Honestly!! Can you imagine all the money they make from all our weddings? The least they could do is be accomodating to the people that are bringing them a ton of business! If I had read all this before I booked, I would have seriously considered going with a different resort...ugh...I chose a DW to be less stressed, lol!

 

What about DJ Mannia...do we know if he's on the approved list?

 

Or has anyone used or heard anything about their "approved" in house DJ?

Cancun transfers or Best Day Transfers will be the cheapest as far as transfers from airport to resort.  Lily, I agree with you, if I found this site before I had everyone booked, I would've chose a different resort.  I have emailed the resort DJ and he hasn't responded to me, so frustrating.  I wish I didn't have such a big group so we just utilize all the free stuff.  It's insane that we're going to an all inclusive resort bringing them all more business and in the end they charge us for more for all the extras.  If they charge us for the extras then shouldn't we be allowed to use whomever we like.  Sorry for the venting but I am soooo annoyed at this point.

 

At least I found my dress over the weekend.

The DJ's email is visualsound2010@hotmail.com His name is DJ Mauricio Neri and you can look at his pics on Facebook at "Music for Your Eyes" (corny I know but he has a light up dance floor similar to DJ Mannia. From what I understand his pricing is $300/hr but I'm waiting to find out if that includes the dance floor. I'll keep you all posted.

DJ Doremixx was listed at $300 per hour as well...but my TA just spoke with the resort and they said Doremixx was charging $650 and  the new DJ is only charging $500 - I'm so confused....I wonder what the resort will be charging us for the new DJ.  Has anyone used him yet or heard anything about him?

I just sent an email to my WC cause I'm so frustrated.  I asked her if I will get to choose my own DJ or if they are gonna choose for me - seems like they are making it so I only have one option. 

 

Waiting to hear if DJ Mannia is an option - I doubt it.

 

Their house DJ is SO expensive..DJ Julian was only $650 for 5 hours.  Also..his light up dance floor is tiny.

 

So frustrated.

I am having a conference call with the resort, Ana specifically on Tuesday Feb 15th and will ask about the DJ situation. I'm not sure what's not working in the contract for them to be turning down so many vendors? Hopefully I will be able to get some clarification from her to make sense of all of this? Seems strange.

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
