Thanks for all the suggestions!! We are using the DJ for the ceremony and reception. I emailed him asking if he knew about times as well.
This is the last big thing we're deciding on! Everything else is pretty much done!!! I have to make 1 more big purchase for the OOT bags and that's it!! We're just waiting on a few more people to decide if they're coming or not before we order them.
9 days!!!! I can't wait to hear all about it!!!!

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!
