Getting Creative with your First Dance Song

One of my favorite parts of the wedding day is the first dance as husband and wife.  I love music.  I always have.  And I love all kinds of music.  Music defines moments and memories - which is why the first dance is so special.  Some of my favorite first dances have been unique in some way, whether it be a faster song or an uncommon one or even one that the bride & groom recorded themselves singing (yes, that happened!).  On a regular basis I will hear songs, some old and some new, and think to myself how they would make a great first dance song!  So on that note, I have compiled a list of songs to help you get creative in picking your first dance song!
