    Thanks for the disco pictures! Were you happy with renting out the disco or was it a waste? With the new prices I got it looks like they increased the rate to $250 per hour. Do you think it's worth it? Also, do you know if it's possible to have a dance recpetion outside by the pool w/drinks only (no dinner)? And if so, does anyone know how much it is?

        We were very happy with the disco, everyone had a great time and it was totally worth it. I think $250/hr is still very much worth it (it's only $200 more).

        It is possible to have the poolside dance. When I was quoted it was $150/hr for the DJ, $5/per person for the first hour and $3/per person for any additional hours. So for two hours it would be $300 for the DJ and $8/per person. For three hours it would be $450 for the DJ and $11/per person.

            Has anyone had their wedding in January? Do you think it would be too cool at night to have a poolside reception? Or would the disco be a better option? Thanks!

              Here is the most updated information for the civil wedding package. It looks like some of the prices have changed. Does anyone have updated pricing for poolside reception? I can't get anyone to respond to my e-mails. Also, has anyone used the mexican trio or other music options? Did you have the trio play after your ceremony or during? Do you think it's cheesy to get the trio, is it better to just go with CDs? Thanks!

                We had our wedding January 9 and it was still quite warm at night (some might like a light jacket - but we were fine walking around at night without one).

                ETA: THe prices for the poolside reception are on Page 43 of this thread.

                    If you decide to have a coctail hour driectly after the ceremony (while we are busy with pictures)...where do they have it....do you guys think its worth the extra money or should I scrap that idea and just let the guests do what the want until dinner at 530?

                      Hi JennyFTB, in New Jersey at many of the weddings here, they have an hour to two hour period after the ceremony and before the cocktail hour/reception, where people usually relax and go to a bar to grab a drink and do things like that. I think for a destination wedding especially at the Gran Bahia ( since it is all inclusive and they can do that) it would not be rude or wrong to do. I think a lot of times people appreciate that "down time" before the cocktail hour/reception (at least I know we all do here at home.) Do whatever feels right and fits your budget!

                      ***Ladies, I just wanted to let everyone know I just received an email from Jazmin with some pictures of outdoor dinners/receptions, along with the prices which I know are already posted on here, but the pictures might help if anyone wants to see! Thanks again everyone for all of the information!!***
