Steel pans for ceremony

Recommended Posts

We are thinking about having a steel pan trio for our ceremony. I am thinking Canon in D or Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring for the maids to walk in, and then One Love for the recessional. NO idea what I want to use for my processional song. Any ideas?? It can be traditional or not, we are kind of doing a mix.

I am having the steel drum band as well. I was thinking over the rainbow for the bridesmaids and for myself Canon in D and also One Love for the recessional.

 

Have you been on youtube listening to the songs. We are also having our first dance on the beach to the steel drums and we have chosen Can't stop falling in love with you. I pretty much have all the songs orgainized I want them to play lol I think I have to much time on my hands right now :)

I've also chosen Over the Rainbow by Iz for my bridesmaids to walk down on but have not yet decided on what song I will walk down in.

Since the ceremony is only about 20-30 minutes, and minimum time you can rent the steel drum band is about an hour, can you add the leftover time for the reception? How does it work? Sorry if it sounds like a dumb question. LOL

My girlfriend had this in Jamaica. IT WAS AWESOME. Her band plated for 20 minuted before we came down and then they played as we all came down the isle. I forget what they played though! But I remember it was awesome!

Krista - I think if you email the wedding co-ordinator she might be able to give you a list. I remember somewhere on these boards I had found a list. maybe if you search steel drum it might come up. I am going to email my co-ordinator when the time comes with my requested list and see if they can play the songs I want. I am pretty sure most of the songs I have picked are very popular on the steel drums. But I am sure there is one or 2 they wont know with my luck lol

 

sherryl joy - As far as I know you rent them for 1 hour. So basically during the ceremony you are still paying for them even thou they are not playing. So really you are paying for an hour but only getting like 40 mins.

We are having 2 sets of steel pans set up. They are going to play at the ceremony and then head over to our cocktail hour location (where the 2nd set will be set up) and will play there for the duration of the cocktail hour. We have a full band for the reception.

    • 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?
