Some couples have 'their song' long before they get married, the first song they danced to at Prom or something from a special moment in their relationship. Others pick a song they both like for their first dance and it becomes their special song through the years together as a married couple.
Here are some of my favorite tunes for the First Dance:
"Till My Last Day" by Justin Moore
"Marry Me" by Train
"1,000 Years" Christina Perry
"Then" by Brad Paisley
"Feels Like Home" by Chantal Kreviazuk
"My Best Friend" by Tim McGraw
"God Blessed the Broken Road" by Rascal Flatts
"Amazed" by Lonestar
"Lucky" by Colbie Caillat
"You And Me" by Dave Matthews Band
Couple of tips
If your song is long, let the DJ know to fade it out at a certain point or have the band only do the first couple of verses. Six minutes of having people watch you dance will seem like forever.
If you aren't planning a choreographed routine, another idea is taking dancing lessons, which can be a fun thing for couples to do together and a way to make you seem a little more graceful for your dance.
Whether you decide to take lessons or not, it doesn't hurt to do a little practice, especially the Groom! Try dancing to your song at least once to make sure you're both on the same page with how you plan on dancing.
If you've chosen your song, we'd love to hear what it is!
