In our big experience, we worked with many couples and song choices. The music you pick should be meaningful to you, and both of you MUST like it to enjoy the dance. Although it happened that at least 50% of people, or even more, have similar music for their first dance. Is it good or bad? Let’s see all the pros and cons we have to say about choosing one of the top 10 wedding songs.


  •  Definitely, if a lot of people are using that music, it means it is easy to dance to it.
  •  It’s also a safe choice, and you know that it will create a romantic (or dramatic) mood at your wedding.
  •  People will most likely know the words or rhythm of the music and will clap, dance or sing along with you.
  • Those songs are the most traditional “social dances” and you most likely can use what you learn for your wedding later in your life.
  • The band you are hiring probably already knows how to play them.


  •  Consider that your dance will not be that original and different from many other couples.
  •  There are only so many moves you can do with specific kind of music in a few lessons. To do something new and more interesting you will need to take more lessons. ( it’s a con for us, thou :))
  •  Your guests might already have seen many first dances with those songs.

But if all of this doesn’t concern you, you should definitely stick with one of those songs since they will guaranty you a good wedding dance experience!
