@Aleanan – I love that song, but the boy doesn’t. Sigh.

We’re not having a first dance, but if we were, we’d probably dance to “Lover’s Waltz” by A.A. Bondy:

Ours is definitely not traditional.  We’re dancing to “The Man in Me” by Bob Dylan aka the song from the beginning of The Big Lebowski where they are all bowling ;o)

Everything Changes by Staind.  It may not seem appropriate but it’s our song and the only thing I wouldn’t bend on in wedding planning.  All of our music truly represents us, it’s one of the things I look most forward to.

@Inkypoo:  I’m thinking about having ‘nothing else matters’ by Metallica played on the classical guitar during my unity candle lighting part!!!! Just the thought of having a Metallica song played during my ceremony makes me SO EXCITED. 

Best wishes

@hotchildinthecity:  LOVE that song!!

 

Ours will be “If Not For You” by George Harrison.  It’s uptempo and just sounds joyus to me in parts.  I also love the lyrics 🙂

I THINK we’re going to have “Dancing in the Moonlight” by Thin Lizzy. I have no idea how that’s going to work for actual dancing, but it’s definitely one of our songs. The next best “our song” is “Jackie Wilson Said” by Van Morrison, which I would also secretly love to have!

I don’t know if it’s super unconventional, but no one ever has my song, which is Lenny Kravitz-I Belong To You. I love it.

i am considering using ‘forever and always’ by parachute.

What do you think? Is that too sad?

Tangled up in you by Staind – We orignally dated 7 yrs ago and split up right before his first deployment, he was in and out of realtionships after that and I was in a long term realtionship for 5 yrs.  But no matter what we couldnt stop talking always missed each other and always leaned on each other through everything ( i was in an abusive relationship).  well he was single when me and my ex split and we ended up back together and now we are getting married.  he is my best friend and when he was deployed on this third tour he sent me a message saying listen to this song and that it reminded him of me and our lives everytime.  He picked it out for our first dance and I couldnt be happier.
