Songs to play at a wedding?

Hi all-
One of my teachers saw me at the talent show and thought I did great, contrary to my belief. He is getting married soon, and wants me to play some "Soft, acoustic stuff" for his wedding while people are coming in and talking and stuff. He said he'd be happy to cut me a paycheck, so that would be my first offical gig as a guitar player. I'm learning a drop-d version of Pachelbel's (sp?) Canon in D-, and it sounds great so far. I'm guessing I'll need an hour of material. Any good song suggestions?
Thanks!
Jake

Pick any ballads you like and learn a fingerpicking version.

Also, I'll pick 3-5 chords and make up a song just for the occasion, fingerpicking. Doesn't have to be exact or perfect. Everyone will love it.

Hi Jake
Don't know if its a church wedding or not but if it is another good one you should be able to find a decent arrangement for is "The Lords Prayer"

Hi Cherrish...

Oh yeah, I'd toss that one in too! :)

Maybe even..."Jailbreak" by AC/DC?
