    Are you having a DJ?

    And which Ojos Asi from Shakira are you playing? The one from the MTV Unplugged is my favorite.
    Ah, a fellow spanish music lover! I forgot Ricky Martin's La Bomba! I'll probably play the MTV Unplugged version of Shakira's "Ojos Asi". I just saw her in concert over the weekend and am obsessed with everything Shakira (old stuff) again. Yes, we're having a DJ. His name is Raul from AVL systems. I'm trying to coordinate with David Flores from AVL, but he's been very unresponsive. I'm starting to get scared he won't show up for my wedding. We haven't even gone over my song list yet - so annoying!

      Yeah, I'm sure you're just eager to cross that off your list! The only songs I'm worried the DJ won't have is the Country songs my FI picked out. I'm sure they have all those Spanish music though! I am debating as to how much Spanish pop songs to include... I think I may add more Salsa. 8 of us are all taking weekly Salsa lessons to be able to shake it out on the dance floor. It's cute to see everybody excited about dancing Salsa at the wedding. I have the DJ Adan Mijares... I just got his name this past weekend from the coordinator. I haven't heard anything about him. I have a feeling all the DJs down there are about the same.

      i took salsa lessons with my parents...they love to salsa!

      and i think you are right about DJ's down there...i haven't heard anyone rave about their DJ...the amazing thing is, it isnt that hard if they just follow the song list.

        Aren't salsa lessonss fun? I love him, but my poor FI doesn't have much rhythm. Regarding the music, I'm buring the few songs I think the DJ won't know on a CD just in case. I figure it's better to be safe than sorry!

          Yeah, I really do not have very high expectations regarding the DJ... which is so unfortunate since he is a chunk of my budget.

          We have had so much fun doing the Salsa lessons. I really hope we can at least sort of look like we know what we're doing out on the dance floor!

            I know - I am really nervous about the DJ! I can't imagien they're going ot be very good... I'm leaning towards an iPod, a fancy soound system and designating a friend to be in charge. Has anyone done this successfully yet? Hmmm... maybe I'll post a new thread for that question - seems ripe for discussion! to iPod or not ti iPod - that is the question.

                  Okay, this may sound cheesy but I just love that sound from the movie Ghost.
                  I think it may be called Unchained Melody?
                  Does anyone know the name of the song and the artist
