One of the highlights of your wedding is the first dance. Music for the first dance at your wedding will be remembered by you for many years and is an important choice to make. It is the first dance to open the dance floor to guests, but it has much more significance than that. The choice of song will make a statement about you and your partner as a couple, your personalities, and whenever you hear it on the radio it will remind you of that special day. Such an important song should not be taken lightly, as it will be with you for the rest of your life. In this post, we will look at a few songs that will add something extra to your wedding day.
Music For The First Dance At Your Wedding
Kiss From a Rose by Seal
With its curious waltz time, copious harmonies and sound proportions, this had a very different sound and stood out when it was released in the mid nineties. It is a favorite on the dance floor at weddings because of its classy melody and the rich imagery of the lyrics, which finishes beautifully with:
‘Now that your rose is in bloom A light hits the gloom on the grey’
I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing by Aerosmith
Although Aerosmith are renowned as a hard rock band, the song I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing opened up a new generation to appreciate Aerosmith, and remains a slow dance classic. This ballad has an old and wise feel to it and the lush orchestra arrangement almost overwhelms with romance. Many couples had their first kiss to this song, so it isn’t a surprise to see it become a first dance favorite.
Grow Old With Me by Tom Oddell
Tom Oddell has a way with words, it could have something to do with him growing up listening to the heartbreaking but hopeful music of Tom Waits. The song Grow Old With Me is both passionate and delicate, so much so that you’ll have all your guests in tears if you choose it. Be sure to stock up on hankies.
In addition to choosing the right first song, to get the most out of your music on your wedding day you will need to hire a quality sound system.
