    I’m with you by a smidge. But what I found funny was that the two songs are so extremely similar.

    What if you had one for a first dance song and one as your alternative entrance song…for the ceremony?

    Marriage is about compromise! My husband picked our song. Was I crazy about it? No, but he said it was “perfect” for us and it made me happy that he actually cared about it! Unless you’re going to be super upset, just let him use his song, because like geekspice said–the songs are quite similar!

    Hmmm… I didn’t vote because I’m wondering if he’s had any strong opinions about other aspects of the wedding.  Most guys aren’t interested in the wedding details so when they do have one that they are adament about, I think it’s usually best to let the guy have his way (so long as it’s reasonable).  However, if you’ve been compromising so he can have a lot of what he wants, then I think you should pick the song.

    I think either is fine, but I just wanted to comment that they are both so SLOW, and the second is even slower than the first. I don’t know what you’re expecting them to teach you, but they’ll probably show you a rumba. I would encourage you to either pick something different that’s a touch faster, or speed his song up.

    The PP had a good point that if he hasn’t had many opinions over the course of planning, you should give him this one. No one is really going to be sitting there thinking “well, this song is more about one person loving the other than mutual love.”  

     ETA just saw your update- in that case, I vote work together to pick a different song. Any dance you do to a song that slow will probably bore the two of you to death halfway though if you’re hoping to do any choreography.

    @kmarie719:  We also didn’t have “a song” and it was soooo hard to find a song we both liked, but I really wanted us to both like/love the song we had (and one thing I wanted was a neutral song like what you want).  Neither of us had strong opinions otherwise so we just kept finding songs until we both loved one and then stopped looking lol. The song we picked has both a male and female singing it together so it works for us.

    I like both, never heard either before.

    I like the sound of his better but I agree with your song sounding more from both of you.  I would say either find a new song, or bring them both and see what the dance instructor says about them, like which would be easier to dance to or whatever.  Hope that helps…

    LOL. I had the same dilemma with my Fiance. He picked an obscure Tim McGraw song that changes rhythm a couple of times. Its a pain to dance to and it’s not really a first dance song. But I gave in because the only input he has had is one cake flavor, the color of his suit and that. So I wanted it to feel like his wedding too. It sounds like you guys are about 50/50 on decisions so maybe think about a different song that you can both agree on.
