wedding music songs

I was asked recently for some suggestions for nice wedding ballads. Here are my quick suggestions, drawn from ones I've done at weddings or have thought would be ideal. I'll try to add to the list if I think of others, or if folks suggest some good ones to me.

"Grow Old Along With Me" as performed by Mary Chapin Carpenter (John Lennon)

"I Will Be Here" - Steven Curtis Chapman

"He Is Good" - Carrie Underwood - Sung from a daughter to mother about wedding day - A fairly new song but I predict is being done/will be done at MANY weddings

"When I Said I Do" - Clint Black (best as a duet but could work as solo)

"Something That We Do" - Clint Black (similar sentiments to 1 Corinthians 13)

"The Gift of Love" - Hal Hopson's setting of 1 Corinthians 13 to tune of "The Water Is Wide"

"Beautiful In My Eyes" - Joshua Kadison

"Bless the Broken Road" – Carrie Underwood sings a nice solo version

"Valentine" - Martina McBride

"Here, There and Everywhere" - Beatles

"One Hand, One Heart" - from Westside Story

"The Wedding Song (There is Love)" - Still a goodie!

AND, a couple of unique choices - think outside the box!
The Wedding Song - By Tret Fure - It's on iTunes, on her "My Shoes" album. This is a REALLY beautiful wedding song! It's a shame not many folks know about it. (Tret is a very successful indie folk artist.) (If sheet music is required folks could ask me and I can work on getting this accomplished with Tret's permission since I create sheet music as a freelance, and I do know Tret personally.)

Ahem...My tune "Perfectly" has been used at weddings and it can be sampled on iTunes (from my album "Second Wind"). Here is a video link I did for someone after her wedding, and it shows the lyrics:
(I could provide sheet music for this tune.)
