For Your First Steps Together

Songs

For years to come, when you hear this song you will say, "Awww, this is our song!"

This list represents actual songs used by our clients for their weddings. The first dance songs are divided by category and at the bottom there are father/daughter dance songs, mother/son dance songs, and some wedding party dance songs. We hope this complete list helps you think of all possibilities for your dance so you can make the best choice.

If you can't seem to decide on one, that's okay. You can narrow it down to a few songs or even just a genre and we can help you choose by showing you the dances that go with them. Usually that does the trick!
