You have to book your DJ through the resort (last I heard, but it seems like lots is changing with the WCs changing!), so you can request Doremixx but you go through the resort to book him. I believe the resort charges $300 per hour (plus tax).

I didn't book him becuse of the cost.  We're doing the other option which is to bring an Ipod or Cd's and use the resort's sound system.  It's $198 per hour which is still pricey but less than a DJ.  And it comes with a music technician that will play everything when you want it (first dance, mother/son dance, etc.)

There are other DJs, but you would have to talk to the WC to see who else they use/recommend. The price is $300/hr regardless.

 

I've booked Doremixx because I've heard such good things about them on here and Ivan has been great to work with so far. For that hourly rate everything you need is included: lighting, sound system, etc. They provide all the music, like a DJ would anywhere. But of course you can request and customize according to your own tastes. I don't think you would want them to entirely MC your event (but past brides chime in if I'm wrong here! I'm personally having someone else be the main MC), but they will make announcements etc if you are just looking for something basic in that regard. Also included with Doremixx (not sure about other DJs) are balloons and other fun favors, and cold fireworks. I'm really excited about those extras!

Hi everyone! This thread is full of great information! We haven't decided on our wedding date yet but we're strongly considering early October 2011 (like 10/1/11). I'm having anxieties about the weather around that time...is anyone else getting married in the fall? Has anyone been during that time of year? Our back up plan would be June, July, even August but doesn't it get really hot? Thanks in advance for your help and input.

I was there last year in late October, and the weather was great!  Not too hot, but still very warm.  It barely rained the entire time.  I know that some people do not have such great luck though during this time of year.

October is at the tail end of hurricane season, and June, July, and August are in the middle of it. I was the maid of honor in a wedding 5 years ago on Oct. 20 and Hurricane Wilma hit. We spent 5-6 days just trying to get out of Mexico. Heat probably isn't your biggest concern. Make sure to ask the WC what the contingency plan is in case of hurricane if you do it during hurricane season. It will probably be cheaper and safer if you do early December. Good luck!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
