Wedding songs in lure of Valentines day.

Most women dream of their wedding day from the time they are little girls. The dress, the flowers, the place, the season and probably most importantly the man. For me though it has always been about the music (ok and the man) i think music has such a powerful presence at any occasion so today I am going to share my four wedding song choices in celebration of Valentines Day.

Signing the Registry: You and me - Lifehouse
Walking out of the church: Burn your name - Powderfinger

What were your wedding songs or what do you want them to be?

Nb: I am not engaged or getting married I just wanted to share a little of my wedding dream


  1. Walking down the aisle- Love Song from the Franco Zefferelli's Romeo and Juliet
    Signing the register- lots of lovely Vivaldi played by our string quartet
    Coming into the reception- Would you believe it was music from Star Wars? (it's hubby's favourite! I think it was the triumphant music they play at the end of Return of the Jedi!)
    First dance- We Have All the Time in the World, by Louis Armstrong (from one of those old James Bond films)

    It was all wonderful. Loved my wedding day so so much! Thanks for helping me to remember a bit of it...

    PS: Your new look is great! I love the ribbon round the middle...

  2. I love, love, love your list!

    I was really bummed that we couldn't use "modern" music since we were married in a Catholic church, but I walked down the aisle to "Canon in D" - it's always been my fave:)

  3. You and Me and Samson are two of my favourite love songs! Great choices :)
    I haven't even really thought about it to be honest. I haven't been to a wedding since I was 8 so I've never been prompted to. I have however decided I want 'Hallelujah' at my funeral. Tells you something about my life, gosh.


  4. oh i adore this! music is so wonderful and you are right its so powerful!
    i love that you day dream about the music on your wedding day.

  5. I love Regina Spektor but holy moly I have no idea what I would play for a wedding!!! probably all like heavy metal songs done in string quartets to throw everyone

  6. Beautiful list! I think it's great that you have already figured out what songs you would like. I made up my mind a few days before the wedding. I'll post about it soon. :)

  7. i saw in your last post that you went to a burlesque show. i went to my first this year, too. i loved it! it was a burlesque performance of alice in wonderland.


  8. i'm one of these weird girls who isn't into weddings all that much. i do enjoy being a guest and all of the festivities, but as for planning one myself... eek! i'd rather elope and then make an announcement afterwards... and maybe have a few of my nearest and dearest around to celebrate with, at my mom's house or something, LOL.
    as for wedding songs... i wouldn't even know where to start.
    but... i can share a nice anecdote! a good friend of mine is engaged to marry one of my all time best friends... and as a surprise, she actually got up the gumption to contact one of his favourite musicians - Eef Barzelay from the band Clem Snide - to ask if he would play at their wedding! and he replied and said he would! isn't that awesome?!

    and now, a few words to describe how i see you, dear Megan:

    genuine. joyful. thoughtful. perceptive. authentic.


  9. "Most women dream of their wedding day from the time they are little girls."

    Whoa- seriously? Most women do this? Zowie.

    I take heart from Shellbell's comment - and I did what she referenced: elope and make an announcement afterwards. I'm not into weddings either, and I certainly never pictured mine as a kid. Maybe that's what gave me the freedom to do something different, and something my beloved and I both really loved and cherish now... something for just the two of us, with no one else around.

  10. Haha maybe its just my friends that are like that.
