      we didnt ask for a package, we just said that we wanted a dj, sound system, lights and then i asked for a quote for the 4 lit up columns...thats when all of a sudden the price jumped to almost $4000, so obviously we will not be getting the lit up columns..they look great but thats way too much, and it wasnt even the actual columns that cost so much, it was the labor fees for ppl to set up and transport the columns....so still not sure what were going to do yet...i def want the dj for 4 hours and i def want some kind of lighting b/c i think it makes a big difference...but not willing to spend that much money...do you know if aventura allows any other djs besides J&S? i havent heard back from Yazmin in over a week, so no help there...

      Can I ask what package you were asking for?  I know they asked what our decor was but we aren't going crazy over other decor.  (Just told my FI what your quote was and he just hit the roof).  So far DJ is biggest headache.
       

       

      When we get our quote I will let you know what it is.  Let me know if you want me to email you the info that Yazmin sent to us to compare to what you got. ~Mia

            We asked Yazmin if we could bring in our own DJ when we were down there.  The issue was as she explained it...was that they would need to charge us for the electricity we used (ie: equipment fee) and that would be fairly high.  Although, everything in writing said no outside vendors it did not seem t be impossible. I just think nailing down a price and coordinating may be hard.

              I havent asked her how many weddings are scheduled on the same day. For some reason Im not too worried about it. Im getting there on Monday and the wedding is Friday so I feel like that will give me enough time to plan out things while Im out there.

               

              Unfortunately, I am going back to Mexico for their wedding. My FI is in the wedding. Its at the Iberostar Paraiso. Im not excited about this, but what can I do?

               

              The shower was so Nice!!!!!! I was so happy how well my MOH put it together. We played games and the food was soo good. It was at a Portuguese restaurant in Newark and they played music for us. Everybody had a blast!

              Wow! That is a bit late...Are you planning to go back to Mexico in December? Are they getting married at the same resort? 

              On another note, did you ask Dulce how many other weddings there are on your day? I'm curious to know how many others have been scheduled on mine...
               

              Have fun at your shower tomorrow! Can't wait to hear how it went... :-)

                Usually it takes weeks for me to hear back from her also. I was in shock when she emailed me in 10 minutes LOL

                  It takes atleast 3-4weeks to hear back from out WC. It took a month to hear back from the golfing shop to set up group t-times. However after the first time, he replies a lot faster. I think it took awhile for the email to reach the right person.

                    Nicole,

                     

                    I just emailed you my quote from JSAV. We had DJ at our welcome dinner and our reception w/lighting and it was only $1400. Which is still pricey, but what can you do. I tried to hire an outside vendor for music but Dulce said that they wouldn't have time to show them where all the connections are and they would charge us for them to be on property. So...we paid. I have to admit...it was worth it! We danced all night long!

                      I discovered that it was so much easier to just call them. They have an 800 #. I sat on the phone with Dulce for 30 minutes with my list of questions. Just a thought...
