I'm thinking of having two sets. One if its sunny and one if it isn't. I read that you should pick three songs but not sure if we'll really need that much. We're country lovers so a sunny song I like is Tim McGraw's My best friend. If its rainy I really like the Clint Black song "like the rain"
For our 1st dance we used "I Found Love when I found You" by Kenny Wayne Sheppard. Neither of us are country but it is beautiful. It was the 1st slow dance we danced to as a couple in 2002 and our wedding was 2008.
When God Made You by New Song when I walked down the aisle
I Don't want to Miss a Thing by Aerosmith when we kissed
I Swear by John Michael Montgomery during our document signing
Just By Being You by Steel Magnolia during our first dance
We are getting married in June at CSA and here are the songs we are leaning towards:
Walking down the aisle: "Marry Me"
Walking back down the aisle: "Making Memories of Us"
First Dance: "Here" by Rascall Flatts
Garden Music: "Don't Stop Believing" by Journey
We get married in Scotland tomorrow (in 16 hours time) before coming to CTI for our honeymoon on Tuesday 5th April.
We're walking in to "My Love is Like a Red Red Rose" by Eddie Reader, a Rabbie Burns song. When we sign the register to "Wild Mountainside", again by Eddie Reader. She sang that song at the opening of the Scottish Parliament, and we think its appropriate for the opening of our marriage. Goggle both of them, they are fantastic. We walk out to "The Greatest Day" by Take That, and our first dance will be to "At Last" by Etta James, fantastic words.
Can't believe how quickly the time has flown in. No nerves but heeps of excitement. Jacqui and Iain.
Thank for the ideas ladies. After much thought Im going to pick the song that has sentimental value to us. It was a song playing the night me and my fiance, ya know had one of those special nights (wink wink). Everytime I hear it now, it puts a smile on my face. Not only was it played during a special moment, but that was when we decided to have a child together. We knew it was not the conventional way of doing things but we wanted to do it *our way*!
It's Alicia Keys-Unthinkable
We spent more time picking out songs then anything else we did to get ready for our wedding. We used I'm Yours and Lucky by Jason Mraz, Smile by Uncle Kracker and Hey You (ILove You) by Michael Franti and Spearhead. These songs really fit the island atmosphere!
We had 5 songs we brought on CD. All of them have meaning to us and I think on the day you will be glad to choose songs that you LOVE because it makes it much more special for the two of you. It is a very personal choice and really sets the atmosphere. Here's what we had.
