Out of all the great romance movies out there, there are only a handful of songs from them that really, truly lend themselves to weddings. (Sorry, Titanic, but "My Heart Will Go On" is just slightly too depressing for real-life nuptials.) So if you're still in search of a song to walk (or dance) down the aisle to—that isn't Bridal Chorus—or you still haven't found that perfect song for your first spin as a couple, take a look at (and listen to) some of our favorite wedding-worthy film love ballads, below.
