@hp520 No he was there at my wedding from beginning to end, but that DID happen to a friend of mine from this forum who also used Illeana, so I'm sure that is what she is talking about. Apparently he had an emergency that night and had to leave, but didn't tell anyone, including Illeana, and had his asst sub in for him.... I'm not sure if he's done that with other brides and Illeana... I really liked him, I mean, you can ask him to put something in the contract that it has to be him, and if his asst comes instead, it's a lower price? You only pay him a deposit and I gave Illeana the balance to pay him the day of the wedding.
Did you ask if she liked his asst? I think my friend said he was fine, but b/c it was a last minute sub, he didnt' know the wedding party names and mis-pronounced them... :/
I mentioned that I was thinking of booking DJ Fradel a couple of months ago to Illeana, but she said to hold off booking him because she said sometimes he doesn't show up and sends an assistant instead. Was this the case with you? He's the most affordable compared to the other DJs mentioned on here so I'm not sure if I'm totally bothered that an assistant would come instead.
@veryvalero #1-5 Thank you so much!
We DID do a symbolic ceremony- our friend who introduced us "married" us. We got legally married in the states.
"Where in the world are you" map was a seating chart. Each table of 6 was named after a country, and on the map were tags pinned to a country, and each tag had 6 names on them. My MOH also made little luggages with luggage tags that had country names on them to clarify. We wanted a little travel them since it was a DW.
