How about "Until the End of the World" - - ha ha ha!!!
I'd think "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" would be the worst

I've always thought "Stay (Faraway So Close)" would be a good wedding song though I think it's just a personal choice.

"Everlasting Love" would be a nice peppy song, while "Slow Dancing" (the version with Willie Nelson) would be nice for the activity in said title.

Being that the person in that song is being abused, it doesn't really sing wedding day to me.

I had All I want is You as my wedding song... it was very beautiful... I'm always puzzled when people want to have "One" as their wedding song... especially if they're a U2 fan... makes no sense at all... i think there's a quote by Bono about it... how he doesn't get it either...

We played this at our wedding reception way back in 91. "Take my hand, you know I'll be there if you can I'll cross the sky for your love...give you what I hold dear."

So perfect.... We also played U2's cover of Unchained Melody.

Well my wife and I doubted much about the song choise,

Original of the species was an option, In a little while (live from boston) was an option, but finally we chose "Sometimes you can't make it on your own" the unplugged version that came with the HTDAAB DVD.

I'm a ballroom dancer, and I'm pretty sure U2 doesn't have very many songs you do anything to other than rocking back and forth, but Slow Dancing is one that you can dance to, and I think it would be a good choice. You could Viennese Waltz to it. Of course then it would be fast dancing.
I love Slow dancing


"My love is cruel, as the night.
She steals the sun and shuts out the light,
all of my colours they turn to blue, when I'm with you.."

I'd probably lean towards some of the other suggestions made- Stars Go Blue, Unchanined Melody and the like.

I lent my "Everlasting Love" single for a friend's wedding. Unfortunately they were later divorced... But it's certainly suitable.
A good song I heard at a wedding lately was "She's So High" by Tal Bachman - worked perfectly.

Perfect line here:

'I love you 'cause I need to
Not because I need you
I love you 'cause I understand
That God has given me your hand
He holds me in a tiny fist
And still I need your kiss.'
Those lines from Luminous Times always make me think of my one year old son.

I agree with Everlasting Love...though U2's version is nice, its not the best, but i would still say it would be cool for a wedding

I'm thinking about my wedding songs now. (i'm not engaged YET, but have a feeling its on the way!!)

i ADORE OOTS and feel that i will probably have that one as my boyf who isnt a massive u2 fan loves that song.

I also love In a little while, but some of the lyrics don't mean what i want! lol

hmmmm it is tricky!

We had In a Little While. The lyrics where perfect for us. I knew I wanted it for our wedding song the first time I heard it.

We also had "stars go blue" during a slide show and "sweet baby" by Macy Grey.

It is hard to decide but once you do you will be so sure about it. if that makes any sense.

First of all, I would choose LOVE RESCUE ME, MY ALL-ALL TIME FAVOURITE U2- song, in fact it's the GREATEST SONG I ' VE eVER HEARD!!! (I think, nobody mentioned it before...) I love it soooo much!!.....during changing and pulling on wedding rings....
Then I would dance to All I Want Is You, The Sweetest Thing, and of course: HAWKMOON 269(!), and u2 cover of Unchained Melody and Stand By Me....
