My fiance and I met over 15 years ago in an informal online RPG chatroom. We were teenagers role playing as our favourite video game characters from the Final Fantasy series.
So now we’re getting married and I figure it’ll be nice if our first dance song was a video game song. I don’t want anything obvious though (no Super Mario or anything like that). A nice slow song that’s a good reference for gamers, but nothing more than a nice song to non-gamers.
I don’t know how many people here actually play video games, but if you do, would you have recommendations? I prefer it to be a Final Fantasy song, but I’m pretty open.
I also have a few possibilities in mind. Whether you are a gamer or not, I would love to get an opinion on these possibilities. Do they work as first dance songs? Neither of us are really dancers so there’s going to be a lot of hugging and penguin waddling clumsly disguised as slow dancing.
OMG !! this is so cool!!! I am walking down the aisle to ” To zanarkand” ,
I used to play diablo 3 and use to be a fan of my husband , he was a streamer on twitch then we met playing FInal fantasy 14 arr in game. He was my tank in my raid group XD that is why I am playing FF song. FF song is the best go with it ! to zanarkand is my fav !
Did you know that FF14 acutally has ingame weddings ? we did it and took bunch of screen shots and I am using this one for my wedding invitations. We are also having a moogle and a chocoboo on top of our wedding cake.
I play games lol I was a hardcore gamer for a while… but now i just play blade and soul, diablo 3 and gw2 with hubby
Haha, I used to be a pretty hardcore gamer too~ Then life got busy. 🙁 Sadness.
Making a cake topper is on my list of things to do. I thought about cats (we call each other “cat”) or a pig and a dog (Chinese zodiac)…but a moogle and a chocobo is a good idea too! (Or a cactuar and tonberry haha~)
I’m personally leaning towards To Zanarkand, but I was wondering if it’s because it’s the freshest on my mind. I’m playing the re-mastered FFX collection right now~
naturalflight: nice 🙂 !!! haha always nice to hear from an another girl gamer XD.
Tonberry is really adorable !! ( didn’t think about it) I just thought about moogle because his color match the pink rose cake I wanted. Then i realized how werid it is to have only one.
I was also thinking of putting a tiny moogle plush inside gift bags!!
To Zanarkand is just the most beautiful song , the only concern I had was it was too sad. But it will be really cool, since all my friends ( most) are gamers too. They will get the reference 🙂 and add something special to our wedding.
Congrats!! show me your topper when you are done! you have to post it !!!!
Ohmygod I had no idea there were other gamers on here! I LOVE final fantasy! 😍😍😍
i think to zanarkand and aeriths themes are both lovely choices!
i quite like Yuna’s Ballad too – but it also makes me think of the sad moments that it plays during X-2 so perhaps not.
also on a slight spin off – any final fantasy XIV players on moogle server? always looking for friends on there! 😍
im literally having like a fan girl moment here that you guys love final fantasy too!!!!! Unfortunately my fiancé has never played it and isn’t really interested so I’ve had to keep my inner geek in check while wedding planning 😂
naturalflight: OMG! Big nerd girl video game fan here and love love love Final Fantasy. Would most likely do this for mine if I had an option! Personally I love the eyes on me song from FF8, beautiful, slow and elegant.
naturalflight: I personally love Julia and find To Zanarkand a bit too somber, but that’s just my opinion! I walked down the aisle to a piano piece from my favourite anime series, so it’s definitely not out there at all 🙂
I think ‘The Promise’ has the right mix of sweetness emotion for a wedding. Since you had some FF10 music up there, what about ‘Suteki Da Ne’? I think it has still has that feeling the other pieces have, but with a slightly more danceable rhythm section, since it’s like a pop song. Conducive to more hugging/penguin waddling 😛
