Wedding Ceremony & Reception Music Discussions

Searching for love songs!

I'm looking for love songs, even "offbeat ones". I am doing a "love song wedding mix" CD for my guests at the wedding (not my favors, just for fun). I have a handful that I definitely want on there but I am looking for suggestions too so I have that perfect mix. Songs I have so far:

"First Day of my Life" -Bright Eyes (our first dance)
"I'm Yours" -Jason Mraz
"Here, There, and Everywhere" -The Beatles
"The Luckiest" -Ben Folds
"Better Together" -Jack Johnson
"Love Song" -Tilly and the Wall
"Everything" -Alanis Morrisette
"Forever in Blue Jeans" -Neil Diamond
"You and I" -Wilco
"Chasing Cars"- Snow Patrol
"I'm a Believer" -The Monkees
"Grow Old With Me" -The Postal Service

Whata re your favorite love songs new or old? What other songs should I add to the mix?! Or are you/have you done this, if you did, what songs were on yours?

    You already have half the songs from the CD I gave our dj but here are some other ones.  We are obviously Weezer fans.  My MOH did this as favors for the bachelorette party.

    "My Bestfriend" by Weezer
    "I Was Made For You" by Rivers Cuomo
    "Put Me Back Together" by Weezer
    "Let's Stay Together" by Al Green
    "You Are The Best Thing" by Ray LaMontagne

    "Hem of Your Garment" by Cake (we did this for the garter toss)
    "Praise You" by Fat Boy Slim (our entrance song)

    Kings of Leon - Loose Somebody
    Def Leppard - 2 steps behind
    Meatloaf - A kiss is a terrible thing to waste

    Bon Jovi has good ones :)

    Yay! I just love "First Day of My Life." It is so sweet, and will definitely be a contender for our first dance song :) Another one I love is "Unobstructed Views" from Death Cab For Cutie's new album Codes and Keys. I guess marrying Zooey Deschanel inspired Ben Gibbard to do a pure love song hehe.
    Just SO incredibly happy!!! Wedding Countdown Ticker
