Hello Lovelies!

Today I am coming at you with a reblog. I am a big fan of the Real Simple wedding writers. They do a great job of bringing relevant content to readers (including me). Brigitt Hauck, the writer for Real Simple, recently complied a list from the RS Facebook fans for the best first dance songs.

Well those fans know what is up because this list is wonderful. A few of my top 20 made the cut (they’ll be the ones with the ** beside them). Lucky for you, they even made a Spotify list for you to listen to.
