So I wanted to write a review about PSAV, especially since I booked them without any prior knowledge of their work, due to a lack of reviews.  I was NOT at ALL disappointed! I really took a shot in the dark when booking them and am so glad I did. My resort preferred vendors were PSAV and JSAV. JSAV prices are absolutely outrageous. I cannot speak to their work personally, but I did read many reviews of brides who adored them. I tried booking outside companies, but no one was available for my date. I was basically stuck with PSAV, unable to afford JSAV (who I wanted). PSAV was remarkably reasonably priced, very quick to respond to all my emails and easy to communicate with (emails were always thorough and written with proper English). They provided me with a survey to let them know what kind of music I liked & what to avoid and provided an area for special requests (though I didn’t request anything in advance, and they still had available all my on-spot requests). I didn’t give them much info, just hoped for the best. They were perfect! They nailed the timing on our entrance song, first dance, cake-cutting, and last-song of the night. They played country (I told them I liked it) during dinner only, because it would have been difficult to dance to. They then transitioned into some oldies to get EVERYONE on the dance floor, and then slowly moved into some newer pop-ish songs, with my requested line dances (electric slide, chacha slide) thrown in. It flowed perfectly and they were so accommodating to all my requests. They were also probably the only people in the entire country of Mexico to properly pronounce my new last name (Thank you!!!!). They didn’t do anything fancy (no games/added décor/ special announcements) but they kept the party going, made me feel comfortable to continuously run up and make ridiculous requests, and were affordable/timely/easy to work with. Future brides please don’t think you need to spend thousands on a DJ, we were happy with PSAV and they were the cheapest of the bunch! We paid only $1200 (after taxes of $240), for 5 hours of full DJ services.

Awesome! so glad to hear this. We are going to be using PSAV, but only renting the audio equipment. What did they include for that price? Any lighting?

Thank you so much for this review! I've been hesitant to book PSAV because JSAV has gotten such good reviews... but I didn't want to pay for JSAV either.  I'll definitely go with PSAV now!  Did you get the lighted DJ booth or just the basic DJ package?

@Danielle1 & @perianjay our package was the most basic package that included full DJ services (actually, a total of 4 men were there with their equipment). No DJ booth or decor. Simply a small banquet table which the PSAV men sat behind and did their job. It was very simple, but it worked and I have zero complaints! I considered renting a dance floor/additional lights/DJ booth but am glad I didn't spend the $$. This set up was fine. When we had requests, we simply approached the table and then danced the night away in front of the speakers =)
