    My fav is Crash by DMB.

    ~ Jaime & Martin ~
    "Rain or Swine! 2-0-0-9"

    We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!

    We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

      i love the rest of my life - michelle featherstone. i used it in a ss recently and it still makes me a little teary when i watch it. of course i love the couple so i feel very attached to them :)

      we were considering the following songs

      cant take my eyes off of you - frankie valli
      songbird - eva cassidy
      she - elvis costello (love the part where he says - she maybe your heaven or your hell - cause thats so true!!! haha!)
      when you say nothing at all - ronan keating

      and lastly sara smile - hall and oates. and thats the one we went with. i know, my names not sara. we hadnt even decided until the wedding day. i was playing them the morning of the wedding and after my husband heard the first line of this song, he said that one.

      Baby hair with a woman's eyes
      I can feel you're watching in the night
      All alone with me and we're waiting for the sunlight
      When I feel cold, you warm me
      And when I feel I can't go on, you come and hold me
      It's you... And me forever


      i have a crazy amount of baby hair. you know that fringy little hair around your face. he used to play with it when we would lay around on the sofa watching a movie or something.

      notice i said USED TO. were old married folks now. he doesnt spend nearly as much time gazing into my eyes now - sigh!

      i say if you love DMB crash. use it. i also love crush! and love of my life. and #41 but thats not really a first dance song.

        I only know the DMB song, so I can't really say what I think of the others.

        I'm doing the same thing overthinking the song.

        we both like:

        bless the broken road - rascal flatts
        I'll stand by you - the pretenders

        I also like:

        when you say nothing at all (there is a country version with a man & woman, but I can't find it on itunes, but thats the one I really want)

        And then it seems like everyday I hear great songs that would be perfect! Why can you only have one!

          Allison Krauss & Keith Whitley both sang it. I thought there was a duet version with Allison Krauss & maybe Vince Gill, but I couldn't find that by googling. Here is the wikipedia link When You Say Nothing at All - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

          There is also a version with a meixcan singer. That might be a cool version for a mexico wedding. I haven't heard it.

            Every one has such good song ideas, it really is hard, because the world is full of great songs.

            Since no one seems to know the song, Awake by Secondhand Serenade, I thought I would share the lyrics to Awake. What do you think. I also like the idea of a spanish song so I think I will do that for my walk down the isle, I just have to find a great one, and since I don't speak spanish it is not going to be easy. LOL.

            Awake-Secondhand Serenade

            With every appearance by you, blinding my eyes,
            I can hardly remember the last time I felt like I do.
            You're an angel disguised.

            And you're lying real still,
            but your heart beat is fast just like mine.
            And the movie's long over,
            that's three that have passed, one more's fine.

            Will you stay awake for me?
            I don't wanna miss anything
            I don't wanna miss anything
            I will share the air I breathe,
            I'll give you my heart on a string,
            I just don't wanna miss anything.

            I'm trying real hard not to shake. I'm biting my tongue,
            but I'm feeling alive and with every breathe that I take,
            I feel like I've won. You're my key to survival.

            And if it's a hero you want,
            I can save you. Just stay here.
            Your whispers are priceless.
            Your breathe, it is dear. So please stay near.

            Will you stay awake for me?
            I don't wanna miss anything
            I don't wanna miss anything
            I will share the air I breathe,
            I'll give you my heart on a string,
            I just don't wanna miss anything.

            Say my name. I just want to hear you.
            Say my name. So I know it's true.
            You're changing me. You're changing me.
            You showed me how to live.
            So just say. So just say,

            That you'll stay awake for me.
            I don't wanna miss anything.
            I don't wanna miss anything.
            I will share the air I breathe,
            I'll give you my heart on a string,
            I just don't wanna miss anything

              I think I've heard the song. At least I know I've heard a song by Secondhand Serenade on the radio & I love it. But, I don't know any of the words. It has a great acoustic sound.

                I like Alison Krauss's version of this, I think that would be really pretty and romantic for you to dance to with your fh.

                  That might be it.

                  I just had to tell you I really like your Logo for your wedding, did you do it yourself? It is really great!

                    Thanks! I made it friday night with help from people on the forum. There is a whole thread of people giving me feedback on colors, text, etc. It was a lot of fun.
