When I was 12 or 13-ish, it was my dream to play this song at my wedding. I wanted to be married on either October 18th or October 21st, I just thought those were perfect dates. I wanted a dress that corseted up the back and to wear black and white checkered Vans. I wanted to walk down the aisle to the string part of The All-American Rejects’ “Swing, Swing.” Rufio’s “One Slow Dance” would obviously also be in the rotation.
I started writing this so we could all have a good collective laugh at my expense, but now that I’m thinking about it, it was kind of sweet really. I still love all three of those songs and will ensure they are all played at my actual wedding so the dream stays alive. My heart could still be captured by those songs a decade (a DECADE!) later. Honestly by the end of the night the Vans might get broken out as well.
