When it comes to planning this wedding- I am finding it funny the things I focus on.
I haven't even tried on a single dress yet- BUT have the photographer locked in.
Don't have a caterer, but the band is all signed up and ready to go!
and so, I'm not surprised that now my focus is on our first dance song.
Over the past several weeks- I've given pandora and spotify a real workout.
I've googled lyrics.
I've ruled out songs (even my favorites) because they don't quite feel right.
anyone that knows me shouldn't be surprised by this.
I am the kid that in jr high (and high school) would spend HOURS upon hours making mix tapes for people I cared about. Making sure the songs said what I needed to say. Making sure they were placed in the right order to perfectly compliment each other. I'd tediously clip words/pictures from magazines and make a collage for the front case- given whoever the tape was intended for a taste of what was to come.
so now here I am.
trying to choose a song for what may be the most special dance.
and it means so much to me.
for awhile I was stuck on "the Best Thing"- Ray Lamontange because I really feel for Jeff what Ray sings.
but now I feel like it is overdone.
and I don't necessarily need to be SUPER original- like, it is the first time all of my guests have ever heard this song played before as a first dance song....
because that isn't what it is about, but I really really really REALLY want the song to fit us.
and without being too cheesy (although my friends know that I am in fact a huge cheeseball and often make retching noises when I talk about Jeff or when they see his name in my phone as 'Jeff my Love'-- can I just say though that WAS not my doing? -- no? ok)
I love this guy.
like, I'm happy to see him all the time, still find him hilarious, still get swoony around him.
he brings out the best in me.
he keeps me grounded with how laid back he is.
his laugh is infections and I adore it.
we are a goofy, lovey, dorky couple.
SO where is the song that conveys this?
I'll happily take suggestions.
But for now, my search continues!
