I’ve been searching for our first dance song for years (yes, YEARS). The few I like, Fiance hates and vice versa. I’ve spent countless hours listening to hundreds (maybe thousands) of songs only to stop them a minute or so in because they’re just not right. I’m starting to think that “our song” doesn’t exist. Anyone else feel like this? If you’re like me and searched forever to find your first dance song, what did you choose? Did anyone just give up and pick the best of the worst since you ran out of time or got sick of searching?

We are going through this too.. Fiance and I have completely different tastes in music and he doesn’t want anything thats over done. We have a song we like for a bit and then change our minds on it which sucks because we are completely running out of time.
The song of the week right now is ‘two in a million – s club’ because Fiance is a closet s club fan.. and I think it would be hillariously cheesy and sweet.

Do you guys not have a song, that you both listened to early on in your relationship, and both connected to? I thought everyone had a “song”. We aren’t doing a wedding, so we don’t have to think about that, but I ‘m pretty sure we could come up with so many. We love country, so ” Nobody but me”-blake shelton, might take the cake. I used to sing to him that song, ALL the time, lol. Anyways, goodluck in your searches!

Hm, maybe you’re asking too much of it? Instead of going for the perfect song what about one that was playing during a special moment, or just reminds you of each other?
We’re going with a Kings of Leon song. Ridiculous, maybe, but us? Yes.

We thought the same thing, until one day I was playing Michael Buble’s Crazy Love. There’s one line in there that says, “And when I’m returning, from so far away. She gives me loving, and brightens up my day.” This really hit home for both of us. By the time we were married, we had seen eachother 8 times over a course of 2 1/2 years and it seemed like our relationship was defined by us being apart. So that one line has HUGE meaning to the both of us. Maybe it will be the same for you. The right song will just come out of no where when you least expect it!

We’re in the same boat. I’m a music nerd, went to music school… and Fiance could really care less. We don’t have any song that ‘means’ anything from our (sorta short) relationship… so what to do?
I have a few contenders based on the feel of the song, but everything I’ve played for him hasn’t gotten much of a response.
So yeah – no help here, just I know what you means 🙂

I was the same way, went through soooooooo many songs looking for something PERFECT. But perfect wasn’t out there.
We ended up going with this song that he sang during kareoke and pulled me up on stage with him (before we were even dating), so at least the song had some significance to us. While looking I found this kinda cheesy song that I liked and me and my husband slow danced to it a couple times trying to figure out if it was too cheesy for our first dance song – it just is a sweet song and the lyrics fits us, but it’s cheesy. We decided it was too cheesy but still had it played as one of our slow songs and for some reason that cheesy song makes me tear up (and him too I think) when I hear it now. So I guess just don’t care what others think, it doesn’t have to be perfect, just try and find something you and your hubby have some connection with.

Our first song ended up being You and Me by Lifehouse, just because we didn’t have ‘a song’ and we were running out of time. I love country music, he doesn’t. So country was out. So I just played a bunch of rock songs I thought he may like and he liked You and Me and I did, too, so that was that. It was NOT an important song to us before the wedding, but now it is!! I listen to it at least a few times a week at work on YouTube and it takes me back to our first dance. 🙂 Good luck picking a song!!

I have heard Lady Antebellum’s song numerous times on the radio, had my little sister sing them to me, and also sing them myself. Not until last night was I in the “wedding mind set” when I listed to Lady A’s “When You got a Good Thing.” I asked my Fi to listen to it (in the wedding mind set of course) and point out the main things that remind him of me. We absolutely love it!!

UGH! Same here …
I’ve listened to a million songs. Everytime I hear a song on the radio, in a movie, on tv I think OMG THAT COULD BE OUR FIRST DANCE SONG….
I just don’t know anymore. Right now I think this might be it

Ugh this was so hard for us. We didn’t decide until like 2 days before our wedding! Songs I loved he felt “meh” about. Songs he loved I felt “meh” about. I wanted something that spoke to us but wasn’t TOO sappy/meaningful (ex.- he wanted “broken road” bc it really fits our situation but it seemed too personal to me). We basically kept just putting it off and my Darling Husband was making our reception play list which included a lot of slow songs we liked… we looked through them and decided our two favs were “I’m yours” by jason mraz and “come away with me” by norah jones. We tried dancing to each and dancing to “come away with me” was a little easier so that was it.
Not a super romantic story bc it wasn’t “our song” before… but it is now!

What a great song, for a first dance song. It’s so amazing, I’m listening to it right now! hehe

Can I join your club? Mr.ND and I have some very different/interesting tastes in music. He’s one of those ‘whatever you like, I like’ sort of FIs, so I’m hoping he’ll at least want a little input on the first dance song.
He things the walking up the aisle/down the aisle songs are ‘mine’ since it’s me walking, haha. So I think I can convince him that our first dance song is ‘ours’ so he gets to help! 🙂 I’m thinking Foo Fighters, or Red Hot Chili Peppers…we just have to make sure it’s ‘dance-able’ and that the lyrics are appropriate for 90% of our guests (can’t please everyone).
