Music is very important to both my FH and me. It’s part of what brought us together (an interest in the same Canadian indie singer), and we spent a lot of time sharing our collections and introducing each other to our favorite unknown artists.
I like all of the songs on the CD, but one that really stood out for me was “That, For Me, Is You.”
“This,” I thought, “is going to be our first dance song if we ever get married.”
Of course, I didn’t share that information with him right away…it was a little too early on in the proceedings! But I kept that thought in the back of my mind until the appropriate moment. When I did bring it up, he agreed!
It was very important to me that our first dance song be something special. I didn’t want anything too trendy or overused (see “Amazed” by Lonestar, “From this Moment on” by Shania Twain, etc.). And it drives me crazy when first dance songs have inappropriate lyrics (“Every Breath You Take,” anyone?). I love our song…it’s beautiful, it’s unique, and it perfectly expresses how we feel:
What’s it like
when all your dreams come true?
When your life
is given something new
and you begin to live the way you’ve always wanted to?
That, for me, is you.
If you’re already married, did you have a first dance song? What was it? And if you’re planning a wedding, have you chosen one yet? Share!
