First Dance at a Wedding

We often get asked about what makes a good first dance, so we thought we’d offer our take on it….

When your choosing your first dance together, it may seem an obvious point to make – but do listen to the lyrics!

Many a time we’ve been asked to play a favourite song of the couple, only on first listen to discover it’s about cheating, infidelity or in one case – the song was about a parent, not a partner!

It’s all too easy to forget what the lyrics actually mean when a song has been a firm favourite for years. It may sound great on the dance floor, but all too often we have watched rather puzzled looks from guests as U2’s ‘I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For’ kicks in, or The Police – ‘Every Breath You Take (the song is actually about stalking an ex-lover!) pumps out over the sound system.

On another note, one of the best first dances we have seen was ‘Moves Like Jagger – never be afraid of going down the upbeat route especially if the groom is uncomfortable with a slowie!
