    Post it here!!!
    It could be the song that your loved one walked down the aisle to, or the track you chose for your first dance!

    My missus and I chose this track for our first dance. We both love this song. It’s by a fellow South Yorkshireman, well known in the UK but probably not across the pond. Anyways, Enjoy!

    Here's the one that played as we walked into the reception:

    Here's the one she wanted to dance to. I wanted the original, but no dice:

    During the signing of the register in church we had a local Brass Band playing 'A Whiter Shade of Pale'. I was deputy bandmaster of the band at the time and I had arranged the music myself. That was over 35 years ago - still married, but no longer play in the Brass Band.

    Yeah, Canon in D was played. I would have preferred the James Galway version, but what did I know?

    I wrote our wedding song, and a friend (with a great voice) sang it while my dad accompanied him on the keyboard.

    My weddings' music was My Way, played in keyboards.

    The bride and me both were thinking about Sid Vicious version. The rest of family, about Sinatra or so...

    Poor people. They will never know the truth.

    I'd rather relate the song going through my head as we walked out of divorce court...."Ding Dong the Witch is Dead" from The Wizard of Oz....

    I'm getting married on August 18.

    She is coming down the aisle to the Beatle's "Here Comes the Sun", played by a good friend of mine on an acoustic guitar.

    Our first dance will be to Stephen Kellogg's "My Favorite Place".

    "Love Is All Around" by the Troggs.

    A few months earlier, we had seen the movie "Four Weddings and A Funeral" with Andie McDowell. The Wet, Wet, Wet version of the "Love Is All Around" was featured in the movie. My now wife loved it. I immediately explained to her that what she had just heard was a mediocre version of a fantastic song.

    When we got back to my house, I pulled out my 45 RPM record of the original Troggs version of "Love Is All Around". A few months later, the original, classic version right off of my scratchy 45 RPM from 1968 was recorded onto a cassette so it could be played at our wedding. The rest is history.

    I still can't stand that Wet, Wet, Wet version

    We didn't have a wedding song. No dancing either, because we had a small wedding with 11 people, including the two of us. I guess Here Comes The Bride was played on a piano when she walked in.

    I got married in 1974. Our wedding song was What Are You Doing for the Rest of Your Life. I didn't get a vote. Come to think of it, I can't remember the last time I got a vote.

    The first two I don’t remember.
    The last one was Thank God And Greyhound by Roy Clark.
