So the time may have come to choose the song for the "First Dance". Just the thought of this could send any calm Bride or Groom into a panic. Maybe your feeling nervous of having to show off your dance moves in front of all your family and friends. Your other half might have two left feet, just like my Husband (ssssh do not tell him I said that). Then again the groom might have the moves of John Travolta and the hips of Patrick Swayze or the Bride could be just as "Flawless" as Beyonce.
For some couples choosing their song can be so simple. It could be"that song" the one that was playing when they first meet or their first date song. Choosing the song also depends on the personality of the couple. Are you serious,hopeless romantics, fun,adventurous,playful or flirty The type of music you are both interested in also impacts on the song choice. Who knew it was all so complicated PHEW.....

I do not know about you but my fantasy dance would definitely have to be "Time Of Our Lives" it's just the dream. "Nobody puts baby in the corner"
Our first dance was "At Last" by Etta James. Beyonce also does a beautiful version of this. When I heard her sing it,I was like "that's the one" and luckily for me my Husband loved it too. I have two favorite parts to a wedding the brides entrance and the first dance both make me cry. I think they are the two most magical moments.
Would you think about getting dance lessons? To make your first dance extra special or have your bridal party join in and make it a big performance. I think it is more of an American thing to do the second, not sure if it is a big over here.
I have picked a selection of songs, each with a link.They go from the sweet,simple and romantic to ones with attitude, movement and fun.
Hoping these might give you a helping hand in making the decision. I am a big Beyonce fan,so naturally I have a added some of her songs to the list.
