        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

         

        You had some great song choices!! :)

        Hey Kitkat & Uhaft,

         

        Did either of you use the resort videographer?

        Does anyone have a copy of what exactly is said during the ceremony?

         

        Also, for those that did a symbolic ceremony, were  you able to sign something to make it look more 'real'?

          I do not have a copy of what exactly was said but I gave them wording that I wanted for the ring warming ceremony, our vows, and exchange of the rings.

           

          We had a symbolic ceremony (everyone there thought it was the real deal and I made sure that Pilar knew that) and we did sign a paper so evreyone thought that we were signing the marriage certificate. No one questioned it or asked to see it; thank god!!

           

          To answer your question, we did use the resort videographer only because it was included in the package. I wouldn't have booked one so I didn't really expect much with it. I got it in the mail a couple of weeks ago and it wasn't too bad. It was basically a little from before the ceremony, the whole ceremony (which is nice for people who weren't there) and a little of us while taking pics on the beach and cocktail hour. If it is something that is really important to you, you might want to book an outside vendor, if not I would think that the resort videographer should be okay.

            I had brought my own photographer but decided to stick with the videographer from the resort.  I think they did a pretty good job.  Ours was 35 minutes long.  It was nice watching the whole ceremony as a spectator for once! It brings back nice memories!

            Great! I'll make sure to tell Pilar I need it to look real! 

             

            A video is important to me just so I can show people that won't be able to make it. Mainly my grandmother. But I just watched Uhaft's video and it's actually just what I want. The videos that make it look like a movie are great but not sure I can afford what they charge. I think i'll stick with the resort videographer.

            Thanks!

            You looked beautiful! Loved your dress & your hair! Thank you so much for posting the link. I think I will just use the resort videographer. Thanks for all your help. I'm sure i'll come up with more questions sooner or later!
