      Hi Gals!

      I'm hoping to get some of your feedback on song selection.  I've decided to go with the steel drum band for my wedding ceremony.  The part where I'm getting hung up is what song I should walk down the aisle to.  I'm looking for something contemporary, not the traditional stuff, but I'm struggling to pick a song because I can't seem to wrap my mind around what the song will sound like on the steel drums.  I've searched all over youtube and itunes for songs on the steel drums but can't find what I'm looking for.  Any suggestions would be a huge help.  Thanks!!

I remember being there and I remember SOOO many things going wrong on the day that we had already planned out and thought would be perfect.... In the end we ate married, we can look back and laugh at some of the things we stressed about because overall, it wasn't just the day that we had to look back on, it was the whole week we had to make memories with family and friends.

        We got a link to a sneak peek if our wedding photos last night, they were done by Merrick cousley ( who by the way is not only an amazing wedding photographer but he lifted my spirits when so many things went wring and on top of it all, our wedding was down poured on! I don't know what unwound have done without him!!) our trash the dress pictures are coming this weekend, I will be sure to post them.

        Hope this makes you girls feel a little better, looking ahead to your big day, because no matter how many things went wrong... That what made our wedding special and unique to us!

            Hey Ashley... Try think link: http://www.youtube.c...?v=5MVk6kFDzIY.  It has a whole bunch of different wedding songs on steel drums and is a good starting point at least!

              @kenwedjam0902: I'm having a major issue b/c I may also have ~150 guests at my wedding. Can you please let me know how GBP handled such a  large # of guests. Also,

               

              Where did you have your wedding (beach, gazebo) and was the space tight?

              Did you have a cocktail hour , where, and how was that handled? Is it $15 per guest for the open bar?

              Which private reception location did you choose?  If Dolce Vita, did you have an issue with roaches? Can they do a Jamaican buffet there or are there restrictions for Italian food?

               

              Thanks for any info you can provide.

                Hi Espejo2be!  I was wondering if you had any problems getting those blue flowers?  What were they called and where did you get them from?

                Thanks!!!

                  What are you guys looking at for your overall budget including your trip there, rings, honeymoon (if you're having one), dress, reception... EVERYTHING.  Just wondered if I'm on track!!!  Everything really adds up!
