Imagine being at a wedding and watching the bride and groom take to the floor only to have something cringeworthy blast out of the speaker... Nobody wants to be that couple with a first song everyone wants to forget. So to make sure you're clued up with what amazing music is out there to make your first dance an absolute hit, we looked into your options...

There's a lot to think about when you're planning a wedding, and it's really easy for certain things to overshadow others. However we think the fact that all of your guests will be waiting to watch you dance, in front of them, as a newly-wed vision of love, should be pretty high on that priority list. That first dance song has got to be perfect.

Some couples have taken to organising a mass group dance for the first dance to take away the pressure of doing a 'slowie' in public. (YouTube, oh how we love you). Other couples tend to really go for it with their first dance - even going as far as classes, but don't worry, you don't technically need to be any good at dancing at all. An obligatory stand and sway will do as long as your song choice can carry the rest of the weight.

So with that in mind we spoke to some of the world's coolest DJs, The Wedding Smashers, to get their top 10 first dance wedding songs for 2013. Whether you want to stick to something a little more traditional or fancy a more modern song choice, these DJs know what they're talking about...
