Your First Dance

So, the WW checklist is telling me to research songs this month...and that got me thinking about our first dance song. I'm kind of at a loss on what to pick for that, or even where to start.

What did y'all use for your first dance song? And how did you pick it or what is it's significance to you as a couple?

Thanks!

    We danced to Thank You For Loving Me by Bon Jovi. We just chose a song we both liked, no significance!

    @Sarah, we heard a song on the radio a year or so ago, Lampshade On by The Dustbowl Revival, and decided immediately that it needed to be played at the wedding. But not as our song lol.

    It may be kind of hard for us to find a song that we both like. I'm more into pop/country and FH is into rock/heavy metal. Although we both like classic rock...so maybe I'll have some good luck there.

    At Last by Etta James. I heard it one day and cried. Lol knew it was the song I wanted to be our first dance. This was way before we got engaged. I played it for him when we were talking about wedding songs. He got emotional too.

    We danced to Stay With You by John Legend. We didn't start researching songs until six weeks before the wedding. I loved it and DH was easily convinced once our dance instructor played it for him!

    ETA: Fixed typo! Still getting used to saying DH instead of FH!

    We danced to "Arms of a Woman" by Amos Lee and we picked it about 3 days before our wedding because we didn't have a "song." This song is just beautiful and we really liked it.

    We used the song "With Me" by Sum41. DH and I also have differing taste in music. I like almost everything (preferring alternative and hip hop), and he likes mostly metal, which is one of the only genres I don't care for. Sum41 is a band we actually agree on, so when I stumbled across a love ballad by them, DH and I knew that was our song.

    I think we're going to do Come Away with Me from Norah Jones. I initially wanted a jazz standard, something like Misty or All the Things You Are, but FH wasn't crazy about them.

    We're using H.O.L.Y by Florida Georgia Line. We just both really love that song and it makes us think of us and our relationship.

    @Duckie, we are the exact same. I am a country fan and he loves metal and rock. I discovered on accident one day that he had a list of potential slow songs that he enjoyed, so I chose one from that list. Good luck!

    An Indie song by Travis Bretzer called "Promises." It was an easy choice because FH made a video of our engagement, and that was one of the songs he used in the video!

    "I don't dance" by Lee Brice, fits perfectly because FH doesn't like dancing but will any time I ask to make me happy. It's a slow country song.
