    It's my understanding that you cannot use outside vendors anymore for music.  We are going to visit in May and I plan on checking out the quality of the DJ's then.  Same with flowers, they provide a vendor for this too. 


    We have an outside photographer though, and have to pay $100 per person who comes to the property. 


    What is your date?

      Oh, I thought that only applied to weddings at the Grand?  I'll have to ask the WC about outside vendors.  Oh, that's awesome!  Have you ever been there before? 

      We have an outside photographer too......ours is Merrick Cousley.  Who are you using? 

      Our date is November 30, when is yours?  How many people do you have coming?

        I double checked with the WC you can have an outside vendor for music but you pay the extra fee to have them onsite.  ($100 vendor fee + $75 day pass each person).  I'm planning on checking the DJ(s) out while I'm there in May.

        We haven't been there before but our TA got us a great deal on a long weekend and I'll feel better if I go see it first!

        We are going to be using SunGold or their associates.  I haven't decided yet, but I really love their work!  The associates are cheaper and all their pictures come out beautifully, but Paula seems wonderful from SunGold, she's so nice!  

         

        Ours is May 24, 2013.  Our guest list is about 100.. we estimate at least 50.  We haven't even sent out the STD yet and people are already asking how to book!

          Oh okay, I wonder if it's worth it to get an outside DJ or just stick with the one resort DJ?  I haven't really seen many reviews of the resort DJ.  You'll have to report back when you go!

           

          I'm so jealous!  We went last May and loved it!  I had never been out of the country or to an all inclusive resort, so I was amazed when I saw all of the marble.  It's beautiful!

           

          I've heard good things about Sun Gold!

           

          We'll have around 50 too.  I was getting the same thing from my family!  Of course I was so excited that I started working on our STD's right when we got engaged, but I didn't think I'd have to rush and get them out that quick.  They were all about booking their trips right away!  It really surprised me because we thought maybe we'd have 25 people there.  I really wanted to have a private reception and I never thought we'd have enough people to have one....boy was I wrong haha.
