music and lyrics (the first dance)...


man, i loved watching this couple's choreographed first dance and the bridesmaids' rendition of beyonce's single ladies. i'm definitely not the first one to post about it, but if you haven't seen it, WATCH it now.

boone and i decided that we couldn't pull off anything choreographed (although i am obsessed with Jai Ho from the end of slumdog millionaire) because:
#1 well, it's just not us, and;
#2 we'll be so full of excitement and nerves that there's no way we'd remember it. not in a million years.
but we will being doing an impromptu first dance. here are the songs we've narrowed it down to, but we're not totally sold on any of them:

--At Last, by Beyonce
great, classic song, updated by one of my faves, PLUS it's a nod to the Prez since he and Mrs. O danced to this version at the inaugural ball
--If I could Build my Whole World Around You, by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell
wonderful duet, perfect lyrics, and it's upbeat! if you don't know this one def check it out.
--You Are the Best Thing, by Ray LeMontagne
we heard this on the radio the other day think it's just perfect i mean with lines like "you are the best thing that's ever happened to me" what more could you want?

here are the ones that didn't make the cut:
- The Luckiest, by Ben Folds

- Better Together, by Jack Johnson
- Romeo and Juliet, by Dire Straights
- My Love for You is Real, Ryan Adams
- I'm Gonna Love You, by Wilson Pickett
- True, Fine Love, by Steve Miller Band

what song would you want to/did you/will you dance to with your honey?

We danced to "When you say nothing at all" by allison krause. Of course you knew that because you were there. :)

Two that we also considered were "You and I" by Michael Buble' and "A kiss to build a dream on" by Louis Armstrong.

No matter what song you pick, anytime you hear it you will ALWAYS think of your wedding day. (I'm not promising the groom with though..hehe)
