"Christmas is a wonderful time of the year for a wedding as everyone is in the mood to celebrate in style. Here are a few things that will help add some extra sparkle to your first dance: Christmas tunes are a great place to start for your first dance song. They are catchy, festive and can be slow, fast, cute, smooth, sexy and suit whatever style of dance you're looking for. Some wonderful song choices include Mariah Carey's All I Want for Christmas is You and Frank Sinatra's White Christmas. One of our favourites is Michael Bublé's Santa Baby. Any of these would be a perfect music choice for your first dance. Think about what the second song will be. This song is THE song to get everyone up and onto the dancefloor with you. At this time of year, the choice is huge, and we all know that the floor fills up with songs such as Slade's Merry Christmas Everybody and Brenda Lee's Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree."... read more
