No song is more important for your wedding day than the first dance choice! This is the song you will forever cherish as your first dance as a newly married couple and the main dance that will be caught on camera. Unless you have an obvious song that jumps to your mind, it can feel difficult choosing this pivotal song. Award-winning wedding DJ Mike Readings not only knows good music, but he has seen his fair share of weddings, so sit back and check out his top choices for this important song.

Your first dance song has a lot of expectations, it must be intimate and romantic, as well as meaningful to you as a couple. Additionally, you also want it to reflect your relationship up to this point, with a touch of hope and anticipation for what your married life will hold. This will also likely be the first moment the newlywed couple can take a moment to just enjoy being together.

Every couple is different, and the right song will need to express something personal to you. Perhaps you are looking for something romantic and classic, something that packs a punch, or maybe even a song that will have everyone in the reception dancing alongside you! If you have the same taste in music genres, this may be a simple choice, but what if your musical preferences are at opposite ends of the spectrum?
