    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 :)
    Huh, I think I would love a copy. :)

        I feel the same way when I hear this song. I played it on a car trip & my friend asked what it was because she wanted to dance to it at her wedding.

        I think it's a waltz. A really simple waltz (I dont mean like a ballroom style fancy waltz) is so easy & looks good.

          You may have already made your decision, but are you familiar with "Everything" by Lifehouse? It's so good! It is a bit long, but you only have your "first dance" once so why not make it last? :)

          YouTube - Everything by Lifehouse

          Find Me Here
          Speak To Me
          I want to feel you
          I need to hear you
          You are the light
          That's leading me
          To the place where I find peace again.

          You are the strength, that keeps me walking.
          You are the hope, that keeps me trusting.
          You are the light to my soul.
          You are my purpose...you're everything.

          How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
          Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?

          You calm the storms, and you give me rest.
          You hold me in your hands, you won't let me fall.
          You steal my heart, and you take my breath away.
          Would you take me in? Take me deeper now?

          How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
          Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?
          And how can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
          Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?

          Cause you're all I want, You're all I need
          You're everything,everything
          You're all I want your all I need
          You're everything, everything.
          You're all I want you're all I need.
          You're everything, everything
          You're all I want you're all I need, you're everything, everything.

          And How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
          Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?
          How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
          Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?

          How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
          Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?

          Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?

            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)
            I love the Van Morrison idea.. Into the mystic is a great song.. Here are some other suggestions:
            Irish- the goo goo dolls.
            Thank you - Dido
            Always- Bon Jovi

              I love Iris by the Goo Goo Dolls, but that song makes me so sad not happy. If any of you have see the movie City of Angels, the part where they play that song is the saddest part of the whole movie. So, that is always what it reminds me of.

                    we're dancing to everyday is a holiday with you by esthero - k doesn't like 'traditional' wedding songs - what a struggle the rest of the night's songs will be!...here are the lyrics (quite appropo for a DW!)

                    I met him on sunday
                    I loved him by tuesday afternoon.
                    Woke up on friday
                    And changed my whole life to make some room.
                    Around a quarter to two I have remembered all my lines
                    I'll say "When I think of you, You're like my favourite song... or that melody, that melody I love"
                    And it goes: La da da da da..da da da

                    Hopped on the metro and I make my way home
                    but I can't get him out of my mind
                    No matter just how hard I try
                    And if the rumours are true
                    then I can look forward to some better days and getaways..... so nice
                    Cause when I am with you
                    You're the crescendo to that melody that melody I love

                    We'll have better days and getaways cause everyday is a holiday with you

                    You've gotta let me know
                    I gotta know for sure
                    Don't leave me out in the cold
                    I've gotta know for sure
                    lalalalalalalala....

                    When I think of you
                    I see better days and getaways cause everyday is a holiday with you.


                    i originally wanted amy winehouse's there is no greater love, but k nixed that....
                    here are the lyrics to that:

                    There is no greater love
                    Than what I feel for you
                    No sweeter song, no heart so true

                    There is no greater thrill
                    Than what you bring to me
                    No sweeter song
                    Than what you sing, sing to me

                    You're the sweetest thing
                    I have ever known
                    And to think that you are mine alone

                    There is no greater love
                    In all the world, it's true
                    No greater love
                    Than what I feel for you
