    Hey everybody, my wedding is at the Riu Negril in Jamaica and I have recently been advised to bring my own music to have the DJ play for the reception. Could anyone tell me how their DJ was.....in jamaica?..... If you brought your own CD's, would burned CD's work okay? I know some older systems won't play a burned CD. Has anyone tried putting all thier music on a MP3 player or Ipod? Any ideas or help would be fantastic!!


    Thanks!

      Thanks! I think i'll make playlists on a few different things to make sure I have backup plans. Good to know that the IPod worked for you though!

        well that sucks! We were planning on doing that; guess I have to look more into that now...

        Thanks for the heads up Mo!

          I was going to burn a couple CD's for during the ceremony. Those should be ok, right? Chandlyn said she has a CD player...

          Are you just saying there may be problems if the DJ used the burnt cd's?

            I just wanted to say that I burned a CD with about 12-15 songs on it for my wedding ceremony. I gave them to Chandlyn who said it was fine. It worked perfectly. She had a CD player and played each song that I told her to play at what time. I did NOT have to have each song burned on to a different CD. I don't know when you would ever have to do that. It sounded perfect and there were no problems. She then put them on shuffle to play while we had our pictures taken. So you should be absolutely fine with a burned CD during your ceremony at the RIUOR.

              Great to hear Cali, thanks for the info!! And I think that is such a great idea to have some music playing while we get our photos taken, I may just have to borrow that one!! By the way, we all cant wait to hear how your wedding went.....

                Thanks ladies...

                I'm just going to burn a few songs for the ceremony. I'll let the DJ take over at the reception.

                I'm glad to hear it worked out!

                    We had burned music on CDs for our reception at the disco at Riu Ocho Rios and they worked absolutely fine! The DJ was wonderful!
                    nenaweds - I'm not MoWife but I did have the Steel Drum Band as well and they were great, all the guests said it really made the wedding that much more special and tropical!
