Choosing First Dance Songs

Here are some steps to help you choose the perfect first dance song for your wedding:

  1. Reflect on your relationship. What moments and milestones define your relationship? Think about songs that hold a special meaning to you—from your first date, a memorable trip, or other significant times in your lives.
  2. Consider your dance style. If you’re planning on choreographing your first dance, make sure your song fits the style of dance you choose. If you won’t be choreographing your dance, make sure the song is something you feel confident moving to. Slower tempos and simple rhythms make great slow dance songs.
  3. Consider your music preferences. Discuss your favorite music genres, artists, and songs. And make sure to keep an eye out for future DialTones by FêteFone as we curate genre specific playlists!
  4. Listen to the lyrics. First dance songs often live on as “your song.” Make sure you listen closely to the lyrics to make sure your song represents you.
  5. Consider the length. The length of your first dance song depends on how comfortable you feel dancing in the spotlight. If you’re set on a song that feels too long, remember you can always cut it down to a duration that works for you. Or, have others join you on the dance floor part of the way through!
  6. Be true to yourselves. The most important thing about first dance songs are that they are yours! As long as you choose a song that will help you enjoy your first dance together as newlyweds, you can’t go wrong.
