A wedding first dance comes from an age-old royal tradition. The guest of honor, usually a person of royalty or high society, would commence a royal ball with the first dance. Nowadays, the first dance is a coveted, special moment for any wedding, and the song a couple chooses is important in representing their relationship and love for each other.
