    We went retro and used As Time Goes By from Casablanca

    We also had the DJ play the first dance songs for our bridal party during the reception. Every else was already married.  These included Freebird (Lynryd Skynrd), Paper Moon (From the movie of the same name), Fly me to the Moon (Frank Sinatra), Ain't No Sunshine When she's Gone (Bill Withers), All I need is You (U2), Come Away with me (Norah Jones), At Last (Etta James) and I'm so Happy when I dance with you (Beatles)

    We're planning to use "You're the Inspiration" by Chicago, but might switch to "Night and Day" (by Cole Porter, the Frank Sinatra version) if it's easier to choreograph.

    My FI proposed to me using a line from Train's song "Marry Me" so there was no question I wanted that as the song we use for our first dance.

    We have a few different ideas... At Last by Etta James, Maroon 5's version of The Way You Look Tonight, Copeland's version of Take My Breath Away, or Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol...

    We are actually going to have ours to the bruno Mars song "Just The Way you are".  My fiance says he is reminded of me when he hears this song and he wanted it in the wedding, since the music was picked for the ceremony already we decided to use it for our first dance.

    "Faith Hope and Love are some good things he gave us, and the greatest is Love"

    Currently we're considering "Everything" by Michael Buble (our favorite artist) - which is a fast paced song so we want to take dance lessons and have them choreograph a dance to that.
