Wedding Music, Advice from a Wedding Venue Owner: The Last Dance

The day is over, the wedding reception is coming to an end. A year of planning. A beautiful wedding ceremony, a wonderful reception and now it is over….and now you look into the eyes of your spouse and think about the the past year, day, your future.

This dance counts.

It is the commencement, so to speak, of the entire wedding celebration, the start of a life together. In just a few minutes you will leave the familiar surroundings of your youth and start your life as a couple. No longer an individual, you now are bonded forever with your mate.

Choose a song that you can reflect on as you embrace. Choose a song that will be the first dance in a long life together!
