Oooh!  It is my #1 wish to help another couple find their first dance song!  What are your tastes in music?

Do y’all have a "song"? We’ll be dancing to Isn’t She Lovely by Stevie Wonder in honor of our daughter (it’s our vow renewal) On the night we eloped, we danced to At Last by Etta James in the middle of the Bellagio. We will probably also dance to that as well.

First, decide on a slow song or a medium tempo song.

Then think about the kind of music you like, favorite songs, favorite bands. I bet you’ll find one in no time. Good Luck.

"Hey Ya" by matt weddle.  It’s a remake of the Outkast version, slower, and acoustic.  We didn’t want anything too lovey dovey- because in public we’re not a lovey dovey couple.  (we’re in the closet!)

 

 

   I like when couples choose different or classic first dance songs.  My cousin danced to "all my life" by K-C and Jo Jo when it was really popular… I think him and his wife both cringe now when someone brings that up.  (not that there’s anything wrong with that song brides who are choosing that as their song! πŸ™‚

Up until two weeks before the wedding, we couldn’t agree on a song for our first dance, but when we heard Boyz II Men’s "Just My Imagination" on the radio we both turned to each other and had an a-ha moment, it was the perfect song for us!

Oohh! I’ve been doing tons of research on this! During our ceremony, my two girlfriends are going to play guitar and sing Green Eyes by Coldplay. They are both musicians and perform locally! My guy and I both have green eyes and the lyrics are perfect!! We’re still debating our song for the first dance, but we don’t want to be too traditional and dance to all the same wedding songs everyone uses! I want to entertain my guests, not bore them with the same-o-same-o. (No offense anyone!!)

some more ideas

country:

These Are The Days – Sugarland

Take Me There- Rascal Flatts

Lost In This Moment – Big & Rich

Other style:

Groove Me – King Floyd (our favoriate so far! Great sexy couple song with a great beat to dance to!) Music sets the mood, so choose wisely!

We’ve taken that version of hey ya and had it cut down to 3 minutes.  There’s a lot of it you don’t need… don’t rule out altering songs πŸ™‚

@maureen9004–Help out a tecnhologically-challenged bride here! Can you explain how you ripped and edited that?  I think Fiance and I would like something a little more "offbeat" for our first dance song, and this would totally fit the bill!

I wanted to do something a little different from the usual so we narrowed it down to 2 songs: DMB "Steady as we go" and Michelle Featherstone "We are man and wife" both are great.
