Our song will be “love is just a touch away” by Freddie Jackson. We have a video of us singing the song together when I was 5 and it will play on the projector screen as we dance. May break out a surprise choreographed number but haven’t decided yet.

We tooka dance class to learn proper posture and turns. Our dance was not choreographed but it wasn’t swaying. We had a couple fancy steps and I let him lead, read the step he wanted. We danced to Never Gonna Let You Down by Colbie Calliett. The father daughter dance was Oh, What a Beautiful World

Our first dance song is “I Love You More Today Than Yesterday” by Spiral Staircase. It’s not a slow dance though. We’re not choreographing anything, just going with it. Fiance and I always have fun dancing like crazy at weddings and this will be no exception. 

Our father/daughter dance song is “You Are My Sunshine” by Johnny Cash.

We’re having Somewhere In Neverland (Acoustic) by All Time Low as our first dance. I’m well known for being a keen dancer and everyone expects a routine so we’re toying with a couple of styles at the moment. Yes, we have 18 months to go but it’ll take that long to teach OH (he has two left feet on a good day, bad days I’d say he has 3). 

‘White Wedding’ as the Daddy/Daughter dance (with all other father/daughter pairs joining us) requires little-to-no effort as Dad and I can just do whatever.

We used home by Edward Sharpe and the magnetic zeroes.  We had choreography and only used part of the song.  I love every time I hear it now

In spite of ourselves By john prine- Very non-traditional, but very us.  We are going to do more than “sway” but not sure what yet.  Fiance bought us dance lessons last year for V-day so we know a few moves we may incorporate

Love Song by the Cure for myself and husband

The Way You Look Tonight by Frank Sinatra for father daughter (which I had to pick on the fly I didn’t think we were going to do a F/d dance and then my father asked for it and I picked it off the top of my head

We danced to ‘Best Friend’ by Jason Mraz.

I had never heard it before, but loved it as soon as I heard it. Now we have the lyrics printed and framed (from my MOH) hanging in our hallway. Whenever I’m feeling a tad annoyed with my new hubby (gasp) I read them and remember that day and all the reasons I love him! =) Happy wedding planning!

We’ll be having our first dance to ‘Never tear us apart’ by INXS. We’ll be learning a routine for sure!

Our first dance was a cover of Elton John’s “Your Song” by Janet Devlin. (listen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y0gOuuZ_8zI)

Father/daughter dance was “To Sir With Love.”

Yeah, we just swayed. I’ve never taken dancing lessons, so there was no way I was going to learn enough in a few months to actually look good. Keep it short and sweet and you’ll be fine.

Other songs we considered for the dances: “You’re My Best Friend” by Freddy Mercury, “She’s a Rainbow” and “Wild Horses” by the Stones.

Father/Daughter – “You’ll be in my heart” by Phil Collins

First dance – “You & Me” by Lifehouse (we both grew up in the 90’s and this was def a old favorite of ours back in the day!) 🙂

And we swayed and talked – we didn’t feel the need to put on a show, but just to enjoy the moment.
