I'm an African American bride who is looking for an awesome DJ. Im thinking it may be hard considering the type of music I'm looking to play for my guests of all races & ages. My interests would include...


Smooth Jazz

Hip Hop


Old skool

Steppers Music



Im a bride from Chicago & here in Chicago we believe in stepping its not a party or a celebration without this form of dance. I just need a pretty diverse DJ that I feel may be kinda difficult. If you have any experience or have hired an amazing DJ that played this type of music at your wedding, pls provide the name, cost, & experience of who this fine DJ you're referring to is. Thank you so very much in advance.


Pls help as this is a major component of this epic time...

hola Shlearae - have you considered compiling your own music list on an iPod - which you could plug into the resort sound system? it would certainly be cost efficient, and you'd have exactly what you want for music........


wishing you all the best with your plans, and that you + your guests have the time of your lives, dancing the night away!

Hi Shlearae!


We worked with a DJ through our resort; the resort's wedding coordinator had a playlist/spreadsheet for us to fill out for this DJ. We chose the entire list of songs we wanted played. We had a pretty diverse list, from country to techno to 80's to some 60's too - it was a wide variety!


The resort gave us a (huge) list of songs to choose from, and then we were able to specify other songs we wanted that weren't on the list. They went and found those songs for us.


So I'd suggest putting together a specific list of the "hard to find" or less-common songs that you you really want played at your wedding, and then asking the DJ's if they have those songs as you are weeding through them. You could also ask them what format they'd need if you could provide those songs to them (e.g. mp3, etc.).


I hope this idea helps you with your search & planning. Good luck!

I have considered doing both but quite honestly I really want a DJ as playing the whole song isn't always great when you want to PAR---TAY! lol. Any who its just really hard trying to plan a DW when they never really answer every question & I don't want to end up with a mediocre wedding reception. I haven't read on any forum of a bride who used the DJ @ Dreams Cancun. What if he's terrible OMG the stress of it all!!!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
