    Hi everyone,
    My OH and I are really struggling to choose a first dance as 'our song' isn't really appropriate, we are also not a particularly soppy couple and don't want anything too like that.

    Does anyone have any suggestions to help as this is driving me mad now?!

    Could you do a mixture of songs ?
    Would you be wanting to do a slow dance song ? Or one of the fun ones where people do dance routines ?

    I think we want a slow dance as that is the traditional thing to do, although I do like your idea of doing a mixture of songs, although that does mean I will have to pick more than 1!

    We are having "how do you like you're eggs in the morning" which is upbeat and we can actually dance to, not just shuffle.

    We are in the same position, and get married in month. I have looked on the internet for inspiration, but not getting anywhere. We will have to spend some time this weekend looking into it.

    I was talking to a friend earlier who is married and she mentioned she had no clue what 1st dance song to do at her wedding and then one day she was updating her iTunes and put the songs on shuffle mode and she has hundreds on there , after a while a song came on and it got stuck in her head even after finishing listening to the songs then a few days later she put iTunes back on and played her playlist of recently listened to and her h2b at the time came in and said " wow I loved this song and it was out the summer we met" the more they listened to it the more they loved it and got to the stage where it became the first dance song .

    So ladies you may find not actually looking may be the way you find the song lol

    what music are you into?

    is there an acoustic version of your song (What is it?)

    we are having Madness, by Muse. Not first dance music at all, but we're not having something soppy because it just isnt us x

    I've only just signed up but have already discovered a whole world! Had no idea they'd be so many people discussing this kinda thing! Has anyone actually had a live band, either a tribute act or an actual famous hired band. I'm in love with my new discovery Jack Pack, does anyone know how much a band would charge to perform?
