I didn't meet with the DJ prior to the wedding, but if thats something that you wanted to do, you should ask your WC. If meeting with the DJ is not possible, I would highly suggest that if you have specific songs that you would like played, you bring them on a CD & make sure you label the CD's. For example, if you want to be introduced at the Plantation, have a CD marked "intro song". If you want to hear certain songs played during the reception, I would put all of those on 1 CD & label it "reception songs to be played during dinner", etc...The more info you have for the DJ, the better. You could give these CD's to the WC to give to the DJ, or give them to a designated member of the bridal party or a close family friend, to give to the DJ before you & your husband are announced.
The chairs that I had were brown, plastic type chairs which were free so I'm not too sure about white folding chairs. In 2008, the chair covers were btwn $10-$12 per cover but I don't recall how much the sashes were. Sorry!
Hors d'oeuvres :
The hors d'oeuvres that you select, will likely be served during your reception at the Plantation. You could probably have them served on the beach but ofcourse that would probably involve some sort of set up fee, etc.
The only thing that my guests were served on the beach immediately following our ceremony, was champagne & Rum Punch.
