Hi Katie!

 

We paid $1500 for the dance floor. Its kind of pricey but worth every penny! How much have they quoted you?

 

It was $1500 for the beach reception which included the bar, set up of the tables and chairs. 

 

It was the resort DJ and it cost $650. We had an MC and he dealt with the DJ. We just brought our ipod again with the songs for first dances and he showed the DJ what song to play at certain times. The microphone was included with this as well. 

 

The after party at the resort disco was great. Not all of our guests went to the disco but it didn't hurt that we had a large group with us.  By that time you are sooo wedding pumped from all the events earlier its hard not to have fun. Especially if you stay in your wedding dress!  The disco was like being at a mini club. There are other hotel guests there of course but it just added to our fun.  We also went to the sports bar before & after the disco for nachos and hot dogs. 

 

If you think of any other questions just let me know!

Robynn you rock, thx so much for this additional info.

 

I believe the more expensive dancefloor was something like 1600, but I am planning on bargaining with resorts regardless of the quotes they give over email lol!

 

So with the 1500 for the reception, was this cost at a PER PERSON Rate? Or did they just say "50 people, 3hrs of service, 1500". So glad the MC and DJ worked out, and 650 is not too bad for a DJ.

 

Yay for discos and wedding pump! Eeek so excited :):)  Thanks again Robynn! I am sure I'll hit ya up again for q's later ;)

I also meant to ask you how you organized your dance reception - did you do your "grand entrance" here, with the first dance, etc? Then speeches? We discussed how we would potnetially set this up since we have a separate place for a dinner (i.e. we can't do speeches at the dinner location, as per resort's feedback)>

    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
    • Two of my friends are going to get married next month. Out of them one is suffering from serious teeth issue. He is having bleeding gums along with jaw pain and swelling, particularly around the gums or around the jaw. Because of the teeth issue, he is not able to make the arrangements for the marriage. Is it safe to carry out tooth extraction during this period of time? How painful is dental implants during and after the procedure? Will he be able to eat food after tooth extraction? Please share your views and suggestions. Thank you!
