    dj is 300 per hr... so 900 for the 3hrs!

      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??

      we are thinking of adding a tequila tasting the night after the wedding and using the mariachi band then.. we figured it would be a nice touch... anyone have any thoughts?

          Hey- I think I am getting confused... hahaha..... when we can mix and match does they mean they we can ONLY offer one meat to all of them in the buffet (like we have a pre-set meal) .. i mean what if some people dont like chicken/meat etc? Sorry- I dont get what Ana wrote to me, so maybe you guys can explain :)

          Also- has anyone else booked with the $100 but NOT done the contract (I just got nervous seeing all of you talk about a contract)

            I'm not sure how the buffet is done. We have less than 40 guests so we'll be having the sit down dinner.

            I haven't signed a contract but we've been going back and forth on it to get the details down.

              Hey all :) Another thing I was thinking about... we were not originally going to do a site visit but it is my fiance's 30th bday, so why not make a mini-vaca out of it :) Any of you doing a site visit? I was wondering if you talked to them and got a good rate since you ARE having your wedding there and bringing so many guests?? Thanks for the help!! :)

And then I guess I'll worry about the DJ, like you I want to get a few things out of the way before committing to that
                  Elizabeth has been phenomenal to deal with!!! We booked her for wedding day pictures, and I am hoping to book her for TTD, funny thing it kinda helps you out...Elizabeth has to travel a fair bit to get to DRC, so she said unless she has another wedding following mine, wedding November 19th, leaving Mayan on the 28th, I will have to do the TTD the following morning. Which I guess is fine, but I would love to do it at sunrise, and the morning following the wedding I think I will be just in want to relax mode, so I am holding my breath that someone else books a wedding the following week - you unfortunately are just before But yes cant say enough good things about Elizabeth, she is super friendly, her daughters are totally on the ball, and she responds to emails and is super helpful!

                  Happy planning!

                      ha ha look at that math! yeah sorry about that, DJ is USD 300 per hour, you are quite right! We were hoping for a bit longer, so maybe 4 hours of either, maybe that is what was in my head - in any case my apologies for the confusion!
