    Ours is Far Away by Nickelback. I have a list of other songs that didn't make the cut - they will be playing while the guests are waiting for my grand entrance.

      So, until about an hour ago, I had our first dance song planned out. My FI came home early today!! (he is usually out of town for two weeks at a time) He took a couple days off because he missed me and wanted to see me. We were driving to go out to dinner and he says "I found our first dance song" Which was really really strange because he never has anything to say about wedding planning. I said "whats that" and he puts this CD in and puts this song on. Our life consists of two weeks together, two weeks (at least) apart. I started crying, he is so sweet.

        One of my all-time favorite Love-type songs is a fairly rare one called "Love you till the end" by The Pogues. I love it, you should take a listen, but ultimately it has to be a song relatable to both of you, something that brings back a memory or two.

            We knew it would be Sister Hazel but we just decided this weekend which one for sure...


            Sister Hazel's "Everything Else Disappears"

            Remember to breathe
            Remember to hold your head high
            Remember to smile some
            And just listen a while

            You've practiced enough yeah
            That's what I told myself
            So I nervously asked you your name
            And that's when the world seemed to stop

            And I died when you looked up like that
            Took my breath away
            Knocked me flat on my back
            I knew right then and there
            In that first second stare
            It would be a while

            Everything falls out of focus
            You walk through the door
            And one thing that's clear to me
            Helplessly hopeless
            I'm all right with that
            In a room full of people
            Everything else disappears

            We talked for hours
            About the sun and moon
            How it chases her round and round
            It's just trying to light up her face

            And we sat on your car
            While the light from the stars
            Poked holes in the sky
            And you told me the tales of your heart
            And how it'd been broken

            And I cried when you talked about that
            Yeah what I would've given to take it all back for you
            Right then and there
            In that first second stare
            I knew we would be a while

            [Chorus]

            I thought that I'd known you forever
            I felt like I'd finally come home
            After all of these lifetimes
            You still take my breath away

            [Chorus]

              as of right now, this is ours. my FH and i don't agree on much music (haha or much else ... we're total opposites, yet somehow it works). i searched high and low for something i thought he'd actually approve of, and this was the winner!

              he's irish (originally wanted to wear a kilt, but not since the wedding moved to mexico, haha), and a huge hockey fan (it's the love song at the end of the movie "mystery alaska"). once i told him it was an irish band AND a song from a hockey movie, he was sold, haha!

              even still, i just searched nearly every song you guys listed on this forum, to see if i could find something even better, or just add to the pre-ceremony music. some great ideas here!

                I am thinking about John Legend, "Stay with You." It's just so beautiful to me. I actually heard the day after we got engaged and I teared up. lol

                Lyrics:
                "Stay With You"

                We've been together for a while now
                We're growing stronger everyday now
                It feels so good and there's no doubt
                I will stay with you as each morning brings sunrise
                And the flowers bloom in springtime
                On my love you can rely
                And I'll stay with you

                Oh I'll stay with you through the ups and the downs
                Oh I'll stay with you when no one else is around
                And when the dark clouds arrive
                I will stay by your side
                I know we'll be alright
                I will stay with you

                Though relationships can get old
                They have the tendency to grow cold
                We have something like miracle
                Yeah, and I'll stay with you

                Oh I'll stay with you through the ups and the downs
                Oh I'll stay with you when no one else is around
                And when the dark clouds arrive
                I will stay by your side
                I know we'll be alright
                I will stay with you

                And there will be heartaches and pains, yes it will
                But through it all, we will remain
                In this life, we all know
                Friends may come, and they may go
                Through the years I know
                I will stay
                And in the end I know that we'll find
                Love so beautiful and divine
                We'll be lovers for the lifetime, yeah
                And I'll stay with you
                I will stay with you

                Oh I'll stay with you through the ups and the downs
                Oh I'll stay with you when no one else is around
                And when the dark clouds arrive
                I will stay by your side
                I know we'll be alright
                I will stay with you
                Everything will be fine
                And I will stay with you
                Through the end of time
                I will stay with you

                  Our first dance will be to 'One Shining Moment' by Diana Ross. The words are so beautiful, and Don (my fiance) loves Diana! This song is very special to us as the words could have been written just for us! Awwwww!
