"Just The Way You Look Tonight" -- Sinatra

"Beyond the Sea" -- Bobby Darin

"Come Away with Me" -- Theresa Sokyrka

"Isn't This a Lovely Day" -- Irving Berlin

"Isn't She Lovely" -- Stevie Wonder

Debra -- Here's my thoughts: The Sinatra and Darin tunes are more "bouncy" so to speak, but still great Fox Trots and, of course, great songs.

"Come Away with Me" is slower, more sensual.

The Irving Berlin tune is more elegant, depending on the version you listen to.

The Stevie Wonder tune is a bit fast, but it can be done. And it is a song about child in reality. However, those in attendance at a wedding could easily think it refers to the bride.

How about:

Smile-Nat King Cole

Heaven-DJ Sammy

Eternal Flame-The Bangles

The third one may seem difficult but I have done a Foxtrot to it!

Have a fun wedding day! :)

"My Love Is" - Diana Krall
"You're the Boss" - Elvis and Ann-Margaret
"Nothing Ever Changes My Love for You" - Diane Schuur (Slowfox)
"Tout Doucement" - Feist (fun whether or not you speak French)

What do I get if I win?

"Dream A Little Dream Of Me" - The Mamas & the Papas (can't beat Mama Cass with this version of the song imo)

"The Lady's In Love With You" - Alma Cogan

"You've Got A Friend In Me" - Randy Newman
(check out the instrumental version too, I love it!)

if you're looking for something less intimate here are some that I really enjoy foxtrotting to

"The Pink Panther Theme" - Henry Mancini
"Left Bank Two" - The Noveltones
"The Orb of Dreamers" - The Daniel Pemberton TV Orchestra (I like doing the rumba to this one too)

Best wishes on your day of bliss!

EDIT: just realized after replying that some of us are a couple years late. Enjoy the song suggestions =D
