    I leave tonight at midnight! Does anyone have anything that you want me to look into, or take pictures of, while I am down there?

      Have fun! I'm looking forward to hearing how it all goes. First and foremost, enjoy your time down there and don't get too caught up with fulfilling everyone else's requests.

      But since you asked... I would love for them to be able to play music while our guests are arriving (maybe 15 minutes before the ceremony) and for a bit afterwards while we are having the champagne. Since there is already someone there playing music for our ceremony, I'm wondering if they would accommodate this request. Do you know, or would you mind asking?

          Albellis,

           

          I asked (little while ago) about having the steel drum band playing music about 15 min before the ceremony, and they did say that they can do that.....

            Thanks Krista! I forget what the paperwork says - is the steel drum band a per hour charge? Are they charging you for that extra time? I'm not going to be hiring any additional musician(s) for the ceremony. I'm just going to use who they provide with the sound system. I would think that since they are already set up it wouldn't be a big deal, but you never know. I should be starting to finalize things with the WC soon since my wedding is 3 months away, so I will double with her as well.

              Krista- The Steel Drum Band is extra. The 2012 price was $350/hr.

                  albellis, we are gonna pay extra to have the steel drum band play, but from all the facebook pages and post on here, i dont see where the ceremony last longer than a 1/2hr so we figured they can play for 15 min before for the walking down the isle and then for 15 min afterwards..as for the sound system i dont see why they couldnt play music a for alittle bit before hand...wow 3 months...im stressing out now and mine is in JUNE!!! lol we are just now getting everyone booked for our stay :) we are then gonna go honeymoon for a few days at catcha falling star in Negril. Im still trying to figure out the wole semi private-private dinner stuff vs private cocktail party stuff, and all the little extra things i want to take down there with me...We did book our photographer, what did everyone decide to do about a photographer? we booked Roan Robinson with Candid Exspression.....

                    This is looking from the entrance to the left. 

                     

                     

                     

                     

                    This is also looking to the left of the entrance, just on the other side of the meridian with the water wheel thingy. You can see the buffet on the far left wall, that is where appetizers are served. 

                     

                     

                    This is looking straight ahead from the entrance. The bar is immediately in front of you, and then the chairs and buffet to the left. 

                     

                     

                    This is looking from the back left corner. The buffet is on my left, the entrance is on my right. 

                     

                     

                     

                    The Cajun restaurant is really beautiful!!!!!

                      For the music: I had the reggae band. The wedding coordinator said most weddings only last 15-20 minutes, so there was a lot of time before and after for the band to play. For me I told everyone 3:30 for the wedding to start and planned to be 'fashionably' late and arrive at 3:40. That's pretty much what happened. So they had music playing at least for those 10 minutes, for the walk down the aisle, and then for the recession and champagne toast, and even a bit after. 1 hour is definitely enough for the entire ceremony.
