18 Wedding First Dance Songs That Aren’t At All Cheesy Courtesy of HuffPost Weddings

Recently, as the owner of DJ Bri Swatek, Spinning with Style, I had the honor of being interviewed by the Huffington Post’s Brittany Wong for her HuffPost Weddings article “18 Wedding First Dance Songs That Aren’t At All Cheesy.”

My advice? “Focus on lyrics first. As a couple, you want to find a lyric that speaks to who you are together. Second, you want to find a sound and a tempo that’s easy to dance to ― especially if you plan to invite your friends and family to join you out on the dance floor.” To find out more about my thoughts on selecting a First Dance for your wedding (and to find out which song I chose to recommend), make sure to read Brittany’s article on HuffPost Weddings!
