22 songs for your first dance

Your first dance as a newly married couple is a once in a lifetime moment. Be it a slow dance or a choreographed number, this dance is sure to stay with you for a long time.

Because it is such an important moment, it is extremely important to choose the right song as it might just be the song for your spouse and you, especially if you don’t already have your own special song.

Your first dance song does not have to be one that is for slow dances. Instead, it can be just about anything you want. From the classic slow swaying dance or even a hip-hop number, it all depends on you!
