Hi there! We’re 23 days away from our wedding and we have yet to choose a first dance song! We’ve got a few ideas, but none of them are “it” and I was hoping I could get some help from you guys…
Here’s the contenders:
Umbrella (acoustic) – Plain White T’s
Your Guardian Angel – Red Jumpsuit Apparatus
Far Away – Nickelback
Life After You – Daughtry
The first is kinda slow to dance to, the second has a climax that includes lots of guitar, the third one doesn’t apply (the far away part) and the fourth is sort of a break up song.
We like top 40s from the radio, but more pop/rock. Some of the best songs are break up or love lost songs so it’s hard. Trying to stay away from the Savage Gardens and Micheal Buble J
Any help is appreciated! Thank you!

I am surprised your DJ is not helping you with some suggestion.
Depending on your personal situation, style and the theme of your wedding reception, if any, one of these might fit. I’m sure I don’t have to remind you to listen to the lyrics to make sure they are appropriate for you.
Michelle Featherstone – We are Man and Wife
Diana Krall – ‘S Wonderful
Ben Harper – Gold To Me
Colbie Caillat – Bubbly
Corrinne Baley Rae – Put Your Records On
Ray Charles – Crazy Love (Van Morrison)
Lifehouse – You And Me
Ben Harper – By My Side
Ben Harper – Steal My Kisses
Dr. John & Rickie Lee Jones – Makin’ Whoopie
Frank Sinatra – Fly Me To The Moon
Ella Fitzgerald – The Man I Love
Tim and Ryan O’Neill – The Way you Look Tonight
Cat Power – The Greatest

This is just my opinion, but I really don’t think the last two are really appropriate for a first dance and the Umbrella acoustic just sounds kinda weird. SORRY :/ Out of all of them I guess the Guardian Angel one is okay. I like the song just not sure for a first dance ya know?
What about a song from Lifehouse? I like some of @Celestial Event’s suggestions.

Are there other Lifehouse songs besides “You and Me”? I like Lifehouse and The Fray. I’ve listened to “Look After You” but my FI doesn’t really connect to it.
Thanks for the suggestions!

I love your guardian angel… I wanted that one but my husband thought it was too “weird and slow”. So yeah, that one gets my vote 100% because I think it’s one of the most beautiful songs ever.

Right now FI’s #1 pick is I Believe in a Thing Called Love by the Darkness, so how’s that for unique? 😛 I’m partial to Van Morrison so #2 is Moondance

We’ve been trying to agree on a first dance song since we got engaged in June. Who would have thought this would be so difficult!? Anywho, we’re both really liking “Make You Feel My Love” by Adele.

Sign up for Pandora ASAP and put in your favorite artist. They’ll play songs similar to that artist, and maybe you’ll run across a great love song you haven’t heard before. I did that, and I found ours after about a month (hopefully you’ll find one quicker!).

We’re planning on our first dance song being “I wanna grow old with you” by Adam Sandler from “The Wedding Singer”. We’re goofy, so it’s perfect for us.
