      I have to say that your pretty amazing, answering all of these questions!!!! Someone asked about the steel band and if they sang; if so, do you have a choice of songs, or do they have a set list? Stupid question, does anyone know what a 'mento' band is Also, you were there for 2 weeks? How was the weather for the 2 weeks? Sorry, last but not least, did you find that it was getting dark by the time you were married at 4:30?
      And BTW, CONGRATS!

        Thanks!
        We did use the steel band for the walk back down the aisle and then for an hour during the cocktail reception. We didn't have anyone sing...but as our room overlooked the beach area where brides were getting married, I'm fairly certain I heard the steel band with a singer. That would be a great question to ask Chandlyn!

          Thank you! It's not hard to answer questions about something that was so wonderful!
          We didn't choose any songs for them...I guess we thought since we're in Jamaica, and they do so many weddings...they would know what to play! We had recorded music for the walk down the aisle, and then the steel band started playing on the walk back down the aisle.
          I have no idea what a 'mento' band is!
          We were at the RIU Ocho Rios for one week with friends and family. There were some people staying on, so we decided to honeymoon the second week at the Sandals Whitehouse. (I have to say I liked the atmosphere at the RIU much better!). The weather during the first week was phenomenal. It was absolutely beautiful every day, and only had a couple showers during the night. What was so great about the RIU is that everything is covered. The ceilings are so high, you feel like you're outside...but the show and bars and everything are under cover! The second week we were closer to Negril. The weather was nice until about 4pm everyday, and then the clouds would move in and the rain would be torrential. I've never seen anything like it! Our sandals were floating in the water standing beneath our loungers at the pool! That's when we would head back to our room, have a nap, and get ready for dinner :)
          I really wanted to have a sunset wedding. However, things didn't work out that way, as my husband didn't want to break the tradition of seeing the bride before the wedding. The sun doesn't really set until 5:50 pm in January. The ceremony started at 4:30 pm and only lasted about 20 minutes, and then we had pictures directly after. We seemed to have more than enough time!
