We tend to think a lot about the statements and insinuations of certain songs. At a wedding, we want each song's vibe, feel, meaning, and lyrical content to add to the party anyway possible. Here are a few to consider.
Rather than share a list of songs unanimously considered to be the top songs for this special moment, I wanted to share a list of songs our brides have chosen. Some are more traditional while others are a little less common but regardless, they share one common thing: making the perfect moment.
Many slow songs are written with a romantic tone. A song you would dance to with your new wife might not be a song you would want to dance to with your mother, so always listen to the lyrics to make sure it's something you are comfortable dancing to in front of your guests. Here are a few safe options.
Maybe it's a song they remember dancing to at a concert, maybe it's a dramatic song for a dramatic entrance, maybe it's a funny song because you're funny people. However you go it, here are a few you might consider adding to your short list, whether it's a band or DJ doing the entertaining.
There is nothing like an exciting bridal party introduction to kick off a wedding party. The thing that makes these fun for us is working with the couple to find a vibe-setting song. This is an opportunity to start the night out with a specific tone, maybe even an opportunity to let your identity as a couple come through for your guests to see.
We feel a responsibility as professionals to provide options when a couple can't make up their mind. I always urge the couples we entertain to consider first dance songs that have some sort of meaning, even it's a s simple as "We just like the song".
