- Wedding: October 2014
So FI and I dont exactly have a song….(well technically the first song we danced to was BuckCherry Crazy B*** in a club when we were 18 &19 drunk at a party….so we JOKE that it is our song….so obviously we are at square one here so work with me….)
We have found several songs we LOVE, but when we sit down and look at the lyrics we dont think its fitting…and well some of the prettiest songs are just soo wrong for a first dance song if you actually listen to the lyrics…..
Also FI is not a country fan….so what seems like 98% of the song recomendations for a first dance songs are out the window….he would like something alittle upbeat that we can still dance too….and he HATES Elvis….so thats out…..ugh….
here are what Ive gotten MAYBEs too….which isnt much….lol….weve got three songs…and I am still iffy on them….I love my FI and he has pretty much given me free reign in wedding planning and has approved everything I have brought to him….from decor to flowers, and misc nonsense that most guys dont care about (like the guest book…lol)…hes been so supportive and has sat with me for hours and hours picking out even the most mundane parts of our wedding…..and this is the ONLY thing he has been super picky and I want him to have a big say in it….with it still being appropriate!! And in reality hes not being that picky…we find tons of songs we love, then listen to them closer and both go….ohhh well thats not appropriate! He loves me and I know he WOULD do a country song if I really asked him to he would do it to make me happy! But I really want this to be a special deal for him…and I know he tolerates country music in the house because he loves me….no matter how much the “twanginess” drives him up the wall….
soo here are the three we have so far:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=un0pNlLlWc4– acoutsic version of goo goo dolls Iris….like the music, some of the lyrics a tiny bit iffy (you cant fight the tears that aint commin’ or the moment of truth in your lies) but over all one of our favorites….and a song that he suggested be our first dance song about 4 years before we were actually engaged! but now he questions it because of the lyrics….
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WKsyxZWQ_g0 -start of something good by daughtry —great song, super sweat lyrics….love the music….but our hang up is it seems to be more about the very beginning of a relationship and we will have been together for 7.5 years on our wedding day….so not exatcly at the beginning, but we will be at the beginning of a marriage….so not sure if its completely appropriate….
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5hQK6GIrpYU — Dave Barnes God gave me you (Most people are more familiar with the country cover by Blake Shelton which I adore but FI dosent like country so we thought this was a good compromise) and it is my favorite, but FI likes it but isnt in love with the idea of the song….i think hed like something idk more manly if that makes sense….hes a huge rock fan…lol….
someone please tell me I am not the only one finding it this ridikulously hard and over analyzing the songs….
dont even get me started on the mother-son dance….lol….Ive had the father-daugther picked out for years….haha….
