There are many times during your wedding day when all eyes truly will be on your and your fiancé. One of those moments is the first dance. It's a special time, as you and your new spouse sway back and forth on the dance floor, as the soundtrack of your relationship plays.

However, as a wedding planner, I have seen that this important moment can often be filled with stress to pick the perfect song.

You may begin by asking the following questions:

How fast should the tempo be?

Should you go with a classic?

What about a new hit?

What message should it send?

What should it actually say?

But for same-sex couples, this task can be especially difficult. Once you stop and actually listen to the lyrics- many songs simply don't make the cut.

There seem to be endless options about the traditional girl-meets-boy romance but very few LGBTQ-friendly love songs.

So, let us ease some of your burden and give you some starting ideas!!
