Can anyone suggest some bluegrass songs for a simple wedding service for an informal second marriage.
Thanks,
Anne

I guess the standard cheating songs are out, which eliminates quite a few. How about "Married by the Bible, Divorced by the Law?" Seriously, some old country love standards work well in bluegrass weddings: try "I Love You Because" or "Have I Told You Lately that I Love You."

Well, one we almost used was a song by Laurie Lewis called "Love Chooses You." It's a beautiful love song.

How about 'they're burning down the house I was brung up in' if one of them changes their mind?

Before I Met You is a beautiful song, unless ya do it the way Lester & Earl did it. That sounds like a march

We used to do I've Got A Never-ending Love For You on occasions such as anniversaries and weddings. There is a great bluegrass arrangement of the tune that includes a dramatic full stop and a measure (four groups of four notes each) of chromatic ascending banjo in the bridge.

Never Ending Love

by Delaney Bramlett
performed by Delaney and Bonnie and Friends

I've got a never-ending love for you
From now on that's all I want to do
From the first time we met I knew
I'd have a never-ending love for you

I've got a never-ending love for you
From now on that's all I want to do
From the first time we met I knew
I'd have a never-ending love for you

  (bridge)
After all this time of bein' alone
We can love one another, give for each other
From now on
It's so good I can hardly stand it (full stop and banjo riff)
Never-ending love for you
From now on that's all I want to do
From the first time we met I knew
I'd sing my never-ending song of love for you

After all this time of bein' alone
We can love one another, live for each other
From now on
It's so good I can hardly stand it (full stop and banjo riff)

Never-ending love for you
From now on that's al I want to do
From the first time we met I knew
I'd sing my never-ending song of love for you
I've got a never-ending love for you

"My Dear Someone" (as seen on Down from the Mountain) by Gillian Welch/David Rawlings is a fantatic old fashioned love song.

more country than bluegrass, "you're my best friend" as sung by Don Williams, though it sort of jumps the gun if the couple dont already have children:
"You're My Best Friend"

You placed gold on my finger
You brought love like I've never known
You gave life to our children
And to me a reason to go on.

You're my bread when I'm hungry
You're my shelter from troubled winds
You're my anchor in life's ocean
But most of all you're my best friend.

When I need hope and inspiration
You're always strong when I'm tired and weak
I could search This whole world over
You'll still be everything that I need.

You're my bread when I'm hungry
You're my shelter from troubled winds
You're my anchor in life's ocean
But most of all you're my best friend.

You're my bread when I'm hungry
You're my shelter from troubled winds
You're my anchor in life's ocean
But most of all you're my best friend...

----
I attended a wedding where the band played the Tennessee Waltz; thankfully no-one sang the lyrics.

Herb Pedersen's beautiful "Wait a Minute" might work. It's kind of hard to think of love songs written by Bluegrass artists because it seems most are of the cheatin' or lost love variety.
Stanley Brother's "How Mountain Girls Can Love" might go over at the reception.

Til the End of the World Runs Round (I'll keep on loving you) by Flatt and Scruggs surely?

Right, Jerry and speaking of Flatt and Scruggs their cover of the Carter Family's "You Are My Flower" might do.

You could also avoid the one with the lyric

Yonder stands my own true love
And she's all dressed in red
And she's the darling of my heart
And I wish my wife was dead.

I was going to suggest You Are My Sunshine but looking at the lyrics it's pretty cloudy too! In fact, bluegrass songs generally are a downer, though tunefully so.
