What to Play for Your Wedding’s First Dance?

The wedding’s party really starts with the bride and groom’s first dance. It can be difficult to choose the perfect song – but a local wedding DJ can really help out.

Songs come and go. You can reference top wedding sites like Theknot.com or others for the most popular first dance songs. However, this is a accumulation of stats from across North America. Only a local DJ entertainment business knows what your audience wants.

After all you wouldn’t want to play a song that is popular in California and is a dead beat in Ottawa. That is not a way to start the party.
