Saturday night we had concert tickets to see Jerrod Neiman, Chris Young, and Miranda Lambert. We were late and missed Jerrod, but Chris and Miranda were awesome! They really know how to throw a party/concert.
This really does pertain to the wedding! I swear. But let’s start at the beginning…..
We had been tossing around a few ideas for our first dance. The top two contenders were “God Gave Me You” by Blake Shelton and “Crazy Girl” by the Eli Young Band. Both had their pros and cons.
“God Gave Me You” would be easier to dance to, but our band doesn’t play it yet, so we would have to make a special request that they learn it; which was doable. Our band’s contract came with the stipulation that they would learn two extra songs at no cost, if we wanted them to play something that they didn’t already know.
“Crazy Girl” (not exactly my favorite since the “crazy girl” would imply ME! But whatevs) is a modern waltz and would be tricky to dance to, but we both like it and the band already knows how to play it.
This wasn’t a decision we were going to kill ourselves over or spend hours/days/weeks agonizing about. Both of us were willing to compromise and would have been fine with either (who'd of thunk it?).
And enter amazing concert by Chris Young stage right.
Saturday night, we entered the pavilion, grabbed a beer, and headed to the lawn with our blanket. We finally found a spot (the place was already packed), spread our blanket, and settled down to enjoy the show. We were just in time to watch the Chris Young part of the show. He was starting to wrap up and play his last song, when I leaned over to Michael and said, “This would be a fun song to dance to”. He leaned back on his elbows, got this look on his face, and then said, “Yeah, I like it”. And just like that, decision made!
I’m excited! We actually both whole heartedly agree on something! Now we just have to make sure the band can learn it. Keep your fingers crossed!
Even when we go to non-wedding events, we get wedding stuff done. We are so efficient!
