How To Choose Your First Dance Song

Wednesday 20th January 2016

If you and your other half have agreed to have your Brighton wedding entertainers play something for your first dance as a married couple, it’s time to start thinking about what song you’d like to pick. But this could prove to be a lot harder than you might have thought, so have a quick read of this blog if you need a bit of help.

Think about the kind of couple that you are together and whether you want your first dance to be a serious affair, or something a bit more lighthearted. Working this out first will really help you make a decision about what track would be most appropriate.

If you’re a pair of jokers, something a bit cheeky could be the way forward (think Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong’s Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off and go from there), but if you’re more traditional as a couple, then Frank Sinatra’s Fly Me to the Moon might be a better choice.

Alternatively, if you consider yourselves to be a little bit out there, something completely off the wall could be a good idea. What about something entirely left field like The Bear Necessities… it’ll guarantee a smile on people’s faces and they won’t be able to wait to join you on the dancefloor!

If you’re not sure about the first dance idea at all, don’t worry – you’re not alone. And you don’t have to have one at all. If you want to just give a nod to the tradition, pick something easy to dance to like The Mamas and the Papas’ Dream a Little Dream of Me and get everyone else up dancing as quickly as possible.
