choosing the perfect first dance song for your wedding

If you don’t already a have “a song”, choosing a first dance song for your wedding reception can be one of the toughest decisions you’ll make. Trust me – it took us a year, and then we finally found the perfect song randomly: Ernie and Bert singing “But I Like You (despite our differences)”. It was catchy, cute, mentioned pigeons and paperclips, and went PERFECTLY with our choreographed dance! Our guests loved it – and we loved spending time together during our dance lessons. (TIP: take dance lessons, if only to have one night a week where you DON’T talk about the wedding!)

Anyhoo, finding the perfect first dance that a) represents your relationship, and b) evokes an emotion (tears? joy? laughter?) from your guests can be tricky.  Here’s a starter list that may help!
