The words that strike fear into the hearts of many newly married couples.
Our Perfect Wedding Guide teams have heard all of the discussions.
Do we have a song? Is it too fast? Can we dance to it? Maybe it’s too long, can we shorten it? And, perhaps the lyrics are not really appropriate for you to play in polite company.
Relax, not every couple as A song. If you do have a song, it might not be something you could do your first dance to.
Funny thing is that some of the most popular first dance songs might not be the best options… if you REALLY listen to the lyrics.
We recently talked to some Perfect Wedding Guide DJs, Wedding Planners and newly married couples for their input on the worst first dance songs. Here are some beautiful songs to stay away from:
“Every Breath You Take” by The Police –
Every breath you take
Every move you make
Every bond you break
Every step you take
I’ll be watching you
Seriously, HE’s A STALKER!!!
“I Will Always Love You” by Whitney Houston (or Dolly Parton) –
Bittersweet memories? Not even good memories?
That is all I’m taking with me
Please don’t cry
We both know I’m not what you, you need
“My Heart Will Go On” by Celine Dion
It’s from Titanic, and that didn’t end well! Enough said.
And last but not least the song that has also been used for a gazillion marriage proposal flash mob videos.
“Marry You” by Bruno Mars
We’re looking for something dumb to do? They are both absolutely shhhhhwaisted, and he tells her…
If we wake up and you want to break up
No, I won’t blame you
Take your time, listen to the words, and pick the best first dance song for the two of you.
