“Unfortunately at the moment, weddings, and celebrations in general, are very different, with many couples having to wait until 2021 to tie the knot. Whilst many are opting for a low-key, smaller gathering because of the pandemic, those who are waiting until 2021 have the benefit of extra planning time and hopefully a safer and more secure wedding next year. The first dance song is one of the most important parts of wedding planning. It may not be a key part of the structure such as transport or dresses, but your first dance song can define the first moments of marriage and will be a trigger for the rest of your married lives. Be sure to stay true to you and your partner and your past together, but most of all don't forget to have fun and show your personalities. You will recall your first dance for the rest of your lives so make your song choice a memorable one...”
