We often get asked by brides, "what do you suggest?", when we start to discuss first dances. Wedding planning is overwhelming. Every little detail needs a decision, and if you're like me, it takes me forever to decide on what I like. I know how making one more decision feels like a mountain. So I want to help you.
First, I think it's super important to try to be different. Why? Your guests have gone to many weddings so attending another wedding can feel like groundhog day. You want to stand out, be unique, be bold with your choice and people will be touched by your choice.
Second, go to YouTube. Make a night out of it - make dinner with your fiancé and listen to songs you find on the platform. YouTube will give you the opportunity to listen to options and something might strike a cord.
Third, is there a song you love but feel like it's been played too many times? Look for a cover! There are many versions of songs that still bring the beauty of the words but adds enough uniqueness to make your first dance magic.
Here are a few choices I picked out:
1. Candace & Michael - Is this Love (cover)
2. Ella Henderson - Yours
3.Leroy Sanchez - Love Someone (cover)
4. Dan & Shay - Speechless
5. Kiana Lede - I Choose You
6. Emily Hackett & Will Anderson - Take My Hand
7. Kina Grannis - I will Spend My Whole Life Loving You
8. Renee Dominique - At Last (cover)
9. Music Travel Love - Stand by Me (cover)
10. Alice Phoebe Lou - Girl on an Island
