    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.
