I love “Bless the Broken Road” by Rascal Flatts. Everytime I hear it I just want to higher the volume and sign along. But, I haven’t had a broken road. My FI and I started dating when I was 19.
Can I still use this song? I appreciate all opinions.

I love it too. Its good for a “new start” like marriage is, but it does imply that its been messy before that! I wouldn’t use it for a first dance. Definitely play it later on though. My friend who had dated her husband since she was 17 played it, and we all teased her a little bit, but hey – a good song is a good song!

I think the song should represent the both of you. Bless the Broken Road will be our first dance, but it is not just a song I like, but one that holds true to our relationship. When you can relate the song to your relationship it will just make the first dance that much more special.
I think you should pick a first dance song that means something to the both of you, even if it is not traditional.

Agree, the first dance song is more about how the song relates to your relationship vs. a nice beat or a sweet song in general.
Do you & your FI have any songs that you two really relate to?

Go for it. lol.
Our list of choices is very alternative/indie. I’m sure people would be confused by some of them.

That’s what I thought girls. But I just can’t come up with a song. I love country but every song that someone suggests I just think of how it doesn’t relate to us.
The song “Only you could love me this way” by Keith Urban has beautiful lyrics but the tempo is so slow. I guess I’ll keep looking, we have 4 months.

Honestly, I was at a wedding where they used Broken Road and the bride was 18 and the groom was 20. My first thought was “how broken could her road be?” I like to sing along to that song, too, but since we’ve also been together since I was 16 (!), I don’t think it’s been a broken road. It’s been a pretty good road, actually.
I hope you find a song perfect for you!

I am 27 and my road was pretty broken. Had a terrible 6 year relationship with my ex and my FI was like my night in shining armor, so that song is perfect for us. Another song we were thinking of was “Have I Told You Lately” by Rod Stewart! Maybe that will be our last song…
