        I dont know the name of my dJ but you can ask keisha who was the dj for my wedding and im sure she will her you. Tell her it was for Daritza and Elvis' wedding may 21. my ceremony was at 2pm on the beach gazebo next to where they have the beach ceremony. I originally wanted the beach reception but so happy that i let my husband choose. I dont like the fact that you can see the gazebo from where they hold the beach reception. Guest will start wondering why the gazebo wasnt used. The ceremony i saw on the beach was really beautiful though. I didnt have the steel drum band but i didn see a wedding that had the band. honestly it sounded great but the guests werent really paying attention to it. If you dont have a band they automatically put a speaker with a dj to put the songs u want to walk in with. I didnt choose a song beause it wasnt a big deal to me. The guy again did a great job. They take care of everything for you and i lovedd that. I didnt worry about a thing. Just enjoy everything. Honestly i kept it simple. Ill tell u what i didn in my initial meeting. I chose the $40 bouquet from shangri-la for my bridesmaids which i thought i wasnt going to be crazy about and i ended up loving. I chose the $60 bouquet for me and was happy with it because like i said those little things arent a big deal to me. I just wanted my guests to have a good time. my bouquet consisted of 12 white roses. My centerpieces i did choose b4 getting to the hotel.  We also included hors d'oeuvres because we had a huge gap from 3 to 6:30. we were glad we did that because my guests go to munch on something and relax b4 dinner n partying. that was   that was  d tffthat was $12pp. with open bar. the DJ cost us $600 for 4hrs. They take care of pretty much everything else. I cant think of anything else but feel free to ask questions.

We get married July 8th and are having ceremony on the beach at 4pm, dinner at plantation and then poolside reception with a DJ. What time was your ceremony? Did you have the steel drum band? Seems so expensive at $490 an hour but seems like it would be cool. Any advice you have would be great. How was Keisha- she has been very good about responding to my emails so I'm feeling pretty good about things.

        Congrats to you!!!

                Ok if anyone can help me with some information on the actual wedding ceremony. What is the difference between civil, religious, legal etc? Did you write your own vows, ring ceremony, sand ceremony wording and then just give it to Keisha to have the Reverand read or how does that work?? Keisha wasnt able to give me a copy of what the Reverand typically says at the ceremony so I would just like to write it all down myself and have him read it I think.? Also do you know where in the ceremony to do the sand ceremony? is it before vows/rings??? Please help me! Thanks girls. THis thread has been very helpful. Only one month left so we are trying to finish all planning. Cant wait!

                  We wrote our own vows & also provided the minister with the wording for the sand ceremony. You can provide wording for any parts of the ceremony that you want. Our minister did an excellent job of incorporating his own wording into what we provided.

                   

                  I know there are explanations of the differences btwn civil/religious/legal lurking around somewhere. I did a search & found some info in the threads below:

                   

                  http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/thread/36593/civil-renewal-religious

                   

                  "...at ROR, all ceremonies are performed by a minister, but if you're having a civil ceremony, the minister will not mention God. If you're having a renewal, its performed by a minister too, but has no legal bearing."

                  http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/thread/24326/ror-ceremonies-symbolic-vs-religious 

                   

                   

                   

                  Here are some threads that contained the ceremony & wedding vows script:

                   

                  http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/thread/32386/ror-wedding-vows-script-from-chandlyn-got-it-today

                   

                  http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/thread/45307/ceremony-wording

                   

                   

                  Also, if I remember correctly, our sand ceremony was performed after our vows but before we signed our wedding documents.
