The first dance is an important moment at a wedding celebration. You’re going to think back to that moment the second you hear your song on the radio forever. So you want to choose the right song – one that you’ll be happy to have played at a 20th or even a 50th anniversary party. Here are a few common mistakes to avoid:

  • Choosing a song the band doesn’t know – Some bands are willing to learn a song for your first dance, but you’re going to want to check. Be sure to let them know well in advance, so they have time to get it right.
  • Not thinking about how long the song is – It gets awkward when the couple is out there alone for more than 3 to 3.5 minutes. Really, the shorter the song, the better. The photographer will get the best shots in the first minute of the dance anyway.
  • Not reading through the lyrics – Maybe you think you know all the words to a song, but it’s probably better to read over the lyrics. Sometimes a song seems like a love song, but when you take a closer look, the words don’t fit the vibe for a wedding celebration.
