How To Choose Wedding Dance Songs

If you are still wondering how to choose wedding dance songs and are getting closer to your special day at the same time you should know that this sometimes is not a simple decision.

One good suggestion on how to choose wedding dance songs is to figure out what the two of you have in common when it comes to music and start there. Almost every singer or group has put out a romantic ballad that may work.

Most couples have a song of their own that speaks to the both of them and signifies their love. Sometimes the trick is though to find a song that would be appropriate for the first dance as a couple at the reception. There are several that would work very nicely and in reality you should have more than one picked out because the band you choose or your hired DJ may or may not perform it, be able to learn it or find it in time for your wedding.

There are a few traditional ballad suggestions here which are old standby favorites that might just come in handy and they are:

– Mariah Carey – Always Be My Baby, We Belong Together, or I Want To Know What Love Is

– Shania Twain – From This Moment, You’re Still The One

– Barbra Streisand – Evergreen

– Bette Midler – Wind Beneath My Wings

– Whitney Houston – I Will Always Love You (make sure you listen to the words carefully before you chose this)

It doesn’t matter if you like the classic stuff or country songs or even something a little more off the beaten path, there is a song for your wedding out there.

That doesn’t mean you should search for months for the perfect song, it probably is sitting there right in front of you. Try to remember the song that was playing on the radio when the two of you first met.

Or when the two of you experienced any of the “firsts” that you did together. Yes, up to and including that first special night you shared together.

This should not be something that stresses you out either, and don’t panic. It may come to you right out of the blue someday and it will speak volumes to you. You will know it when you hear it.

Your best bet is to narrow down your search to a few of your favorites and listen to them over and over and over again to see which one fits the situation the best and then go with it. Make sure you listen to the lyrics to ensure it captures the sentiment shared between you.

Once you have your music picked out, forget about it and let the DJ or band handle things on that end. You have so many other details to work out and things that need your attention especially as the day gets closer and closer.

These tips are great suggestions on how to choose wedding dance songs.
