elegant wedding first dance songWe meet the most interesting people entertaining at weddings. Most couples select a popular song from today or yesteryear for their first wedding dance song. Every now and then, we meet a couple that thinks outside the box and selects a piece of classical music, which really makes for an elegant wedding first dance song.

Perfect for good dancers

Classical music is especially appropriate for couples who are good dancers. If you and your betrothed are into dancing, you’ll like the opulent potential of a choreographed dance to classical music.

Take Waltz No. 2 by the great Russian composer, Dmitri Shostakovich. This is a wonderful piece of music for weddings, perfect to showcase your elegant ballroom dancing form. Watch below:

Simply beautiful. For a Latin twist, you’ll dazzle your wedding guests if you can pull off a tango to the classic Brazilian song, For una Cabez by Alfredo Le Pera and Carlos Gardel. Here’s a scene from the movie “Easy Virtue” where Colin Firth tangos with the sultry Jessica Biel. Watch:

The Cinderella approach

For the ultimate in elegance and class, try the Cinderella approach. We refer to the uber romantic La Valse de L’amour by Patrick Doyle, better known as the ‘ball dance’ from the 2015 movie, “Cinderella.” You may not know Mr. Doyle, but you know his music. He scored the music for a slew of hit movies, including “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire,” “Thor,” and the upcoming “Death on the Nile.”

He wrote a lovely waltz for Cinderella. Can you picture yourself dancing to this music?

Relax, you don’t have to buy a wedding dress as expensive as Cinderella’s. Besides, you’ll know from the movie that her gown was made with magic.
