Thread Name: Wedding songs needed, non folk!!
Subject: RE: Wedding songs needed, non folk!!
I see some of the ones on my list(s) were suggested while I was looking up links.

Here's a list I found that's supposed to be currently popular wedding songs.   Some have the same titles as some standards or oldies from the '50s and '60s, so I'm not sure if they're new songs or covers of those older hits/standards.   
E.g., "Have I Told You Lately That I Love You," "Always," and "From This Moment On" are titles that each represent at least two completely different love/wedding songs.

Anyway, here's the list:

98 Degrees - I Do
Ace Of Base - Its A Beautiful Life
Alanis Morissette - Head Over Feet
All For One - So Much In Love
Allison Krauss - When You Say Nothing At All
Amy Grant - When I Look Into Your Heart (feat. Vince Gill)
Andy Gibb - I Just Want To Be Your Everything
Anna Nalick - Forever Love
Backstreet Boys - As Long As You Love Me
The Beatles - Here, There & Everywhere
Billy Joel - Just The Way You Are
Bob Carlile - Butterfly Kisses
Bon Jovi - Thank You For Loving Me
Boyz to Men - I Swear
Boyzone - I Love The Way You Love Me
Christian Music - Love Will Be Our Home (Christian Wedding Songs)
Clint Blank - When I Said I Do
Dave Matthews Band - Love of My Life (feat. Carlos Santana)
Dido - Thank You
DJ Sammy - Heaven
Don Henley - On My Wedding Day
Jennifer Rush - Power Of Love
Elvis Presley - I Can't Help Falling In Love With You
Elton John - Your Song
Hank Snow - With This Ring I Thee Wed
Jim Brickman & Michael W. Smith - You Are The Love Of My Life
John Denver - Perhaps Love
Josh Groban - I Want to Spend My Lifetime Loving You (feat. Tina Arena)
K-Ci & JoJo---All My Life (Same as the Ingram-Ronstadt song?)
Keith Urban - Making Memories of Us
Kenny Loggins - Danny's Song (I'm So In Love With You, Honey) - 1st and last verses
Life House - I Live My Life For You
Lifehouse - Hanging By A Moment
Lifehouse - You And Me
Lifehouse - You Belong To Me
Lonestar - Good Morning Beautiful
Mandy Moore - I Want To Be With You
Martina Mcbride - I Love You (Runaway Bride Soundtrack)
Martina McBride - Valentine
Mary Chapin Carpenter - Grow Old Along With Me
Michael Buble - You Belong To Me (probably the old Jo Stafford hit)
Moulin Rouge Soundtrack - Come What May
Nat King Cole & Natalie Cole - Unforgetable
N'Sync - This I Promise You
Randy Travis - Forever And Ever, Amen
Rick Astley - Together Forever
Savage Garden - Truly Madly Deeply
Sawyer Brown - Thank God For You
Sawyer Brown - With This Ring
Shania Twain - From This Moment On
Stacy Q - Two Of Hearts
Surface - Shower Me With Your Love
The Carpenters - We've Only Just Begun
The Turtles - So Happy Together
Tim McGraw and Faith Hill - It's Your Love
Sade - By Your Side

Then there's the old Motown song "The Way You Do The Things You Do" (covered reggae-style by UB40) or one of my favorites, "I Can't Help Myself" (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch).

When my brother was getting married (again) recently and looking for wedding songs, I jokingly suggested "Wild Thing" (the Trogs?).    He actually USED it (a short clip) as he and our dad (the minister) and the ushers entered the chapel! *g*
