First Dance Stumbles.

In case you haven’t noticed, I am getting freakishly excited about the wedding. I am pathetic… Pathetically excited.

Like that puppy that wees on the floor when you get home. That is me. Without the weeing.

I am absolutely stoked for every moment of the rest of everything that is coming. Except one.

The One.

That’s it.

You’re right.

The first dance.

I can’t dance.

Oh I can break it down. I can make the room hot and happening with my moooves but a nice little dance with the new Hubs is… put lightly, scaring the crap out of me.

The Fi can’t dance either. He doesn’t really want to learn either. So. There’s us, in my minds eye, stepping on each others toes and looking absolutely ridiculous. ehm. Lame.

In any case.

We have a lovely song. *if you click there you can watch their youtube video of the song* It’s so beautiful and the lyrics are very special to both of us:

Dance With You

sittin’ on the beach
the island king of love
deep in Fijian seas
deep in some blissful dream
where the goddess finally sleeps
in the lap of her lover
subdued in all her rage
and I am aglow with the taste
of the demons driven out
and happily replaced
with the presence of real love
the only one who saves

I wanna dance with you
I see a world where people live and die with grace
the karmic ocean dried up and leave no trace
I wanna dance with you
I see a sky full of the stars that change our minds
and lead us back to a world we would not face

the stillness in your eyes
convinces me that I
I don’t know a thing
and I been around the world and I’ve
tasted all the wines
a half a billion times
came sickened to your shores
you show me what this life is for

I wanna dance with you
I see a world where people live and die with grace
the karmic ocean dried up and leave no trace
I wanna dance with you
I see a sky full of the stars that change our minds
and lead us back to a world we would not face

in this altered state
full of so much pain and rage
you know we got to find a way to let it go

sittin’ on the beach
the island king of love
deep in Fijian seas
deep in the heart of it all
where the goddess finally sleeps
after eons of war and lifetimes
she smilin’ and free, nothin’ left
but a cracking voice and a song,

I wanna dance with you
I see a world where people live and die with grace
the karmic ocean dried up and leave no trace
I wanna dance with you
I see a sky full of the stars that change our minds
and lead us back to a world we would not face
we would not face.

—Live—

I do suppose that the beauty of the song will over ride our pitiful performance. *right* And if not there is still hope in a magical dancing fairy *right*

There goes the puppy again. *sigh*

    That was my least favorite part of my wedding as well…I dont know why…maybe because everyone was watching…again…and I was afraid I would somehow manage to trip. Our wedding song was so darn long too.

    Exactly! I was also worried ours would be too long. But I have a few couples lined up to join us after the first refrain. Hopefully we can get over the whole “we’re centre of attention” panic and enjoy the last half of our dance.

    Don’t worry too much about the dance. Everyone will be too swept up in the love to be judging your style.

    You’ll do great. It will be a great moment. Everybody at your wedding loves you and don’t even notice if your steps are a little off.

    Just put your arms around each other – gaze into his eyes – move your feet a little bit and everybody will be awed by the love you share.

    So I have never been married, but like most girls, the whole thing is planned. I am hoping for a fun, bust-a-move, get crazy first dance with the man of my dreams because it will pretty much symbolize us and what we would like our life to be. Fun, exciting, and makes people smile. Then, at the end of the night, as people line up to do the rose petal, sparkler, bird seed (whatever) thing, he and I will share a slow dance just the two of us. A sweet moment alone on our day. You may want to do that…just a suggestion despite the fact that you did not ask for any. 🙂

    You all have such great advice! Thank you! It makes me feel more human to know I am not the only one who has thought about it.
