A Couples first dance at their wedding

But it’s not all about finding the most popular song for your first dance, it’s about finding the right one for you and your partner. The perfect first dance song should be something that triggers memories for the rest of your lives. Sure, you can always start with the classics, but why not dig a little deeper. Try to find the song that best describes your relationship or the lyrics that best express how you feel about one another.

Bearing this in mind, here are The 45’s top three tips to help you pick the perfect song for your special day. 

Consider your own story

Maybe there was a particular song playing when you first met your partner or a song that has always had a special meaning to you. Maybe there was a song that reminds you of when you first went on holiday together? The most important thing here is to make sure you pick a song special to you and your own journey.


Classic vs Contemporary

This is where things get a little tricky. Do you decide on one of the classics, or settle on something a little more current? If you go with one of the crowd-pleasing classics, you can’t really go wrong. However, if there is a more recent song that says everything you want about your relationship, why not choose a future classic?!?


The Dance

This is something we have yet to mention. Have you got the moves? While it’s one thing to choose a song for your first dance, it’s another thing altogether to actually walk the walk. Make sure to select a song that you will enjoy in the moment and will provide lasting memories for you and your partner.
