    There was 37 people at our reception, the drink service was awesome...very fast...they would make you anything and also had bottles of champagne...and ALOT was drank :)  There were 2 bartenders and 3 waiters for the dinner and they stuck around for the dance.  I think we left sometime just after 10ish.  We had our own music - iPod - for the dinner and then the DJ for the dance and he was AWESOME!!!  I am just working on my review and hope to have it up soon!!!  If you have anymore question just ask!!!

    Oh wow sounds like you had the time of your life!! I think we will most likely end up with 30-40 guests but it is hard to say at this point. I think we will most likely bring an ipod and choose our own music. What DJ did you have? How long did you have him for? Was he a DJ at the resort? Or did you have to get a resort pass for him? Which package did you go with? What were you dinner choices? Sorry for the question overload I have many.. Can't wait to read your review! Thanks for your help!!

      We had an amazing time!!!  We had a DJ from the resort.  That is the one detail I never really asked Pilar though was which one.  I am assuming DJ Dorremix as that is what most other people have had.  Regardless he was great.  We had him for 2 hours, our guests tried to pay him more to keep going but he would only play one more song as he is $350 an hour and my guests weren't going to pay him very much...hahaha...even the waiters and bartenders were yelling at him to keep playing...hahaha.  We had the Devine Package, for dinner we had the caprese salad, Ricotta cheese and Spinach Raviolis soup, our 2 mains were Chicken stuffed with Spinach and Mushrooms and Beef Fillet & Shrimp and our desert was chocolate souffle with Baileys.  The whole meal was amazing!!!  I don't mind answering any questions...if I can help take a load off the wedding planners with helping answering questions it is the least I can do for them :)

        Everything was VERY good.  The chocolate souffle was AMAZING.  With the entrees there were a couple carrots and a little bit of potatoes with it and the beef fillet I think also had some carrots and potatoes as well.  I was full after eating the whole meal :)

          Did you rent a sound system while you plaid your music from your Ipod? If so what sounds system did you go with? I understand there is one for $150 and another for $300. If anyone else has rented to sound equipment were you please with it? Any recommendations?

          Thanks!

            The DJ just used his sounds system to play our music for the Dinner and we never had to pay anything extra for it!!!
