Reggae Songs for Your Wedding Ceremony Postlude

Reggae Songs for Your Wedding Ceremony Postlude

Reggae Songs for Your Wedding Ceremony Postlude

Are you searching for Reggae songs for your wedding ceremony postlude? This week’s edition of the Wedding Ceremony Music Series brings you songs from the islands to be used for your wedding postlude. The postlude is the time immediately following the wedding ceremony recessional.

The amount of time needed for the wedding postlude varies for every wedding ceremony. Consider what you will be doing next as well as what you want your guests to do. Many couples choose to have their wedding receiving line at the beginning of the postlude allowing their guests to then move onto the cocktail hour setting.

Other couples may choose to have their formal pictures taken as the guests enjoys the cocktail hour and have their wedding receiving line later in the reception.  Other couples may choose not to have a receiving line at all. Check out the ‘To Receive, or Not To Receive’ article on my blog to learn more about wedding receiving lines.

To determine how many reggae songs you will need for your wedding ceremony postlude answer the following questions. Is the wedding ceremony and wedding reception in the same venue? In this scenario, your entertainer may segue into cocktail hour music after your guests have all arrived in the area for the cocktail hour.

Is your wedding ceremony and wedding reception in different venues? The postlude will last until your guests have left the ceremony area. If you choose to have a receiving line you will need enough songs to cover the time needed for everyone to go through the line.

Your wedding ceremony postlude is a joyous time. The warm glow of stating to the world that you are as one.

Katelyn & Kenae's Wedding Reception

Recent Wedding on Top of the City of Providence

Thank you and Congratulations to Katelyn Carveth and Kenae Brooks on their recent wedding reception at the Hilton Honors Providence Biltmore Hotel.

Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your wedding reception!

From the setting, the ballroom on the 17th floor of the Hilton Honors Providence Biltmore Hotel

to the love story brought to life by the welcome to the family, by dads,  Eric Carveth, and Walter Brooks and toasts by Maid of Honor Anne Marie “Sissy” Skiffington & Best Woman, Monica “OJ” Cooley! Keefer Dowell grabbed the microphone to do a parody of all the things the bride & groom should do if they want to stay married! (Such as always go to bed angry with each other).  Additional toasts after the cake cutting from Brendan “Scumbag” Powers and Geoffrey Lake led into traditional parent dances and a special song to Katelyn’s mom Dawn Carveth.

The traditional bouquet and garter toss included a cold one for Kenae! (Who chugged it down to cheers from the guests!) And Pedro putting the garter on Jacob!

I had been looking forward to this wedding receptions dance party. (my favorite part of any wedding! Just saying) And I was not disappointed! The music guidelines that Katelyn & Kenae provided was spot on. The guests I had a chance to talk with at their tables and later had requests that everyone wanted to hear! The dancing never stopped! Don’t tell anyone they were even dancing on the windowsills!

Thank you to Monique Bernard Avila and Norbert Avila (Norbyyyy I didn’t know that was you till after the reception!) for referring this wedding to me.

Thank You Eric Carveth for your generous gratuity. I almost feel guilty for getting paid for doing what I love to do for such a great group of people!

Thank you to the staff at the Hilton Honors Providence Biltmore Hotel! Excellent food and superior presentation! From the beautiful ballroom to the sychronized “popping bottles” the atmosphere was outstanding;

Kudos to Ray Conaty (photographer) and Bryan Way of Bright Birch Films. I never saw you guys! (One of the greatest attributes of a wedding photographer or videographer is their ability to get the ‘shot’ without becoming the shot.) Great Job guys. Following is a little teaser of Katelyn & Kenae’s wedding day by Bryan.

For those of you that went to the wedding, stop by my Facebook page, find any Katelyn &/or Kenae Picture and leave a comment. If you enjoyed yourself, I would truly appreciate you liking my page. If you did not enjoy yourself, please message me and tell me what I could have done better, like remembering my man, Norbyyyy!

I believe in a thing called love

I believe in a thing called love

From I Believe in a Thing Called Love  by the Darkness

You’re everything I need and more
It’s written all over your face

To learn how to love

And forget how to hate

Just keep multiplying

There was no one else

I sat beside you

And became myself today

Adult Contemporary Wedding Processional Songs

Welcome to Adult Contemporary Wedding Processional Songs this week’s Wedding Ceremony Music Series feature article. A weekly series where we showcase a different genre of music for the various parts of an American Wedding ceremony. Adult Contemporary wedding processional songs consists of songs that do not really fit into one category or the other. I suggest you look at other genres such as alternative genre, pop genre as well as rock, R & B and traditional genres of songs.

The leading artist on this list is Celine Dion. Her songs transcend multiple genres of music. Her powerful vocals and melodies take you on an emotional journey.

You were my strength when I was weak 
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me

From ‘Because You Loved Me’ by Celine Dion

tells everyone in your processional how much they mean to you.

Suddenly before my eyes
Hues of indigo arise
With them how my spirit sighs
Paint the sky with stars

From Paint the Sky With Stars by Enya

Somewhere Over the Rainbow the rendition by Joe Satriani is an electric guitar instrumental you may want to consider using for your adult contemporary wedding processional song.

Just remember in the winter

Far beneath the bitter snows

Lies the seed that with the sun’s love

In the spring becomes the rose.

The Rose Bette Midler

We’re heading for something
Somewhere I’ve never been
Sometimes I am frightened
But I’m ready to learn
(‘Bout) Of the power of love

The Power of Love by Celine Dion

Two lights that shine as one

Morning glory and midnight sun

Time we’ve learned to sail above

Time won’t chane the meaning of one love

Ageless and ever evergreen

Evergreen by Barbara Streisand

Remember when choosing songs for your wedding processional, you have options with songs that on the whole may not be appropriate, but may have a lyrical section that is long enough for you to use. Factors to consider are how many are in the wedding processional and how far they will have to walk.
