First Dance

So my future hubby and i are talking about first dance songs. We like songs from the 40's or 50's era. But anything that sounds classy would do. We have two awesome ideas so far. Frank Sinatra - The Way You Look Tonight and Etta James- At Last.


I wonder if any of you could give me some ideas. Song titles and the artists that sing them.


Thanks so much.

Were having a similar problem- as of now we are using Frank Sinatra "The way you look tonight" were having a romantic, Italian themed wedding, so were trying to keep the song related to that- but can't decide!  I'm open to suggestions too!


www.weddingwire.com has some suggestions too


- HMM :)

Our song was You're Nobody 'Til Somebody Loves You - Dean Martin.


We also discussed using Frank Sinatra's Young At Heart and Nat King Cole's When I Fall In Love.

we are dancing to at last too.


i really looked into lots of options but i love our first dance so much, we took lessons and had something cherographed (using the night club two step). I think it looks really beautiful actually...


i think it's going to be one of the high lights of our reception.

Norah Jones has that feel also, and has a number of nice songs.
