lol, I love “Skinny Love,” but it’s not ideal for weddings, as the entire premise is one lover hoping that their failing relationship will “just last the year.”

Aside from that–are you asking for more songs, or asking which of the above are the best? More similar to what you listed:

“Love and Some Verses” – Iron & Wine (slow)
“Last of the English Roses” – Peter Doherty (possibly dinner?)
“Such Great Heights” – Iron & Wine cover (more beautiful–perfect for a slow dance. But the original by the Postal Service is more poppy and fun)
“No One’s Gonna Love You” – Band of Horses (similar to “Skinny Love,” but a bit more optimistic)
“All My Friends” – Franz Ferdinand cover (dance)
“Like a Friend” – Pulp (starts slow-ish, moves to dance) OR “Do You Remember the First Time?” – Pulp
“The Story” – Brandi Carlile
“Only Ones Who Know” – Arctic Monkeys (slow and sweet)
“I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor” – Arctic Monkeys (fast, dance)
“Eclipse (All Yours)” – Metric
“Crystalised” – The Xx
“Dance Me to the End of Love” – The Civil Wars
“Rhinestone Eyes” – Gorillaz (dance)
“The Mall & Misery” – Broken Bells
“Write About Love” – Belle & Sebastian
“Love You Madly” – Cake (dance)
“I Like You So Much Better When You’re Naked” – Ida Maria
“Young Blood” – The Naked & Famous (maybe the Sound of Arrows remix)
“Lions” – The Features (dance)
“To the End” – Blur
“Ghosts” – Laura Marling (folk)
“Kentucky Pill” – Johnny Flynn (folk, fun)
“Wreckin’ Bar (Ra Ra Ra)” – The Vaccines (dance–a LOT of fun)
“Under the Cover of Darkness” – The Strokes (dance–fast and fun)

I’ll post more as I think of them.
