What are your suggestions/tips for safely traveling with glass vases and avoiding items from breaking i.e. bubble wrap, hardcase luggage...?Thanks

    We had a resort officiant and he was pretty easy to understand. I was worried about this too but it turned out fine! I had put together wording for our ring warming ceremony, our vows, and the exchange of rings so he basically just read all of that plus a few little things that he added. The ceremont was about 15-20 minutes long.

I was also worried about not being able to understand her but she spoke pretty well even with her accent she was very clear.  She did a good job and said really nice words. She read some kind of poem as well it was kind of giving advice. Not sure if they all have a different way of doing things.

      Thanks for the feedback ladies. This is definitely reassuring since we will be scripting our own ceremony and it would be really unfortunate if our guests don't understand what's was being said.

        I am also wondering this. I know probably 1 for bridal party entrance, 1 for bride entrance, but how many songs while guest are seated/waiting? How long in advance does the guest start to arrive at the ceremony site?


        62 guest booked, plus Bride and Groom!

          Since we seem to be on the ceremony topic I have a couple questions.

           

          1) If you bring your own music who changes the song as needed?  (For example, bridal party entrance song then it needs to be switched to bride's entrance)?  Do you need to have one of your friends or guests do it? I am assuming you then rent the sound system from the resort?

           

          2) Has anyone used live music for the ceremony? I was thinking of maybe hiring the guitarist but was wondering how you know what songs they play and what you can request.  Do they then change the music appropriately?  How do they know when to switch songs?

           

          I hope this makes sense I am just so confused about this ceremony music thing!

            I didn't have a wedding party so I don't know if yours would be different but I had 3 songs for the ceremony. One song played while everyone sat and my nephews walked dow the aisle, one for when I walked down the aisle, and one for when we walked back up the aisle. Hope that helps!

              No, you do not have to have one of youe guests do this. They have someone there that will take care of it. I made a cd of the songs I wanted and gave it to Pilar. She gave it to whoever handled the music during the ceremony for us. I think you will be safe if you have your ipod or make a cd.

                Hello Ladies!

                 

                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

                you raise me up- josh groban

                 

                Mother-Son Dance

                Thanks Uhaft! 

                This will come in handy! Did you have all these separated on your ipod as you wrote it here?

                  yes I did split them up just so it was clear for the person playing the songs.
