We also decided not to use a DJ, and are just renting the sound system. I really want a mariachi band too, but my fiance doesn't Oh well. I guess I can live without it. I haven't really been planning much either. So far I'm just trying to get all my bridal accessories together.
My wedding planner is Cecilia. So far she's been great to work with and has been responding to my questions faster now that it is getting closer to May.

I think we will do an iPod sound system no matter how big the group we can entertain ourselves I am sure. The cost for DJ seems large comparatively speaking. I am still not sure weather I want reception on the beach or pool side. Cannot make up my mind. I def want Mariachi band at some point and maybe guitar for the ceremony still debating. The planning is pretty minimal right now although I am sure there are a million things I SHOULD be doing like place cards or something. I am pretty sure I want to do a welcome bag although I am sure they will be a pain to ship and deliver to rooms, but I think it's a nice touch and makes everyone feel like your thinking of them.
Is Valeria your planner? How have things been going in your planning?
