            We are trying to decide if we are going to hire a DJ or just use the IPOD set up so we can control what songs we dance to.
            Does anyone have an opinion or experience with either?
            Thanks!

              Go iPod all the way. Put the time in ahead to figure out your setlist and timing... Save the money (lots of it) and use it elsewhere.

              See if someone who will be there minds running the iPod or MCing the deal with a few simple introductions and it will be perfect.

              Just my 2 cents, but everyone at our wedding said they loved it, and we were able to splurge on other things like food, excursions, etc...

                Is anyone not spending the night with their FI the night before the wedding? We are pretty sure we will spend the night apart, but I am not sure where to send him to spend the night, any suggestions?? We are thinking he may stay with his parents, but that may make getting ready on the wedding day a challenge.

                Thanks,
                Jennifer

                  Did you and your guests have a hard time hearing the music? Our reception is at the white gazebo on the beach. I'm worried that the water will drown out the music. Thanks so much for your feedback on this!

                    We spent the night apart. After our rehearsal dinner, we watched the Eagles-Patriots game at the martini bar and then headed to Guacamayas... From there, the girls went back to our casita and had a lingerie shower for my wife. I hung out with the guys (talk of going to Cancun which we luckily decided against) and crashed in a single friends room.

                    It was a little bit of a hassle the next day to make sure to avoid eachother but it really was worth it. Just put someone in charge of making sure you're never in the same spot. We basically had her stay in the casita half of the resort and I stayed near the lobby. Only time we had to worry was when the girls went to the spa on wedding day, and that was easily handled by a couple of phone calls...

                    You might check with the resort. I feel like they were offering an extra room for the groom the night prior to the wedding at one point. Can't say for sure, but they can probably figure out a way to accomodate you if need be...

                    Good luck. It will be an amazing time either way!

                      We had no problem hearing the music at all, BUT we were at Tucanes... I still don't think it would be a problem as long as you use their speaker set-up, etc...

                      I would be hesitant to try your own speakers or set-up, but otherwise wouldn't worry about it.
