Wedding First Dances and special songs for your first dance:
 

I wanted to write a little bit about some of my favorite First Dance Wedding songs that I have played over the past months which were selected by Bride and Grooms for their special wedding day. Now keep in mind, some of these have been selected over the past year or so meaning these are nothing new but I wanted to give you some of my favorites that in my eyes have captured the attention of all the guests at the weddings I have had the pleasure of attending.

Please note that I did not list these in any particular order of priority or preference…..

* Bless the Broken Road – Rascal Flats
* It’s your love – Tim McGraw and Faith Hill
* Sunday Morning – Maroon 5 (great song, this song was picked by many couples because it is more upbeat, meaning they didn’t want somethingtoo slow, they were right, just perfect.
* Just you and me by Rie Sinclair (used only once but loved it, this is actually from a Soap Opera, very nice pick!)
* Let’s stay together – Al Green (now I know it’s an old one but it does something to the crowd, everyone knows the song and it has this classy, upbeat feel that really gets everyone happy).
* You and Me – Lifehouse

Although, I said, that I would not give you the top wedding song choices, I will (in my opinion) give you my favorite two which are… Bless the broken road by Rascal Flats and Let’s Stay Together by Al Green. These win my top two picks!

I will also be compiling a very extensive list of the Top Wedding Songs of 2007 and 2006. It fascinates me with the song picks that Bride and Grooms choose for their wedding day because 99% of the time it really does fit who they are and you really enjoy watching them spend that special moment on the dance floor which they whole heartedly deserve after months and possibly years of planning. If you are looking for some more popular wedding songs, please keep visiting us and bookmark our blog, we are getting ready to add some extensive wedding play lists that you will find very valuable to your wedding planning song play list.

However, in the meantime - yes there are many great websites that have song lists but the one thing I frequently see that I would like to change and be different is that they ALL (well 95% of them) have the same cookie cutter, boiler plate list that someone copied and pasted from another website and that drives me crazy! What I am doing is hand picking songs that I have seen work with actually clients who have taken the time to hand pick their songs and many even took dance lessons to perform their first dance. That doesn’t mean you need to take wedding dance lessons too but I just wanted to drive the point home on how special these picks were.

The best wedding first dance music advice I can give to you future Bride and Grooms TO BE is take some time and listen to songs in their entirety. Check the lyrics as I said in a previous post and find the song that is right for you both. Find something that fits you and who you are to each other. See I do I have a sensitive side to me! Amazon.com has many sound clips by the way in which you can listen too. I highly recommend them.

Good luck whatever you choose! More to come… DJ Dave out...

    "I don't want my kids dropping F-bombs and thinking it is OK to steal things and evade the police. The speed of your internet connection is usually directly responsible for buffering, so if you are usually unable to stream video from the internet without having to endure plenty of loading time as the file downloads temporarily to your PC, then it might be worth investing in a faster broadband deal. Also, if they have a gradual link, the video may perform again really badly or not at all.

    With internet radio, you get pretty much what you want, when you want.
    The table top radio connects to the internet using Wi-Fi or Ethernet cable, and searches for stations by country,

    choice but to take what was given to them as their "lot in life.

    This idea would be perfectly done with camping, it allows a camper to acquire
    the utmost relaxation which is the basic objective of the
    activity. Also, bigger animals may flock to the campsites:
    foxes, badgers and in some areas even bears may come
    uninvited, attracted by the smell of food and leftovers.

    s better to use whole foods made from scratch for good health.
    For many working to lose weight, one failure is enough to get them off the path to success.
    Do not be tempted to lose weight as quickly as you can,
    because a crash diet will have you eating less than a thousand calories a day slowing down your metabolism.

    Believing that you are actually starving, it releases
    chemicals that actually make it harder to lose
    weight in an effort to conserve energy. Vinson had participants keep their normal diet and exercise routines (or lack thereof) and merely added the green
    coffee. Many people don't have the time to weight themselves every day, but checking the scale on a regular basis can definitely help when you're working to
    lose weight and keep it off.

    As a wedding DJ i often find that each wedding i play at seems to be different, just when you think you've got enough music, you get to another gig where they ask for totally different songs so i would say as a DJ just keep collecting as much music as you can.
