    Trying to figure out music for the wedding, my FI loves the idea of having steel drum band, but it appears that Dreams doesn't offer it. Does anyone know of an outside vendor in the Punta cana area that we can hire?

    They have the "trio" but it is typicaly slower paced music and just not the same. We want more latin feel , fast and fun.

    Suggestions are greatly appreciated!

      I don't know of any offhand, but try asking your wedding coordinator. He/she may be able to set that up for you. :) Good luck!

        I dont know about that but I would also suggest emailing your WC and see what she says. I asked her for info on the dancers but she has to get back to me. However she did mention that for the low fee of $800 we can have fireworks for 10 minutes!!!! yikes!

              yup, unfortunately I am serious...that seems ridiculously steep for a few mins of fireworks!!!! Lets just say we're going to pass on fireworks, LOL. She never got back to me about the dancers...hmmm.

                yeah it seems that the past few weeks I havent' heard from her much either. Taking a bit longer to respond. O well - I guess I have some time and if I were in the midst of having my wedding this month I figure I would expect the attenion to go to me first. I guess wait and see!

                  If you can get something on cd they will play it for you I know from experience that the speakers are very clear and loud and they are very good at playing the cds and you would save the money. Your music also comes out very clear on the wedding video if you plan on purchasing one.

                    Thx for the info. You had a recent wedding there, nice!!! Did you pick one of their packages for the reception, if so how did they set up the bar and was it an extra fee? Sorry for to bombard you with questions.

                      Thanks for the info on the background. I think that we are going to opt to use them. It will be so festive to have that music at our wedding. Now we just need to decide if we use them for ceremony and cocktail hour or just after the ceremony....
