      Hi


      For our June 2012 wedding we hired the resort DJ ($300 for 3 hours) for our beach party.  I'm not sure if they rotate DJ's, but the one we had didn't really speak English.  Wasn't a big deal to me since I'm fluent in Spanish.
      I can't remember his name.  I took my own music on a CD and ipod and handed those to the DJ to play.  I have to admit, he wasn't very enthusiastic, looked tired, did not interact with guests.  Basically sat in his beach bar hut and played music, just that.

      I have heard good things about DJ Mannia (outside vendor), his price is around $800 I believe.

       

      Hope this helps.

        Hi there,

         

        I am getting married at the Grand Palladium Palace October 7th, 2012.  I just found out about this site yesterday from another destination bride!!  I just wanted to know how your weddings went at the Palace.  We have been contemplating a private dinner vs a semi-private.  Also, I wondered if the Palace provided a sound system or anything for the actually wedding ceremony? 

         

        Any answers would be much appreciated!!

         

        Thanks!!

          Dj mannia raised his prices :(  I think its $900 now. That's what he charged us, it might even be $950 right now. I hope he's worth the money because on top of his fee, we also have to pay a $180 fee to have them on the resort.
