    God there are ssssoooooo many perfect songs!! I really don't know where to start! Wanting something a bit different though - we'll have fun ploughing through the music collection - Bren's choice was "smack my bitch up" haha - obviously he was joking - I hope haha xx

    I'm struggling with this too. We like quite a few songs but it's me being fussy because I want something modern but not too popular that everybody uses the same!

    Haha Fran! X

    We are really struggling, as we don't have a song that's "our song", plus we have completely different taste in music. Beyonce's Crazy in Love was number 1 when we got together, but as much as I love it, it's not a song I'd choose for a first dance.

    Yeah it's James Blunt Bonfire heart, we have been thinking about that one. I love it and think it would be perfect, fiancé agreed at first but seems to have gone off it.... thinks it might be too upbeat (but that's what I like to it)

    We have the added factor that the band will be playing it as well, fiancé likes ''your song'' which I really like, but I'm unsure how the band would sound playing it especially with there being so many versions of it, I think bonfire heart is a safer bet for the band...

    But we have just under 18 months, we might decide on another song or a new song might be released before then.

    For us, this was probably the easiest thing to decide upon.

    It was when one of my BM's asked us when we were down the pub one night and we both said the same song haha. We hadn't even discussed it!

    We are having Snow Patrol Feat Martha Wainwright- Set The Fire To The Third Bar

    We did! We wanted something that hadnt been done to death but still had nice lyrics etc. We literally spent a week (after work) just listening to songs. I left it up to aaron as he was the fussy ome. He narrowed it down to 2 and I picked. Jack Johnson better together. Although we have our first dance lesson next week so well see how it goes!

    we've changed ours so a few times but I think we finally have the one lol I originally loved you & me by lifehouse then we moved onto speechless by the veronicas but my fiancé thought this was too cheesy even though I loved it. The song we've both love now is just be by Paloma faith. It suits us so well. It's the most honest love song I have ever heard. It says let's be unhappy together cause there's no one I'd rather be unhappy with. It also says let's see each other when we are exposed and weak but my favourite line is "I always thought it would be dreamy by I wouldn't be happy that way" xx

    We've chosen Elvis - Wonder of You. OH is a fan and used to sing his songs to me (many moons ago). The lyrics say it all too. We only have two other 'our songs'; Glory of Love by Peter Cetera or Heaven by DJ Sammy, neither of which we liked for a first dance.

    Think people wont expect our choices for music at all, which I like.

    I love the wonder of you, it would possibly be an option for us, I'd also like it for walking down the aisle if we weren't having the organ

    Ohhh Charlie that's actually a good shout, I downloaded the new Elvis album the other day. I love some of the suggestions here, lots of people seem to be having Ed Sheeran or Ellie Goulding. Definitely out of Ed or a song by Jack Pack that me and my future hubby fell in love with [link removed]

    I've chosen Ellie Goulding - "how long will I love you" as it has meaning to both of us and our daughters. And he wants to add one but won't tell me

    Not sure we'll have a first dance as such as we are going abroad. Every time I bring up the subject of a party when we get back its swifty glossed over....
    We don't have any particular song that means much to us, so we'd just have to pick a dance then a song to go wit it I suppose
