@hapykat @Giocivs88 - We are the ones doing the fire and percussion show! It's $1260 for 45 minutes. We are also hiring a DJ - using the resorts preferred vendor DJ Mannia. Jessica recommended the fire show after cocktail hour or after dinner, so that we could go straight into dancing for the rest of the night. We haven't decided when we are having it yet.

@giocvs88 we aren't getting a dj after all. I think the fire show will have more impact. Assuming it starts after dinner the show would finish around 9:45 and the dj would only be hired til 11 so for an hour of mixing that seems a bit nuts to us. We will make playlists for the dinner time and our bride and groom dance etc

@JenniferH114 that sounds really nice!!!! If you don't mind me asking how much does the dj charge? And do we still have to pay the 500 dollars fee for an outside vendor for dj mannia?
@hapykat that works!!!

@Giocivs88 - The DJ is $1300 for four hours and that includes during dinner time. No, you do not pay an outside vendor fee for any of the "preferred" vendors that the resort works with. DJ Mannia is a preferred vendor. We hired an outside photographer, and we will have to pay the extra $500 for that.

 

If you ask Jessica, she should send you a price sheet for extras such as the DJ, fire show, other live musicians, etc.

@hapykat - I totally understand your perspective when it comes to the DJ and how much it costs. For us, at the end of the day, we just don't want to have to worry about anything. Also, the DJ will play music during dinner and provide added ambiance with lighting. When we met with Jessica she told us the day would roughly go as follows:

 

5pm - Ceremony (about 15-20 minutes)

5:20 - Break for some photos

5:45 - 6:45pm - Cocktail hour

6:45pm - 7:30pm - Fire show

7:30 - 9pm - Dinner

9 - 11pm - Dancing

 

Again, we could change the fire show to after dinner but I think it might flow better for us to go before. I feel like with that schedule we are still getting some good use out of the DJ, including during dinner.

We are not having a DJ either, unfortunately our ceremony won't start till 6:30, so everything got pushed back.  We just plan to go to the disco with everyone after dinner.  Since its a small group we figured that way, guests won't feel obligated to stay and we won't feel like we had to shell out money for a DJ that didn't get used to much.
