Choosing your First Dance Wedding  Song

This  is one of the most important songs that is played on your wedding day.  It is a song that will forever remind you of your first dance together as Husband and Wife.

Like some couples, this might be an easy choice for you both. You may already have “your song”, a song that has meaning to you, possibly from when you first met or got engaged. But for others, choosing the first dance might not be quite as easy.

The Deltatones - First Dance

When booking The Deltatones we will offer to play the First Dance as part of our wedding package. This means that if the song is not in our repertoire, we will happily learn it for you. Alternatively, you might prefer us to play the original recording on the disco, either way is fine by us.

For some couples, the first dance is that moment  to perform all of those well rehearsed and choreographed dance moves. For others, this can be one of the most nerve-racking times of the day (especially for those with two left feet, speaking from my own personal experience)

The Deltatones - First Dance - Group

If dancing alone to an audience of 200 people isn’t your idea of fun then we’re always on hand to help out. Of course, we won’t join you on the dance floor ourselves but, we will happily invite all of your guests to join you on the dancefloor. This is also a great way of ensuring that the dance floor is packed and ready to continue the party after the first dance.

To help you choose your first dance, we’ve put together a list of some of our favorite requests that we have been asked to learn by previous clients.
