I really like the first one, but it’s a little folky for my taste.

Don’t really care for the second one at all.  Have you listened to the original version, the Lionel Richie and Diana Ross version?  I like that one much more.

I don’t like to rain on people’s parades usually but since you did ask for opinions, I will respectfully offer mine. I have to agree with @tksjewelry. The Ross-Richie version of Endless Love is one of my favorite songs of all time. Mariah Carey and Luther Vandross did a passing version as well. Aside from my intense dislike for Gokey, objectively, I think he’s butchering the song.

I absolutely love the first one; I’ve always found an acoustic guitar more inviting and romantic than a full orchestra suite for a brides walk. Never been much of a fan for Canon in D either 😛 But I love this song, because it has the subtly and beauty that I feel a brides walk needs

The second song is very classic rnb/cafe/jazz even I would say. I have to admit I dont like the vocals as much as the first song, but it does seem like something you can dance too (its a faster paced than the first). I think they are good choices, but I do prefer the vocal stylings a bit more of the first one. I think I just love acoustic and the sound it has 🙂

Edit: I mean, I think Im a bit biased here (Im all about the folksy, acoustic music, I chose the version of The Sundays Wild Horses for my ideal walk song :P) so that says alot

So really I think maybe the second song (I listened to it again) might be reassessed; I just really dont like the vocal stylings, and I think there are more soulful rnb/easy listening songs that capture the romance a bit better than this one.

The first song is nice. I wouldn’t choose a song with words, but I know a lot of brides do..I guess I am just old fashioned because I chose Canon in D..haha! It’s a very pretty song though..beautiful!

 

As for the second song, I listened to both versions and prefer the original. However, if you prefer this version – go for it! Our first dance song was Etta James- At Last, however we used Beyonce’s version because we found it to be a bit more modern.

I love the first song! I almost used it a couple months ago but decided to go with something else!

 

Also, I don’t really care for the second one personally AND I really liked him on AI. It just sounds…off? Also it is pretty long so that is another thing to consider.

LOVE the first song, going on my wedding list as a possibility for the reception. Or maybe I can get my wedding singer to sing it at the service.

As for the second, while I definitely prefer the original, Gokey’s version isn’t horrible. He sounds rough, but maybe that’s his style and makes you like him? I’d say if you like it, go for it.
