We are using Wilco duet with Feist – You and I. It’s perfect for us!

I went to a wedding where they danced to “Let’s Stay Together”.. I thought it was really cute! Especially because it has the lines about “whether times are good or bad, happy or sad”. It seemed appropriate.

We are using “We Danced” by Brad Paisley. Its very fitting for us in how we tease and play back and forth as well as the words being very fitting for a wedding and “dancing out there on that empty hardwood floor”.  Uggh, I so cant wait! Good luck with choosing your perfect song!

Adele’s cover of Love Song by The Cure.  Blue Eyes by Cary Brothers.  Forever by Ben Harper.  There’s a ton out there, just try to listen to as many as you can!

We are considering:

“Lucky” Jason Mraz

“I’d rather be with you” Joshua Radin

“Time after Time” cover by Javier Colon

“I never” Rilo Kiley

All are modern songs 🙂

If you’ve ever watched Con Air with Nicholas Cage, we’re using the Trisha Yearwood version of How Do I Live, not the squealy LeAnn Rimes version the DJ at our engagement party played. Thanks- but no thanks!

 

My biggest problem is that, because it sounds so much nicer, not crying on our first dance!

@ijustrockout:  I just have to ask, this song is musically gorgeous but the words can be kind of depressing and negative depending on interpretation.. does it have a significance for you two?  Just curious!!  🙂

We are using “First Day of My Life” by Brighteyes.  We also considered Ryan Adam’s cover of “Wonderwall”.

We are using ‘Two is Better Than One’, by Boys Like Girls/featuring Taylor Swift. I love her, 2 out of the 3 birthdays we’ve been together he’s taken me to see her, and we met BLG on the plane ride home from our first vacation!
