    So I think most of you know that Beaches has annoyed me ever since I booked my wedding. I always try to look past it cuz we can't change the location site, but I am kinda crabby today and they just pissed me off.

    We are only having 26 people (22 adults) in Jamaica for our reception. I don't want to spend almost $1k for a DJ for such a small group, so I emailed them to confirm they would provide a power cord if I brought an ipod and speakers or docking station. She wrote me back that she would suggest I bring battery powered everything since there are no plugs at the reception sites.

    Am I out of line for thinking they should just supply me with an extension cord It doesn't seem too much to ask in my head, but like I said, I am a little crabby today...

      that seems strange that they can't supply you with an extension cord. are you having the reception on the beach, where there is no access to power?

      I brought batteries for our docking station because I wasn't sure if they would have a cord, but they did so we didn't need the batteries. Our docking station took a LOT of batteries! I think it was 8 or 12 D batteries.

        That sucks Carly! Our reception site had electricity, so it wasn't a big deal. They had a stereo setup, so we just plugged the ipod in through that. What do they do if they get a DJ? They must have some way of hooking up his equipment... ?

          I never thought of that, Jenn!!

          And thanks for the insight as well, Jill. I am going to email her back and just ask her to supply us with a power extension cord. I bet she is just trying to make me think that i need to hire a DJ.

          carly, also if they are being asses about the power cord, bring your own extension cord to jamaica just in case!

            This may be a stupid question, but they do have 3 prong outlets correct

            And whoever ahs that iPod BOSE docking station, are you pleased with it and does it take batteries? We went to Bose (since that is the system I have in my SUV and I love them) and listened to it and it sounded very good, but I am just worried that it sounded good in an enclosed space...how will it sound outside? We haven't bought it yet, but I wanted to see if anyone knew anything about it?

              Everything I have read and heard about the new BOSE system is great!!! Very good company and excellent equipment, I really don't think you'd go wrong spending the money on those!

                you arent gonna find any battery powered speakers that will over power the sound of the beach and people and wind and this and that... id say bring your own extension cords if they arent willing to provide taht for you :)
