Music plays such a huge role in weddings — from walking down the aisle to the first dance. Those chords and crooning lyrics set the tone as a bride dances with her father or a groom with his mother in front of all their friends and family. We took a look at all the real weddings in Arkansas Bride during 2018 to see what couples are dancing along to in Arkansas.
