Are disco lights worth it? If so, what have you picked and why? I'm trying to work out my budgets and keep getting hit with unforeseen expenses!

 

Thanks so much

 

Xx

I Paid $150 for 4 hours of the ipod dock + $35 for an extra speaker and $160 for someone to run the ipod.  I did rent extra lighting and I think it was worth it. $150 for extra lighting which included my under the table lights, and light trees Here is a picture of the light trees

I used the ipod dock for 4 hours with one speaker and it was $210.  Our reception was from 6-10 as well as our ceremony was at 4 and our cocktail was at 5.  Worked perfectly! :)
Thanks Shan - where did you get this price? My official BP wedding booklet has it at $385 for 2 hours? We gets married in May and are already at 108 room nights, with more still to book. I really would like to see something back from Palace resorts as we are bringing a whole lot of business to them! I know you had a similar number - were they open to negotiation?! Ta x

Hi Kristie Yes I see it - is that all Zuniga lighting? That's similar to what I want, and I would also like to have a piñata. My FI really likes the look of tree lanterns but we're just seeing our budget stretch! My questions are: Do you have to have pink and blue lights or is that a choice? Did you hire a dance floor or did you just use what is there? Was the iPod hired from JSAV? How do you get their prices and do we have to pay a vendor fee on top? Sorry for all the questions!! I really do appreciate the help.

I booked my ipod through PSAV for my 2012 wedding...from what I've heard I'm not sure that they are still a prefered vendor of Palace resorts- so you may need to consider Kristy's prices that she posted for the ipod hookup and tech.  I didn't really try negotiating with them- I thought $200 was resonable in comparison to the $1000 for a dj! :)

 

Sounds like you will have a large party for your wedding- congrats!! We had 41 people but it was a great number for us!

For those of you considering the ipod dock, just fyi discomovil is less than $600 for four hours of DJ service. I will be using them and purchasing a day pass (not telling the resort I have an outside DJ until the day of . . . taking my chances).

Hi Yossi,

 

-To be honest when i booked the light tree i thought it was going to be white lights, but when I saw them I quite liked the ambiance it provided. I rented the lighting from JSAV so you could ask them about the colors. The only lightening from Zuniga was the string of white balls that were crossed over our table (SO HAPPY I rented these- loved how they made the space look- DO it)

-We did not rent a dance floor, but they aimed the tree lights at the "dance area" so it defined the space and worked well. I originally wanted a dancefloor but in hindsite glad I didnt waste the money.

-Yes Ipod and Speakers were from JSAV, They have pre priced packages, but I just emailed with what i wanted and they gave me a quote. Here is the email address Alejandro Marrufo <alejandrom@jsav.com> No you do not have to pay a vendor fee for JSAV as they are part of Palace resorts.

 

Remember- get the quotes and then ask for a better price. I unfortunately learned this half way through the process. You can negotiate the prices.

 

The Pinata was from Zuniga- they quoted me $250 and I told them i would only pay $100 which they agreed to, BUT it was suypposed to be a yellow pinata, so I didnt get what I wanted on that one. Honestly it was blast- everyone loved the idea. (you have you bring your own pinata fillings)

 

Let me know if you have any further questions!

:)

One more question and I promise to leave you ladies alone for a while :D I have some guests who are trying to keep their costs down by staying off site...I have advised of the 80/20 rule so they are waiting to see how many guests we get booking before they commit. My question for you guys is this: Did any past/are any future brides have off site guests and if so, how much does it cost to have them at the wedding. Obviously there is the guest past fee (I believe that currently stands at around $98), is there a further fee for them to eat at the private reception etc. Am I overlooking anything that some past brides can advise on? Thanks again x

Did anyone bring a cute topper for the wedding cake? I think the cake is beautiful as is, but you see the cutest toppers at Party City, etc...Just curious if anyone brought their own down?

    • I and my partner are going to get married on August 12th. We met each other through a lesbian dating website. Both of us want that day to be a memorable day. We are in confused on which dress to wear for the wedding ceremony. Any suggestion on lesbian wedding dress? I prefer white, whereas my partner prefers of-white. Which one do you think will look good? Should we go for same dress or different one? Share your thoughts.
