    I don’t like Justin Bieber but I think it’s a good song to be true to you but not ‘too crazy’. It’s fun and got a little electronic feel but still nice lyrics and romantic tone. We love EDM too and are doing All I Ever Wanted by Micheal Burn. We were initally worried it would be too hard to do a traditional couple dance to but are taking lessons and our teacher has come up with a great mix of foxtrot, hustle, and merengue that works with it. I’m super excited to be different and us. I say go for it. You’ll have more fun doing a song you love.

    Can I vote no just based on it being a Justin Beiber song?

    It’s okay.  I’d probably skip it for a couple of reasons, the first being I don’t care for JB.  The second is it kinda sounds as though maybe she’s trying to break up with him and he’s trying to convince her otherwise, which isn’t super romantic to me.  I think I take lyrics too seriously.  If I weren’t thinking that hard, it sounds fine if that’s your style of music.

    I would not want to remember my first dance with my husband as something with JB in the background…*shudder*, but hey, whatever floats your boat.

    AquariusLove :  Hey OP 🙂 I for starters, freaking LOVE that song but not really for first dance.

    The last weddding we attended the couple chose Mirror by Justin Timerlake as their first dance song which is as up-tempo as I think you want but a bit more romantic?

    Just a suggestion. As a guest I remember thinking it was cool choice

    Oh man I know people are hard on the BiebZ, … I am a not so closet anymore Bieber fan. We did the acoustic version of As Long As You Love Me as out wedding song. Fuck everyone’s opinion and if you love it, go for it!

    It’s Justin Bieber… I mean, I’m still an N’SYNC fan, but I wouldn’t choose to subject my guests to it for 2 long meaningful minutes. But hey, if you love it, and you feel it’s the best first dance song for you and your spouse, then go for it.

    JB gets a lot of hate, but his current album is great. I think the song is fine, but I think it would be really really hard for you to dance to unless you can find an acoustic slowed down version.

    Your dance, your song choice. If you feel it represents you guys, go for it.

    His current album is great because he finally collabd with producers and songwriters who know what the fuck they’re doing haha. Justin Bieber probably sucks as a person and at a lot of things but his vocal technique is objectively fantastic (speaking form experience as a degreed musician who both performs and teaches for a living), and his newer production team rules. I know you didn’t really ask for opinions on that, but there it is 😂.

     

    Personally, I would only choose a song that meant a lot to our relationship. But if you don’t really have a “couples song”, I suppose something with good lyrics that you would enjoy listening to would do!

    AquariusLove :  “Let Me Love You” doesn’t sound romantic to me, because it sounds like the girl is trying to break up with him and he is pleading with her not to.

    Not sure how you feel about Coldplay or the Chainsmokers, but I’ve been digging “Something Just Like This” recently and it has a romantic. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FM7MFYoylVs

    I also like this one, but maybe it’s too corny: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RmFsBXEDsG0
