First dance ideas from our Bristol couples!

First dance ideas Bristol
Thank you to How Photography for suppling our feature image!

You lot know how to get the party started! Here are our favourite trends and songs that our couples in Bristol and Somerset have been choosing for their first dance this year.

Acoustic mashups

More and more of our Bristol couples are looking for alternative versions of songs, and a popular trend at the moment is to take an acoustic version of a song and mix the original version into it to pick up the beat.

Just some of the acoustic versions we’ve been asked to mix up include Guns N’ Roses’ Sweet Child O Mine by Jessica Thompson and Toploader’s Dancing In The Moonlight by Jebel – check out the acoustic versions below to get you started!

Dancing lessons

We’ve noticed that quite a few of our couples have been taking first dance lessons this wedding season – this is definitely becoming more popular!

Check out one of our couples absolutely smashing it to I Like It Like That at Rockbeare Manor along with our dry ice effect!

And another one of our couples killing it with Romeo Santos’ Promise at The Manor Country House Hotel, also accompanied by our dry ice!

One lady that we recommend to learn your first dance choreography from is Steph Kelsall from Kelsall Choreo – she is fab!!!!

Finally, we’ve rounded up 15 of our favourite first dance songs as chosen by our Bristol couples this summer to give you some inspiration – some even have first dance videos to go with them!

Bonus points if you spot these couples’ dry ice, giant light-up letters and LED dance floors – all of which we provide in addition to our wedding DJ services, along with confetti and pyrotechnics, we have all the perfect first dance extras you could wish for!

That’s it! We hope we’ve given you lots of inspiration for your own first dance. Lots of couples are overlooking their first dance as a married couple because they’re worried that people will judge them on their first dance selection, but we always say it doesn’t matter what song you choose as long as it means something to you both!
