I feel like we are already paying enough for dinner and alcohol plus the welcome dinner!! 30% would help out A LOT!! we'll have to keep each other posted
    I emailed DJ Mannia and he told me we had to book through Dreams as well. We should get the discount---thats bunk

    Jeez...if we could get 30% off and he was costing around $900 thats almost $300 off the price!! Does anyone know where to get a price list for him. I thought I heard someone on here say around 900 but I don't know what that included...

    Anyways like carolina says...if anyone can manage anything keep us in the loop :)

      the price list i got from Cecilia for 2010 is $280 USD per hour plus 10% tax. the dance floor is extra.

        We should definitely be able to get the discount since booking the dj through Dreams is our only option!!

          exactly! it kind of feels like since the resort and the dj have an agreement, there's no reason to offer us any incentive to use them b/c unless you don't want a dj at all, your hands are tied

            Unfortunately ladies, Mannia has a deal with Dreams, so if you are a Dreams bride, the discount doesn't apply to you.
            I def don't blame you for trying and if you want to try to fight for it, more power to ya! LOL But Dreams put Mannia on Lock down about a year ago. There was also another DJ downthere, DJ Doremixx who was even cheaper than Mannia...Even his light up dance floor was cheaper. Around the time I was getting married (June 09) I asked my TA to e-mail Claudia and tell her I was using Doremixx and they told me that they were working out a contract with him & that I would have to wait.
            Well sure enough..They locked him down too at the same price as they want for Mannia:-(
            Needless to say, I never got my DJ for my wedding..It was just too expensive and I had decided I wanted one too last minute.
            We had a good time with just the iPod and my playlists and I really think it depends on your crowd,But it would have been better with a DJ.
            I think if you can afford the DJ..Go for it. It'll be worth it in the end :) I saw so many weddings the week that I was there, On the beach, with the lighted Dance floor and the DJ and it was Awesome!!!

                yes, it's in the main pool. it's shaded and out of the sun, so it's a good place to spend a lot of time if you're trying to avoid tan-lines before the wedding, lol!

                  Hey ladies! Here are some new beach photos! I'm really excited about the new beach but I'm not sure about how I feel about the view from the gazebo. Do you think they will just face the other way so the rocks aren't in the picture? Anybody actually been there to see it recently?

                    andim: the beach is gorgeous!! I've been there and there are rocks all around the gazebo, but it looks amazing when the waves splash up on them. the bride and groom are usually in the middle and the guests would be facing the ocean not the beach. you could ask the photog to get as many pics in that direction as possible, with out interrupting the guests' view. either way the pics don't do it justice, when you get down there you'll see how amazing the colors of the water are!!

                    phillybride: thanks for the info. we definately want a dj, so he was already in the budget. we wanted the dance floor, but that's one of the things we're gonna cut, i cant justify the price!! it just sucks to know there's a discount out there!!

                      No Problem. I know what you mean about knowing your paying much more for a DJ than you would somewhere else! UGH...I was so mad because I didn't budget for a DJ & when I saw how cheap DJ Doremixx was going to be it really made me happy. And then, they Locked him down! LOL fml
                      I think you're going to enjoy the DJ with or without the Dance floor
