I've been trying to find out the same thing...  Ive read Photophil say that the resort has purchased new DJ equipment and my wedding coordinator has assured me alot of people are choosing the resort DJ this year that we should be hearing some reviews soon. 

 

I am surprised that the resort has not tryed to promote their DJs more or even made a website to get more information and put them out there with so many brides choosing outside vender DJ's over the resorts.. 

 

I personally do not want to pay the added money for the "outside vender fee" in addition to the DJ's cost

(  I would have LOVED to have DJ MANNIA but unfortunately he is not in our budget )

  BUT also am leary of booking a resort DJ with no reviews or information to go on LOL  ..  Hopefully we will get some reviews soon!  :)

I feel the same about the vendors fee.  The thing with the DJ is, if I would be better bringing an ipod, I would rather do that then pay the extra for a DJ.  I will most likely get the DJ so things won't be too tacky. I would hate to be worried about controlling the ipod the day of my wedding.  i am hoping more reviews pop up from now til then. DJ Mannia is definitely not in my budget but their reviews are off the charts! lol

Ladies-

Do any of you feel a bit guilty about having  a destination wedding it's going to cost each guest about $2,000 for 1 week to come to my wedding. I do know its a great opportunity for a vacation and they will have a great time but I feel GUILTY since its so pricey and of course they have the choice to not come- I don't know why when I look at the prices I think they are so high and I feel guilty sad.gif

 

Any of you go through this?

Yes DominicanLeila you are not the only one.. Like you I feel guilty because I want the most beautiful place but unfortunately what I want is pricey for my guess..I'm so torn, don't know what to do..but 2000.00 is way too much, I wouldn't ask my guess..February is Dominican independence maybe that's why is so much..

When we first started looking at prices, we were looking at quotes that were upwards of $2000 from one of our departure cities and that was just too much, so I know how you feel.  In the end when we got more finalized quotes, they came in under $2000 so we were okay with that, but it is hard to ask people to spend that kind of money to join you at your wedding.  Now i've seen that we've had great response and will be having somewhere between 60 and 80 people attending so I think people are okay with the costs.  

 

We considered picking a different resort based on prices, but at the end of the day we decided that we needed to have it where we wanted. You don't know who isn't going to be able to make it regardless of costs and you can't really make decisions based on what other people might or might not do.  And for those guests who were coming no matter what, we wanted to make sure that we had chosen a nice resort. 

 

I don't know if that helps at all, but at least know that you're not alone in this and that you can get to feeling okay about it!  It doesn't bother me any more, but I know at the beginning it did.
