I love the song ‘all of me’ by John Legend for our first dance but I feel like its been done so many times and would like something different. Does anyone have any suggestions for similar songs?
My fiance also loves old songs, so we could also use an ‘oldie’ that has been re-done recently by a popular singer. Any ideas?
Thanks for your help 🙂

Maybe you could do a Michael Buble song. He has the crooner style and has redone several of the standards. Another good remake could be Beyonce’s “At Last.”

I’m not sure if you’re looking for a similar sound or similar feeling behind the song.
Our first dance was to Tyrone Wells “For Who I Am”. It has beautiful lyrics, and he’s not super well known.

My personal favorite as of late in the “old songs recorded by modern artists” category is Ingrid Michaelson’s cover of “Can’t Help Falling in Love”.
I may or may not cry when I listen to it and imagine it as our first dance song. Good luck with your search! 🙂

I Had all of me for our wedding one year ago, ( John legend with lindsey sterling accompanying on violin) and it was so amazing. Amother song I would have if not that one is ” thinking out loud” by Ed sherian

Stevie Wonder – You and I
Sade – By Your Side (also gorgeously used in Sex and the City)
Al Green – Let’s Stay Together
Brian McKnight – Back at One
Luther Vandross – Here and Now
I am actually right with you OP… looking for a soulful song, preferrably sung by a male, preferrably a bit older. Still on the look myself, the ones above are some contenders 🙂

I found an instrumental of “all of me” on YouTube that combines the violin and guitar. I think his name is Daniel Jong (??). It’s really interestong sounding wih the mix of instruments, and atill sounds like the original song. I also LOVE this song but couldn’t find a spot for it for our wedding.

Love it! We used it in our wedding too! I don’t know how to describe it but her voice makes me so emotional!

“Stay with you” by John Legend! It’s not “old” necessarily, but was made a few years ago, when he totally flew under the radar. I think it’s just as romantic as “all of me” but isn’t overdone!

I LOVE that song! Fiance isn’t feeling it though – we are thinking maybe Adele’s cover of Lovesong (a shortned version)
What about Al Green? I also love Otis Redding’s “These Arms of Mine.”

” All of me” is like nails on a chalk board to me, cannot stand that song. I am sure you will find a great song OP

I love her version! I am actually using it to walk down the aisle to. Since my story is exactly like, I couldn’t help falling in love and totally rushed in

What about Ray LaMontange-“hold you in my arms”? I’m trying to sell Fiance on this one, but i also LOVE “crazy love” by Van Morrison
