Song Suggestions

Choosing a song for your first dance - When choosing a song for your first dance, there are many things to consider. What is the mood that you would like to create? Does the song have special meaning for you, or does it somehow describe your relationship? I often suggest picking a song that is fun and romantic, and easy to dance to! If the song is easy to dance to, then you'll be able to relax and enjoy each other for your first dance. Here are just a few suggestions for the first dance:
