First Dance Songs?

Hey everyone!

What song are you going to have playing for your first dance with your future spouse? I really wanted to do "Angel of Mine" by Monica... I really do but the song just makes me burst into tears and they don't stop flowing until the end of the song! It's a beautiful song and totally speaks to me and fh's relationship and everything we've been through, which is why I get so emotional. So now, I'm sort of thinking about having this song as a processional song instead. What are you all doing? Upbeat? Slower tempos? Would love to know!!

    Hi! I love angle of mine. It would make me cry too.


    FH and I are dancing to "I wanna dance with somebody (who loves me)" by Whitney Houston. It's the first song we ever danced to as a couple so thought it would be fitting. 馃槉

    We did Perfect. I cried when listening to certain songs before my wedding day, but I didn鈥檛 cry at all the day of. I was just having a lot of fun and living in the moment and I didn鈥檛 feel the same emotions as when I鈥檓 at home listening.

    Hey Sara,


    Yeah Angel of Mine is super emotional! Tell me about it. Oh yeah, that's definitely a really good song choice. Lots of love in that song and a bit more upbeat. Thank you so much for your input!

    Get a handkerchief and go for it!
    Fh and I chose 鈥淵ou Are The One鈥 by Matt Hires, not a well known artist (unless you watch Gray鈥檚 Anatomy because they love playing his songs lol). We saw him open for our first concert date together and both knew about 4 years ago that it would one day be our song

    Hello,


    I am thinking the song by H.E.R and Daniel Cesar Best Part or Point of it All by Anthony Hamilton. I'm still undecided.

    Our song is Lovesong by the Cure, because we're both a little off beat, but we agreed it was a little too melancholy for the first dance. So we're dancing to Fly Me to the Moon, which is sweet and romantic.
