Music for Ceremony?!?!?

Recommended Posts

do you mean which songs? or live vs. recorded music?


i am renting my resort's (dreams cancun's) sound system for the ceremony, with which i can use cds or my ipod. plus the sound system was needed to mic the ceremony ... i hear it can sometimes be hard to hear your vows without it, especially if you're having a video done.


for mexico, mariachis are always fun ... i'm saving them for cocktail hour tho.


i'm not definite on songs yet ... i think i'll be using


Israel Kamakawiwo'ole "Somewhere Over The Rainbow & What a Wonderful World" for the bridal party


bride's processional is up in the air still, but some i like are: String Quartet Tribute to the Cure - "Just Like Heaven," and The Weepies - "Somebody Loved"


recessional is probably "For Once in My Life" by Stevie Wonder (it was my parents' wedding song and i wanted to incorporate it)

If you're un-decided on what kind of live music to get, our minister sent me this post (on BDW) when I wasn't sure...(I have chosen the Mexican Trio)


"The Mexican Trio is one of the most romantic traditions ever... Here's why: When a man is truly in love he would hire a trio and bring "serenata" to the loved one.


The way a good serenata works is as follows... The future groom hires a Trio or a mariachi band and they all go directly to stand outside the loved one's window. If the light inside the room is lit then the serenata has been approved and appreciated by the future bride to be... If the light inside the room is never turned on... Then it is more likely that the father of the bride will let the dogs out!


Trios are actually accomplices for marriages! And it has happened that sometimes you need more than just one "serenata" to get the job done.


So when you have a Trio at your wedding it means many things... But the most important thing is that your

husband to be is already bringing you the first "Serenata" :)"


So depending on how much of a romatic you are, the Mexican Trio might be for you! I love the tradition behind it! cheesy.gif

You mean the song you walk down the aisle to??


We're getting married in Hawaii so we're thinking something kinda Hawaiian but with meaningful Hawaiian lyrics. But I'm also in loved with Jason Mraz "I'm yours" such a sweet sweet song. And I love the beat of the song from the movie 50 First Dates!! Love that song and that song has meaning to us behind it!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
