How do I find the perfect first dance song?

Answered by Jeremy Urbaniak

Finding the perfect first dance song can be a daunting task, but with a little creativity and inspiration, you can find a song that perfectly captures the sentiment and significance of your special day. Here are some tips and suggestions to help you find the perfect first dance song:

1. Pick something significant and sentimental: Think about songs that hold a special meaning for you and your partner. It could be a song that reminds you of a special moment or a song that has lyrics that resonate with your relationship.

2. Listen to your music libraries on shuffle: Sometimes, the perfect first dance song is one that you already have in your music collection. Put your music library on shuffle and see if any songs strike a chord with you. You might be surprised by what comes up!

3. Call a friend or family member: Reach out to your loved ones and ask them for song suggestions. They might have a song in mind that perfectly fits your style and relationship. Plus, it’s a great way to involve your loved ones in the wedding planning process.

4. Use your venue as inspiration: Consider the style and ambiance of your wedding venue. If you have a rustic barn wedding, a country or folk song might be fitting. If you’re getting married at a glamorous ballroom, a classic love song might be more suitable. Let the venue set the tone for your song choice.

5. Steal your favorite celebrity couple’s song choice: Take inspiration from your favorite celebrity couples and see what songs they chose for their first dance. While it’s important to make the song your own, this can be a great starting point for finding a song that resonates with you and your partner.

Remember, the perfect first dance song is ultimately a personal choice. It should reflect your relationship and evoke the emotions you want to feel on your wedding day. Trust your instincts and choose a song that speaks to your heart.
