Wow, another Friday! Time flies when you’re working and having fun, right? We asked you to share your favorite romantic song, or your first dance song. We shared our first dance song, Carried Away by George Strait. Some of our other favorites played at our wedding are When You Say Nothing At All (I prefer the Keith Whitley version over Allison Kraus), Save the Best for Last by Vanessa Williams, Can’t Help Falling in Love by Elvis, and Wonderful Tonight by Eric Clapton.
Though not love songs, every wedding needs a little fun and humor, so Another One Bites the Dust by Queen and Paradise by the Dashboard Lights by Meatloaf are wedding essentials, in my book. At Ben’s brother’s wedding in December, I requested Paradise by the Dashboard Lights. People we dancing up a storm, including Ben, and then Paradise came on and everyone except Ben cleared the floor. I was headed out of the room, but I heard the song and looked to the dance floor to see Ben, all alone, dancing. A good wife can’t leave her man hanging, right? So, I started dancing with him and we gave the entire wedding reception a 9 minute show. True story.
Oh, and if you’re ever in Minneapolis, go to The Shout House and request Paradise (or any other song). My sisters, cousin and I had to sing every word if they were going to play it, so we did. It’s a blast.
That’s enough embarrassment for one day, let’s get down to business. The winner of one customized Ello There wedding poster is…
number 27, Alicia. She and her hubby danced to Josh Kelley’s “Home to Me”.
P.S. Everyone thought Ben had to be drunk to dance like such a fool, but he had one sip of champagne, the rest is all Ben.
P.P.S. I don’t know if you can view the video because it is through Facebook, but I shared it on our wall. If you can, I’m sorry. If you can’t, you’re lucky. Ha. I would also like to state that I was a bridesmaid and had a pretty dress, but I switched to the only other clothes I had with, hence the jeans and button down shirt.
P.P.P.S. We are well aware that we are terrible/dorky/uncoördinated dancers. I firmly believe the wedding party can dance like fools, but still look cool.
