     You could certainly use the sound system it would be cheaper and they do a good job you could create a playlist on the ipod. At first we considered this and then at the end we went with the dj and cut expenses elsewhere. We brought our own centerpieces and got a credit for not using the Mexican trio that was included in the package. I also did not take the centerpieces that were part of my package and used them both for gazebo decor etc. Try and see what u can do without in the package and call Claudia to see what she could give u for it.

    The DJ is worth every penney. He did a great job at our wedding.

      Hi all!
       

      I was hoping to get some feedback/review/ pictures from Brides that used the new photgraphers provided by the Hotel!

         I heard that the one with the hotel does nice work but is not sociable. We went with Juan Navarro and his rates were amazing and his work was unreal.

                  The gentleman Marlun at the hotel took amazing photos but he was not sociable at all! He had no "people skills"  and didn't take photos of my family, bridal party or anything.  I would probably suggest going elsewhere if photos are a pretty big deal to you.  Luckily I had hired a videographer there so I wasn't too upset because he got all of the shots that the photographer did not.

                    Can you carry candy into mexico? And what is the limit between the OOT Bag cost and decorations you can take in?

                    Thanks!

                      I know you can definitely take in packaged food/candy as I had some snack items in my OOT bags plus a lot of granola bars.  They probably have the same rules as the US - no fresh fruits and vegetables.  The limit for all non-personal items (like decorations or OOT bag items) is $300 per person.
