Picking That Special Wedding Song

I do not know about you but I know that I am bored stiff with the songs selection brides choose these days, especially for the couple's first dance.

Couple's first dance songs should be songs that mean something to both parties. From the lyrics to the rhythm to the singer. It shouldn't be chosen based on the fact that it is the trending song at the moment. 

Brides to be, this is not a song you choose on your own. Make out time with your fiancé to select songs that you both love and can relate to. You can listen to a couple of songs before making a choice. 

And please there are other songs apart from John Legend's " All of me" and Ed Sheeran's " thinking out loud". Don't get me wrong, they are both beautiful songs but there are other songs and most brides don't even know the lyrics to these songs.
