    Hey LC ladies!

    Just wanted to let you know that you have a new LC bride-to-be! Yeah!!!! We just got our confirmation from Nicole and we've reserved December 28th, 2008! Very exciting!

    I'm sure I'll be writing more throughout the year asking for advice...right now I've got to finish a semester of nursing school - crazy busy...but my planning will begin this summer.

    Just wanted to say thanks...you guys have really helped get me and my fiance really really excited about LC.

    -Heather

      Yari,

      If you are here, I see that you are having the bridal march play at Las Caletas. Are they providing it for you? There are so many different versions. Are you hiring the Trio? I am having the Trio and then using an Ipod. Nicole told me the Trio can play a cool song in place of the Bridal March which I agreed to but now I don't know. What song are you leaving to after the ceremony? By the way, does the Trio play during the dinner? If not, how many hours of dinner music do I need? Thank you

        Hi there,

        I am going to bring the song with me and have then play it. I found one I really liked on ITunes and bought it.

        We are going to play Somewhere over the Rainbow for the bm's to walk down to. I am not sure what song will be played after the ceremony.

        I am not having the Trio, so I am not sure how long they play.

          I'm getting married at Las Caletas on May 25, 2008. I'd love to know what some of the other LC brides are doing for music. We're having a small wedding, 40-50 guests. I've received quotes from Enlace, but I haven't heard any samples and I definitely want to keep the scale of the music appropriate to our small wedding.

          Thanks for your help!

            Sorry we did our own music, no help here.

              Stacey - be sure to post your Newbie thread so we can welcome you properly!

              My group was about 60 people, and we had the Trio for the welcome and cocktail hour, then the DJ.

                We are just doing an Ipod. I think it's all about your vision and what you think will work with music. It's not a big deal to us- we just like to dance so we figured our Ipod will do.
                Happily married since 2008

                  Congrats! You get married 2 days before me.

                  We are going with the DJ. My parents heard the DJ and said he was really good. He plays music during the reception and on the way back to PV. I heard that basically if you don't like what he is playing tell him you don't and he will change it. Its one of those things if he doesn't know then he thinks its fine and keeps playing it. No one in my family is very computer or IPOD savy so we felt the DJ would be well worth or money for not having to do the music ourselves. My understanding when I had mentioned songs to Kelley for the ceremony was that she would be the one doing most of the music. I don't know if this is right. Do any of the married brides know? She told me that if there were any songs that we really wanted to make sure to bring them just in case the DJ doesn't have it.

                    my guess is that the DJ will handle the music - Kelley will be busy doing everything else they do! you're paying for him for the evening, so he will probably handle all of the music. that's what he did for us anyway (outside of the Trio time)

                      Hi all!

                      For music, we used the DJ. He did a great job. We did provide CD's with music for the prelude, ceremony, dinner, first dances, etc. and then he mixed it up for the dance time. He did a great job of figuring out what the crowd wanted to hear and giving it to them...

                      For the prelude and ceremony music, I found some recordings of songs that I liked on acoustic guitar. Here is our playlist... it worked out beautifully.

                      Prelude:
                      1. Romance / Michael Soloway 2:57
                      2. Intermezzo / Michael Soloway 1:15
                      3. Trumpet Tune / Various Artists & Alex de Grassi 4:40
                      4. Dona Nobis Pacem / Peter Pupping 2:37
                      5. Air (Water Music) / Michael Soloway 2:23
                      6. The Baroque Period: Prelude, Cello Suite I / Peter Pupping 2:41
                      7. Dance Of The Spirits / Michael Soloway 1:29
                      8. Ave Maria / Peter Pupping 2:12
                      9. Air on the G String / Michael Soloway 2:25
                      10. Ode to Joy / Peter Pupping 1:20
                      11. Spring (Four Seasons) / Michael Soloway 1:17

                      Ceremony:
                      1. Canon in D / Michael Soloway 4:10 (for the wedding party's entrance)
                      2. Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring / Bob Sirois 1:44 (my entrance with my dad)
                      3. I Will / Don Latarski 3:20 (Water ceremony)
                      4. In My Life / Don Latarski 3:11 (Water ceremony)
                      5. Prince of Denmark's March / Michael Soloway 1:00 (recessional)

                      Dinner (the DJ has most of this music but this is what I brought):
                      1. South America Folk: Milongueo del Ayer /Peter Pupping 2:32
                      2. Flamenco Mexicano / Willie & Lobo 5:33
                      3. El Farol / The Peter Pupping Quartet 3:34
                      4. El Tubo / Willie & Lobo 5:53
                      5. Fragile / The Peter Pupping Quartet 3:23

                      19.Moliendo Cafe / The Peter Pupping Quartet 2:34
                      20.Djobi Djoba / Gipsy Kings 3:26
                      21.Vista Bahia / Willie And Lobo 4:36
                      22.To the Night / The Peter Pupping Quartet 2:13
                      23.Fuegando / Willie & Lobo 6:19
                      24.Ole Cinco / Willie And Lobo 4:26
                      25.Bamboleo / Gipsy Kings 3:24

                      We also gave our guests a CD of some songs from the wedding as part of their favor bags. We gave a copy to the DJ and he played a lot of these at the dance and during the boat ride back...
                      1. I Will / Don Latarski 3:20 (from the water ceremony)
                      2. In My Life / Don Latarski 3:11 (from the water ceremony)
                      3. Suddenly / Soraya 4:03 (our first dance song, in English)
                      4. De Repente / Soraya 4:06 (our first dance song in Spanish)
                      5. I Hope You Dance / Ronan Keating 3:34 (my dance with my dad)
                      6. Waltz from Boda / B¶rje Sandquist & Mats… 2:28 (his dance with his mom)
                      7. Songbird / Eva Cassidy 3:45 (song we love - they played it on the boat)
                      8. Para Tu Amor / Juanes 4:09 (song we love - don't remember if they played it or not)
                      9. Better Together / Jack Johnson 3:30 (song we love - they played it on the boat)
                      10. Tu y Yo / Juanes 4:27 (song we love - don't remember if they played it or not)
                      11. You Are the One / Elliott Yamin 4:17 (song we love - don't remember if they played it or not)
                      12. Let's Stay Together (2002 Digital Remaste… 3:18 (song we love - they played it on the boat)
                      13. Somewhere Over the Rainbow / What a Wonderful World / Israel Kamakawo'ole 5:08 (song we love - they played it on the boat)

                      I would have loved to have the trio but it was a little pricey for us and people said that they loved the music. Feel free to use whatever you want from these lists, or do your own thing! It's your day. Do what makes you happy.
