    we're having a dj, but regret it already. we're paying $800 for 4 hrs of djing, plus lights (think club lights) for 30 people - and the dj doesn't speak english, so no mcing. (NOTE: this was fi's department)
    we both think that with such few people, we should have gone w/ the ipod - and definitely no lights!

      We are having around 20 guests so we'll be using the IPOD and it's nice to do our own playlists. We have IPODs and the speaker thing that we use all the time at the house but what is the IPOD setup we use at the resort? How does that work? I've never seen it so I don't get it.

        We booked the DJ fpor 200.00 an hour but the WC just told me the IPOD setup is 150.00 an hour. So, I don't know what to do? Some other Paradisus brides were told 150.00 total. I called and emailed her and shes saying 150.00 an hour. We have 25 poeple

          This is such a hard decision to make! We are having the same problem as we speak. I am not the most music literate person. I just like what I like. Anyhow - we are going to meet with a local DJ and see what he can download onto an Ipod for us and just use the hotel equipment to hook it up to. That way we have current music, plus he has all of the Mexican music that is current here.

          Someone made a comment earlier about how the music is outdated at the resorts. Come to think of it, that is probably true. We were in PV and some guy next to us was BOOMIN' a hip-hop song that was 3-4 years old. He was rockin' it like it was the hottest thing!

          At our resort it's $130 an hour for a DJ or $40 an hour for the sound system you can hook an Ipod up to. We are only having 40-60 guests, so we decided to just go with the Ipod. I have a charasmatic uncle who can probably emcee.

            I say Ipod cause then you can create your own playlists and you have complete control. Plus it's way cheaper!
