Steel Drum Band ROR

Recommended Posts

I had the band for my wedding and I LOVED it!! It really made my Jamaican wedding perfect, when the ceremony was over we danced around with champagne and got some really original pictures!! It was expensive... but worth every penny!!

I am having a major issue on this, It is the one and only thing that my FI has been adamant about that he wants! We were going to go for 2 hours then then increase happened, so he was like well I at least want it for 1 hour, now that its only 6 weeks away and we have had to pay our taxes hes like well I am cutting it we don't have the money, so I think my mom and I are going to do it for him as a surprise. We are doing the free cocktail hour(this just come with rum punch and fruit punch) from 5-6 (our ceremony is at 4) at the ceremony location that way people aren't just standing around waiting for pics and I think I am going to have them play during that time!

For those of you who have rented the steel drum band for one hour, did you have them play during the ceremony and for another half hour after? or did you get them for an hour after the ceremony during champagne toast or coctail hour? My wedding is at 11:00 am and would like to have either champagne or appetizers for an hour after and unsure about what to do.

We had them for our recent wedding and to be honest I can barely even remember what they played after the 2 songs I specifically asked for! My mind was in such a cloud!! I just wanted to make it to the gazebo without bawling!

 

When we had spoke to Chandlyn about what to play I asked for the Canon in D while I walked down the aisle. But they played it as the whole wedding party came down! I guess I should have clarified that a little better. They also started playing the last procession song way early! After that, things were a blur!! I had intentions of tipping but after the ceremony I was swept away to take pics!

 

We are thrilled we had them as it certainly put the jamaican flavor in the wedding and our guests totally enjoyed them!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
