        I have been in looong negotiations with their DJ. He is very expensive! After complaining about his steep price, he lowered it about 50%, but its still pricey. I feel like its still steep bc there is a local DJ (that is on the forum) who charges less and offers more for his services. The resort DJ is definitely willing to work with you, but I feel like renting the equipment and using your IPOD is better. From what I hear its almost like having a DJ anyways bc they have someone man the station for you.

          Which resort DJ are you working with? It seems as tho they have two vendors they work with. J&S and another one. Did either do stages or do you need to go to another vendor for that? Are you able to share any price sheets you got from them? If so email me at sarakadow@yahoo.com

          Thanks!

            Dulce only recommended J&S to me. The boss was the one who I was talking to. He was very quick in responding to my every email. Im not sure about stages, you may have to go through someone else for that. I know he provides a projector and screen for extra $. I will email you the packages he sent me.

              David Pena was the resort photographer my daughter had at her wedding at Aventura Spa Palace. He was brilliant. These are only a few of his shots:

                  I Just used J&S and they were great! I rented to the ipod station, speakers, microphone. They introduced us and worked my playlist, it went off without a hitch well worth the $ and almost as good as a DJ.

                    We legally got married 3 month before our mexican wedding and didn't tell anyone. I didn't want to go through the hassle of getting bloodwork in Mexico or getting our marriage certificate translated from Spanish to English.

                    I'm very glad we did it this way. I told Dulce that no one knew we were doing a symbolic ceremony instead of a civil ceremony. Everything was perfect. Just an FYI: if you get married first and do a symbolice ceremony in Mexico Dulce needs a copy of your marriage certificate.

                      Did you just have to pay the $400 then? Because there was no offical DJ. Did you have a dance floor?
