Don’t Forget to Learn How to Slow Dance First

I don’t really blog about music too often, so today’s post is about the bride and groom’s first dance song selection.  This song is completely unique to each couple; many will dance to “their” song, others will scour playlists the find The Perfect Song.  I was torn between two songs for our dance, “Falling Slowly” by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova, and “The One I Love” by David Gray.  Let’s be honest.  I chose the former because it seemed a little bit easier to dance to and I don’t know how to slow dance.  Talk about an awkward moment for me.  We were straight out of a junior high dance. Wait, this isn’t about me, is it?
