One of the most intimate moments at a wedding is the first dance between the new bride and groom. Even though there is a new tradition of choreographed dances, traditionally it is a love song that has meaning to the couple. Guy and I love music and have lots of songs that make us think of each other. In fact within the first few months of dating, I had already burned a whole CD of “our songs”. A lot of them were about the way we felt when we were dating, songs about falling in love not about being in love. None of them really fit us now except for one, God Bless The Broken Road by Rascal Flatts. It defines us well since we met when we were so young, both went completely separate ways, me moving all over the country, then us finding our way back to each other. My problem though, is that it has been extremely over played as a wedding song and everyone that will be there I’m sure has already been to a wedding that has played this. It also has been overplayed with us and doesn’t bring out the same emotion it once did. I really want a song that really hits us, and hits everyone there. I picture it being a very sentimental moment between us and just frankly want it to be sappy.
So my top two choices have been More Than Anyone by Gavin DeGraw or Feels Like Home by Chantal Kreviazuk. Guy doesn’t like Gavin DeGraw’s voice and thinks the other is O.K. but just isn’t the one. We’ve listened to music for hours and cannot find one we both think is it. So I am still on a mission and we have 11 days left. So I’m reaching out for some suggestions. Anything you think we might enjoy let me know in the comments section. We are looking for something not completely overplayed and possibly country.
