Bridal Waltz

Top 50 Wedding First Dance Songs

By Chris Ninni


Planning your big day is, let’s face it, a BIG job. From venues to photographers, flowers to dresses, entertainment to invitations, it almost seems impossible to get everything organised within budget and still keep the reception true to who you are as a couple.

Although there is one moment within all the madness of a reception where everyone stops, all other elements fade away and we are reminded of the love we are celebrating; the Bridal Waltz.
