I am getting married on Nov 8th, 2014 @ 11am at Azul Fives. I am expecting around 80+ guest (maybe close to 100). I've selected the "Always and Forever" wedding package. This package has minimal decorations and I am interested in adding my own touches. I've read a few responses suggesting to bring your own decorations with setup fee of $250. My biggest concern is traveling with the decorations and favors for guest. I do have a wedding planner who will be traveling with me to the resort. Should I have her bring these items? I just don't want to be stressed out over this when traveling.
We are planning to do the private event/reception following the wedding. I haven't yet decided the location as our wedding is taking place in the AM. My fiance and I are just really excited about being able to have so many family and friends attend our wedding. We both LOVE to party and would really like a fun filled reception. I hoped to add my own decorations to this as well. Does anyone have any opinions regarding the DJ? The cost is like $1500-$2000. Pretty steep for a DJ that I am not familiar with. I did read somewhere that you are able to send them music (happy about that). I've also heard from some past brides who used the DJ that they would have also been okay using the IPOD & Speaker setup.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
