    I think I'm gonna go with Shania Twain - Your still the one. It fits our story. Dan and I went to school together. We dated and like everybody after they get out of school, they lose touch. I married some else had kids and got divorced. While chatting to classmates about an upcoming class reunion, I reconnected with Dan on Reunion.com. We started dating and here we are. So after all these years he is still the one. lol

      We went with The Calling where ever you go...well for one minute then kung fu fighting, twist and shout, good time rock and roll, I like big butts, cotton eye joe, YMCA and back to the calling.
      It was a blast, only a two guest knew it was coming and the rest thought it was great!!
      Like our first kiss all over again

      I think I posted this a long time ago, but it merits a repeat, lol, IMO... but our first dance was What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life by Barbara Streisand. It is soooo beautiful and is perfect for a wedding... and most importantly its slow so for all of those two left feet grooms it won't trip them up.
      YouTube - Barbra Streisand - What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life?

        Ours will be David Gray's "This Years Love" - it reminds me of when we first started dating...we slow-danced in his kitchen to it on our first Valentine's Day!

          I absolutely love this song! We're using it as our song to walk out of the church to. I think it really captures the lighthearted feel of a destination wedding!

            And for OUR song ... I just found it yesterday actually! After falling in love with Jason Mraz's "I'm Yours" I downloaded his album and stumbled across this song:


            The words are perfect and the song is gorgeous ... and I can't wait. It brings tears to my eyes already!!
            I absolutely love the Lucky song! Thanks for posting that!

            Currently my top picks are:
            1. Lucky - Jason Mraz
            2. Lost in the Moment - Big and Rich
            3. When you say nothing at all - Ronan Keating
            4. Marry Me - Amanda Marshall

            Take a look at the Amanda Marshall lyrics - they are so beautiful and perfect for a wedding:
            I wanna laugh
            Until I cry
            Wake up with you each day 'till the day that I die
            Let's go to New Orleans
            And watch the parade
            Take funny pictures, eat jambalaya, and drink lemonade
            And when the day is finally over
            And we stumble home
            Before we sleep
            Baby, marry me

            I wanna drive
            Until we get lost
            Lie in a field staring up at the sky
            While you point out the Southern Cross
            Somehow I know
            Without asking why
            That you love me more in a minute
            Than anyone could in a lifetime

            Dancing in the parking lot
            While the band plays inside
            Sweep me off my feet
            Baby, marry me

            We don't need no preacher man
            Readin' from the Good Book
            And I don't want no fancy dress
            Ain't no ceremony for the vows that I took
            From the moment I met you
            I have been blessed

            So let's make a toast
            And drink up the wine
            Here's to you lying here next to me
            Until the end of time

            Wherever you are
            I wanna be
            And anything that means anything to ya
            Means everything to me

            Sneakin' out the back door
            While they're throwing the rice
            And they'll talk for weeks
            But we're all we need

            So baby, if you're free
            Marry me
            Baby, marry me
            Marry me

                  We thought it would be hilarious and get people pumped to dance. I hope we don't chicken out.
                  That was awesome!!! I am glad you wet through with it and I am sure your guests loved it.

                    that was cool, my FI can't dance, the one time we danced together he stepped all over my feet. I always thought the saying "two left feet" was silly but now I know it is true there really are people out there that absolutely can't dance.
                    Lucky me
                    well maybe I can teach him some basic moves before our first dance at our AHR
