groom or choose a song with very meaningful words by an artist you both
like. If you have been
together for a couple of years then, chances are, you already have
"your" song, or can easily choose something that has meaning to the both
This could be the song you first danced to, a song you both sing along to while driving, something he dedicated to you or a song on a cd you gave to him, a love song from a band you both love or perhaps even went to a concert to together. Make this moment part of who you are as a couple.
If you just cannot think of any particular song, then how about a beautiful song you both like with lyrics that are appropriate for the moment when you walk down the aisle.
