First Dance Strikes Major Chord With Brides

REDDING, Conn. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The first dance strikes a major chord with brides, and friendships could be lost over it.

According to a survey by entertainment booking service gigmasters.com, 25 percent of brides say they’d be upset if their best friend chose the same wedding song for their first dance.

Couples are serious when it comes to their first dance as husband and wife – almost 60 percent say they knew what their special song would be even before getting engaged.

About 5 percent welcomed recommendations for their song from friends and family, 10 percent looked online for ideas, and 18 percent found their tune randomly.

Besides the first dance, wedding entertainment is a top priority.

Turns out 30 percent of couples find entertainment very important to their wedding, spending $825 on average for it.

Though 42 percent book only one act for their big day, nearly 40 percent book two, 10 percent book three, and 6 percent book four.

About 33 percent hired a soloist, 38 percent used a DJ, 26 percent went with a live band, and 3 percent opted for impersonators.
