I don’t think it is to fast at all, but I do think you should practice before your wedding, just because neither of you are dancers. My Fiance and I are not dancers either, but we will be practicing. We just picked our song. It made us both cry.

It looks like they are rushing themselves. My guess is that they took lessons and are just counting the basic steps. They look really nervous and like they are trying to hard. I think that if you and your Fiance want to use it as your first dance, you would be fine. In my opinion, this song was meant to be danced to slower than the video you found. We are going to be using it as one of our last three songs of the night.

This is a great wedding song – I’m a pianist and I’ve played it for several weddings as pre-ceremony music or what-have-you. I don’t think it’s too fast for a first dance song. My FH and I are with you and yours on the dancing thing – I’m looking into taking a dance lesson before the big day so we look a lot better! I have several friends who have done this – just one half-hour or so dance lesson with a professional so you can actually learn an “old-fashioned” two-step or whatever – much better than turning and hugging, haha!

Not too fast at all!! This was the song my mom walked down the aisle to and my cousins’ first dance song.. also important to my fam πŸ™‚ I think it’s kind of a 1-2-3 1-2-3 waltz if you dance to it “properly,” but I can’t think of a better choice for a hug and sway first dance.
