    Hi, Ladies

    I apologize if there is already a new thread for this (i didn't see one) - was just wondering what all of you are planning to do for music.

    I know that I've heard that a lot of people are planning on using a CD. Has anyone heard of hiring live music? Thinking of string quartet or a harpist or something ... I'm assuming you can find that sort of thing in Jamaica?

      We're having a Steel Drum Band for our welcome party, and a Reggae Band for the reception. We were also offered a Mento Band or Saxophonist, so I'm sure if you want live music, you will be able to find it!

        We will have a guitar trio at the ceremony and are hiring a live band and a DJ to play in between their sets at our reception.
        We both love the idea of live music and can't wait! :)

          We are gonna just have the stereo playing while I walk down the aisle. Do you all think it will be loud enough especially since I am walking a little distance? Should I bring something to play the music
          If you want to play your own cd's during the ceremony, Chandlyn has a cd player so you don't have to bring one!

            We're hiring the steel drum band during the ceremony/pics for an hour. We also rented the disco for our party later on, and we're bringing a lot of our own music for that!

                I would like to have a couple of acoustic guitars, or a string quartet. I wonder if that will be possible to find there, and what kind of hurdles I'll have to jump through to get them onto the property ... Here's hoping ...

                  Does anyone know if the steal band does requests if you give them sheet music? We would like to get married to a song that would sound beautiful on the drums.
