Question for those that recently had or are planning to have a DJ - what price were you quoted? Karla just quoted me $210/hour which is quite a bit more than I've been reading on here! Now it's got me questioning if it's worth it...
honestly...just go to one of the bars with live music! they take requests and seem very accommodating to wedding parties. save some money & still have fun.

i have to say one of the best parts of the night was just ending up at the daiquiri bar....unplanned and having the band play for us.

Interesting... Jazmin told me they did not offer a sound system for an iPod!

I am using DJ Bijan (MayanVibes - Wedding DJ in the Mayan Riviera - Home). He quoted me $250 for the first 2 hours. Our total is going to be $300 for 2.5 hours (8-10:30). He was recommended by DJ Bob which people have given good reviews... So far communication with him has been quick and clear... and apparently he is from Canada!

I'm positive that's what she told me...I have her emails at home...I'll check and let you know for sure.

The DJ you were planning on using....how does that all work?? Does he bring all his own equipment and stuff for that price?? And you go over what music that you want?? Iâ€m thinking that might be the better way to go nowhuh.gif

And how do you arrange that all with Jazmin/Karla??

I got wrist corsages for my mom's. It really is hard to pin a normal one to a sun dress. So they did wrist ones. I had roses and orchirds in mine, so they were kind of expensive actually. $30 or $40 a piece. MUCH cheaper if you just do roses.

I got the 'ok' from Jazmin before booking Bijan.. but before that he assured me he'd worked with Jazmin before and that it wouldn't be a problem.

I contacted Bijan via email. He wrote back asking a few questions. I responded and then he was able to give me a quote. After we agreed to the cost/services he sent me a paypal invoice for $100 deposit. The rest is due the day of the service. He recently sent me a questionnaire asking for special requests (microphone, mc service, music requests - wants me to give him a list of 20 songs so he can get a feel for the type of music i want, etc). He also said he uses a laptop, nice sound system, and some lights. he said he has a more elaborate light set but it's overkill for the poolside reception and requires additional fees.

Trish you've got to be kidding me!! I wonder if the wrist corsage costs more than a regular one? The price list i have says $16, $24, $50... I was hoping mine would be the least expensive (called 'tropical'). I'm just going with simple gerbera daisy's and lily's. I really can't spend that much on corsages!! Yikes!

I'm sure those would be cheaper. It was all because of the stupid orchids. I wanted the flowers to match their dresses... but not clash with my flowers. So i went with beautiful white orchids. So beautiful... but NOT cheap!!!

With tropical flowers you should be fine.

Swankster...you are the best!!!! I think I'm going to request a quote and see what happens from there but I am REALLY leaning towards using him...everything sounds great and even if I have to pay 300 for 2 hours it's still cheaper and I'm getting more them having the resort set me up some speakers and having my ipod playing!! Off to email Jazmin now!! I'll keep you posted! Thanks!!!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
