For me, it’s From This Moment On by Shania Twain (the version where only she’s singing) – gets me crying like a baby every time I hear it. But alas, we’re going with “God Gave Me You” by Blake Shelton because Fiance likes it, and it’s rare for him to like a sappy love song! I’m considering walking down the aisle to a piano version of From This Moment On so we can both get what we want ๐Ÿ™‚

All I Have Left Is You by The Offspring. If I listen to it while driving, I start crying.

LOVE Feels Like Home! But found it tough to dance to, we used “When You Say Nothing at All” by Alison Krause. Cry every time I hear it.

“I’ll Stand By You” by The Pretenders or “Falling Slowly” from the Once soundtrack are two of my favorites.

My husband and I danced to I Won’t Give Up by Jason Mraz, because I was just wowed by the sentiment in this song.

I second “The Luckiest” by Ben Folds, or the “falling Slowly” song fromt the Once soundtrack. they are soooo good!

If you like really meaningful but a bit of 80’s throw back, how baout Eternal Flame by the Bangles? The 80’s had some of the most intense  love ballads!! hah.

Wonderful choices! I originally had Feels Like Home as our song choice for first dance but changed it for You and Me by Lifehouse that a male friend will be singing. I love the song so much though that I am going to use it for the my processional and A Thousand Years for the bridesmaids I think.

Hehehe, We just agreed on A Thousand Years for our wedding song. One of my bridesmaids had Feels Like Home for her wedding, another beautifullllllll song. Either would be amazing and heartfelt! 

I originally wanted The Power of Love by Celine Dion….its a little cheesy bc its Celine, but the words and the song give me goosebumps everytime. Fiance thought it came too much from the woman’s point of view…..so we decided to have 2 spotlight dances after..A song I pick from my point of view and a song he picks from his ๐Ÿ™‚ Celine will definitely be played haha He chose Lucky Man by the Verve

Our last song of the night will be Wonderful Tonight by Eric Clapton…our song ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ll be walking down the aisle to the instrumental version…we figured we would start the day and end the day on the same note ๐Ÿ™‚
