The most romantic songs for the first dance

One of the most wonderful moments of a wedding day is the first dance. After the ceremony, it is the most intimate moment that the bride and groom share, despite being surrounded by all friends and family. 

Moreover, the first dance song is something you will always remember. If there is a song with a particular story between you and your partner, you don’t have to think twice. However, if choosing the first dance song gives you a headache, check the playlist and find the one that seems right for you two.
