My fiance loves Josh Turner and we’ve decided on, “Never Had A Reason”. My fiance teared up listening to this song recently because he was thinking of me. 🙂

brittanyeide :  Ours was “Stand by Me”, the Florence and the Machine version.

We opted for a medley of one slow, romantic song (an Indian song) and one fast, fun song (“Shut Up and Dance With Me”) to showcase both of our cultures and to change things up. The fast, fun song was nice because we got to invite our bridal party into the last part of the dance!

Just a quick funny story. I had my first dance song picked out for months, I gave it to the dj a few months in advance and requested he mix two songs I loved. Same song but the English version and the Spanish version. We went back and forth with the mix until it was perfect. The morning of the wedding I woke up and I didn’t want the song anymore  (mind you I only slept for about and hour due to excitement). Anyway I call my now husband crying at 4 am and asked him to call the dj and change the song!!! My now husband did it and we changed the song that morning (at4am) and our first dance turned out perfect. I guess sometimes you can plan for it, but things can change. Moral of the story go with whatever makes you happy!

brittanyeide :  we had ‘Can’t take my eyes off of you’ cover by Muse. We aren’t traditional and both like alternative music so picked it because it starts slow then gets loud and fun and it wasn’t so alternative we would horrify our guests ha ha

The Dusty Springfield song is such a cute idea!  I hate almost all new music.  I’m not sure what song we’re going to do yet, but I’m leaning towards “Only You” by The Platters because it’s short and sweet.  I’m also considering “I Only Have Eyes For You” by the Flamingos.  Our real song is “Unchained Melody” by the Righteous Brothers, but I feel like it’s a little on the dramatic side lol.

Ours is for the dancing and the dreaming from how to train your dragon 2. It really fits our relationship well.
