What did you have or what are you having as a first dance song?

We're thinking of having Maybe I'm Amazed by Paul McCartney, what do you think? Would that pass as a 1st dance song?

we had 'have i told you lately that i love you' by van morrison

if i was getting married now at the age
i got married then iyswim, i think i might have 'thinking' by ed sheerhan

does the song have some meaning for you?

therootoftheroot Sat 27-May-17 12:31:22

sorry meant to say-it IS a beautiful song

Be mine by David Gray.

My ex chose ours. . .
The hokey cokey. .
Maybe contributed to our reasons for divorce!!

We had Kiss Me by Sixpence None The Richer.

It doesn't really have any meaning to us, we don't really have a song so struggling a bit and liked the lyrics.

I would have How do you feel by Ed Sheeran but OH doesn't like him.

Imgettingmarried Sat 27-May-17 12:52:05

How would you feel even.

We are trying to find a rock song to use,but most slow ones are negative stories etc.

Metallica - Nothing Else Matters.

In hindsight a shorter song could have been better but I don't regret it wink

FauxPasadena Sat 27-May-17 12:56:05

I never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don't just say
Nothing else matters^ ^

We had Kodaline "The One" the words were/are perfect 😊

MumBod Sat 27-May-17 12:57:31

We Had Let's Stay Together by Al Green we didn't.

If you're looking for a rock song, a friend had Don't Want To Miss A Thing by Aerosmith.

fizzytonicplease Sat 27-May-17 12:58:55

Me and Dh had 'Aerosmith don't wanna miss a thing'

fizzytonicplease Sat 27-May-17 12:59:40

** don't want to miss a thing
Not don't wanna

Imgettingmarried Sat 27-May-17 12:59:54

Vivienne have you tried Here's to us by Halestorm? It does have a few swear words in it though.

ClashCityRocker Sat 27-May-17 13:01:15

We had last night on earth by green day.

I got my husband to agree to it when he was pissed.

Twerking9to5 Sat 27-May-17 13:03:11

We had Happy Together by the Turtles-liked the lyrics!

VivienneWestwoodsKnickers Sat 27-May-17 13:09:10

Great idea imgettingmarried will put it on the list.

FauxPasadena that's exactly the song we want, but want a shorter version!

AndNoneForGretchenWieners Sat 27-May-17 13:12:58

We had Eternal Flame for ours. I also considered Now and Forever by Richard Marx and Lavender by Marillion but DH wasn't too keen and wanted It Must Be Love by Madness. Eternal Flame was the only one we could agree on.

izzibee29 Sat 27-May-17 13:17:23

We had morcombe and wise, bring me sunshine. Short sweet happy, big band and fun.

MumBod Sat 27-May-17 13:18:35

My niece had You're My Best Friend by Queen. Quite sweet.

TheRollingCrone Sat 27-May-17 13:18:44

Sideways by Citizen Cope but I secretly wanted Forever And Ever by Demis Roussos

Tretchikoff Sat 27-May-17 13:21:17

Sunshine on Leith by the Proclaimers.

Diehard Hibs DH!

OdinsLoveChild Sat 27-May-17 13:23:50

We didn't bother and not one person noticed . I probably would have gone for something along the lines of David Bowie Absolute Beginners.

DH is a whole 12 inches taller than me, its not the easiest thing to do, dance with someone who has that huge height difference plus DH cant dance for toffee
