PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – It’s a wedding tradition filled with meaning: the bride and groom take to the floor for their first dance together, as family and friends watch and take photos. Deciding on a song is a big decision for every couple. But, two local wedding planners say there is one song that stands out.
Owner of The Queen of Hearts Wedding Consultants and Eventricity Phyllis Jablonowski says this is one of the key aspects of any wedding.
“We actually are seeing so much more personalization in that first dance — more than ever before.”
She says John Legend’s “All of Me” is very popular. So is Etta James’ “At Last” and “Love me Tender” by Elvis.
Owner of Heaven Sent Wedding Consultants Christina Maddox says John Legend’s tune is the overwhelming choice of her clients this year, “It’s a phenomenal song one of my favorite lines ‘you’re crazy and I’m out of my mind.’ It doesn’t even matter that you are crazy and I’m out of my mind. He says ‘Give your all to me and I’ll give my all to you.’ That’s the epitome of love.”
Maddox agrees brides and grooms want to have all the right moves on the dance floor.
