What will you choose as your song for your First Dance? It is one of the most frequently asked questions you will be asked as a newly engaged couple. Most first dances are songs which mean something to the bride and groom. Maybe a song you first danced to or one, which reminds you of a special event. (Ours was 10 million bicycles in Beijing!). Other couples may choose songs to fit around the theme of the wedding, or one that is just plain romantic. If you don’t already have a meaningful song to you both, choosing a song for the first dance can be difficult for some couples.
