Is this true?? I am all confused... Plus... another question... I think someone posted it before... are you supposed to make a CD with you walk down the aisle song, all that stuff? Sorry, my brain is fried lol
I was also told the DJ would be $150/hr. you can bring your own CD for the ceremony etc or they can play romantic mexican music on CD if you dont have it. i think we are bringing our own i just hope their CD player plays it...scary!

From what I've understood, DJ Bob is the DJ the resort provides, at 150 per hour. We are bringing our own ceremony songs on cd, plus our own cd with our first dance, mother/son and father/daughter, just in case. So far, he has been great to work with and gets back to us quickly. Will let you know how he works out in my review!!!

 

Good point on it being windy. This is what my parents keep saying to me (they don't want us spending extra money on the dinner when the one in the restaurant is free - I agree that they do have a point, but we are paying for it ourselves, therefore I believe we decide!). I wonder if it is windy now... That would make our decision easy!

Morning Ladies!!

Alright, let's see what questions I can try and answer today...

I had my poolside reception at Akumal. It was expensive, but i wouldn't have changed it for the world. It really made my day super special and it was awesome.

The DJ was provided to us... he certainly was not DJ Bob... however maybe that's a Tulum thing. It was $150 an hour PAID IN CASH THE DAY BEFORE!! We brought mixed CD's with the songs he needed to play, and then other random music that we would like played. He mixed his songs with our songs and he was absolutely perfect.

 

For the ceremony we brought a burned CD from iTunes. Just make sure the CD plays in an older CD player before you go down there. When i burnt my first CD from iTunes it was the MP4s and it didn't play in some CD players. That would have sucked! Then on the CD label what songs go with what. Make sure you label the outside of the case too, since once the CD is inside the player it won't do much good to have it written on the CD! :)

For our ceremony we had a song for seating of the guests. A song for Shawn to walk the mom's to their seat and the bridesmaids/groomsmen to walk into (we had four pairs... and our song was about 4 minutes long and it had to be repeated for 30 seconds). Then I had a song for myself and my dad. Then we had a song for signing of the documents. A song for the sand ceremony. And a recessional song.

 

hope that helps!

When my FI talked to DJ Bob he is not the resort dj but does do a lot of functions there so if you want him I could contact him. Since he does a lot of work for the resort there is no charge to bring him in for your wedding.

I finally got a reply back from Paloma and I finally have my date reserved!

 

Thanks so much for all your advice. I would still be wedding date-less if it weren't for all of you.

    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
