Unfortunately, I can't seem to find anywhere that will sell fewer than 144!!  Has anyone found them elsewhere in a smaller quantity?  At this point, I don't even care if they are personalized or not!

Please let us know what you find out!!  I sent him an email and haven't heard back.  I wonder if that means we don't have to pay for their day pass..??

The lighted dance floor and props are included with the package. I guess that's a plus considering your not paying extra for it! The DJ set me a email saying they have 8 years experience from doing weddings parties and night clubs. I'm curious to hear from brides who have or wil be using them.

Are you referring to the resort's new DJ or are you talking about the other DJ some other brides have been talking about...I think his name is dJ Julian?

I'm thinking about the DJ situation along with a lot of others on here.  I was just told that my reception would be 3 hours.  How are you using the DJ's 5 hours if the reception is only 3 hours long?  Will he be the sound guy at the ceremony for you?  Maybe some of you are paying for extra reception time?

Thanks!

Your pictures are gorgeous.  What a beautiful wedding.  I adore your dress and the orange flower in your hair.  You two make such a purrfect couple, so lovely.  Thank you for sharing your pictures.

Above is a link to our photo slideshow from our 1/15/11 wedding and TTD session. We hired Anel from Adventure Photographers and bought the unlimited package. She did an amazing job, and is truly a pleasure to work with. I am really pleased with how they turned out, and am so glad we decided to use her rather than hire an outside vendor and pay 5 times as much. Really recommend working with her!!!!

 

We also had DJ Doremixx who brought the balloons, cold fireworks, and masks to the reception party. It was an amazing time!

 

I will be selling my chair sashes (60) and table runners (8) if anyone is interested....please PM me. My new hubby is dying for me turn to our "wedding headquarters" back into an office!

You sent an email to the DJ?  He is pretty good at responding.  Did you want his email?

He told me 650 for 5 hours or less and 650 for the light up dance floor.  I am seeing if I can get a better deal on the dance floor, it just seems so expensive for a dance floor lol.  He is including all the party favors if I get the dance floor along with the package. I am still comtemplating on it, are you going to get the light up dance floor?

Let me know what he says about the light up dance floor - and of course please share your pics!!

It's all coming me together now, a little less confused:)

When is your wedding?

Do you know if that the one that is on Facebook?  His light up dance floor looks tiny...

 

Yes..Ana told us the same thing regarding the Cocktail Hour.  Such a great exchange!!    ffor

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
