The all important first dance. To prepare for this once in a lifetime (fingers crossed
) moment, some couples take ballroom dancing lessons
, others just wing it.
But when it comes to the song itself, what's your selection criteria?
Are the lyrics extremely important, or is it just that the song hold a special meaning to you and your groom
? Many times, songs couples' love aren't quite as romantic as they seem. On the surface they appear to be all about amour, but after listening to the lyrics, a darker message may come through.
For example, Every Breath You Take
by the Police. Sounds super romantic
, doesn't it? Well... it's actually more about stalking than romance... but you'd never know it from the love-filled melody! So are lyrics lacking in romance a deal breaker? And have you tapped into your wedding DJ
's expertise to get ideas?
How important are the lyrics of your first dance song?
