Comments on: Ahhhh – The Stress of the First Dance Song http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/ahhhh-the-stress-of-the-first-dance-song/ helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank Sun, 21 Dec 2014 07:44:14 +0000 hourly 1 By: Erin http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/ahhhh-the-stress-of-the-first-dance-song/#comment-40426 Mon, 08 Oct 2012 12:57:32 +0000 http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/?p=15929#comment-40426 We just signed up to take a dance class as well. They asked us to bring our song – which we finally decided will be Can’t Help Falling in Love by Elvis. I think it will be perfect for us, I like the lyrics, I like Elvis and I think the tempo will be just right. I’ll know after tomorrow when we have our first dance lesson! I’ve actually never danced with Nick at a wedding, he just doesn’t like to dance and I LOVE to dance. I was talking to FMIL yesterday and she said that she and her husband are the same way, he loves to dance and she does not – you just gotta make it work! Also, I love that song – Fly Me to the Moon, so fun! If Nick was more of a dancer, I’d love to do a first dance like that with a little choreography! Did you do your father/daughter dance and mother/son dance at the same time?

Eventually we stepped back and talked about how we wanted our first dance to look and feel and let that guide our song selection. We took one dance class geared toward couples who needed help with their first dance and agreed we wanted something we could foxtrot or swing to. I put together a playlist of songs and we practiced dancing to them in our kitchen–really helped rule out songs we had hoped would work but were not the right tempo or whatever. In the end we went with Fly Me to the Moon as our first dance and You Are the Sunshine of My Life for the parent-child dance; they may be a little cliche but there is a good reason they are used so often! Plus, now I have an extra sentimental attachment to both, and hearing them unexpectedly brings back some of the joy from the wedding.

Good luck!
