This might not count since I haven’t actually had my wedding yet, lol, but I wanted “Book of Love” by Peter Gabriel. It’s such a sweet, honest song, and I love it. Fiance vetoed, so we’re still looking. I think I will sneak it on the DJ’s list, though!

Our first dance was to Bobby Darin’s “More” because we wanted to go with a classic and uptempo number that we did a single swing to — but months before the wedding, I fell in love with Lady Antebellum’s “When You Got a Good Thing.” We used it at our welcome party/rehearsal dinner instead!

we almost danced to “The Way I Am” by Ingrid Michaelson.  But it was harder to dance to and his mom really thought out other song was better so we got talked into our other song.

Our first dance song started out as Maroon 5 “Back at your door” but Darling Husband eventually veto’d it because of the words in the song. At first we thought it was appropriate b/c this is the third time we’ve dated and were never able to live without each other. Our song ended up being Jason Mraz “Lucky” which was really sweet.

We had a dance off in our living room Smile
(geeks…I know…)

We considered:
Better by Tom Baxter
Let It Be Me by the Everly Brothers
Smile by Uncle Kracker

And I can’t remember what else.

We went with Better by Tom Baxter – it was the nicest to slow dance to…

@AnamCara:That’s a great idea for deciding which one to pick! I think we’ll have to steal that one :).

I guess I am a sucker for a classic, but I considered “At Last” by Etta James.  I had never heard it played at a wedding, but my fiance has heard it at every wedding he has attended.  Thus, we are looking for a different song.  I still love the lyrics to it though.

We both really like “Love Like Crazy” but had already picked our first dance song.  It ended up being our last song.
