Way back when, long before we were even engaged, my then-boyfriend-now-fiance said out of nowhere “Hey, you know what we should do our first dance to? “At Last” by Etta James.”
And despite my love of all things jazzy and swingy, I had no idea what he was talking about. So he turned to youtube and found it for me.
And wow, what an amazing song. “Fantastic!” I responded and that was it, we locked in what might be one of the few things we were going to agree on.
Only, then I started doing the wedding research, and apparently every man and his dog has Etta James’ “At Last” for their first dance. It has become cliche, or so I have been informed.
So, what do you think, should I stick with the cliche song and say to hell with it, or do we find a new song that still has all the same meanings, but that people won’t already be sick of?
