    What a beautiful song.
    We haven't decided on a 1st dance yet, but we wanted something upbeat but not too upbeat, if that makes sence lol.
    My last dance I want BEP - Dirty Bit (time of my life) as I love dirty dancing but H2B won't let me have the original (to cheesy, according to him) x

    Better - Tom Baxter http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6rQoFQJrUTM

    I just love the lift in the middle 8. It makes the song feel like it's ascending.

    Our first dance is going to be Elbow - A day like this.

    Love it, just wish I could get a string quartet in too.. - perhaps a bit overkill.

    It's an unusual one i think and perhaps not one everyone will have had..

    Elbow are one of my all time favourite bands. Been following them for a long time and we have One Day Like This in our set. It's pretty hard to play without something other than guitar to replicate the strings but we do a cool version.

    Ours will be 'I'm Yours' by the Script. It's been our song since we got together 4 years ago so there was never any question what it'd be.

    I don't know why but I'm really nervous about slow dancing in front of all those people!

    We can't decide and the wedding is 8 weeks away. Mark insists that he needs to teach me how to waltz first. And then decided we needed a song done by a "Big Band" group like the in the 1940s. I vetoed that right quick! Waltz fine, but seriously?

    I was thinking The Cure's Love Song (we're in our 40s so The Cure is a thing for us) but covered by Adele or Amy Winehouse's No Greater Love.

    Was listening to Electric Dreams today thinking how great a wedding song it would make! Think we're having Time of My Life followed by Amazed by Lonestar :-) x

    This is also our song. It's been our song from when we first got together so it's only fitting to have it as our first dance. x

    Couple of good ones that are more indie are Morning Afterglow by Electrasy - beautiful song that kind of fell off the planet after a while. For Lovers by Wolfman and Pete Docherty is another cracker

    EDIT: Another belter, I just remembered is Ryan Adams, When the Stars Go Blue or La Cienaga Just Smiled - boy can write a song!

    A few great ones that we've had recently.

    God only knows - The Beach Boys
    Higher & higher - Jackie Wilson
    You never can tell - Chuck Berry (pulp fiction)
    We found love - Rihanna

    We rearranged rihanna at the brides request with a pretty piano intro building to the full techno arrangement. Have to say we had our reservations beforehand but they absolutely loved it! The whole place was bouncing! Just proves it really doesn't have to be the traditional love song :-)

    We are having Pink - Glitter In The Air. It was the first concert we went to together and it was during that song when he put his arms around me that I knew I was falling in love. Cheesy I know but I like that it means something to us both x
