      Hi Ladies!!! I am using the resort photographer but going with the highest package they have because I want more photos and albums. However, my package includes 50 photos. Since I am doing a separate photo package, can I put the 50 photos towards the rehearsal dinner. I saw brides did this. They had the photographer come the night of the dinner as well to take pics. What do you all think?

          The 20 options that Ana sent me - she says are $90 a piece.. and some are okay...but I am not in love with them.

          Wanted to see what you guys are doing :)

            I actually really liked the pool area so I hope it is available. I know it will be great. Just a road block. Time to move on! :)

              I do not know the name of the DJ. There was not dance floor lighting and only a couple of lights on a pole. Three guys sat there talking to each other. I am sorry I did not pay more attention to the name. My advice is to ask more questions on which company it is.
              Sorry Ivan, I was not pointing fingers, I just want other Brides to know what happened to us.

                We have to pay for outdoor lanterns don't we?? From The pics I have seen, it seems very dark on the pool deck and there are just a few spotlights.

                  I imagine that Ana must have other DJs she uses outside of these ones as well if you think about it, since Doremixx and Mannia don't work exlusively for DRC (they are booked all over Cancun and the RM). I wonder if you just get technicians, or someone low level, unless you specifically request Doremixx or Mannia? Both have gotten such fantastic reviews it's hard to believe that they could be behind any of the bad DJ reviews I have seen from DRC.

                  (And obviously DJ Doremixx wasn't there that night - thanks for letting us know Ivan!)

                    I just need to vent for a minute too. Ana said the pool deck isn't available for our reception. I don't want it on the beach. I'm just kind of bummed because I feel like maybe if she had gotten back to me over a month ago when I first emailed her we could have gotten the reception where we wanted it, maybe not though. I just can't see paying all this money and then not having the big things the way you want. I can see some small things maybe not going so smoothly but the reception location is a big deal to me. I emailed her to see what other options besides the beach were available. Now just waiting to hear.
                    Ohh that stinks I'm sorry. I've been told that to be fair to everyone getting married that day, the bride and groom who booked first get first choice for location - it still stinks but at least you know they're being fair and it's not just Ana taking too long to get back to you.
                    Your reception is going to be amazing no matter where you have it :) The whole resort is beautiful and I'm sure she'll find you a perfect location!!!!
