      I spoke to Claudia and it seems the Pres Suite in the Tower is available for the low low price of $5000/night! I guess the President will be the only one staying in that suite!!! LOL!

          Hi ladies !
          Did any one or is anyone having music playing during their reception meal? not for dancing in between courses just as back ground music. If so did you / are you having to hire the Dreams equipment for this too ? Did anyone have no music playing during dinner ? If so how did this work out ? I'd just like to hear some thoughts on this....

            We had music before the ceremony and during the ceremony from our CD (the sounds guy took care of this).
            Cocktail hour was the included mariachi trio for 45 minutes.
            We walked into our first dance and father /daughter & mother/son dance.
            Then we had dinner music from our ipod handled by the sound guy and then the dancing music which also included the garter removal, toss and bouquet toss.

              Sorry to be a pain asking all these questions.... how many hours in total did you hire the music equipment for? Was it for the total time of the meal and the party after? Over here in the UK our tradition is to all sit down and have speaches first then have the meal then first dance and party !! I'd never heard of the garter toss before this website but I love the idea and think I might take on this american tradition as part of a little tribute to DW (without sounding too corny lol)

                I am happy to answer questions Jodey. Let's seeeee...
                We had it for the ceremony ($180 +tax in my pricing for last year)
                It had to be moved for the reception, I think we paid for 3 hours, so times that by 3.
                I honestly cannot remember if we did the speeches after the first dances or while people were eating...

                I have some pictures of the garter hunt and toss I willhave to upload.
                The toss was funny because I chose to play the theme from the Muppet Show and J's step-brother caught the garter on the very last note of the song where there is an off-key horn.

                  Excellent !! Sounds like you had loads of fun !! Thanks for that I was just trying to work out wether we need to hire the sound system for during the dinner as well as after, maybe we will get away with a docing station for this, thanx Paula !

                    we used our ipod during dinner, in between courses while we were waiting we did our dance and the father/daughter dance. Speeches we also did in between courses, while we were waiting. Cake cutting after dinner. we skipped the garter.

                      Thanks Jilly, I think we will go with the IPOD during dinner, besides it is only for back ground music so we don't want anything too loud.
