      HereFishie what day do you fly out of Edmonton? I fly out on the 25th! You must be getting so excited, I know I am. My to do list is getting smaller but I still have a few things to do. QUESTION ladies what songs are you using for your bridesmaids to walk down the aisle? I have my song but that’s it.

        The set up is (when you're looking AT the lobby) the bar is on the right. The food will be lined up along side the pool. There will be round tables of 8 or 10 (i forget which). They will have lights strung up. Then you dance inbetween the straw umbrella thingies.
        Thank you, That helps.
        I just got confirmation of our wedding date!! I am so excited!

          We fly out on the 21st! We're so excited. We just want it to get here already! 3 more sleeps!!!
          We're doing a mayan blessing so they provide music. We're not concerned with the walking down the aisle music really.

            You girls leave SO soooon! I can't wait to hear all about it!

            I'm having my girls walk down to "Better Together" by Jack Johnson. It's light and fun and leads well into my song!

              Thanks for the suggestion KRama! I almost picked that one too. Last night I thought long and hard and listen to MANY songs and this is what I came up with:

              1.Bridesmaids: Jason Mraz I'm yours
              2.Bride: Israel Kamakawiwo- Somewhere over the Rainbow
              3.End of Ceremony: Natasha Bedingfield: Pocket Full of Sunshine (My Fianc© LOVES this song ha-ha)

                I'm walking down the aisle to the same song Erica! haha I think it's pretty common around this forum but the very first time I heard it I was like "that's the song I'm walking down the aisle to."

                  Anyone have any suggestions for a DJ? I read on some earlier posts that the resort DJ is not that good. I have read some good things about DJ Bob, but was wondering what other suggestions there may be.

                    Yes - it was tons of fun and a lot less intimidating than I thought it would be! I think my pics are going to turn out great - I can't wait to see them. Thanks for the advice!!

                    Bride: Canon - a ukulele version I found on BDW!!
                    End of ceremony/walk out - Better Together - Jack Johnson

                    QUESTION: Jazmin said we need 4 songs... when is the 4th song played? I've heard some mention while guests are being seated and some mention during the ceremony (sand ceremony if having one) Can anyone help as this will determine what song we pick. Thanks!

                    A lot of people have recommended DJ Bob. I contacted him but he was already booked on my date. He recommended DJ Bijan with Mayan Vibes (mayanvibes.com I think) so we booked him. I'll write up a full review after my wedding in June. I hope he's good! He's actually cheaper than the resort DJ so I'm really crossing my fingers!

                    BTW - I STILL have not heard back from Jazmin about switching my ceremony from legal to symbolic and am really starting to panic!

                    The fourth song is for while you sign documents. It takes awhile, so you can fit at least a three minute song in there.
