    You're in great hands with Aris! She's such a sweetheart and always responds to emails within 48 hours, even though my wedding is 7 months away! When you meet her, she'll make you feel as if you've been friends forever. I'm sure she's on top of things and if you email her, she'll be sure to get back to you ASAP.

      We are all mostly for DJ Mannia, the resort recommends him and he has amazing reviews. Plus a friend of a friend had him for her wedding 2 years ago. Good Luck on your wedding and planning!

      How does it work for DJ Mania...do you already have costs?

        Trish, when are you in April? I'm April 5, 2014, but I've been so nervous planning for everything that I've asked my WC tons of questions via email and also went over a couple things face to face when I met with her back in July, like colors and stuff.

         

        I've read most WC's send you some sort of questionnaire to go over everything about 2 months before, but I would send sample pics of things you want, like colors, cake, centerpieces, etc so they can tell you what's possible and what may not be. Only because they love to charge "extra" for every little thing, I feel it helps to know budget-wise what you may be paying extra for.

         

        Our wedding is April 25th we were actually originally going to get married on april 5th but moved our date to later in the month since it worked out to be a bit cheaper for the actual trip.  I have emailed the coordinator a few times as well inquiring about colours and to try and get pics of centre pieces and flower bouquets etc.. since I want to know how to coordinate with things and whether I want to do fake flowers cause it seems that all they have to offer are roses and lilies.

            JCastro, I saw you're also from NY, where did you find your photographer? I don't mind the style of TP, but their package prices are outrageous! I really wanted someone who could take pictures of our stay out there, at least while we're with most of our friends and family. 

             

            I'm actually using Tamara's photographer. I also like TP style, but think that their prices are too much. She will be covering most of the week. You should reach out to her, here's her web site...

              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?

              So it's $1300 for everything with the hotel package or $700 without the MC, fireworks and lights. Those are the only packages the hotel offers. He has his own packages but it's for other hotels he doesn't have exclusivity for I think but it's not a huge difference.

                Yes read above ;) ... The $1300 includes DJ, MC, fireworks for first dance and strobe lights but this is the pricing from Aris, my WC.

                    You should ask and make sure it's him just in case, none of us want surprises on our wedding day lol
