It’s a time when the newlyweds take center stage and share an intimate moment together, surrounded by their loved ones. However, selecting the perfect first dance song can often be a daunting task. As a mobile DJ with years of experience in curating unforgettable wedding experiences, I’m here to guide you through the process and help you find the ideal song that will make your first dance truly extraordinary.

1. Reflect on Your Love Story

Your first dance song should reflect your unique love story and evoke emotions that resonate with you as a couple. Take a trip down memory lane and reminisce about the songs that hold special meaning in your relationship. Was there a song playing during your first date or a memorable moment? Consider incorporating those nostalgic tunes into your first dance.

2. Consider Your Preferred Music Genre

Everyone has their preferred music genre, and your first dance song should be one that resonates with both of you. Whether you love the timeless elegance of a classic ballad, the upbeat rhythm of a contemporary pop song, or the romantic melodies of a soulful track, choose a genre that reflects your personalities and sets the tone for the evening.

3. Lyrics and Meaningful Messages

Pay attention to the lyrics of the potential songs you’re considering. Look for lyrics that convey a meaningful message, tell a story, or capture the essence of your relationship. It’s important to select a song with lyrics that speak to you as a couple and create an emotional connection with both of you and your guests.

4. Tempo and Dance Style

Consider the tempo and dance style you envision for your first dance. Do you imagine a slow, romantic sway or an energetic choreographed routine? The tempo of the song should match your dance style and comfort level. If you’re unsure about the dance style, consult with your mobile DJ or a dance instructor who can offer guidance and suggestions.

5. Seek Professional Advice

Don’t hesitate to reach out to your mobile DJ for expert advice and song recommendations. Experienced DJs have an extensive library of music across various genres and can provide valuable insights based on their knowledge of what works best for first dances. They can help you find the perfect song that aligns with your preferences and fits the atmosphere you want to create.


Choosing the perfect first dance song for your wedding is an exciting part of the planning process. By reflecting on your love story, considering your preferred music genre, focusing on meaningful lyrics, matching the tempo to your dance style, and seeking professional advice, you’ll be well on your way to selecting a song that will make your first dance a cherished memory.
