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.

        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!!?? Arghhhhhhhhh

            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 graciously 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.

            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 don’t reccomend what we don’t know, that’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:

            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.
