Tell me! What was your first dance song? What do you wish it was? Did someone have one you really liked? What music do you enjoy at weddings?

*hopefully this was the right spot to put this? Please, mods can move it if it should be relocated.

Ooh I want to know this too! When my friend who got married last year asked me for first dance ideas, I said "Boom Shake the Room".

Our song was "love is all around" by the Troggs. I knew I wanted that song before I met my husband and he didn't really care so he just went with it.

We didn't dance at our wedding, but if we were to have a bow renewal I would need "green eyes" by Coldplay to be our first dance.

Ours was a cover of "Beyond the Sea," but my husband and I were also very fond of our recessional: "You Are the Best Thing" by Ray LaMontagne.

Our first dance was to "Will You Return?" by The Avett Brothers. We danced like fools. It was great.

One of my good friends played this at her wedding: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9iaU3WAOACo

I had never heard of it sound, but I guess she heard it on the radio and thought it was perfect. I love how it reminds me of her wedding now.

We walked down the aisle to"Frosty the Snowman" (long story!), and our first dance was "That's Amore".
It was great.

Ever since I first heard it, I thought that Take Care by Beach House would be an awesome first dance song. I have also seriously considered walking down the aisle to Pitter Patter Goes My Heart, by Broken Social Scene. Now if Fred would just propose so I can make this a reality.

Our song was sweet child of mine. Yeah, the guns and roses song!

I love weddings with lots of really fast paced songs you can dance to. Our friend had a great dj who did mixups of r&b songs at their wedding and it was so fun. I don't like 70s and 80s music at weddings but that seems pretty common.

we walked down the aisle to a version of hamster on a piano (paula and jason's wedding) written by parry gripp and then the song from the venture brothers wedding episode played when it was over, but we didn't really have dancing.

Yes, yes, yes. Every time that's the playlist at a wedding I just can't make myself dance. I know they're supposed to be crowd pleasers, but I'd rather wind up with a more current top-40s playlist or even a high-energy playlist of songs I don't even know.

We didn't have an aisle to walk down, but our first dance was to Journey, "Don't Stop Believin'"

Our first dance was Book of Love by Peter Gabriel. A little slow, but beautiful.

Hahhaa, I'm such a terrible person. Our first dance was actually Book of Love, but covered by a live band at a fast tempo.

The Stars Are My Chandelier was the second song. Maybe third! Who knows!

We walked into the venue (sans proper aisle) to Open Window (The Wedding Song) By Sarah Harmer. Our recessional-ish thing was "Ill Love" by Pete and the Pirates

I'm probably wrong about everything in this post!

my attendants walked down to "baby, i love you" (ramones version) and i walked down to "wild is the wind" by nina simone. i had promised my husband that even if we had a real wedding instead of eloping like we had originally intended, he wouldn't have to dance, but i ended up ambushing him and making him dance with me (or rather i danced around him) to "and then he kissed me" by the crystals.
