So [livejournal.com profile] shreena and I have been thinking about music to accompany our civil wedding. Somehow, we have not been immediately won over by the Register Office's recommended pop music: "Love is All Around", followed by "(Everything I Do) I Do it for you" and finishing with "Perfect Day".

We'd quite like some music that we like and that fits into a wedding ceremony nicely. We're looking for at least three songs, one each for entrance, exit and signing the register. We've got some ideas already, which are listed below, but we're sure that there must be some perfect songs that we're not thinking of - so we're appealing to you for your suggestions! Any ideas for folky songs appropriate to a wedding?

To give you an idea of our musical taste, we both like Oysterband, the Levellers, and Julie Fowlis. Our ideas for possible songs so far are:

    "I Promise You" - Show of Hands
    "After Rain" - Oysterband
    "Street of Dreams" - Oysterband
    "(All I Have to Do is) Dream" - R.E.M. / The Everly Brothers
    "Kathy's Song" - Simon and Garfunkel

I'm quite tempted, but we'd clearly need to find an instrumental version - [livejournal.com profile] shreena and I would have a lot of explaining to do if anyone caught any of the lyrics!

It would be hard to explain the giggling congregation if you had an instrumental version...

In addition to the points that are raised by [livejournal.com profile] quizcustodet, I wonder if it might have too many references to God and/or priests in it for a civil wedding. They are scary strict about that.

Go and wrap yourself around the soundtrack to Juno - something like "Anyone Else But You" or "All I Want Is You" might do you nicely.
