Think About Your Love Story

How would you and your partner describe your relationship? Is it crazy, fun, romantic? Think of some lyrics that remind you of your relationship. This step is to merely help you narrow down how you compare your love story to music.

Pick A Song You’ll Always Love

When picking your first dance song we want you to have that warm fuzzy feeling in your stomach - this is how you know you’ll always love your song. Don’t only get caught up in how the song helps define your big day, pick something that makes you smile no matter your mood! Some people love their first dance songs so much they play it at big occasions in their lives because it makes them feel amazing!

Choose A Song You Can Dance Too

Let’s face it, you can’t dance to every song ever created. This step is near crucial!

Think about this when listening to your options!

Pick a Band or Artist you and Your Partner Both Love

Do you and your partner share bands or artists you both love? Try their songs first! Doing this will help you narrow down a song because you’re coming into a partnership so why not pick the song in partnership?
