Okay everyone, have you chosen your first dance song yet?
I’m no bridezilla but the one thing I’m going to be anal about is the music played at our wedding, so I had thoughts about my first dance well before I’d ever even had a serious boyfriend. I’m a lover of oldies, folk tunes from the late 60’s and early 70’s, and cheesy love songs from that decade and the 80’s (think Foreigner, or Electric Light Orchestra’s “Strange Magic”) Wedding standard songs will have no place at our reception!
However, fiance and I do not have a song. The closest we could agree on was “Paradise” by Coldplay. Even so, there’s not a huge connection associated with the song.
We were at the Matchbox Twenty concert a few nights ago and they performed this folk like song from their latest album. I started crying and asked my fiance if we could make it our first dance.
We want the first dance to morph into a fast song, preferably “Smooth” by Santana and Rob Thomas – a song we BOTH have a huge connection to, and that would be absolutely perfect if it follows Matchbox Twenty since it’s the same singer 🙂

@childofthe1980s: I want my first dance song to be “Everything I do” by Bryan Adams – it was #1 the week I was born 😉

Right now we’re thinking “Smile” by Uncle Kracker but we haven’t completely decided yet. My FI made me a slideshow of our relationship on one of our anniversaries to that song so it’s special to us. We also wanted something upbeat and easy to dance to.

There are a lot of songs that my FI loves and I hate, and some I love and he hates, so we knew we had to make a compromise. Right now, we are deciding between “Then” by Brad Paisley and “Whatever It Is” by Zac Brown Band.

We are either doing “You and Me” by Dave Matthews Band or “Everything” by Michael Buble. We have yet to decide but FI isn’t a fan of Michael Buble so I have a feeling that one will not win out!

Ours is going to be the acoustic version of Everlong by the Foo Fighters. It’s his favorite song ever. 🙂

We’ll be dancing to “Making Memories of Us” by Keith Urban. FI is not big into country, but the song makes him think of me, and I love that. <3 After he told me that, it just sort of became our song.
