We asked some of our professional choreographers for wedding dance song advice, this is what they said...
"It's lovely when a couple say the lyrics of their song reflect their relationship. However, I once taught a couple who wanted to jazz up their dance with a snippet of Single Ladies. Because Beyonce sings about putting a ring on a finger, they thought it was a brilliant idea... until I explained to them that the lyric actually reads 'If you liked it then you SHOULD HAVE put a ring on it'!

"Don't think that you have to settle on one song. In my own first dance we started with a short formal piece to 'Moon River' by Andy Williams. Our second song was 'I'm Yours' by Jason Mraz and all our guests joined us. It was lovely to see all our guests dancing together, plus it got everyone on the dance floor."
By Amy Nelson, Director of Wedding Day Dance UK
"For me a personal song is always best, a song you heard when you first met or on your first date. A story behind why you chose the song is always a great one too."
By Kerry, one of our wedding dance choreographers in Hertfordshire
