First Dance Song?

smcmsmcm Posts: 164
I'm getting married 4 weeks today and we always said as we didnt have a song that was 'ours' we wouldn't have a first dance - however, I'm now thinking that I'f like to have a first dance song which could then become 'ours' but have no idea where to start! Does anybody have any good ideas they can give me and what are you all having as your song if you're having a first dance???


  • We don't have an "our" song either. We've chosen Lets Stay Together by Al Green (on Pulp Fiction CD). The words are lovely (I'm, I'm so in love with you....), its a bit funky and not too soppy. It just the right speed for twirling in a wedding dress without getting caught up. We've only 2 weeks to go, can't wait!

    i'd like something nice but not really 'traditional' as such so was thinking maybe chasing cars by snow patrol or gravity by enbrace but nothing is really screaming 'our' song at me!

    First time (ever I saw your face) by Journey South is lovely, and the best version by far.

    We are having Always by Atlantic Starr. Such perfect words.

    I also love Truly Madly Deeply by Savage Garden and Heaven by DJ Sammy (candlelight version)

    Or you could choose something older and more rat packy like 'Just the way you look tonight'. Have you tried doing a search on first dances on this site as i know there have been loads of ideas put around|!!
