Wedding Day Music - Ceremony, Cocktail Hour and Reception

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies,

I haven't really seen a thread on this topic, but I've been researching different music for my ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, etc and I was a little bit stumped.  I love music, but I didn't think that having a top 40 song to walk down the isle to was necessarily appropriate.  So, I started doing some research.  I stumbled across a record company (Vitamin Records) that does popular music covers with a string quartet.  I went to Amazon.com and searched "vitamin records in mp3" and found 445 entries of different singles and albums in tribute form.  They use a number of titles, but I find searching by the record company has really helped.

 

My personal favorites?

  • Maybe I'm Amazed - Tribute to Paul McCartney (Vitamin String Quartet Tribute To Valentines Day)
  • God Bless the Broken Road - Tribute to Rascal Flatts (Strung Out Vol. 6)
  • Your Song - Tribute to Elton John  (Vitamin String Quartet Tribute To Valentines Day)
  • Your Eyes - Tribute to Peter Gabriel (The Rock and Rolls Valentines Day Collection)
  • All I Want Is You - Tribute to U2 (The Rock n Roll Wedding Tribute)
  • I'll Be - Tribute to Edwin McCain (Strung Out Volume 6)
  • It's Your Love - Tribute to Tim McGraw and Faith Hill  (Vitamin String Quartet Tribute To Valentines Day)
  • Everlong - Tribute to Foo Fighters
  • Hallelujah - Tribute to Jeff Buckley (or Leonard Cohen) (Strung Out Vol. 9)
  • Come Away With Me - Tribute to Norah Jones

 

The best thing is, you can go through and preview every single song and then the downloads are only $0.99.  My Fiance really loves the music (who knew?) and has even suggested using Vitamin String Tribute to Star Wars.  (Good luck with that.)  I also had a dinner party the other night and played a mix of this music (specifically Pearl Jam and Nirvana) and my friends husband asked me if I could make a copy of it for him as he loved it.  

 

I really hope that this helps some of you.  I know that I will be using my iPod through my wedding day and I feel like I have a better handle on my music now, and I feel like it will appeal to all of my guests.

 

Here is the link to the searched Amazon website:

If anyone has some more suggestions - In terms of tribute music by vitamin records or another source - please feel free to add it here.  I would love any input on piano or acoustic guitar tributes as well!

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
