Dance Away with a Unique First Song

Wedding season is upon us! The time has come to start your exciting wedding planning. Couples search for the best ways to incorporate their personalities into all aspects of their big day. Months go into picking out the ideal wedding gown, gorgeous venue, adventurous caterer, talented florist, unique décor and all those special details, which make your wedding day stand out to family and friends. 

Many couples are using their first dance as a way to let their creativity and personality shine. Now, the classic first dance songs like: “At Last,” by Etta James, “Because You Loved Me,” from Celine Dion and “Could I have this Dance,” by Anne Murray are always a great way to kick off a couples first dance as husband and wife. However, if you are the kind of couple that dances to their own tune, our wedding experts are here to give a few more “untraditional” first wedding song choices, which could just be that unique splash you crave.

Before choosing your first song, ask yourself a few simple questions to help narrow down your choices.  How formal do I the first dance do be? Will the song showcase our personality? Is the first song a party starter? Once you have pin pointed those few simple questions, choosing a unique first song will not only be fun, but adventurous. Here a five unique choice ranging in various themes to help get you off to a great start.

“Lucky” by Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat

A beautiful country song that is almost certain to bring tears to several watching eyes.

“The Glory of Love” by Jimmy Durante

A beautiful classic that is sure to create an old Hollywood vibe.

Whether you decide to stick to tradition or embrace the adventurous side, we wish your wedding and life together all the happiness in the world. Happy dancing!
