@Baybeejulia:  I totally recommend that you use the website/app called Songza and go through their curated playlists.  Specifically, the playlist called ‘Lush and Plush’ has a lot of beautiful old songs from the 1940s to the 1960s, and I’m sure you can find one on there you’d like!

ETA: You can look for songlists categorized by decades too, and moods…

We are thinking Sheriff – When I’m with You. It’s VERY 80’s but we both really liked the lyrics and surprisingly my country music only fiance actually suggested it be the first dance song!

Check it out, you may also like it.

@Baybeejulia:  our 1st dance song was Lior “ths old love”. He is a fantastic Australian singer & songwriter. The song was released in 2006 however, due to the folk and country influences, it sounds timeless to us.

Here is a link

Another one I LOVE is Brook Fraser “arithmetic”, yes she is another Australian. The lyrics are so heartfelt and her voice is so heavenly.

Our first dance was ‘You and I’ by Micheal Buble…a beautiful remake of a classic song.

At The Beginning by Donna Lewis and Richard Marx is from Anastasia (the animated movie by Fox) and is similar to My Heart Will Go On in style. The lyrics are great in my opinion.

We were strangers, starting out on a journey
Never dreaming, what we’d have to go through
Now here we are, I’m suddenly standing
At the beginning with you

No one told me I was going to find you
Unexpected, what you did to my heart
When I lost hope, you were there to remind me
This is the start

And life is a road that I wanna keep going
Love is a river, I wanna keep flowing
Life is a road, now and forever, wonderful journey
I’ll be there when the world stops turning
I’ll be there when the storm is through
In the end I wanna be standing
At the beginning with you

We were strangers, on a crazy adventure
Never dreaming, how our dreams would come true
Now here we stand, unafraid of the future
At the beginning with you


Knew there was somebody, somewhere
A new love in the dark
Now I know my dream will live on
I’ve been waiting so long
Nothing’s gonna tear us apart


In the end I want to be standing
At the beginning with you…
