    Well h2b and I love every breath you take by the police. Have always loved it and thought it would be nice as our first dance song but after listening to it I don't know whether it would be a song you could 'slow dance' to lol. Opinions please :-)

    I wouldn't worry about having slow music, i dont think its that fast, if its the perfect song for both of you then thats all that matters x

    The only thing about that song, which is not a widely know fact but my H2B is a geek with pop music, is that it is actually a stalker singing about the woman he is stalking. It's one of those songs that is hugely popular as a first dance but actually the content is not so good. The same goes with "I will always love you", it's actually a song about someone who has been dumped but still loves her ex. The question is will any of your guests know the real meaning of the song.

    We are torn between that song and seals kiss from a rose. Has that got a meaning too/ also one to avoid? Lol x

    i think either song works perfectly for a first dance, i don't think it really matters what the real lyrics mean if its a song you both like :) xx

    We both wanted Rudamental - Powerless as our first dance as it's meaninful to us both but we have no clue how we could dance to that so will probably pick something different x

    We've had this problem and really struggled to find a song that fitted us as a couple. We've now settled on John Legend, All of me. We've chosen this because every single word applies to us. Our relationship hasn't been perfect and I have a sharp and unpredictable mouth. But h2b loves me even when I'm being a total bitch lol. I also didn't want any of the usual cliche songs, not that they're not good, classic songs, I'm just not a fan :) xx

    ElinorClaire nothing wrong with being a geek lol!! I'm a bit of an 80's freak and when I saw the title of the song also thought the same thing!!!!

    You pick whatever song has meaning to you.It doesn't matter what the songs actual meaning is as long as it's not too extreme lol.People won't be thinking into your song either,they'll just be watching the happy couple & prob thinking "this song is great".My partner & I both love UB40s,Can't help falling in love with you.But since I love Elvis too & he sang it first we've decided this is the more romantic choice.We're young enough too & I've had a few raised eyes but it's what we want.I don't care how old it is :)

    I also agree about not bothering about what the real meaning of songs are, loads of people have songs like ''I will always love you'' or a number of bon jovi songs, which are all about being dumped.... but if it's a song you love and means something to you as a couple, then who cares. If anyone at your wedding decides to point out the song is actually about a woman being stalked then you can slap them

    ... or even better turn very seriously and say ''that's why it means something to us, we stalked each other for years, it wasn't until we realised we were both doing it that we got together''

    I am having Lonestar - Amazed as it just sums us up perfectly and is easy to dance slowly to as he cant dance! Otherwise it would be ronan Keating - This i promise you, as its very wedding and I just love it!

    In terms of tempo to dance to its fine but the song lyrics are about stalking.
