      Did you have to tell the steel band what to play or did they do their own thing?

              The wedding DVD is through the photoshop. You pay the photoshop and they bring in a guy to do it. It costs 300.00 for 45 minutes. You can get it for longer, but I think that is long enough.

              The disco with the lights on was really good. It wasn't really bright - it was the way you would expect a wedding dance hall to be. It is somewhat tacky inside (the ways have speckled carpet on them) but it is really good. Out of all the dance options I liked either the beach( seagrape when rented) or the disco. I would not try and mix you wedding dance with the beach party as you can't be sure which day they are going to have it and there are too many people and it is dark and most people would have to sit on beach lounge chairs. Sorry for all the rambling. Hope that helps.

              The DJ was good. I would bring some music especially if you want some music for older guests.

                We rented the steel band for an hour for the ceremony. Although I think they ended up playing a bit longer. Chandlyn will ask you what you would like them to play for your wedding march - she gave me the option of traditional( that is what I chose) and some other song. However I am sure if you had another song in mind they may be able to do it. The other songs they played were good. Out of all the upgrades this really was my favorite and I think all of the guests enjoyed it while they waited for the wedding to start and for the rum punch after the wedding. If you get them to play a cd they have a little stereo that they set up which didn't look all that professional with cords strung accross the beach and set up either on the sand or on a chair.

                    Yes, you book the videographer thru the photoshop at the Riu.
