Wedding Songs, and more...

Who said big girls don't cry? Cause we do!

It amazes me how emotional I can get over my wedding. Listening to music, the words of a song that say everything you wanted to say, is so moving. That is why I love music. It expresses something about us that no-one else can hear only when music is played.

In a wedding music is important. There are those moments where words are no use but music does the talking. There are the prelude songs, processional songs, the bride entrance song, interlude songs, recessional songs, postlude songs, first dance song, mother-son song, father-daughter song, cake cutting song, and the last dance. Yes, you may not have thought about this before but last night we did.

I know what song will be the bride entrance song because it is one that moves me. See that is exactly what music does. It moves us. Here are some of the lyrics to the Rascal Flatt song, God Bless the Broken Road I will be playing at my wedding:

I think about the years I spent just passing through
I'd like to have the time I lost and give it back to you
But you just smile and take my hand
You've been there you understand
It's all part of a grander plan that is coming true

Now tell me that doesn't move you. I cry when i hear the song. We have seen Rascal Flatts in concert and we have danced to this song. It says exactly how I feel. I sing it in his ear as we dance, and it's like i hear it for the first time, everytime. The words just flow as so do the tears.

See as life pass me by, this moment seem not to be in my future and I was fine with that. And now that it is here I now this is exactly what I wish for.

The first dance, after you have promised to live your life together, the world is all yours. He holds you in his arms and you dance. I love to dance. I have always been a dancer since I was younger. Another love in my life. Dancing puts words to songs sometimes. When the music plays you move as the song plays. The first dance is that dance that says here we are, just us, me and you, we did it. Wooh, we .... did... it! I ask my fiancee what was our song. I didn't expect an answer as quick as he gave me one. See my fiancee like most guys tells me whatever you want to everything. But for the wedding he is not getting away with this. I am making him make decisions as in everything we do. Some way or another, he helps make the decisions, he doesn't know. He played the song and it was so moving. Again I cried. Because he is not the type of person who expresses himself out loud. The first time I got an I love you from him, it was like i had won a million dollars. But again like i said music. We both love music. We love the same songs. We both love to dance. And when we dance, it is like it is just us. Have you danced under the moonlight with the person you love in front of a crowd, or just alone, the two of you? I have. It makes the world stop. Just you and him, the music guiding you. As you look into each others eyes, you remember that moment you fell in love. That's the first dance. And my fiancee picked the perfect song. That's why I fell in love with him.
