Your first dance as a newly married couple is symbolic; it is the first time outside of the ceremony you are officially announced as husband and wife. As you take your first steps together on the dance floor, you are reminded that your relationship is symbolic of your dancing, it ebbs and flows with the changing tempo, you have synchronized your life together just as you synchronize your footsteps on the dance floor.
The first dance also symbolizes the beginning of your reception party, the big kick off of your celebration. Family and friends have gathered here besides you to celebrate your new life together. What you select for a first dance song should be important and meaningful to you as a couple. Perhaps it is the song you first danced to when you were courting, or perhaps it is a song your groom dedicated to you. Or maybe it is the song which played as he proposed. Whatever you select, know that you will be reminded of your wedding day every time you hear it – and the fond memories of your first day together.
