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!!

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!!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
