Music

So I have strated putting together my music list for the wedding.. We are only doing slow type music..both our parents are really conservative and plus my family doesnt dance..but ifigured slow music would be good..pretty much all the love songs.. So anyways I was wondering
1. if any of you had any suggestions for some songs?
2. what is your favorite love song?
3. What is you and your FI's song?

Re: Music

  • I LOVE country music..and sadly it doesn't play much around here.. so here are a few songs that I really like and maybe you'll like them too!  (all slow songs)

    - Then by Brad Paisley
    - You and Me by Kenny Chesney
    - Only You Can Love Me This Way by Keith Urban
    - Amazed by Lonestar
    - I Swear by John Michael Montgomery
    - Last Day of My Life by Phil Vassar
    - From this Moment by Shania Twain
    - It's Your Love by Faith Hill & Tim McGraw
    - My Best Friend by Tim McGraw

    If I think of some more I'll post them for you!  I'm not sure what my FI and I will be using yet... he actually made me a video a few years ago of pictures of us with the song "my best friend" playing to it... so perhaps that!

    The Beatles. I am a HUGE fan. They have so many great songs. When I'm 64; It's Only Love; Love Me Do; Something; I Will; Real love; All You Need Is Love.

    Yellow by Coldplay is fantastic. It is not the slowest song but Strawberry Swing by them is very cute and nice.

    Till There Was You is a lovely song. I can't remember who originally sang it. It is very nice though. Very romantic.

    Our song is Always by Saliva. Not a very romantic song and not wedding appropriate but it has been our song since high school.

  • Wow you all seem so on top of the music and I haven't even gotten a first dance picked lol

    Our first dance is either going to "Dream a Little Dream" by Michael Buble (I like his version better) or "South Texas Girl" (Matt found this and likes to play it for me since I'm from Houston originally) but the second one is a long song soooo I don't know

    Aside from that, we'll play some classics and alot of top 40. We're dancers.

  • Yeah I have not picked too much yet and I totally agree about the not play lits! I will be pissed if the chicken dance plays!!!!

    We do not listen to slow music so this will be a little tough for me to come up with songs that you would like but we are going to have.....
    *Yellow - Cold Play
    *Many beatles songs!!!!
    *Strangers in the Night - Cake cover
    *If I want you too - Weezer
    *Love Song - 311
    *Some Incubus
    *Some Smashing Pumpkins (but not Today)
    *Your sex is on Fire - KOL
    I have not gotten much further then that.....

    I am having a problem with our first dance song, we are not sure what to do. Our song is Your Sex is on Fire and we want to dance to our song but think that it would be a bad idea. We are going to play it but we can dance to it later. That just leaves what we are going to dance to....Got plenty of time to figure it out

  • So far we only have our first dance song which is going to be "Better Together" by Jack Johnson. Other than that we have no idea.. 
  • We have no idea what to pick as our first dance, but I have started a running list of songs we like to dance to and the 'do NOT play' list.

    Slow songs I love:
    "You and Me" - Lifehouse
    "Iris" - Goo Goo Dolls
    "I Wanna Grow Old With You" - Adam Sandler
    "How Sweet It Is to be Loved By You" - James Taylor
    "Book of Love" - Peter Gabriel
    "Don't Wanna Miss a Thing" - Aerosmith

    (All from my "possible first dance" list haha!)
