Anyone using resort dj or bringing own?

Recommended Posts

Hey,

 

With all the rage I know some are just using speakers and ipods for their reception. I need a "dj hype man" on the mike!! smile120.gif

 

The Riu from what I understand charges $150.00 per hour for a dj but I think you can hire o/s if u want.

 

Any viewshuh.gif? monkey.gif

 

Marrying my sweetie, my man, my son's father on 8/16/08 at the pond.

 

Thanks,

 

Netty

there was just a thread about this, but which riu are you getting married at? the riu's in cabo have a new policy of no outside vendors, unless you pay some kind of big fee. so you should really check with your wedding coordinator at the riu if you're in another location.

I think we will go w/ the dj through RIU as well. I heard he was pretty good and that way I don't have to worry about it (or have to find a family/friend to man the ipod).

We have the seagrape for 2h the evening of the wedding. I'm bringing my own Ipod and speakers. Chandlyn told me it was 50$ an hour for the speaker so I prefer to buy speakers and keep them after the wedding.

Hi OchoRioBride,

What time is your wedding? Are you doing dinner at any of the restaurants? I'm considering renting the disco or Seagrapes. I think the disco is $250 US for 2hours and includes the DJ and Bar (9-11) not sure how private though.

My wedding is @ 4 pm and I'm booked right now for Mammee's at 6:30. I want to try and keep everything flowing w/o any breaks and w/o moving locations. ie.. dinner and party part of the reception at different locations.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
