Steel drum band at rmb? Audio samples?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone who hired a steel drum band at any of the Riu's (especially MoBay!) have an audio or video sample of them playing? And did you hire them through the hotel or outside?? We are thinking about hiring one for the welcome party. And while we are on that subject, does anyone know the options for having a welcome party on the beach....maybe like a bonfire type thing (after dinnertime) with either a steel drum band or just our ipod and speakers...and of course drinks?! Thanks!!

We had the steel band for our ceremony and for the cocktail hour on the beach right after. I have no audio or video samples yet. I loved them. I hired them threw Chantelle the wedding coordinator at the resort. I listened to them on Youtube before I went. I didn't care what songs they played. All I asked for was a certain song when I walked down the aisle. All you mention can be arranged with the resort wedding coordinator. Happy Planning :-)

I would love to have them for those same two hours as well! Do you mind me asking how much that was for you? I would love to walk down the aisle to canon in d on the steel drums and the wedding march as the ceremony ends! other than that, I don't really care what they play either! Was the cocktail hour right there on the beach by the way?

It was $700.00. Its $350.00 an hour. That's the same song I chose. I actually forgot to tell Chantelle before hand. I told her as she was walking me to the ceremony site. She walked over and told them just before I came down the aisle. Yes, it was right on the beach at the ceremony site.

Great thanks for the info. Also, was the cocktail hour included with your package (we just want to do the Free Package) or did you have to pay extra for that?? Thanks again!

We did the free package and just added stuff on to it. The champagne toast is included. We paid extra for the Jamaican cocktail hour which was $8.00 a person.

    • 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?
