One of my favorite things about wedding days is watching the bride and groom start their life together with a dance. I especially love finding out what song the couple chooses for this special dance. I think the music choice is a fabulous representation of the couple and it gives me a little more insight into their taste and lifestyle. Sometimes I even tear up while watching the happy couple and thinking about how momentous of an occasion I am witnessing.
So in the spirit of first dances, here are my personal top 5 first dance songs!
5. Into the Mystic- Van Morrison
We had several couples dance to this as their first dance this Spring.
4. Danny’s Song- Kenny Loggins
This would be adorable for a young couple just starting out in their lives!
3. This Will Be (An Everlasting Love)- Natalie Cole
Natalie’s voice makes this song so touching and heartfelt.
2. For Once In My Life- Stevie Wonder
“For once, unafraid, I can go where life leads me, And somehow I know I’ll be strong.”
1. With This Ring- The Platters
As a Carolina girl who grew up shag dancing on the boulevard, this is my favorite first dance song!
