Wedding season is upon us and I just adore all that dressing up and eating steak and salmon every weekend and celebrating these milestones with y’all but GOOD LORD if I have to sit through one more first dance to Etta James’ classic ‘At Last’, I’m gonna lose it (if you live north of Temagami, your version of this song is ‘still the one’ by Shania). Your first song is HUGE, it should be a reflection of who you are as a couple and you can’t be 28 years old spinning around to a song whose chief lyric is ‘at last my love has come along’. If you’re 45 and getting married, then you can use that song but otherwise y’all gotta diversify cause right now you’re running a 8/10 ratio with that legendary ballad and frankly, you’re ruining it for the rest of us
Anyhoo, here’s my list of more unconventional wedding songs to choose from, it includes all my favorites (except for one I’m saving for myself) to twirl around a rented dance floor to. Also, the Santo + Jonny song would be a positively DREAMY choice to walk down the aisle to, just sayin. Someone take me up on that, please.
