    Hello everyone,

    I was wondering what you guys have playing as you are/will be coming down the aisle. I have not discussed this with Elena so I am not sure what is the norm. Do they just play a CD they have or do you pick your own music. I was just curious what other people are planning on doing.

    Thanks!!

    Maya

      You can give them a CD. I made a CD with music to be played before the ceremony, my walking in song, the processional & music to be played afterwards. I had the disc clearly labeled so they go the right song. I also took several copies incase something happened to one.

      The pre-ceremony music was a song for each couple at the wedding. I emailed people & asked what their song was. Either the first dance from their wedding or a special song. This was the music playing while guests were taking their seat & waiting for the ceremony to start.

      I walked down the aisle to a counting cros song mike's best friend recorded on his keyboard. We walked out to U2's beautiful day.

      After the ceremony, the music was a bunch of songs that Mike & I really like. it played during the champagne toast, group picture & then while we started our couples pictures.

      I used the free program audacity to crop the music & blend it together. The sets of music were all one track so the guy running the cd player only had to skip to track two for my walking in song. I faded the songs into each other on audacity. I also cropped beautiful day so it was cued up to the point I wanted.

        Yes, we did the renewal of vows (married legally in the states right before we left).

        We chose to walk to Luis Miguel (BEAUTIFUL!!!). Elena has it there.

        Cora is still there and an absolute DOLL!!!

            the flowers were part of the package. it included my bouquet & a centerpiece on the table during the cermeony. they then moved that centerpiece to our table at dinner. there were some other flowers around the ceremony set up that also go moved.

            if you needed more flowers for multiple tables, that would be extra. I'm not sure of the cost. I think we paid $4 for each boutineer for our moms.

              Thanks Morgan. Yes, I'm thinking of getting extra center pieces for the tables and flowers for the BM's and one to put in their hair. Did you guys get your BM's flowers (if you had any)?

                  I ordered flowers for my hair - white lillies ... I got 5 flowers and it cost me $5! :)

                  I also asked for something a little different than what they showed in the book and wasn't charged anything extra.

                  Again, within FIVE minutes, we had our entire wedding planned!!!

                    One more thing - we did the Tulum Experience - zip lining, rapelling, cenote snorkeling and Tulum Ruins - 100 percent RECOMMENDED!
                    Marcel was our tour guy and he was awesome!!!!

                    You can book it at the hotel.

                      That sounds awesome! I'm trying to find a fun excursion to bring all of our guests on the day before the wedding. Do you think this would be the type of tour everyone would like or something we should save for the 2 of us?
