What is the best first dance song?

For this question, there is no right or wrong answer. This is a subjective choice based upon your relationship and your vibe that you are going for. Some couples even start off a dance slow, then lead into a fun break dance on the dance floor.

When should I choose my first dance song in the process of planning?

When you start booking your vendors you should also consider choosing your first dance song. It's better to plan ahead than wait until last minute to choose a meaningful song.

How can I make my first dance special?

Making your first dance special is as simple as choosing a song that has meaning to you both as a couple. Wedding first dance songs are remembered for years to come so that's special in itself. But, there are other enhancement options that can give you that wow factor upon booking with us. We can offer many different enhancements such as a dancing on the clouds effect, sparklers, and our lighting production. We also have DJ + band combos which will give you the best of both worlds!

See our 5 star reviews on The Knot and Wedding Wire for adding on our live music:

"We added on a saxophonist and percussionist and it was the best decision we made. You get the best of both worlds, a DJ and live music! The selfie mirror was a huge hit, all of my guests loved it!"

"The DJs and MC made our night happen!! Our Percussionist killed it!! And I loved that he didn't mind me or my husband stepping in and having fun with the drums, I will never forget that!"
