Ceremony music: how does "bring-your-own" work?

Recommended Posts

Hi, everyone!

 

I am looking for insight on how the whole "bring your own" music for the ceremony works at Sandals. While I may end up springing for a live musician, I was wondering about the logistics of bringing my own CD to play for the walk down the aisle, and afterward.

 

If you marry at one of the gazebos, do they provide some kind of sound system or is it just a little "boombox" off to the side, for lack of a better term?

 

Any tips/info. would be greatly appreciated!

Hey Christie,

 

Actually bringing your own music is really easy. When you meet with the WC down JA after you arrive.... in the wedding book, you have a page just for this. You will be able to fill out exactly what you want for where. They also have blank slots if you want to add extra songs for certain things. I just ended up putting down the numbers next to along with the names of the songs as I had made a sleeve for my disk. (this way any thought of messing up wouldnt happen)

 

Yes the sound system is there as they need it for your guests to hear you and the minster for your vows. Jay was rigged with a mic for both of us.

 

Hope this helps!

Thanks, Amanda!

 

That makes me feel so much better that it's not just a little portable CD player or something (perhaps my imagination was getting the better of me that I thought it might be)! I'm glad there are so many brides like you on this site to offer tips and advice on their experiences -- it is more appreciated than you know, believe me!

 

Smiles and high-fives!

I am bringing my ipod with all my songs and the portable Bose speaker set for ipod. I didn't have a Bose ipod speaker and broke down and bought one on ebay and it is so worth it. The sound is amazing!!! Also it has a rechargable battery that will last three hours on high.

Thanks for the suggestion, mfry --

 

I think I may cross my fingers and hope that everything works out for the best with the speaker system they provide (since I will already be bringing too much stuff as it is!) If I am recalling the commercials correctly, The BOSE system is amazing (and surprisingly small), so I hope it works out for your big day!

For all you ladies looking into portable systems, I wanted to suggest a cheaper version, the Altec Lansing InMotion iM7 (we just bought one). According to all the reviews my FI and I have looked at, it's actually quite a bit better sounding than the Bose (not that Bose is bad) and it's only $150! It's discontinued because there's a new model out now, but the new model doesn't sound as good because they decided to sacrifice quality for size.

 

The only downside with the iM7 is that I think it may be a bit heavier than the Bose (not 100% sure). It sounds great though, and I actually even read a review where someone tested it on the beach with no problems or distortion (yay).

 

Anyways, GL! For me, the hardest part is picking the songs ><

    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&amp;ga_search_type=all&amp;ga_view_type=gallery&amp;ga_search_query=personalized necklace&amp;ref=sc_gallery-3-9&amp;plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
