Solo Guitarist Songs?

Recommended Posts

Hey Brides! For those of you who have used or are using a solo guitarist for your ceremony, what did he play? I would love for the guitarist to play familiar songs like U2's "All I want is you" and classical pieces. Is this possible to give them a list? or is it like a DJ and they have a specific playlist you can choose from (I'm clueless!) Thanks girls!

If you've found a guitarist, he probably has a list of songs he knows. These are the ones that will sound the best, so start from there - you may find that he has lots of things you like.


If there's something specific you want, talk with him about it and see what he can do - usually, with a little time, they are happy to accomodate new pieces into their repertoire.

hi. I'm working with Adan Mijares for my ceremony and cocktail hour. he sent me a list of what some of what he plays along with his demo. Sounds really great. he said if i had any special requests to let him know so he can begin to work on it now. I am seeing if he will play unchained melody for the processional. I will let you know what he says and if he is willing to play it!

Chances are your musician will be able to play anything you want especially if they can get their hands on the notes (most popular songs can be found on the internet). We are bringing our guitarrist down from the states but we gave him a list of songs ranging from Dave Matthews to Country and he learned them in less than a week.

I just wanted to let you know that we can play your requests, it would be good to know your list of songs prior to your wedding to be able to practice or learn them if that would be the case. I used to play on a band so I know all types of songs U2, Santana, Jack Johnson, Billy Joel, Pink Floyd, Sting, Beatles, etc etc.


In Case you are intrested please contact me and will send you some demos.


Thank You, Have a nice day!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
