First Dance Songs

Popular First Dance Songs for Your Unique Hudson Valley Wedding from DJ Bri Swatek

As the owner of DJ Bri Swatek, Spinning with Style, I am often asked by my couples for First Dance song suggestions.  What are the best wedding songs and the most popular current wedding music choices?  While a special song should fit your unique style as a couple, looking at current trends in song choices can be a helpful place to start.
