If You Want To Create Your Own List, Check Out These Few Tips
- Make your day memorable by choosing the song that reminds of your 1st date, 1st dance together, 1st meet, 1st trip together or it could be anything.
- Ask your friends and relatives. Let’s say one of your friends might be good at dancing. So why not ask him/her to suggest few tunes for you? Or even better – you could tell your friends to vote for their favorite songs.
- How about picking up the correct tempo? The songs you have selected should be danceable and enjoyable. You don’t want to dance to dull and boring songs, do you?
- If you are relying upon a band or a DJ, ensure to check the playlist once and make sure they play your wedding tracks well.
- Make sure the song you have chosen gives appropriate and relevant lyrics. You might think “Yeah who’d care”, however, just in case it might be unfit for the dance.
