The All Important First Dance Song...

We owe our music selections to our DJ pretty soon (like yesterday) and we cannot decide on a first dance song! (Among other things :) ) I feel like there is SO much pressure for this song to be perfect -

Right now my front runner is 'You are the Best Thing' by Ray LaMontagne.

We both like 'Into the Mystic' by Van Morrison, but I'm concerned its overdone.

Also in the running:
'We are Man and Wife' by Michelle Featherstone
'The Way I Am' by Ingrid Michaelson
'By the Way they Dance' by Jump Little Children
and 'Look After You' by The Fray

I must be forgetting some great ones - what will your first dance be to?

we did "better together" by jack johnson. we picked it b/c jack reminds us of our trip to new zealand 2 1/2 years ago since he's so popular there. after i picked it, we found out that 2 years ago it was THE first dance song. oh well, we kept it!

These are all great. Ours is going to be The book of Love by Peter Gabriel.

Good Afternoon!

My name is E. Walter Smith and I have released a wedding music project titled,
Wedding Day! Precious Moments.

It is my hope that after you have read the reviews and listened to the
music that you will want my music for your wedding.

Please allow me to escort you to http://www.TheLittleGirlSong.com
where you will hear about the magical relationship between a father
and his Little Girl. The perfect father daughter dance song, Little Girl
was added to the syndicated radio show, Inspirations Across America,
which airs in over 100 markets. Recently, The New York Time's
About.com added Little Girl to their Best Wedding Songs list.
To read the press releases and what organizations and celebrities
that endorse my song, please visit http://www.TheLittleGirlSong.com/BestWeddingSong.pdf

Although a Pop/R&B wedding song, I Do, is endorsed by the
United States Pastor’s Association for use in spiritual weddings.
(Ask any bride how hard it is to get a secular song approved by
their pastor and you’ll quickly see the value of this endorsement!)
To hear a snippet of I DO http://www.ewaltersmith.com/Ewaltersmith/ido.html

The First Dance is the most important dance of a bride and groom's life!
As the music plays they realize their whole life has been lived to enjoy in
this special moment. http://www.myspace.com/ewaltersmith (Click on First Dance)

We Married is ‘rockin’ receptions all over the world and everybody is doing a
new dance called The Bride Slide! http://www.WeMarried.org (Look out for
The Wizard’s re-mix of We Married in July ’09)
