First Dance

Your 1st Dance

Your first dance as a newly married couple is often the main event of your evening wedding reception. While some couples love the idea of performing a well-practised routine in front of all your closest friends and family, others are terrified at the very thought. Whether you are at one of these two extremes, or somewhere in between, I aim to make your first dance special, and perfect for you.

First of all you need to choose ‘your song’. Most couples will pick a first dance song that is special to you, maybe a song which you listened to when you first met, or a romantic song which reflects your feelings for each other? Other choices could be music which fits in with the theme of your wedding, or perhaps a light-hearted song which reflects your individual personalities and will make your wedding guests chuckle. There’s nothing wrong with a funny first dance!

Everybody’s wedding is different and there’s no right or wrong time in the evening wedding disco to schedule your first dance. However, as with every aspect of planning your wedding, it’s a good idea to think carefully about when the first dance best fits in to your wedding, rather than adding it as an afterthought. You can also rely on me to make sure that there is an announcement just before the dance so that guests won’t miss out, or chat throughout the whole thing.

Stuck For Ideas?

Below I have listed some of the most popular 1st dance selections. The list is purely to help give you some ideas, I am happy to play any song you choose. If you decide you would like a certain song, or certain version, and it happens to be a song I currently do not own, I will obtain the song before your wedding (providing the track is legally available to download or purchase on CD)
