You're first dance will be a part of your wedding day that you will always remember and the song choice should be special to you. Some couples already have a 'song,' whereas other couples don't.

If you don't already have a song choice in mind, then look for something that resembles your relationship perfectly, or think of a song that you both love and both sing along to whenever it comes on. Make sure that you choose a song you love because after your wedding day this song will always resemble your first dance together as husand and wife. And should therefore bring you joy, happiness and nostalgia everytime you hear it.
