    Hello Ladies,

    Wow! A month and a half before I had to the ROR and tie the knot! All the information on here has been extrememly helpful, but I still have one question.

    I was wondering if any past/future brides who booked the Seagrape beach and just rented the cd player and speakers (instead of hiring a DJ). My thoughts are that I would probably be bringing my own music anyway, so why not just save some money and play it ourselves?! If you could help me out, it would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks so much!

      I don't have any solid answers for you but I did a search and found this thread for you:

      http://bestdestinati...om/forum/t13132

      From what I read there have been brides who rented a dj for the seagrape ($150/hr - but the prices may have changed) and some that have brought their own docking station - speakers/ipod - and used that for their music.

      Also, I'm thinking if you want it to be private you have to pay $10/person for open bar...but don't quote me on this.

      You are probably best to get in touch with Chandlyn this way you get more straight answers.

      HTH!

          I originally had a DJ booked for my night at the Seagrape. BUT at $150/hr (probably @$450+ total), I decided to forgo it, and bought a Bose Sound dock for $200 (on sale at futureshop during boxing-day week sales. It may not be as loud as the DJ with speakers but I think I'm cool with it!

                I may be in trouble I am having my reception at Seagrape and bringing my own I-Pod, but I assumed they would have the dock there for us to use?

                  We are bringing a docking station, does anyone know if they have a place to plug them in?

                    They don't have a docking station for you to use and there are plugs available.

                    Maybe an idea is that if there is another bride that is going to be there at the same time and perhaps you can borrow it..just a thought

                    Good luck!!

                      Amagee, you can go to Future Shop or any electronics store and buy a small one for $200 and under. You may want one that is battery operated as well just in case.
