I still have to write my review but I need to put out 2 pieces of planning advice that I consider urgent to any brides that are having their weddings soon!
#1 Don't spend your money on the DJ. Rent their equipment, bring a laptop or ipod, and have a friend work the music and act as MC. We had a DJ and I brought my ipod with all of the music on it for the reception so that I could have the exact music that I wanted. I assumed the DJ would copy the music from my ipod onto his laptop and use it in the DJ program on the computer to fade the songs in and out, etc. I wrote out a schedule for the DJ, also assuming he would be like an MC and do the announcing for garter toss, etc while putting on the corresponding song (like DJs do here). They didn't say a single word (not exaggerating) and my MOH or I had to keep walking up to them to tell them what to do and we had to do the announcing ourselves. It made the transitions between songs choppy (1 song ended, pause, then a new song would start) and felt like a waste of money ($420 USD for 2 hours). That was my biggest regret...
#2 Use Diego from Arrecife Photography at the resort. Our friend is a hobby photographer and offered to do our photos for free. Since Diego was included, we had him do the photos for the ceremony only and our friend do the rest. When we had our meeting to see Diego's photos a few days later, we ended up buying them all....spectacular!! Our friend's photos are still quite good but it is clear that they are not the same quality and I did not have the same direction and ideas for poses etc. that I would have received from Diego. I wish Diego had done all of our photos, but we did save a lot of money having him only do the ceremony (53 photos on a CD for $700 USD approx...I can only imagine how much photos of everything would have cost!)
I hope these tips help!
