I have officiated seven weddings (and DJed an additional two). Pretty sure “At Last” has been played during at least six of those ceremonies-even the heavy metal wedding*. I’d have to imagine “At Last” is the first dance at 1 of every 4 or 5 weddings in the U.S. per year; it’s become almost as standard a procedure as cutting the cake. The fact that this hasn’t led to outright annoyance or even boredom from wedding attendees nationwide speaks to the pure beauty of this song. I mean, people have gotten sick of “Don’t Stop Believin.”** “At Last” is a standard for a reason. Hell, it almost makes me want to reconsider my quite non-traditional views on marriage.
*-This may or may not be true; I’m legitimately not sure. But it’s a cool story. The song’s ubiquitous, is what I’m essentially saying.
**-The next to last or last song played at (I’d guess) 1 out of every 3 weddings containing more than ten white people.
