    Hello!

    Has anyone used or will be using a DJ in the future that's located in Riviera Maya? We're having our wedding at Barcelo Maya next January. Is it worth it? Would only an Ipod and speakers be ok? We are both huge music fans and find it rather important to have LOTS of it at our wedding! If anyone hired a DJ...who, cost, time frame, own music, etc? Any information youu guys have would be fantastic!

    Thanks so much!!!

    Sandra

      Try searching the forum. There are lots of DJ's in RM. DJ Mannia is even doing a 30% off promo if you book by the end of April. There are also alot of girls just using ipods. DJ's and iPods have been discussed ALOT

        Any idea how much DJ services will cost if we decide to go with DJ Mannia? And what's included in the price? 30% off sounds like a pretty good deal (unless their fees are outrageous to begin with!!)

          You should defintely take advantage of past threads that have discussed DJs in the area as they are full of lots of info, including prices. Also best to just contact/email these DJs directly as their prices may differ depending on your needs:

          Here are some, and if you use the forum's handy dandy search option you will find tons of others in the Riviera Maya vendors section:

            We used DJ Bob and he was great. He was really reasonable too I forget the exact amount but he really got our group going.

            We used Mannia and he was fantastic - and very reasonable. do a search - I know that one of the threads had his prices for last year in them. It will at least be a starting point with regard to pricing, etc.

              Thanks for all the info ladies! I contacted Mannia and we were quoted $630 (taxes included) for 4 hours (this is with the 30% off). Sounds pretty reasonable to me! They want a $200 deposit wired to them from our bank to theirs. Has anyone done this? It's a little uncomfortable. I would rather send a certified check or use paypal. I dunno, something "safer". But being that they're well known, I guess it'd be ok. Should I worry?

              We wired money - no problems. just make sure to keep a copy of the wire instructions that your bank gives you. We had a bit of a problem tracking it down, but it was easily fixed.

              Also, before you commit to anything check with your hotel. some of them have weird policies about outside vendors.
