Polka Dot Bride Mixtape – The First Dance

Right after our last Polka Dot Bride mix-tape, I wanted to end the week with some romantic tunes to help ease you into the weekend. This time, I believed I’d tune into some of our featured bride’s initial dance alternatives. From the romantic, to the satisfied, to the various- we’ve showcased it all! Here’s a tiny inspiration for your own day- I’ve linked every song title to a version of the song, so all you have to do is click to listen!

“We danced to “Love Me Tender” by Norah Jones, in an open part of the courtyard, below a big tree, fairy lights. By that point of the night I had ditched my shoes, so it was a barefoot waltz – which for those who know me properly, know how appropriate that was! The videographer even got a excellent close up shot of my bare little toes in his highlights reel. After our waltz, and half way by means of the dancing with the rest of the guests it started to rain, but I feel that only added fuel to the fire! We all had too significantly fun busting a move with the rain sprinkling down.”

“We danced to “Bob Marley and Lauren Hill’s Turn Your Lights Down Low”, not the most usual song decision, maybe a tiny attractive but it has always been ‘our song’, considering that Shayne very first place it on a mix-CD in 2001.  We did a modified Rumba we had been operating on which didn’t go precisely to strategy but was entertaining and touching all the identical.”

“We danced to Al Green, ‘Let’s remain together’. It was the only dance of the reception – we didn’t have a dance floor due to the fact we just booked part of the restaurant.”

“We employed the lyrics from our very first dance song on the front of our invitation (We could fly, you and I, on a cloud – ‘Kissing’ by Bliss). We also incorporated ‘A journey of the heart’ throughout our stationery which are also lyrics from the identical song.”

“Our very first dance was to Jack Johnson’s ‘Better With each other’ . We did our very first dance on the deck below as our guests cheered us on from the balcony above. Never dancing prior to we amazed ourselves with our how nicely a handful of youtube dance lessons in the living area could transform into some thing extraordinary, we did dips and spins and shared a laugh as we moved around the dance floor with out tripping more than each other (significantly to the surprise and delight of our family members and pals), we had been rapidly joined by good friend and family members to dance the evening away with a little bit of some thing for every person.”

“Our very first dance was to “Chasing Cars” by Snow Patrol, and a single of the most memorable moments of the evening. We were so focused on each and every other that for a handful of minutes, it felt like we were the only two individuals in the space.”

“We danced to “Everything” by Michael Buble…it was great enjoyable but also a bit nerve-wracking – we had learnt a routine  which involved lots of lifting and twirling, and could have gone horribly wrong in lots of places…luckily it all went fine and we’re pretty positive we heard lots of ‘ooohs’ &amp ‘ahhhs’ from our family members and friends…”

“It was to ‘Arithmetic’ by Brooke Fraser, we created confident the bridal celebration, parents and so on came up pretty swiftly to take the interest off our dancing. It was actually challenging to move about in my dress.”

“We’re both huge music lovers and as such don’t have “our” song, as we have about a thousand we each adore and adore that remind us of particular moments shared, some not ideal/appropriate for a first dance. The night before we had been nevertheless um-ing and ah-ing more than the first dance song – we had a list of about 10 we both loved. But we managed to cull it down to 3 and had a tiny boogie in the lounge space to perform out which 1 suited our dance style (which is a mash up of waltzing, twirling and dips – no real structure, just going with the flow), extended story short – we ended up dancing to Maroon 5’s version of Frank Sinatra’s The Way You Look Tonight.

“We ended up dancing to the song that was to be the church entrance song – an acoustic version of “Hysteric” by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. It turned out to be the most ideal song. We had been encouraged to get up on stage for the dance and even although everyone was watching, we honestly had been totally lost in that moment”

“Nathan chose Coldplay’s ‘Til Kingdom Come and as he asked his new wife to dance following his speech and as the guitar strums began my tears started rolling  – I was a hopeless dancer but loved each and every second shuffling about the dancefloor laughing and crying collectively.”

What did you dance too or are planning to pick for your very first dance?
