Country Songs for First Dance at Wedding
While planning a wedding ceremony the couple has to thoroughly pick up the music for the wedding party. The music plays its role in the evolution of the party as there are several segments that divide the wedding ceremony, each demanding meaningful music. The music can be divided in five big sections: the music for the religious ceremony, the music for the first dance (the dance performed by the couple, usually between the main course and dessert), the father to daughter music, the mother to son music, and finally the music to entertain the participants.
In between it may occur situations that require musical backgrounds in order to fill the empty moments, for instance a musical background when pictures and films are displayed in the remembrance of different past events of couple’s life or moments when speeches are held and so on. But apart from these the five sections are the main parts that need fully consideration.
The music definitely needs to match the theme of the wedding, so if you have a country themed wedding or you both like country music you have to make a list of your preferences that corresponds to your feelings and to the moments of the event.
Country songs for first dance at wedding, bride and groom’s dance, are numerous, but some of them count among the most wanted songs to be performed on the dance floor. The lyrics of these songs outline the feelings of the married couple, celebrating their love and desire for each other.
Here are some examples: “Could I have this song” – performed by Ann Murray, it tells about the first dance a woman had with a man and fell in love with him, while they were carried by the tune of the song. That song will stay with them for the rest of their lives and whenever they listen to it, they will be carried back into that first moment when they passionately fell in love.
“I walk the line” – by Johnny Cash. In this country song the lyrics is very powerful, the love he has for his woman makes him happy, gives him strength; the love and the image of his beloved keep him going, even in the moments of solitude he is comforted by the thought that she belongs to him and thus being able to face the darkness of the night and the light of the day. The love he feels for his beloved is the constancy that feeds the beating of his heart, admitting at the same time that she’s got her certain way to keep him on her side, but to him that seems quite all right as he knows that she belongs to him.
“For ever and ever” – performed by Randy Travis it’s an hymn dedicated to the everlasting love that the lover will carry in his heart for his woman. The love had the power to change him, and because of this he can promise that his love will be there as long as he lives. The lyrics of this song can be compared to the words that the couple say while exchanging the wedding vows; the singer’s lyrics resemble exactly a wedding vow that the man take to his wife. His love will carry them beyond the boundaries of time because love is timeless, love is eternal.11
