Need help with ceremony songs

Recommended Posts

I was trying to come up with songs for the ceremony and thought it would be cool to use Bob Marley songs. Some are very fitting and since they are more "fun" there is a greater chance I won't start bawling my eyes out as I walk down the aisle crybaby2.gif. Which is a good thing cause then I won't be a big bumbling mess trying to say our vows.

 

I'm not sure I like the bridesmaids song for them.... This is what I had so far:

 

Bob Marley - Three Little Birds - groom and groomsmen

Bob Marley - Could You Be Loved - bridesmaids

Bob Marley - Is This Love - processional

Bob Marley -One love - recessional

 

I could swap out Is This Love for the bridesmaids and then put in the processional Lauryn Hill - Cant Take My Eyes Off Of You.

 

There's also the Big Mountain song - Baby, I love your way - but I think it might be too cheesy and I wouldn't know where to put it.

 

Any other ideas?

I am going to use Is this Love as my recessional song - so I am partial to that suggestion.

 

Could you be loved is a little fast, so maybe you could switch that to your recessional song and they can walk down to One Love?

 

Instead of the Big Mountain song, how about Peter Tosh's Here Comes the Sun?

 

I think your song selections would be great in the order you have them though.

I wouldn't worry about that. Once I started to walk down the aisle, I no longer heard the music. it's all a blur.

I like Could you be loved for the BMs. My music got all screwed up the wedding day, but I had planned on having "Baby i love your way" playing as the guests seated. Instead it became the bridal party entrance on accident. Oh well- I don't think it's a cheesy song though.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
