What songs are you playing while your guests are getting seated?

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to put together my play list for the ceremony and am looking for ideas for the prelude (while guests are getting seated)

I'm a huge fan of the 'good ol times'. The 40's, 50's, and 60's. Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Ella Fitzgerald, Etta James. Classic, but upbeat and touches of romance. If you're interested in songs, shoot me a PM!

Whatever we play, we will NOT be playing any sad songs, that's for sure. We went to a wedding this past fall and the DJ played several slow heartbreak songs. While I dont normally pay much attention to what's playing in the background, I do remember thinking "wtf?!!!" cheesy.gif

You know what I completely forgot about a song for while guests are being seated. Im glad though because I had 3 songs I really wanted to use:


Des'ree - kissing you


Ray-J - Anytime


Sade - By your side.


I knew I wanted Des'ree for walking down the aisle, but I was torn with the other 2 which to have to first dance, but now that I've found another allocation for a track then I think I'll have Sade whilst every one is being seated.x

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
