What's your first dance song?

Recommended Posts

We finally decided - I gave my FI 4 options - he liked them all and was no help narrowing them down so I went with my favorite - Can't Take My Eyes Off of You by Frankie Valli.  I like it for the words, but also the beat - it starts out slow but then picks up so you can do some spins, kicks, dips, etc.  I think it will be fun...if I don't step all over FI feet.

We have a few that we were going back and forth on, but after reading all these great suggestions it will make the choice harder!

Hi everyone, so my FI and I didn't have a song but  when I brought it up , he told me he already had a song he wanted us to dance to. It's called YOU ARE by Charlie Wilson. I teared up when I first heard it.

 

My question is , this song is a love song that a man sings to his woman. Is that okay to do? I always thought first dances had to relate to both man and woman? Either way I am 99% sure we will dance to this unless we find something that tops it

That's a beautiful song, and no song is the wrong song.  How does it make the two of you feel? He def. loves it, but it should be feel special to you too... UNLESS you make a mix of more than one song...it's do-able??

Our song choice is " The Last Time I'll fall in Love" by Eric Benet.  This is the one thing that we knew right away!

 

loved the lyrics:

 

The first time I fell in love was long ago.
I didn't know how to give my love at all.
The next time I settled for what felt so close.
But without romance, you're never gonna fall.
After everything I've learned;
Now it's finally my turn.
This is the last time I'll fall... in love.

The first time we walked under that starry sky,
there was a moment when everything was clear.
I didn't need to ask or even wonder why, because each question is answered when your near.
and I'm wise enough to know when a miracle unfolds, this is the last time I'll fall in love.

Now don't hold back, just let me know.
Could I be moving much too fast or way too slow.
'Cause all of my life, I've waited for this day.
To find that once in a lifetime, this is it, I'll never be the same.

You'll never know what it's taken me to say these words.
And now that I've said them, they could never be enough.
As far as I can see, there's only you and only me.

This is the last time I'll fall in love.
Last time I'll fall in love.
The last time I'll fall... in love.

We wanted to incorporate a bilingual song as our first dance song since we were getting married in Mexico and I have such a connection with Spain. I couldn't believe it was her when I heard it, but Miley Cyrus (I know...I know) and David Bisbal's song: "Cuando te Miro a ti". Recommendation - close your eyes and play it LOUDLY! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sD2c6oBNKoY&feature=related. I didn't tell my husband it was her at first and I just played him the song.  He loved it and had no idea it was her until I came clean :) I sent to my bridesmaids and each one emailed back that they literally cried after listening to it!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
