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! :)

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
