    Hi Kcar,


    I just hired DJ Chris Love (http://djchrislove.w...ddingdjvallarta)  - he was recommended by my decorator Tamara Bradley (she's great too).  I checked references on him and also spoke to him via skype.  My wedding is on June 1, 2013 so I can let you know more after our wedding.

        Hi Ladies!  I have been searching through this thread for specific info on this an I just can't find anything.  Can any past Dreams PV brides help?!


        I'm getting married on May 25th at Dreams with our ceremony and reception on the beach.  My FI and I are planning on bringing a portable Bose systems and using an ipod for music, but it isn't compatible with a microphone.  I'm guessing we will need a microphone for the ceremony and for the reception.  Any thoughts on how to work this out, other than paying the big bucks to rent the resorts sound system?


        Thanks to you all!

            hola Richelle

            I work for dreams Villamagna in nuevo vallarta, I do highly recomend the sound system for the ceremony, if you have over 10 guests, otherwise they won't be abble to hear the all ceremony, sometimes the price of the resorts rentals can be high, but it totally worth it, the services that they provide are 100% guarantee. bringing your own sound system can be more cost efective , but also stressfull at the moment of run it, becuase some of your guests member have to be taking care of it, remember is your special day and moment, it have to be perfect. :) if you need any assiance or more info please let me know. :)

              I'm getting married January 27th and can't justify spending that amount of money to rent a sound system. We just booked a DJ for the ceremony and reception for $650 plus $100 to dreams for the outside vendor fee. Music is really important to us as we want our guests to have a good time.

                Did anyone or is anyone purchasing extra flowers for the ceremony alter? I have about 4 months and 2 weeks to go and I'm starting to stress about the small stuff. I'm not sure the extra cost will be worth it.

I think?  She did a good job for us!  She can also perform your ceremony and she speaks English...she is American.  We had a legal ceremony performed by a judge and she spoke English....pretty much everyone there does.  2nd, the hair and makeup they did at the salon at Dreams was fantastic!  I also do not wear a lot of makeup and I have freckles so I was nervous about that...I have had my makeup done for other weddings and hated it since I always looked washed out.  Eduardo did my hair and makeup and I loved it!  My whole wedding party was pretty much like me...doesnt wear a lot of makeup and everyone looked beautiful!  Good luck with your planning!

                  danasb788 this is very helpful! I haven't done much research on DJ's yet, is DJ Staci one of the DJ's the resort offers or did you have to pay the vendor fee to bring her to the resort? Do you have contact info for her? These were very good questions! Thanks Kate G!

                    I tried to hire DJ Staci for my wedding (after reading good things about her on this blog).  She has actually moved out of PV and is back in the states, but she still does wedding planning/coordinating for weddings in PV.  I hired both my DJ and officiant through her.  She is really responsive and has had lots of good recommendations for all sorts of wedding stuff.  And she is really familiar with the resort too, so she was able to give me an outsider's insight into weddings there.  The people she hires out are people that she personally knows and has worked with.  I haven't had my wedding yet, but so far, everything has been great working with Staci!  Her contact info is at puertovallartawed.com.  The site will lead you to believe she's still in PV doing weddings herself, so it isn't very current, but you can at least get her contact info there.
