Selecting Wedding Love Songs
When selecting your wedding love songs, look at songs that mean the most between 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.
