First Dance Trend

First Dance Trend

Michelle Obama is officially our new bridal icon. Her and husband Barack's gorgeous inauguration 'first dance' was pure romance and the couple danced like there was no one else is in the room (apart from 1billion people and a host of superstar celebs of course). They swayed to Etta James' At Last, performed by Beyoncé Knowles, with Michelle looking completely stunning in a white, floor-length chiffon gown by Jason Wu (www.jasonwustudio.com). It took us right back to our own first wedding dances, and here's what the Brides team spun round the dancefloor to:
 
Deborah Joseph, editor: 'The Wonder of You', Elvis Presley
Astrid Joss, style editor: 'Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now' by Starship
Alice du Parcq, beauty editor: 'How Sweet it is To Be Loved by You' by James Taylor
Bryony Toogood, fashion editor: 'True Love' by Bing Crosby and Grace Kelly

  • My best first dance song would have to be the one my husband wrote for me, it was played on acoustic guitar and sung by my best friend (luckily an amazing singer!) just after we said our vows whilst we were still standing at the alter. It was a complete and overwhelming surprise. Of course it is one of my all time favorite songs and still gives me goosebumps when I hear it.... 30yrs later! Love can last!

  • We're using "Easy Living" by Billie Holiday at our wedding (which is in about a year). :)

  • Having performed at many smart weddings (if I told you whose we'd never work again...) we can officially announce that the most popular jazz song is "It Had to Be You".

  • We had 'That Old Black Magic', and some of the lyrics are on our wedding rings. But working at weddings my top two: a cheeky charleston at a civil partnership to 'King of the Swingers', and my favourite ever: the bride sang 'I am what I am', which segued into the couple doing a joyous tap routine for their guests.
