Music freak out

Recommended Posts

The one detail that I can't seem to narrow down is the music. I have most of the main songs and a list of some of my favorite for the reception but I can't just have a list.

I am starting to download songs so I can begin burning discs, but I have realized I am going to have to figure out how to group them so they flow from one song to the other and from CD to CD.

Also, I don't know how many songs I need. Has anyone figured out an easy way to do this? I am thinking that each CD will hold approx an hour, so I would need like 9 or 10 hours to be safe (5-2)? And then plan ques for different events?

Oh lord... hand me that bottle! No, I don't need a glass!

I don't even know where to tell you to begin. Maybe do one CD that covers the pre-wedding music, the bride music, and the after ceremony music.

 

And then have the next CD have the songs for the dances you are doing(I'm assuming you will do most of these right away) or are you doing dinner first?

 

So you will need dinner music somewhere and then reception music.

 

But I have no idea how you should organize it, like fast song, slow song, etc... maybe you can just hit shuffle and let the CD player decide, hahaha!

 

I think I just made this worse!

 

How bout an IPOD?

I'm having my songs pre-mixed by a DJ friend and put on several CD's. My WC gave me a very specific time chart so I know how much time I need to cover for the pre-ceremony cocktails, ceremony, post-ceremony cocktail hour, dinner, and reception. Ask yours if that info is available.

 

I'm giving instructions to the person playing them for me and labeling discs in English & Spanish as well - ceremony, cocktail, dinner, reception1, reception2, etc. Someone told me itunes plays songs back to back so there are no pauses between songs, I think that was what you were referring to. I'm not sure if that is recordable though, but it's worth looking into.

I sat down last night and tried to do a schedule, and I used the idea of one cd for each section and I think it will work out.

 

They said I could use an ipod, so I am going to double check on that. I don't have one (I know, who doesn't have one?) but I think I have someone I can borrow one from.

 

That is just a lot of music to come up with!!! 6 hours... ouch, and I love music. Of course by the 3rd hour everyone will probably be so whacked they won't care whats playing smile29.gif Thats when you break out the ice ice baby and let em go to town!

I don't own an ipod either Mishi and i have no clue what I'm doing for music. I guess my wedding is 6 months away vs your 23 days away! You must be excited. Good luck with the CD's... 6 hours may seem like alot but I'm sure it'll go smoothly.

Mishi, I don't have an IPOD yet either, but I do have an Itunes account with some downloaded songs. I want to buy an IPOD both so that we can have it at home to play (with a docking station) and for the wedding. I'm actually thinking about registering somewhere for my shower that sells IPODS & the bose docking station I want, and registering for them, so I don't have to buy them before the wedding. All I keep picturing is people saying "she registered for what", she's supposed to be registering for sheets & dishes", hahaha!

LOL, well they are going to be the same way when they see what I registered for because, as I do everything BASS ACKWARDS, my FI and I have lived together for 4 years, have owned our house for 3 of those years, and have already had a Housewarming party where we got plenty of towels and potholders! SO DON'T BUY ME A DANG TOASTER!!!

we have a house already too, so we have a lot of the necessities, not that I can't use a new comforter set and extra sheets, etc.... but we've got most of the usual stuff.
