Alrighty so….one of my bridsemaids will be singing a song at our ceremony…the original song choice is "The Way I Am" by Ingrid Michaelson. I’ve found and purchased a karaoke track for this (we currently have a DJ for both ceremony and reception), so that’s good to go. (Unless we can find a guitarist to play it)
Thennnnn today I randomly came across "We Are Man and Wife" by Michelle Featherstone, here’s a link so you can listen: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PYKYGFcTgmg
I haven’t been able to find a karaoke version of the Michelle Featherstone song, but a friend of mine has a friend that plays piano and we’re gonna see if I can hire him to possibly play at the ceremony.
Sooooo, which do you like better?

I almost used The Way I Am for our first dance, but went with Then by Brad Paisley. (I am a huge country fan.) If I had heard We Are Man and Wife I am sure I would have used that song. I LOVED the lyrics. Two great songs – Good luck choosing!

I think both songs are Great choices!
Our first dance was Ingrid Michelson’s "The Way I Am" – and every time I hear it my Darling Husband and I call each other – we loved the quirky lyrics – not too serious, but still really sweet. We also loved the length of it for our first dance. It is short and sweet – I think it was the perfect length to be on the dance floor with all eyes on us *yikes!*
"We are Man and Wife" is longer and beautiful. It is a bit more dramatic and just not what we were looking for in a first dance song… It really depends on your personalities!
