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

Recommended Posts

Well depending on your music taste you probably won't like my help :-)


We're having

Rise Against-Swing Life Away

Atreyu-The Theft

Something Breaking Benjamin.... can't remember

 

I'm walking down the aisle to Killswitch Engage (super soft music, not normal Killswitch)

 

It fits us! Thought I'd throw it out there

I dont know why but this is my biggest area of stress!  How many songs should i have planned for when the guests are being seated?  And then when else do you play music...just for the wedding party walking down the aisle?  Or will you play it at other times during the ceremony?  With my ceremony being on the beach I guess I also fear the music not really being loud enough.  We just get a cd player.  AHHH...don't know why I'm so worried about this!

Here's what I'm planning:

15-20 min. of music while guests are being seated (this is usually 4 or 5 songs)

 

1 song for fiance's mom and my mom to walk down the aisle to

1 song for the bridesmaids

1 song for the bride

1 song for signing the documents (We're doing a legal wedding in Mexico and people say it takes about 5 mins, or one song, to sign the documents)

1 song for the recessional 

 

Hope that helps!

Thanks for all the ideas. We have not started picking songs yet and my fiance is really into music, but now I feel like I have some suggestions to bring to the table.

I was originally thinking about doing some Bob Marley - happy island music.  But after talking to my DJ, he said it should really be music that is more mellow.  I'm not too fixed on anything other than the processional and recessional so I'll let him go with it - he knows better than me.  I also met with my officiant and he suggested Vitamin String Quartet - they do instrumental versions of popular songs - but not like elevator music.  I listened to some sample on Amazon and like it so I'll probably do that.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
