Honestly!! Can you imagine all the money they make from all our weddings? The least they could do is be accomodating to the people that are bringing them a ton of business! If I had read all this before I booked, I would have seriously considered going with a different resort...ugh...I chose a DW to be less stressed, lol!

 

What about DJ Mannia...do we know if he's on the approved list?

 

Or has anyone used or heard anything about their "approved" in house DJ?

Cancun transfers or Best Day Transfers will be the cheapest as far as transfers from airport to resort.  Lily, I agree with you, if I found this site before I had everyone booked, I would've chose a different resort.  I have emailed the resort DJ and he hasn't responded to me, so frustrating.  I wish I didn't have such a big group so we just utilize all the free stuff.  It's insane that we're going to an all inclusive resort bringing them all more business and in the end they charge us for more for all the extras.  If they charge us for the extras then shouldn't we be allowed to use whomever we like.  Sorry for the venting but I am soooo annoyed at this point.

 

At least I found my dress over the weekend.

The DJ's email is visualsound2010@hotmail.com His name is DJ Mauricio Neri and you can look at his pics on Facebook at "Music for Your Eyes" (corny I know but he has a light up dance floor similar to DJ Mannia. From what I understand his pricing is $300/hr but I'm waiting to find out if that includes the dance floor. I'll keep you all posted.

DJ Doremixx was listed at $300 per hour as well...but my TA just spoke with the resort and they said Doremixx was charging $650 and  the new DJ is only charging $500 - I'm so confused....I wonder what the resort will be charging us for the new DJ.  Has anyone used him yet or heard anything about him?

I just sent an email to my WC cause I'm so frustrated.  I asked her if I will get to choose my own DJ or if they are gonna choose for me - seems like they are making it so I only have one option. 

 

Waiting to hear if DJ Mannia is an option - I doubt it.

 

Their house DJ is SO expensive..DJ Julian was only $650 for 5 hours.  Also..his light up dance floor is tiny.

 

So frustrated.

I am having a conference call with the resort, Ana specifically on Tuesday Feb 15th and will ask about the DJ situation. I'm not sure what's not working in the contract for them to be turning down so many vendors? Hopefully I will be able to get some clarification from her to make sense of all of this? Seems strange.

    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
