That's ok.. you can't please everyone. My challenge has been trying to incorporate music for the 'older crowd' haha.. Most of my friends and I are 30 or under and have different taste in music than my parents/aunts uncles etc.

 

Should be fun.. haha

I keep thinking about this and it stresses me out! Most of our guests are also late 20's early 30's but I want our parents and the older crowd to feel included too without excluding the young people and vice versa. So tough.

Don't stress! The DJ generally knows what to play just pick a few you'd like to hear to let him/her know what style you're into @@TinkerSofi

I can come up with a playlist no problem but I always worry people will get bored or something haha. If I got paid to worry I'd be a millionaire by now. 

 

It's just a big price difference between hiring a DJ and the sound system so we're going with a sound system :)

@@TinkerSofi We are in the same boat. We are paying for the sound system, but depending on our own playlists. I've had this struggle of thinking that the music isn't going to please everyone.. It worries me a lot! I think i'd also be a millionare if I were paid to worry haha

Why don't you ask a couple of your guests to write down 3-5 songs they would like to hear? @@TinkerSofi @

I definitely plan to take some requests.. not too many though. I know if my parents had their way they would want a lot of older music played, but the majority of my guests are younger

it's a good idea to ask people a song that they would like, especially those that are older maybe. Although when I went to my friend's wedding she had all new music and the groom's dad did not leave the dance floor. That guy is just awesome. So you never know, people might surprise us I guess ahah.

@@TinkerSofi I totally agree haha. I know my parents are going to have fun regardless because they are really young at heart. I'm sure they will be up and dancing anyway!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
