Just like that it’s December. Can you believe it? Just a few more weeks and it’s Christmas! The most wonderful time of the year! For the month of December we’re going to take a turn in our song selection and highlight songs that are perfect for a first dance for a Christmas wedding. Although it isn’t the most popular time to get married, it is such a magical, love filled season, and December brides need songs too!
But don’t worry, we aren’t going to suggest that your first dance to be Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, or Jingle Bells, we are still selecting a song that has the meaning of love, that can be a representation of your relationship, and now, be in the Christmas spirit!
The song we have chosen for you today is Love is Christmas by Sara Bareilles. Sara Bareillis has sold over a million albums and is best known for her single Love Song. Her music is piano based and has a unique voice that makes all of her music even more special.
Go ahead and take a listen and get into the Christmasey wedding spirit with us!
Love is not a toy, and no paper will conceal it. Love is simply joy that I’m home (0:28)
Love is not something that you can buy at Walmart or Toys R Us. You can’t wrap it and put a bow on it. It’s just like the Grinch says “it came without boxes or tags”. Love is a feeling you have when you’re together, and it is so important to remember at this time of year, and for everyday.
I don’t care if the carpet’s stained we’ve got food upon our table (0:42)
The Christmas season is one filled with visits from friends and family members. Between working, Christmas shopping and wedding planning, cleaning may not be at the top of your priority list. It doesn’t matter if everything isn’t perfect because you are so fortunate to have a place to live and friends and family that love you. Your wedding day will be filled with so much love and that is something to be thankful for.
Love is who we are, and no season can contain it (0:55)
When Christmas is over, it doesn’t mean that the feelings of gratitude and love are tucked away under the stairs until next year. Once your wedding day is over, it also doesn’t mean that those feelings are packed away with the cards and the guestbook. Love is at the centre of who you are together and it lasts all year!
Let love lead us, love is Christmas (2:55)
Love has led you to this point in your relationship, and will continue to take you on new adventures together. Love brought you together and kept you together, and just like in the vows you are writing, it will keep you together for the rest of your lives. Love is the foundation of your relationship, and it is the foundation of Christmas. You wouldn’t spend all that time and money on people you didn’t love.
All we need is your best my love, that’s all anyone ever wanted (1:58)
No one person is perfect, and no love is perfect. All that you are asking for in this new stage of your relationship is to be the best people you can be and love each other in the best way you know how.
See, we told you it wasn’t going to be a sing a long Christmas song that you’ve heard a hundred times. Christmas songs can combine the spirit of the season with the heart felt meaning that we want in a first dance song.
Are you, or someone you know getting married around Christmas? We’d love to hear if you love our song selection, or if you chose a different Christmas first dance song. Let us know in the comments! Thanks for dancing along with us. Until next time.
