Choosing the first dance song is something many couples leave to the last minute – and then regret that. Trust us, even if you’re not massively into music, it can take a lot longer than you think to narrow it down to just one track that you both agree on. Even if you already have a track that’s ‘your song’, it might not be something you want to dance to – or share with your family and friends. Speaking of whom, your nearest and dearest may have opinions about which song you should have. While it’s nice to listen to suggestions, remember, ultimately it’s your choice! Don’t let yourself get derailed by wedding meddlers.
