@Pikachu42: I think people might say this one is cliche in the AA community, but my FI and I didn’t want something contemporary. This is one old and young can relate to (plus we are both old souls). Al Green ‘Let’s Stay Together’ or Chaka Kahn’s ‘Sweet Thing.’  But if I did do contemporary, I would pick ‘Golden’ by Chrisette Michele. Love that song.

@Tally7:Love is You is perfect!! My bridal party walked out to that song!

 

We got married in Jamaica so we went with Erykah Badu and Stephen Marley “In Love With You” as our 1st dance song.

Listen to the words of “Lady” by Kenny Rogers.  I originally had another song in mind but my husband said this song’s words described how he felt to a T so when I heard it I cried (and I STILL do every time I hear it!) so it ended up as our First dance song =)

Our first dance was to “So Amazing.”  I think Luther Vandross originally sang it but we danced to the Beyonce and Stevie Wonder version.

Our “first dance” song is In my hands by Jaheim. He says the song reminds him of me. We danced to it this past summer and he sang it to me while we were dancing  ( he isnt the best singer) lol but i loved it, made me cry. Good luck

  1. Robin Thicke- Angel
  2. Javier: In Your Hands
  3. Charlie Wilson: You Are
  4. Eric Benet/Tamia: Spend My Life With You

Our first dance song is Kem Share My Life. And we will have a “couples” song later with is O’Jays Forever Mine. This is one of our favorites as well as our parents.

FYI…
Bridesmaids will walk in to Luther Vandross If This World Was Mine
I will walk out to Jamie Foxx “When I First Saw You”

Our song is Musiq Soulchild “So Beautiful” but we also considered Chrisette Michele “Golden” and Nat King Cole & Natalie Cole “When I Fall In Love.”

SADE- By your side  however we are going to do somethng totally unlike us both, we plan on taking tango lessons so we wont dance to the entire song. Me and DH can get down but Tango will be a challenge and I know no one will expect it

I too am having a hard time choosing a first dance song.  

I believe I have it narrowed down to three songs. 

Whitney Houston – I Believe In You And Me

Anita Baker – I love you just because

THE O’JAYSFOREVER MINE

We will be announced to: Ryan Leslie Diamond Girl (trying to be a little different)
