Did you and your beloved meet in drama class or theater camp? Do you just have a shared love of musicals? Or maybe your future spouse has given you free reign on picking the song for your first dance and you just can’t get enough of show tunes. If any of these scenarios are true for you, then picking a Broadway number for your opening dance as newlyweds may be the right choice for you.
There are plenty of marvelous love songs from both classic and obscure musical theater shows, which means there’s sure to be one that fits you and your beloved. Choosing a tune associated with a production provides further opportunity for sentimentality. If the timing is right, you may be able to see a revival, touring company, or even a small community theater company perform the musical that features your song. What a wonderful way to remind you of your wedding day!
