First wedding dance: Choice of song and choreography

Are you a wedding vendor?

A couple's first dance at their wedding is one of the most magical and indelible moments they will experience together. It is an opportunity to express their love and union through the art of dance, as well as make their official first appearance as a newlywed couple. Choosing a song and creating a choreography can seem challenging, but with the right tips, you can turn this challenge into a treat.

Song Selection

The song for your first dance should be something that expresses you and connects you. It can be a song that you have associated with your relationship, one that tells your story or just one that you love and makes you feel good. Whether you prefer classical music or contemporary pop, it's important that the song reflects your personality and style as a couple.

To choose correctly, consider the following:

Emotional Value

Choose a song that connects you and reflects your story. It can be the song that was playing when you met, or a song with lyrics that express your feelings for each other.

Choose a song with a rhythm that you are comfortable dancing to. Whether you prefer a slow and romantic song or something faster and more rhythmic, it's important that you feel comfortable and connected to the music.


Think about the duration of the song. A very long song can become tiring for you and your guests. If your favourite song is too long, you can discuss with the DJ or band about a shortened version.

Expert Advice

Don't hesitate to consult professionals such as choreographers or musicians who can suggest songs based on your preferences and the desired style of your dance.

For choreography, you have two main options: create your own or hire a professional. If you are feeling creative and comfortable, you can choose a simple choreography that you could learn and practice together. If you prefer something more impressive or don't feel comfortable enough with your dance skills, choosing a professional choreographer can provide you with an unforgettable experience.

Preparation and Rehearsals

The success of a first dance is based on preparation. Start rehearsals early, ideally a few months before the wedding, so that you have enough time to become familiar with the choreography and feel comfortable performing it. Frequent rehearsals also help to boost confidence and avoid last-minute stress.

Choosing the song for your first dance is an opportunity to share a deeply personal moment with your guests, capturing the love and unity that defines you as a couple. With the right tips and a little planning, your first dance can be one of the most memorable moments of your big day.
