First chance at a first dance?

We all know how the stress of wedding planning can become overwhelming, to say the least. The never ending lists of every possible thing that needs to be organised, while still trying to make it the most romantic day of your life!

If you are one of these lucky soon to be brides or grooms in the thick of planning, here’s something you may have ticked off straight away, or it might still be at the back of your mind. Your first dance song.

It may happen that you and your significant other have had a song that you both love and has been a part of your relationship. You lucky ducks.

For the rest of you it’s a balancing act of trying to find a romantic song that’s not too slow, but not too fast. Something known but not overplayed. Something sweet and romantic without bordering on cringey.
