My husband and I are married through the courthouse. However, I am currently planning our Catholic wedding ceremony and reception for next year. I started wedding planning 15 months in advance and Alex thought I was crazy! Of course I had to explain to him that since we are planning a destination wedding it was best that I started planning way in advance. It has been extremely stressful. From choosing the destination location, to choosing an affordable wedding package, and to agreeing on our wedding guest list. It’s so complicated. Of course for Alex it is as simple as not having anyone there but both ourselves and both our families and he’s happy. Unfortunately it’s not that simple. I’ve been planning all the big things that I hadn’t really thought of all the little things. Those little things that are actually very important. The little things are the things that we are always going to remember and are those things that we are going to have locked in our memories and hearts forever and ever.
One of those little things that is so important is the song for our first dance. So when we got married through the courthouse we had a very simple dinner with only our family and a couple of our closest friends. We did have a first dance and I chose a song that Alex dedicated to me after we got through a very difficult time in our relationship. That song is by Meghan Trainor featuring John Legend, “Like I’m Gonna Lose You”. My question is do we have our first dance to the same song or is it ok to choose a different song?
I’ve come up with a list of songs old and new that we both love and would consider.
Let me know what you guys think.
- Endless Love—Lionel Richie and Diana Ross
- I Do It For You—Bryan Adams
- All My Life—KC and Jojo
- Tonight I Celebrate My Love For You—Roberta Flack and Peabo Bryson
- Like I’m Gonna Lose You—Meghan Trainor ft. John Legend
- All Pf Me—John Legend
- Thinking Out Loud—Ed Sheeran
- I Won’t Give Up—Jason Mraz
- You Are The Best Thing—Ray LaMontagne
- Love Never Fails—Brandon Heath
Maybe I can just create a remix of our top 5 favorite songs and make it one long first dance!
