Help Me Brainstorm: Love Songs!

As my wedding day approaches in just a little over 2 months, my fiance and I have been thinking of songs to be sang and played during the ceremony and reception. We both love old slow jams from the 90's and new songs as well. We'll be having mixtures of songs from Jason Mraz (to give that summer wedding feel :P), Side A (a Filipino Band), Corrine Bailey Rae, and more.
Here's where I need your help - Many of us grew up with the same love songs and i don't want to miss any good ones! We'll have music during the ceremony, reception, couple slideshow, and dance (for the slow songs) so we'll need lots of songs! :D

What are your favourite love songs??? 
It can be slow jams or fun/happy tunes (like that of Jason Mraz)

By the way, for those of you who were wondering which child I was in the kindergarten picture in my last post ("Kindergarten Kym", read here), i circled me for you! click here. :)

Ooooh there you are Kindergarten Kym! :D

Hmmm the first song that came to mind is Train's Marry Me :) Gosh I feel like I've never listened to love songs in ages! I'll tweet you once I've thought of some. Expect a barrage of tweets from me haha love yah! :)

oh gosh. my mind just went blank.
"Feels like home" Chantal Kreviazuk
"She is love" Parachute
"Just haven't met you yet" Michael Buble (play this during pictures of you two growing up!)
"you remind me of home" Benjamin Gibbard
"Say Hey" Michael Fanti
"Never Let You Go" Third eye blind
"Rush" Ferras"
"You Got Me" Colbie Caillat

and "In My Life" The Beatles!

Hi Kym,

I don't know if you know "Kobukuro" but I love their songs ;) (Japanese)

The image - Now I realize it's you ;) You are cute!!!

Kalmo said...

Hmm I like Sugar Pie Honey Bunch, such a cute song!

RicAdeMus said...

I like Kalmo's suggestion.

If you want a few REAL oldies, "All the Way" is good and "Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I'm Yours"...and "Something" by the Beatles (that would have to be to you), or "The Best is Yet to Come", or the all-time #1 wedding song:
"We've Only Just Begun" to live, white lace and promises, a kiss for luck and we're on our way. LOL!

"I loved Her First" for your dad.

RYC: I don't check out girls, I see them, but I don't check them out. It frustrates my friends when we're together and makes K happy. =)

RicAdeMus said...

Oh, and "In My Life"--that's one of my all-time favs.

Lei said...

"At Last" :)

GretchTM said...

I bet you are super excited for your wedding. I am a wedding photographer and I just love weddings. Good luck finding songs. It seems like a tough decision with so many great songs out there. :) Thanks for the sweet comment on my blog. I'm now following your blog. :)

Nikolett said...

"All My Life" by K-Ci and JoJo is a MUUUUUUST. Grew up loving that song and belting it at every opportunity.

And if you don't have "Summer of '69" on there ... for shame, Patty, for shame if you don't LOL. I'm sure when (if? when? yes?) we meet up next month we can make a whole list up :)

Nashe^ said...

Michael jackson's "The Way You Make Me Feel"!!!! And I Swear by Boyz II Men! Haha. I can't think of others at the moment but "Feels like home" Chantal Kreviazuk/Edwina Hayes would be amazing :)

Yeri said...

Yikes! I feel like I'm taking a pop quiz. Can't think of ANYTHING at the moment except of John Legend "Save Room". I'll come back when I think of more!!

I agree with All My Life. I feel like that was played EVERYWHERE. And anything by Boys II Men. And something by Earth Wing & Fire!
