    We are getting married this May and plan to have an Elvis ceremony, probably at Viva Las Vegas. Since The King was born about 80 miles north of me, I am familiar with most of his work. I have been bouncing around on my mental play list for a while but wanted to throw it out here to see if anyone recommends a song I might have forgotten. The package we will use includes three numbers by the Elvis guy doing the ceremony. The song Viva Las Vegas is really on our fence right now because I love it and my fiancee is pretty much MEH about it. It may or may not make the cut.

    Thanks in advance for any advice or suggestions. :jester:

    My two favorite songs The King sang are:

    Heartbreak Hotel
    Jailhouse Rock


    Hopefully neither of them describes your upcoming nuptials! :D

    Some great choices already posted above, though! :thumbsup:

    Thanks everyone. You have been extremely helpful. There were a couple of songs that y'all suggested I had not thought of.

    Tell your fiance that the spirit of Elvis has to be present in order for your marriage to be blessed and make your marriage last forever.
    It is good luck to have the spirit of Elvis present because if he isn't there it will be a heart break hotel. You don't want that to happen. One of my relatives got married in Vegas many years ago and so have his brothers have been married in VEGAS.. The reason that the marriages have lasted is because the spirit of Elvis was present each time.

    Every time one of them got married in Vegas I would ask if Elvis was present and they always said YES! I would walk away
    feeling happy for them. You don't want Elvis to sing Return to Sender.... Address Unknown..... LOL.

    The most romantic song to play is LOVE ME TENDER LOVE ME TRUE ALL MY DREAMS COME TRUE. It is a slow sweet song that is great for a slow dance between the BRIDE & GROOM. Evis lives, Viva Las Vegas! LucyR.

    the Wonder of You. awesome but not too sappy.


    sooner or later, it seemed like Elvis covered almost every song that someone else had a hit with. and most of the time it sounded pretty darn good. so if there is a song you really like, you can google it to see if there is an Elvis version. I love his My Way, and Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain. and I could go on and on about many more.

    Let Me Be There
    it sure sounds appropriate....
    Where ever you go, where ever you may wander in your life
    Surely you know I always want to be there
    Holding your hand and standing by to catch you when you fall
    Seeing you thru in ev'rything you do
    Let me be there in your morning
    Let me be there in your night
    Let me change whatever's wrong and make it right
    Let me take you through that wonderland that only two can share
    All I ask you is let me be there
    Watching you grow and going thru the changes in your life
    That's how I know I'll always want to be there
    Whenever you feel you need a friend to lean on, here I am
    Whenever you call, you know I'll be there
    Let me be there in your morning
    Let me be there in your night
    Let me change whatever's wrong and make it right
    Let me…
    Let me be there in your morning
    Let me be there in your night
    Let me change whatever's wrong and make it right
    Let me take you through that wonderland that only two can share
    All I ask you is let me be there
    Let me be there in your morning
    Let me be there in your night
    Let me change whatever's wrong and make it right
    Let me take you through that wonderland that only two can share
    All I ask you is let me be there
    All I ask you is let me be there

    Wanted to thank you all again and let you know what Elvis will be singing at our wedding. The package we went with has Elvis doing two songs as well as the ceremony itself. The song that gets things started will be Can't Help Falling In Love With You. Once the ceremony is finished, we will finish with The King singing The Wonder of You. Both are pretty romantic and we can slow dance to the first one while pepping things up a little dance-wise on the second one.
