We used their sound system and iTunes. Worked out great! One of our guests queued the special songs (first dance, father/daughter, cake cutting) and changed the music from dinner to dancing. Other than that, the music just played! Our guests liked being able to go up to our laptop, check out our playlist, and then choose a song if they wanted to.

However, we didn't have much of a dancing crowd, and we knew it would be that way. It was mostly DH and I with our siblings/spouses up dancing. If we'd had a crowd that was really into dancing, we would have considered splurging on the DJ.

AmyB, do you have a template for those programs? That was the idea I was going for also, but I am having trouble creating it!

 

This past weekend was uber-successful! I found outfits for all of the guys, woohoo! Now I have faith that they have something to wear--I didn't trust them to go get something on their own, lol.

Besides I wanted announcing done, comes with a microphone and the DJ said he could play whatever we wanted, even if he didn't have it he said to just hand him the iPod the song is on and no problem :)
I agree, I did not want to give the music task to someone. I am concerned about the DJ not speaking English, so I am going to get my brother to be the MC - just announce the speeches, cake, first dances, and our entrance!

Not really. I am only doing 1 piece of paper cut into 2 and another cut into 4 - so a long rectangle and a square on top. I just don't have that much material to put into a program since I already did a Whos Who booklet, Welcome letter, and schedule!

I was told my DJ does speak English and will do all the MCing, I have one of my groomsmen to do it as the backup :)

Hi Chong! We have the same wedding date! I guess we'll be bride buddies. I'm getting married at 4:30 on the Sky Deck, how about you?

Just wondering how long ago you booked? If it was very recent I think that there may be a third wedding that day as well.

Cecile, my coordinator sent me some but I just can't really get a good idea of the setting.
If you google "photos of Sky Deck" "Azul Sensatori" or just "Sky Terrace Azul Sensatori" a lot of people's wedding photos pop up. You should get a better idea of the location from there. At least I did. One couple who used Elizabeth Medina (photog) has some great pics on her site of the space.

I know a lot of y'all are doing group excursions, and I'm trying to get one organized, but am having trouble! A lot of our guests are only staying three nights, so if we do an excursion, I want it to be interesting and appeal to a lot of different people. Thoughts?!

 

I am looking at Edventure Tours--http://www.edventuretours.com.mx/home/tours.htm. I like it because people can add on with what they want, and it covers ziplines, snorkeling, Tulum ruins, and private transportation.

 

Or I was also thinking about Xcaret or Xplor. Any thoughts either way on these ideas?

    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
