Let your DJ/Band know which ones you love for a memorable first dance! Here's another tip; select a song that has a little bit of tempo (speed). This is the time to "prime the pump" for your guests to let them know what type of night it will be! Super-slow jams would be a snooze-fest and nobody wants that. Cheers!
