Me and my Fiance had thought about using This Years Love by David Gray. When I told a couple of friends about this they seemed to think the song was not appropriate for a first dance or a wedding at all.
While yes the song is not exactlyt he gushiest songs every written I think it is beautiful song and I think that considering both fiance and I had had really horrible past relationships and marriages and had pretty much given up on love and didnt even want it when we found each other that it is perfect. Because to me this is what the song is saying. THis one better last because I have had to many bad ones and even though i am worried about it … im gonna give it one last chance with you.
This was also the first song we ever danced to even though it was in our living room lol
I just want your opinions on this song for a first dance

If the song has meaning to you, then use it, whatever it may be. It really doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks, and most people don’t pay attention to the first dance or notice the lyrics anyway, unless it is blatantly offensive.

It’s a great song! Doesn’t matter what your friends say, I say got for it if it fits you as a couple. Even cuter that it was the first song you danced to! I got little chills when I read that. So sweet!

I love that song, but think it is kind of sad. I always thought it was about a relationship that was struggling or on the verge of ending.
That being said, it is a pretty song and if it has special significance to you, go for it.

Angela… i could see how you could interpret it that way… I think everyone has their own interpretation of everything depending on how they relate it to themselves.
I might have it wrong but that is just not what it says to me 🙂

That’s one of my favorite songs! I love David Gray! But I agree with Angela..I’ve always thought of it as a sad, love song. But if you love it, go for it. And most people won’t be listening to the lyrics anyway..they’ll just be smiling while watching you two dance. 🙂

I LOVE that song. The song we’re using for our first dance is totally NOT traditional and probably not really a “wedding-y” song but we love it and it just fits us.
Do what you want.
