First Wedding DanceOne of the many decisions you will have to make for your wedding day is which wedding song to use for your first dance. You might be feeling a lot of pressure to find the perfect song, and you may be unsure of where to start. There are thousands of songs out there that can work as your wedding song, so it can be overwhelming considering all of your options. While there are quizzes online that can help provide you with the supposed "perfect" wedding song, it's probably best if you go a little more in-depth when making this decision. Here are a few tips to get you started.

Moments in Your Relationship

You may have a song that reminds you of your relationship. Maybe it was the song that you heard on your first date together or the song that was playing when you first said "I love you" to each other. These songs are often something that will stick in the couple's mind forever. Why not consider it for your wedding song? Oftentimes, songs that represent an important part of your relationship are your best option. Not every couple has a song that reminds them of a specific moment though, so this may not be the best option for you if there isn't a specific song that stands out to you.

Songs You Love

Of course, the song should be one both of you love. This will always be tied to your relationship in one way or another, so a song that one of you isn't a huge fan of simply isn't going to work. Maybe the two of you have a band that you absolutely love, perhaps you even attended a concert together. If there is a love song by the band that you think fits your relationship, then this could be a perfect option. Even if it isn't a traditional wedding song, that doesn't really matter. What matters is that it is a song both you and your future spouse love and one that reflects your relationship.

Make a List

You and your future spouse should each make a list of songs to consider. Here are some ways you can get started:

  • Look online for song ideas.
  • Listen to the radio or go through your music collection.
  • Ask friends or family members for advice.

When you are done, exchange lists. Perhaps the two of you will have some of the same songs on your lists. This can help you narrow things down quickly. Even if there aren't, your future spouse may have a song written down that you love but did not think of, or vice versa.

If the two of you are both stuck and having a hard time coming up with a list, perhaps you should think of a genre you would like your wedding song to be from. Do the two of you want a country song or do you want something a bit more upbeat? This can help get the ideas flowing.

No Pressure

While it may seem like a big deal, it isn't the end of the world if you don't have a perfect wedding song. The fact is, not many people are going to remember your wedding song as much as they remember other aspects of your wedding. Don't think that your marriage is doomed to fail just because you can't find the perfect song. You might even want to ask your pastor or someone in your wedding party to help you find a wedding song if it's causing you stress.

For some, finding a wedding song is a piece of cake. For others, it can be a bit of a challenge. Hopefully, these tips will help make the process a little bit easier.
