What's your first dance song?

Recommended Posts

I don't think we're going to have dancing at our reception in Maui, because our ceremony is just before sunset, and the reception is outdoors and there's a 10pm curfew on outdoor events on Maui. We've been trying to come up with a couple of songs for our wedding video though, and probably also for our AHR.

 

I think we've settled on "Fall At Your Feet" (acoustic version) by Crowded House and "Lost Together" by Blue Rodeo. The Canadian brides will know what I'm talking about with that last one!

This was a simple decision for us....David Gray: This year's love. We both love him, and have been to a couple of his concerts. We didn't even have to discuss it.

 

But I am thinking about having romantic songs playing maybe as we are doing pictures or at dinner or something so I love all these ideas! Thanks all :)

As for father daughter dance I have to do that for sure, no matter what happens and I have long had that song picked out. Because you loved me, by Celine Dion. So perfect!

I don't think we are going to have an offical first dance in Jamaica, cuz I want to have our reception on the beach with no music. We only have 22 adults, so I think I will stick with the intimacy of conversation. I am hoping we will be able to hear music somewhere else though. Although I am sure the sound of the ocean will be nice.

 

For our AHR, we just decided yesterday, so it may change - Elvis Presley "I can't help falling in love with you"

YouTube - Elvis Presley - I Cant Help Falling In Love With You

I am afraid it's a little too slow, so we'll see. We are taking dance lessons, we suck at the waltz, but the fox trot is ok. So we may have to change it, but this is the first one (after like 20 suggestions) that we agreed on, so there ya go!

That song was on our list, but got axed for being too slow. There is a version by UB40 that's more lively, so you might want to check that one out. There's a lot of great song that send the message we want to convey, but we listen to them and get bored because they're so slow, and we're certainly not dancers by any stretch of the imagination!

I was just checking out songs on YouTube tonight, and Edwin McCain's Could Not Ask For More gave me goose bumps - that could be the one!

I love Alicia Keys "No One" song and think it would be perfect for our first dance since it will happen on the beach but my fiance thinks its ghetto so he axed it! Ugh!

 

Soo, I think we both decided on Ingrid Michaelson "The Way I Am ". I fell in love with her since I first heard her on Grey's Anatomy.

What I also like about this song is it isn't very long...something like 2:15 . I hate when the song drags on and guests have grown tired of looking at the couple dancing.

This is my choice so far. If we weren't doing a DW I was planning on getting a friend who plays guitar to play so I can sing it to him instead of dancing to it...

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
