Ever since my cousin Lisa’s wedding back in the mid 90s I have wanted “From This Moment On” by Shania Twain to be sung at my wedding. When I mention this to people most of them look horrified. I am torn between this song that I absolutely love and having people cringe during my ceremony. I am also a girl who loves weddings from eras gone by and dont really see issues with lace and tulle and giant bows so maybe I dont see this correctly either?? HELP!

Personally, I have yet to hear that song even once at a wedding. However, I remember when the song was released and it played on every single radio station for months. Then it slowly faded away into oblivion. Chances are that most of your guests haven’t heard the song at all, or for a long time. If you love the song, then use it, since it shouldn’t matter what anyone else thinks.

I like that song. If you like a song, it IS timeless. Good songs can’t be dated.

I love that song and was actually going to walk down the aisle to it. I’m a firm believer that it’s your wedding and if you love that song you should use it. If it was me I’d be curious and ask those that cringed, “Why do you react that way”. Is it because it’s from a decade ago? Over played? What ever the reason it wouldn’t sway me and probably tell them “Ok, I was just curious. I hope you know the words because I’m walking down the aisle to it”. There is always going to be some song that a guest has heard over and over at a wedding. Big deal, do what you love.
Do you want the song played by Shania Twain or the instrumental?

@Ill Be Mrs B:
One of my bridesmaids, whom I have known since kindergarten and who has an unbelievable voice will be hopefully singing this one! Im from a very rural area and so country is pretty popular so Im betting most of my guests will know the words! LOL 🙂

Eh, I remember 3 girls in highschool that got married right after graduation (1998-the year it came out;) that walked down the aisle to it. So yes for me; it’s very dated, however it’s not 20 years old. 😉 But if you love it, use it!

I guess I’m superstitious, but she wrote that song with her husband, and then he cheated on her. That’s why I wouldn’t use it.

I was going to/might still use this song for my first dance. The lyrics are beautifully appropriate and it’s just a wonderful song! As long as YOU love it, that’s all that matters!

If you love it, go for it!
This was the theme song for my prom, so I personally couldn’t use it 😉

LOL @ “When I mention this to people most of them look horrified.”
I say you should use it! I’ve never heard it played at a wedding and even if I had, who cares. If you love it and it’s meaningful to you, then definitely go for it! It’s only a few minutes out of your whole day, let people make faces (but they probably won’t because they’ll be too busy snapping pictures and watching you two). 😉

If you love it, go for it. It’s your wedding, so why not? Just don’t wear a crushed velvet sleeveless turtleneck dress 😉

If you love it, then please go for it!! Please don’t let other people’s judgments get in the way. Everyone has different taste, so it would be impossible to select wedding details that appeal to everyone. If you and your FH go with all of your top personal choices for your wedding, then your day will be uniquely yours! Your guests will love attending a wedding that’s personal and reflective of the bride and groom!
P.S. I love “From This Moment On” and think it’s a fabulous ceremony choice! 🙂
