Alternatives to Ed Sheeran for your first dance!

Guess the 1st dance: Ed Sheeran?

Ed Sheeran has certainly cornered the wedding market by releasing a series of romantic songs which work so well not only as first dances, but also for ceremonies.  And why not indeed?!  His songs are well written, and totally on target!  There is nothing wrong with choosing one of his amazing productions for your first dance, but is it really what you want?  This is reflected when you ask your wedding guests to “Guess the first dance”, something which features with my Master of Ceremonies service.  I often supply and distribute these fun cards during the meal to entertain your guests.  As you can see, there are usually about 5 to 10 people who think it’ll be an Ed Sheeran song!

Some funny choices of first dance

There are really no rules when choosing a first dance for your wedding.  Your first dance is a great way to start the evening party at your wedding reception. It can be a slow track, a fast track, something with really meaningful lyrics, or even a complete party banger.  I have written a blog article on first dances which should give you examples of first dances chosen by my clients in 2018 – check it out now!  My main advice is let your mind choose something totally you, not something expected.
