First Dance Songs That Fit Your Wedding Style

When music is a very important part of your life, it’s especially key to find the right song to complement your first dance as a newlywed couple.

My personal favorites to spin for special moments like these are songs that are just as unique as the couple that’s dancing to them. As a professional DJ, the best advice I can give is this: The first dance is one of those magical moments where time stands still, the spotlight is shining bright, and all eyes are on you, so literally anything goes as far as pairing music to your perfect moment. This is an amazing opportunity to spotlight any song that’s personally meaningful to the both of you as you take center stage and shine. Here are a few different styles and examples to help you along your way.
