Oh that most important of decisions, your first dance song! Months away though it may be, selecting the appropriate tune has me up at night. See my fiance and I have quite varied taste in music and selecting the song sets such a tone for the evening. If I choose too sappy my mother may never recover, too cheesy and guests will be put off the hors d’oeuvres! So I’ve compiled a list of Vintage Classic’s and Indie Favorites to help you all brainstorm at home. Any suggestions would be much appreciated, but for me, just say no to Butterfly Kisses.

Vintage Classic Love Songs

A Kiss to Build a Dream On – Louis Armstrong

I Can’t Give You Anything But Love – Ella Fitzgerald

S’Wonderful – Diana Krall

Wink & A Smile – Harry Conick Jr.

Side by Side – Puppini Sisters (Check these gals out, they’re amazing!)

 The Way You Look Tonight – Tony Bennet

How Deep is the Ocean – Billie Holiday

Indie Favorites 

Bright Eyes – First Day of My Life

Cat Power – Sea of Love (is the Juno connection still too recent?)

Band of Horses – No Ones Gonna Love You More Than I Do

Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs – Maps

Des’Ree – Kissing You (Romeo & Juliet showstopper)

Ben Folds – Luckiest

The White Stripes – We’re Gonna Be Friends

Iron & Wine – Such Great Heights

If I had my druthers my fiance and I would do the Charleston then break out into THIS!
