    We are pretty much booked at dreams la romana in the dominican republic and the price for the DJ for 4 hours is $250 total!?! i even checked with the WC and that includes all their equipment. that seems really low to me, it is b/c the area or that the resort just opened. the wedding packages are lower than the other dreams resorts in mexico. we were planning originally to bring down a ipod and rent speakers or buy a bose docking station but the price of the DJ is cheaper or the same price. has anyone heard anything about the DJ at dreams la romana? should i be worried or just go for it?

      Wow..thats super cheap! I'm getting married at a Dreams Puerto Aventuras in Mexico and the DJ is $190/hr. $250 is a steal! I say go for it as long as you aren't picky about music selection. Maybe ask the WC if you can provide the DJ with a list of songs in advance, or if you can bring some CDs of songs you like.

        I'm also getting married at the DLR and am at the music planning stage. We also couldn't believe how cheap the DJ is. I was going back and forth with booking it as well but in the end decided to go with it. Tiara said we were able to make the song lists and she would pass them along to the DJ. We will also be meeting with him when we get there. As long as we can pick the music we are happy. This will save so much time finding all of our songs, downloading them, finding a good Ipod dock to bring, ect. Also the DJ can introduce people and dances.

        Did you decide to go ahead and book it or are you still waiting?

          Hmmm...I'm halfway through downloading all the music for our reception and haven't purchased the Bose system yet... might be something to consider.

          It would be nice to have someone else deal with the music situation -- as long as he plays the music in the EXACT order I have it listed! lol
          I think I've mentioned this before, but my co-worker's DJ played the wrong first dance song at her wedding!!! Eek!

            What a great price, lucky you! My resort is charging $300 per hour.

              We havent booked him yet as we are not sure how many ppl are coming, right now we are at 14 ppl total if we get 10 more ppl we will most likely book him to save me the stress and time of getting everything together. but who know this might be something the FI would actually enjoy doing since he did it for his sister's wedding.
