Renting the Disco

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies,

I have rented the disco for two hours following my dinner at the Plantation Restaurant. However, after reading Jerzzygirl's post about it not having very much seating...I am concerned. I was hoping we would be able to have the bride and groom's first dance, make some speeches, etc. However, I don't want 50 guests standing for 2 hours.

Do you think it would be better to rent the Plantation for another couple of hours? Can we hire the DJ for the Plantation? We are getting married on January 17th, which is a Thursday so the beach party is out.

What are the rest of you doing? I would really appreciate any input!

I went to the disco often and from what I recall there are bar stools around the perimeter of the disco and around the bar. For 50 people you should be okay if bar stools will do. IMO if you want it more spread out and relaxed you should check into Plantation and see if the DJ can go there.

 

This is the only pic I can find, it's a little small and dark but that's why we liked it...lol. This was taken sitting at the bar facing the dance floor:

We are having the dj for 2 hours at the Plantation. I figure that he can introduce us, we'll do our first dance and then speeches, then he can play music while we eat dinner. Then, I rented out the disco for 2 hours, thinking we can just go and dance there.

Right now I have the Plantation booked for dinner for 2 hours and then I booked the disco from 9-11. I know you can have a DJ in the plantation if you want - just let Chandlyn know.

 

Lizz - I really like your idea of having the DJ for the 2 hours at dinner too?? Hmmm... I'll have to think about that. Also, I thought about increasing the Plantation to 4 hours and just having the DJ there the whole time. It's a little more expensive that way but it might be worth it. Too many decisions...

If you allready have the plantation rented out for 2 hours, I would just stay with that add the 2 hours and get a DJ there. This way you dont have to move the whole party to dance. There are bar stools surrounding the bar in the disco but no tables and chairs.

Ladies, Can anyone tell me what kind of music do they play at the disco? Should I make my own CD? Do they offer a variety or just jamaican music.?

Thanks.....

we're bringing our own music and asking the DJ to mix in his/her own music.

We brought our own music also to have our 1st dance to. But we didnt rent the disco. I cancelled the reservation and we had our 1st dance on the beach during our cocktail hour. The steel drums stopped playing for just a few mins and Chandlyns assistant just put on the CD for us. The club plays typical US club music.

We are getting the plantation for 2 hours and then the disco for 2 hours. We planned it this way for budgeting purposes. We are not paying for the open bar at dinner. If we had the dancing at the plantation we would end up paying $10/person for the bar, $500 extra for plantation, and $300 more for the DJ. It made more sense jsut to pay $250 for the disco and get all the same services.

We have decided to just the rent out the plantation for the 4 hours along with the DJ as well. I figured I don't want my guests going from one side of the resort to the other just to dance and have fun!!

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
