How Will You Choose Your First Dance Song?

By Azure Nelson, Published Jul 26, 2011

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!
