I don’t know why but it reminds me of this song. My guess is the lyrics 

michael Peterson- from here to eternity

alexabee:  have you heard “The One” by Kodaline? I absolutely love this song, and so does my boyfriend. I don’t think it’s mainstream yet which could work out for you! An acoustic version would be beautiful! Sorry no link, youtube is blocked at my office.

We’re not using “Thinking Out Loud” for the same reasons – it’s too damn popular right now. We chose Ray Lamontagne’s “You Are the Best Thing.” Not 100% similar, but I love the sound of both songs.

Check out “I Just Knew” by Better than Ezra. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o7v2Mj4i3cA It’s so sweet (and such a great band, if you’re not familiar!)

I included the lyric videos (or link to lyrics page) in case you weren’t already familiar with the song. I think any of these would make a beautiful and unique first dance song.

Stars – ‘My Favourite Book’

Angels & Airwaves – ‘Breathe’

* This song has a very romantic back story Tom Delonge the lead singer wrote it as an ode to his wife

City and Colour – ‘The Girl’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LxMtBQUTu-s

Mumford & Sons – ‘Not With Haste’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SCN7q70W09c

* This was actually my second first dance song choice because I felt mine and my SOs song might not be appropriate (by The Smiths) but we decided to go with it anyway 😀 

William Fitzsimmons – ‘Passion Play’

Same thing happened to us! My Maid/Matron of Honor who is getting married next year mentioned in passing that they picked “Thinking Out Loud” as their first dance song. Even though, my wedding (just occurred this April) is more than a year before hers, I just didn’t want to have the same song and frankly it wasn’t a big deal for us to search for another.

This isn’t close to Ed Sheeran’s style but wanted to share anyways – we picked Ellie Goulding’s “How Long Will I Love You” and did the extended version (~4 min).

KitSnicket:  Yes! And check out some of their other music, it’s so good! (I specifically recommed “Everything in 2s”, “Happy Endings”, “A Lifetime” & “Closer”)
