What's your first dance song?

Recommended Posts

Well, now we don't know that we are going to be doing a reception. Originally I wanted to use "Ballerina Girl" by Lionel Richie. The song has a lot of really strong memories for me with my real dad. Over the time FI & I have been engaged though he's come up with every reason possible to not want to come to the wedding or reception. Scared to fly, scared to take a boat, scared to leave his shop. I won't even go there... I'm not impressed with him though since if it were someone else in my family he would.

 

Soooo, I'll probably be doing the father daughter dance with my step-father. I really wasn't sure what to use because we weren't very close when I was growing up, even though my mom has been with him since I was 6. He never really considered me his daughter when I was younger, and he has three daughters of his own. Over the past few years though he's become estranged from his middle and youngest daughter after they stole some large amounts of money from him and used his SSN for some things. Since then for some reason he and I have become a lot closer.

 

I do have one memory of him trying to teach me to waltz when I was about seven. Well we photographed a wedding two weeks ago and the bride used this song called "Cinderella" by Steven Curtis Chapman. I LOVED it. So I think that is the song we'll be using.

 

Listen to the song: YouTube - Steven Curtis Chapman-Cinderella *Includes Lyrics*

 

She spins and she sways

To whatever song plays

Without a care in the world

And I'm sitting here wearing

The weight of the world on my shoulders

 

It's been a long day

And there's still work to do

She's pulling at me

Saying "Dad, I need you

 

There's a ball at the castle

And I've been invited

And I need to practice my dancing

Oh, please, Daddy, please?"

 

So I will dance with Cinderella

While she is here in my arms

'Cause I know something the prince never knew

Oooooh, I will dance with Cinderella

I don't wanna miss even one song

'Cause all too soon the clock will strike midnight

And she'll be gone...

 

She says he's a nice guy and I'd be impressed

She wants to know if I approve of her dress

She says, "Dad, the prom is just one week away

And I need to practice my dancing

Oh, please, Daddy, please?"

 

So I will dance with Cinderella

While she is here in my arms

'Cause I know something the prince never knew

Ooh-oh ooh-oh I will dance with Cinderella

I don't want to miss even one song

'Cause all too soon the clock will strike midnight

And she'll be gone

 

She will be gone

 

Well, she came home today with a ring on her hand

Just glowing and telling us all they had planned

She says, "Dad, the wedding's still six months away

But I need to practice my dancing

Oh, please, Daddy, please?"

 

So I will dance with Cinderella

While she is here in my arms

'Cause I know something the prince never knew

Ooh-oh ooh-oh I will dance with Cinderella

I don't want to miss even one song

'Cause all too soon the clock will strike midnight

And she'll be gone

That was one of our choices too!! If you like DMB then check out Crush & Steady as we Go (we're using this one!). We also considered Where are you going and Love of my Life (Dave Matthews & Santana). We are HUGE DMB fans!!

Whoops! I was looking at that Father/Daughter dance thread at the same time and just realized I posted in the wrong spot.

 

We're using "Kiss the Girl" from the Little Mermaid. FI and I both love Disney and thought the beat sort of matches the feel of the Bahamas.

We are definitely going for the fun/funny route. We're both goofy and not the lovey-dovey type... and Since we have a reggae band, our options are limited, so its either between

Can't get enough (of your love) - by Barry White... because its fun, and quick, and we can do funny dancing like the "lasso" and the fishing hook thing...

 

Or because we are in Jamaica and the band, we might do "No woman, no cry"- Bob Marley ... because again, that's just funny...

Jack Johnson "Better Together"

 

It's sweet and relaxing...also very beachy! The minute I heard it I knew it would be our wedding song...I know it's kind of old now, but I love it!

we are having a tough time deciding also. my FSIL used the song I would have pick for her wedding, by carrie underwood, inside your heaven. I liked it because he would come over when we first dating and watch idol together and she won that year with that song and it is a beautiful song.

My friend found for me, "all my life" by Jo-Jo and K-Ci. I really like the lyrics to that one.

We're trying to decide between "Love of a Lifetime' by Firehouse and 'Wonderful Tonight' by Eric Clapton. We really love both of these songs.... and just can't make a decision! undecided.gif

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
