True Colours
Cindy Lauper

A lovely song about accepting the inner selves. :) Also, congrats!

Love is everywhere
Bob schnieder

One of the sweetest songs of people finding the right people for them.

Enjoy the Silence
Depeche Mode

An oldie' but a goodie'

You're My Best Friend
Queen

It's about you two.

Rule the World
Take That

This was mine and my husbands first dance. I first heard it from the credits in the movie Stardust and I thought it was the perfect song. Definitely something worth listening to.

The Rose
Bette Midler

Ok, had to leave a real suggestion.

Whoomp! There it is
Tag Team

Worked for my high school graduation, too.

Human
The Killers

I find this to be a very beautiful song overall and it would be very romantic for a slow dance.

You're My Best Friend
Queen

This was actually written by Queen's bassist John Deacon, to be played at his own wedding reception.

Less Talk More Rokk
Freezepop

A great way to set the tone for a good party.

Angel's Wings (Acoustic)
Social Distortion

It is an amazing song, very heartfelt, and I think you both will like it.

Trolololo
Trololo guy

TROLOLOLOLOLOLO

You Grew On Me
Tim Minchin

If you like a little comedy at your wedding, this song by Aussie comedian Tim Minchin is awesome. A very strange but sweet lovesong.

Somebody
Depeche Mode

My wife & I made this our first dance at our wedding.

Onward
Yes

This is a great song for the processional. The live version is particularly moving.

Welcome to Your Wedding Day
The Airborne Toxic Event

Really fun upbeat song. The title is just a bonus... Make certain you skip the preceding song; it's a major downer.

You are the One
Tri-Destiny

This was a song they wrote for a friends wedding (not mine). My husband surprised me by scheduling them for our reception. This is the song they played as we walked down the hill toward the picnic party and I (being the amazingly astute music noticing person that I am (NOT)) was halfway there before I figured out why the music sounded familiar. ...is a much better choice than my personal favorite song by them which is a filk song about Spock. Which they also played at my wedding. The incongruity of it along with my husband requesting it made me laugh tears.

Tetris theme
Various

I loved cutting the cake to this, and the crowd who knew the tune thought it was fun. Frank Sinatra played softly through the meal was perfect as well... I'm biased clearly.

Dein Anblick
Schandmaul

Well, since every song that I would suggest is basically already on your suggestion-list, I thought that maybe you'd like to hear something different, too.
This Song is one of the most beautifull german lovesongs I've ever listened to, even if it is not so well known outside Medieval/Metal- circles.
Translation:

If I had a brush to draw your countenance,
The glint of your eyes the lovely lips,
I'd draw the lash, the braw, your smile,
Like I've realized it in yonder hour

If I had a flute to play the tone,
Which tell of your grace and beauty,
I'd played the round dance of the heavens,
Like in the thoughts, that torment me since.

But neither pictures nor tones nor word,
Could describe what on yonder place,
Has happened with me, as I behold you,
You ignited the shine in yonder night

The sun, the stars carry lore of you,
Every breeze tells me about you,
Every breath, every step,
Carrys your name within it

If I had a quill to write the words,
Which enmesh you like silvery light,
I'd write of Love, of closenes, of hope,
And write this longing afield to the night

But neither pictures nor tones nor word,
Could describe what on yonder place,
Has happened with me, as I behold you,
You ignited the shine in yonder night

The sun, the stars carry lore of you,
Every breeze tells me about you,
Every breath, every step,
Carrys your name within it

I hope you have fun with it and with my lousy little translation ^^°

Fight For You
I Fight Dragons

Romantic in that super-hero/geeky way. Which is the best of ways. THE ABSOLUTE BEST. And it could probably be danced too.

Head Over Feet
Alanis Morissette

Reminds me of falling in love with my husband.
Also: "Stay in Love" by Jim's Big Ego, one of my fave bands. Smooth and cool slow dance

King of Spain
Moxy Fruvous

They're Canadian, they're awesome, and the song is ridiculously fun to dance to. (This song has been played at every wedding I've attended in the last ten years -- yes, my friends are all geeks.)

Do You Want To Know a Secret
Beatles

First, I always thought this should be a wedding song, just because no matter how two people tell each other that they love each other, it's nigh impossible to KNOW they love you the way you KNOW that you love THEM. But given that you held that "Secret" from each other for years and years, it seems especially appropo. Happiness!

Devil's Dance Floor
Flogging Molly

Always fun to have a good jig. ;p

Home
Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros

Geeks in Love
Lemon Demon

See title of song. I play this for my wife when I'm feeling particularly geeky, or she's acting such.

Tara
Fish

I want to be there in the morning, I want to wake up by your side.
If I can make it back I'll be there, if I can catch the early flight.
I'll bring you dragon's teeth from silver beaches, shells from Africa.
I'll give you China dolls and silken shawls, orchids for your hair,
Treasures drowned in sunken galleons, jewels from desert caves when I get there.

We'll see each other in the morning when the sun comes up
We'll see each other in the morning when the sun comes up
In the morning

I'll guard you from the monsters on the TV,
From the pirates in the corners of your dreams.
I'll keep you from the cold and safe from trolls, from the bad men while you play.
I'll hunt for crocodiles and snakes with smiles I'll keep them
Far away from your innocence in all it's wonder.

We'll see each other in the morning when the sun comes up
We'll see each other in the morning when the sun comes up
In the morning, in the morning, when the sun comes up

Do You Want To Date My Avatar?
The Guild
Wonderful Tonight
Eric Clapton

This is the song that Ron and I used for our "first dance" at our wedding. It suited us because my hair, which was blonder then that it is now, was also quite long at the time. :-)

Sink to the Bottom
Fountains of Wayne

I'm not sure how romantic they intended this song to be, but for some reason, I think it's one of the sweetest ones out there.

Enjoy the Silence
Depeche Mode

Sometimes you don't need words.

What I Really Want to Say
Stephen Curtis Chapman

This sums up how I feel about my wife...

Dance With Me
Orleans

My wife and I used that as our first dance. I made a whole CD that I gave to the DJ, actually... If you'd like the playlist, hit me up via email.

Stuck in the middle with you
Steeler's Wheel

The real question is 'Why not?'

I Won't Give Up
Jason Mraz

I'm not a huge Mraz fan, but this is one of those mushy songs you kind of like, even if this kind of music isn't your thing. And that's what weddings are for anyways. Songs you'll only listen to while you're making googly eyes at your sweetheart.

If You're Not the One
Daniel Bedingfield

Lyric heavy and slow: perfect for dancing at the reception. By far one of my favorite love songs. Congratulations you two! :)

Love Is In Bloom (Archie Remix)
Archie

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YKodfvV5Lm4
The title of the song says it all. This would be great for the reception.

Amaranthine
Amaranthe

Because more songs like this are needed.

Natural Edge
David Wilcox

There's enough cheesy wedding music around without me adding to it, so here's a taste of 1989 from a Canadian artist about being awesome together. *grins*

The Time Warp
The Rocky Horror Picture Show Soundtrack

Because it's awesome.

At Last
Etta James

It's such a lovely song about being with the right person who makes you feel whole.

You Married a Fool
Voltaire

Great song. If you don't know it you should definitely check it out.

Best Friend
Jason Chen

Very nice song, I reckon a bit of your story in this one.

You walk in my soul
Gary Numan

Give it a listen and youll see why.

The Way I Am
Ingrid Michaelson

Sweet song about a girl who loves her guy to the ends of the Earth for accepting her for all that she is.

Nightlife
Iamx

A great Song from a great Movie (Wir sind die Nacht).

At her side
In Legend

I think one of the best Lovesongs ever

Gelfling song & Love theme
Trevor Jones

both are from the sound track of The Dark Crystal They are nice to listen to . :-)

Truly Madly Deeply
Savage Garden

when you hear it you will know

The Luckiest
Ben Folds

This is the song my husband and I had our first dance to. It still brings happy tears to my eyes when I hear it.

She's always a woman to me
Billy Joel

A sweet song, if you like it I think it would be fitting. :)

Do You Realize
The Flaming Lips

It's just a lovely song, kinda dreamy, kinda to the point :)

Drops of Jupiter
Train

It was either this or Justin Beiber, and we know how much you enjoyed that.

-YorCompewter

Something
The Beatles

I think personally that this is one of the best and most moving songs the Beatles have done. I hope the day is everything you want it to be and more.

Feel Like Making Love
Bad Company

Does this really need any expliantion?

Picture in a frame
Tom Waits

This is the song we did the first dance to at our wedding :)

500 Miles
The Proclaimers

One of the sweetest songs ever without being saccharine.

Happy To Be Stuck With You
Huey Lewis And The News
Colorful
The Verve Pipe

This is the song that I played for my wife and I to dance to after our own marriage. They spelled "Colourful" wrong, but it really sums up how lucky I feel to have her.

Be Mine Tonight
Blackmore's Night

This was my "walk down the aisle" song in my wedding (which was a less then a week ago...), a lot of people loved it, it all depends on your style :)

Marry Me
Train

Because even my sometimes romantic-challenged bf thought it was a wonderful song! (and it says a lot, he is sweet:) )

From This Moment On
Shania Twain (w/ Bryan White)

Its practically wedding vows in a song.

I don't wanna miss a thing.
Aerosmith

You know it'll be sweet.

Anna begins
Counting Crows

Maybe the most beautiful song about being helplessly in love.

I said I loved you but I lied.
Michael Bolton

Its a beautifull song with a twist, the title is very deceiving.

Have I told you lately that i love you.
Van Morrison

Its a beautifull song and its also "our" song.

The Hooded Man
Clannad

If you are a fan of woods, this would be great :)

The Book of Love
The Magnetic Fields

Very sweet song.

I am nothing without you
Placebo

need I say more??

Oh perhaps the duet with David Bowie on Black market is the best version.

Toccata
Widor

I'm lucky to have lots of muso friends, one of whom played this at my wedding... and I'm not even religious... but I do love a good organ workout :)
No, seriously, it's a great piece of music - check here:
http://theomniscientmussel.com/2010/07/widor-toccata-from-symphony-no-5-video/

Vanilla Twilight
Owl City

It is one of the songs that my wife and I danced too at our wedding. It has a great melody, wonderful lyrics, and a tempo that is very good for a decent waltz.

Black is the Color
Gaelic Storm

A bit of a sad yet heart felt love song. Reminds me of the poem "My mistress's Eyes are nothing like the Sun." Heart felt and lyrical.

Music of the Night
Andrew Loyd Weber

One of the best love songs from Phantom. I sung it to my husband at our hand-fasting.

Anyone else but you
The Moldy peaches

Such a great, cute wee song about not being perfect but being perfect for the one who matters most. Definitely our favourite song,

Something I can never have
Trent Reznor

Best in the version seen in the Youtube video with (still) added to the title.

She Makes My Day
Robert Palmer

I know, any time someone says "Robert Palmer" all anyone can see is the women in the "Simply Irresistable" clip, shaking their collective things. But this... This sums up how I feel about my wife quite nicely...

Storybook Love
Mark Knopfler

The theme song to the movie The Princess Bride (my all-time favorite movie). Also, my husband and I used this as our first dance song at our wedding last year!

Army of Goblins
Nekrogoblikon

Goblins (race, not comic) themed music! Check out the band in general. Disclaimer: not for everyone.

A Kiss to Build a Dream On
Louis Armstrong

Not only romantic sounding, but it was the ending song of Fallout 2. Can't get more nerdy than that. ^_^

Thins can only get better
D:Ream

Song title says it all.

Thousand Mile Wish
Finger Eleven

A bit of a slower heavier song. But it's good.

I Don't Want To Set The World on Fire
The Ink Spots

Classic, beautiful, simple.

Another First Kiss
They Might Be Giants

TMBG usually do comedy/nerdy songs, this one is a little different and just quietly cute :)

L-O-V-E
Nat King Cole

This classic gets me every time I hear it :3

She
Abney Park

Lovely song by a really great band - lots of good choices for reception too.

Skullcrusher Mountain
Jonathan Coulton

Geeky goodness sure to horrify the elderly aunties.

pick one
The Double Clicks

I'm not too familiar with them (and to be honest, I quickly get annoyed with them), but a couple friends of mine recently found out about a band called The Double Clicks when they performed at the Stumptown Comics Fest. They sing about love and lots of nerdy things.

Waiting to Happen
Marillion

Just a lovely, romantic song.

Rockelbel's Canon
The Piano Guys

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LV5_xj_yuhs

Or pretty much anything by them.

Everybody Needs Somebody To Love
Blues Brothers

Congrats, everyone.

We've only just begun
The Carpenters

A beautiful song to mark this day, which is not only an accomplishment but also a new start.

I'm your moon
Jonathan Coulton

I love this song about Pluto and its moon. The chorus is romantic to the geek at heart, and it's a song that always makes me want to dance with my sweetheart. As a Bonus, it is one that is available free on the artist's website, http://www.jonathancoulton.com/store/downloads/

Cello Sonata Nos. 1 & 2
Brahms

These cello sonatas are simply beautiful, and if you're going to have more classical music than Canon in D I highly recommend them. If you desire more music let me know.

Book of Love
Peter Gabriel

Hey guys. This is the only wedding-ish song I can think of on short notice. All the best!

~Pharl

Canon in D minor
Pachelbel

This is a beautiful piece and is what was played during the prelude to the Bridal march song for my own wedding.

Critical Hit On My Heart
Marshall Gray
Ever Ever After
Carrie Underwood

It's my girlfriend's and my song, so it must be appropriate for something, right?
