    We like "If I didn't have you" from Amanda Marshall but it's not a done deal!

      Or something by Van Morrison? They have a lot of songs that you could use as a first dance song...like...Into the Mystic (I think that's what it's called)
      We debated Dance with you, but I hate the way he says Dance, its like Daaance with you, why does he have to do that. lol

      Love Into the Mystic and I am not a Van Morrison fan.

        Love Van Morrison. We'll probably have Crazy Love or Into the Mystic, if not as our first dance, on the playlist.

        Gavin DeGraw also has a great song "More than Anyone" I think it's called. That's another option for us.

          4. Beck- Everybody’s got to learn sometime
          5. Sade- By your side
          6. Nil Lara- Fighting for my love
          7. Paul McCartney- Maybe I’m amazed

          16. Live- I alone

          3. The Cure- Love song

              What about Best Friend by Queen, that is under 3 minutes and a good song!

                    Thanks so much for all the suggestions. I loved all the songs suggested.

                    Last night was fun me and FH had a blast listening to the songs and figuring out which is an us type song. We're going to use all the suggestions (LOL) and make a CD to play during the cocktail hour and dinner.... FH thought of that!

                    AND... we came to a tough decision. OUr first dance song is between 3:
                    Lifehouse- You and me (stripped version) this song has some attachments to us because we saw them in concert a couple years back. I loev this song!
                    David Gray- This years love: something about this song just gives me goosebumps, don't know what it is. But almost every time I get emotional listening to it.

                    OR
                    Tim McGraw/Faith Hill: It's your love - I know it wasn't suggested but FH suggested it and I was in shock because it's country. I know it's unoriginal but the lyrics are perfect for a wedding and it's only 3 minutes 30 seconds! haha

                    Thanks again pals! Thanks to you we now have 3 great CD's!! (If anyone is interested I could probably send ya a copy :)
