POPULAR WEDDING FIRST DANCE SONGS

The song for your first dance is different for everyone, and entirely your own choice. You may already have that song that means something special to you as a couple. If not, don't worry! Just make sure that you choose a song you really like and are familiar with - you will be hearing it a lot during the lessons!

You can dance to any song, but there are some songs that make the task easier than others! Something with a medium tempo is a good starting point - generally the slower the song, the slower the steps. Don't think this is the easy option as it can sometimes get boring for both yourselves and your guests if you go for a really soppy option! Equally, a song with a quicker tempo will call for some faster footwork!

The average length pop song is generally three to three and a half minutes long, which is the ideal length to dance to. If your choice of song is longer and you don't want to dance for the full duration of it, we have a few simple solutions. For example, or we can edit the music to an appropriate length for you, or you can invite your guests to join you on the dance floor at a desirable moment. Many people are opening the doors to their friends and family, children or bridesmaids and ushers too, getting them involved with some or all, of the dance. This can be a really impressive surprise for the rest of your guests!

If you are finding it hard to choose just one song, then don't fret! Again, music can be edited to join two, three or even more songs together into your own ultimate medley - great variety and a real surprise for your guests! Ultimately, you want a song you both like and feel comfortable with.

We are always on hand and eager to offer advice, so trawl through your music collection, pour yourselves a glass of wine and get listening!
