MY Fiance and I picked "Falling Slowly" by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova from the indie movie Once.  The song actually won the Oscar this year for Best Original Song.  My Fiance and I loved this movie and it just so happened to play on the radio right before he proposed.

We are dancing to "Come Away with Me" by Nora Jones (love her…), it is so beautiful — I tear up everytime I hear it during our dance classes.

I don’t have a suggestion.  We are dancing to "Baby it’s Fact" by Hellogoodbye and we hired "Orange County Wedding Dance" to choreograph it for us.  It is going to be lots of fun!

We’re dancing to Jason Mraz "I’m Yours".  Cute and not too sappy! It took us a while to choose.  You’ll know when you’ve found the right song…trust me!

i struggled with this for a while as my Fiance was fairly open to many different songs…..

for now its John Legend’s "Stay With You"….it’s 4 mins long so i’m really hoping our dj can edit it down to 3 mins tops.

i’m pretty sure we’re sticking with this one bc nothing else is really grabbing me and he’s happy with this choice.

We danced to "The Luckiest" by Ben Folds. It is not a typical first dance song, or love song, for that matter. We loved the sweet message and it was just perfect for us. It is a nice and slow song that is easy to dance to. We had tons of guests asking us what it was afterwards…we loved it, they loved it, perfect!

We’ll be dancing to Jason Mraz’s song, "Lucky." It’s cutie and a lovely duet. We’re actually thinking of recording it with us singing it. The lyrics are also significant to us because we were long distance for most of our relationship before we got engaged. We’re saving "our song" for the last song of the night and it’s Stevie Wonder’s "I believe."

Brookem, I was at a wedding where they used that DMB cover of In My Life for the first dance, and it was perfect!  So sweet, and the short length is a bonus too 🙂

We danced to "I’m Sticking with You" by Velvet Underground.  Recently made popular by the Juno soundtrack, but it’s kinda been our song for a long time.  We’re not dancers really, so we wanted something sweet and silly– it was exactly that!

Good luck!

We’re dancing a rumba to "And I love her" by the Beatles. It’s quite a romantic song! 🙂

We’re dancing to "Come Away With Me" by Norah Jones, but Van Morrison’s "Moon Dance" made our final cut and I’m not sure that we shouldn’t have gone with it.

My DJ has a good list on his site:

Our first dance song was “Then” by Brad Paisley.
