Last Dance Song –Today Was A Fairytale – Taylor Swift

….Today was a fairytale
You were the prince
I used to be a damsel in distress
You took me by the hand, and you picked me up at six
Today was a fairytale
… Today was a fairytale
… Today was a fairytale
I wore a dress
You wore a dark gray t-shirt
You told me I was pretty when I looked like a mess
Today was a fairytale
… Time slows down
Whenever you’re around
… Can you feel this magic in the air?
It must have been the way you kissed me
Fell in love when I saw you standing there
It must have been the way
Today was a fairytale
It must have been the way
Today was a fairytale
… Today was a fairytale
You’ve got a smile
Takes me to another planet
Every move you make everything you say is right
Today was a fairytale
… Today was a fairytale
All that I can say
Is now it’s getting so much clearer
Nothing made sense ’til the time I saw your face
Today was a fairytale
… Time slows down
Whenever you’re around, yeah
… But can you feel this magic in the air?
It must have been the way you kissed me
Fell in love when I saw you standing there
It must have been the way
Today was a fairytale
It must have been the way
Today was a fairytale
… Time slows down
Whenever you’re around
I can feel my heart
It’s beating in my chest
Did you feel it?
I can’t put this down
… But can you feel this magic in the air?
It must have been the way you kissed me
Fell in love when I saw you standing there
It must have been the way
… But can you feel this magic in the air?
It must have been the way you kissed me
Fell in love when I saw you standing there
It must have been the way
Today was a fairytale
It must have been the way
Today was a fairytale
… Oh, oh
Oh, oh, yeah, oh-oh
Today was a fairytale

First Dance Song: Love at First Sight

Didn’t know that I was looking
It took me by surprise
But I never would’ve guessed it
Just what I might find
If I’d known that I was searching
I could’ve been prepared
‘Cause I fell in love at first sight
When I saw you standing there
Oh how you changed my life
Oh how you changed my life
‘Cause I found myself an angel who likes to dress in black
She lead me through the fire to the right side of the tracks
And I won’t forget the showers or the dancing in the rain
‘Cause I fell in love at first sight and I’ll never be the same
‘Cause I fell in love at first sight
‘Cause I fell in love at first sight
But now right here
It’s all become clear
Cold light of day
Is when you showed me the way
Oh how you changed my life
Oh how you changed my life
‘Cause I found myself an angel who likes to dress in black
She lead me through the fire to the right side of the tracks
And I won’t forget the showers or the dancing in the rain
‘Cause I fell in love at first sight and I’ll never be the same
‘Cause I fell in love at first sight
‘Cause I fell in love at first sight
‘Cause I fell in love at first sight
‘Cause I fell in love at first sight
‘Cause I’m so lost in your eyes
You saved my life
And I thank God that I saw you there
‘Cause I found myself an angel who likes to dress in black
She lead me through the fire to the right side of the tracks
And I won’t forget the showers or the dancing in the rain
‘Cause I fell in love at first sight and I’ll never be the same
‘Cause I fell in love at first sight
‘Cause I fell in love at first sight
You see I fell in love at first sight
Ooh I fell in love at first sight
Ooh I fell in love at first sight
Because I fell in love at first sight
You see I fell in love at first sight
You see I fell in love at first sight

How to ensure a full dance floor all night

How to ensure a full dance floor all night?

Our most asked question is always… How can you ensure that our guests have an unforgettable party? And how can you ensure that we will have a packed dance floor all night?

How to ensure a full dance floor all nightphoto by The Roots

Fantastic question… and please allow us to drop some knowledge for a moment that is sure to help any prospective client achieve a night full of dancing.

First thing first, you need to ensure that you have selected a Band or DJ Entertainment team that you mesh well with. This means you need to feel comfortable that they can provide you with the music style that you are anticipating you and your guests to dance to for the evening (yes, you want to make sure of a few other things when shopping for vendors but that’s a different blog post…lol).

Once you feel like you have just the right guy or girl… Here are a few tips and tricks of the trade to ensure a great evening to achieve a high energy dance floor.

How to ensure a full dance floor all nightphoto by Rudy and Marta – How to ensure a full dance floor all night

You want to ensure that the distance between your DJ/Band and the dance floor is as minimal as possible. If you could setup up their gear in the middle of the dance floor and it still be acceptable, I would do it. What this does… is it puts your performer’s energy as close to the crowd as possible. Your guests will automatically vibe off the energy of your DJ/Band just like you would at a concert venue. With this theory in mind, “the closer you are to the stage, the better your experience will be…”, its just one move you can make when trying to achieve a fun dance party.

Next thing, would be to limit the size of the dance floor to the most logical size possible. What in the world does that mean, you ask? If you’re expecting 300 guests at your wedding or event, please understand that you do not necessarily need to have a floor that accommodates that many people.

Think about it this way FIRST, when its time for all 300 people to put on their dancing shoes, not everyone is going to jump out there all at once. You will find people are socializing at their tables, hitting the bar for another cocktail, or lighting a cigar with old friends on the patio. So, lets plan for at least a 250 person dance floor, just to start with so that this way you are ensuring even more probability of having a great dance party.

Consider this SECONDLY, if you’re in a room that has a huge dance floor for 300 people, and at the end of the night you are expecting only 100 of your closest family and friends to hang around and jam with you to the bitter end… Then a smaller dance floor is perfect for you!

Honestly, if I’m choosing, a good rule of thumb is to plan for a dance floor for 150-200 guests for this size of event. I always tell clients at a minimum plan for 2/3rd’s of your guest-list. This way you minimize the dead space on the floor and it encourages that raging dance party you have always dreamed about for your big day.

The LAST thing you want to ensure you do, which will increase your chances of having a night you never want to end… is to make sure you are selecting music that you know your guests want to dance to. Yes! This day is about you and celebrating your love for your fiancé, however you are buying dinner for your friends and family and wanting to show them a good time… So please keep them in mind as well. Numerous times we receive client’s that have exceptional music taste that is completely different from what you would expect to hear at a wedding.

Genre’s that are including Punk, Aggressive Rock, Polka, Etc… Even though there are many tunes in these genre’s that most people can appreciate, the people on your dance floor most likely won’t want to tap their toe’s to it that evening. Make sure to pick a good range of upbeat songs, or tunes that you think all of your friends will know. Not to say that imputing some of your favorite high school jam’s won’t keep the party going. I’m just saying make sure to keep your guests music taste at the forefront as well, to ensure a fun filled evening of dancing.

Giving your DJ the free range to pick what everyone is vibing with will also help with this.  Handcuffing them to a specific ONLY PLAY THESE songs will only make it more difficult to keep the party going.

How to ensure a full dance floor all nightBella Collina Wedding

Once again… to ensure a jam packed dance floor all night, make sure you have an entertainment company that represents your style. Put them as close to the dance floor as humanly possible, using discretion for guests, when planning your layout of the reception space.

Make sure that you can limit the size of dance floor to comfortably hold 2/3rd’s of your expected guest count. Finally, and I think maybe the most obvious, would be to make sure you’re catering to your GUEST’s music taste and not just own.

First Dance Song – Perfect – Ed Sheeran

I found a love for me
Darling, just dive right in
And follow my lead
Well, I found a girl, beautiful and sweet
I never knew you were the someone waiting for me
‘Cause we were just kids when we fell in love
Not knowing what it was
I will not give you up this time
Darling, just kiss me slow, your heart is all I own
And in your eyes, you’re holding mine
Baby, I’m dancing in the dark with you between my arms
Barefoot on the grass, we’re listenin’ to our favorite song
When you said you looked a mess, I whispered underneath my breath
But you heard it, darling, you look perfect tonight
Well, I found a woman, stronger than anyone I know
She shares my dreams, I hope that someday I’ll share her home
I found a love, to carry more than just my secrets
To carry love, to carry children of our own
We are still kids, but we’re so in love
Fightin’ against all odds
I know we’ll be alright this time
Darling, just hold my hand
Be my girl, I’ll be your man
I see my future in your eyes
Baby, I’m dancing in the dark, with you between my arms
Barefoot on the grass, listenin’ to our favorite song
When I saw you in that dress, looking so beautiful
I don’t deserve this, darling, you look perfect tonight
Oh, no, no
Mm
Baby, I’m dancing in the dark, with you between my arms
Barefoot on the grass, we’re listenin’ to our favorite song
I have faith in what I see
Now I know I have met an angel in person
And she looks perfect
No, I don’t deserve this
You look perfect tonight

Best Song to Dance To Under the Fyerfly Lights
Can’ Stop The Feeling
Justin Timberlake

Ah, yeah, ah, yeah
I got this feelin’ inside my bones
It goes electric, wavy when I turn it on
All through my city, all through my home
We’re flyin’ up, no ceilin’, when we in our zone
I got that sunshine in my pocket
Got that good soul in my feet
I feel that hot blood in my body when it drops (ooh)
I can’t take my eyes up off it, movin’ so phenomenally
Room on lock, the way we rock it, so don’t stop
And under the lights when everything goes
Nowhere to hide when I’m gettin’ you close
When we move, well, you already know
So just imagine, just imagine, just imagine
Nothin’ I can see but you when you dance, dance, dance
Feel a good, good creepin’ up on you
So just dance, dance, dance, come on
All those things I shouldn’t do
But you dance, dance, dance
And ain’t nobody leavin’ soon, so keep dancin’
I can’t stop the feelin’
So just dance, dance, dance
I can’t stop the feelin’
So just dance, dance, dance, come on
Ooh, it’s something magical
It’s in the air, it’s in my blood, it’s rushin’ on (rushin’ on)
I don’t need no reason, don’t need control (need control)
I fly so high, no ceiling, when I’m in my zone
‘Cause I got that sunshine in my pocket
Got that good soul in my feet
I feel that hot blood in my body when it drops (ooh)
I can’t take my eyes up off it, moving so phenomenally
Room on lock, the way we rock it, so don’t stop (stop, stop, stop)
Under the lights when everything goes
Nowhere to hide when I’m gettin’ you close
When we move, well, you already know
So just imagine, just imagine, just imagine
Nothing I can see but you when you dance, dance, dance
Feel a good, good, creepin’ up on you
So just dance, dance, dance, come on
All those things I shouldn’t do
But you dance, dance, dance
And ain’t nobody leavin’ soon, so keep dancin’
I can’t stop the feelin’
So just dance, dance, dance
I can’t stop the feelin’
So just dance, dance, dance
I can’t stop the feelin’
So just dance, dance, dance
I can’t stop the feelin’ (yeah)
So keep dancin’, come on
Oh, yeah, yeah
I can’t stop the, I can’t stop the
I can’t stop the, I can’t stop the
I can’t stop the feelin’
Nothin’ I can see but you when you dance, dance, dance (I can’t stop the feelin’)
Feel the good, good, creepin’ up on you
So just dance, dance, dance, come on (I can’t stop the feelin’)
All those things I shouldn’t do
But you dance, dance, dance (dance, dance, dance) (I can’t stop the feelin’)
And ain’t nobody leavin’ soon, so keep dancin’
Everybody sing (I can’t stop the feelin’)
Got this feeling in my body (I can’t stop the feelin’)
Got this feeling in my body (I can’t stop the feelin’)
Wanna see you move your body (I can’t stop the feelin’)
Got this feelin’ in my body
Break it down
Got this feelin’ in my body (ah)
Can’t stop the feelin’
Got this feelin’ in my body, come on (ooh)
