There are so many choices to be made when planning your wedding.  We can help you with breathtaking Vermont destination wedding locations.  But what about some of the more personal choices?  Picking music for your first dance can seem daunting, but it shouldn’t be.  There are so many choices out there, and it is easy to lean on the internet for help.  First, sit down with your partner and have a brainstorming session.  Think of songs you like.  Is there a song that was playing when you first met?  Or the moment you knew your love was meant to be?  Maybe it’s a song you just love to dance to?  Some couples choose a song that expresses the way they feel about each other, through the lyrics or the music.  There are some fantastic timeless wedding classics like Etta James singing “At Last,” or Randy Travis singing “For Ever and Ever Amen,”  and a google search with give you new ideas too.
