      We haven't decided yet...but we are getting the steel drum band. So maybe we can do it then, with them? I think that'd be extra memorable having our first dance on the beach to a steel drum band!

      We're having the Mammee Bay dinner too, since it's semi-private I don't think we'd be introduced. Are you renting the disco? Maybe that's where you could do those things.

        i was thinking the disco also, but then i figured it might be a lil awkward for us to be introduced after we eat.. im just trying to figure out how our entrance would go at mammeebay... i remember reading that some brides brought their ipod doc and played music during the reception dinner..im thinking about doing that..

        but it would be nice to have your dance on the beach..i just cant picture how everything would flow into each other..ceremony, coctail hour, 1st dance, pics..

            You can always do a private reception at the plantation...the restaurant is entirely yours therefore you can do just about anything you want...Me and my fiance as well as the bridal party will be introduced by the MC with music...it's $500 for 2hours $1000 for 4 hours.

              for those eating at the plantation, will there be a system set up for music? Anybody know?

                it depends...i think if you book the dj then of course however, if you arent using the dj, you may have to provide your own sound system....or maybe they will allow you to rent it. I will ask Chandlyn and get back to you soon....

                  Is there a minimum number of guests required to have the reception at The Plantation? I am looking into the Ipod idea I have seen on here. We have our own speakers but I am sure one of our friends has the nice loud Bose speaker system for the ipod. Those work well and the cost would be FREE.

                    I believe it's usually if you are having more than 50 guests that they recommend the plantation.

                      You can always do your reception (after dinner at Mammee Bay) at Seagrape and have your first dance on the beach.
