Hi! 

 

I saw you asked about DJ All Music - we had them at our wedding at EDR in November. We really enjoyed them. They played everything we asked and nothing we didn't want played. They also followed our requested timing and kept our dinner/reception moving right along. If I can answer any questions about them, please feel free to PM me.

3. Did you use the preferred DJ?  DJ All Music I believe.  I looked at his website and it looks like it would be about $2000 to have him for the cocktail hour and reception.  Seems a little expensive but with the $800 vendor fee, I doubt we'd be able to bring an outside vendor in that would be any cheaper.  What was your experience with DJ All Music?  If you brought someone else in, how was it and (if you don't mind me asking) how much did it cost?

Hi ladies

 

Im getting married April 9, 2014 and I want to get a head start on planning things.

 

Wondering if any of you picked the lobster and steak dinner for your guests?

 

What dinner menus are the best?

 

Thanks!

Hi Endiz,

 

We are GIVC and GI Wedding consultants with Karisma Hotels and are able to offer upgrades with our bookings.  Usually about 1 upgrade for every 5 rooms booked through us but it depends on factors like what room category they booked, if they book early enough, etc.

 

This thread has more info on wht rooms qualify, etc.:

Hey Everyone,


Are there ever free upgrade options if we book with a group of 30 or more people? When we went to a destination wedding back in 2008 @ DR, every guest got a free upgrade to a premium suite.


We are planning on having the wedding in 06/2014, so we do have the luxury to wait for sweet deals.

 

Thanks!

    Our photographer is a close friend of ours and will be attending the wedding anyways. She is staying at the hotel for 3 nights, and they did not have a problem with that. I'm pretty sure if you do not use one of the resorts "approved" photographers, then you will pay an outside vendor fee.

    Usually with a photographer who is family or friend is "approved" by the resort. They are aware one of the guests is your photographer. But when it comes to a photographer who has been hired down there, and coming onto the property they have the right to approve/ not approve specific people. So at least let your WC know, so that you don't get caught out later.

    Hey Everyone, Are there ever free upgrade options if we book with a group of 30 or more people?

    I think promotions, upgrades and specials change constantly. Plus depended on your place of departure and your tour operator, they might have different deals. Highly suggest talking with a travel agent to see what is available to you for the possible date you have picked. And if you use a GI certified travel agent, they usually have some bonuses since they deal with Karisma directly. I can recommend Wright Travel...click on the link below in my signature for their deals and contact info! Good luck!

      Hey we are getting married on November 16, 2013. We did hold 30 rooms with our reservation and was told at certain dates we will have the options of releasing some of those rooms back if we think they wont book up. We have only had about 4 rooms that have been booked so far. Seems like the same thing for us, people are saying they are coming, but just haven't booked yet:( When are you thinking you are gonna send out your invites?? Did you send out save-the-dates?? Thanks:)

      Thanks murmel- I appreciate the input. Tarasteve- they should be out by the end of the month, there was an issue with the pkg containing the proof for my invites so I'm supposed to get the second pkg today. My vendor promised she wud put a rush on them once I give her the ok. I sent out save the dates back in November. I meant to get the invites out in February but the vendor I'm using was very backed up.
