I like the song-but my first reaction (as I was trying to sway back and forth to the beat, mind you πŸ™‚ ) was: "hmm…that does seem like an awkward song to try to dance to…"  Have you tested it out?  πŸ™‚  I’m wondering if a living room dance session is in order???! πŸ™‚ I do like the song though, and ultimately, what matters is that the song is right for you…you can always just opt for dancing at a pace a little bit slower than the tempo-you’ll be in your own world anyway…AND, people will be concentrating on trying to figure out what you two are saying when you’re whispering to eachother while you dance-they won’t notice your rythm.  πŸ™‚

Keep us posted!

πŸ™‚ I’m at home, sick with a cold, I have time to troubleshoot…I’m listening to it again, the entire way through this time…

Hmmm…okay, I think I may be onto something πŸ™‚ 

Try adding a spin at the point where the trumpets or whatever that instrument is that breaks in every now and then starts up…then, by the time your hubbs-to-be has you back in his arms it will be perfect timing to dance normally again…I’m thinking the kind of sway-y slow dancing that isn’t as structured and continuous might work best…try living room dance session take 2! :))))  Good luck!

ok…My cousin just got married on June 5th and this song was their first dance song…it was AWESOME!!!  She likes to dance…he doesn’t AT ALL and they pulled it off. Maybe one of the cutest first dances ever. They did a little dip in there and a couple spins just for fun but I know they practiced a lot so that they wouldnt feel nervous. So I would stick with it if I were you..it was great!! I thought it was a really sweet first dance song! Good Luck πŸ™‚

I actually really love this song, but we had already chosen our first dance song when it came out.  I think you can definitely pull it off with a little pre-planning.  Also, even if you’re not working the choreography perfectly, your friends and family will just be happy to see you out there and happy.  Have fun and enjoy, it’s your day! πŸ™‚

=) You won’t be able to waltz, but I’m sure you’ll be able to do it. If you can afford the time and money, definitely try to get into some dance classes, preferably one that specializes in weddings that will help you to come up with step combinations specific to the song. The only problem with this song is it’s a little too upbeat for a waltz, but a little too slow for a jive. Maybe a foxtrot?

If you can’t spring professional lessons, look to the Internet! They are clever. =)

I love that song too! I was having pretty much the same problem expect i felt our song was too slow. LOL We have chose "Like Red on a Rose" By Alan Jackson. It’s a beautiful song, but very slow and while i love it am still worried that we will look awkward because its so slow. LOL so my fiance and I are going to take some lessons…we need it anyway. But that is what i would recommend to you, a professional will definitely be able to help you!

 another idea: I saw on a board, not sure if it was this one or another wedding site board, but someone had that song be the last dance song. I loved that idea! It is very upbeat and not traditional like "Last Dance" which i absolutely cannot stand. But you could always think about that idea…i think we’re going to do that πŸ™‚
