Last of the wedding music blog entries – so it will be a long one!

The ceremony is over, the nerves are all fine, you did it! Congratulations,it’s official – you’ve walked down the aisle, said I do, been toasted and speechified, cut the cake, and now it’s time for the dancing to begin!

There are many MANY variations on the first dance. Sometime’s the couple start out dancing on their own, and then the bridal party join in, and then the rest of the guests. Sometimes there is a father daughter dance for the bride first, then the groom and his mother join in, then the bride and groom dance with each other and everyone joins in. Some weddings just have free for all dancing from the very get go. 

All of these variations are great, it’s YOUR wedding, and whatever suits you is perfect – don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

I have listed some truly awesome songs for each dance variation, so that you can pick and choose to truly personalise your wedding music. I hope they inspire you and that your celebration is filled with laughter and love.

Thanks for reading all of my wedding music blogs this far, and if you are planning to get married soon, I wish you and your fiance a million years of happily ever after – now Go!! DANCE!!
