Wedding Songs

I have had a couple of readers ask me about wedding song suggestions. I am currently struggling with this as well. My band has asked me for a list of songs for:

Introduction Song
First Dance- Our wedding song
Wedding Party Song
Father/Daughter Dance
Mother/Son Dance
First Dance
Cake Cutting
Garter Toss
Bouquet Toss

Where does one even begin. I know a bunch of songs I like, but choosing the one I want for each is a little tough.

Here are a few of my favorites:
At Last- Etta James
Two Step-Dave Matthews Band
Girls Just Want to Have Fun- Cyndi Lauper
The Wedding Song- Bob Dylan
Sugar, Sugar- The Archies
The Sweetest Thing-U2
Everlasting Love-Natalie Cole
I Got You Babe-Sonny & Cher
In My Life- The Beatles
Can You Feel The Love Tonight- Elton John
I'll Be- Edwin McCain

I would love to hear your suggestions..Enjoy!


  1. We got engaged in a cabin named "Have I Told You Lately". That's how we chose our first dance song. Try thinking of something that significant to you two.

  2. Oh man, music is one of my fave discussion topics :) Right now I am kind of obsessing over pretty much anything by Vitamin String Quartet ... their style gives every single song they create an air of romance.

  3. Those are great... i love etta james... also that song that Ellen/Portia used was pretty awesome. Ohhh... your list is impressive thus far... Our first dance will be to "walk the line" but the slower (levi's commercial - esque) type version...

  4. I always liked Paul McCartney's 'This Never Happened Before' and 'It Only Takes A Moment' from Hello Dolly
