I’m still in the early stages of planning, but I’ve been thinking about this a lot. I think we’ll do Ingrid Michaelson’s "The Way I Am" because I used to listen to it all the time before I’d go meet my guy for our dinner dates. Do you already know your first dance song?

We’d like to do the Gipsy Kings version of Volare, but I don’t feel like it would work unless we did some amazing choreography… and neither of us has the time!!!

I think we’re doing Louis Armstrong’s version of "La Vie en Rose."
I really wanted to do Buddy Holly’s "Now We’re One," but it may be hard to dance to in front of a large group of people!

@Ferris Wheel- We decided to make that our final song of the night, I think it’ll be a nice end. I tried to convince FI to make it our first dance song, but….
He completely insisted on Frank Sinatra’s "Call Me Irresponsible". He LOVES FS, and I just couldn’t tell him no. 🙂

The first dance song we picked is called "If I had my way (I would be with you now)" by Lisa Bastoni. It’s about being in a LDR, and it quickly became "our song" when we started dating. Unbeknownst to fizicsGuy, his wedding present is a different version of this song. Lisa is the awesomest, most talented ever, and she wrote and recorded "Now I’ve found my way (and I’m here with you now)" just for us! I think this might be the part of the wedding I’m most excited about…apart from, you know, getting married 🙂
Here’s the original:
BTW, if anyone is still looking for a song, her "Can’t Look Away" is beautiful. I’m thinking of having it be the last dance.
I think you can download the MP3 here:

Wonderful Tonight by Eric Clapton. I know it’s probably overused but it’s actually our song so I wouldn’t have it any other way!

We danced to Somersault by Zero 7. We had the most amazing concert experience with them early in our relationship — they’re the best! And we named one of our cats after Sia Furler, the vocalist who sings this track, so it just seemed right.
