      I did get some responses to the questiosn I sent Claudia (Via my TA) & after my TA had to keep e-mailing her..she finally responded.
      I posted this on the Dj Doremixx v. Mannia thread, but I wanted to post it here also.
      I said this to her:
      I booked DJ Doremixx as my DJ..He;s not going to be arriving until around 6pm to set up...Will I still need a day pass for him.
      She said:
      He is not approved, we use DJ Mannia

      So there goes that!! :-( It stinks because the price difference is so big. Even the sound system for 3 hours is more expensive then he is. So I wanted to let you know that if you want him you may have to fight for him a little. I think My TA may just to get her to come around, although, I'm not sure.

      I also said that I wanted to extend the reception one hour. We will not need any servers or even a bar set up, just the services of my DJ
      and she said:
      With or with out servers it's $10 + all that tax crap that charge. WTF!
      So needless to say, we will just take the party to the lobby..LOL

      I think once you get down there, you'll be face to face and can fight for more things. I am tempted to book the DJ and fioght for him when I get there. If I lose then I'll lose like $150 bucks, but who says I'll lose?? LOL

      I still have so much to do and I am losing my ambition. I was so gung ho in the begining, and now I am just plain lazy :-)
      I'm so angry about all of this! Like what the hell Claudia irritates me!!!! I also want to extend an hour without servers or anything, what's the big deal- the DJ will be paid for 4 hours, they can take all of the food and tables away for all I care all we need is the beach. I'm gna do a site visit again like 2 months before my wedding and set that b!tch straight. I already told her we just need A dj, even thought its so not fair the Doremixx isn't approved. Let me know what she says and if she lightens up on any of these issues.

              I think it's really crappy of them to not let us have who we want to DJ!! They are making so much money from us, expecially with out families and friends booking rooms and stuff, I mean come on!
              I think they will eventually give in with a little fight :-) I am going to see if My TA will maybe tell her that we already booked and paid for him and maybe that will make a difference...We'll see!!

              He is really nice and he responds so quickly to e-mails!! I just wish I knew someone who actually used him :-(
              As I have said before though, there was obviously someone who used Mannia first and loved him so I will be the guniea pig with Doremixx if need be. LOL

                Okay ladies so I met Iva from luckie photography a really nice guy!! He was in NY on buisness and we met up to discuss pictures!! I am so happy I chose him he seems like a really nice guy!! I guess I will be the guniea pig on this new photographer on the scene..lol

                I also think thats a crappy reason why they are not allowing you bring in your own DJ!! I say you just do it what can they do, this is your guest that happens to DJ and come with equipment...lol

                      Hey ladies, Quick question to save me from searching this thread, yet again..LOL
                      Did anyone trade stuff that they weren't using for the sound system, not nly for the Ceremony but also the 3 hour reception?
                      Since they won't let me use the Dj and now my guest list is down to 23 people, I figure I don't need a DJ and maybe I can trade the Photographer & Flowers for te sound system for the the night basically. or maybe it will cover the ceremony and at least 2 hours of the reception and we would pay 1 hour. I dunno..But they better give a little since I can't use who I want as m DJ!! lol
                      I am just wondering if anyone else did this?
