Your first dance as a married couple is a special moment that really kicks off your wedding reception. The song you choose to dance to should demonstrate who you are as a couple. If you’re the type of couple who loves to have fun and wants your audience laughing at a dance routine you came up with, a more upbeat song could be for you. On the other hand, if you’re the couple who is romantic and wants to spend time cherishing your love, a slower song may be the best option. You can go in many directions with your first dance song, ranging from the classics to a modern song. There are so many more options than just a slow dance.
