    I'm going to get an acoustic guitarist to play:

    One Love & Jammin – Bob Marley will play for guest seating
    Is this love - Bob Marley will play for the Groom, Groomsman and Bridesmaids
    Then I'm going to switch it up and have Angel by Jack Johnson by when I walk down the aisle.

      For the procession:
      The Hawaiian Wedding Song- Elvis's version but Jim Reeves arrangement (we're getting married on Oahu)
      YouTube - Jim Reeves - The Hawaiian Wedding Song

      While my dad's walking me down the aisle:
      There is Love (The Wedding Song)- Paul Stookey (my parents had this played during their wedding and I love the song and the idea of using it as well)
      YouTube - Peter Paul and Mary: Paul Stookey, The Wedding Song

      I think the best thing about having instrumental versions is that it doesn't matter if we have to cut them short. He can just stop playing at the end of a verse.
      Oh I love that song - "There is Love" My girlfriend sang that at my first wedding in 1980! during the signing of the marriage license.

      I totally had forgotten about that song until today!

      Great choice!

            I think we're going to use the Plain White T's "1,2,3,4" as the recessional...and actually have our guy sing it. We've chosen Ingrid Michaelson's "The Way I Am" for our first dance. I like these because they're upbeat and have cute lyrics. We're not much for the uber serious love songs.

              Thank you so much for posting these two songs! I loooove them! I'm pretty sure we are going to incorporate them some way.
