I decided on outside everything to be honest with you such as: photagraphy, makeup/hair stylist, florist, and now I think I am gonna do that DJ bob!
Basically, I am extremely picky and I seen the iberostar's flower book that they let you pick from (well almost 50% of it at least) AND I didn't like anything...AND they couldn't get the flowers I wanted (orchids)... AND THEY WERE CHARGING ME MORE THAN DOUBLE what my florist is charging me (and he's giving me way way way more flowers)... AND I wanted alot of flowers and decorations that they just couldn't accomodate because they only have 6 VASES. So that's it in a nut shell! Told ya I am picky!
Yep, they (iberostar) can definetly decorate anything you want cake table, sign in table, with flowers etc... but remember they don't have that many vases so ideas are limited along with their flower selection I think it's like roses, stargazers, lillies, daises and some orchids (but they are $5 a stem)!
Good Advice: ALWAYS ALWAYS ask gabriela/reyna everything 2 times they love to say 'yes' the first time and than when you ask them again to put something in writting their answers always change (or maybe that's just my unfortunate luck)!
I emailed that DJ bob and he sent me a reply saying this:
First of all Congratulations.
I would love to DJ/MC your wedding. I already am booked for 11 weddings that month and fortunately I still have your date available at this time. Let me tell you a little about myself and try to answer all your questions.I moved down here to the Mexican Riviera Maya 8 years ago from New Jersey so I do speak English. We'll some people would dispute that. My web site is weddingdjrivieramaya.com. I am a professional DJ/MC and have performed for over 450 shows and weddings. I have a wide range of music. 4000 of the most played/danced wedding songs including everything you listed. I am also able to down load a song should you request something I do not have in my library prior to the reception. I have worked at one of the Iberostars before I believe.My fee for four hours of music, (no breaks, includes everything, my equipment, lighting, mic's too) is $475 US. Very reasonable price hey?If you are interested all you need to do in order to lock in your reception date is make a $100 US deposit into my Pay Pal account at email@example.com. Also make sure the hotel knows you are bringing in an outside vendor and don't be afraid to dispute any outrageous charge they might try to add. Please let me know if you have any other questions. My US satellite # is 732-812-4521.Looking forward to hearing from you.
So I am gonna see if he can do $450 like he is doing for the other wedding on here and go from there... My TA has an email into gabriela to see if there are any charges for using an outside dj besides a possible daypass thing. I can let you know what she says if you like?!?
Could you send me stuff about the prices from your florist? Maybe some samples etc?? My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
