    Hi everyone,

     

    i hope everyone is doing great with all their wedding plans etc

     

    I am looking to see what everyone has chosen for their wedding music for their special day!

     

    We have been asked to pick three songs for our cerimony and was just wondering what everyone has chosen for theirs.

     

    we have a few ideas of what we would like.

     

    thanks for your input

     

    mark

    Hi Mark!

    We're still working on our playlist but these are our current ideas:

    We're not having a wedding party, so our parents/grandparents will be walking to "Here comes the sun" - Beatles
    Bridal entrance - "Air" (from Water Music Suite)

    And for the entrance we have a couple choices...

    -          Better Together – Jack Johnson

    -          You make my dreams- Hall and Oates

    -          Signed sealed delivered – Stevie wonder

    -          I do – the Marvelows

    I think it depends on where you're having your wedding. We got married in Jamaica but couldn't afford the price for the steel drum band so I found steel drum music online that was exactly what we wanted. It cost me $6, which is a long way from the $800 that was being charged at that time. it worked perfectly and we still had the "jamaican feel" to our wedding music.

     

    You could almost do the same thing if you wanted to for Mexican music if that's where your wedding is, and depending on how cultural you want to get. If you're looking for first dance songs, there is a whole thread on this site with the contributions made on song titles.

     

    Good luck and happy planning!


    I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

    Hello! My bridesmaids walked down the aisle to Kiss the Girl from The Little Mermaid, I was supposed to walk to Somewhere over the Rainbow by Israel K, but the DJ kept playing Kiss the Girl. Oh well no biggie. Then he did play Somwhere over the Rainbow for the recessional when ceremony was done. Our first dance was At Last by Etta James, and I danced with my Dad to The Way You Look Tonight by Michael Buble. We were very happy with all our choices :)

    Good luck, there are so many beautiful songs out there to choose from, I had the hardest time!

    @jackshayne0123 I love hearing that your bridesmaids walked down to Kiss the Girl! My sister is officiating our ceremony as we're just doing a symbolic one and she kept saying she was going to sing this song. BUt I love that you actually used it!

    Thanks @csho! I had a different song picked out, and then I saw on here someone else chose Kiss the Girl and I freaked out! It was a total lightbulb moment. I LOVED it, it set a light, fun, romantic tone. And my girls loved walking to it too!

        does anyone know how many song you actually need for the whole cerimony?

         

        i was thinking 1 or 2 for the processional (people being seated)

         

        1 for the bride walking down the isle

         

        Maybe 1 while we sign the documents etc

         

        and 1 for the recessional (end of cerimony)

         

        can anyone confirm or suggest otherwise?!

        Oh yeah, we also had my best friend and her husband sing and play guitar while we signed our papers, they sang A Thousand Years by Christina Perri. I cried through their whole performance, it was absolutely beautiful.

         

        @mark82 I think you've got everything covered, that's how many songs we used, you should be good to go with those!

        I'm planning to walk down the aisle to over the rainbow/what a wonderful world by Israel K, and I'm trying to find other songs with a similar feel to them. I like I'm Yours by the Vitamin String Quartet for the signing of the papers, maybe? or "You're so cool" from True Romance?  I really like "wonderful tonight" by Vitamin String Quartet as well, but I don't know if it's too drastic a change from the other songs.
