Megs- Do you mind sharing, or emailing, your song list?! I am torn as to what we should do....If the Jellyfish DJ had a song list, did he still play requestes
Venus909- We are having a welcome cocktail hour one night and a dinner the next at our resort, Majestic Elegance, both will be very informal. We are having both our ceremony and reception at jellyfish. We initally were thinking of staying at Dreams and then we would have had our ceremony at the resort and reception at Jellyfish. We would have qualified for a free ceremony at Dreams

I am currently set to have my ceremony at Melia and the reception at the Jellyfish, but have been considering doing both at the Jellyfish. Actually, I pretty much decided that I want to do both at the Jellyfish...but my one concern is that if I'm not doing the wedding at the resort, will the resort still offer "special wedding" treatment? (welcome dinner, room upgrades, etc...)
Part of the original package for the wedding was a welcome dinner.... does anyone know if it would still be possible to do one even if I no longer have my wedding ceremony at the resort?

After our ceremony, while we were taking pictures with our guests the DJ started playing some chill tropical/loungy music - I wanted more upbeat music so everyone could start partying so I handed him my iPod and told him which playlist to put on. From that point on he only played my music - I had him switch to the dance playlist after dinner.
Even though he only played from my iPod I would still have made the decision to go with him because I didn't have to worry about the music and the sound setup and lights were awesome. We didn't have a first dance, garter toss, bridal party so we didn't need a DJ to make any announcements so this was the way to go for us. If you want an interactive DJ and want to pay a little more then I'm sure DJ Mannia would be the way to go. Hope that helps
We tipped Mayte 20%, although I am not sure if and how it get distributed among the staff.
