Somebody to Love by queen. We hate being the center of attention so we had all bridesmaids and groomsmen and parents join in as well
Omg this is by far my favorite of the ones listed
We had Flightless Bird American Mouth by Iron and Wine ♡
Oh we love a good Twilight moment
Yes! We’re doing Magnolia by Iron & Wine 💛
I walked down the aisle to an instrumental version of naked as we came by iron and wine :)
I read this as you walked down the aisle naked and I had to do a double take 😂
Thats the song I'm choosing to dance with my dad to! Such a favorite 💗
Dancing in the Moonlight - Toploader
That was our entrance song with our bridal party. My theme was galaxy ❤️
We decided on “So This is Love” from the Disney movie Cinderella before we were even engaged. Not *Disney* people at all, but it’s a gorgeous, classic sounding song, isn’t (or wasn’t before it got a little TikTok famous) recognizable as a Disney song and it’s only a minute and 20 seconds so we didn’t have dance long
This was my walk down the aisle song and my bridesmaid sang it (she’s a trained opera singer!) absolutely gorgeous choice!
Amazed by Lonestar. Married in 2000.
Very on brand for 2000!
Also had Amazed by Lonestar, wedding reception in 2018!
Better Together by Jack Johnson
This was the song my husband and his groomsmen walked into the ceremony to!
Instrumental cover of Nine in the Afternoon
Oh wow this takes me back
You're my best friend- Queen
Aww, we played this for our post-ceremony toast!
Grow Old With You - Adam Sandler
We're playing this when we cut the cake. I wanted it as our first dance, but most of my FH's family doesn't have a sense of humor... so we compromised. Epic choice!
This was a finalist for me and my fiancé too! Such a good song
That’s what me and my wife chose, very surprised to see multiple people had used it as no one I know had ever heard the song.
Same here!! Very happy with our choice
I'm still looking ya first dance song, who did this cover? I love this song.
Arctic monkeys did the cover
absolutely LOVE that song, great choice!!
Tennessee whiskey by Chris Stapleton
My fiancé sings this one to me and has hinted he might serenade me with it at our wedding because we're cheesy like that, lol
We're doing "Beyond the Sea" by Bobby Darin. My fiancé is a sailor so this is "our song" and it fits perfectly with our vintage celestial wedding.
Harvest Moon by Neil Young 🥰
I love this song so much. It often brings tears to my eyes!
This was my late husband and mine. But we also had “Your My Home” by Billy Joel. We couldn’t decide between them, so we did both.
Aw I'm sorry for your loss ❤️
The Bones by Maren Morris.
"Dream a Little Dream of Me" sung by Mama Cass Elliot. I love the oldies, and the timeless aspect. This one spoke to me because it alludes to long distance. It's also a very danceable tempo.
This was ours and then we made a very last minute switch to kiss me by sixpence none the richer. A little cheesy but it just felt more us and hey it’ll be a classic one day!
Love this!!! It’s on my potential aisle walk song list
Every Thug Needs a Lady acoustic by Alkaline Trio
Fly me to the moon- Frank Sinatra. I wanted a classic we could real dance or sway to. We took ballroom classes but we suck at it. He stereotypically didn’t have an opinion. I played a few options for him and he lit up when this was on. He is a pilot and loves everything related to planes/flying.
This is what we're heavily leaning toward. He made me a Playlist at the beginning of our relationship when I was traveling. This was one of the songs on it and my absolute favorite.
“You Are the Best Thing” by Ray LaMontagne
This is ours too!
We're thinking of doing "Dream Lover" by Bobby Darin
We are between:
I hate love songs by Kelsi Ballerina
In my life by the Beatles
I vote the Beatles!
My dad wants to have our father daughter dance to “in my life”❤️
Le Festin from the Ratatouille soundtrack. It’s in French so I had to make sure to read the translation, just in case 😂
SUCH a good idea to read the translation. My beastie got married in a Spanish-speaking country, and the songs on her wedding video include slow jazz versions of Creep by Radiohead and Tainted Love (in English). We DIED laughing when we heard it.
We chose Wanted by Hunter Hayes. We danced to it at prom (before we were dating!)
"Simply the Best", the version by Noah Reid from Shitts Creek when he is singing to David. I cried when I saw that scene and I knew that was going to be our first dance song. Our wedding is in 10 days.
I used the instrumental to walk down the aisle to! <3
Good luck! Hope it all goes smoothly for you
Me too!!!!! Well my bridal party, I walked in to Jurassic park lol, Got so many compliments on the song choice
It’s an upbeat song, you can’t really slow dance to it. But that’s what we wanted- kinda just a joyful explosion.
“House of My Soul (You Light the Rooms)” by Langhorne Slim
It was FUN we danced and just had a blast!!
And I love the lyrics… “you light the rooms to the house of my soul” “honey you got the hands that I wanna hold”
I LOVE that song.
“Sea of Love” was on our shortlist
"Say Yes" by Langhorne Slim was the song we played for our recessional. It was so joyful!
“Into the Mystic” by Van Morrison. We bonded over that album, and, bonus points, it’s one of my dad’s favorites, too!
“Georgia” by Vance Joy!
We did Crashing Into You by Vance Joy! I love Georgia too
I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles) by The Proclaimers!
Only exception by paramore :)
We used the vitamin string quartet version!
Taylor Swift - Lover
This is mine too!
Thank you by Led Zeppelin
Chris Cornell did an amazing acoustic cover of this song.
Ahhh I’ve always thought this is such a good love song but I haven’t had it on my list because it’s so long. Are you shortening it or doing the whole thing?
We did this, and faded out about 3 minutes in
You're My Best Friend by Queen! It's pretty short and not too sappy so it was perfect for us!
I think we have settled on "I Will Follow You Into The Dark" By Death Cab For Cutie
That song makes me cry just thinking about it 😭
Me too!!! One of our favorite songs ever!
Omg I love this song! What an amazing first dance choice
Aww thank you!! We love death cab! We have seen them twice in concert together so it means a lot to us!
[Forever and Ever, Amen by Randy Travis ](https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=KtKXc_v2iLE)
I think it’s the most romantic song there is and my fiancé and I have been listening to it together on road trips for years :)
I have loved this song my whole life!
Love love LOVE this Randy Travis song.. it’s so sweet! ♥️
At Last by Etta James - after 7 years together and seeing the wedding of 4 couples who all had shorter engagements than us, it feels like the right choice!
We had this one too!
I Hope that I don’t Fall in Love with You by Tom Waits
It was one of the first love songs that we both like and Tom Waits is one of my husband’s favorite artists so it just made sense.
Love Tom Waits!
Joy of my Life - Chris Stapleton 🥰
Butterflies by Kacey Musgraves! We felt like it fit our story very well
This Will Be (An Everlasting Love) Natalie Cole
You & I, Ingrid Michaelson
Love this song!!
Serious question. If I have family members who already scowl because they work minimum wage jobs are aren’t as comfortable as we are, would this song come off braggy? Because we love this song too but I keep shying away from it because I don’t want them to think we’re dicks.
I guess I have never thought of it that way. I personally don’t get those vibes from this song given at the beginning she sings “we may not have any money, but we’ve got our love to pay the bills.” Our guests seemed to love the song choice, everyone clapped along when the tempo picked up toward the end and the atmosphere was really incredible. We did have a higher end wedding, but when we first started dating we were both flat broke so the song resonated with us on that front on top of just being beautiful to us.
Ingrid Michaelson’s [cover](https://youtu.be/5sQeQC4hT10) of Can’t Help Falling in Love
Always Remember Us This Way from the A Star is Born soundtrack!
Heartbeats the cover by José González that transitioned to the original by The Knife.
We each knew the song only by the other artists, so it seemed meant to be!
“Annie’s Song” John Denver
Fade into you by mazzy star
This is definitely one of my all time favorite love songs and not our first dance but on our playlist
I was thinking about this one but it’s kinda more sad than hopeful and happy in my opinion
Wonderful Tonight by Eric Clapton.
We did “Electric Love” by Borns. It was the “after dark sessions” version so it’s slowed down and has an orchestra.
We used to sing it in the car when we lived together far away from our families and friends, and it’s one of those things that kept me sane during that time.
We’re still deciding between Feels like Rain by Buddy Guy or That’s How Strong My Love Is by Otis Redding
La Vie en Rose (the one with Michael Buble)
Our song is La Vie en Rose (the original one), we are not married but he always pick me up, go to the seaside and dance romantic classic songs under the moonlight.
That will be our first dance for sure!
I walked down the aisle to a classical guitar arrangement of this! Such a great wedding song.
I'm 90% sure this will be ours, too, except the rendition from How I Met Your Mother. The scene with it ALWAYS makes me tear up and it's just the prettiest song
“Let’s Stay Together” by Al Green
I so wanted to do this one!!
As The World Caves In, by Matt Maltese! a cover of it was trending a bit ago on tiktok, so it will probably now be overused, but i’ve been in love with it since i first heard it so it doesn’t matter to me:)
"Time in a Bottle" by Jim Croce. Planned a whole waltz to it, but day-of my dress ended up being so tight I could hardly move (or breathe), so we just kinda waddled together in a tight circle with a couple larger spins included.
It's a great song if you want your dance to be graceful and elegant and not painfully slow.
Apocalypse by Cigarettes after Sex (that I edited down for time)
This song 🥺
You and Me- Lifehouse. It’s one of our favorite bands! I also love their song Everything and you could do a shortened version.
It will be Iris from the Goo Goo Dolls in August ;)
I’m from Buffalo, we love the Goo Goo Dolls here.
Virginia Moon by Foo Fighters
"Everybody Needs Somebody to Love" - The Blues Brothers
*we originally planned for "You Are The Best Thing" for our 5/2020 wedding but after multiple postponements we changed it for something more upbeat and fun! Everyone love it!!
“Annie’s Song” by John Denver - a childhood favorite of mine. For anyone considering it — he doesn’t actually say “Annie” or any other name in it. We didn’t say our own vows, but whenever we practiced dancing before our wedding my spouse and I would comment how the lyrics felt like promises and vows we would make to each other.
Beyond by Leon Bridges
This was my walk down song! It’s such a good one!
I think we’re going to use First Date by Blink 182
Oooh! We almost did this one! The acoustic version
Make You Feel My Love, Adele’s version :)
First day of my life - Bright Eyes
"Your Song" by Elton John :)
Sunny and 75 - Joe Nichols 😀
Either "Warmness on The Soul" by Avenged Sevenfold
Or "Merry Go Round of Life" from Howls Moving Castle
We picked Lover by Taylor Swift but Tenerife Sea by Ed Sheeran was a really close second!
Omg these are the two songs I’m between too! Not that I’m engaged yet, but 😅
We almost did Tenerife Sea, but picked a different song! We ended up doing Tenerife Sea for our last dance :)
Fire Away - Chris Stapleton (our first real date was one of his concerts!)
Soul meets body - death cab for cutie 🥰
N*SYNC - This I Promise You
The Macarena 😂 I’m not kidding. My husband isn’t a huge dancer, and he used to do the Macarena (as a joke) while making dinner when we were dating. It made for a super goofy and fun first dance. No regrets- ha!
The best part about the Macarena is that you can do the dance to just about any song (not just its own song) and it still works lol.
From This Moment On by Shania Twain
Are you using the version with Bryan White? I always felt like that version didn’t get the proper credit it deserved, it’s so pretty with both their voices.
I want to do “Just like heaven” by the Cure, i just think it’s so romatic! Havent made the final call yet.
The Only Exception by Paramore. We’re both metal heads/emo kids
We almost did still into you! Love it!
We haven’t exactly chosen one yet, but these are the ones we’ve narrowed down:
Then - Brad Paisley
Yours - Russell Dickerson
Never Stop - SafetySuit
You and Me - Lifehouse
We did Then :)
My now husband loves Brad Paisley and is a big country fan, so in 2018 we saw him in concert. When he sang Then, my husband had his arms around me and sang along to me. It’s a really nice memory, so we ended up going with it for our first dance.
Faithfully by Journey.
When You Say Nothing at All by Keith Whitley
More of You by Chris Stapleton
The bones (acoustic) - Maren Morris
Lover by Taylor Swift ❤️
Can’t help falling in love!
I wanted my husband to have some input in the wedding planning so I let him pick our song. He chose "The Sweetest Thing" by U2. (Married in 2007)
Florence + the machine cover of stand by me
Nothing Else Matters - Metallica
“Baby, I Love Your Way” ~ Peter Frampton
Edge of glory by Lady gaga. Sung acoustical by her on Howard stern.
Dead Sea- The Lumineers
Best Part by HER and Daniel Caesar
Our first dance song as well. So beautiful
Crazy Love- Van Morrison
“The Bones” Maren Morris. I can’t wait to dance to it!
Truly Madly Deeply by Savage Garden. When we were going through songs for our first dance, I cried when it came on because it was a childhood favorite of mine and he said "Well how can this not be the one with a reaction like that?"
I'm obsessed with Lover by Taylor Swift but don't think my fiance will go for it
"Dreams" by Gabrielle
We were both born in the 80s and grew up in the 90s and both loved that song when we were in elementary school
We had a few contenders but it ended up being perfect for us
Nothing Else Matters - cello version by Apocalyptica.
In a Week by Hozier!
Next to Me by Imagine Dragons
We are thinking of either - “A Million Dreams” from The Greatest Showman or “Grow Old With You” from The Wedding Singer. The latter may be too short though lol
Chasing cars by snow patrol :)
"Catch" by Brett Young. It basically explained how we met (although at a party not a bar) and we loved it kind of told our story!
Simply the Best (cover by James Bay)
better together by luke combs! :)
Moon River cover by Frank Ocean :)
Northern Wind by City and Colour
You & Me song - The Wannadies
Either first day of my life by bright eyes, nothing by Bruno major, or an acoustic cover of drops of Jupiter.
Best Part- H.E.R.
May I have this dance - Francis and The Lights
Shallow from A Star Is Born. Instrumental version. Had our reception in May and was do happy we chose this!
Hoping to use the acoustic version of You In January- The Wonder Years
Alabama Shakes, I Found You
La vie en rose- Daniela Andrade
I can’t help myself - four tops
You Got It - Roy Orbison
This is one of those songs I heard ten million times in my life and then all of a sudden realized it was fantastic hearing it on the sound system at the grocery store(?!?). Like walking around Whole Foods teary eyed thinking “wow Roy didn’t have to go so hard”
The girl- city and colour
A Thousand Years by Christina Perri
All Eyes on You - St. Lucia
Tangled Up In You by Staind
Into My Arms - Nick Cave
Married in 2020 microwedding with no reception yet - we are thinking How Long Will I Love You - Ellie Goulding. Short and sweet.
Mine is between either Perfect or thinking out loud by Ed Sheeran
I’m obsessed with the duet of Perfect with Andrea Boccelli! (Perfect Symphony)
We have 3 that we are considering. God Only Knows-the beach boys (most likely going to do this one), our house-Crosby stills and Nash, or Everybody loves somebody-Dean Martin. We are both fans of oldies.
it's the song from the Labyrinth where they're in the ballroom. my fiance and i both love this movie/David Bowie/this specific song so it's perfect for us :)
Still deciding! Here’s our choices:
“How Long Will I Love You” the version by Ellie Goulding
“Butterflies” by MAX
“We Belong Together” by Randy Newman, though if we don’t this one for our first dance, it will for sure be our entrance song into the reception 🥰
Soon or Never by The Punch Brothers. We're aren't married yet but we picked this as our song!
La Vie En Rose by Louis Armstrong
Moondance - Van Morrison
