Choosing the song you and your new spouse will dance to for the first time as a married couple is a big deal! So many of our brides and grooms spend a lot of time and brain power, not to mention internet searches, to decide on the perfect song. After all, you want it to perfectly express your relationship, maybe have some sentimental value, and elicit the perfect amount of emotion from those who get to witness your first dance.
With all that goes into choosing such a song, you may want a way to look back and smile on such a fond memory for many years to come. Yes, many couples have a wedding video to review but how often will you really watch it?
We think the song to which you and your spouse shared your first dance should be able to be remembered and thought of often. Here are a few creative ways to commemorate your first dance song:
In this day and age of Pinterest, DIY, and Etsy, there are great options out there to display your song lyrics as art and decor in your home! You can choose to have a print of the lyrics over a wedding photo, a modern design with your wedding date or other detail, or in a beautiful font with a matte frame. The possibilities are endless but here are some to get your wheels turning.
Calling all bold brides and grooms! If tattoos are your thing, having a tasteful design of a line from your first dance song could be a great way to commemorate your wedding day. There is a big tattoo trend now too of not only words in pretty fonts, but also tattoos shared amongst couples. While these aren't all specifically of song lyrics, this may give you some ideas for placement, style, and options.
We love the idea of a pillow with a lyric from your first dance song displayed in your home! It is so perfectly you, romantic, and the epitome of homey (bonus if your first dance was this song). There are a lot of great options out there when it comes to size, style, and where you can buy it- or if you're feeling crafty, you could make it yourself!
4. Chair Sign
This is a great decoration for your reception that you can display all throughout your marriage! Hang it on the chairs at your head or sweetheart table, then take it home as a sweet momento. Again, lots of great ideas and options out there!
Who isn't a fan of those personalized photo blankets you can get at drugstores or photo ordering websites? Why not take it up a notch and add your wedding song lyrics? We LOVE this one we found online- subtle, looks so comfy, and well, it isn't fleece (no hate).
So, how will you choose to commemorate your first dance as husband and wife? Whatever way you choose, we know it will be uniquely you.
