10 perfect first dance songs

Picking your wedding songs is a pretty big deal. As we all know, music can make or break the vibe you’re going for – it’s so important to get it just right! From ‘getting ready for the wedding music’ in the morning to the processional, cocktail hour music, reception entrance songs, father-daughter dance song to some cross-generational hits to get your grandparents up and moving, there’s a lot of decisions to make!

There’s also the all-important ‘do not play’ list you’re going to want to give your DJ for songs that while popular, don’t belong at a wedding (like Every Breath You Take by the Police… it’s pretty stalker-ish once you start listening to lyrics a little more closely).
