I'm going to have to download all of these songs I don't have. The ones i know, I love. So i will probably like all the rest. I think such greats heights is a great song to play after the wedding.

Okay girls, I must know how you all know such wonderful diverse music. I have to admit that I am clueless about most of these songs!! I feel so dumb. Is there a website I can go on to hear samples? I am sure I would like to use some of these songs especially the Spanish/Mexican ones.

 

Ann,

Did you ever get a chance to ask your guests how they liked the Mexican Trio you hired? I am 90% I will hire them which means I wouldn't have to download that much Mexican music. I'd have the authentic version!!

Any Las Caletas bride know how much music I should plan on having for the dinner and reception? I assume the Trio doesn't play during dinner but I'm not so sure!

 

Thanks

We're music freaks so we have a huge library at home. To hear samples, besides the illegal download thing, you can go to sites that sell music and hear like 20 second samples (i.e. towerrecords.com, amazon.com, etc).

There is a fairly accurate timeline provided when you sign your contract, have you done that yet? It says the start and end time of each segment of the wedding/reception. That's what I based ours off of. If you didn't get that ask them or I can pull mine out and tell you what they told us if you need it.

Well I did put my deposit down but I didn't get a timeline of events. Nicole is on vacation this month, but I will have to ask her about that. If you don't mind sending me yours, that would be great. You can PM me if you'd like.

Thank you!!

I haven't decided on my wedding music, but I did recently make a CD of love songs for a CD club I'm in. The way the CD cllub works is there are about 12 of us in it. You make a mixed CD on your month & give it to all 12 members. Its great because you are always hearing new music & learning more about your friends. We go all out with making liner notes, etc. Here are the love songs from my CD. I was trying to find some more alternative, non traditional love songs. Then there are some standards on it too.

 

1.Scissor Sisters- Might tell you tonight

2.Third Eye Blind – I want you

3.U2- She moves in mysterious ways

4.Beck- Everybody’s got to learn sometime

5.Sade- By your side

6.Nil Lara- Fighting for my love

7.Paul McCartney- Maybe I’m amazed

8.Dave Matthews and Santana- Love of my life

9.Counting Crows- Colorblind

10.Blue October- Calling you

11.Neil Young- Harvest moon

12.Flickerstick- Beautiful

13.Coldplay- The scientist

14.Chris Isaak- Wicked game

15.U2- The sweetest thing

16.Live- I alone

17.Incubus- Stellar

18.The Verve- Sonnet

 

1.Deftones- No ordinary love

2.Dave Matthews Band- Crush

3.The Cure- Love song

4.Beatles- And I love her

5.Sting- Every little thing she does is magic

6.They Might Be Giants- She’s an angel

7.U2- With or without you

8.Violent Femmes- Good feeling

9.Barenaked Ladies- Call and Answer

10.Incubus- Echo

11.David Gray- Be mine

12.The Coral- Dreaming of you

13.Justin Timberlake- Like I love you

14.The Pretenders- I’ll stand by you

15.Garbage- I would die for you

16.Cheap Trick- I want you to want me

17.REM- The one I love

18.David Gray- This year’s love

I'm still very much working on our list ... but aside from our first dance and the mother & father songs ... our slow songs are going to be the wedding songs of all of our married guests. We have about 20 couples coming and 2 are celebrating either 10 or 40 year anniversaries during our trip. I thought that would be a nice way to show our appreciation for them coming, by finding out their first dance songs and acknowledging them when it starts to play.

I love this idea!!! Several of our guests are celebrating anniversaries during the trip too. Hopefully I like their songs, too :)

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
