Which type of music did you use for your beach ceremony???

Recommended Posts



I just got a quote from a prospective wedding coordinator (Caribbean Blue Weddings), which was nice.


We want to have a beach ceremony with music other than a guitar or mariachis. The beach they use for ceremonies is the Playacar Phase I and apparently the possibility for music other than instrumental is impossible.


What type of music did you use for your beach ceremony? Did you have a portable PA? Did the musicians have amplifiers for their instrumentshuh.gif Did the person performing the ceremony have a microphone?


Ideas and opinions are very welcome!


****Highly considering The Royal in Playa del Carmen*****

If you get married at the Royal, all that stuff is included. We got married at the sister resort next door and you can bring whatever music you want. We just brought ours on a CD and they played it. If you have musicians, I don't think they would need amplifiers because it would be loud enough, but I'm sure the WC will give you more details if you really want them to have amplifiers. There is a wireless microphone that the officiant can use. They have the speaker system all set up and everything is included in the cost of the ceremony. The musicians are extra though.

Hmmm. That's actually quite good! The wedding package they have on their website (The Classic) or any of them to be honest is no where near to what we want. Are those packages customizable?

I am getting married at The Royal on August14, 2008. We are trying to figure out what kind of music we want and we are having issues. We are having a mariachi band for our beach reception but for our ceremony, we were going to provide our own music. Does anyone know if they provide an ipod hookup or is it just a cd player? Once I get that answered, all that we have left to do is pick what songs we want.....that is what we are having a problem with. We don't want any of the standard wedding music. We are trying to come up with something different, something original. Does anyone have any suggestions? When I get back, I will post a trip report for all to read. Hopefully I will be of some help to everyone on the forums!

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
