Ceremony songs

Recommended Posts

Ok, so do you think it would be weird to use the Bridal March at a Destination Wedding? I found a really pretty version of it with a harp... sounds so pretty. Also what songs are you using for walking back down the aisle after being married? And while I am at it what songs are you using to be introduced at the Reception?

I'm still debating on the whole music issue.

 

I would say go with the Bridal March if that's what you want! I don't see anything wrong with it... and its your day!

 

At this point I think I'm going to choose songs to put on a cd to walk down the aisle to and to have my FSIL sing to during the ceremony. Then hire the steel band for the end of the ceremony and during punch/photo time.

There is nothing wrong with that at all! I think you should use songs that are important to you so go for it!

 

I walked down the aisle to The Air I Breathe by Teena Marie and the exit song was Golden Time of Day by Frankie Beverly & Maze. It played when we kissed and then we walked out. We were announced/introduced to Super Duper Love by Joss Stone.

Are you doing the organ church version or like a lighter piano or harp version? I found some really pretty ones on youtube. They just sound so light and "beachy" lol

We had... well.. a different sort of selection for our ceremony music, but it was all music that we love and shows our personalities.

The bridesmaids walked down the isle to "Love Is On The Way" by Siagon Kick, I walked down to "Lost In The Moment" by Big & Rich", during the signing of our marriage certificate we played "I'll Wait For You" by Joe Nichols, and to throw in a little of our rock 'n roll fun side, we played "Stranglehold" by Ted Nugent as we walked out. I know that sounds a bit.. hoosier but I have to say we had SO many people come up to us afterwards saying they thought it was awesome.

But I say you play whatever your heart desires! This is YOUR day and it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks! Nothing at all with playing the bridal march!

Definately go for the song that makes you happy its your wedding day.

 

I will be walking down the aisle to the instrumental version of Clocks by Coldplay.

 

Ok so maybe someone can help me out Im confused by the processional, recessional, etc and how many songs I need to have, how long, etc. Can someone explain any of this to me or point me in the right direction.

The BM and Gm are walking down to the instrumental version of kiss the girl from the little mermaid.... got the idea thanks to someone on the forum and we are walking down to somewhere over the rainbow,, forgot who sings it but some hawiian guy..

We are walking back down the isle to Bob Marley -One love.

 

I say you do what you want to do as far as what to walk down the isle to... its your day!

The wedding march played by a harp sounds great. We hired a steel pan player so I honestly don't know what it will be, but I'm sure it will be perfect. As for being introduced we are having a small dinner after the ceremony but nothing formal.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
