First Dance Wedding Songs
First dance wedding songs should reflect the romance, love and commitment in the newly wed couple. First dance is an important ritual as the newly wed couple dance for the first time as husband and wife.
If you or your partner can compose a first dance song on your own, this very idea will beat the most beautiful song available. However, if you are not poetic enough, it is a good idea to write a few lines about your relationship and convey your feelings for your partner. This could be in a prose format.
Your first dance should be short, sweet and should have graceful yet crisp movements. The first dance kind of reflects the ground realities of life. The back and forth footsteps, swings, grace, holding hands, etc depict the shades of a lifelong relationship. This kind of shows you that you would have to take your steps back and forth depending on the situation and without stamping on each other’s toes. Grace and the swing tend to show the variations you would see in real life situations. Still you would have to hold your hands and be together, love and respect each other and be committed to each other even in the most extreme situations.
The first dance is often flowed by the father daughter dance and the mother son dance. Three dances back to back should not leave the guests dragged. Hence, make sure all the three dances are short and sweet and are given almost equal space and time.
Since you have to perform as a couple in front of the guests, it is a good idea to practice your dance steps at least 5 times before the wedding. If you are not a good dancer, you can take lessons from professional dance trainers. They adjust with your timings, come to your place and train you even on the weekends. This will save you from unnecessary embarrassment. You can decide on the list of wedding songs along with your partner and the trainer and practice accordingly.
There are many first dance songs you can choose from. Some of the most preferred choices are “Everything I Do” by Bryan Adams, “Because you loved me” by Celine Dion, “I knew I love you” by Savage Gardens, “It had to be you” by Harry Connick Jr., “Could I have this dance” by Anne Murray, “My heart will go on” by Celine Dion, “Always and Forever” by Heatwave and many other romantic and meaningful songs.
It is a good idea to choose a song that both of you can relate to. You can choose a particular song if both of you have good memories about it. This way, you would enjoy dancing on it.
The rhythm of your song depends on the type of dance you choose. You can choose a typical ballroom dance, salsa, cha-cha, tango and many other types of dance forms. The songs you choose should match the tempo of the dance form. There are mixed or multiple versions of one song available in the market. Some of the versions have upbeat rhythms. If you choose a fast dance form, then a song with an upbeat rhythm would suit well.
First dance wedding songs should be essentially romantic but not unreal. They should reflect true love. The couple should make sure they choose the songs that quite depict their relationship and personalities. There are loads of first dance songs available on the internet.
