Who knew that picking our first dance song would be so stressful? I thought it would be easy; my music loving fiance would suggest something, send me a link and I'd be all YAY! I LOVE IT! That so has not happened! So far, we've gone back and forth suggesting songs to each other and not finding anything we love and feel is us and first dance appropriate (slow, but not too slow, the right lyrics, the right artist, not too cliche, etc.)
Here are some of the songs we have send to each other:
Same issues as before, they wouldn't be something we could easily dance to. Nick thought the Elvis song is a little sad sounding, I like it, and he loves Elvis. My younger brother is a talented singer and guitar player and he said he would be willing to play and sing a song for us, but we still have to pick something. I've searched the web for some inspiration, but I keep seeing the same things and none of them feel right. So, we're back to square one trying to choose a song and having a pretty hard time. I can't decide if that means that I don't care about it or that I care too much! What do you think?
Nick is also very nervous about dancing, so we're thinking about taking some lessons so that it will feel a little more natural for both of us. I don't think I've ever seen a bad first dance, because they are always sweet and meaningful, but I can imagine you're felling overly nervous already and emotional, it's easy to get caught up in the moment and forget what you're supposed to be doing! We found out from a friend that there is a studio near us where you can try a lesson for free before you sign up for other classes, so I think we will end up doing that.
Did you take dance lessons before your wedding? Did you have a hard time picking your first dance song? Have you known what your song will be for a while? Are you still struggling?
