First Dance Tips

Picking the perfect first dance can be daunting, here are some tips to help you on your way.


There are countless lists and guides out there for picking the correct first dance song. They’ll often list the same songs over and over, usually your typical romantic ballad or something that’s been popular this year. Planning a simple wedding means you can focus on a few main details and do them extremely well.


Your song doesn’t have to be anything too outlandish or crazy, as long as it means something to you and reflects your style that’s all that matters. After all, it’s your special moment. The guest list is always a bit of a tricky one, but know having a simple wedding doesn’t mean it has to be a small one.


Believe us when we say that if you have the chance to have your first dance song performed live – go for it! A huge part of a simple wedding that reduces stress is to spend within your means (or your hosts if you are lucky enough to have parents or others who are able to help you out).

There can be a real Keeping up with the royal family thing going on in the realm of weddings, but unless you have $5 million to spend, it’s not even worth trying. There is no point in over streching your wedding. It will simply add stress to the proceedure.


You have a delicious wedding cake, so do you really need the dessert table? You have wine and beer for people to drink at the reception. You’ll be surprised at how 3 minutes of your first dance can feel like eternity for some couples. What will often happen is that guests are invited up to join you after a couple of verses.


Looking at a host of venue and location options will give you a feel for how much or how little needs to be done with a potential ceremony or reception venue to create the atmosphere you are looking for. Believe us when we say your band will absolutely love you if you do this.
