So if you did the beach party, had the DJ and provided the music on CDs of your own, what did the DJ actually do? I mean if we're paying him I want him to actually do something. lol
Also, for paying for the wedding, beach party, DJ, photographer (HDC) etc. did you pay in cash, credit card or travelers checks? I know my parents would prefer not to carry that much cash with them, so I'm hoping they can use a credit card.
Hi!! hows the wedding planning coming along?!
I brought my own cd's/music because I was very sure in what I wanted to hear on my wedding night. I also new my guest and what they liked, so I decided to make a list of everyone's fav music (so all the guest felt included) it turned out amazing, I am so happy I did it. Everyone kept telling me how they loved the music. If your not as picky then you really don't need to make any list. I personally hired the DJ for an MC. But it didn't work out that way since he couldn't speak any english (LOL) in the end we got my SIL do to it (she did amazing!!) so consider having someone in your group doing the introduction. But he was still good to have to mix up the music. He helped my SIL plot some games out with music. If we didn't have a DJ we would have had to get someone pretty much sitting next to the player mixing songs.
Basically I was worried if I bought a sound player it wouldn't have been loud enough since you can't bring a big thing on the plan. You can just rent the equipment with no DJ but that's $200, so for the extra $50 you can have someone playing if for you. But that'd be all up to you and the future Hubby.
We paid everything by credit card, like your parents we didn't feel comfortable carrying such a large sum of money either, the photographer charged us $15 extra (for the fee of the credit card machine) and the wedding was $20 extra. We were ok with this rather be safe then sorry!!! You can also pay by travellers cheque!
