Ok so I know some bees will call me crazy for having a rock song be our first dance song but this is one part of my wedding where I will not be a cookie cutter bride :). Now I know that Atreyu (the band) is usually a screamo band (I promise the song has no screaming in it) but it is my Fi and my favorite band! We both love this style of music and when we take road trips together this is the only band we play. At first I didn’t think they had any songs sutiable for our first dance song until I relistened to one of my favorite songs. The words actually match us a bit cuz we were best friends for 5 years before we started dating and took turns “waiting” for the other one, because we were always in relationships when the other was single. The first line of the song is so true because it really did all start with a kiss and our friendship took a whole new level.
I love the chorus:
When the the world comes crashing down and the skies begin to fall,
Ill wait for you
When the days grow old and long and my skins turns into stone,
Ill wait for you
When the pain it seems too much and my heart starts beating out of touch I dont need a thing,
Cause Ill wait for you…
It is so romantic that no matter what we will always be there for each other.
Here is the link to the song Atreyu, “Wait for you”:
Now the words may not match perfectly but most of it works.
Are there anyother rock loving bees out there that are doing a rock song for their first dance song?

I’m all for it! I like nontraditional aspects especially if it is unique to the couple. And quite frankly I just saw the best ever first dance at a friends wedding in July. It was to the Rolling Stones “I Just Want To Make Love To You” and it was fun bc they got into it. It was them!

I like rock music.. going to a slow song just doesn’t seem like us.

If that is what you like and it fits you, then use it. Your guests will appreciate and remember nontraditional elements that fit your personalities that are not the same as everyone else.

I love the non traditional touches. Since Fiance and I met at a metal concert and are both big metalheads, we’re thinking of dancing to a Vitamin String Quartet version of a Slayer song.

Sounds great! I love rock music, and our first dance song would’ve been a rock song… if we didn’t have special meaning behind “Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing” (it was the first song we ever danced to, on our first date, late at night, in a parking lot… so yea). Anyway, we did Shinedown’s version of Simple Man for the mother/son dance and everyone went crazy! 🙂

I think that all brides should pick a song they love and means something, not try and fit into a mold. We toyed with a Zeppelin song, but I eventually won out with a 40’s classic that I have imagined dancing with Fiance to since we started dating.
