FAQs

When selecting your wedding love songs, look at songs that mean the most to you first. These songs create the most special moments during a wedding day.  From there, look at the lyrics of the song and determine if the song represents your love for each other. 

Lastly, look at the tempo.  If you want a slow song to dance to, pick a song with a slow tempo.  Otherwise, look at a faster-tempo song.  However, the faster the song, the more practice the dance will take.
