    Is anyone using the DJ included in the resort Divine package? Dj Swank? I wanted to know his pricing on extra hours and a screen etc.. and he has yet to get back to me after emailing him over a month ago. I'm debating using an outside dj at this point!!

        Past Brides..how did you get you DIY stuff to the resort?  Like centerpieces, etc..did you pack it all or did anybody ship it right to the resort?  I'm guessing that is pretty expensive..

         

        We plan on doing Thermal Coffee Mugs - which would be tough to pack cause of space and cost of luggage these days.  Also, our centerpieces are going to be colored bottles...would be even more tough to pack cause of them being glass...???

         

        Any thoughts/ideas??

         

        P.S.  Love you guys!!!  msnwink.gif

            We packed everything with us as we've heard of so many horror stories but then again we did not bring that much. We took a large cardboard box and just filled it with stuff and checked it.  Make sure to bring receipts with you and read the the thread on this as it came in handy!

             

            If you do decide to ship, it will be really expensive to ship and get back to you and if it gets stuck in customs, you are basically screwed. So just prepare yourself to do without if you decide to ship it.

                Go to the General Tab and go to the Travel Forum. Lots of good stuff.

                  Hey Ladies,

                   

                  OMG so I dont have too much time to write at the moment, but I want to let you know that we had our wedding on the 6th and it went amazingly. I could not have asked for anything more. Everything went smoothly and the little minor things that didnt, went completely unnoticed. They are crazy here and they take care of everything. As long as you are not asking for unrealistic things then they can make it all happen for you.

                  When I get back I will for sure post my experience here at Now Sapphire. For now, if you have any questions just feel free to let me know
