Romantic First Dance Song Idea: A Cover of a Cover Song!

by Vi-An Nguyen

Their First Dance Song: Lauren and Josh danced to The Tallest Man on Earth's cover of Bob Dylan's original “I Want You" — as performed and recorded by Josh! It was totally in-character for this music-oriented groom, who's actually been singing all the way through his relationship with Lauren…

Why It Was Meaningful: It was only appropriate that Josh's pipes make an appearance during the couple's first dance. They first met at a karaoke bar — “he sang 'I Believe in a Thing Called Love" by The Darkness and was great at it!" Lauren says. To top it off, right before Josh proposed to Lauren, he surprised her with a live performance of “Noticed" by Mute Math in front of all their friends and family. “After that, he said he had to ask me something, asked me to come up, knelt down on one knee (with microphone and all) and pulled out a box with our initials engraved on it," Lauren says. “It was wonderful!"
