Wedding music

Posting here as traffic is higher

I need some ideas for songs for our wedding. I need to complile a playlist that also has to be on cd (so I'm going to have to download them unless anyone has any ideas, the venue has said has to be cd annoyingly or I would do a playlist on amazon)

I want nice acoustic songs I have a few modern songs but happy for something a bit older or a song that isn't an acoustic song but has a really good acoustic version I can download

Here's what I have so far (I know it's not a lot!!)

Jamie Lawson wasn't expecting that
Ed Sheehan thinking out loud
Ed Sheehan Lego house
Somewhere over the rainbow Eva Cassidy
First day of my life bright eyes
To make you feel my love Adele
Heartbeats Jose Gonzales
James Arthur say you won't let go
Nathan Sykes over and over

Somewhere over the rainbow I'd like to walk down as I think it's a really pretty song to, so songs that fit to walk out and also signing the register as well

ETA James Arthur will be our first dance, so will probably avoid that song.

Thanks again!!

Damien Rice!

We got together in 2005 so we put some songs from that year in.

I had chosen:

Guest arrival:
Various pan pipes songs (I weirdly like them) One of the songs was theme tune off Godfather (I liked the song and thought it was amusing to have a wedding)

I walked down the aisle to Pachelbel Canon D (something I picked out as a child)

I walked out to "Elton John - Can You Feel the Love Tonight"

During the meal, I had bought a disney instrumental CD (main disney songs but instrumental).

First Dance was Truly Madly Deeply by Savage Garden.

Word of warning:- I made a copy of all the songs I wanted in order but the hotels player wouldn't recognise it (I had tested it with various players beforehand). Luckily, I had the original CDs on the day to hand.
