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.

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!!

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

When is your wedding?

Do you know if that the one that is on Facebook?  His light up dance floor looks tiny...

 

Yes..Ana told us the same thing regarding the Cocktail Hour.  Such a great exchange!!    ffor

    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
    • Getting married in 10/2020, anyone had a recent wedding here? Asking for some help
    • Hi, I know prices change year to year- Anyone have 2019 or possibly 2020 prices? 
    • My husband and I was married 18 years ago. My husband hates dressing up and truly I had no idea to that he feels embarrassed in dress attire. I told him the only way I would marry him was in tux jacket and pants shirt. Well he wore it but after wedding hyperventilating and nearly passed out. He felt totally humiliated and had horrible memories of our wedding. He has never allowed me to show our wedding photos to anyone and simply it ruined the wedding and has caused tremendous amount of issues over the years due to the fact I made him wear it. He now wants to redo the wedding to wash out our wedding memories and create new. Wants briadsmaid groomsmen everything. He wished he had simply went against my will wore something different. So wants to redo everything included everyone and what they wore but change what he wore. Me dressed in my original wedding dress. I so wish I had never posed him into a suit on our wedding day.its been 18 year nightmare.  He simply wishes to completely recreate a memory. My question is it okay to completely redo our wedding exactly the way it was except what he wears? This has been 18 years of hell he xant get over it. He cant even stand to look at photos and we have never watched the video. Thank you all Sarah 
    • Hi! How did everything turn out? I just booked mine there for next November and would love any tips you have!
