Let’s Dance: Destination Inspired Song Picks

The first dance as husband and wife is one of those moments that can tempt even the least emotional wedding guests to get a little teary-eyed. There’s just something about that slow moment and seeing the bride and groom celebrate their new relationship status with a moment just for two.

Some couples know from early-on which song they’ll pick for the special day, while others scramble to find the perfect tune. If you find yourself in the latter group, we’ve collected a few sweet sounds we think would be perfect for a destination wedding.
