How to choose the perfect First Dance song

Here are 7 ways to help you decide the most important song of the night:

1. Reflect on Your Relationship: Take time to reflect on your relationship and the journey you've taken together. Consider songs that hold special meaning for both of you, whether they remind you of significant moments, express your feelings for each other, or capture the essence of your love story. What's the song you hear on the radio/Spotify/Apple and you 'instantly' think of your fiance'?


2. Consider Your Musical Tastes: Think about your musical tastes as a couple. Do you share a favorite artist, band, or genre of music? Are there particular songs that you both love or that have played a significant role in your relationship? Explore these options as potential first dance song candidates.


3. Listen to Lyrics: Pay attention to the lyrics of potential first dance songs. Look for songs with lyrics that resonate with you as a couple and accurately express the emotions you want to convey during your first dance. Consider whether the song's message aligns with your relationship and the tone you want to set for the dance.


4. Try Out Different Styles: Don't limit yourself to one specific style of music. Experiment with different genres and styles to find the perfect fit for your first dance. Whether you prefer a classic ballad, a romantic pop song, a soulful R&B track, or a timeless jazz standard, explore a variety of options to see what feels right for you.


5. Think About Danceability: Consider the practical aspects of dancing to your chosen song. Is it a tempo that you feel comfortable dancing to? Does it have a natural rhythm that lends itself well to dancing? Think about how you envision moving together on the dance floor and choose a song that suits your dancing style and abilities.


6. Get Input from DJ Jim: Consult with me for recommendations (as I have several dynamic playlists you can view) and advice on choosing the perfect first dance song. I can offer expertise on song selection, suggest alternatives you may not have considered, and help ensure that the song you choose works well in a DJ set.


7. Trust Your Instincts: Ultimately, trust your instincts and choose a song that feels right for you as a couple. Whether it's a classic love ballad, a modern hit, or a lesser-known gem, the most important thing is that the song resonates with you and holds personal significance in your relationship. When you find the perfect first dance song, you'll know it.
