I was originally have problems as well trying to pick songs for each part of the wedding so I know how frustrating it may seem! Here is a list of the songs I chose.  I put them on my ipod and handed it over the the wedding coordinator the day of the wedding and she takes care of changing the songs for you.  They have their own microphone and speakers set up as well. Usually guests start seating no more than 30 minutes in advance.  So I picked out 5 songs to play. I hope this helps!

 

Prelude

Because you loved me-celine dion

Amazed-lonestar

Everything I Do, I Do It For You- Bryan Adams

The way I am-Ingrid Michaelson

You and I-Michael Bubble

 

Processional

Can you feel the love tonight-elton john

 

 

Bride entrance

marry me-train

 

Recessional

I Do- 98 degrees

 

During the reception I picked the 3 main dances and let the dj take care of the rest! He plays songs based on the type of crowed you have.  He did a great job!

 

First Dance

Bless the Broken Road- Rascal Flatts

 

Father-Daughter Dance

you raise me up- josh groban

 

Mother-Son Dance

A Mother's Love by Jim Brickman

 Okay another question about music to the ladies that have been there.  I am getting married at the Pergola Deck.  Would a 6 minute long be long enough for 2 bridemaids and then me to walk down the isle too.  I fear that it would be way too long for me to walk to.  When there is 2 minutes left in the song there is an awesome part in the song for me to walk out to.  If you want to listen to the song and tell me if you would think that it would work it is Everything by Lifehouse.  I have wanted this song since I met my fiancee and we have been together for 7 years tomorrow!!!

Here is a link the our wedding video:

Hello Ladies,

 

Thanks for such kind words!

 

ashleyblayne: You can always start playing your song and just start walking once your part comes on. Otherwise I am not sure how you will work this out.

 

Kerri: I would contact Pilar.  You should have definitely gotten yours by now! My video was actually longer but for some reason the whole file didn't upload! My video was 35 minutes long.  It had some of our guests speaking during the cocktail hour and it also had our first dances at the reception.  Oh well...

 

brgephar: our bridal dress can be ordered at many bridal shops.  It is from the Bill Levkoff designer.  Here is the link to the dress http://www.billlevkoff.com/style/bridesmaid-dress/157 we had the glacier color.

If you get the wedding package your hair and makeup is included.  Otherwise it is $59 for hair. The rehearsal itself only took 10 minutes if that.  We had a dinner after the rehearsal which lasted about an hour.

We didn't have a rehearsal but I didn't have a wedding party so I didn't think we needed it.

Wow they stayed for part of your reception? Did you pay extra? They did the ceremony and maybe stayed for about 10 minutes of the cocktail hour...the girl was mad at my photographer though because he wanted her to move her camera during the ceremony and she wouldnt so maybe that is why!

Kerri - you didn't get your video yet? I got mine probably 2 weeks after we got home...I would contact Pilar or someone to see what happened to it! And trust me...you don't want to see my video with me and my awkwardness haha! I hate watching myself...I laugh when I am nervous and apparently I was nervous because there was a lot of weird laughing going on! :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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?
