I really wanted to keep the live music but I didn't want to pay Doremixx for 4 hours ($1400!) I would have loved to have him but couldn't justify paying that much. So I hired an outside dj for $700 for 4 hours and will keep the live music as well. Now this vendor fee of $350 comes up and shocked me. Hopefully I can get away with saying he's a guest & feed him instead of paying that ridiculous amount.

Deisy said 1000$ for Doremixx for 4 hours...

    I have a seating question hopefully I can get some insight on. We will be doing one long table for our reception on the carnival terrace and most likely 20-25 people attending. I have decided on maracas as favors and escort cards/name cards and I'm not sure how to make this work. If the tables are broken up it would be easy to name/number tables but I'm not sure if they will be or if they'll be pushed together to form a single long table. Does anyone know what is the norm? I guess my other question is do I even need to do escort cards with this smaller number of people, and just put the maraca on the table at each seat with their name? Or will everyone be circling the table to find their seat so I would need the escort card...and if so how should I do it?

    Really? I was told $350/hour. I haven't dealt with Deisy yet. Does she have the same email as Pilar? Is she quicker to respond to emails?

    she said it's 350$ an hour or you can buy 4 hours for $1000. We are doing the four hours for $1000.

    I think hers is the same email, and she responds once every 2 weeks about-from what I heard, that seems faster then Pilar.

    I have Pilar and she responds to me within a few days. It may be taking longer for you since you are so far out. 

     

     

     

    If you look on the first page of this thread, Post #7, it shows the DJ options. It is $1000 for four hours. $350 per additional hour.

The cost is based an which meal package you go with. Sunset Charter with Snacks, Sunset Charter with Angus Hamburgers or Sunset Charter with Lobster or Steak.www.catamaya.com  


      Has anyone used any other catamaran companies for private tours?  I'm trying to do a cruise after my ceremony, preferably out of Puerto Morelos so we don't have to go far.  There will be 45-50 people.  Thanks!

        So, I've emailed Federico that we want to upgrade to full day coverage and spend about $800 on it (I listened to you and upped the price a little bit so we would get more pictures). Now he writes me back that the package is $999 for getting ready at the spa, getting ready in the room, bride and groom pictures yadayada and 100 pics on a CD and 80 pictures in the album but since we have the Divine Package we would get a $150 discount. So yeah, victim of inconsistency here. I emailed right back that I've heard from other brides that the discount was $300 and $150 for outside photography. Lets see what he responds. This is annoying. I can deal with a lot but I hate inconsistency. It doesn't go well with my OCD haha.

        Thanks! I will take a look. What a relief that 4 hours isn't $1400.
