My wedding is in less than a month and I am still having such a hard time choosing songs! I am looking for suggestions for first dance songs, father daughter, mother son, and reception entrance songs. My fiancé and I lean towards country songs but are open to suggestions! I don’t want anything that is super overplayed either and I think that is part of the issue I am having…please help!
First dance we are doing Luke Combs Better Together, but also liked Perfect Storm by Brad Paisley and Another by Adam Doleac. Father/Daughter is My Wish By Rascal Flatts. Mother/Son is Don't Blink by Kenny Chesney. Reception for bridal party is Famous Friends by Kane Brown and Chris Young. Reception for us is Glad You Exist Dan and Shay.
I have a over a year still, but the only song I know for sure is that my dad and I are dancing to My Little Girl by Tim McGraw. I've known that would be our song since I was about 10 years old. The top contender currently for my first dance with FH is Take my Hand by Emily Hackett
I had to really think about it, but I remembered the first song that my fiance and I ever danced to as a couple, so we're doing that as our first dance. Maybe you remember a song that played when you got engaged, celebrated a birthday together, or first date. You can also google what was the number one song on the charts when yall first started dating, got engaged, etc. Those could be a little more unique and special to you.
My dad is a musician so I had him record a song that he knows and we're dancing to that as our father-daughter dance. That solves the issue of him potentially being too choked up on the day to play live at my wedding, but it's still meaningful to us. The mother-son dance will be goofy, just like my fiance. They are big Ohio State fans, so they are doing the "O-H-I-O" dance to Hang on Sloopy. That should get my wedding guests on the dance floor for a good time!
