On the most sacred of days in a blushing bride’s life, she’ll grab the hands of her dapper groom and sway to the music of their very first dance as husband and wife. It’s a scene we’ve witnessed in romantic, Hollywood films and in real life just the same.

But in order to make that once-in-a-lifetime moment as beautiful and perfect as envisioned, the bride (and groom, if allowed) must scour over dozens of meaningful songs to encapsulate the essence of that moment.
