    Are you just wanting a particular genre of love songs (like crooners or 80s) or are you wanting all-across-the-board type music?  My friend had EVERYTHING played during her wedding dinner and it was pretty cool...believe it or not, Bob Marley's "Is This Love" was a big hit during dinner :)

    all across the board. we love country, 80s (rock and pop), i of course love the 90s... the only thing we really dont care for is like r&b and rap

    Some that we're definitely asking DJ to play during dinner (we're going for the crooners) : What a Wonderful World—Louis Armstrong The Way You Look Tonight—Frank Sinatra Because of You—Tony Bennett Moondance—Van Morrison More—Bobby Darin -----------------------MY FAV! Chances Are—Johnny Mathis You Send Me—Sam Cooke I know this is kind of genre specific and you want all-across the board, but maybe it will help?

    Here are some ideas off the top of my head..... At Last - Ella Fitzgerald Yellow - Coldplay The Way You Look Tonight - Michael Buble In My Life - The Beatles Thank You - Led Zeppelin (or cover by another artist) All I Want is You - U2 Hope this helps :)

    This is a great theme idea......

    Just the way you are..........Billy Joel
    From this moment on..... Shania Twain (this is our first dance)
    You've got a way.....Shania Twain
    Endless Love.... Lionel Richie
    Color My World ,Just You and Me, Beginnings.....Chicago
    You Bring Me Joy, Sweet Love.....Anita Baker
    My Girl....The Temptations
    You Make Me Feel Like a  Natural Woman....Carole King
    Chances Are......Johnny Mathis
    Some Like You......Van Morrison (the final song in "Bridget Jones Diary"

    You want to be careful to save some of these types of romantic songs for the dancing part so the couples there can having something to dance to.

    We have discussed this as well, and are using a movie music cd for all of dinner time. Currently it's between "No Reservations" which has lots of Italian operatic songs, "Something's Gotta Give" which is mostly french songs and love songs, and "French Kiss", also french and love songs. I'm leaning toward "No Reservations" because it will remind me of an Italian restaurant theme, and when else can you play uplifting operatic music at a wedding???

    Good luck.
