    Hey ladies! Sorry I haven't been around for a while. I swear my job really gets in the way of wedding planning

    I'm sorry everyone's having issues hearing back from Ana - I haven't even tried after reading your posts...I'm going to keep my fingers crossed that she's just super busy right now and things will calm down in a month or two.

    As for the IPod or DJ - I have an email from Ana saying the IPod is $180 per hour which includes the speakers and a technician. I've also read on some reviews that ladies are asking a family member or friend to man the ipod.

    For those of you considering an IPod (we're using one for the welcome dinner on Thursday night) - there's a super good article in the April 2010 issues of Brides Magazine which just hit the news stands this week :) I'm slightly OBSESSED with wedding magazines. The article is titled "Save $1,000 on your wedding, it's easy and fun" and starts on page 118. It goes through some common trouble spots and how to avoid them.

    We have a bigger crowd for the reception so we're going for the dj - BUT if I had a smaller crowd I'd save the money and do the ipod - I feel like it's becoming more and more common. Scan through some of the reviews in this forum of the other dreams locations and see if any of those ladies used the resort "technician" for the ipod also.

    Hope that helps! Happy Hump Day Everyone!!!

      Oh it does- I didnt see that? That would be AWESOME! If I knew someone would be in control, that would be KEY! But I cant get an email back either- oh, how fun :) haha

        Ladies,

        Is anyone paying the $180.00 for the sound system to use during the ceremony?

            I am! I've heard it's a must if you're doing a beach ceremony otherwise your guests won't be able to hear anything...
            And for clarification on that - it's a flat $180 for the ceremony (not per hour like it is for the reception)

                On my contract it says $198 for the ceremony! Has the price gone up recently? grrr...

                So if you do the iPod for the reception you don't need to rent the sound system?

                  Buenos dias chicas!

                  I have the Ultimate package and I am going to get the Mexican Trio but I'm not sure if I should have them play their set for the cocktail hour (day before wedding), ceremony, or reception.
                  I was thinking during the ceremony (we're doing the beach) because the cocktail hour is going to be socializing time and the reception we'd just do the iPod.

                  Thoughts??

                    That is a good idea to have the cocktail hour the day before the wedding. Great idea!

                      Is anyone getting married at the gazebo? It looks so beautiful on the DRC website....but little nervous with all the talk of how close it is to guests! I have heard that they are trying to block off areas when there is a wedding? Also I want to decorate it w/out spending tons of money. I was thinking of maybe looking into those round paper lanterns, on big on med and one small in my wedding colors and hanging them under the center (instead of flower pomanders). Any ideas or anyone who is thinking the same thing?
