Your first dance

Once the wedding meal is over, it’s time to let your wedding DJ start the party!  One of the highlights of a wedding is undoubtedly the first dance. For some couples, just thinking about this makes them very nervous. For others, it’s a chance to have a lot of fun showing off some cool moves to their friends and family at the start of the party. Most guests will expect the evening party to start with a first dance.  So what are the rules, and what should you choose?  Should you choose an Ed Sheeran track?!

No rules

There is one thing to remember about the first dance; there are no rules! It’s YOUR wedding, so you can choose whatever you want. It doesn’t have to be a slow song where only you dance for 4 minutes! You could choose a fast dance, something with lyrics which mean a lot to you both, a slow dance, or a party track. You may even have both spent time secretly getting dance lessons in order to give everyone a brilliant performance.

If you feel nervous about your first dance, don’t worry, you are not alone. I can ask everyone at the party to join in from the start if you wish.

When we arrange to meet, I will give you a huge list of songs which can be used for your first dance.  You can choose from this list, but do have a think about what YOU would both like.
