    kya-

    Fernando is amazing and is well worth the money.  Kelley sets up everything for you.  Take inspiration photos.  I was so nervous not meeting him beforehand, but I promise you, he's worth it.  He spends about 2 1/2 hours (I have long hair) and I was so pleased with his work.  I think he works exclusively with Las Caletas and owns his own salon in Bucerias.  I havent heard any past brides compain about his hair/make-up.  If you can swing the price, he's worth it.

      Thanks Nessa! From everything I have read, I am definitely going to go with Fernando. I also have very long hair, so I expect it will take a long time also. I still have to figure out how I would like it to be done, it's a good thing I have a year :) I don't ever do too much with my hair so I'll have to start searching some sight or mags for ideas.

          Has anyone used a DJ outside of Kelley's list?  My fiance and I are really into dance music that is remixed with high energy, and not all DJs have that type of music.  We thought about doing some research on local Puerto Vallarta DJs that play at the local clubs but haven't started yet. 

          If anyone has gone with a different DJ that plays more "dance" music, could you direct me to their website or provide info?

          Thanks!

            Hello,

             

            We had the same issue. My soon to be brother in law is a house DJ and producer so we wanted someone that was more our taste. When is your wedding? We are bringing someone with us to do ours. I went out a few times when I was there. I will look up the name of the club we went to..the DJ was great.

                choeft201 - my wedding is just under 9 months from today - October 20, 2011.  If you find the name of the DJ that you liked, can you forward his name to me?  That would be tremendously helpful!!  Hopefully he had some samples I can listen to.

                 

                Lesley - I haven't been to LC (yet) so I can't comment on the DJs Kelley has, but it sounds like they will play whatever music you want, you can even give them a playlist of songs. The songs we like are sometimes hard to find or unique remixes to popular songs that the DJ may not necessarily have or be able to find through his music sources so I'm just doing some research to see what else is out there  :)   I have read great reviews from the people that have hired Kelley's DJs so I wouldn't worry there if that is the route you are taking!

                    Another option is to burn the mixes you like to CD or put on your IPOD and give to the DJ to play. I will try to find the name

                      I was wondering if any LC brides had done "boarding" passes for their guest to board the catamaran... I was thinking about doing that and putting them in the OOT Bags. Any thoughts about that??? Or where one could make something like that or find a template???
