    I can have no more than 5 lest there is a riot from the family who doesn't "get" Morrissey.

    So what 5 should I pick?
     
  2. "Will Never Marry"
    "My Love Life"
    "I Know it's Over"
    "Oh Well, I'll Never Learn"
    "I Don't Owe You Anything"

    :D

    Actually, we did play one of these at ours. I just won't tell you which one.

    hehe - i would prefer 'i know it's over' :D

    but seriously:
    how about 'let the right one slip in' ???
     
  4. I thought about that one. And "Wide to Receive."

    don't invite them, and besides it is YOUR wedding so have what you want.

    Funnily enough I was discussing this with a friend on Saturday...
    We went for There Is A Light... as a first dance song
    Others maybe:

    You're Gonna Need Someone On Your Side
    No-One Can Hold A Candle To You (I know its a cover but meh)
    Let Me Kiss You
    Whatever Happens, I Love You

    Ha!
    Seriously, I believe There is a Light is a nice suggestion, Please, Please works, and I would suggest:
    Stop Me...-danceable and people may know it from the Mark Ronson version
    This Charming Man-nice for your groom
    Sing Your Life-danceable, uplifting etc.
    I Know it's gonna' happen someday-old fashion sounding and hopeful

    Congratulations and have a wonderful day:)
     
  11. In all seriousness, we did play "There Is a Light That Never Goes Out," "Interlude," and one of the 5 songs from my earlier post. We may have played "Hand in Glove," too; I can't remember, and I can't find the playlist. We had the world's awesomest DJ.

    I think that the Bride should walk down the aisle to the sounds of...

    "Your The One For Me, Fatty"

    I refused to do all that. My only "demand" on the big day.

    Whenever I go to weddings, I cringe when the "Happy Couple" do the first dance.

    Am I a bad person?

    I wont share you. ( obviously)
    Heaven knows I'm miserable now.
    Do your best don't worry.
    I like you.
    If you don't like me don't look at me (specially for the in-laws)
