In the midst of planning the intricacies of a wedding, one must consider the minutiae of which song will accompany the hotly anticipated, precious moment when you and your partner waltz across the dance floor for the first time as a newly-married couple.  

If Pinterest has become the digital mood-board for the modern day bride-to-be, Spotify is just in claiming the title of go-to mixtape generator, with the streaming service recently revealing the current top first dance song for Irish Weddings. Will you venture on the cheesy side for proceedings, or tug at the heartstrings of your guests with a classic love song?
