Don’t Do These Things When Searching for the Right First Dance Song

Your wedding is supposed to be a truly magnificent moment in your life – and while every single second counts to making this event feel truly memorable, we know just how important it is for brides and grooms to create a truly remarkable first dance.

Naturally, the song you choose for this special dance is very, very important.

But what are some of the things you should not do when picking it? We have some tips for you – keep reading and find out more.

  • This is not something you choose on a whim, just because. It’s not something you rush through or something you leave for the night before the wedding itself. Deciding which song suits you best can be a pretty long process, especially since this has to fit both of you and since you must both connect to it at an emotional level. Take your time in doing this, listen to music with your heart open, and always keep your mind open to new options as well.
  • This is not something you choose based on trends either. Just because a couple of years ago everyone’s go-to for the first dance was Ed Sheeran, it doesn’t mean that this has to be a great option for you too. Trends can be a great source of inspiration, yes. And if you find a popular song that speaks to your soul and to your story, then go ahead and use it for the first dance. But don’t rely solely on trends for this very important decision! Your heart dictates first, not the popularity charts!
  • This is not something you choose without “testing”. Or, in other words, dancing to it. You don’t have to be the most experienced dancers in the world to pull off a magical first dance – but you do need to make sure you can actually dance to this. Test it out around the house and see how you actually feel moving to this tune – is it something that makes you feel good, a song you find it easy to dance to? Then this is the one!
