    Check this out..

     



    I have been looking for thermo insulated mugs to give out in guests' OOT bags.  Like item # IN-80/7142 from http://www.orientaltrading.com

     

    Unfortunately, I can't seem to find anywhere that will sell fewer than 144!!  Has anyone found them elsewhere in a smaller quantity?  At this point, I don't even care if they are personalized or not!

      Please let us know what you find out!!  I sent him an email and haven't heard back.  I wonder if that means we don't have to pay for their day pass..??

        The lighted dance floor and props are included with the package. I guess that's a plus considering your not paying extra for it! The DJ set me a email saying they have 8 years experience from doing weddings parties and night clubs. I'm curious to hear from brides who have or wil be using them.

          Brooke:

           

          Are you referring to the resort's new DJ or are you talking about the other DJ some other brides have been talking about...I think his name is dJ Julian?

                I'm thinking about the DJ situation along with a lot of others on here.  I was just told that my reception would be 3 hours.  How are you using the DJ's 5 hours if the reception is only 3 hours long?  Will he be the sound guy at the ceremony for you?  Maybe some of you are paying for extra reception time?

                Thanks!

                  Your pictures are gorgeous.  What a beautiful wedding.  I adore your dress and the orange flower in your hair.  You two make such a purrfect couple, so lovely.  Thank you for sharing your pictures.

                  Above is a link to our photo slideshow from our 1/15/11 wedding and TTD session. We hired Anel from Adventure Photographers and bought the unlimited package. She did an amazing job, and is truly a pleasure to work with. I am really pleased with how they turned out, and am so glad we decided to use her rather than hire an outside vendor and pay 5 times as much. Really recommend working with her!!!!

                   

                  We also had DJ Doremixx who brought the balloons, cold fireworks, and masks to the reception party. It was an amazing time!

                   

                  I will be selling my chair sashes (60) and table runners (8) if anyone is interested....please PM me. My new hubby is dying for me turn to our "wedding headquarters" back into an office!

                    You sent an email to the DJ?  He is pretty good at responding.  Did you want his email?

                    He told me 650 for 5 hours or less and 650 for the light up dance floor.  I am seeing if I can get a better deal on the dance floor, it just seems so expensive for a dance floor lol.  He is including all the party favors if I get the dance floor along with the package. I am still comtemplating on it, are you going to get the light up dance floor?

                    Let me know what he says about the light up dance floor - and of course please share your pics!!

                      I have been in communication with DJ Julian Molina and he said that he spoke with the coordinator today and the only extra fees I need to pay is the day pass which is around 55-60.  He is quoting 650 for 5 hours or less which is I think is a great deal.  He has a light up dance floor too which I have requested for and hopefully he will send me some photos.

                       

                      It's all coming me together now, a little less confused:)
