First Dance and Your Song

First Dance - The First Dance is a special moment when the newly wed couple make their appearance before their friends as husband and wife and Dance to a song they carefully chose to forever represent their marriage. What was your "First Dance" like?

Did you and your betrothed have a First Dance at your wedding celebration/reception? What song was it? Did you choose a song that had special meaning to you, or just one that you felt expressed the day and your feelings for each other very well? did you practice dancing to your song before the "first dance" as a married couple? Do you still like the song you chose? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ My husband and I chose "Time in a Bottle" by Jim Croce. We liked the song, but it was not "Our Song" per se' we just thought that the lyrics had special meaning for the day. The band we had was really great, only they messed up THIS song really bad. ouch, it still hurts my ears to think of it!Here are the lyrics: If I could save time in a bottle The first thing that Id like to do Is to save every day Till eternity passes away Just to spend them with you If I could make days last forever If words could make wishes come true Id save every day like a treasure and then, Again, I would spend them with you But there never seems to be enough time To do the things you want to do Once you find them Ive looked around enough to know That youre the one I want to go Through time with If I had a box just for wishes And dreams that had never come true The box would be empty Except for the memory Of how they were answered by you But there never seems to be enough time To do the things you want to do Once you find them Ive looked around enough to know That you're the one I want to go Through time with

My wedding dance was to "Maybe I'm Amazed" by Paul McCartney. I picked it because it was the song that was playing on the radio the 1st time that my wife and I went out. I've been married 4 years now, and I am just as amazed by her now as I was before.

That is so beautiful! "I am just as amazed by her now as I was before" made my eyes well up. Your bride is a lucky woman. Thank you for replying to my discussion.

My husband and I did not have a dance at our wedding reception. But we did have a really great song played at the lighting of our unity candle. It was the song "I Do", by Paul Brandt. I still love this song very much and we have now been married for almost ten years now. In fact I have it on my fine tune player on my myspace page. And when it comes on my husband and I will dance to it in our living room and my son will dance with his sister. I put the lyrics to mine below too! Hope that you enjoy them. "I Do" by: Paul Brandt' I've seen the storm clouds in your past But rest assured 'cause you are safe At home at last I rescued you, you rescued me And we're right where we should be When we're together I know the questions in your mind But go ahead and ask me one more time You'll find the answer's still the same it won't change from day to day For worse or better Chorus: Will I promise to be your best friend And am I here until the end Can I be sure I have been waiting for you And did I say my love is true Baby I will, I am, I can, I have, I do I know the time will disappear But this love we're building on will always be here No way that this is sinking sand On this solid rock we'll stand forever Chorus: Will I promise to be your best friend And am I here until the end Can I be sure I have been waiting for you And did I say my love is true Baby I will, I am, I can, I have, I do Baby I will, I am, I can, I have Oh, I will, I am, I can, I have Baby I will, I am, I can, I have, Ido

Well that gave me a sufficient amount of goosebumps! I do not know the tune, but the lyrics are very touching in themselves. Thank-you for sharing.

our first dance was "the way you look tonight". we danced to the song while it was being sang live by our reception host/emcee.
