    I got married at the Moon Palace on Saturday April 30, 2011.  I decided to use the services of DJ Mannia because they came highly recommended on bestdestinationweddings.com.  I never once felt worried or regret with selecting their DJ services.  They were extremely professional, responded quickly to my emails and answered all my questions.  They assured me that they would keep all my guest dancing and I had nothing to worry about.  They were right!!!

    Carols DJ's my wedding.  He contacted me several weeks before my wedding providing me a break down of songs he will such as daughter - father dance, first dance, etc.  They asked for a small list of songs I would like played in order for them to have an idea of what type of music we like.  

    I met Carols the day of my wedding, he was dressed professional, had an extremly professional attitutude and knew exactly what I wanted as the bridal party entrance and bride and groom entrance.  The music selection he played from cocktail hour to dinner and to dancing was exactly what I wanted.  Carlos was able to add extra songs which flowed nicely with the same kind of music we had requested.  My guest could not stop raving about the awesome DJ.  People danced all night and  some even started to dance on the bar.  We even paid to have Carols play an extra hour.  He had no problem with doing this and was willing to stay as long as we needed him.  It was an amazing night and I have the DJ to thank for that.  I would higly recommend DJ Mannia and I would defintely use this company again.  I felt so happy about selecting this DJ company.  Anyone would be crazy if they did not use DJ Mannia to DJ their event.  The DJ is one of the best choices I made with my destination wedding.

    A+++ for this company.  Thank you to bestdestinationwedding for pointing me in the right direction!  DJ Mannia you have a fan for life here in California!  Thank you so much for being a part of our special day.  You are awesome!!!

      We just used DJ Mannia for our wedding and they were great! We only decided to get an emcee a few days before the wedding and boy are we glad we did! Carlos was the emcee and he was incredible. He really was able to roll with the punches as our cocktail hour ran late and the food came out at a different pace than we expected. He was really flexible and very good at communicating with the photog and videographer about what was coming next so they could be available and aware of what to shoot.

       

      They also reacted quickly and well to our feedback - my now-husbsand told them to play more songs faster (instead of playing out the entire song) and they adjusted immediately. They definitely listened to our playlist and people were on the dance floor the entire night. Additionally we made a funny first dance and they followed our instructions perfectly.

       

      Overall we had an incredible experience with them!

      Highly recommend!!!

        Hi brides,

         

        I just had a wedding in Punta Cana on May 8, 2014 at the Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe.  It was an amazing wedding, but the only downside was the DJ company I used.  I used Dj Mannia because of the great things I've heard about them thru forums.

         

        HOWEVER, I have to let other brides know about my negative experience because for $1,300 US I was very disappointed at the company and wished I had gone with a different DJ/MC service.

         

        FIrst of all, the people who I had e-mail correspondence with did not tell me that the DJ is also the MC.  I still went ahead with it because of all the positive reviews on this forum.

         

        The people I had e-mail correspondence with named Amy and Carlos Martinez did not give my DJ/MC the music file for our FIRST DANCE (we did a medley of songs), so I sent my mp3 file ahead of time, so that they can download our music.  They also did not send German my wedding day timeline that I had e-mailed days ahead.

         

        I was VERY DISAPPOINTED at this company, and would not recommend this company because they made the DJ/MC so unprepared for my wedding and it basically delayed everything by AT LEAST 15 minutes because the DJ/MC came up to us at the beginning of the wedding and asked for our first dance and I said "you didn't download it?" he said whoever I spoke with did not give it to him.  Luckily, I had the song downloaded on my iPhone, so he attached it on the dock.  

         

        Then, he was going over the dj questionnaire about introductions, and I was thinking the whole time, how can our MC seem like he doesn't know the flow of our wedding?  I asked him about the timeline and he said he did not receive that either.  I have proof of all my e-mails and I have proof of sent e-mails on my yahoo account.

         

        The DJ/MC himself, German, was very nice and pleasant, but the fact that the company made him look unprofessional and unprepared was very disappointing.  I had to come up to him each time to explain what's next on the timeline.  I am in no means a bridezilla because I accommodate everything and yes, I still had fun at my wedding and so did our guests because luckily we are all laid-back people.

         

        But if you want an organized wedding reception or if you are a perfectionist or simply want a good flow of things without you being stressed, do not get DJ Mannia services.  I may be a rare case, but I did not know nor expect that DJ Mannia will mess up my wedding reception until they did it to me.  So for $1,300 I could've gotten a better DJ and MC service.  Not a good surprise.

         

        Also, that youtube video or any youtube videos is definitely not like the DJ they sent.  They play off your playlist as if you are playing music off your computer or iPhone.  Poor transitioning and mixing.  The youtube videos are misleading.  You think you'd get a quality dj like the ones you hear at clubs or radio, but it isn't.

         

        I DO NOT RECOMMEND DJ MANNIA unfortunately this was my experience with them.  Goodluck brides!
