Song suggestions?

Hey girls, I thought this would be a great board for this question...

My fiance and I are trying to figure out what songs we want in our wedding.  We'll walk in to Canon in D and out to... I can't remember what its called, but whatever.

We'd like two songs sung in the wedding.  One Christian song, and one secular song.  I think the Christian song would just be a stand alone piece of the ceremony and then the secular song would be during the unity candle and marriage license signing.

My fiance and I have known each other since middle school - we started "going out" in like, seventh grade and then off and on until senior year, when we parted ways.  We dated other people - I had one boyfriend for six years, and he dated more casually - but we eventually found our way back to each other and decided to get married.  So if any of you know any suggestions of songs that would be appropriate for our story... that would be a bonus :)

Thanks in advance girls!

    One of our songs was Honestly by Stryper and while it does not fit your exact situation (no bonus for me), I love the lyrics:

    Honestly, I believe in you
    Do you trust in me
    Patiently, I will stand by you
    I will stand beside you faithfully 

    [Bridge]
    And through the years
    I will be a friend
    For always and forever 

    [Chorus]
    Call on me and I'll be there for you
    I'm a friend who always will be true
    And I love you can't you see
    That I can say I love you honestly 
    Call on me and I'll be there for you
    I'm a friend who always will be true
    And I love you can't you see
    That I love you honestly
    I will never betray your trust in me
    And I love you can't you see
    That I can say I love you honestly

    Our other song was All of Me (also Stryper) which also has great lyrics.  I never thought I'd have 2 Stryper songs at my wedding and they are kind of older songs too but I just loved the lyrics to both songs so much that we did two Stryper songs.

    I'm singing "The Day Before You" with a live band as my future wife walks down the aisle. :D You could also use "That's What Love Is" by David Phelps

    Day Before You
    I had all but given up on finding
    The one that I could fall into
    On the day before you
    I was ready to settle for
    Less than love and not much more
    There was no such thing as a dream come true
    Oh, but that was all the day before you

    Now you're here and everything's changing
    Suddenly life means so much
    I can't wait to wake up tomorrow
    And find out this promise is true
    I will never have to go back to
    The day before you

    In your eyes I see forever
    Makes me wish that my life never knew
    The day before you

    Oh, but Heaven knows those years without you
    Were shaping my heart for the that day I found you
    If you're the reason for all that I've been through
    Then I'm thankful for the day before you

    Now you're here and everything's changing
    Suddenly life means so much
    I can't wait to wake up tomorrow
    And find out this promise is true
    I will never have to go back to
    The day before you

    Was the last day that I ever needed alone
    And I'm never going back
    No I'm never going back

    Now you're here and everything's changing
    Suddenly life means so much
    I can't wait to wake up tomorrow
    And find out this promise is true
    No I'm never going back
    I will never have to go back to
    The day before you 

    Thats What Love Is
    It’s the only thing worth life and death.
    It’s the first moment and the final breath.
    It’s a broken heart keeping a solemn vow
    And a lost soul being found.
    You pray for faith when it’s hard to believe.
    You choose to stay when it’s easy to leave
    And when hope is gone you’re the one who keeps holding on.

    Chorus 

    That’s what love is
    When you give until there’s nothing left
    And it makes you give the very best.
    That’s what love is.
    It can make you laugh and make you cry.
    It can let you down and lift you up so high
    When you find the only reason left to live.
    That’s what love is.

    It’s the dream you give up for someone else.
    It’s being strong when you’re weak yourself.
    Though it tears you up you trust again.
    Hatred loses and forgiveness wins.
    You turn your cheek when you want to fight.
    Sell all you have and lay down your life
    And when hope is gone you’re the one who keeps holding on.

    Chorus 

    It’s reaching out and holding on so someone else will know.
    Love is in the not letting go.

    Chorus

     

    - The Groom

    We had When I say I do by matthew west sung while we did the unity candle and took communion.  it was beautiful.  I also love the song God Gave me You...and if i had thought about it first, that probably would have been our song instead.  They are both beautiful!

    Your story sounds like "After All" might be fitting. It's a beautiful song and not too long.
