Stitely Soundboard: first dance – getting off on the right foot

Choosing a first dance song is an extremely personal experience for every couple.  While some songs by virtue of their lyrics are obvious poor choices, many songs capture the emotion and message intended by the couple’s first dance.  This makes the decision that much harder for couples who don’t have a clear winner.  Need some help picking a song? Here are some tips to think about:

  • consider the lyrics – do they feel personal? does a line need to be rewritten to fit better?
  • song length – how long to you want to be the center of attention?
  • how you are dancing – are you learning a dance? do you know what tempo your song should be to match your dancing pace?
  • specific versions – are you in love with the way a certain artist performs your song? Play your favorite version on CD or iPod so you can have exactly what you want!

If you are still stuck listening to song after song and not finding one that feels right, check out the AOL radio blog to find the “10 Best Wedding Songs for the First Dance,”.  Maybe you will be inspired by Eric Clapton’s “Wonderful Tonight” or go a little country with Rascal Flatts “Bless the Broken Road,” both of which are included on the list.

And, if you are also having a hard time chosing a father-daughter dance song, there’s a top 10 list for that, too!
