Song for first dance?

Has anyone thought about what song you are going to have for your first dance? I've been thinking about "Rhythm of Love" by the plain white t's because it seems like it has a nice beat to dance to. I also like "Hey Soul Sister" by Train and "I'm Yours" by Jason Mraz. Still thinking of ideas though!


Re: Song for first dance?

  • We're actually going to waltz to "Nothing Else Matters" by Metallica.

    Metallica is one of FI's favorite bands, so for his birthdya  I got tickets for us to go to a concert. This was still pretty early in our relationship, and I ended up passing out in the mosh pit. When I woke up, he was cradling me in his lap. The band started playing Nothing Else Matters, and he was softly singing it to me while stroking my hair (and he HATES singing). Surprisingly, it took a long time for *me* to convince *him* that it was the perfect song.

  • I'm pretty sure we'll be dancing to "To Make You Feel My Love" by Adele. I just love her sound on that song and it's so sweet. There's not much of a beat, so it makes my FI happier since he doesn't dance so we can just sway easier. :)

  • I'm so back and forth on the 1st dance song. I asked FI for his opinion and he said he doesn't care as long as it's easy to dance to (thanks for the help lol -__-). 

    But I'm pretty sure we're going to go with A Thousand Years by Christina Perri
  • So originally my FI wanted to do phantom of the opera "All i ask of you" BUT he decided against it because we would never hear the song in public.

    So now I can find a new song,  I love Christina Perry's "a thousand years", "I won't give up" jason marz, "God gave me you" Blake Shelton, or "Everything" Micheal Bubble, but who knows what we will choose. 
  • This is probably the only real fight FI and I have had over this wedding! He wants a song I cannot stand (I really can't stand the singers voice, who's name escapes me right now) and I asked him to find someone else who sang it but he is insistant it be this guy. I really wanted "You and Me" by Dave Mathews but FI thinks its too long. We've gone back and forth, but he is really picky about this. I'm now convinced we will be dancing to dead air.

    We are dancing to Crazy Girl by Eli Young Band! FI has always called me his Crazy Girl and it just fits us!
  • we are dancing to "Lucky" by Jason Mraz.

    It was between that and "Speechless" by the Veronicas...

    But, when we started our dance lessons, we decided that "Lucky" was the better song to dance to.
  • We are dancing to "It's Your Love" by Tim McGraw and Faith Hill... At least, that's what it is for now, but it may change.

  • 99% sure we're going for Janet Jackson's "Love Will Never Do Without You". It's not traditional, but it fits so well. If not, probably "I Need You" by Leanne Rimes, which I think is kind of a snooze, but FI likes it.
  • The guys are coming down the isle to a Prince song, my girls and I are coming down to a Prince song, so I'm sure our first dance will be a Prince song LOL.
  • ^LOVE it!!! We're going to play a TON of prince at our reception too. We're in Minneapolis and one of our colors is purple...we're thinking about doing a "purple rain" signature cocktail too lol
  • we are still trying to decide! i would like to waltz, so we need something in a 3/4 time signature (1-2-3, 1-2-3, vs 1-2-3-4). i know that jason mraz i wont give up and christina perri a thousand years are in 3/4 time, but we arent really feeling them. any suggestions would be great!

    before we got engaged i thought i wanted to dance to the acoustic version of brand new colony by the postal service but now that its time to decide i just dont think i am feeling it anymore, it doesnt seem like it would work well to dance to.

  • We're dancing to "The Book of Love" by the Magnetic Fields. It's a little quirky, not too serious, yet romantic, and not overly long. It's one of my Fiance's favorite songs, and one we always listened to on long car rides. :)
