Choosing Your Wedding Dance Music

Choosing the right music is vital in creating the perfect atmosphere for your big day. The music you choose should reflect your personality, your feelings, and your wedding theme. Your wedding day should be remembered as an expression of your love for each other, and your family and friends who are sharing your special day.

When it comes to your first dance music, be sure that the beat is a perfect speed for both of you. You want to make sure to dance well and comfortably to the music, not look out-of-rhythm and uncomfortable.

Always choose a song that has meaning to you both. The key is to pick a track you both love. You'll be more relaxed as you take to the floor and everytime you hear it in the years to come you will be reminded of your big day. It doesn't matter if the song is not trendy or popular. After all, this is your wedding, your day, so be sure that the song speaks to both your hearts.

Choosing your wedding music does require some thought and planning to ensure it matches up well with your wedding day. This day is meant to be one of the most important and enjoyable of your lives, so really spend some time to consider what songs you want to play and when you want them to be played. Background music that might be played during the reception meal and other more casual moments should be a contrast to the the more meaningful first dance or music for the ceremony itself.

Be sure to coordinate with the band, DJ or music group about the sequence of music. You want to make sure you know what song is being played during which moments. After all, you don't want to be caught off guard or not know what to do during a song because you weren't expecting it.
