Choosing a first dance song for your wedding in Wales
“Music is the divine way to tell beautiful, poetic things to the heart..”
As a singer, it’s an absolute privilege to be asked to sing the first dance song, the song that will whisk all Newlyweds back to the day they said I do!
It is also very nerve-wracking and quite emotional! I always focus on a spot above the dance floor to stop myself from getting all teary eyed!
Perfect Day Party Band have performed so many first dance songs - these are some of our recent ones:
At Last – Etta James
Our Bride & Groom performed a waltz for their first dance to “At Last” and it was stunning! The song
wasn’t easy to learn, but after several rehearsals with the band it soon became one of my favourites!
All My Life – K-Ci & Jo Jo
I was so excited for this, as I had grown up with this song and it was so well known – although some of the band hadn’t heard of it! Crazy!
Tom our Lead Male singer took the main vocals for this, while I sang harmonies. The Bride & Groom
were overjoyed and the dancefloor was full the whole night!
Wind Beneath My Wings – Better Midler
I am sure you will agree, Bette Midler has released some incredible songs and we were asked to perform this number for a Father/Daughter dance! I’ve always enjoyed singing this song and it was
so lovely to see the bond with the Bride and Father of the Bride! I actually choked up during this
Starman – David Bowie
We performed this at a wedding in March and it was perfect – such a great choice of song! Perfect
Day are big fans of David Bowie and thoroughly enjoyed playing this for the first dance!
How do you choose a first dance song?
Always choose the songs together – you are both celebrating this day and will want to remember the
special moments…this is one of them!
Make it personal – the song could be from your favourite film, favourite singer – it could be the song
you heard when you first met?!
Slow/Upbeat – There isn’t a right or wrong choice in song! Some people prefer an up-tempo song to
allow for other guests to join them half way through, some think traditionally it should be slow.
