Just Out

Choosing a new Arabic release for the first dance makes a statement. It says you are musically updated and that you are not afraid to take a risk. Some brides and grooms shy away from new songs in fear that the guests will not be able to relate. You should think, however, of how the guests would feel when a catchy soft tune flutters by their ears getting their attention, instead of having to see you dance to the same song they have heard once and again in other weddings. Also, because you are probably the first couple they see to dance to that song, it will be known as ‘the song from your wedding’.
