        Yay Midnight! You're married!! Congrats! It sounds like it's hot hot hot there! We just had a freak snowstorm on Saturday so I'm looking forward to some great vacation weather!

        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...

          Ouch! Looks like the price went up... Jazmin quoted me $190/hour. I decided to go another route. However my wedding has not happened yet so I might not be much help!

          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!

              Question about flowers:

              I have a few people that I'm getting flowers for that aren't in the wedding party (Mothers, readers, personal attendant, etc...) When I emailed Jazmin I called out corsages... but she keeps suggesting wrist corsages... has anyone had either and which is preferred by people in general. She kept saying the corsages were heavy to pin onto a sundress... I asked to see pictures but of course she has yet to respond (in fact I haven't heard from her in over a month). Can anyone give advice? Thanks!

                $210 really....I just looked over the info that Jazmin had sent me and she quoted me 190/hr...for the sound system and music on our ipod. I actually have it in a recent email from her as well, maybe double check with her again??

                  Hey swankster, please let me know if you hear anything from her...I have asked for the same info and like you haven't heard a word....but she may have a good thought there though...perhaps they might be too heavy for a sundress?

                    we brought our own boutinerries, wrist corsages and bouquets. you might want to look into that, it's a bit cheaper and if you have an AHR they can be re-used. we got all of our stuff made for under $100, and we were quoted almost $300 if we got it at the resort.
