    Hi Bobbi-Francis,

    Have you arranged for equipment. I was told that if you bring your own dj they must have their own equipment as well.

      What time is your wedding? Are you doing dinner at any of the restaurants? I'm considering renting the disco or Seagrapes. I think the disco is $250 US for 2hours and includes the DJ and Bar (9-11) not sure how private though.

      My wedding is @ 4 pm and I'm booked right now for Mammee's at 6:30. I want to try and keep everything flowing w/o any breaks and w/o moving locations. ie.. dinner and party part of the reception at different locations.
      My wedding is at 4 p.m. and we also have reservation for Mammee's at 6:30.
      We booked the Seagrape for 2h: 9-11h. It's 10$ per person for open bar we are 35 so 350$(It's stupid to pay for open bar at an all inclusive but I wanted to be outside).
      I think it's 250$ for the disco and it just open at 11 p.m. for the public so you have the disco for your group.
      I think that way everything will be flowing and not to rush: we have 2h between the ceremony and dinner for the pictures and we have 2h30 for dinner.

          We're using the one provided by the resort but we're bringing our own playlist and probably our IPods

            We're also going to use the DJ I think. It was a debate of that or the IPod but I think that with our luck the IPod will break or something! My FI has a "no play" list so thats a start!!! But we will have some of our own CDs as well.

              Chandlyn confirmed with me that we can use the resort's equipment for a $75 per hour charge.

                Hi Bobbie

                Oh, ok. Thanks. I guess since I didn't ask specifically I didn't get that answer. That's the pleasure of this site and the people on it! Thanks again!

                  Hi Ocho Bride,

                  My wedding date is 8/16/08/ I did get that same info about the disco opening up at 11 for the public.

                  I'm not sure about the amount of people I'm going to have at this point so I'm trying to hold off a little longer to confirm if I would even be able to use Mammee's since it only seats 50 or so comfortably. I have a feeling I'll end up at Seagrapes or Plantation for sure. Thought about poolside, but I think $50 pp when you have a group of 75 or more is too much. I agree, I hate the fact that u have to pay for open bar. Guess just one of those things!!

                  How do u plan to introduce your wedding party, etc if you have one? Are you doing this at dinner or at Seagrapes?

                    I think if your more then 50 the plantation is the best way to go and it's less expensif then having dinner at seagrape or poolside. I'm not sure about introducing my wedding party....probably during dinner...
                    I think the evening at the seagrape will be fun just to be able to dance in the sand...lol

                      We had our dinner/dancing at the plantation & used the DJ at the resort. They were great - you can give requests to Chandlyn at your meeting. They played great songs!!! 150/hr.
