    I knew that several people would have used it! I don't at all judge anyone else - the song just totally grates on me. I think I heard it at 500 weddings growing up? Same recently with doing some wedding photography, and how everyone used Ed Sheerhan for a while.

    VERY solid choices! I also outlawed "Hollaback Girl."

    We were on the tail end of attending a ton of weddings and wedding dances by the time we got married. Both of us were a bit burned out on them.

    We ended up having a morning wedding and afternoon reception and eschewed a dance altogether. We wound up contracting a string quartet that we stumbled upon during a date to play during the reception. People ate, drank and talked and have the rest of their day to do whatever they wanted.

    I'm going to my niece's wedding tomorrow. She asked for song requests. I told her if she played "Old Town Road" I was going to take back our gift and get her a ****** toaster from Savers.

    So I'm guessing that you didn't dance on the head table to Gloria Gaynor?

    Throw in YMCA and the Hokey Pokey and I'm on the same wavelength.

    My grandma had a stroke the day after our wedding and passed away four days later. We were so torn about going on our honeymoon at the time. We went and saw her at the hospital before we left as everyone told us we needed to go. We ended up cutting it short though. Celebrating getting married one day and 10 days later going to your grandma's funeral is not what we quite had in mind.

    I am so very sorry. That is just awful, and I'm sure it always makes your anniversary a bittersweet time.

    This was our first dance was this. Best part is that the whole song is under 3 mins. It's not that I don't want to dance with my wife, it's more that I didn't want a room of 200 people watching me.

    Sigh...marriage wrecks perfectly good songs. The song was good before your marriage, it will be good after your marriage, can we not dirty them with things so putrid as human matrimony?

    I can't for the life of me remember what it was - and I'll be damned if I am going to ask her!
