Ours is “Dream a Little Dream of Me” by the Mamas and the Papas.

It’s one of those songs that I just really love and is sentimental to me. My mom really loves the Mamas and the Papas, so it’s music I grew up hearing. Our song was originally “Cheek to Cheek” by Fred Astaire, but we couldn’t find a version that felt right for the first dance (plus it’s hard to top Fred and Ginger dancing to that song).

@Mrs.C.to.bee:  Our plan is pretty much just to practice in the living room watching YouTube videos so we can move around a little without really knowing what we’re doing. My fiance was originally really set on Cheek to Cheek, but I told him we’d have to take dance lessons and work on something coreographed.

I think that’s when he realized we should pick another song, because he realized there’s no way we could awkwardly sway our way through that one, and I really don’t think I could get that man in a dance studio even if I threatened him with Hellfire.

It was “Together” by Tierra. Before we were engaged we saw them in concert and when they played this song we were dancing, I pictured us at our wedding. When it came time to choose a first dance song we had several songs on our list but always came back to “Together”.

We listen to a “old school” radio station and hear it quite a bit. I can recall at least 3 times my husband has called me when he hears our song and sings to me…. that’s priceless!!

We danced to “The Best Part Of Me Is You” by Ricky Martin and Joss Stone.  We wanted a more upbeat song and I love the lyrics!  He really is the best part of me :).

Ours is “one and only” by adele,

The moment we both listened to it we thought it was our song and we both felt that the song really shows how we both felt about each other!

I think we are doing “Count on Me” by Bruno Mars.  It is a fun song and totally fits us as a couple.  FI wanted someone modern….

Ours is Maybe I’m Amazed, by Paul McCartney. We are Beatles fans and this tied in good for us, it was a little more modern and we liked the tempo.

We’re doing You Are The Best Thing by Ray LaMontagne.  This was probably one of the toughest decisions for us to agree on.
