    One of the reasons that I wrote off a destination wedding (at first) was because I always thought I'd have a vocalist at my wedding, and I figured that would be difficult in a place that I didn't know.  Well, I'm thinking about it again and wondering if anyone has used a live soloist in your RM destination.  They'd have to be GOOD, as I come from a musical family! :) I'm trying to think creatively (music schools, etc.).  I wouldn't mind a song in Spanish (though everyone there doesn't speak it), though I'd prefer something in English.  Some ideas for songs that I have to walk down the aisle to or have sung during the ceremony accompanied by acoustic guitar:

     

    Adele-Feel My Love (or the George Harrison version)

     

    Jennifer Hudson-You Pulled Me Through

     

    Glenn Jones-In You

     

    I'm open to other songs..but am I asking too much here?  Is this even more than a remote possibility? If I could pull this off, that would really make this a dream event for me.

        Well, the issue is that I'm already planning to fly down my photographer. I'm not sure budget-wise if I can make it work but I may just try! Thanks!

          My other suggestion would be is to get your vocalist to just record what you want sung ,then play at ceremony...Just a thought...

            LOL..my cousin said the same thing! I come from a musical family but I want them to be relaxing and having a good time. (My mom sings and plays and directs choir, but she has said in the past even before I got engaged that she'll be too busy looking cute to want to work at my wedding, and I feel the same way!)  I do sing, but I haven't sung in a long time and don't want to add an extra layer of stress onto my nerves. ;)

              Hey Ladies,

               

              I'm not sure if this is the style you are looking for, but my ALL TIME favorite live singer down here is Mike Grabow!  He plays a lot of Jack Johnson /  Jason Mraz type stuff as well as his own originals.  Hope you enjoy!  Check out his website for more videos: MIKE GRABOW.

               

               

              Happy Planning!
