      I was wondering about this too before the wedding, and it ended up that our WC just planned it for us... thankfully!

      Here is ours - both planned and what really ended up happening (just so you know so you can plan some extra time where we fell behind)

      Noon - my hair appt
      1 PM - mother in law and bridesmaid hair appointment (started late)
      2 PM - makeup
      3 PM - getting ready and bridal portraits (oh, by the way, during this entire time, the guys were in the pool, at the pool bar, smoking cigars and basically just hanging out!) (also, we set aside hours for this, and it's a good thing.... i lost a bracelet and one point and that took some time to find)
      4 PM - guys start getting ready (can't find mother in law and best man)
      4:45 PM - leave for ceremony site (we were running late by this point, which cut into time for family portraits)
      5 PM - ceremony
      5:30 - end of ceremony, champagne toast, then family portraits (we had to make these quick to get to dinner, while we were getting photos, the other guests headed to the restaurant and got drinks. I'd budget more time for portraits if poss.)
      6 PM - reception dinner & toasts (we didn't specify an order for toasts, but they ended up going - best man, my friend, maid of honor, DH's friend, my dad, DH's dad)
      7 PM - cutting of the cake, followed by another dessert and mayan coffee (dessert drink)
      8:30 PM - poolside reception starts, we get announced, and first dance... then dance dance dance
      10:30 PM - poolside reception was over... and we were exhausted.

              Erica, I love your wedding logo... so pretty!

              We did have a DJ. We used the resort DJ, who was pretty good. To be honest, I never really saw him the entire time. He had already set up shop when we arrived at the reception. We had given our WC an ipod with some songs to him started, and so he already had that.

              Ooooh your wedding is in Puerto Aventuras! Gorgeous location. Will it be at a resort?

                    Thanks! I love it too. We are used it on STD's, invitations, keycard/tip holders, koozies, stadium cups, etc. I used ten4 Design Studio, it's located near my hometown and they have been great to work with!

                    That's nice you had a DJ right at your resort! I'll have to go check out your wedding review!

                    Congrats!!!

                      Their work is just gorgeous. I seriously wish I had been on this forum more BEFORE the wedding lol. Does your resort have an in-house DJ? If not, there is one that has gotten rave reviews from the girls on the Bahia Principe thread... DJ Bob. He's an indepedent DJ it sounds like but some of the girls have requested him and he's really awesome and it sounds like his fees were the same as the resorts fees.
