Also, did anyone who did this bring their own ipod and just rent speakers? I don't think we need a DJ necessarily and not to be cheap, but I don't really want to pay a DJ to just stand there if we bring all our own music......
We had planned to have a cocktail reception out by the jacuzzis but we ended up inside at the Music Bar near the Coba lobby. Since there were only 18 of us I did the ipod. The set up speakers and lights and the cake so that we could do the cutting then. They also put a bunch of balloons in out colours to decorate (that was my nieces favourite part).
IMO, a DJ isn't worth it if you have a smaller group. Lets face it, it's only the women that dance and we tend to wiggle our hips to anything, DJ or not.
Oh and the other great thing about being inside was the lack of mosquitos. They're sneaky in Mexico. So tiny but they surely leave their mark.
