My FI & I are starting to look at first dance songs & so far, he hasn’t liked any of the songs I’ve picked! So far, I’ve suggested:
-At Last by Etta James
-I Knew I Loved You by Savage Garden
-The Way You Look Tonight by Frank Sinatra
-Can’t Help Falling in Love With You by Elvis
-I’ve Got the World on a String – Michael Buble
I just found All of Me by John Legend and I absolutely love it, but just in case he turns that one down as well, I want back ups. What will be/was your first dance with your SO? We don’t want country and it doesn’t necessarily have to be really slow…
Those songs all seem generic. Isn’t there a song that has been meaningful during your relationship ? Try to think of songs that you both love that would work…doesn’t necessarily have to be “wedding”-y.
@whoa_its_ash: Not really, that would make things SO much easier. We both like different types of music (I prefer alternative & top 40 stuff, like Of Monsters & Men, Mumford & Sons, & Maroon 5) and he more or less exclusively listens to rock (The Offspring, Yellowcard, Blink 182). Let’s put it this way, when I call his cell phone, Somebody Told Me by the Killers plays. (“Somebody told me that you have a boyfriend that looks like a girlfriend I had in February of last year…”)
@excitedtobeMRSF: That’s such a sweet song, I’ll send him that one too to see what he thinks. Thanks for the suggestion!
Hi bees, I just wanted to follow up and let you all know that we did finally pick our wedding song! We heard the new Goo Goo Dolls song, “Come To Me” on the radio and we instantly loved it! Thanks for all the suggestions 🙂
