Right about now, newly engaged couples across the UK are busy planning their 2017 wedding. Your choice of first dance may not be at the top of your “to do” list, but it’s definitely worth thinking about!

Brides and grooms sometimes ask us if we can suggest a first dance. If we’re a little hesitant in our answer, it’s because the first dance is traditionally a song that means something special to the both of you (although it doesn’t have to be, of course), and we wouldn’t want you to feel that we were suggesting a particular song just because it’s one we know or prefer to play.
