We danced to the hawaiian remake of somewhere over the rainbow. It was beautiful and meant a lot but we didnt realize how long it went until the wedding. When you pick, listen to it all the way through and imagine yourself exhausted and see if you want to dance that whole time to it. We finally just aske dthe dj to fade it out, haha.

We’re going to dance to Norah Jones’ remake of Elvis’ "Love Me Tender."  It’s very simple, romantic, and her voice is so beautiful.  

However, when making the choice, we were also thinking about "I’m Yours" (Jason Mraz), "The Luckiest" (Ben Folds), and "When You Say Nothing at All" (Ronan Keating), but we’re going to incorporate those in other ways (cheesy video time!!)

Ours is "you are so beautiful" by joe cocker. We chose it because in the beginning of our relationship it was the first song we ever danced to and he sings it to me all the time. It was a clear choice for us.

We are dancing to "Revelation" by a Christian band called The Wedding.

It’s abt standing the test of time and how "today is when faith will turn to site" and how the world can do nothing to tear this love apart.

 

It’s great 🙂

We danced to "Manoir de mes Reves" as performed by the Twin Cities Hot Club (it’s a gypsy jazz/swing song from the 30s…slow, with beautiful violin and guitar).

But my favorite dance of the night was our last dance, which we did to "I’ve Had the Time of My Life," as in that song at the end of Dirty Dancing. During the wedding I wanted to dance to it but I couldn’t think of the name of it, so I forgot about it—and then our wonderful DJ played it as the last song of his own accord. Our DJ won all the prizes.

We danced to "Brighter Than Sunshine" by Aqualung.  Our grand entrance song was to "The Good Life" by Kanye West complete with lit sparklers.

We were able to find a live version of Jack Johnson singing Angel followed by Better Together so we are using that as our first dance song.  Our friends danced to Lucky by Jason Mraz and Colbie Calliat and it was really sweet.

We also used "The Way I Am" by Ingrid Michaelson.  Originally we were going to do "Queen of the Slipstream" by Van Morrison, but it was way too long, and so we used it as our last dance instead!

We danced to "I Have and Always Will" by Dave Barnes and we had so many people asking who it was by because they loved it!
