We are taking our photos before the wedding but I am concerned about it being so dark during the ceremony that the pictures of the wedding will not show the amazing blue water in the background. Any help would be greatly appreciated. This is my first panic moment so far!
Tell her to sod off - YOU wanted 4 for a reason and you aren't changing it. Remember she works for you not the other way round

Yes! Except once again Dreams has taken a reasonably priced DJ and jacked up his prices!! LOL
Doremixx is only $450 for 2-4 hours..Total! They have made him unaffordable for me..:-( However..It's still awesome that he is approved now for all of the other brides who wished to use him :-)
But I am not worried because since my guest list is lowered, I am happy with the sound system. My friends already promised to help me do announcements and stuff, so we are good to go! :-)

Thanks again Jill for working all of that out!!

Just thought I'd let everyone know in case they were considering hiring him.

Jill
That is great news! Any little bit helps when you are dishing out all this money.

You must be kidding me. $280? Ughhh Claudia gets me so mad! The reason why I loved Doremixx so much was cuz he was super nice, and his price was almost too good to be true - $450 for 4 hrs--how much of a profit is Dreams making off of him!!?? Arghhhhhhhhhfryingpan.giffryingpan.giffryingpan.gif

Hi Girls...

 

Just wanting to let you know that I emailed Claudia regarding the 30% discount for Mannia since I couldnt book Doremixx on time.

 

She graciouslygirl_werewolf.gif granted me the discount, so for 3 hours I will be paying $647.00 plus the cost of the illuminated dance floor of $880.00. Im not sure if this is the small dance floor or the bigger one I must ask, but it seems a bit pricey.S&M.gif

 

Anyhow, I had inquired previously about Doremixx and she had told me no and that he was not an authorized vendor. Now he is, his price is the same as Mannia at $280..

 

Here is her email...

Yes now we can work with Doremixx, heis now an authorized vendor for Dreams Cancun, we had a formal meeting a few days ago

 

The price for DJ is $ 280 usd + 10% tax per hour

The price for the dance floor (wood) is $ 450 usd + 15% set up + 10% tax

 

Doremixx has a beautiful lightened dance floor, maybe you like it, if you do I can send you price

 

NOW THE EMAIL ABOUT MANNIA

 

Yes when you asked he was not an authorized vendor, and beacuse all those brides asking a lot for this other company we invite him to have an appointment in our corporate office to make sure that he offers a great quality in service, all vendors for Dreams has to be carefully selected in order to avoid any inconvenience may cause to our clients, we donâ€t reccomend what we donâ€t know, thatâ€s why we just offered the Mannia Services.

 

If you decide to work with Mannia we will honor the 30% discount he offered to all BDW.

 

It will cost you for 3 hours

 

$ 924 usd

 

Less 30%

 

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA:sh ots:shots.gifshots.gifshots.gifshots.gifS&M.gif

 

Total will be $ 647 usd for 3 hours

OMG That is so awesome!!! I am working with Cecilia now because Gaby was let go, so I must ask her about that discount. Thanks so much for letting everyone know. Just to make sure I understand correctly, you are having 3 hours and the illuminated dance floor...all for $880? Or is $880 just for the cost of the dance floor?

All this Dj talk is making me a little nervous. There are only going to be about 25 in my group. For those past brides, is it worth it to hire a DJ for so few people. Jill, didn't you even forgo the sound system and go with an ipod docking station? How did that work out and how big was your group? Any advice will help.

I'm pretty much waiting til I get there to make all my decisions, but it sounds like I should maybe figure out the music thing.

We only have 10 people, so we were thinking the same thing (ipod docking station) I'm hoping that won't be a pain in the ass. i guess we'll find out soon enough.

    • 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.
