    Hello ladies, as most of you know I am getting married on June 24, 2012 and my WC is Ana.  I have had no direct contact with her (by choice) as my TA has been the contact ( she seems to respond extremely quickly to her).  I don't know if any of you gals are getting a DJ for the both the ceremony/reception but I contacted a local DJ and for 5 hours of music he charges $600 and an additional $150 for the ceremony (optional) .  Check out www.discomovilcancun.com.  I think this price is awesome considering that DRC is charging $800-900 for 5 hours not including the ceremony.  This local DJ will also provided 64 LED lighting to be used however we want, im thinking to light up the dance floor.   Also, i find it much cheaper to travel with ALL your decorations including bouquets rather than using the resorts which I think are a bit overpriced.  Ebay and etsy have some amazing artists.  I am also working on getting a fireworks display and have contacted several local vendors, I will keep you all advised.  Finally, I found an artist on ebay for my cake topper which is going to be my hubby and I in whatever pose we want, all he needs is a front and side pictures.  Super excited about this.  Yayyyyyy

      okay so a follow up to my previous post.  I was again contacted by Ricardo at discomovilcancun since I had asked him if it would be possible to use him for the ceremony, cocktail and reception for the $600 fee (5 hours) since i believe the receptions at DRC are only 3 hours???  He said this would certainly be fine however they all would need to be at the same location otherwise he would charge $100 for the change in location/set up fee. I still think he's prices are great compared to DRC's DJ's.  I read some GREAT reviews about his work and super excited to work with him.  its an initial deposition of $100 via paypal and he will then provide you with the contract.  He also does a site inspection with the WC prior to the wedding and bride's arrival to make scope out the location/site.  He also provides karaoke machines and lighted dance floor for the same price.  OMG so excited.

              This sounds great!  Much cheaper than the other guy DRC recommends. However, has the resort approved him and are they going to let the outside vendor fee fly by?

                Hey everyone!

                 

                Ok, so regarding the fireworks. I've contacted te vendor and they are in the process of contacting DRC to be added to the vendor list and find out the requirements for the resort, but the lady said it should be fine because there is nothing around the resort that would hinder a nice show. I've also asked that, if enough of us inquire, can she create a bridal package, something nice, beautiful and AFFORDABLE!  No one wants to pay a ton of $$$ for 3 minutes of boom.  So I'm waiting for a response and I'll let you all know what she says.

                    I'd also love to know what the outside vendor fee is and if anyone has had problems with DRC and outside vendors. We have an outside photographer and while i was able to get permission to use her in writing from Ana im nervous im going to have problems once we're actually there!!! Thanks girls!
