Being Us….

A lot of people have ideas about their wedding day before they get engaged, and I must admit I had too.

As we had been together for 8 years when we got engaged, certain ideas had already crossed my mind and there has been one area which Mr C and I have discussed probably for about 4/5 years (out of 8 years together).

We talk about it most days.

For me, one of the most important parts of the day (oh after ceremony of course… maybe)… so much so that my dress decisions are being affected by it.

First Dance…..

Now I would quite like to learn some actual 'dance moves' Maybe Rock ‘n’ Roll classes, maybe Rumba, maybe Tango….

He had mentioned previously thay maybe we could go to a dance class
(I took this as YES WE CAN) but now he has changed his mind

And the other VERY IMPORTANT question is:
What will we have has as our first dance? (Also Ceremony Music has recently fallen into this discussion – apparently I am not allowed MJ here either…. Grrr)

Now 90% of the time the songs Mr C mentions are a joke, 10% actual real suggestions. Mr C has a habit of doing this where you have to work out 'what is Sarcasm, what is geniune'... I love this about him... and now I can nearly tell most of the time.... but some of the 10% actual real suggestions sometimes seem like a joke.

We spend hours playing on spotify, pick a song, dance around the room to it and then change our mind.

And I absolutely love this! It is currently my favourite time... sat there together in the evening, drinking wine, singing and dancing to songs that bring back all kinds of memories from the past 8 years.

Despite having quite different music tastes (in general) BUT you having been together for quite a while, there is definately more than ONE song….

And so, the more we play on spotify, the more the list grows, and so I think we may have music covered for most of the day. (yes it is a whole year away, I know, not very important to some this is what staying in does...can't go out to party? do it indoors)

Yet still no budging on the dance class or MJ for entrance/music.....

(NB. We met whilst doing a Theatre and Performance degree… just in case you weren’t sure)


  1. Aw, bless you! Followed you here from RMW after the MJ comment. Honest, me and S squabbled non stop about every single song on our playlist (that's 6 hours of music right there)... just keep on trying him on different stuff you love, he's bound to give in eventually. Have you tried Hi-Fi Weddings site for inspiration?


  2. I just squealed... First comment, and from you... pretty cool beans :)

    We are like a venn diagram (is that right?) I am on one side with pop tastic cheese, he is on the other side with reggae, ska and folk... and somewhere in the middle we meet... I love sitting and playing on spotify though... its reminds us of songs we had forgotten about :)
