Good love/wedding songs?

Hey everyone, I'm getting married in May and the place I'm doing it at allows you to have an ipod with your own music playing. So I'd like to come up with a playlist of songs to play. I want some cool love/romantic or similar music...rock/alternative/whatever...really anything...well...I don't really want country or hip hop...I like folk sounding stuff though. Anyway, I'd love some creative song ideas so I can put it together, thanks!

Congrats, wolfQ!

My wedding song was "Country Feedback" by REM. Even though it's been many, many years and even though I am no longer married, it was the perfect choice for us and I love that it was such a unique song.

Yes, these are completely appropriate for a wedding. Well-chosen.

For my wedding, I'm totally hoping to find a band/singer that will do 50 Cent's "Candy Shop" in the style that it was done in The Hangover. That'll make anyone's wedding a winner.

YouTube - "Candy Shop" from The Hangover (Performed by Dan Finnerty & The Dan Band)

On a serious note, I think the type of songs you play at your wedding should reflect who you are as a couple. What type of music do you both like? Are you traditional? Something like "Unchained Melody" "At Last", "The Way You Look Tonight" etc. would work. Do you have more indie tastes? What genres of music do you like? All of that is something you'll want to consider.
