A couple’s first dance at their wedding is a truly special moment. By this point you have said your vows, toasted your nuptials and are looking towards a night of celebration with family and friends!

For some people, choosing the song for your first dance can be an easy decision, but for others it can be a harder choice, maybe there are two or three songs that would be a great fit? Or maybe you have no idea where to start?

We suggest choosing a song that means something to you both – it doesn’t have to be slow, or even about love! Just make sure it's a song you both like so every time you hear it in the future, it takes you back to your once-in-a-lifetime day!

When you’ve got your perfect song you need to decide how it will be performed. Do you want the track played by your DJ? Or do you want to choose a unique act to make that moment truly one to remember for you and your guests.

We’ve shortlisted a few suggestions for you below to get the inspiration flowing…

The Fred & Ginger…

Fancy yourselves spinning around the floor to a smooth crooner classic? Then how about kicking off the night with a jazz band like – Blue Tonic... these guys are sure to create a classy and memorable atmosphere at your evening reception.

The Show-Stopper Band…

Maybe you want to WOW the crowd with a show band such as The Downtowners? They can kick start their set with your first-dance following it with a party classic to guarantee your guests flood the floor for the rest of the night!

The DJ Master…

Maybe you want to dance to the original vocals of your favourite song? So, keep it simple and let a  DJ like DJ Ruben take control of the evening playing your requested favourites “All Night Long” – see what we did there…
