ROR steel drum band

Recommended Posts

We hired the steel drum band for one hour. They will begin at 3:45. At 4:00 we will have our ceremony.

 

1. After our vows, we'd like the judge to explain the sand ceremony and then have the steel drum band play a song while we actually walk over to the table and pour the sand. I'm thinking we could also sign our marriage license along with our witnesses at this time while the guests enjoy the music. Anyone ever done this?

 

2. Since the ceremony will last until 4:25 or so, the steel band drum will only play for an additional 20 minutes. We have the list of songs they can play from this site and from Chandlyn. Any idea how many we need to pick? We have nine selected that we like...

 

3. We thought we'd have Chandlyn play her CD of the wedding march rather than the steel drum band play it. Can anyone share their experiences with this? Does the CD sound good? Did anyone really like the steel band drum's version of the wedding march? I've seen it on youtube and it's, maybe just not traditional enough for what I envision...

I personally downloaded a bunch of tunes from itunes.

 

We have 5 instrumental wedding songs - The O'Neill Brothers - one of which is the song I will walk down the aisle to "How Beautiful by O'Neill Brothers" and then 5 other songs that will play *softly* during the ceremony.

 

Right after the last "ceremony" song we have 15 songs by Jamaican Steel Drum Band, Syd Marsh & Peter Samuels. These songs will play after the ceremony, toasts and pictures.

 

We are using an iPod docking station. Just a suggestion or something to consider instead of spending the extra money...but to each's own wink.gif

I was also wondering about the steel drums...if you don't have them play at all during the actual ceremony, I assume they still count that into their time? It makes me a little torn that I would be paying for an hour, but if it's a 20 minute ceremony, would actually only have them playing for 40 minutes....

Yeah, I'm having the same problem. my mom really wants to have them for 2 hours - the ceremony, pics and cocktail hour. But thats like $700!!! I am sure I can find better ways to spend $700!!

I was hoping to hire the steel drum band for my wedding as well, but we are still not sure. Is there someone there who could control an IPOD or CD for you, so that the right music is playing at the right times? i would hate to have to ask a guest to do this, but I am not sure if Chandlyn will have someone available to do this for us. ANy ideas or has anyone had any experience with this?

I watched a wedding at ROR last week that had the steel band and they were great but I dont know if I would pay $350 for them??

Other weddings had just an IPOD playing and were equally as beautiful it depends if you want the carribean feel I guess?

    • 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.
