It's such a good question - our first dance is an opportunity to really put our own personality into the celebrations. From choreographed flashmobs, to 'that lift' from Dirty Dancing - there's a lot of options!
My main piece of advice is to think about how you want the dance element of the song to play out. Do you want to do a choreographed slow dance, or would you rather all your friends and family joined you on the floor after a few seconds of something improvised?
Once you've gauged your level of choreogrpahy, you can start to look at the vibe and energy of the song - something slow and romantic, or something fast and fun.
Here's an amazing list from Harper's Bazaar to get you started: https://www.harpersbazaar.com/wedding/planning/a15586/first-dance-wedding-songs/
