Bahamas Ceremony Music

Recommended Posts

Hey Bahamas Brides!

For any of you who are getting married or have gotten married recently-- who did you use for music at your ceremony? Ours will be outside at the Versailles Gardens & Cloisters, so I am thinking of violin, guitar, or something else. Any suggestions? Thanks ladies!

Hi, I think it depends on your budget. The Bahamas has so many musicians at your disposal. We are planning to have a steel band and a DJ at ours next year. So I do have some contacts and I have close friends that live in Nassau, so just let me know maybe I can help.

Hi MrsJones2b, I was wondering if you could give me more info on your dj and if there was a local photographer and videographer that you could recommend.  Thanks!

Hi Robinla,

 

Our ceremony will also be outside at the Cloisters.  I have just started the whole planning process and was wondering if you had any luck on finding a musician for the ceremony?  Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks!

I got a DJ and was VERY happy with him!! That being said, if I could change something about my wedding, and to save money - I think the sound dock and IPOD would have been the way to go. Of course you have to have someone man the system and I don't know if I would have been able to handle the hassle of getting all the playlists together and music.

I hired the DJ md2002 recommended.  My wedding isn't until next year so I can't vouch for him yet, but so far I am happy based on our phone conversations.  Plus I met Matthew Sweeting (officiant) on our site visit and he must have said about 5 times how awesome Jose is!  He's handling everything from ceremony to cocktail hour to reception and since we're doing it that way instead of individual musicians for each, the price is not so bad.  I hadn't realized but when I booked Matthew that if you have more than 10 guests you need to rent sound equipment.  Well, Jose's DJ fee was less than Matthew's rental fee and included the equipment so I feel like I'm practically getting that music for free.  Here''s the link to his website

You'll love Jose! He did everything for us as well. We didn't have to worry about a thing as far as music goes. He also did our ceremony, went off with no issues at all. Matthew is super too.... you've made some good choices! 

 

As I said above if you absolutely have to save money an IPOD would probably work but.... it's much more relaxing if you don't have to worry about the music on your wedding day. If you can afford it, I would get a DJ.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
