There are many aspects to a wedding which you can put your stamp on in order to make it unique to you both. However the first dance is probably the part guests look to for the biggest insight into you as a couple – so how do you get it right?
Choosing a wedding song sets the tone of your day, but also your relationship. The song you pick to dance to for the first time as partners must say something your personalities, your outlook and get everyone in the mood for a good party to celebrate your future happiness together!
Hire a Wedding Band
Playing your favourite song through a music system does the job good enough; but imagine having a live band kick off the evening’s entertainment by playing it to you both in front of all your guests. Bands for weddings are a great idea to make it just that little bit more special and you can tailor your choice of band to your musical tastes. There are lots of themes to pick from Bollywood, jazz, classical, Latin music and much more, depending on what your tastes are – and this makes your wedding completely unique to you.
Look Back at Key Events in Your Lives
If you look back over the special times you’ve shared together, think about whether there are any songs with words which reflect these times. Are they significant lyrically? Was there any particular music playing when you first met or when you shared your first kiss?
Choose Music from the Decade You Met
If you met in University in the late nineties or early noughties, for example, you could follow the lead of the Royal couple and choose some of the songs that will have been played at your Student Union. Music from the time you met is nostalgic and carries with it a sense of fun that will set the tone for the rest of the evening’s festivities.
If you’re after a big romantic ballad that sums up that the occasion is a celebration of love, then you might want to simple search on the internet for any songs containing the words ‘love’ – you’re sure to find lots of options this way. Then you can just pick your favourite and the one that most suits you.
Good luck and stay fabulous Happy Friday!
