Your First Dance

Are you ready for your first dance with your new husband/wife?  This is that one moment where the world stops and everyone disappears.  Your reception will be fun and it will fly by quicker than you ever imagined, so take those few minutes with your love and get lost.  Picking your song for that first dance is so important because everytime you hear it from now on, you will be taken back to that perfect moment. When you get stuck and don't have "your" song, go for classic. Oldies are always goodies. You can't go wrong with a classic: everyone knows them and they have a old time romance about them, like Etta James' "At Last" or Frank Sinatra's "It Had to be You".   If you're lucky enough to have a song from your first date, go for it! It might bring back those butterflies. If you're getting married in Las Vegas, or you're renewing your vows after getting married in Vegas, pick Elvis.  He's romantic and its a fun way to include that Vegas spice.  Totally lost? I have seen just a classic waltz as a first dance.  In some cultures, that is the only way to go.  It might require some practice, but that could be a fun experience to share with your fiance.  Don't feel like you are restriced to slower songs either.  Boogy on down and have fun.  Maybe that's the best way to describe you both as a couple. Even if its a silly song or dance that only you two understand, I say go for it. :) Here is a list of top 25 wedding song picks.  Courtesy of theknot.com.  Can you spot yours? 1.
