Ceremony music: how does "bring-your-own" work?
Posted 05 April 2009 - 03:58 AM
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!

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!

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 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!

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 ><
