- Wedding: May 2009
When my Fiance proposed, he didn’t have a ring, but he gave me car instead. That’s right a car! (we later picked out a ring together, but it’s a very modest ring, because hey he already bought me a car which I needed much more anyway.) He also made me a mixed CD to listen to in the car, and one of the first songs on the CD was this:
So, what do you think? Should it be our first dance song?
There’s a problem I’m having with the first dance thing though. My Fiance is terribly shy and horrified by the idea of the first dance, because everyone will be watching us. He never dances, and he hates anything, where people are watching him. I’ve tried talking to him about it, but he hates even thinking about it and it makes him horrible grumpy every time I bring it up, and he doesn’t want to talk about it. He says he will do it because he feels like we have to have a first dance, and because I want him to, but I hate the idea of forcing him to do something he’s terrified about. I feel like there needs to be some kind of first dance at a wedding to kick off the dancing, but I’m racking my brain trying to think of ways to make it less terrifying for him. The only idea I’ve thought of is possible asking ALL the married couples to come to the dance floor for the first dance, and that way we wouldn’t be alone, and he would feel less like everyone was watching us. I don’t know if it’s possible to skip the first dance all together – has anyone ever done that?
So,is anyone else in a similar situation?
Does anyone have any ideas or advice?
