Riu Brides...bringing own music...

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure how much timing I'll need. I'm hoping just one song will do it for both of us - but I guess I should prepare for two!! My song is going to be Alison Kraus - When you say nothing at all for when I walk down. I was thinking have my FSIL's husband play guitar & have my uncle & friend sing it, but with the wind out on the point the acoustic probably will not carry well. So I think I'm just going back to the CD. Oh...here...this is my list (short right now!)

Steady as we Go – Dave Matthews Band (our first dance)

Is this love? – Bob Marley (entrance song)?

When you say nothing at all – Alison Kraus (entrance)

Goin up – Great Big Sea (exit song)?

Signed, Sealed Delivered - (signing register)

Crush – DMB

We are man & wife – Michelle Featherstone (signing register) **This is an awesome song...Michelle Featherstone - We Are Man And Wife lyrics

 

And here is a list of songs I stole from someone here...I haven't really sorted through them...

"Crazy Little Thing Called Love

Wouldnâ€t it be nice

Dance With Me - YouTube - Canon in D- New Wedding Music/ Wedding Song (Celtic mix)

Canon in D - YouTube - Canon in D- New Wedding Music/ Wedding Song (Celtic mix)

You guys are going all modern eh? I am doing some beachy and some traditional.

This is what i have so far.. somewhere over the rainbow (MOH entrance), Cannon in D (my entrance), one love (signing of marriage license) and Komo (recessional). I think we will need to pause though before walking down the aisle as SOTR and Cannon in D take a bit to get going.

I have started some of my tunes for before/after got some Marley, Beach boys, UB40, Bedouin Soundclash, Jimmy Buffet and working on others. If anyone has idea for me, fire away :)

If I end up doing the disco for a bit, I will probably make a cd with first dance (amazed maybe) and some groovin tunes to shake my bootie to.

Well...we are both HUGE Dave Matthews Band fans!!!! There was no question that one of his songs would be our first dance song. Our CD for the DJ will by no means be modern! We're thinking a lot of East Coast/Newfie music!!

I hate to do this but I feel the need to provide some info...Amanda has already hijacked the thread but I'm going to add my 2 cents .. for what it's worth lol

 

I had 1 song for my BM, MOH & myself to walk down the aisle to and to be honest you won't need more than 1 song. The reason why I say this is because they get you to walk pretty much right away and by the time one song finishes you will be standing there waiting for a while. The "aisles" aren't that long. All 3 of us walked down before the song even finished.

 

I had the 1 song to walk down the aisle to then 5 songs that played during the ceremony, signing etc. Honestly, I don't even remember hearing them and if you have guests I'm sure the music will be turned down so they can hear you (even with a microphone) say your vows etc.

 

I then had 10 "steel drum band" songs with a carribean/beachy theme to them that played after the ceremony. We barely got through the 10 songs then we had our pic session on the beach etc.

 

Personally, I had 1 cd with 17 songs. 1 to walk down the aisle to, 5 wedding/instrumental songs to play during the ceremony and then 10 songs to play during toast, pics etc. 1 song to dance to and that was it.

 

This is just my opinion but if you give them too many cd's they won't know what to do with them lol
