    What a great bunch of songs on here! 

     

    I am just wondering, forgive me if this is a silly question, but when does the Groom and best mangrooms men walk in...do they get a song as well? 

     

    Also, if doing a symbolic ceremony I think I have seen that we sign a certificate to make it look "official" but is this a long process that will also require a song, or not?

      We did not do a song for groom, but you can do it if you want to and we did a song for signing registrar, it is not very long process, but long enough to have it is own song :D

        Good questions.  Did not think about that!

          I am walking down the aisle to 'Forever' by Ben Harper and my fiance and my first dance is to 'Love of My Life" by Dave Matthews and Santana and the father/daughter dance is going to be to "That's How Strong My Love Is" by Otis Redding.

           

          I am just struggling to come up with a good mother/son song.

           

          Here are the lyrics for 'Forever' by Ben Harper

           

          Not talkin' 'bout a year
          No not three or four
          I don't want that kind of forever
          In my life anymore
          Forever always seems
          to be around when it begins
          but forever never seems
          to be around when it ends
          So give me your forever
          Please your forever
          Not a day less will do From you

          People spend so much time
          Every single day
          Runnin' 'round all over town
          Givin' their forever away
          But no not me
          I won't let my forever roam
          and now I hope I can find
          my forever a home
          So give me your forever
          Please your forever
          Not a day less will do
          From you

          Like a handless clock with numbers
          An infinite of time
          No not the forever found
          Only in the mind
          Forever always seems
          to be around when things begin
          but forever never seems
          to be around when things end
          So give me your forever
          Please your forever
          Not a day less will do
          From you

           

          Here are the lyrics for 'Love of My Life" by Dave Matthews and Santana

           

          Where you are, that's where I wanna be
          And through your eyes, all the things I wanna see
          And in the night, you are my dream
          You're everything to me

          Chorus:
          You're the love of my life
          And the breath in my prayers
          Take my hand, lead me there
          What I need is you here

          I can't forget the taste of your mouth
          From your lips the heavens pour out
          I can't forget when we are one
          With you alone I am free

          Bridge:
          Everyday, every night, you alone
          You're the love of my life
          Everyday, every night, you alone,
          You're the love of my life

          Outro:
          We go dancing in the moonlight
          With the starlight in your eyes
          We go dancing till the sunrise
          You and me we're gonna dance, dance, dance

            Love Ben Harper! We aren't going to use him for the first dance because FI already had something in mind, but I want to incorporate a song of his somewhere. Hadn't thought about walking down the aisle, but that could be an option!

              I really like the idea of walking down the aisle to it because of the words "give me your forever"  : )

                I don't think it's a silly question. We had a song for the groom (combined with the ringbearer; we didn't have any groomsmen). He chose 1,2,3,4 by the Plain White T's.

                 

                As for the signing, I think it would be nice to have a song for it but if you choose not to, then that's fine too! :) We didn't do that but we did a greeting of our parents and the guests for which we played a song as well.

                    We leave Tuesday but still have a few decisions yet to make regarding dance songs and cake cutting song.  However, our ceremony music is finalized as is our reception entrance song and dinner music.  For the ceremony we have a violinist.  It was challenging to decide but we are going more classical with some of these choices:

                     

                    Processional:  Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring

                    Bride:  Canon in D

                    Sand Ceremony Music:  "Storybook Love" by Mark Knopfler (from "The Princess Bride")

                    Recessional:  La Rejouissance

                    I am still in my early planning stages although so far I love the following songs...just bit sure where to incorporate where yet - but will share my initial thoughts - AND I AM SURE THEY WILL CHANGE 100 TIMES!  LOL!

                     

                    1. Marry Me Train  - predictable, huh? - maybe maybe maybe walk down the aisle to an acoustic no lyric version
                    2. We Are Man & Wife - Michelle Featherstone - maybe while we sign the civil/legal ceremony documents
                    3. A Thousand Years - Christina Perri
                    4. This Years Love - David Gray  - another option to walking down the aisle or entrance of FI & ring bearer (no groomsmen)
                    5. Run - Matt Nathanson & Sugarland - not sure, but love it!!
                    6. Will You Still Love Me - Amy Tiger - First Dance or You & Me - Lifehouse - which is OUR SONG

                    Blissfully married since April 2, 2013.
