Your wedding day is all about you.

Obviously you want the entire day to go perfectly, especially your first dance. This is a moment that you will want to remember forever. For your first dance song, you will probably want to choose something romantic, meaningful, and easy to dance to. With that criteria, there are so many songs to choose from!

Some couples have “their song” in mind months before they even start planning the wedding. While others may still be wondering what will be that perfect first dance song.
