I posted this on the Dj Doremixx v. Mannia thread, but I wanted to post it here also.
I said this to her:
I booked DJ Doremixx as my DJ..He;s not going to be arriving until around 6pm to set up...Will I still need a day pass for him.
She said:
He is not approved, we use DJ Mannia

So there goes that!! :-( It stinks because the price difference is so big. Even the sound system for 3 hours is more expensive then he is. So I wanted to let you know that if you want him you may have to fight for him a little. I think My TA may just to get her to come around, although, I'm not sure.

I also said that I wanted to extend the reception one hour. We will not need any servers or even a bar set up, just the services of my DJ
and she said:
With or with out servers it's $10 + all that tax crap that charge. WTF!
So needless to say, we will just take the party to the lobby..LOL

I think once you get down there, you'll be face to face and can fight for more things. I am tempted to book the DJ and fioght for him when I get there. If I lose then I'll lose like $150 bucks, but who says I'll lose?? LOL

I still have so much to do and I am losing my ambition. I was so gung ho in the begining, and now I am just plain lazy :-)
I'm so angry about all of this! Like what the hell Claudia irritates me!!!! I also want to extend an hour without servers or anything, what's the big deal- the DJ will be paid for 4 hours, they can take all of the food and tables away for all I care all we need is the beach. I'm gna do a site visit again like 2 months before my wedding and set that b!tch straight. I already told her we just need A dj, even thought its so not fair the Doremixx isn't approved. Let me know what she says and if she lightens up on any of these issues.

I think it's really crappy of them to not let us have who we want to DJ!! They are making so much money from us, expecially with out families and friends booking rooms and stuff, I mean come on!
I think they will eventually give in with a little fight :-) I am going to see if My TA will maybe tell her that we already booked and paid for him and maybe that will make a difference...We'll see!!

He is really nice and he responds so quickly to e-mails!! I just wish I knew someone who actually used him :-(
As I have said before though, there was obviously someone who used Mannia first and loved him so I will be the guniea pig with Doremixx if need be. LOL

Okay ladies so I met Iva from luckie photography a really nice guy!! He was in NY on buisness and we met up to discuss pictures!! I am so happy I chose him he seems like a really nice guy!! I guess I will be the guniea pig on this new photographer on the scene..lol

 

I also think thats a crappy reason why they are not allowing you bring in your own DJ!! I say you just do it what can they do, this is your guest that happens to DJ and come with equipment...lol

Hey ladies, Quick question to save me from searching this thread, yet again..LOL

Did anyone trade stuff that they weren't using for the sound system, not nly for the Ceremony but also the 3 hour reception?

Since they won't let me use the Dj and now my guest list is down to 23 people, I figure I don't need a DJ and maybe I can trade the Photographer & Flowers for te sound system for the the night basically. or maybe it will cover the ceremony and at least 2 hours of the reception and we would pay 1 hour. I dunno..But they better give a little since I can't use who I want as m DJ!! lol

I am just wondering if anyone else did this?

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win.
