Steel Drum Band at SGOR

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I really want a steel drum band to play at my cocktail reception, but it is $600 for 1 hour at Sandals resorts. For those who had a steel drum band - especially one at a Sandals - is it worth the $$$?

 

From what I have seen on the internet it looks awesome and I feel like we will regret it if we don't get one. Any advice would really help!!

Eh...spend the money...you're only getting married once (I hope)!!!! ;-)

 

Plus you and Shawn can have your first dance to it. You should get some steel drum music for the AHR!!

I really wanted a Steel Band too, but couldn't bring myself to pay the $600 fee. The wedding only lasts 20 minutes and they wouldn't allow me to have them for a half hour instead.

 

While I think the price is high, I think you should splurge if you think it's worth it. I never saw anyone use one during the 12 days I was at SGOR. I did hear the trio though and thought they were really good. How much do they charge for the trio? I think it may be less...

I think the trio is cheaper - maybe $250/hour.

 

I think I am going to get them to play during the 1 hour cocktail reception. I would love if they could play during the ceremony, but $600 for 20 minutes is ridiculous.

 

Hopefully the $600 is worth it.

I say go for it!!! I think we all have those things that we splurged on for our weddings, and just how many people do you know that have gotten married in Jamaica, let alone had a steel drum band play at their reception?!?

If i was you i would go with the trio during the cocktail hour. it seems more practical and you guest will love it as they mingle around. I think it is a better idea all around. $600 foe 20min is outragous!!

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
