We're planning on dancing to Mazzy Star's "Fade into You" or this great acoustic version of Foo Fighter's "Everlong"...we wanted something different than anything we'd ever seen people dance to!

Were doing "Stand By Me".  We bought our first home this past summer and the day we signed the papers we packed up our dog, sushi, champagne and my laptop and had dinner in the empty rooms.  This was the first song I played and we danced, its one of my favorite memories and the song now represents the beginning of things for us <3

"Fade into You" is a gorgeous song and the acoustic version of "Everlong" by the Foo gives me goosebumps... have you ever seen them sing it live? OMG!!  I like your style, brynn! :)


"Pistol" by Dustin Kensrue is our top contendor.  I have other ideas too.

I love the song "At Last" by Etta James as well! It's perfect however, my Fiance loves classic rock and dosen't want to dance to that song. Does anyone now any good first dance songs that are geared around classic rock?

I wanted to do a country song but FI wanted a rock song...so....I really really wanted to do aerosmith's "i don't want to miss a thing" but...he's not into that to much...I hope I can persuade him.

We are trying to make a decision on our first dance.  We have two songs, one will be durning the wedding and the other one will be our first dance. The choices are "When You Say Nothing at All" and "The Broken Road". Both are beautiful and describe our relationship.  I am leaning to having " When You Say Nothing at All" for the first dance and actually use " The Broken Road in place of the regular processional music.

Oh. My. God. At the Beginning is just about the best song ever, mostly because I first heard it in Anastasia (the greatest animated film of all time...ish...)
