DJ Mannia - Cancun Review from 4/25 Wedding

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to share my experience using Carlos with DJ Mannia. Very early in our planning stages we talked about using a DJ and I emailed back and forth with Carlos because I had heard such wonderful things. His reputation stood true and he was responsive and attentive. Unfortunately at the time it seemed our budget would not allow for a DJ and we were just planning on using an Ipod, but then at the last minute (2 weeks before we left) we decided we could squeeze it in! I emailed Carlos and within minutes I had a resonse that they were available and a quote! Out of the entire planning process this was by far the easiest! Carlos sent me a playlist and we had everything confirmed so quickly.

 

Before we left I kind of left some items open ended because I was so scatterbrained but lucky for us Carlos was on the ball and called the resort to check in with me! During our phone conversation we confirmed the special songs (first dance, father/daughter, mother/son, etc.) and he had them all available even with my last minute requests! I asked Carlos what time he would arrive to be set up and he told me 4:00 for a 6:30 reception. I plan events in the states and DJ's are infamous here for being late but Carlos did not let me down!! He was set up very early and ready to go. After our pictures were done we ran over to say hello to Carlos and he had me listen to a couple songs to confirm they were right and off to cocktail hour we went. When we arrived to the reception Carlos was playing our song and announced us and we went right into our first dance. So much fun and everything was perfect. The dinner music was great choices and as soon as we finished eating the party got started! I've never been to a wedding where nobody was in a chair, he did such a good job of getting everyone moving. We were having so much fun I totally forgot about cutting the cake but again Carlos was on the ball and announced it and stayed organized.

 

Needless to say I was thrilled with the service we received from DJ Mannia. They are super easy to work with and really responsive with questions/concerns. I think anyone who works with this company will be amazed by the customer service you receive and your reception will be so much fun! Thank you DJ Mannia for making our wedding reception unforgettable!

We just returned from our December 5th wedding at NOW Sapphire.  One of our best wedding planning decisions was hiring DJ Mannia!!!  Carlos did an AMAZING job and kept the dance floor packed from beginning to end.  I would absolutely recommend using this company!!!

I got married at NOW Sapphire on April 23, 2014 and am not exaggerating when I say that it was one of the best nights of partying I’ve ever had in my life!  We hired DJ MANNIA and it was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding.  Carlos was AMAZING and DJ’d our wedding like it was a club. The dance floor was packed all night long and people were still ready to party when the wedding ended at midnight, so we all headed to the disco and closed it down at 1am, then tried to find a beach party because we were all still so high on life and wedding bliss.  We paid to have a lit-up dance floor from DJ MANNIA and it was worth every single penny we spent.  It really added to the ambiance and party atmosphere.  If you’re thinking about hiring DJ MANNIA, I would say DO IT!!!  It was less expensive than hiring the resort DJ and the quality of the work was so much better.  They are the best!!

    • Hi! I'm from the US (but I've been to the UK 6x- my finance says i'm not allowed to move there! lol) Many resort lines don't offer something like the dress rehearsal, which I think is crazy! It's such a smart idea!  Having been to Mexico so much, I find it so much more comfortable- Yes there are dangers but I don't find it any worse than Philly or NY. It is a country that gets SO MUCH money from the service industry- it literally benefits no one to mess with tourists. Your tip money at the bar is feeding someones family. Not that the DR is any different in that it relies on tourist $, but the vibe is just totally different.  In the DR, they were really very serious about us not leaving the resorts (we did- I don't believe in staying on resorts lol). Once off, we realized why. Now, full disclosure, we went right after the 2010 earthquake, so this was a) some time ago and b) right after a natural disaster. Once we left we just felt immediately uncomfortable. (We even saw a man approaching a goat with  a large gun and the Taxi driver seemed nervous and sped away- poor goat!) I find in Mexico everyone is SO respectful- in the DR I had guys make lewd comments (both from those off the resort, and more disturbingly from workers at the resort), grabbing at me, just generally super disrespectful and not at all comforting. My dad had to kick the room service guy out of our room bc he refused to leave when we asked!  This could have been completely isolated to the staff at our specific resort, but it definitely happened off resort as well. A la Anthony Bourdain, I have always considered myself a traveller, not a tourist, so I have zero interest in staying on a resort the entire time (really I'm not in love with resorts period lol), so for me, if I can't go off resort safely, what business do I have being there at all? Also they  made be throw out my coffee before I got on the plane- the coffee I got at the food court at the gate. I'm holding that grudge LOL. A long story short- it's not on my list of returns. I can honestly say that I'm not sure I would accept an invitation to a wedding in the DR- I think I'd rather save that money and go to Mexico! (or the UK, or Iceland, or just Europe in general lol)  I don't regret going, but I'd sooner go to Mexico if I'm looking for a beach!  That's just me- millions of people go there and have a great time! I guess it really comes down to what type of traveller you are (are you okay with being on a resort and just leaving for excursions)!
    • Hello, thank you so much for this it’s all very helpful.. are you from the UK OR US? ive never been and I probably won’t visit the destination until I get married! Oh my gosh I have looked at your resort it is beautiful!! my family have been to the Dominican.. can I ask why you didn’t find it as safe?   Thanks again 
    • Hi! Well, I stumbled on this forum, and then when I realized it was run by a travel agency (while being really impartial- the fact that there are reviews for OTHER agencies was a good sign!) I didn't look any further! Their website, where you can fill out a contact form:  https://www.wrighttravelagency.com/ Babs actually sent me an email on a Sunday (she had been out of the office on Friday) so that's how we started- I was so impressed right off the bat! You may not get Babs, but I can only imagine that the entire office is amazing! We're getting married at Azul Riveria Cancun (formerly Sensatori). We chose it because we have kids coming. We actually just went down for the Brides Dress Rehearsal (A really cool program Karisma Resorts do, where they give you a special price/couple to go down and check out some resorts, meet wedding planners and vendors etcetc- it's great having never been there to leave knowing and seeing it all- http://www.memorablemomentsweddings.com/Memorable-Moments-Weddings-Dress_Rehearsal.cfm) I'm pretty laid back- it's Mexico. Where ever you are, how ever it's decorated, whatever the weather is- it's going to be gorgeous. I wanted a destination wedding so that I could not worry about things! It will be what it will be- and regardless of what it is, MEXICO! lol I did just see a post about travel guidelines for the DR (Below). Just something to consider, it seems really restrictive! Have you been to the DR? I'm struggling at the moment with people who are afraid to travel to Mexico, which I've always found funny because I've been 6 times and I'm still alive! AND only 3 of those times were on resorts! I felt the least safe of all my travels in the DR, so it's just something that I like to mention!
    • Hello, oh thank you that’s great, how can I come across her details? where are you getting married and how have you found planning so far? 
    • I've had nothing but an amazing experience with my TA, Barbara (Babs) Vong- she actually works for Wright Travel Agency- the ones that run this forum! I'd suggest reaching out to them first- they're the experts!   My wedding is in February of 2020, and we started planning around August 2018, for what it's worth on a timeline.
