The first dance is the cornerstone of most evening wedding receptions, a tradition which is upheld by the majority of Brides and Grooms and the centre piece of the evening.
It has become common for some couples to rehearse a first dance but there are still many Brides and Grooms who will take to the dance floor without much of a plan of what they are going to do other than slow dance to one of their favourite songs .
Whether you are planning an elaborate , well drilled routine or just a shuffle on the dance floor in front of your family and friends there are certain songs which superbly lend themselves to being first dance songs.
