    Hey ladies, I was wondering if any Dreams brides have used the ipod and speakers at the resort? I wanted to see if they were high quality and if they projected sound well. I was trying to cut my budget a bit and skip the DJ. If anyone has any thoughts let me know! Thanks so much

      We rented the speakers and mic and hooked up our ipod. The sound was great and we had no problems what so ever. It was $200 for the night. We only had 24 people so I didn't feel that we needed to hire a DJ. We made 2 playlists, one to be played during dinner (mostly love songs) and then we made a playlist of dance music.

        Thanks for the help Kristen! Did you also use them for your ceremony music? Did you get married at Dreams? Thanks so much!

          Yeah I got married at Dreams too. For the ceremony we had the mariachi band. They played "Here comes the bride" when I walked out and played during coctail hour too. If you are getting one the wedding packages it will be included. I got the Ultimate package. Are you using a package or booking everything seperately?

            We are using the Ultimate package also. Yarai, said I could create a playlist for the ceremony too, so I may do that. Then during the cocktail hour the trio can play. Totally off the subject but since you used the ultimate package, I was hoping you could help me with a few other things.

            *what cake did you use?
            *What items did you choose for your menu? I wanted to do filet and lobster but I have heard good things and bad things about it.
            *I have also heard that the salon at Dreams was pretty bad. Did you use them?

            Thanks so much Kristen!

              I have been a terrible bride with planning But I think we might end up using an Ipod as well...seems pretty simple and saves money!

                This is exactly what we did. It worked out perfectly. We had a dinner and a dancing playlist which was perfect. Acutally most of our friends brought their ipods down during the dancing part and we just switched out the ipods and played from everyone's. IT was really fun. PLus the sounds quality was perfect, we were on the oceana terrace so it was small enough that the speakers were perfect.

                We decided to do this as well. After talking to a few people it makes the most sense.

                We decided to do it after attending a friends' wedding this past september. She had a live band, over 300 ppl and a huge hall, and honestly the best music...the songs everyone loved...were played on an ipod. The bad was ok, but no one cared they were there. So I figure that for a wedding of under 40 ppl its a waste of money to pay a dj :)

                  We used a dj and he was good, but we could have just used an ipod. We saw a few weddings at Dreams that used an ipod and they looked and sounded great! Good luck to you!

                    For those of you who just rented the speakers, Dreams didn't charge you $200 for each location did they? It was just $200 for the night? Just wanted to double check, since there seems to be location charges for decor setup....
