    My husband and I had 20 guests including us. We chose to spend the money and go with the DJ. We even extended the reception/DJ time by 2 hours for I think only an additional $200. It was money well spend. We bought a jam box to use for the bonfire, but with the wind, waves, and music from the reception going on at the wedding gazebo, you could barely hear it. It was awesome though.

    As for 1st dances, intro of B&G. toasts, cutting the cake, etc......the DJ was perfect. The DJ will pull you aside and talk to you for a moment about the intro. He will have nice things to say during the cake cutting, and basically make sure everything goes seamlessly. They played the perfect music during dinner, and then play the party music when it's time to dance. They are excellent at getting everyone up and dancing. Our guests who absolutely never dance and are terrible dancers were up dancing and having a blast. The DJ/MC was not cheesy at all. I highly highly recommend using the DJ. They were better than any DJ's I have heard at weddings here in the states.

    They have all the music you could want. We gave cecilia and the AV manager a list of songs for 1st dance, etc. (We met with them after our arrival to go over the contract, pay, etc). We also gave him a list of songs we did not want played, and songs we did want played. We told him other than that we wanted some country songs, some latin music, and wanted people up dancing). They made it happen and everything went smoothly and was really perfect. We told them it was ok to play songs that guests requested during the reception as well (if there were any requests).

     

    I know many people here use a music box and have a wonderful time, but for us the DJ made the reception what it was. Everyone said it was the nicest wedding they have every been to, and the most fun they have ever had at a wedding reception. We did not have a huge reception when we arrived home for all of the guests who could not make it. I know that sometimes plays a part in cost. We spent our entire budget in Mexico.

    Did you have the Mexican trio too?

      Has anyone had a morning wedding at SM, and what was your timeline like? I was just told that the 11am is the only time available for all 3 dates I requested, and not sure what to do to keep the guests entertained. I wanted a DJ, but feel weird having to end it in the early afternoon. If I could, I'll start at 11am, and have cocktails in the late afternoon, then dinner and dancing until 11pm, but not sure if the resort would let me do that.

        We did the Mexican trio as well. We had that during our cocktail hour. The guests enjoyed it. We were having our pictures during that time so we missed the cocktail hour.  I did hear from a guest who attended that the trio at some points were just standing there and not playing. She said she told them to play when they were just standing around.

              Did any previous brides make table runners?  If so can you tell me how long they were or can you tell me how large the tables are?  From the pictures that I can see it looks like they sat 8 people which I'm guessing is 60 inches around, but I was hoping someone might be able to confirm.  Thank you!!

                I'd be interested to know as well! Have you asked Cecilia (or whoever is your WC, not sure if there's more than one at SMB)?

                  Does anyone know who the preferred DJ is at SM? I emailed Cecilia but no response yet.
