Hi, DJ Jeff here... I recommend a good DJ that can tune into your program and your guests and serve up the best mix possible. For a small part of the budget, the music entertainment is often the most remembered as it can be the most influential to the flow of the evening. Most DJs with sound and light system run between $150 and 400/hour, not sure about Mexico though. Best wishes for a great celebration!

I was going to use our iPod, but couldn't get a straight answer from the resort about what adapters we needed to bring.

 

So, the day before I ended up burning our playlists onto CD's and usng those. It worked well. I liked it better than a DJ b/c you never know if they are going to have all the music you want played.

 

Our guests were really pleased with our reception music picks ... but we planned for WAY more music than e got to play -- so make sure you put the must-plays up earlier in the playlist! ;-)

Glad to hear that worked well for you. For the record, my clients can count on their music being played, that is key to my success so to hear you say "you never know" leaves me a bit sad 'cause I know what it takes to find a good DJ. A good DJ gets his ego out of the way and takes care of the guests with good instinct and good programming. I have an online event planner with huge music database where MUST PLAYS and all SPECIAL SONGS can be noted along with the program and timeline. angel2.gif Aloha.

Hi! I see our from Philadelphia and getting married at drems Cancun...Well same here! :-) Just thought I'd say hi since we are neighbors!
I planned on doing the same thing with my music and I am hoping all goes well with that..I said to my Fiance that the Cancun Wedding doesn't have to go with the traditional flow, especially since we are having an at home reception when we get back and all the traditional stuff will be done there :-)
