Hello! We're considering using an Ipod for the ceremony/Reception or hiring a dj.  Does anyone have any input on this? 

If anyone used a DJ, did you use one provided by the resort, or did you use an outside DJ?  If an outside DJ was used, can you provide me with any suggestions?

Hola our MaromaBridetobe!

I have been to many weddings... well... hundreds! haha My advice to you would depend on how you answer this question. Is music important to you and to your idea of how your reception is going to happen. Are you picturing a big party with lots of dancing that you love to do? If so... the DJ is the way to go. If you are just a small party and music and dancing are not your top priority and you are imagining a quieter reception visiting family and enjoy your evening with lots of talking a visiting guests.... more relaxed and low  key. Then a iPod will do it!

If you are looking for a DJ and the big party. I would highly recommend DJ´s Doremixx (http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/products/dj-s-doremixx). I have shot many a wedding with Ivan who runs the company and he is 100% in touch with his guests and will keep your dance floor shakin. He has never failed to deliver in my experience and is fantastic at his job. For me... music is very important so I am very in touch with how the dance floor goes in the reception portion of a wedding. Plus it makes for great pictures for me! I have seen many a resort DJ flop and have no idea what they are doing. I have seen a few good ones. Doremixx is the best. I am sure they cost a bit of money... but this is your wedding and your day. Its is up to what you can  afford. 

Best of luck with all your plans!



ps - I don't get paid to endorse Ivan and his company. I just think they are one of the best!


Here is are some pics of Ivan at work at multiple weddings. I think it depicts on how the dance floor ends up full of energy, dancing and turns into a dream reception.

We used the resort DJ and we loved their service. We went with the "full" DJ, which included the DJ, a MC, and lights for the dance area. If you want people to dance, I highly recommend the full DJ service. The MC was really fun and got everyone energized and on the dance floor. He did a great job of making sure all the things we wanted to happen did so on schedule. The evening really flies by so it was great to have him taking care of what needed to happen and when. Nothing was overlooked, he played all the songs we wanted him to, and they even surprised us with a bubble machine blowing bubbles on our dance floor. I have absolutely no complaints about the resort DJ.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
