We did our first dance to “Never Letting Go” by Connor Duermit! It was unique and we got a lot of compliments on the song choice.

ktb19 :  That is a great song! I considered walking down the aisle to that one.

windycitywedding2019 :  my fiancé and I love this song as well. The lyrics fit perfect as a wedding song. Too upbeat though? It’s not the kind of song you can just sway to. Thoughts?

starryeyedbride1019 :  I would have thought so just listening to it! But I recently went to a wedding where the couple used it. They were mostly swaying, with the occasional twist or twirl, and it ended up being perfect!

I really love “dance with me” by Orleans but SO isn’t a fan.  We will probably do “our” song even though it is probably very trendy, perfect by Ed Sheeran.

Ours is going to be “Your Arms Feel Like Home” by 3 Doors Down. The lyrics match our lives together perfectly.

I am between “The One” by Kodaline and “You’re not alone” by Erutan. Leaning towards the latter as it is easier to dance to.

ak2024 :  I really like “Dance With Me”! I’m trying to pick a songs to dance with my dad to, and he and I both share a lot of favorite songs, we’ve been to lots of concerts together, etc. so it’s proving tough because we both want to pick something that will be perfect – something in the oldies/classic rock realm.

nightskyforest :  I haven’t really thought about father/daughter dance! But maybe something like “sunshine on my shoulders” by John Denver 

and on the topic of Orleans, if I decide to do the tradition of “couples married the longest on the dance floor” dance, then I’d like to have their song “still the one” cause that just seems like a cute and fun song to do that with.

I have been searching for a slower version of No Doubt’s “Running.” It is such a beautiful song.

We’ll be dancing our first dance to “Ain’t Love Strange” by Stanaj. The lyrics are so perfect, and also I like the changes in tempo to allow for a few spins and dips along the way. 🙂
