In Anticipation of…Our First Dance

I stumbled across this link last night. It’s a website full of song suggestions for first dances at weddings.


I’ve always been attracted to dancing — ballroom/couples — but mostly as an activity (like so many others) for which to wait on you. What’s the point of dancing with anyone else…even an instructor? I’d rather learn with you, even if I’m not the world’s greatest dancer.

By now you may have figured out that I really like making everything picturesque and iconic. Guilty. I think it’s a gift for everyone. And to be honest, I’m used to people looking at me to set an example. So, I like to set a really good one. But I really hope we do get a chance to just get lost in the moment, wrapped up in each other’s arms, savoring the words, the sights, the sounds, the feelings…poised on that golden step of the archway to forever together.

I see a lot of songs in there I know. I can close my eyes and see us slowly sashaying around the floor, doing the slow-dance to some of them. I think the cool part will be our parents. Assuming both our mothers and fathers will still be alive at our wedding, how long do you think it’s been since they’ve danced with each other? Maybe we’ll help them relive their wedding.

And for our siblings and friends? Maybe we’ll get a chance to give them their first dance. Maybe we’ll even help one or two of them find a dancing partner for life. Our wedding will be a chance to bless a ton of people!

Anyway, look through that song list when you get a chance, dear. I’m sure we’ll have plenty of time to pick and plan, but it’s fun to contemplate.
