I-pod VS Band

Recommended Posts

I had origionally decided to have a steel drum band for my wedding ceremony. It is $350 for one hour. Now, I am pretty sure FI is getting me the new Bose portable sound box for Christmas. I don't know if I should still pay for the steel drum band or just use the sound box. I will be using the sound box for the reception.

i vote for the steel drum - that is so amazing in person and unique - you will not regret it, especially if you are only doing it for the ceremony - it is cheaper and will really create a differential between the ceremony and the reception!

It's Jamaica, mon! If you have the money for it, I think the steel band would really add to the whole ambiance and make it EXTRA special!

Ditto! :~) I think it will be more memorable that way.

if you already have it in your budget go for the band, but if you want to save then use the ipod

I would still have the steel drum band. We did the mariachi for our cocktail hour and I liked how we had something mexican, the steel drum band will give it that carribean feel. We then used our ipod for the reception.

That way I can carry my ipod wherever I go...the cocktail party, reception dinner, disco (hopefully the DJ will have a hook up or should I make cd's?)

I am getting the Bose portable Sound Box. It is small, so it can be carried easily. The sound is awesome too! It is expensive though. I believe it is going for $400. They have another model that is $300, but it is not portable.

We did our own music because we were particular about what songs we wanted played, but a steel drum band will rock and I say go for it!

 

Our wedding was in Mexico and we didn't get a Mariachi or Salsa band because we see those often where we live, but a steel drum band is less common and totally festive.

 

Maybe you can hook the Ipod up later at the reception and have it both ways?

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
