Choosing Your First Dance Song- Komodo Music DJs Perth

bride and groom dancing, no face showingThe first dance between the Bride and Groom is the most important song of the night. It is three and a half minutes of the two of you looking at each other, holding one another close and smiling, knowing that after everything, you finally got here.


So how do you choose the perfect song for your perfect moment?


This is one of the hardest questions the DJ is ever going to ask you.


A lot of couples are not super enthusiastic about dancing, let alone in front of family and friends and they plan to invite everyone up as soon as humanly possible. But just because you aren’t going to be waltzing around like professional dancers, the song you choose is still very important not only for everyone watching, but also on an emotional and sub conscience level for the pair of you.


We DJs can give you thousands of suggestions but in the end if needs to be something that speaks to the pair of you. Some things you may wish to keep in mind when choosing your First Dance song:


Lyrics- Ensure you listen to them and know what the song is about. The last thing you want is to pick a song that is about cheating, breakups, sexual acts or drugs and not even realise it.

Beat- Regardless of whether the two of you decide to do a “Waltz” or just a “Bridal Shuffle”, listen to the beat and tempo of the song and see if you can actually dance to it. There are a lot of beautiful songs that are too fast or too slow to be a first dance. Ensure you both stand in your living room and try a few moves before making your final selection.

Importance- Does this song have any special meaning to you or is it “just a song”. It is always better to have a special connection to your choice because that is what will make it YOUR song.

Compromise- Most of the time, couples have completely opposite tastes in music, sometimes even to extremes where one will refuse to listen to their partners choices. This song is one of the few that should be agreed upon happily, not begrudgingly. If the taste in music is SO extreme, see if there is an artist or a genre you both can agree on you enjoy and work from there.


Komodo Music has over 10,000 songs at its disposal and anything we don’t have, we will get for you, all you have to do is tell us what you want. If you need any help in choosing your song, let your DJ know and we will come prepared with some ideas to get you started:-)

iPod Wedding Vs. Wedding DJ- Komodo Music, Perth

When meeting potential clients at Wedding Expos, there is one response I get more than any other why they aren’t having a DJ:


“We are going to use an iPod”


*Head Desk*


Don’t get me wrong! Using an iPod for a weddings can be appropriate…but the fact is, there is only one time when using an iPod instead of a DJ at a wedding or corporate event is acceptable:


When you do not want dancing, just background music, use and iPod.


And that is it…If you are having a day wedding or a casual after work event, feel free to bust out the iPod with your favorite mix, but the simple fact is if you want dancing you need a DJ or a Band.


An iPod cannot read a crowd, and iPod cannot mix songs, and and iPod cannot control what people choose. A DJ can!


Over 1/5 clients who book Komodo Music say the reason they went with a DJ is they went to a iPod Wedding and nobody danced. It may have saved the couple some money, but it certainly didn’t save the reception.


If you are worried about not hearing your favorite songs, ensure you write your “Must Play” list of songs that have to be played at your wedding. A good DJ will ensure every one of your songs will be featured.


At the end of the day, you will have more fun at your wedding reception or event if everyone is up dancing and having a good time. It might not seem that important initially, but trust me when I say music is one of the biggest things that people remember about your function.
