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....

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?

    • 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?
