    I think the Tech will do stuff like that, or I think I have read on posts that the WC and assistant stay with you during the reception...so they might be able to do it too!

    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!

      From the documents I have seen:

      DJ for 4 hours $1,495.00

      DJ for 2 Hours $995.00

      No DJ just Equipment for DJ $385.00

      I-Pod $220

       

      Don't know if this info is up to date for 2011, but I am guessing it is close.

        Thanks for all the awesome insight! I don't know what Brides did before these forums! You are awesome for coming back and helping us!

         

        Thanks a ton!

        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.

          Alison,

           

          Did your WC put you in touch with JSAV?  The only options they sent over to us were the packages they had listed in their "DJ Packages" spreadsheet that they sent with all of the other information.  Is this something completely separate?  Whatever you used sounds WAY better!  How did you go about getting that all set up?

           

          Thanks so much!

            JSAV is who my WC put me in touch with.  The spreadsheet with the prices should be JSAV.  I believe there is also 1 other audio company they work with.  Payment for JSAV all went through Palace resorts.

              Does anyone know if the 2010 menus are the same for 2011? I tried to ask my Miami coordinator and she said my coordinatior in Cancun will be in touch with me 90 days before. Urghhh I am working on my invites now and I want to put the food options on one of the response cards. Was anyone able to put their food options on? If not how did it work for the plated dinners?

               

              Thanks everyone!!!

                The first time I talked to my Miami coord she told me someone would be in contact with me within 90 days of my date.  I just sent an email back saying I didn't want to wait that long and wouldn't bug the on site contact much and she sent me on site coord's email.  I forget her name off the top of my head but she responded quickly and sent me a menu without me asking.  Maybe just ask Miami again??

                  I wanted to do the same thing.  But isnt it a buffet style type of deal with the Moon Palace?  If so, then how are going to provide food options?  I am only asking because I wanted to also do the same thing, but figured if it's buffet then it's kind of a eat what's there type of deal.

                    Plated menus can be served in the ballrooms, but you can only choose one menu. If you tell Miami that you want to reserve locations and need to be in contact with Cancun WC they will give you the information.

                      Yea, at Moon Palace if your reception is indoors you can have the plated dinners. I have an older menu, but I am not sure if it will be the same for 2011
