If it’s special to you, then it doesn’t matter if it’s trendy. It just means a lot of people recognize what an excellent choice it is. Wink

Decide together!

It seems like you don’t already have “your song” or something similar?

Pick one that reminds you of a favorite memory of the two of you, or pick a totally new song so it can be “your song” for the rest of your life!

I say who cares who else uses it – as long as it has meaning/is right for YOU, then who cares?

 

I want our first dance to be to A Thousand Years by Christina Perri…talk about an over-played song at weddings (probably) not to mention the connection to the Twilight movies (gag).

I don’t care though – the song is perfect.

It’s the “I gotta feeling” by the Black Eyed Peas of this year’s wedding set. If you love it go for it – I mean, you’ll hear it on the radio a lot which will make you reminisce. But, it won’t be original. It’s pretty easy to edit music with free online software – i’d just edit the original Peter Gabriel song down a bit to make it shorter if it were me. We danced to Keith Urban’s “Somebody Like You” and cut it down to 2 minutes.

Pick whatever song speaks to the both of you.

If it’s that trendy, you’ll probably still hear it years from now.  I willing to bet 1998-2000 weddings are the reason Edwin McCain’s “I’ll Be” still makes radio and party playlists. 😉

On the other hand, we won’t be hearing Van Morrison’s “Someone Like You” all that often!

I’ve only been to one wedding that used Marry Me, and I’ve been to a lot of weddings in the past year!

@Paiger8:  I love the old songs too. Lionel Richie remade endless love with Shania twain…best wedding song ever!

Who cares if it’s popular if you like it use it. A lot of classic songs get played at weddings like At Last, What a Wonderful World and doubt any guest care or are put off by it.

I’ve never been to a wedding that played Marry Me! I feel like things are “popular” but your guests likely haven’t seen it used at a wedding, so they won’t know the difference!

We’re having a slide show with pictures of us- Book of Love is the last song on the slideshow…LOVE that song.

As for Marry Me- do what you want! Who cares if it is a popular choice now, if it is meaningful to you- then do it.
