Being a woman married to a man I never realized just how easy we had it. I didn’t realize how gender specific the wedding industry was until I started planning weddings for the modern union. Everything is focused on a man and a woman, including the songs that are most popular for the first dance. When I realized how non-inclusive the industry that I love was I vowed to speak up. I have been planning weddings, blissfully unaware, for quite sometime. Well folks, it’s time to celebrate the modern union starting with the first dance.
I got in touch with DJ Eric from Babes, AKA Sharon Husbands. DJ Eric not only DJs one of the hottest dance parties at Babes, but he also does weddings with Austin Prime, from Austin Prime Productions. Austin is on Air at Q94, and DJ Eric was voted Richmond’s #1 DJ and Drag Queen by Style Weekly several years in a row. With a duo like this, I think it is safe to say these songs will be perfect for your first dance as a married couple.
