I'm getting married 2/13/11.  Like you guys, I heard some iffy reviews about the DJ services at MP, so I decided to go with the iPod dock, since they give you a tech to go along with it and the mic....AND you get to save a TON of money.  The DJ just wasn't worth it to me. 

 

We are also taking song requests from our guests.  I think I saw that on a post from a few months ago and thought it was a great idea!

This is my concern too.  I think the DJ prices are insane and would prefer to go with the ipod system, but I'm not sure that I want one of my guest to make introductions and annoucements.

That is my concern, too, but I wasn't willing to pay an extra thousand dollars for it.  I figured worst case scenario, we would have the best man or my father do it.  I actually wrote to my WC about it asking her what most people do for that situation, and as soon as I receive a response I'll post it.

We did the Ipod dock and speakers. It's more than just and Ipod dock, it was connected to a laptop and the DJ/technican running it could play music from his collection (we were short by 1 song), he just may not have everything you want.  He can make announcements for you if you want, our technican's english was very good.  However, we used our usher to make announcements, he was really excited for it and he is one of the few people who wants to see the wedding DVD to see his performance.  It worked out really well.  We asked friends for song suggestions and got a ton.  Just make sure you have separate labels for everything.  We had "wedding party entrance" "father daugher" "Mother son" "dinner music" "cake cutting song" "dancing music"  everything went really smoothly.  It also comes with lights.  The total was $465.  This was through JSAV. 

 

Also if you are getting the DVD from Palace resorts, the videographer used all the music we used without us requesting it, which was really cool.  Kind of a behind the scenes thing.  Worked out really well.

 

Let me know if you have any questions.

 Yes the speaker set comes with lighting too. There were 4 lights that he placed on trees bordering the reception.  These were separate from the other lighting I ordered.  If you look at my review there is a picture, the hanging lanterns were the extra and the lighting on the base tree is what he provided.  If you are having a reception where there are no trees, he has other ways of setting it up.  This is all included in the $465.

 

You can sort of see it in the attached picture (sorry I can't find a better one, I'm at work).  If you notice 2 of the trees are brighter than the middle one, that is his lighting on the trees.  The round lanterns were through Deco.

I think I am just going to have a friend I trust do it.  I went to a wedding in Cabo and the couple did an ipod.  the WC was going to announce everything but you could tell she was nervous so someone else stepped in.  Just don't let that person get to drunk and dedicate bump and grind to the brides' grandparents.  because that happened at my friends.  We all thought it was funny...her...not so much.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
