Readers Respond: What Song Played During Your First Dance as Husband and Wife?

Responses: 13


Weddings are a flurry of activity from the planning stages to the actual ceremony and reception. But regardless of how busy and hectic things get, there are some moments that will stay with you forever. Take the first dance - the song that played is one that you will never forget. Will you share "your song" and why you picked it?

Wedding songs

My fiancé and I will be dancing our first dance as husband and wife to Jim Brickman's "The Gift". We love the song "This Day" by Point of Grace...possibly for the beginning of the ceremony. I came here looking for some Christian love songs for the actual ceremony....I'm finding a lot!

What Song Played During Your First Dance

Not so much a dance song for my wonderful wife and I, as I have two left feet, but our song was Celine Dion's "If You Asked me To." Now, 20 years later, I wouldn't change a moment. I found my soulmate and if she asked me to, I would do it all over again.

"Crazy Girl" - Eli Young Band

Our song was "Crazy Girl." It was an amazing night! :)

"Soulmate" by Josh Turner

Probably going to be ours (I've gone a little overboard on the Josh Turner music in the past few months, and we're a little burnt out), but if you like or are okay with country "twang," it's such a wonderfully appropriate song. (Josh Turner is a country singer, not a Christian singer, but he's a Christian and sings a good number of Christian songs.)

New Songs

"Wrapped In Your Arms" by Fireflight or "I Promise" by Jaci Velasquez. These are great wedding songs.

Change of Plans

My husband and I had planned to dance to "Is This Love?" by Bob Marley...but the DJ forgot the CD with our song on it! So we danced to James Taylor, "Something in the Way She Moves." Meanwhile a friend ran out to the store and bought the Marley CD, so the whole wedding party danced to "our" song later. Also, my sister sang "I Will Be Here" during our ceremony. Beautiful!

Dance Lessons Helped Us Rock It!

Our wedding song was "If You Can See What I See" - love it! For our 1st dance, we choreographed Anne Murray's, "Can I Have This Dance." We took three months of dance lessons before the wedding and we rocked it!

Two Paths Become One

"Born Again" by Third Day ! It represents so much of who we are as a couple and how our paths became one.

You Light Up My Life

Our 1st Dance was to "You Light Up My Life," but Robert wrote and sung a song as I walked down the isle as a wedding gift to me" called He Who Finds A Wife." Recently recorded in Nashville TN, the song can be personalized for anyone.

When I Say I Do

Another GREAT Christian wedding song is "When I Say I Do" by Matthew West. I just found it a couple months ago and LOVE it!! My wedding song was "A Page is Turned" by Bebo Norman :)

"I will be there"- Steven Curtis Chapman

Once I heard this song for the first time, I knew it had to be the one. It was absolutely perfect.
