Whip It.

No, just kidding, but I am going to try for it just to see his reaction. I have no idea! I might just let him decide.

Shania Twain, Still the One. I never in a million years would have thought I’d have a Shania song (I was thinking more “At Last” or “Unchained Melody”). I’d heard the song a million times but never really paid attention to the lyrics until a few months ago, and they just describe us and our relationship perfectly. Like it was written for us. I played the song for Fiance that day and told him to listen to the words, and his jaw dropped. I could tear up just thinking about how perfect it is, actually. Good grief!!

We’re using “The Way you Look Tonight” by Frank Sinatra. It’s more up-beat than a normal first dance song. Plus, the words are very sweet! Good luck!

Since it’s December in the mountains of VA, we’re using “I’ve Got My Love To Keep Me Warm” by Frank Sinatra.  It has a GREAT beat and he’ll be good at whirling me around the dance floor (hopefully my bustle will work well).

WE are using Gettin’ you home (little black dress) song.  I don’t know why.  My Fiance and I love it and think it is funny and cute, but I think we kinda chose it to throw off his super picky grandparents and aunts and uncles. Hehe. but he did choose it

We’re going with a song from a relatively unknown Irish singer, Declan O’Rourke.  The song is “Galileo” and you can find the song on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cg0AntKH6ss

 

He’s an artist we listened to on repeat while we were dating and falling in love–it’s personal and most people won’t know it, but hopefully our guests will listen to the lyrics and find it as special of a song as we do!

Por una Cabeza and we are going to try to replicate the tango from the movie True Lies.

We think we’re going to use “Swallowed in the Sea” by Coldplay. We’re both huge Coldplay fans and the song means a lot to both of us.

We have ours narrowed down to four completely different choices and I think we are going to put it up to a vote on our website because we really can’t decide! 

We’ve got KISS Forever because Fiance has a love of 80’s hair bands, Take That Rule the World because it would be FI’s theme song if he had one (I know, he’s a nut!  but so am I), Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers Islands in the Stream because man, I love that song, and I like the idea of having a sort of silly dance because neither of us can actually dance, and then a more contemporary song like by Jason Mraz or Ben Folds to be a little more traditional.  I really think I’d be happy with any of these even the KISS song cause I know Fiance would be so happy and I like it well enough.

Tiny Dancer by Elton John – it’s our song! 

Dance lessons are in our future, for sure.

We are using True Love Ways by Buddy Holly, before we decided on that we were considering the acoustic version of Everlong by the Foo Fighters and Ryan Adams’ version of Wonderwall.

We’re doing Michael Buble’s version of “Everything” I know it’s probably an overused generic song for a wedding, but it has special meaning to us; it’s what was playing when Fiance kissed me the first time.

We’re doing Just You’n’Me by Chicago… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yu8Xqk7ZdBc&feature=player_embedded

Our song is “You’re still the one” by Orleans and we didn’t think we’d be able to dance to it well… Just you’n’me is a bit slower and I love the lyrics. Chicago has a few great songs actually!

We’re using ‘She’s Everything’ by Brad Paisley! It was the first song we ever danced to, and everytime it comes on my fiance says it was written about me. It wasn’t even a choice for us.
