‘Everlong’ by Foo Fighters.
“We went with the acoustic version of ‘Everlong.’ We liked the lyrics and love the song, so it was a good choice for us.”
‘You Send Me’ by Sam Cooke.
“We love the old-school song ‘You Send Me’ by Sam Cooke. Totally our style and preferred era. We wanted to do a small choreographed dance, and we loved a particular line in the song. My husband got down on one knee and then I did a twirl as part of it. It’s a great classic song and a lovely memory.”
‘Son of a Preacher’ by Dusty Springfield.
"Chose it because I married the son of a preacher…"
‘Mirrors’ by Justin Timberlake and ‘The Way You Look Tonight’ by Frank Sinatra.
“Ours was supposed to be ‘Mirrors.’ Then as we got up for the first dance, our band said they didn’t know the song. So, we had ‘The Way You Look Tonight.' On the way to our room after the reception, my new husband and I danced to our proper song in the moonlight by the water.”
