    Elvis love songs for playlist at wedding?

    My little sister in-law is getting married in a few months and asked me for ideas on some good Elvis songs for her and her husband to dance to, and to just be played in general.

    I thought a great selection would be the Today, Tomorrow, and Forever duet.

    If anyone would like to submit some other suggestions, I'd appreciate it. She would like to use some less well known songs.

    Of course, "Can't Help Falling In Love" and "Love Me Tender" should be the first 2 Elvis standards played at the reception. For something faster, "High Heel Sneakers" and "Stranger in My Hometown."

    Don't forget to annouce that "Elvis has left the building" when the happy couple leave the reception for their honeymoon!!

    I had "Can`t Help Falling in Love" for our first wedding dance almost 18 years ago! Also the video the we had made of our wedding began with the song "Memories", while it showed photos of our childhood and courtship!

    I Need Somebody To Lean On.
    "When I was a child, ladies and gentlemen, I was a dreamer. I read comic books, and I was a hero in the movie. So every dream that I ever dreamed has come true a hundred times. I learned very early in life that without a song, the day would never end; without a song, a man ain't got a friend; without a song, the road would never bend; without a song. So I keep singing a song." - Elvis Presley

    Congrats to your sister in law ,Bobby ...



    I think of : ' Cant Help Falling In Love ' for her wedding song, have you seen that movie with Salma Hayek : ' Fools Rush In' ??? they had this song for their wedding scene , and I thought it was very romantic ...I almost picked: ' Something Blue' , I checked it first and then I realize the lyrics was bad at the end

    So very many, but I love that LtCarmen chose I've Got a Thing About You Baby! And don't forget Burning Love, Aint' That Loving You Baby or Paralyzed for great dance music!

    Just pretend, I'm holding you, and whispering things soft and low.

    Re: Elvis love songs for playlist at wedding?

    How I left this one off of my list is beyond me, but "I'll Hold You in My Heart" is an absolute MUST (and a personal favorite of mine)!!!!! Is there anything as moving as his rendition of this country weeper???

    I have to go with the old classic Hawaiian Wedding Song. I still get goose bumps from it.

    Congratulations on your sister in-law's upcoming wedding.

    I thought when they dance together "This is Our Dance" would be a lovely song to be played or "Tender Feeling" or "I'm Yours" or "I Feel Like I've Known You Forever" or "The Twelfth of Never".

    I find C'mon Everybody is a good song to dance to.
    You ask how long I love you, I'll tell you true,
    until the Twelfth of Never, I'll still be loving you

    "Tender Feeling" from kissin' cousins is a beautiful love song that is a underrated and not a well know song that would be perfect for a wedding.

    Bobby you could also suggest to her that after they say they "I do's", she get up in her grooms face and yell "YOU AIN'T NOTHING BUT A HOUND DOG"

    Seriously, I'd recommend these:

    Today, Tomorrow & Forever
    As Long As I Have You
    And I Love You So
    Love Me Tender
    Can't Help Falling In Love
    "Don't tamper with the property of the U.S. Male"
