. My goal has been to show everyone the best way to plan their wedding without breaking the bank !

Dance Music For Your First Dance

Here are the very best wedding songs for your special day. We started with 50 songs, but I can see that we will be adding to that list. There are no wrong wedding songs. Your song should have meaning to you as a couple. We have catagorized our playlist to help you make easy choices.

Make sure to include your partner when selecting your song. It should have meaning to both of you. It may take you a bit of time to go through all of the songs that are availabl. But the significance of that moment will be an important memory to all once the day is gone.

Romantic wedding song are the most popular selection for most couples. They make your special day be what it is all about-love and togetherness. But those songs can be country, contemporary, or classic

Selecting Your Dance Song

The first step in creating that special dance is deciding what song you will be dancing to. This is a conversation that both you and your fiancé need to have. First think about what kind of music appeals to you? Are you into country, soft rock, fun and upbeat, music from the 50's? Decide what kind of music you want to dance to before your select your special song.

Do you both like a particular artist? Do you have a song that has always been special to you? Take time to select a song that will be memorable to you in years to come.

Take an evening to spend together just listening to music that you may want to dance to. Before you know it, you will have that special song to get your reception going

How To Cover Your Music

Carry Your CD

You expect that after you speak to your DJ or band director they would have the music that you requested for your first dance. But why take the chance. Carry a little insurance and have some special music that you wanted on a CD just in case the vendor forgets. It's always a good idea to cover your bases

Traditions Dance

Also A Generations Dance

When I got married in May of 2011, my Dad was then 86 years old with some health problems. I knew I wanted to have a father daughter dance, but I needed to keep just for a few minutes. So My idea was to have a traditions or generation dance. I started with my 7 year old grandson, then went ot my 39 year old son and ended with my Dad. It was a very treasured moment for everyone. You can't imagine how treasured those pictures really are to our family. I hope other Brides adopt this idea. We danced to "Did you know that your're my hero" My son and I danced to this same song at his wedding.Everyone embrassed this special moment in my reception. If you have a grandfather or another special male relative in your life, please make sure to think about including this in your plans.

Few More Wedding Dance Tips

  1. Keep it simple. Do something that both of you feel comfortable with. If its just a slow shuffle around so be it.
  2. Keep it short. Most CD songs are about 4 minutes. Too long! A minute is more than enough. Get someone to cut it for you.
  3. If you come from a family of perfectionists go to a professional dance studio and let them choreograph a dance for you and then teach it to you until its smooth. Sign up for their wedding package, most studios have them.
  4. Relax! The people watching are on your side even if they kid you
  5. Dance before you've had a lot to drink. After drinking while you may be relaxed your body will not cooperate and your dance will not be smooth.
  6. Remember that the most important thing is that you are with the love of your life and this is the day you celebrate that love.
