Wedding Song Recommendations: First Dance

“How do I choose a song for our father daughter dance?”
“What if we don’t have a “song”, how do we choose our first dance track?”
“We want to be different so what do you suggest for our grand entrance song?”

These are all great questions and ones that we hear all the time. So, we decided to start posting our best wedding song recommendations and even some creative selections from our own clients to help all of the Brides and Grooms to be!

Today we are featuring songs for the Bride and Groom’s First Dance.  This can be a difficult song choice for couples if they don’t already have a song that reminds them of their first date, engagement, or any other special moment in their relationship.  Instead, we like to recommend choosing something that suits your music tastes but that also triggers some emotion when you hear it.  Many couples feel awkward dancing to a five minute song, so be sure to talk to your DJ about finding the right portion of a song to play before fading it out.  Here are a few suggestions from Elevated Pulse!
