Advice/ Help Needed: Ceremony Music
Omeshia sent me the music request form, and they are asking that we have songs for:
Processional (Normal, and of course we already had our song selected for this)
Bridal March (Normal and selected)
Kiss of the Couple- here is where I'm confused- see note below
Signing of Documents- not sure what song we want here and need suggestions- see note below
Recessional (Normal and selected)
Here is the issue. We have already selected songs for the seating of the guests, processional, bridal march, and recessional. The recessional song is a special song for us. I spoke to Omeshia about this today, and she said they play the kiss of the couple song after the officiant says "you may now kiss the bride" and play it for the kiss of the couple, then stop the song. Doesn't that seem like a very short amount of time to play a song? She said they then stop the music and we will walk over to sign our documents, and they will play that song. She said that we do not even need to do a recessional, or select a recessional song if we do not want.
So, do we use our recessional song for the signing of the documents? Or do we pick a playful, more "jamaican" style song for the signing of the documents. I asked Omeshia if we have to pick a kiss of the couple song, and she said no, we do not have to, but they recommend it. Is there something I am missing here?
Let me know your thoughts/ advice when you can. Thanks, ladies!!
