***dvohnout***

I hope I spelled that correctly :)

I was looking at your bio and I saw that you had a mix of music for your ceremony - David Gray and Canon.  How did you do that?  All on CD?  All played by the chapel musician?  Or a mix (DG on CD, then Canon on piano)?

I know you got married at MB and I"m getting married at Caesars, but I keep thinking I want a non-traditional song for the wedding party (Dave Matthews Band) and then Canon for my song.  Just not sure how to make it work.

Thanks!

    It was all played by the pianist at MB. I wanted it all to be instrumental to keep it from clashing plus I had a fear that my cd would mess up or they would lose it, so I picked songs for them to play from the playlist they provided. I figured it was guaranteed that they pianist would get it right :)

    ps. I think the mix of music turned out great. Since it is all on the piano, I think ppl are likely to think about the DG song, "hey I think I know that song." instead of singing along to the lyrics.

    I only got to hear Canon in D and that was before the doors opened when I was standing w/ my dad. Once the doors opened, I don't remember hearing anything :)

    It is all on my wedding dvd. But i've never watched it Undecided

    *butting in here* Hiya! :-)  If you want a consistent sound, but want a variety of music, look into Vitamin String Quartet.  They do all sorts of music, even Dave, and probably have traditional music too.  They are known for taking modern music and playing it through classical instruments.

    Also butting in lol! I contemplated getting a lesser package and just adding on at Caesars. We ended up getting the Cleopatra package and decided to just use the stuff in it since we're paying for it anyway lol. I will have to look into what music to pick <img src="http://cdn.cl9.vanillaforums.com/downloaded/ver1.0/content/scripts/tinymce/plugins/emotions/images/smiley-tongue-out.gif" border="0" alt="Tongue out" title="Tongue out" />
