After signing the register, your wedding first dance is one of the first things you’ll do together as a couple.
Are you stressing over choosing the song? Are you worried it won’t be appropriate or the guests won’t like it? If you and your partner already have an ‘our tune’ then, so long as it’s clean and wedding party friendly, you probably don’t need to read any further.
But, if you’re not one of those couples, then you could be agonising over the piece of music to which you intend to step onto the dance floor.

Wedding First Dance
You need to tread carefully here – did you see what I did there? This could be as tricky as who you’re going to sit your great-uncle Fred next to – what with his repertoire of off-colour jokes and his habit of blowing his nose REALLY loudly.
You can of course play it safe with some classic first dance songs, or you can look for what’s trendy at the time of your wedding and go with one of those. Alternatively you can quickstep to your local dance school in an effort to impress the guests with some slick salsa moves. To mix the dance step metaphors somewhat.
Decisions, decisions, decisions
