For the bride to be, her wedding day is something she’s likely thought about her whole life.

Okay, brace yourselves here’s where things get real. The couple’s first dance should be to a song that reflects their relationship and love for each other. That’s pretty much it.

The Reception – Time to get your dance on
This part isn’t particularly difficult, we think it’s safe to say we all have in mind what type of music to expect….chicken dance included or Mambo #5. Here, you can select a variety of music and there is no need to stress about getting “exactly the right song.” In fact, you probably should select a variety of music so all your wedding guests will hear something that gets them excited for the party.
Here are some great suggestions for your reception to help get your attendees in the mood to dance. Speak to your DJ about how many songs you should have prepared based on the length of time you expect the reception to last.
