opinions on the length

"You Send Me" by Sam Cooke has a lot of meaning and memories for my fiance and I, so we would like to include it in our wedding.  The length is about 2 minutes and 45 seconds.  Is this an ok length for a first dance, or is it a little too short?

    I think it's perfect.  Ours was almost 2 minutes exactly.  Believe me, it will seem longer.

    Your guests will love you for a 2 minute 45 second dance.  Really, think back to weddings you've attended.  How long do you want to watch someone else dance?
    "Trix, it's what they/our parents wanted. Why so judgemental? And why is your wedding date over a year and a half ago? And why do you not have a groom's name? And why have you posted over 12,000 posts? And why do you always say mean things to brides?" palegirl146
