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.billlevko...smaid-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! :)
