I Wanna Spend My Forever, Forever Like That
Recently I attended the wedding of family member on my wife’s side who my wife grew up babysitting. She’s a lovely young woman and married an awesome young man. The song they chose to dance to was Ben Rector’s Forever Like That. This immediately brought a huge smile to my face, because it is not a very common song. However, my wife and I also chose this to be our wedding song.
How Do You Choose Your Wedding Song?
This got me thinking about wedding songs or first dance songs. A lot goes in to choosing a wedding song. This is going to be the one song that you and your significant other relate to one of the happiest moments of your life for the rest of eternity. First, you want a song that you can dance to. Second, you want a song that is meaningful, for one reason or another. And finally, you want a song that will stand the test of time. (Bonus points for a song that is known but not too well known.) We felt like Ben Rector’s song “Forever Like That” checked off all of the boxes for us.
ONE THING I LEARNED TODAY:
My wife actually trusted in me to choose our wedding song. She wanted to be surprised. I think I did a damn fine job if I do say so myself. (Little known fact, I was a radio DJ for Wake Forest Radio back in my college days). But the cool thing is, this song actually comes on my Pandora or Spotify channels on occasion, and it brings a smile to my face. It brings me to an amazingly happy time in my life with an amazing woman. I would love to hear about what your wedding songs are and how you came to choose them.
