      We had the DJ do it, but he was terrible. Played the wrong music and none of the stuff that I had on the list that I gave him. I recommend renting the sound system from Dreams, making your own play list, and asking one of your guests to be in charge of the music for the ceremony.

      Did you have music played for the ceremony (processional, recessional) and if so did you hire a DJ to play it or use your own sound system (ipod, etc)? We're getting married on the beach & it costs $100 to hire their DJ for the ceremony. Our ceremony is probably going to be less than 1/2 hour long so I really don't think it's worth the extra cost, but I'm worried that bringing our own ipod & speakers may not be loud enough for either the guests or me to hear (like knowing when to walk down the aisle).

      Did any of you run into this? If you brought your own system was it loud enough? And who manned the ipod? How did you know when to start walking down the aisle? Just wondering if it's too much of a pain to coordinate and whether I should just suck it up & pay the 100 bucks.

      Thanks chicas!

        Thanks Aut! That's a really good idea!
        I wonder if one of those Bose stereo/speaker ipod hook-ups would work.

          i think our set up might have been part of the package. we didn't care what we walked down to, but gave gaby a cd of 'tie the knot' by digital underground for when we walked back out. they just set up their own speakers. it was plenty loud enough. there was actually feedback during the ceremony and that was SOOO loud.

            Thanks Lauren! Yeah, it seems Dreams has been adding extra costs for people lately (like $100 to add a few chairs during the cocktail hour, seriously?!?) I thought it'd be included since we're renting their DJ anyway, but Rebeca said it's $100 for the dj to do your ceremony music. From what Autumn experienced it sounds like it's really not worth it if he's gonna mess it up anyway!

              I recently found out that due to the lack of space we will no longer be able to have a buffet....I am having a hard time deciding which menu items we should have for both the cocktail hour and for the dinner....
              Is there any dishes or appetizers your guests were raving about....or on the flip side recommend not getting?
              Thanks so much
              Bride & Groom plus 86 booked!!!

                  Okay guys, I talked to Rebeca from Dreams PV today and got the skinny on the new outside vendor policies. What Rebeca told me is that the new vendor fees only apply if you are hiring outside a la carte BUT if you have an outside wedding coordinator and/or designer (i.e. us! , and we bring, as part of our service, an outside vendor (i.e. furniture, cake, DJ, photographer, etc.) you won't be charged an outside vendor fee.

                  I'm not swearing this will be like this forever. And I definitely think you should make sure you get anything and everything in writing, but this is what the new policy means today . Any questions, just let me know!
