It’s okay babe, you can put the umbrella down. If you’re like us, you’ve been clutching to your umbrella like your fave lip gloss and we all deserve a break.
What better way to unwind after a long, waterlogged week than with wedding fantasies! And day dreaming about your first dance is just what you need.
The song we have chosen for you this week comes from Sleeping at Last. You probably know them from your favourite scenes from Twilight (don’t lie you loved those movies), but if you lived under a rock and didn’t watch any of them (read obsessed over them), don’t worry, you’re not at that much of a disadvantage (other than the epic love triangle of Bella, Edward, and Jacob… seriously just go watch it).
Sleeping at Last has amazing songs for weddings because of their beautiful instrumental music and romantic voices.
Before this river becomes an ocean before you throw my heart back on the floor. Oh baby I reconsider my foolish notion I need someone to hold me (1:55)
As you have discovered throughout all your relationships, if there is an issue that you don’t address or resolve, it will continue to surface and cause more or bigger problems. When there is someone that you love as much as you love this handsome person on the dance floor with you, you want to solve any problems you encounter as soon as they’ve come to your attention to squash them. When you have open and honest conversation, you can talk through and work out small things before they become big snowball issues. Everyone has issues, it’s how you work through and resolve them that make for the best and strongest relationships.
I gotta have faith, I gotta have faith (3:10)
As much as you can contribute to the honest and open conversations you have, you need to have faith in your partner that they are being open and honest with you too. We have a tendency of assuming the worst of others, but there is no one you should try the hardest to flip this around than with that special person in your life. We need to treat each other with love and have faith that they are treating you the same way. You guys obviously love each other, that’s what brought you two love birds together to where you are on the dance floor today, so you need to remember to act on that love each and every day.
We assume that once you heard the first chorus you knew what this song was, but it has been totally transformed to a song that is perfect for your first dance. The soft voice and the instrumental elements are the perfect blend for the first dance of your dreams.
We hope you enjoyed our song selection and you got to fantasize, even for a few minutes that you weren’t hiding inside from the rain and that you were on your wedding day surrounded by love and dancing with the man of your dreams. Let us know your thoughts in the comments and as always feel free to share.
Until next time bride tribe. Cheers!
