2 first dance songs

I found a song that fits FI & I and we both agreed. He just found another song that is really pretty and he said it reminds him of me.  The lyrics to the first song are better suited to us but it is rare that FI suggests something like this.

Would you do fade one into another so it is the normal song length?
Would you go with the first song and play the 2nd later?
Any other ideas?

    Some people have a first and last dance.... They have the first dance as husband and wife, and then the last dance of the reception before leaving for the honeymoon.

    I just read about something that can be used as an alternative to a first dance, that my fiance and I loved so much we are going to use it in addition to our first dance:  The dj invites all married couples onto the dance floor for a song and announces 5 year increasing increments.  Couples sit down based on how long they have been married until there is only one couple left on the dance floor.  At the end of the song, they share advice with the newlyweds for a lasting marriage.  You could use the second song to do something meaningful like this.
