Wedding songs

My fiance and I are having a VERY small wedding, and just getting married at the registry office. We can pick our own music, but because the wedding is at the registry office, it can't have any religious content (which probably rules out 'Into My Arms' by Nick Cave, which was my choice! ). So, we're trying to think of good wedding songs.

Give me ideas, please.

NO religious content? Ugh! "Paper Moon" by Whiskeytown is such a beautiful song...my best friend and her man used it for their first dance, per my suggestion...but it mentions God. Meh.

"We've Only Just Begun"

actually to be honest, I don't know, but allow me to pass on my sincerest congratulations.

edit: actually, how about 'your love is the place where i come from' by teenage fanclub? i can't remember all the lyrics off-hand for any subtlety i'm missing but it seems to fit.

If it were a shotgun wedding I would be prone to suggest some Billy Idol.

I will try my bestest to thing of things. What immediately comes to mind is 'total eclipse of the heart' , but I think you should definitely have 'you're so pretty, we're so pretty.' Ok, but for real, I'll think...

Ok, can it say "sin?" How about Ben Harper's "Not Fire, Not Ice??" Wait, I think he just said "religion." and "blessed." How strict are they?

i had a huge argument with our dj as he flatly refused to play white wedding.

meggie you and sam should think about songs about love you both really like, compare your list, and go from there.

What a dumb rule, it's your wedding so you should be able to play whatever the hell you want.

I glanced really quickly at this & before I saw the van morrison part, i was like, 'she is NOT suggesting 'crazy in love?!''. Although there is a decent snow patrol cover of it...

Megan, lyrics to 'not fire, not ice'....not sure if it breaks rules or not...ok, probably does, but I it:
"Not Fire Not Ice"

There is not a river wide.
Not a mountain high.
And neither sin nor evil.
Could change how I feel inside.
Could change how I feel inside.

Not all the strength of the ocean.
Not all the heat from the sun, from the sun.
Now, others have tried, I just can't deny.
For me you are the one.
For me you are the one.

The true love is priceless.
For true love you pay a price.
But there's nothing can keep me from loving you.
Not fire, no not ice.
Not fire, no not ice.

Like a hero or a champion.
You are the best, you're the best.
Like religion or superstition.
With you I am blessed.
With you I am blessed.

Now the river may grow wider.
The mountain may reach past the sky.
And whether or not you feel the same.
My love shall never die.
My love shall never die.

The true love you give and take.
The true love is sacrifice.
But there's nothing can keep me from loving you.
Not fire, no not ice.
Not fire, no not ice.
Not fire, no not ice.

A lot of people I know like "Only the Beginning" and "Just You and Me" by Chicago. I hope you can find something that is very special to both of you that will be allowed!
