Unique First Wedding Dance Songs for Every Taste

Unique First Wedding Dance Songs for Every Taste

How many weddings have you attended where Etta Jame’s sweet and tender “At Last” has been featured for the first dance? Or Al Green’s romantic “Let’s stay Together”…  While they are both meaningful first dance songs — they are arguably overplayed.  Choosing the best melody for that all-important first waltz with your new spouse can be something of  a challenge under the best circumstances. If you’re craving a selection of fresh tunes that aren’t totally overdone, why not consider one of these unique songs — whether you’re an Indie fan or prefer an oldie but goodie.
