Ceremony songs

Recommended Posts

I think most of your guests woul still expect to hear the traditional wedding march, since most don't know about all the ideas on BDW. :-) So, if you found a beachy version of it, I think that's perfect!

 

We are being relatively UN-traditional.

 

"Ground Control to Major Tom" (Tom is an Army Major) will play as the cue for Tom and his GM to take their palces, as well as for the guests to be seated.

 

Then it will segueway into Michelle Featherstone's "We Are Man and Wife" and Secondhand Serenade's "Awake". (The BM's will walk down the aisle to those two songs.)

 

I will walk down the aisle to Israel Kamakawiwo'ole singing his melody of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" and "What A Wonderful World".

 

As soon as we say 'I Do', Smashmouth's "I'm a Believer" will start playing as we kiss and walk back down the aisle.

 

Toby Mac's "Made To Love You" (fast, upbeat song) might be what we are welcomed into the reception with. Esthero's "Everyday's A Holiday (With You)" is also a definite.

 

And cake cutting is definitely to "I Wanna Grow Old With You" - Adam Sandler.

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.
I don't know what other resorts are like but when we married at the Riu Playacar, I didn't know it until I got there that I needed 4 songs. One for when the bridesmaids are walking down the isle, one for me walking down the isle, one for the signing of the marriage certificate, and one for us leaving. I had only brought with me the song I wanted to walk down the isle to. Luckily the rest of our family was still at home when I found out so they were able to download the songs I wanted and bring with them when they came.

Thank you so much. At least I know I will need at least 4 songs and a few extra just in case LOL.
My FI and his BM want to walk down to the Imperial March from Star Wars. Im a good sport so I allowed it. I have a Mr. and Mrs. Potato head cake topper for goodness sake how could I not go along with it.

I will walk down the aisle to Israel Kamakawiwo'ole singing his melody of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" and "What A Wonderful World". He also has a GREAT song called White Sandy Beach....perfect to walk back up to I think, I wanted it has our first dance but we finally agreed on "Brighter Than Sunshine" by Aqualung.
I also think the harp will sound beautiful. It will sound very beautiful on the beach.

Edit Note: Dixie Chicks - Lullaby. Such a great song for a wedding video.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
