Okay so we haven’t picked our song yet, we aren’t really agreeing on a song. Fiance really wants it to be Wonderful Tonight by Eric Clapton. I mean I love the song but I don’t think it’s suitable for our first dance. I’d rather do Just the Way you are by Billy Joel, I wanna get next to you by Rose Royce or Crazy Love.
What do you ladies think? Should I just go with FI’s choice since I know that’s what he really wants or should I try convincing him to change his mind?
Or please give me your suggestions! Thanks!

Has he helped with a lot of the decisions on the wedding or has he been indifferent? If he hasn’t put in a lot of input with anything else then to me that would indicate this is something that’s really important to him and I’d probably lean toward going with his choice. If he’s been very vocal along the way (like my FI) then I think I’d look for a neutral song, one neither of you has picked at this point but one you can both agree on which is what we did.

My husband choose our first dance song – he sat me down and told me that I made all the other decisions for our wedding, and that this was important to him. When he picked the song, it brought me to tears when he explained why he choose it!
So if your Fiance is in a similar position, I would go with the song he wants 🙂

He’s helped me but I know music is something he is very passionate about. He has an itunes collection in the thousands. So that is why I told him to pick a song BUT I just want it to be first dance appropriate. He said Wonderful Tonight is a song that always reminds him of me, because he goes on and on about how beautiful and special I am. So I don’t know….I really want to let him make this decision but I want a song that’ll mean something to BOTH of us. A song that’ll remind me of him and the love we share.
