Wedding music for your perfect first dance

music notes and heartAs Plato once said, “Music gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.”
To me, music is not just background noise, it’s something that can move people, make them feel deep emotions or take them back to a time of happiness or sadness. It’s an important part of any wedding. The good news is, there are decades of great music to choose from.  One of my favourite parts of any wedding is the first dance. I always wait to see what the happy couple has chosen for their first dance as husband and wife. Some couples already have a special song, but for many others, it’s a process of finding the right wedding music that fits both their personalities. When it comes to finding the perfect song, you can make your choice based on your bridal theme, the lyrics or your musical preferences. Try to choose something that reminds you of your spouse-to-be or that speaks to what it feels like to be with one another.
