I want to do “Better Together” by Jack Johnson but my Fiance isn’t sold yet, he thinks it might be too fast.

Still deciding, Turn your lights down low by Bob Marley or come away with me by Norah Jones.

@ms.noodle – That’s such a good song, and although I prefer the original, Chan’s version is much more wedding-friendly.

We are dancing to “Two is Better than One” by Boys Like Girls & Taylor Swift.  I like several other songs but this is the one we could agree on.

Eden’s Gate – Pat Green.  It’s a very obscure song that I can bet most people will never have heard before.  But it’s so so perfect for us!

@melissabegins: did you waltz to it? we have a dance lesson in a week and the instructor suggested we bring the music and i’m curious as to how it’ll turn out. i think the song fits us perfectly because we met in the US and moved overseas, blah blah blah 🙂

I love Ben Folds, and ours is also “The Luckiest”- but more for the lyrics than anything else. Fiance and I both had a bumpy road on the way to finding each other, so the song definitely suits us.

I also LOVE Ray LaMontagne- Fiance and I went to a wedding a few months back, and the couple had “You Are The Best Thing” as their first dance song and everyone gathered around them and clapped. I never thought of using that as a first dance song (b/c I thought it was too upbeat), but I have to say it was PERFECT. For all of you who are using it, you are gonna love it and so will your guests! 🙂

For anyone who is into unconventional music, a friend of mine used Nina Simone’s “Feeling Good”  which was totally her. I also know someone else who danced to “This Kind of Love” by Sister Hazel. Just throwin’ out suggestions…

We are going to dance to Tim McGraw -My Best Friend.  I just love the line that says “Life with you makes perfect sense”
