Message To My Girl - Split Enz...

There are numerous versions, a really georgous Orchestral version on the ENZSO CD as well... Lyrically, Muscially... perfect.

We had U2's version of Unchained Melody at our wedding.

It was either that or Rocket Queen by Guns N' Roses...

U2 has a version of Unchained Melody? Do you know where maybe I could find it at? I love the original and wasn't aware that U2 had done a cover. By the way a good wedding song would be "I Cross My Heart" by George Strait. Im not into country music but it's a beautiful love song.

I love this song too. My husband and I had our first dance to this song. We also had it in our wedding video. Seven years later, people still ask me about that beautiful song. It's moving and timeless.

I also really love Beatles songs. Something (Something in the way she moves...attracts me like no other...) makes a beautiful first dance song.

Beautiful Day would be great for a video. And of course perfect for a wedding. September by Earth Wind and Fire is a great dance song. It always gets the crowd moving and seems to evoke happiness. We used that song in our video too.

At weddings, I just love to hear Fly Me to Moon. I don't know, it's just a wedding song. As far as old fashioned, classics that song is perfect.

As far as recessionals, I kinda like Beautiful Day. I also love Vivaldi Spring as a recessional.

Thanks Hippy I will have to check it out. Didn't even realize it was there. Oh and there's always Edwin McCain's "I couldn't ask for more". Think that's a pretty sweet song.

So do I .

A lot of other great choices here, too. I know this is probably cliched, but how about "Wonderful Tonight" by Eric Clapton? There'd be another good one. Or the Corrs' "Run Away".

I've also always seen U2's "In A Little While" as a love song, so perhaps that'll work, too? There's a few more for you (and congrats on the upcoming wedding, too, by the way!).

oooooo! good one!


I love how most of the songs in this thread I never really imagined using in a wedding before



Now I want to get married just so I can play music!



Of course, that would require an s.o. first


I thought of another one... The Beatles' All You Need Is Love
