Are you doing a first dance?

    We're not a traditional couple by any means really but we are still having a first dance.
    Our song we've picked is, Kiss - Forever🖤

    We tried to get out of this but didn't have much luck. I did make my mom have people join after about a minute though

    We didn't have a dance, but we have been taking lessons for a couple years for fun. If we'd had a dance, we would have picked Get Lucky, so that we could show off our merengue skills! Smiley winking

    Yes we are doing a first dance but we want everyone invited to dance with us so it isn't awkward.

    Definitely!!! I've had the song picked out since the day we got engaged. We're not too excited about being the centre of attention, but I still can't wait for this dance.

    We'll have one. I think it's a nice moment despite having all eyes on you. But what else is new at a wedding?
