We've finally decided that we're going to go with Your Song by Elton John, which was my favourite from the beginning.
I'm excited, we're going to set aside some time to practice for our first dance, nothing fancy or anything but I'm clumsy and want to avoid tripping so I want to be prepared for any potential spin moments haha
We’re dancing to “Dear Bobby” by Yellowcard. Not a traditional song- but.. it’s a good compromise for the FH as he’s really into pop punk and alternative metal. And I do enjoy me a good pop punk song. It also has some really adorable lyrics about two old people who grow old together ❤️
We are going with Aerosmith's 'I Don't Want to Miss A Thing' (from the 1998 movie 'Armageddon'). We had previously considered 'All My Life' by Linda Ronstadt & Aaron Neville, but ultimately decided on this one as we danced to it the night I popped the question. That song is still on our definite 'Do Play' list for our wedding though!
Thank you!!! I've loved this song since it came out in the 90's. My dad, fiance and I saw them in Vegas about 5 years ago and I honestly thought that would be our wedding song. And look, 5 years later we choose that song
"our song" is Garth Brook's Shameless but totally didn't work for a first dance song. My husband is definitely a country boy and wanted classic country so he chose George Strait's Carried Away 💜🥲 then we broke into my go-to wedding song that I'm known to be the only one on the dance floor for - Cotton Eyed Joe 😂😂 we had a great time.
Another big factor is, we want to include a Chinese song somewhere, whether it be during the ceremony, one of the entrance songs, or even the first dance so our short list includes a few Chinese ballads.
