First dance songs-help!

Hi everyone



Me and h2b are getting married next april and we're having trouble finding a song for our first dance. We don't want anything really cheesy like Barry White's Everything, but something fairly slow that basically says i love you. does anyone have any suggestions,

    Off the top of me head no I don't have any suggestions but I may have a little look and let you know.



    However if the wedding is still a little way off and you don't have an 'our song' I would maybe advise not going looking for one just yet. You may find that you hear something on the radio in the next couple of months and think 'that's it' or it may be something that doesn't get released until much nearer the wedding or you may have a 'special moment' to a particular song and then think that is the one. So if there is time I don't think it is something that needs to be pushed for cos you could still actually choose the very day before the wedding - you onhly have to tell the DJ image



    Good luck with 'easy' listening (ie don't stress over it and feel you have to listen to every CD in your collection NOW -rather than pick and easy listening song!) and I will have a little hunt out for you myself.

    We're having Better Together by Jack Johnson - lovely words if you listen to it and its not too slow or fast either!



  • Jazz standards can be good as they can be played at different speeds. Some that say 'I love you' are 'Love is here to stay' (Irving Berlin), 'So in love' (Cole Porter) and 'Do I love you?' (Cole Porter). There will be tons of versions on iTunes or the like so it might be worth having a listen.
  • we're having tim mcgraw and faith hill - it's your love. it's a beutiful song.
  • We're having Amazed by Lonestar coz the words are lovely



    "Everytime our eyes meet

    This feeling inside me

    Is almost more than I can take

    Baby when you touch me

    I can feel how much you love me

    And it just blows me away

    I've never been this close to anyone or anything

    I can hear your thoughts

    I can see your dreams



    I don't know how you what you do

    I'm so in love with you, it just keeps getting better

    I wanna spend the rest of my life with you by my side

    Forever and ever

    Every little thing that you do

    Baby I'm amazed by you" etc etc



    Also another lovely song we're having as we leave the church is Bryan Adams and Barbara Streisand - Ive finally found as it is always a lovely song



    hope this helps

    Hi

    I started this topic a week or so ago under General Chat. There are lots of ideas that have been posted on there. Hope that is of some extra help girls.

  • My h2b and I have been looking at first dance songs ourselves and we thought that some of the savage garden tracks are good. In particular, 'I Knew I Loved You'

  • i want to have josh groban " when you say you love me" as the first dance but h2b isnt quite sure. it gives me the goose bumps.i just wish you could hear it, this is the first verse



    like the sound of silence calling

    i hear your voice and suddenly im falling

    lost in a dream

    like the echoes of our souls are meeting

    you say those words ,

    my heart stops beating

    i wonder what it means

    what could it be that comes over me

    at times i cant move

    at times i can hardly breathe.



    chorus



    when you say you love me

    the world goes still so still inside and

    when you say you love me

    for a moment, theres no one else alive

    hi

    we get married in april and don`t have a particular song and we weren`t having a first dance but dug out an old album yestaerday and found the perfect song and now we are having a first dance!



    every day i love you by boyzone



    words are perfect;



    i don`t know but i believe

    that some things are meant to be

    and that you`ll make a better me

    every day i love you



    i never thought that dreams came true

    but you`ve shown me that they do

    ..................................



    i believe that destiny is out of our control

    and you`ve never lived until you`ve loved

    with all your heart and soul



    then there`s a bit where they say;



    if i asked would you say yes

    together we`re the very best

    i know that i am truly blessed

    every day i love you



    aw bless us !!!



  • Hi there,



    did anyone doubt you would make it? how about 'your sstill the one' by shania twain (dont know how to spell it but you know who i mean!) happy song hunting!xx
  • The song H2B and i would like is so high by John Legend, the words are:



    Baby since the day you came into my life

    You made me realize that we were born to fly

    You showed me everyday new possibilities

    You proved my fantasies of love could really be

    Let's go to a place only lovers go

    To a spot that we've never known

    To the top of a cloud were floatin awayyyyyy...



    Ooh this feels so crazy, hoh this love is blazing

    Baby we're so high, walking on cloud nine

    You got me up so high

    So High

    My shoes are scraping the sky

    So High

    You got me up so high

    Oh-hoh

    My shoes are scraping the sky



    Maybe later we could go up to the moon

    Or sail among the stars before the night is through

    And when morning comes we'll see the sun is not so far

    And we can't get much closer to God then where we are

    We will go to a place only lovers go

    To a spot that we've never known

    To the top of the clouds were floatin awayyyyyyy...



    I just hope we can fnd someone to play it in Las Vegas
  • Saint-Bertie - we are having better together too!! It so sums us up - we are not especially romantic or soppy and we have been thru some crappy times but saying despite all that, I still want you there and even at the worst, its better than not having each other!! I think its a 'real' romance song because it does say how wonderful it is all the time but it says I love you and want this enough to know we will go thru crap but thats ok and its better together!!!
  • Hiya

    I really like 'Last Man Standing' by Lucie Silvas - probably won't have it as our first dance but my h2b played it in the background when he proposed!



    Words are:



    When I feel everything in my life's a mess

    And I can't lift my head up above the rest

    When all I touch I csn't hold on to

    Then I cover my eyes and try to picture you

    'Cause your belief in me's so strong

    I won't give in, I will carry on - cos I know you're the one



    When the storm has broken you'll be waiting

    When the big wave crashes you'll be swimming

    When the war is over, you'll be waving the flag

    I know you'll be last man standing with me



    Etc etc - the rest of the verses are really lovely too, I like it cos it's like 'no matter what happens we'll be together and stick by eachother.' Is a bit different too.



    Have a listen and let me know what you think!
  • Know what you mean Vickie! Mind you - h2b not sure how to dance to it so going to get someone to choreograph a dance and learn it!! lol should be interesting!
  • we're having 'let's saty together' by Al Green, not only because the words are perfect but because my h2b proposed to me with this song playing in the background so it means a lot to us.



    xx
  • Hiya



    We are having Endless Love, Mariah and Luther version.



    Pink26

  • We are having lost in space by lighthouse family
  • Hi there,

    We are having Time of your life by Green Day. The words are so lovely and the song lasts just under two mins so its great if you are not good dancers!!

  • i'm also having amazed by lonestar for our first dance. I went to a wedding fayre at the weekend and they played my song on the catwalk. People looked at me really oddly when i was prancing about. But who cares. I love that song and i think the words are fantastic.

  • I read peoples responses to a similar topic about what they were having for their music choices. Someone suggested eva cassidy, someone else suggested an instrumental from romeo and juliet soundtrack - I then went onto ebay and got the romeo and juliet soundtrack for £1 and an eva cassidy albulm for £2.99 - I can now listen to them myself and make up my mind without having spent £20 on two cd's!!

    Can i suggest "warm Love" by Van Morrison - i love this song!



    The words are



    Look at the ivy on the cold clinging wall

    Look at the flowers and the green grass so tall

    Its not a matter of when push comes to shove

    Its just an hour on the wings of a dove



    I dig it when youre fancy dressed up in lace

    I dig it when you have a smile on your face


    This inspirations got to be on the flow

    This invitations got to see it and know



    Its just warm love

    Its just warm love

    And its everpresent everywhere

    And its everpresent everywhere

    That warm love



    To the country Im going

    Lay and laugh in the sun

    You can bring, bring your guitar along

    Well sing some songs, well have some fun



    The sky is crying and its time to go home

    And we shall hurry to the car from the foam

    Sit by the fire and dry out our wet clothes

    Its raining outside from the skies up above



    Inside its warm love

    Inside its warm love

    And its everpresent everywhere

    And its everpresent everywhere

    Warm love

    Warm love



    What perfect lyrics for a wedding!





  • Has anyone heard this by Ronan Keating, its lovely... we are thinking about it, we were thinking about amazed by lonestar... dont have a song as h2b doesnt dance so will be our very first :\)





    This I promise you



    My love, here I stand before you

    I am yours now

    From this moment on

    Take my hand

    Only you can stop me shaking

    We'll share forever

    This I promise you



    And when I look in your eyes

    All of my life feels before me

    And I'm not running anymore

    Cause I already know I'm home

    With every beat of my heart

    I give you my love completely

    My darling, this I promise you



    My love, I can feel your heartbeat

    As we dance now

    Closer than before

    Don't let go

    Don't let go

    Cause I can almost cry now

    This is forever

    I make this vow to you



    And when I look in your eyes

    All of my life feels before me

    And I'm not running anymore

    Cause I already know I'm home

    With every beat of my heart

    I give you my love completely

    My darling, this I promise you

    My darling, this I promise you

    This I promise you, oh I promise you, promise you

    This I promise you

    we are having amazed by lonstar and nothings gonna stop us now by jefferson starship! unbeliveable by craig david is a lovely song to x

    We have absolutely no idea. We don't want cheese but that's a sfar as we've got. I really love the song from moulin rouge that goes.."come what may, come what may, I will love you until my dying day" but it could be really very tricky to dance to.



    one that surprised me was Elvis Presley - the wonder of you. It was on the juke box in our pub the other day. It's not too slow, or too cheesey (aka wind beneath my wings - sorry if you're having this but it not us at all) and the words ar ereally nice.



    When no-one else can understand me

    When everything i do is wrong

    you give me hope and consolation

    you give me strength to carry on

    You're always there, to lend a hand

    in everything I do...that's the wonder,

    The wonder of you.

  • my first dance song is all i ask of you from phantom of the opera it basically says all i need is for you to be true and love me another song i love is snow patrol chasing cars.
  • Ours was Always, by Atlantic Star, which I also walked down the aisle to!

    Girl, you are to me,

    All that a woman should be

    And I dedicate my life to you always...



    And we both know,

    That our love will grow

    And I will love you so for always



    Come with me my sweet

    Let's go make a family



    (Can't remember the rest, but you get the drift...!)
  • I know it's cheesy but we're having When You Say Nothing At All by Ronan Keating. We both really like it and reminds us of some lovely nights we've had together! :\)
