Choose your songs last. Make your song lists and then look through your lists and often you will realize there's a good song already in your lists. Again, remember you only need a couple of minutes of the song and it is easy to fade out.
First, how long you want to dance for? Many couples will select a 5 minute song and after a couple of minutes on the dance floor by themselves it gets awkward. Unless you have a dance routine planned for the entire song, you should look for a shorter song or plan on fading out. With Just Press Play’s setup, it is easy to fade out of a song.

Their are many websites available on the internet with song suggestions for your first dances. Wedding Wire and The Knot both have good lists.
Another option is to choose just one or two songs for all three first dances. A First Dance Song and then a song you both dance to with your parents. Now you have shortened your song search down to one or two songs.
