Ok, so I thought I had made up my mind. But now I am wavering again. I like “Grow Old With Me” by Youngstown, I love their voices, it’s soft and romantic, and the words are so simple and sweet. I love the repitition of “God bless our love.”
At the same time, it could be even on a tad cheesy and overdone, I don’t like the title, and it doesn’t have a good climax for me to walk in on.
“Bridge Over Troubled Water” by Simon & Garfunkel has always been a favorite song of mine. It even reminds me of my childhood because I played it at my piano recital when I was in middle school. It reminds me of my relationship to God, and how my fiance shows that to me through sticking by me and being there through everything, even the tough times. And it has a dynamic climax, and right after I walk out it would sing “sail on silver girl, sail on by, your time has come to shine, your dreams are on their way…” which I think is precious. But I was worried the song may not be that common for weddings….but I like to be unique.
HELP! What do you think?

Anyone have an opinion? I really am indecisive.

wow I was totally prepared to vote for one song or the other but I really like both of those! I sang grow old with me at a wedding once during the signing of the mariage license. Bridge over troubled water was the song that played on my husband’s and my 1st date when we were 15, so it is sentimental for me too!
I think either way you will have a good song. Do you have a 1st dance song yet? because eithe one could be good for that, or a last dance of the night. If you don’t yet have a “last dance” before your exit song, I would use bridge over troubled water and walk in to “grow old with me”
We did that with the 2 songs we cound’t decide between for 1st dance, so we used “for once in my life” by Buble for 1st and I’ll be there by the Jackson 5 for the last. it was perfect.

I know, it is a hard choice isn’t it! As far as reception songs go, we already have the first dance song set as “Unchained Melody” (the version from the movie Ghost) and the last dance as “Truly Madly Deeply” by Savage Garden. So I like your idea, but in this case, I’m still stuck.
I think I’ll just keep listening and trying to decide, asking other people, and waiting for more bees to buzz their opinions. 🙂
