Song Choices can be catchy, fun or romantic – remember to choose what feels comfortable because it will easily come across in your movements. The more you enjoy the song, the easier it will be for you and your partner to enjoy it. If you have a song that instantly comes to mind and describes you both as a couple–use it! But otherwise here are a few of the more popular songs of the year if you’re still searching. Get ready to hear Taylor Swift ‘Sweet Nothing’ and Harry Styles ‘Love of My Life’ also “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran, “Until I Found You” by Stephen Sanchez and “You” by Dan + Shay are just a few but check out Bands for Hire where they give a detailed list of 2023 trending tunes.

Another trend alert—nostalgia, says “Though the focus will be placed on new and emerging songs, couples will continue to honor past classics and play pieces that they deem as sentimental. Nostalgia remains a key trend, with the re-discovery of 80s and 90s music at the forefront on Spotify.” shares Kraines of ‘Kiss Me’ by Sixpence, ‘None The Richer’ and ‘Fade Into You’ by Mazzy Star are great examples of love songs that have found a brand new audience in 2023, and will delight the married couple as well as their parents.”

Choreographed dances are still popular – they add an air of mystery and excitement to the evening that gets everyone putting on their dancing shoes! If this is your route, be sure to give yourself enough time to find a choreographer and learn the dance – you always want to feel confident and comfortable. The less you have to think about your movements the more you can just focus on the fun!
