The first dance is one of the most special moments of the night.  It is memorable because you grace the dance floor in front of many family members and friends for the first time as a couple. Some prefer to take the classic route with a nice slow dance, but others like to bring a little fun with choreographed moves to a pop/dance classic or some rock and roll! Here’s just a few of The Replicas Music‘s favorite songs we have done that could be great for your once-in-a-lifetime moment!
