Review: Great Instrumentals
This CD provided a really good instrumental version of the song
"From This Moment On". I performed this at my best
friend's wedding and it was very easy to adapt to as it followed
the same music as the original song. The other songs on the
CD also sound very similar to the popular versions.

Music for Your Wedding Day
Awesome, the song selections are simply beautiful!
Review: A Day to Remember
This cd is unbelievably beautiful. It makes me wish I could
go through the wedding process again, but it brings tears to
my eyes when I listen to this cd and think that my little baby
will be leaving me one day.

Review: beautiful music
I bought this CD for an outdoor wedding where I didn't feel
organ or full orchestra music would be appropriate. This CD
is full of beautiful music...I plan to take all the music from
my ceremony from this CD! I'm sure I will also listen to this
CD in the future..so lovely and relaxing!! It was definitely
a great buy.
I was originally looking for songs to play at my reception but
ran across this album and have completely reworked the program
to include most of the ones on this album.
Review: a lovely CD
This is a lovely CD. I am very happy with this music for our
wedding ceremony . We even used some of the songs for our prelude

I thank Amazon for helping us with all our music for our wedding
Review: Beautiful instrumentals
This is a very beautiful CD. I was very impressed with the sound
quality of the music. You could play this at your wedding and
noone would know it is not live.
I bought this CD because I wanted an instrumental version of
the Wedding Song to have someone sing a solo to at my wedding.
This song is great, but I now plan on using other songs on the
The piano-duo The O'Neill Brothers have compiled a collection
of instrumental music for weddings comprised of original, classical,
and pop music that they have used in the 200+ weddings they
have played for over the past several years. I haven't been
to a wedding in quite a long time and have no idea of what people
are doing musically these days, but the variety of the selections
on this CD seems to cover most bases. A lot of the music is
ensemble playing rather than just piano, adding to the variety
of sounds. I'm not sure how many people who are not planning
weddings would buy a CD like this, so let's look at it from
the perspective of someone who is. The CD is arranged in sections
to correspond to the parts of a wedding - Prelude, Processional,
Ceremony, Recessional, and Reception - and each section has
2-4 pieces to use or choose from. I really like the two original
pieces, "Falling in Love" and "Reminiscent Joy,"
which are piano only. The Brothers also do a really nice job
with Paul Stookey's "The Wedding Song," which is also
piano only. The classical pieces are pretty standard wedding
faire, and include - "Canon in D," "Jesu, Joy
of Man's Desiring," "Ave Maria," and "Ode
to Joy." Pop tunes include "From This Moment On"
by Shania Twain, "Forever In Love" by Kenny G, and
"The Way You Look Tonight." All of the arrangements
are solid and appealing, so I think this would be a really nice
collection to use either in the background on the wedding day
or to help in choosing pieces to be played live.

Review: This is a great book to refresh
It had been years since I played the piano but I wanted to pick
it back up. I bought this book and I absolutely love it. Dan
Coates arranges the music in such a way that it is very easy
to pick up on and play. Would definitely recommend this book!
will you marry me?
so, you've found the wo/man of your dreams, located and secured
the perfect venue, sampled cuisine from so many caterers that
you're not sure you'll fit into your wedding duds, selected
bridesmaids dresses that will flatter you by making your friends
look like rocky horror rejects and ordered enough flowers to
enter your own float in the rose parade, but feel like you're
forgetting something? you are, stupid...you forgot to decide
on a song for your first dance. not to fear! some people wait
until two weeks before they come to this shocking realization
and still manage to not completely embarrass themselves.

Review: Nice !
A couple of 'crucial'and essential songs are missing :
'A WHOLE NEW WORLD ' by Regina Belle and Peabo Bryson (Disney's
'FROM NOW ON ' by Regina Belle and Glenn Jones (from the CD-'This
Is Regina')...Those are really the ultimate wedding songs!!
I highly recommend this CD for all married couples. (Single
couples listening to this CD on dates will soon have reason
to get married - so be careful.) It is a CD that you must give
as a gift to all couples you know because you will not be lending
them your copy - if you do never expect to get it back. I never
remove mine from the sound system in my bedroom. (You will find
out why soon enough - when you hear this CD.)There is no need
for any other CD. It is sooo seductive. I promise you will not
regret buying this one.

Review: Inspirational Wedding Music
I recently bought this CD and I am happy to report that I wasn't
disappointed. I found some beautiful music which I hope to use
in my October 2003 wedding ceremony. I think there are some
other Christian songs out there that would have been appropriate
for this CD, but overall I would have to say this is a beautiful
album and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for inspirational
music for their wedding.
Review: Great Wedding
I recently purchased this CD which I happen to find while browsing
in Amazon.Com. After listening to sample clips, I was convinced
that this compilation of various artists was the best choice
of all the other wedding music CD's that I have viewed. This
cd offers a variety of music styles from comtemporary artists.
Very romantic, perfect for your wedding! I highly recommend
this cd for those who are just can't find the right music to
play at their wedding. I highly recommend it!
Review: Great music to use at your wedding
Some of these songs are good for playing at your wedding ceremony.
Review: Medium Satisfaction
The CD just wasn't really the type of wedding songs I was looking
for I wanted something a little less old fashion.
Review: Awesome Wedding Blessings
This is an amazing set of songs.From the Processional to the
ressional and everything in between. We used it for our Anniversary
re-commitment and it blessed everyone! You will not be dissapointed.
And it also makes great addition to music for your quiet times
with the Lord.

So you are going to get married!
a song for you
originally, the whole concept of the wedding song arose from
the fact that most couples had "a song", "our song". unfortunately,
this notion seems to completely escape today's soon-to-be-weds,
who enter ballroom dance studios across the country asking,
"what do you suggest?" well, i suggest that you sit down and
try to remember the song that was playing the first time you
kissed, the first time you danced or the first time you held
hands. i don't even care if it's romantic or the least bit appropriate.
in my opinion, a song that means something to the both of you,
even if it's the divinyls' "i touch myself" is better than picking
something from a list that a ballroom dance studio gives if
for no other reason than that's it's personal.
if you're determined to have something dignified
and suitable and can't remember a single memory that will supply
a song that fits the bill, there's still hope.
a little research is a beautiful thing
fortunately, there are droves of compilation cds geared to rob
you of your wedding dollars--'I
Will Be Here: 25 of Today's Best Wedding & Love Songs',
Beats: Now & Forever - Timeless Wedding Songs', 'Rockin'
& Rollin' Wedding Songs, Vol. 1', etc.. comb through
track listings online and you'll be surprised to discover how
many of these completely acceptable songs you have in your own
meager cd collection. if not, you can always order one online--you're
already on the site, right?
in spite of the comments above, the lists at most
ballroom dance studios are actually great resources. even if
they don't have a printed list, i guarantee you that your instructor--you
are taking lessons, aren't you? no? see below--can rattle off
a list of songs that couples have been using for decades from
the top of his/her head. i know i can. you can also take in
the song(s) that you're considering using to ask for advice
on tempo, style of dance, etc..
one last thing, consider the meaning of the song.
i once had a couple who wanted to use mariah carey's remake
of "open arms" because we'd used it a lot to rehearse waltz
and they thought it was pretty. it is pretty. it's also about
a couple breaking up and getting back together. that might not
be such a good idea. another couple decided on elton john's
"can you feel the love tonight" from the soundtrack to _the
lion king_. i hope it had some great personal significance because,
in my opinion, it's a rather insipid choice with which to begin
your adult, romantic life with your spouse.
you can't dance...no, really, you can't.
are you under 50 years old? if so, you can't dance. no, really,
you can't. at least not like you're meant to at a wedding. sure,
you've spent countless shirtless, sweaty nights at pleasuredome
and sbny dancing like a shaman in some tribal trance, but that
does not make you fred astaire or ginger rogers (well, maybe
every song you hear on the radio, on mtv, at the
market, with the possible exception of those by kittie and slipnot,
follow rhythm patterns that classify them as a particular type
of ballroom dance. those different styles of dance have distinct
steps and beats that separate them from one another. if you
didn't know any of that, i've already proven my point. you can't
fortunately, there ARE ballroom dance studios
all across the country and world. i know what you're thinking,
this isn't an advert for any one of them, though i do have a
special fondness for karen shelley and the folks at the arthur
murray studio in san francisco, california. fine group of folks,
they are. anyway, these kind professionals are trained to take
people like you, who may not have danced since their last kegger
at the frat/soroity house and turn them into graceful showpersons.
okay, i might be exaggerating, but you probably will stop tripping
over each other, at the very least.
not only can they help you select a song and teach
you how to dance, but they can advise you on grace and poise,
how to queue a bandleader or dj to invite other couples to join
you on the dancefloor and even how to get the most out of the
all-important money dance. all i ask is the following:
+ go now, it's never too soon to start taking
+ go with a positive attitude. let this be a break from your
more stressful wedding preparations.
+ let the instructor do the teaching. ladies, you have a tendency
to compare your instructor to your fiance. in the first place,
your instructor spends eight hours a day leading partners around
the dancefloor. in the second place, he's probably queer. so,
you see, you're better off, in the long run, with the one you've
chosen. keep the comparisons to yourself.
people are going to drop major dime making YOUR day a day to
remember. aside from purchasing something off your registry--you
did remember to register, right?--and picking out some fancy
new duds to try to outdo the happy couple, they have to worry
about getting to the altar--aren't these destination weddings
a b1tch? what am i trying to say? give the people their money's
worth! put on a show!
look, anybody can do a foxtrot <sigh> or
waltz <double sigh>. why not spice things up with a tango
of Tango'), salsa ('La
Negra Tiene Tumbao') or hustle ('From
Now On')? you've got nothing to lose and your friends' and
familes' attention to retain. sure, your walking down the aisle
is supposed to be the big event, but it only takes a hot minute
to take in a $1,500 dress and then you're bored sh1tless for
an hour (two hours if you're greek orthodox; i know of which
i speak). give the people something to watch and a reason to
come back (heaven forbid) a second time.
<sigh> you've picked a song. you dance like pros--or as
close as you can reasonably expect in the short amount of time
you had left. and you're in love. sit back and unwind before
the big day with the 'Love
Tickles (My Best Friend's Wedding / Sleepless in Seattle / The
Wedding Planner / As Good as It Gets)'.
oh, one more thing. since you put in all that
hard work, don't forget to capture the whole thing on film.
may i suggest picking up a 'Logitech
ClickSmart 510 Dual-Mode Camera'.
