    I had planned on doing this too... just a small tough that doesn't cost much.

      I like the idea! I think it would be fun to include some traditionally Jamaican music in there since you ARE in Jamaica... they can still be love songs!

      we're thinking about doing this for part of our OOT bags (since we arent doing favors because its not custom there). my FI was sitting in our kitchen when i came home from work yesterday working on his "perfect mexican playlist" with ALL songs by mexicans. some of them are so funny, but great to dance to. we were dancing in our kitchen before we went out to dinner last night, so i cant wait to dance with everyone at our wedding to these great songs now, because he's giving the DJ a copy of the disc too

        we were considering doing a cd as well... we were thinking songs that meant something to us or the #1 billboard song for each month we have been dating

          we're doing this. it's of our favorite songs that have some sort of love theme. not necessarily beachy, but it's very us.

            I think a cd is a great momento! We plan on doing this as well. Who knows, it may help keep some of your guests 'busy' (lol) instead of bothering you guys!

                We did this and our guests loved it! DH has the playlist, but we had a lot of reggae and vacationey music - Jimmy Buffet, etc - as well as our first dance song and the Hawaiian Somewhere Over the Rainbow (I walked down the aisle to it). Not only did everyone use it in their rooms, but a few told me that after the wedding they were listening to it to try to get back to that vacation feeling.

                We also bought aqua and red CD's to use (our colors) and used DH's Light Scribe printer to burn a picture into the CD (instead of using a label).

                  i love the cd idea!!! i actually did this for my save the dates. we bought cd labels ( i had the plastic label that is part of a kit from years ago, so that saved money ), the colorful, plastic cd sleeves and made up a cute label. All-in-all I spent about $45 for 20 of these. I went to office depot to have them printed because I thought it looked more professional than my home printer. My soon-to-be guests loved them. They tell me that they pop it in the cd player all the time to get them pumped up about Jamaica.

                  I think I might make another one with caribbean love songs for couples and party songs for the singles. I know giving two cds might seem repetitive, but hopefully not since none of the guests will think to bring their own to Jamaica and I'm sure they will love to have something to listen to while in the room.

                    Not at all -- it's great !!! I am doing the same thing ... actually, we are giving away TWO CD (we got double sided cd cases). Our taste in music is different since I like french caribbean music and he like english caribeean music but we both like "regular" love songs (RnB, contemporary, etc). CD1 will have my pics (7 of my favorite love songs with 7 caribeean french love songs) and CD2 will have his pics (7 of his favorite love songs with 7 reggae love songs). Like that his side of my family will get introduced to my type of music and my side to his.
