Mel, do you know if there is a microphone available during the ceremony and is there a charge? I am concerned that people wont be able to hear the ceremony

Has anyone used the Jellyfish DJ?  We are only having 30 or so people at our reception, and we think that DJ Mannia may be a little too much for our group.  We just want someone who will play music and provide a microphone, etc.  Any feedback would be great.  Thanks!

I am going to use the Jellyfish DJ, and I have talked to a few past brides about it - the reviews of him are fine, but most brides provided him either with an Ipod or a list of specific music, which is what I'm doing. Apparently if you send Mayte a list of songs, he will get them all and play them properly, so that sounds good to me! There is also one person in his crew who will do the announcements, so that's great! Not sure when you tell him what to say and when... I imagine you might tell Mayte the day before... I figure it will all work out, haha. DJ Mannia is just WAY too much money for me. And it also seems that if your party goes over time, Mayte doesn't charge extra for her DJ.

That's what I've heard too.  We are using the Jellyfish DJ and I think we will be doing CD's with the "important" songs (our first dance, mother/son, father/daughter, etc.)...Other than that, we aren't too picky about it...it'll be a great party regardless.

Has anybody heard from Mayte lately?  I emailed her the week before Christmas with a few questions and have not heard back.  I know it's the holidays and I am sure she has been busy, but I'm a little concerned.  We need her to get us a pre-invoice so we can get the deposit in!

Thanks so much!  That's kinda what I though was going on.  I haven't sent a second email with my questions, I'll give her a while longer.  Sometimes a little reassurance from people around here helps to calm the already super stressed nerves!  We are just under 6 months now and I don't want to have people give travel deposits until after I give the JF our deposit.  Trying to get the ball rolling!

Thanks for the feedback! I think we'll just use the Jellyfish DJ. DJ Mannia had offered to give us 2012 pricing for our 2013 wedding if we booked now...but 14 months still seems so far away!

I just received this informtion from Mayte regarding he sound/mics/ Jellyfish DJ- we are using for our Feb 3 wedding:

 

The sound and Dj will be there before you and you have available all this services from your guests arrive until you decided to finish your wedding, is not limit time. You have included, 2 micros, the sound for the beach and cocktail hour, sound reception, disco lights and laser ambiental and if you need a MC is included on the quote.

 

 

(this seems like a much btter deal than DJMannia)

I just love dealing with Mayte and the Jellyfish. Everything always seems too good to be true, but is :) It does sound like a great deal... it's $600 all together, right?

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
