Wedding season is upon us. So what are New England newlyweds choosing for their first dance songs these days?
Actually, is wedding season upon us? I don’t know, actually. When I got married a lifetime ago, we had a December wedding. I know that’s a bit of an unorthodox choice, but it worked for us. We had Christmas trees and garland and lots and lots of lights. And it snowed just days before the wedding ceremony, so we were blessed with a blanket of white as a backdrop for our photo ops outside of the wedding venue.
But I digress. I’m assuming that summertime is still widely accepted as “wedding season” in New England. It is, after all, a couple’s best shot at having an outdoor wedding ceremony and reception where the weather cooperates. Set your date in autumn and you’re rolling the dice. Ditto on an early spring wedding. So yeah, we’ll say that, as I type this in mid-August, we’re still in the middle of wedding season.
First Dance Songs: Here are New England’s Top Tunes
Of all the choices a couple has to make when planning nuptials (and there are hundreds, to be sure), choosing that first dance song is a pretty important one. It gives the newlyweds an opportunity to really make a lasting impression on the friends and family in attendance. Recently, The Shane Co. looked into these choices with The Most Popular First Dance Song in Every State.
As usual, you’re welcome to tap that link and see what fiances in all fifty states are cutting a rug to. And as usual, my interest lies in New England. Below, I’ve pulled the most popular first dance songs in each of our six states. And I’ve added a bit of commentary, too. No judgement, mind you. Just snark.
