10 (not so over done) wedding song ideas for your first dance

While planning my wedding I found choosing a wedding song to be quite a challenge. Maybe my fiance and I were over thinking it, but we were on a mission to find the perfect first dance song. After days of searching google and pinterest and listening to every possibility on itunes, we finally found it...'God Gave Me You' by Blake Shelton.

Funny story, after all that fuss, turns out I didn't even totally enjoy our first dance! Don't get me wrong, I loved the chance to just "be" with my new husband, but overall it felt a little awkward with all our wedding guests just staring at us as we twirled around. Don't worry though, searching for the perfect wedding song was well worth our stress. I absolutely love when our first dance song randomly comes on the radio, it always catches me off guard and I can't help but instantly be taken back to our very special day. And yes, I usually tear up a bit just thinking about our wedding and the beautiful life we have created as a married couple. So, even if you aren't the traditional type or don't think you'll enjoy the first dance, I still highly recommend choosing a wedding song.

I love “A Thousand Years”, but my favourite is “A Thousand Years Part 2” ft. Steve Kazee, I just think it’s that much more beautiful having both voices. My other favourite is “One and Only” by Adele- that might be my straight up favourite wedding song. I’ve only heard it at one wedding, so not that over played in my experience either. =] Otherwise, I love the list!
