    GREAT FIND AT MICHAELS- Ladies I just wanted to let you know I have found shimmer luggage tags, passport covers, memo pads w picsframe, and cosmetic bags.. for a great price.. Time is running out as they are on sale at 70% off and the tag should say SHIMMER FUN?? ( I got them in silver, gold, bronze, and brown metallic) you have to look through- dont ask the attendants they say they dont have them and they are there! I have gone to 4 stores and have almost 50 of each.. except for passport covers only got 22 for bridal party and parents. They were between .30 - .90 each.... They are really nice..

Just a really fun night!
      Can you tell me how much it ran you? I am interested in doing this! How many people did you have?

        I was also thinking of dong this instead of a rehearsal dinner. Do you mind me asking how much it was and how many people you had? Thanks so much!

            This is quite a tease. Please provide lots of details. The bad is just as important as the good. Thanks, can't wait to read the review

              Question for those of you who have already been, and did a symbolic ceremony (you got married legally at home before or after you went): did you still do a signing at your ceremony (like did it look legal)?

              I'm wondering whether guests will know that it isn't the real deal, and I'm also wondering if I should choose some music to play while the "papers are signed" since I think that normally you would do this.

                Does anyone know the cost for DJ Doremixx for the reception vs. sound system? I know it's on this thread somewhere but I'm having a hard time finding it!
                Is it 1200 for dj and 600 for sound system?

                Thanks,

                Cathy

                  The sound system is $180/hr (Speakers, Microphone, CD Player, Technician).
                  Doremixx is $300/hr.

                  I keep going back and forth on this one, too. I do have Doremixx reserved and I like the idea of having someone to kind of get the party started and keep it going. I am wondering if the "technician" that is included with the rental of the sound system does any kind of DJ-ing. Or, does he just stand there and make sure the ipod is running correctly?? Anyone out there that rented the sound system and just did their own music that can shed some light on this topic?
                  It would be nice to save a little money in this department.

                    I think I am going to buy this or something of the sort because I just can't see paying that much per hour to rent their sound system. Just another suggestion to you guys.

                      We are using Ivan from Doremixx he has been very responsive - sorry to mix the pot but with the DJ you also get extra lighting (we are doing it on the deck and wanted extra lighting anyway) you get 2 things of cold fireworks (great pictures of first dance, etc) plus props, cordless michrophone (I wanted this for speeches during dinner, etc.) plus props like glow sticks, massive baloons, etc. (this stuff is easy enough to pick up cheap at a Michaels etc, but again one less thing to worry about)

                      Happy planning!
