Every couple wants to be able to remember their wedding day as the "time of their life," so it's no surprise that many have paid tribute to Dirty Dancing by using their first dance to pay tribute to the 1987 classic's iconic number set to the Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes tune.

What's the best first dance or surprise dance you've ever seen at a wedding?
