Whether you’re planning a wedding on a budget or not, you still want your guests to be entertained and kept on the dance floor all night long. Here’s some tips to help you decide between a DJ or band:

1. Ask for recommendations.

2. See them perform live before you hire them.

3. Consider the size of your venue.

4. Think about playing music for all age groups.

Have you selected your first dance song yet? If not, we have a few ideas to help get you started. We’ve compiled this summer’s top 10 first dance songs from our Songs Gallery and are excited to share them with you. We love that some are more current hits, others a bit more old school. They come from different genres and different artists, but hopefully they’ll inspire you – click the links to hear them! Whether you’ve selected one of these tunes or something else, let us know what first dance song you’ve chosen in the comments!

  1. “‘Cause I Love You” by Lenny Williams
  2. “‘Til Kingdom Come” by Coldplay
  3. “(Today I Met) The Boy I’m Gonna Marry” by Darlene Love
  4. “18th Floor Balcony” by Blue October
  5. “1, 2, 3, 4″ by Plain White T’s
  6. “A Moment Like This” by Kelly Clarkson
  7. “All My Life” by K-Ci & JoJo
  8. “Best Friend” by Tim McGraw
  9. “Amazed” by Lonestar
  10. “At Last” by Etta James

Music has been a part of wedding ceremonies for centuries. Usually, a group of live musicians or a DJ will play processional and recessional tunes, and sometimes even an interlude during the service. However, we’ve recently seen couples perform songs or dance routines themselves during the ceremony. Remember this video from a few years back?

And just this week, this video of a bride singing a Christina Aguilera to her groom as she walked down the aisle went viral – and received mixed reviews from commenters.

Of course, we’ve all grown accustomed to choreographed first dances at wedding receptions but we wanted to know what you thought about these wedding ceremony performances. So tell us:

What do you think about couples singing and/or dancing during their wedding ceremony?
