First dance song selection: reflect on your relationship and find the perfect song.

When choosing your first dance song, you will want it to be something that is meaningful to both you and your groom, and that reflects your unique relationship. Traditionally bride and groom first dance songs are slow and romantic. A great way to narrow down your options of music is to sit down with your fiancé and make a list of songs you love, and that have made an impact on you during your relationship. Whatever you pick, it should be a song you both love now, and will continue to for years to come.
