My fiance picked our first dance song. He says it’s his song for me. It’s a beautiful song but I’m not sure it’s fitting for a wedding dance. It’s “Belief” by Gavin Degraw. What do you guys think? (You can youtube it.) Please give me opinions.
If your fiance picked your first dance song, what is it and do you like it??

Hah! If I let him pick it’d prob be “Jump Around”. LOL
All joking aside – FI’s super into music & he did kinda pick it. We’re either going with “When the Stars Go Blue” by the Coors or “To Make You Feel my Love” (the Adele version) – he picked both songs.
Edit: Whoops, I didn’t address your Q. I don’t think there’s really any right or wrong 1st dance – I think if the song means a great deal to you guys… go for it!

It totally would have been Eye of the Tiger.
I let him have it as our intro song, instead. Sigh, compromises.

he chose our first dance song: “let’s fall in love” by Frank Sinatra.
It’s the song that played when he proposed, he chose it a looooong time ago.

He chose ours: Try by Blue Rodeo (an acoustic version – it is way better than either album or radio versions)

We picked ours together and both loved it “Harvest Moon” by Neil Young

My FI wanted to pick “It’s the only one you’ve got” by Three Doors Down. It’s the song that helped him make the leap of faith to start dating me instead of hiding behing my life is fine being a single guy.
Anyway, I love the song but I didn’t want it to be the song we started our lives out with because it is a pretty depressing song. and we ultimately decided on Im Your’s by Jason Mraz. As this was the song playing after he proposed and it so represents our playful and fun personalities
I’ll tell you though — part of me thinks I should just let him have his song as he let’s me have whatever I want and I think the song means A LOT to him.
All that to say……I think I know how you feel.

Oops, one more comment. Belief by gavin is a beautiful song. I agree with Dancy905, there is no right or wrong….just do what you want!

Bless the Broken Road, Rascal Flatts. He picked it before we got engaged. he said it was his song to me and the first time i heard it he put it in my car cd player so as soon as i started my car it was ready.
It has to be our song and luckily it will work for a first dance song.

Yes, my husband chose our song: The Way I Am by Ingrid Michaelson.
It was/is PERFECT for us – and for a first dance. Sweet and sentimental, while also whimsical and light spirited. It is also short and sweet (as we didn’t want to spend an eternity with peeps watching us dance).
If you don’t think your Fi’s song is perfect, I would just tell him and work it out. It is a small, fun detail and nothing more.

Thank you Jamie (Penmanwedding)! Belief is a beautiful song indeed, especially because of it’s lyrics. Also, you’ve inspired me to just let my fiance have his song choice, since he lets me have a lot of the things I want.
And thank you MrsK2be – It is true what you said, it’s just a small fun detail and nothing more.

He would probably go with “My girl,” everytime he hears it he says he thinks of me 🙂

I wouldn’t dare let him pick it…it would probably be either a Kanye West (whom I can not stand) or Drake song.

… Mr. KM would choose, if I let him, “How Deep is Your Love” but the Bee Gees. I wish, wish, wish I was kidding. But I’m not.
“Cause we’re living in a world of fools…”

omg…if my FI had a choice, it would be something from the band Everytime Time I Die…for those of you who don’t know what this is, just think of extremely energized metal dropping lots of F-bombs.
oh, he’s a silly cat.
