I love Jack Johnson - Angel but it is only 2 minutes. I'm worried it's not long enough.
Also, anyone know about how many minutes of music we need to get the parents and bridal party down the aisle? I'm getting married at the gazebo and I'm not sure where we we start from!!
Also, if anyone can share their song choices for processional, recessional, walking down the aisle, etc that would be a great help!!!
I would have to say music was the last thing I worked on and it was super hard for me to decide on. I only have 9 days left till we leave for Mexico and I'm all ready to go!!!
For the music I rented the sound system and I will be bringing a CD and IPad to play the music just in case one doesn't work I atleast have a backup. I'm not sure if you hired the DJ but from a previous review I had read that the DJ can run the sound system for your ceremony so if you haven't already maybe ask him if he would do this for you, and as far as I know there is no extra charge. That way he will know when to cut songs and if need be replay a song.
I'm not sure how long the sand ceremony and bridal party walk down the aisle to the gazebo is going take. I can't imagine the sand ceremony taking more then a couple minutes but for the bridal party maybe have 1 very long song. For the ceremony I used all Vitamin String Quartet songs, which in general are longer. Here are the songs I picked:
| Ceremony: || All of these are by the Vitamin String Quartet |
| Guests Seating || Don't Stop Believing-VSQ cover of Journey |
| || Wonderful Tonight-VSQ cover of Eric Clapton |
| || Love Story- VSQ cover of Taylor Swift |
| Groom & Bridal Party || Can't help falling in Love- VSQ cover of Michael Buble |
| || |
| Bride || Marry Me- By Train-there is an instrumental version |
comes up when you google VSQ Marry Me (has a CD cover with a bird on it)
| Sand Ceremony/Signing the Papers || Just the Way You Are-VSQ cover of Bruno Mars |
| Exit || I'm Yours-VSQ version of Jason Mraz (also download reg version) |
Also, don't forget a bridal party entrance song, your entrance song, dance songs and cake cutting and if your doing garter/bouquet toss. So much small stuff!
