Is it worth hiring entertainment at Riu?

Recommended Posts

I wondering if it would be overkill and even necessary to hire the entertainment for $300 bucks at Riu if the same form of entertainment is featured at the Beach party[flame throwers and dancers]

 

Past brides who were able to see the beach party, do you think the entertainment would be worth it the very next night for 15 mins for $300?

 

really torn, but want to make sure guests are entertained and have a memorable experience... need help...

Now this is coming from a bride who was on a shoestring budget, but IMHO it doesn't seem worth it since they will see the same performance at the beach party. I think hiring the steel band to play for an hour at your reception would be more worth the $$$$.

Hi, I'm getting married at the Riu, I didn't know you could hire entertainment. We are hiring a steal band to play, but we weren't really sure what to do later on. Is there different enteraiment to chose from ?

I wouldn't spend the money. Lots of my guests were ready to call it a night after dinner (including me!) and the folks that wanted to stay up congregated around the show area for some drinks. I agree with the previous posters that hiring the steel drum band for an hour would be a better use of $350! We loved the steel drum band!

I agree with Courtney. Why pay for them to see the same thing twice?

You can also hire flame throwers & dancers to perform at your reception. They also perform at the beach party. If you're interested just ask Chandlyn & she will give you the price.

i contacted the entertainment manager at Riu and he quoted $300... i think i will just hire the steel drum band for the cocktail hour...... we will do music on IPOD for reception....

 

Past brides what kind of tempo did the steel band play... uptempo or mellow moods.... not sure of what kinda tempo i would want during cocktails after ceremony b/c its more so for pics ......

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
