Ooh, this one is tough. The fiancee and I have narrowed it down to three or four choices (including "What are you doing the rest of your life" and "what a wondeful world" both of which are especially meaninful to us.

I’d say you two should think through some special times for the two of you as a couple and see if they evoke any memories of particular songs. Was there something playing during your first kiss? Something you danced to? A movie you saw together that has a particularly beautiful theme song? 

Whatever it is, it will likely mean more to you 30 years from now if it’s a song that’s special to you and not just something you picked randomly. 🙂


Good luck! Let us know what you choose!

Ours was "Baby it’s Fact" by hellogoodbye.  We did a cute choreographed dance.  We also had our rings engraved with the main lyric.

I think this is a very personal choice that should reflect you and your fh’s personalities.  Even though ours wasn’t traditional, everyone loved it!

Either "My Best Friend" by Tim McGraw. I know I’ll be crying if we choose that. I cry now when I hear it!

Our other countender is "A Whole New World" from the Aladdin soundtrack. That one has special meaning to us. I knew he was the one the day he showed up at my office with the sountrack to Aladdin and The Little Mermaid!

We danced to Best Friend by Queen – unusual and upbeat – but the lyrics fit us well.

And Irishgirl – I wanna grow old with you was our entrance song!  I love it!

We are dancing to "Better Together" by Jack Johnson….because, well, we are better when we’re together.  Besides being huge Jack fans, this song has held special meaning to us throughout our relationship.

We’ll have to practice a bit before though – it’s a mix between an slowish song, yet slightly upbeat.

We saw Robert Plant this summer and I love old Zep too.  My choice (if we are indeed coastal) is "Sea of Love" by Robert Plant and the Honeydrippers.  Gorgeous song and his voice?  To die for.

Very elegant yet cool song.

Magic by Colbie Cailat, this song reminds me exactly of the way I feel about him.

My fiance and I are dancing to Bryan Adams – Ill always be right there. It is a beautiful song with a beautiful message. We are dancing to the unplugged version. If you have never heard it before you HAVE to listen to it! 🙂 It made me cry… in a great way!

We’re using Your Love is King by Sade – we love it and it has just the right tempo, so many songs we love were way too slow for us to dance to in front of anyone without doing the middle school zombie dance~ (you know where you just sway to the music! haha)


Our entrance is going to be we are family~

got to set a party tone for the reception!
