        What was the price you were quoted for dj and mc? And is this without the 'fireworks'? Does anyone know if there is no mc, does that mean there is no mic at all? I'm trying to justify all the costs :s

        I was quoted 1300 for the full MC and DJ package for 3 hrs which supposedly includes the "cold fires" or "flares" or whatever the heck they're called and "robotic led lights", not sure what THOSE are... Maybe pillars? If you choose not to have a DJ and just hook up an iPod or something, they charge $400 to rent the sound system which includes a mic if I'm not mistaken.

          On the sheet for pricing it's $1300 with fireworks and MC plus other stuff or $700 with just the DJ and a wireless mic Yes he is the recommended one so no outside fees to worry about, I was so happy when I was told! He has a different price but when I compared it's just different packages offered from the hotel and the DJ, difference is not bad at all in my opinion. You are paying $300 more for fireworks and flashing devices as in comparison to his package for the wedding. The only thing I'm not happy about is the extra hour but it is what it is.  Did we all get the same pricing, please say yes lol lol

          Hmmm... I couldn't tell you, I haven't asked Aris about using him or his packages. Wait, is the hotel package $300 more for the fireworks than DJ Mannia charges? Or vice versa?

            I got my first "declined" RSVP today and in my head I was thinking "YESSSSS two less people!!" LOL, terrible I know, but the rising cost of this wedding is giving me nightmares. I hear you though, your ceremony's on the pier right? I remember BBPD telling me there was a limit for having it there.

                      Lol, same here. And both my family and his are Hispanics, Dominican and Peruvian, gotta deal with their procrastination on both sides. I'm worried about people deciding their whole family and all 4 kids are invited when I was clear on the invitations who is invited to attend the ceremony and reception. Little kids have no business attending a wedding. You wanna bring them along on your family vacay, that's your business but please be aware there is free daycare at the resort from 9am-midnight. :D FYI for those allowing children, don't remember if I shared this. Under 3 there is no charge, ages 4-11 are half-priced, as far as the wedding is concerned.
