So what was your first dance as DH and DW?

All this talk about weddings…LOL – the first song we chose to dance together as husband/wife was Tim McGraw and Faith Hill’s “It’s Your Love” –

My parents had “Moon River” (I guess back then you didn’t have a significant song you chose, just what was the popular slow dance song at the time? That’s what my dad said when I asked “uh, why?” lol!)

My sister had a song by Alabama I can’t remember the title to, but remember that I loved it…forever’s as far as I’ll go, I think…beautiful song!

We danced to Louis Armstrong, “What a Wonderful World.” :slight_smile: We felt we had so much to look forward to and the world could not look more wonderful and full of promise to us!
Had to post the lyrics…

I see trees of green… red roses too
I see ’em bloom… for me and for you
And I think to myself… what a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue… clouds of white
Bright blessed days…dark sacred nights
And I think to myself …what a wonderful world.

The colors of a rainbow…so pretty …in the sky
Are also on the faces…of people …going by
I see friends shaking hands…sayin’… how do you do
They’re really sayin’…i love you.

I hear babies cry… I watch them grow
They’ll learn much more…than I’ll never know
And I think to myself …what a wonderful world

The colors of a rainbow…so pretty …in the sky
Are there on the faces…of people …going by
I see friends shaking hands…sayin’… how do you do
They’re really sayin’…spoken(I …love…you).

I hear babies cry… I watch them grow
(you know their gonna learn
A whole lot more than I’ll never know)
And I think to myself …what a wonderful world
Yes I think to myself …what a wonderful world.

Can I have this Dance? by Anne Murray

Lady
by Kenny Rogers

we had a small reception at home no dancing. DH used to dance while we were dating but after marriage he had a lobotomy and forgot how to dance, I don’t think we have ever danced together since high school. Brown-eyed girl was “our song”.

Dancing at Weddings was not something either one of us grew up with so, we didn’t. Not only that by dh has an artificial leg so I don’t think he would have been comfortable dancing way back when. We danced at one of his cousins sons weddings though. Any other Wedding we have gone to that had a dance I danced with one of my daughters.

“In My Life” John Lenon

There are places I’ll remember
All my life though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places have their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I’ve loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new
Though I know I’ll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more

Though I know I’ll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more
In my life I love you more

"When You Say Nothing At All"
By Keith Whitley

Even though we got married in 2000, we danced our first dance to Only You by the Platters.

John

“Hotel California” by the Eagles. :smiley:

I was never much of a dancer, since I am used to providing the music for dancing (the old-fashioned ballroom type) as a violinist leading an orchestra. Our reception was a big outdoors one in my parents yard, so we really didn’t set up for dancing at the reception. Any time DH is in the mood to dance, though, he turns the CD player on to whatever classical music is in it and he whirls me around. It’s getting a little more difficult, since now he is swinging 2 of us around!

If I had to pick one , I would love it to be Tracy Byrd’s “Keeper Of The Stars”

I just realized we have been together for nearly 13 years and have never once danced together in that time.

:frowning: you’ve got to dance! Try in the living room, with the kids all around…they’ll love it!

‘Valentine’

Martina McBride

We didn’t have a formal reception, just a party with a few friends. In fact, the band I was in at the time ended up playing a set … playing bass, lead vocals and dancing simultaneously just doesn’t work.

I have subsequently made several attempts to teach my DW to two-step, with very limitted results. :stuck_out_tongue:

We danced to Chicago’s “Inspiration”.

Sort of related to this topic. At my niece’s bridal shower I gave, we played one shower game. All of the guests wrote down the song she danced to (or planned to dance to in the case of the non-marrieds). I collected them. I then read each song and the guests wrote down who they thought the song went with. The one with the most correct won a prize. This was one of the few shower games that most guests seemed to really enjoy; it was interesting to hear the range of songs.

We danced to Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World” too. It has such wonderful staying power, and we didn’t want to choose a song that we might possibly find cheesy for our 50th (God willing of course) anniversary.

We chose the “hey, everybody! we’re happy & we’re having fun at our reception!” route by doing a modified swing to “Big, Big Love” by k.d.lang & the Reclines. Wheeeee!:dancing:

[font=Arial][size=1]Oh can’t you feel my love a’growin
Can’t you feel it
Ain’t it showin
Oh you must be knowin
I got a big big love
It’s not the type to be concealing
It’s the type to be revealing
Oh, you must be feeling
I got a big big love
I think it’s time we done some walkin
I think it’s time we done some talkin
Well there’s a great big moon above
Honey, i got a big big love
This is not infatuation
It’s true love’s sensation
It’s not my imagination
I got a big big love
For you
It’s time we done some walkin
I think it’s time we done some talkin
Well
There’s a great big moon above honey
And i got a big big love
This is not infatuation
It’s true love sensation
It’s not my imagination
I got big big love
It’s not the type to be concealing
It’s the type to be revealing
Oh you must be feeling
I got a big big love
I got a big big love
I got a big big love
I got a big big love for you

That was ours! :slight_smile: Dh heard it on the radio one day and he found it and played it for me. We knew it was perfect for us. :heart:

“Keeper of the Stars” lyrics by Tracey Byrd:
It was no accident me finding you
Someone had a hand in it
Long before we ever knew
Now I just can’t believe you’re in my life
Heaven’s smilin’ down on me
As I look at you tonight

I tip my hat to the keeper of the stars
He sure knew what he was doin’
When he joined these two hearts
I hold everything
When I hold you in my arms
I’ve got all I’ll ever need
Thanks to the keeper of the stars

Soft moonlight on your face oh how you shine
It takes my breath away
Just to look into your eyes
I know I don’t deserve a treasure like you
There really are no words
To show my gratitude

So I tip my hat to the keeper of the stars
He sure knew what he was doin’
When he joined these two hearts
I hold everything
When I hold you in my arms
I’ve got all I’ll ever need
Thanks to the keeper of the stars

It was no accident me finding you
Someone had a hand in it
Long before we ever knew
