One of my close friends is getting married a few weeks before me (this is actually her second wedding to this man as they had a small wedding the year before.) I have always wanted this specific song for a first dance wedding song and when my fiance said the same song, I was so thrilled! The song does have some significance to us. My heart sank when my friend told me she was going to do the same song, and then said that her fiance/husband doesn’t even know the song! Her wedding is first and just three weeks before, we will have some of the same people there so should I just bag the idea of using it?

I think you can dance to whatever you want! It’s not like you went to her wedding, THEN heard her song, and decided to use it – you had planned to all along, I think it’s fine 🙂

I would still use it. It can still be your song too.

I’d talk to her. Lots of people have the same song. it just happens that your weddings are close together so it is noticeable. Talk to your friend to give her a heads up. If she’s a good friend and knows its meaningful, she should be happy to be “song-twins”.

I don’t think you should use – she might not like it, unless she is not coming to yours.

I would still use it. I mean, are you not going to wear a white dress because she is? are you not going to have the bouquet toss because she is? are you not going to have a veil because she is? I know these are much broader things, but it’s impossible that all weddings are completely 100% different. there are probably thousands of first dances with the song you want. It’s just a coincidence that you and your friend picked the same one.
I would talk to her about it and tell her how that song has meaning for you. Maybe she doesn’t have her heart set on it and will change it if it bothers her.
