Finding Your First Dance

*** This week we give you all of our best ideas for finding your First Dance ->

FINDING YOUR FIRST DANCE This is one of our favourite moments of the entire day. Outside of the ceremony, it is easily the most memorable part of the day, giving your guests a true glimpse of your love together on full courageous display. This is why searching for the PERFECT first dance can be understandably intimidating! The truth is that there is no such thing as PERFECT, but rather the perfect song for you and your specific story at that time in your lives. The best way to do it is to pour a glass of wine with your fiance and try a few of these helpful tactics and hints together: 1) Dig into those old CDs and playlists from days gone by. 2) Think of the year you met and look up songs released on the radio at that time. 3) The emotion of the songs matters most, don't worry if every word makes sense. 4) Don't worry if your song choice is obvious, great songs are often popular too. 5) If the tempo isn't quite right, remember that your band can slow it down for you. 6) Sometimes the perfect song for you might be fast, loud or funny. We say go for it! 7) Ultimately the only thing that matters is that the song means something to you both. Without further delay, it is time for us to list some of our favourites we have had the proud pleasure of performing over the years. Feel free to slow dance to a few of these at home if you feel so inspired :D
