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!!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
