  1. Creates a romantic atmosphere: There's something magical about having your first dance under the stars or surrounded by nature. It can create a romantic and intimate atmosphere that you and your guests will always remember.

  3. Enhanced emotional impact: Live music has the power to evoke emotions and create a powerful experience. Having your first dance played live can intensify the emotional impact of the moment and make it feel even more special.

  4. Greater flexibility: When you have a live band playing your first dance, you have the flexibility to change the tempo, length, or even switch to a different song if you want to. This can give you more freedom to create a moment that truly reflects you and your partner's personalities and preferences.

  5. Memorable for guests: Your first dance is often one of the most memorable moments of your wedding day, not just for you, but also for your guests. Having a live band playing the song can make it even more memorable for everyone who is there to celebrate with you.

In summary, having a first dance outside played live by a band or musician can add an extra special touch to your wedding day, creating a romantic atmosphere, providing a personalized experience, enhancing the emotional impact of the moment, giving you greater flexibility, and making the experience more memorable for your guests.
