suggestions please!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


I used to be a singer and I don't do it anymore. I do it for fun around the house and FI loves to hear me sing. Anyway, I am planning on surprising him with a song during our reception. I am drawing a blank on what to sing. I would love to hear any and all suggestions.


Songs that I have already sung at other people's weddings that I don't want to sing:

At last- etta james

Come away with me- norah jones

They can't take that away from me- Ella fitzgerald

A bunch of Celine Dion stuff


Thanks guys!

Betsey I actually really love that song. I hadn't heard it in ages.. hmm


Danielle I am so blank. Honestly he goes crazy when I sing anything but usually what I sing around the house is musical theatre stuff or random songs that I am making fun of. Yeah we don't have a song.. like an "our song" kind of song.

I looked up on google greatest love songs and some of them are really funny. It's really dated list but possibly a patsy cline song.


I'm trying to stay away from the you broke my heart ones. haha

Yamille - have you looked at any of the threads where ppl post their first dance songs? Maybe one of those will inspire you.


I'm biased but i like Bob Marley Is This Love (its our first dance). Another one I like is Amazed by Lonestar but it could be kinda cheesy, but i have to say my MOH had her friend sing it at her wedding and it was really nice

Yeah patsy songs are broken heart. I'm still brainstorming... so if anyone out there has ideas I would love em.


Yael- good tip on looking at 1st dance songs. Thanks! I listened to Amazed cause I didnt know it. I can see that being a nice song with a woman singing it too but I don't think it's right for us.

Thanks girls.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
