I am looking for a good rock/emo/indie song for my first dance song with my future bride…please help!?

by DIY wedding planner on December 29, 2011

My fiance gave me only one task for our upcoming wedding. That task is to pick our wedding song. She and I have very similar tastes in music and I would like that to be reflected in our first dance. I have already come up with a short list. Please help me expand it.

Here are some of the bands and songs Ive already thought of!

Sum 41 – With Me
Lifehouse – You and Me, Everything, Hangin by a Moment
Matchbook Romance
“Good Morning Beautiful ”
DashboardConfessional
Seconhand Serenade – Vulnerable
Snow Patrol – Chasing Cars
The Starting Line
Blue October – Calling You
The Beatles – I Will
Painting By Chagall – The Weepies
Red Jumpsuit – Your Guardian Angel
Tom Waits – Picture In a Frame
Plain White Tees – Unconditional Love

owen duff – any captain worth his due (“any captain worth his due knows with a crew like you he’s on a voyage that cannot fail”)
the silver seas – we’ll go walking (a song about two lovers walking in the rain in autumn – this song is in 3/4, it might be easier to dance to)
the wannadies – you and me sing (this song is sort of slow, then the chorus rocks) this song is from the romeo + juliet soundtrack

I wouldn’t do I Will . . it doesn’t exactly fit to me. I’m not sure about the others cause I haven’t heard most of them.

You and Me ~ Lifehouse

Most definitely! I have always thought that this song was very fitting for a wedding. I get a picture in my head every time I hear it. When I hear the lyrics – There is you and me and all of the people…I don’t know why I can’t take my eyes off of you. It makes me think of a bride and groom dancing on their wedding day. There is a room full of people but the groom just doesn’t notice because he is mesmorized by his bride’s beauty! Perfect song!!!

Congratulations :0)
