The First Dance... Stress

Let's face it there is sooo much pressure on your first dance!

Wedding First Dance ideas

Are you a nervous wreck about standing up in front of hundreds of people and performing?

Will it be everything you imagined?

Do you go for a fun dance?

Do you go for a combination of the two?

Best First dance at wedding

The stress is real, and to be honest with you, it's one of our most asked questions from couples, do you have any ideas for a first dance, we just can't decide.

So I thought I would bite the bullet, and put together a list of pros and cons to both sentimental and a fun routine, as well as some of our most memorable song choices from previous weddings and their first dance.

Are you dreading the thought of performing a full-blown routine?

If that's you then I would recommend a nice slow meaningful song, you can sway a couple of turns and then invite all your family and friends to join you on the dancefloor to take the pressure off. here is a shortlist of songs that are perfect for this

You and I - Tom Walker

Nothing Really Matter's - Mr. Probs

No one - Alicia Keys

Latch - Sam Smith

Over and Over again - Nathan Sykes

Can't take my eyes off of you - Lauren Hill

Now if you are wanting something a bit more upbeat and maybe you are even considering some dance lessons to make the most of this show-stopping performance check out Start the dance, for that.

Here are some songs that you can really let loose to and dance the night away.

Never too much - Luther Vandross

Rather Be - Jess Glynne

Signed Sealed Delivered - Stevie Wonder

Love will keep us together -Captain and Tennille

Hold my hand - Jess Glynne

Whatever you decide make sure it's something that isn't going to stress you out the whole day, You have a lot to get through before it gets to the First Dance and you want to enjoy it, so eliminate the stress and enjoy your day!

Also, make it personal, you might have a song that brings back memories for you and your partner, if that's the case then go for it, we actually performed part-time lover at a wedding. It's a song about cheating, haha but the coupe loved it (they are still happily married)

It's your day so do you.

I've done some of the work so you don't have to check out our Spotify First dance Inspiration playlist here
