Nowhere's close to getting married. But i had to plan one back when I was in high school for a project. These were some of my ideas.

First Dances:

"I'll Be" -Edwin McCain

I swear -Richard marx

Father's Dance:

Goodnight my Angel -Billy Joel

More I Cannot Wish You -Guys and Dolls

Butterfly Kisses -Bob Carlyle (sterotypical)

Y'know.... those are all good, hell, great choices. "I Swear", "Maybe I'm Amazed", "I'll Stand By You"

"From This Moment" et. al. But no-one, not a single soul will remember it. Because everyone uses those same songs. However...... If you used Alice Cooper's "I Love The Dead"? Your wedding will be remembered for generations. Imagine the look on your newly-minted in-law's faces...

Ok, I need you guys' help. Of course you all know I'm getting married next year. Megan and I have the equivalent of writers block when it comes to what songs to be played are a must at the wedding, and "our" song, is, of course, listed as one of the most popular (or overplayed) songs in history. (Eric Clapton's "Wonderful Tonight") I need your HELP!

Thanks by the way.

P.S.- By the way, don't be afraid to mention some more "modern", one hit wonder type stuff, possibly evem R&B.

A good place to check for songs is iTunes; they have lists of songs for every occasion-weddings, barbecues, you name it, they probably have a list. Also, think of some movies about weddings and look at their soundtracks.
