    I am trying to decide between having a DJ or a Reggae band for the reception? What are you all doing for music? I am also looking for feedback from people that has already had their wedding and how was the DJ or Band?

      We're not having a band or DJ for the reception. There will only be 10 guests, including us, and the dancing will be limited to our first dance, father/daughter, and mother/son. I'm burning a CD with the songs we will have played on it, and I'm counting on the WC to take it from there. I've heard that some people have used their Ipod. We're having a 1 hour private cocktail reception at SGOR, so I plan on burning other songs as well just to play in the background while we're celebrating.

      When in May is your wedding? All of us may brides can officially say that we're getting married next month!

        I'm going with the DJ. My mom really wanted the reggae band but the DJ worked out best cost-wise...

          I am going with the DJ. I think they will be able to play more music that my guests and I like and can dance to.

            I got married last May at Sandals Dunns River and used a steel drum band for the ceremony . They were really good. We had a quick reception (1/2) hour and used a CD. They only had a little boom box, but I only had about 15 people at the outside reception, so it worked out ok. Be warned, they did not have a ipod player last year, which would have really helped me , but they may have one now. But I would go either way with the dj or the reggae band because they both would probably be good.

              I'm not doing either..we will probably just do some dancing at the disco. All that stuff is nice but not really important to us.

                I thought that the CD was only for the processional, recessional and first dance. If I can use it for the reception I will probably bring a CD wit music to use for the reception.

                  We are doing a live band and a DJ for when they are resting in between sets.

                    We definately used the cd for the reception. I had to borrow one from the wedding coordinator because I left my orginal one at home. They did not have a ipod player last year, which would have been great. But the wedding coordinators are really helpful.

                      I went with the DJ & loved it. They played great songs that everyone could dance to & they played requests!
