      I want to have our reception at the seaside grill Terrance. I recall this location from our last trip to dreams Tulum and it would be perfect, if we could have it private. If not private, ill prob go with the pool deck what about you? I want more info on the lanterns too! Landy just quote me $150 set up fee for 10-15 lanterns.... Ew. Lol, pricey or am I cheap?

          She said I could do the chair sashes myself, not positive if she meant the laterns too or what but I hope so. She also said they charge 120$ for bringing your own DJ. I want in on the cheap lanterns too! I found them. It they didn't have my color... Save On crafts has a ton of good stuff, the lanterns come in a ton of colors, they more you buy the cheaper they are...

            tulumbride- Im not sure why the stores wouldnt pop up under the names. All I did when I bought mine was type in paper lanters and quite a few options popped up. I just made sure I didn't have to pay shipping when I was picking mine.

             

            I haven't received a quote yet for our set up, we have ALOT of stuff to set up including the lanterns ha ha so hopefully it wont be ridiculous. I wasnt told about the 120$ charge for bringing in your own DJ. We just sent our planning forms and that info wasnt in there. We were told (and its included in the paperwork) that we are only allowed 3 hours for the DJ and we have to pay extra per person for another hour...that is pretty much the only thing thats bugging me since we have paid for 5 hours of DJ services. We end up paying an extra 350 for the extra hour.

             

            We're having our reception on the beach!!

              Wooowww. I can't believe they only allow the DJ for three hours without more fees. I got five hours too, and the DJ had said he would do music for the ceremony if we had our reception and ceremony close to each other. Honestly I'm so mad right now. Just over being nickel and dimed. If I may vent ... I emailed Landy some questions,ten days later some things were pressing I needed her answers, so I resent the same email just as a reminder. She finally got back to me. She sent 18 emails ,all the same. I guess I was bugging her... Or her computer was acting up. Unprofessional either way. We dont have that much stuff, just table runners, centerpeices, And only 20 ppl so far. any ideas for mood lighting other than lanterns and candles?

                I'm gonna have the reception either by the pool or the beach but I was told if u have it at the beach and u have candles they won't stay lit. And I'm also feeling the same, it feels like they charge a fortune for everything , like really 300$ to hang lanterns plus 150 to set up chairs and stuff that's crazy !! I may be cheap but that stuff adds up quick and if I remember correctly I don't think u have an option to hang the lanterns urself ..

                  Sooo... A bit off topic- I guess my fiancĀ© thinks that a DJ mighty be a bit much for our wedding, we aren't big dancers and we have like 25 guests at max. I think the DJ is important for just structure, he'll introduce us, and announce things, what do you all think?he says we can go to the disco to dance, but I think I'd we're paying for a three hour reception we should stay at the reception, no one wants to hear crickets chirping. Any ideas for other entertainment? Fire dancers?

                    I'm stuggling with the exact same problem. We will only have around 17 people so i think thats a little small of a crowd to have a dj . I think we're just gonna bring an iPod and play music and after that who ever wants to keep dancing goes to the disco . I worry to that it will be boring but I guess everyone will be talking and having a good time. Any other brides or pass brides can give advice ??

                      Yes i mean, I don't want ppl saying,"this is lame, let's bounce " lol. I want some form of entertainment! The DJ is in the budget, my fiancĀ© just doesn't want an empty dance floor and ppl feeling uncomfortable... Hopefully the WC has a good idea... Dee dreams, are you all doing a tequila tasting?
