For Better or Worse..

choosing the song for your first dance

Selecting your First Dance Song as husband and wife
Choose a song that is special to the both of you. It could be the first song you ever danced to together. For our story on how we chose our first dance song, come back next week. It makes for a funny story ;-) Also, your song should be easy to listen to and have a steady beat. To check this, try clapping your hands to the music. If you get confused as to when to clap, then the beat is probably weak and you may want to choose another song. Ours was a kinda upbeat song. I can't follow beats so I can't comment if our song had a good beat, LOL!

Ask yourself these questions:
Do you want something slow and romantic, or upbeat and fun? (ours was the latter)
Do you want an old classic or something more modern? (classic Filipino love song)
If you are having a live band, will they be able to play your song, or will you play it from a CD? (sung by a live 17-man choir with violin and piano)
