What are you walking down the Aisle to?

Recommended Posts

I can't decide! I'm thinking of using a steel drum band instead of an actual song with lyrics. It'll go with the Jamaican beach vibe. Thoughts?

Just so you ladies know my FI has me addicted to Spotify. If you haven't been on there yet you can get a free month. Annnyways, you can have access to pretty much any artist/album out there and then click "make available offline" and it's like accessing your playlist from iTunes. If you have a smart phone or iPod touch they make an app similar to iTune/Music. What's great about Spotify is that you don't have to pay for each individual song. I think it's like $4.99/month but you can always just pay for it right before the wedding and have all the songs you can dream of. My FI and I are big music geeks so this is PERFECT for us since we have so many songs. Not going to lie most of my ceremony list is VSQ...they're just too awesome! Hope this helps you all!

All You Need Is Love and You Are The Best Thing will also be on my playlist. Music is really important to my finance and I too and ever since we got engaged (okay even before haha) we have been adding to our playlist. We are not having a DJ so I am glad I started early to have plenty to choose from! I will have to share the list when I am done :)

I know I've said it before and probably sound like a crazy person but there is a Vitamin String Quartet version without words so you don't have the words of "getting back with someone" distract from the fun and beauty of the song. Also, the Lumineers are from my home state, Colorado, so I'm a big fan of the song too. I think no matter what it's a fun and original song. Have fun and good luck!

I am 99% sure that I am going to walk down the aisle to Forever by Ben Harper. I was thinking Marry Me by Train, but my fiancee said he'd prefer Forever since the lyrics actually pledge a forever love and not a fantasy (not to know anyone that's using Marry Me - I love that song!!). It was sweet! How could I change my mind after that?!?

Does anyone have a good version of 'Can't help falling in love' by Eddie Vedder or Pearl Jam. We love it and think there are only live versions, but I want to find the best live version so we can edit out most of the screaming fans :).

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
