I'm currently feelin: curious curious

Would, or have; and of you had a U2 song in your wedding?

Not that I am getting married any time soon, but I have always wanted 'All I Want is You" played at mine..

Anyone else had one played, or want one?

Well, I'm not getting married anytime soon, but when I do marry my boyfriend I made it well known that we'll have The Sweetest Thing as our wedding song. He didn't object to that, thankfully.

I definitley have a keeper here ;)

Oh that song would be great! I lurve that one.

That video and the Stay video are my two faves of all time from U2.

I went to a wedding in November of last year. We asked the DJ to play various different U2 songs....stuff we thought would be romantic and whatnot. Well, the guy said he didn't have any U2 and if he did he wouldn't play any cause you can't dance to it?!

That's not true! At a Sweet 16 party, my friends did this belly-dance thing to "Lemon" (this was 1993).

what I love is Bono's rip on people who play One or With or Without You at their freaking weddings..
"did you LISTEN to the lyrics??"
for fucksake, you know?

Same BS Sting's put up with from people who tell them Every Breath You Take was "their song"... he's been known to reply "well you're pretty fucking sick then"...

Ha, the people who have no idea what kind of pain is in One. Love the song, but it's surely not a wedding song.

My French teacher was married to 40. Awesome, if you ask me.

I'm getting married in April and we are definitely playing some U2. All I want is you will be the song for our first dance. A friend of mine got married a few months ago and she picked Two Hearts Beat As One to be played just for us because of our fandom. She picked special songs for all of her guests...LOLOL.

That is gonna be so cool...:-D Congrats on your wedding!!

I don't think I could have a wedding with U2 and The Beatles playing some part...I just can not imagine it...

I like the idea of picking songs for your guests...very cool!

At my sister's wedding I made the DJ play Sweetest Thing. It was on some best of 1998 or something, and it was the ONLY U2 they had! I'd play Sweetest Thing or All I Want Is You at my wedding..I don't know of any other U2 songs that'd fit a wedding

Mmmm. Definitely. Maybe not walking down the aisle or the first dance... Hey, I can see 'Original of the Species' as the father/daughter dance. Probably beaten though but I didn't read the comments :D

I'm getting married in December. During cocktail hour, we're playing "City of Blinding Lights' and dancing to 'Grace'.

My friend walked into her wedding to Elevation (Influx mix) like the boys walking on stage for the last tour.

All I Want Is You is a pretty song (one of my favorites), but it's not really that appropriate for a wedding if you listen to the lyrics: It's about a guy only wanting a woman and her love, but that isn't good enough for her - she wants all kinds of material things as proof of his love.

Oh..I always listened to it as more of a religious song...in a way..this verse is the one that makes me think of that the most..
"You say you'll give me a highway with no one on it
Treasure just to look upon it
All the riches in the night
You say you'll give me eyes in a moon of blindness
A river in a time of dryness
A harbour in the tempest
But all the promises we make from the cradle to the grave
When all I want is you "

but maybe I am looking at it wrong. Cause God promises us all kinds of things really. But in the end all we really need is Him.

Anyway, I probably have been listening to it wrong..

I do see what you are saying in the first verse though..
