ROR Slide Shows

Recommended Posts

Hey Jocelyn, I canâ€t think of a cheaper way to show your slid show at your reception. But I was thinking that if you have a suite, you could have a little mixer for your guests to drop by and/or wander in & out or just chill for a while. You could just connect your camcorder, portable DVD, laptop, or whatever to the TV and have in running while you have your mixer in the suite…. I think I saw some where on here that someone had a little gathering in their room and the resort brought up drinks at no additional cost. Just an idea, Iâ€ll keep thinking about the BIG PICTURE (at the reception) :-)

I know that this is NOWHERE near as fun as having a projector and screen.... but you could always just use a laptop. I know, it sucks compared to your vision!

Ooh, or do you think ROR would let us BOTH rent it and just split the cost, since we're only a few days off? Probably not....just a thought though!
Hi Heidi! I have sent Chandlyn a couple of emails and did actually throw out to her the idea of maybe buying one as an investment for future weddings. If she doesn't go for that I'll ask her if we could split the rental costs....if you are really interested in it that is. I don't know if she'll go for that either because there are a few days between us and I don't know how their rental would work. I'll let you know how my conversations go with her!

I think they would set it up wherever you request...pending power sources and weather of course, but there are always extension cords!

Right now we are thinking of having dinner at Mammee Bay because I think we'll have less than 50 people and then we have the disco reserved for our reception/first dance/slideshow after dinner.

That's a great idea too... if all else fails. Another option I was thinking of is if they have a tv and dvd player that can be moved to our reception. Not optimal viewing but bigger than my laptop anyways.

Ok….how many guests are you going to have and then how many tables do you think you would havehuh.gif Another idea (if you are going to have a small guest list) is possibly having a little portable DVD player on each table (or at different sections of the table if it’s a long rectangle) and having a copy playing on each DVD player. The DVD’s are battery operated so you wouldn’t have to worry about the power supply… the battery should last for a couple of hours so your guests could watch the slid show while at the reception dinner at their leisure. Everyone has portable DVD player’s theses days, And I’m sure a lot of people plan to bring theirs on the long plane ride, so everyone who has one could just loan theirs…(and a dependable, younger cousin, niece/nephew, could be given the very special job of ensuring all the DVD players are accounted for and up and ready to play the slid show).

That's a great idea Davina! I may use it! Chandlyn got back to me and we can also use a tv and dvd player. We may go with that...not the best but better than paying $350.

I was quoted 350 at first for the projector, but in my last e-mail from chandlyn she said it was 200 to rent.

 

Did anyone rent one..I am also concerned where they would set it up

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
