DP and I can't agree - he wants Enrique Iglesias - Hero hmm and I would like Michael Buble's Everything. Neither of us will budge so are looking for a compromise grin!

Stereophonics - The first time I saw your face

followed by....

Chas 'n' Dave - In sickness and in Health!!

You could always have both songs?

Van Morrison - have I told you lately (that I love you)

And one our first anniversary I found a card with the lyrics on it! How very thoughtful of me grin

We had this - cheeeesy...but I love it

IN hindsight, I might have had Phil Collins 'Groovy Kind of Love '

We didn't have one but a friend of a friend had the theme from home and away.

And that was only because she wasn't allowed to have mistletoe and wine. (It was 2 weeks ago!)

Songbird - Stevie Nicks version.

Suwoo - your song is right up our street! We danced to it at our wedding too, just not the first song.

Have I told you lately by Van the Man.

We had The Wonder of You sung by an Elvis impersonator. My sister got married a few years later and had.... The Wonder of You sung by an Elvis impersonator.

We are a very classy family.

PoinsettiasScareMe Fri 24-Jul-09 09:29:14

Hoobastank - The Reason

MadameCastafiore Fri 24-Jul-09 09:31:57

You're the Love of My Life by Carly Simon.

Was written about her son but the words are veautiful and I dodn't want a cheesy pop song or bloody Van Morrison.

Pinkjenny Fri 24-Jul-09 11:18:34

We had a song called, 'Always be right there' by Bryan Adams.

Loved it.

NellieTheEllie Fri 24-Jul-09 11:23:29

it must be love - madness.

Chasing Cars - Snow Patrol.

My BIL had the Spanish version of "Hero" at his wedding.

He did however load it onto my ipod to play it, so there was an outside chance that their first song would actually have been "Wish" by Nine Inch Nails.

Our first was Mack the Knife, the original German version sung by Lotte Lenya, because our first date had been a trip to the NFT to see the Threepenny Opera.

My mum told me off afterwards for being a smartarse, but I figured you don't have to be slushy at your own wedding.

lambanana Fri 24-Jul-09 11:38:00

We had Simon and Garfunkel's bridge over troubled water.

Sagacious Fri 24-Jul-09 11:40:02

Lou Reed.. perfect day

sweetnitanitro Fri 24-Jul-09 11:56:05

Frank Sinatra- Fly me to the Moon. And then as our last dance we had You Belong to Me by Dino. We love the Rat Pack grin You could have both, the last dance is just as slushy!

MamaVoo Fri 24-Jul-09 14:46:40

Nobody Does It Better by Carly Simon. Agree you should have one as your last dance. We had Happy Together by the Turtles. I always hate it when the DJ plays New York New York at the end of weddings.

fatzak Fri 24-Jul-09 14:53:19

We had "I'm in the mood for love" - the Jools Holland and JK version. The last song we didn't ask for but the DJ played "Don't Marry her ** me " by the Beautiful South!
