Sometimes choosing the song for your first dance is easy. Maybe it was part of the first concert you and your true love saw together. Maybe it was the backdrop to your first kiss. Or maybe it’s just your favorite sing-along on car trips. Other times, the pressure of picking the absolute perfect song for can cloud the ability to narrow it down to just one. But don’t give up just yet! With these few tips and suggestions, couples at Bucks County, PA, wedding locations will be sashaying across the dance floor in no time.

Find common ground

Though great advice for all aspects of your relationship, it certainly works here, too. When looking for the right song, make sure that it piques the musical interest of both you and your spouse-to-be. Talking about and listening to different genres together will make the process so much easier, especially if you don’t have the same taste in music.

So, you found a band or musician you both love, but they don’t seem to have any wedding-appropriate music? Take to the internet. Often times you will be able to search for more obscure songs or collaborations by certain artists that will fall more in line with the mood you’d like to set.

Search the lyrics

Search for a song that doesn’t just tell a love story. Find one that tells your story. How did you meet? Where did you meet? Was it love at first sight? Was it not at all? There are songs out there that speak to every kind of relationship. Really listen to the words of the song choices you have in front of you and think to yourself, “Is this us?”

Make it slow enough to sway, but fast enough to move

Another very important component of your first dance song is ensuring that it’s a song to which you can first dance. No, you don’t need to have a professionally choreographed first number, but you definitely want that perfect song to have enough of a beat to get you two moving together. Do you love a song that doesn’t have the right tempo? Don’t be afraid to ask your band or DJ to create a customized rendition to match the beat you want.

Be Unique

If you have your heart set on a traditional love song that lets you fall into each other’s arms, go for it. But if you want to pick something a little more unconventional, that’s okay too. This is your moment, your day, your everything. Make it a dramatic song, a salsa beat, a tune that turns an Alabama two-step into a line dance. Whatever it is, as long as you both love it, it’s going to be the perfect addition to your special day.

Whether picking a tried-and-true track or a personally significant melody, guests at Bucks County, PA, wedding locations will appreciate the thought and time put into the choice.
