Perfect!


I was planning on using CDS because that way I dont have to worry about my Ipod going missing or messing something on it up.  I will use your suggestion and put them all on one CD with the tracks clearly listed what they are for!  Thanks!

definitely put all your music on 1 cd! then just make a list of each track on the CD with what it's for like: track 1 - guests being seated, track 2 guests being seated, track 3 bride processional, track 6 signing the register..... etc.  like that but list each track. we had music for doing our sand ceremony, signing the register and our first dance since we did it right at the gazebo and it all worked out great. we didn't get every song only because it all went so fast we ended up with too much music! but otherwise, these guys do this every day sometimes several times in one day. we found they were great.  we got told that a cd is ten times easier for them than an IPOD just because of the connections and stuff and the sound was great. I heard it all the way down at the beginning of that loooooong pathway to do my walk so volume is definitely NOT a problem!!  doug actually had an extra list in his pocket just in case something happened to the first one, but we just put it inside the cover of the CD so it was all right there!

I had never heard of Cranbrook before we got there even from reading all of the posts here. wish I had so that we would have known because it's an awesome place!!  it's not that I didn't get to pick my specifics - I just didn't think about it and I guess I should have. I though I was clear enough in the beginning and I also thought that we would automatically have pictures right at the gazebo. we only did our sunset ones there and they didn't come out as well as we had hoped.

      @ Acw,

       

      Cranbrook Park was mentioned in this post awhile back... the bride raved about it and also said the entrance fee is 10 per person. She stated that her taxi driver Micheal from Spencer's Tour recommended it  over Mahoe Falls or Coyoba Park. So I made a note of it. Lol

      It really is a great spot for pics.

      ha ha that was me! if you check you'll see. we got married on oct 20th. if you want Michael Spencer's contact info I can give it to you. he is an absolutel gem of a man and really takes care of every one that he takes around! the funny part was he was originally recommended by someone my husband works with that got married at GBP back in may this year, and they used him and absolutely loved him, and they had a group of about 30 people! The reason Michael recommended Cranbrook was because of how close it is to the resort compared to Blue Mahoe Falls. His taxi bus would take a full bridal party, parents and a few guests quite easily and his rates are very very reasonable.

        ACW, would you mind sharing Michael's contact info with us?  We're looking for someone to drive us around for our trash the dress day!  Did you plan things with him in advance or just call him once you arrived?  I'd ideally like to set something up so we have a vehicle large enough for us and our two photogs and drive out to Dunn's River Falls, then make a few stops on the way back...
