Tom Waits Little Trip to Heaven Wedding Song

Best First Dance Song at Romantic Wedding

Finding the right tune to kick off the evening dance can be a bit of a challenge, as lets face it, we are spoilt for choice aren’t we?

As a Wedding Planner working with couples on their big day I get to see first-hand how the first dance sets the scene from the dreamy wedding ceremony full of sentiment, to the start of the party celebrations of the evening.

So whether you cant wait to hit the dance floor, or if its not your thing, then sticking to romantic lyrics will ensure your guests will go weak at the knees (even if its not due to your dancing skills!)

Look no further than Tom Waits song ‘Little Trip to Heaven(On the Wings of Your Love)’ – Ive popped the lyrics here and link for you to decide:

Lazy trip to heaven on the wings of your love
Banana moon is shining in the sky
Feel like I'm in heaven when you're with me
Know that I'm in heaven when you smile
Though we're stuck here on the ground, I got something that I've found
And it's you
And I don't have to take no trip to outer space
All I have to do is look at your face
And before I know it, I'm in orbit around you
Thanking my lucky stars that I've found you
When I see your constellation, honey, you're my inspiration, and it's you

You're my north star when I'm lost and feeling blue
The sun is breaking through the clouds don't you, don't you know it's true?
Honey, all the other stars seem dim around you
Thanking my lucky stars that I've found you
When I see your smiling face, honey
I know nothing ever going to take your place, and it's you

And it's you, and it's you, and it's you, and it's you, and it's you
And it's you, and it's you, shoo-be-doo, ba-da-da

What did I dance to when I got Married?

‘Unchained Melody’ (The Righteous Brothers) and was performed by a live musician whilst we danced back in 1999!
