Are you waltzing, two-stepping or doing the langarm? Perhaps you’ve just decided to wing it and do whatever feels right in the moment. Or are you going to forego the First Dance entirely and just let everyone and anyone onto the floor.

Whatever your decision, we’ve made life a little easier with a few timeless suggestions followed by a list of unusual numbers that just might put you in the mood or help you change your mind about giving this particular tradition the cold shoulder.

Classic pieces you can’t resist:
