awww… I love it! When i was in high school, and very into country, I always said my first song (with a certain douche I thought I’d marry at the time, Oh, to be young and stupid!) would be “We Danced” By Brad Paisley. :D.. aww… I still love the song, but it didn’t even pop into my head when thinking of first dances. Probably because of all the bad memories said douche invokes! lol. We’re going to do “Chasing Cars” πŸ˜€

I’m unsure-going through various songs, but I’ve always wanted to dance to “I Cross My Heart” by George Strait since I was little, and Fiance & I danced to that song right before we proposed, so I keep coming back to it for our first dance.

We were going to use “Only You Can Love Me This Way” by Keith Urban. But the DJ didn’t get my list of “special music”… so he didn’t have it….

So we went with “I Can Love You” by Gary Allan. Truthfully, I didn’t even listen to the words or remember the song, I was so caught up in being able to talk to my husband(!) for the first time that day without everyone being able to hear us πŸ™‚

Very pretty song!  I considered God Bless the Broken Road by Rascal Flatts which is country but not in-your-face country πŸ™‚

Our first dance song is “Mary’s Song (oh my my my)” by Taylor Swift.  It’s perfect for my fiance and I because it’s about two kids who grow up and fall in love.

I absolutely LOVE this song. Plus I’m a HUGE Keith Urban fan. When I bought this album and heard this song I cried. It still makes me cry when I hear it.

My fiance and I had already decided on our first dance song which will be

“Like Red on a Rose” by Alan Jackson. It’s very us.

but my fiance did say when he heard this song that he wanted this played at the wedding so we can dance to it πŸ™‚ That melted my heart because he’s not really a mushy type…and he’s not a big fan of Keith.

I was listening to this one this week, the lyrics are important to me, so I thought I would post in case anyone else is as well.


I could not ask for more by Sara Evans
Written by Diane Warren

Lieing here with you
listenin’ to the rain
smilin just to see
the smile upon your face

These are the moments
I thank god that I’m alive
These are the moments I remember all my life
I’ve found all I’ve waited for
And I could not ask for more

Looking in your eyes
seein’ all I need
Everything you are
Is everything to me

These are the moments
I know heaven must exist
These are the moments
I know all I need is this
I’ve found all I’ve waited for
And I could not ask for more

I could not ask for more than this time together
Could not ask for more than this time with you
And Every prayer has been answered,
Every dream I’ve had’s come true
I’ve found all I’ve waited for,
And I could not ask for more.
