With many songs within the world, there are actually some that you should avoid choosing for your first dance. Seeing as your first dance should be all about romance, you certainly wouldn’t want to choose a song that sounds romantic, but with lyrics that have an entirely different meaning.

There is no doubt that you will want to create your first dance to be an intimate moment. Therefore, choosing the right song is of utmost importance!

We strive to assist couples in planning their wedding music! That’s why, here at Black Tie Productions, we have gathered some songs that you should avoid choosing for your first dance. If you are curious to learn what these songs are, be sure to continue reading to discover more:

  • Make You Feel My Love by Adele. While Make You Feel My Love sounds romantic, the intimacy is unfortunately just longed for, and not actually present. Therefore, you certainly wouldn’t want to choose this song for your special first dance. You and your partner are in love, and the song you choose should reflect the bond that you share together. Within this song, you will discover that one person is in love with another, who unfortunately doesn’t love them back, which is definitely a negative emotion for a wedding.
  • I Will Always Love You by Whitney Houston. Could I Will Always Love You sound any more romantic? Well, don’t be fooled! Of course, you will always love your partner. However, this song is actually about a break up, and how even though they are no longer together, she will always love him. Your wedding day is all about building your love together, not disposing of it!
  • Just the Two of Us by Will Smith. When you listen to the lyrics of Just the Two of Us, you will surely discover happiness. However, the relationship being showcased, is that between a father and his son, not a couple. A family bond is certainly something to cherish, as the relationship between a parent and a child is truly heartwarming. But, it is definitely not the relationship you want to showcase when dancing with your partner on your wedding day.

Planning your first dance song doesn’t have to be a difficult task! In fact, our DJs here at Black Tie Productions would be honored to assist you in choosing yours.
