    Oh my, We have under 2 weeks to go now....yikes

    What are you guys doing for music? are you bringing your ceremony music on ipod or cd? How many songs?

    I have asked and I always get," ok sure " ?

    I worried about the length of the song, how long does it take to walk down the sand I wonder...I would hate to get there half way through the song and just be standing there till it

    finishes.

     

    What songs are you guys using for when the guests take their seats?

      I had my ceremony music on a CD and the DJ played some songs off my ipod during the reception that he didn't have in his own collection.

       

      Our ceremony was at the gazebo and they aisle was quite long so I think it took at least a minute or two to walk down it. I don't think I used the entire song but they just fade it out when you reach the end of the aisle and the ceremony is about to begin. Honestly, you won't even notice the music! You'll be focused on your groom at the end of the aisle (and not tripping over your dress). :)

       

      I picked out a bunch of fun, beachy, love songs to play while the guests were seated. Off the top of my head I remember "It's now or never" by Elvis (I thought that was hilarious), "Come fly with me" by Micheal Buble and "For once in my life" but Stevie Wonder.

       

      I can't believe it's almost been a year! I want to do it all over again!

          Crystalz, why do you need to bring fabric at all? Isn't decoration of the wedding site included? Would fabric not fall into this category? Do you have unique colours or something? I never even considered this... if I don't bring fabric, is it just plain brown wood?! Now I'm worried.

          Wcook- i remember seeing somewhere on this thread that this one bride brought 12-13 yards of fabric but it didn't touch the ground. I'm bringing 15 yards down just in case, and if there is extra their just gonna make bows for the chairs out of it :)

            I just received our shipment of insulated mugs.  They look nice and I will need to add water resistant labels to them because I didn't pay extra to have them printed.  But it got us to wondering, how are we going to take all this stuff with us on the plane.  Do people bring extra luggage or ship things to the hotel?  Or am I supposed to give the OOT bags to some of the guests beforehand? Any past brides have recommendations on this?

              Saucy Friend- I was told to bring my own fabric if I wanted it---bummer I know. I was going to bring it, but now decided not to- I have 2 kids and tons of oot bag stuff to pack to thats just one more thing to bring down.

               

              I love Jason Mraz- Im yours- Great Pick!!!

               

              Im glad to hear you dont really think about the music- cause I have been over thinking the timing of it all...Im going to have to crawl down the aisle to hear the entire song I think,,,,lol

                    Christi: Glad you got your cups! Those will go over great with your guests! Check with your airline on the number of luggage pieces each person can check. I called my airline and each person can check in 2 pieces of luggage under 50 pounds each. So my plan was to pack everything and depending on the number of extra suit cases I ended up with I was planning to have my parents act like one of the luggages were theirs to check in so I didn't have to pay to bring extra luggage. Since I had that figured out I talked with the airline to discover I can check in a cardboard box as a piece of luggage. So that's what I'm going to do! All my OOT bags will be in the cardboard boxes and then once they are passed out I can throw away the boxes. That will be better than having to bring home empty luggage in order to get everything down there. Hope this helps!
