Just a thought...
I don't see why not. We didn't hire a DJ, just made our own cd's for them to play. I don't know if it was the captain or another crew member, but someone got on the mic to announce the fire dancers and also did some dj stuff like play the music they thought the crowd wanted to hear (for free). It was fun and everyone liked it. Ask Nicole to be sure but I bet you can have whatever you want. That's the beaty of the place!

It was our cruise director from the boat that played the songs from our Ipod for the dance - he sort of took over, played some of our music and some of his music, and did the announcements for the dance/fire dancers/etc. We didn't hire a DJ either - we ended up giving him an extra tip at the end of the night b/c he did an awesome job - and we hadn't paid for a DJ...

I don't think so - you could always ask Nicole/Kelly if you can cancel the DJ and see if you can just do the Ipod thing...see what they say. You are still 6 months away - you're entitled to change your mind!!!

Yay!!! That is awesome!smile159.gif

I was actually thinking that would still cost the DJ fee (around $500), but instead of bringing in someone that I dont know anything about, this one Cruise Director or whatever his title was, was really great!

Thanks, I will ask Nicole, and get back to everyone...Yari, you can change things for a while still, I think. Nicole told me she didnt even need to know my guest count until 30 days before!

Hey girls. I'm back. Whew! What a whirlwind.

 

I'll chime in about the DJ/MC.

 

For us, I gave my ipod to Nicole. She would occasionally run over and switch songs. Like for our first dance, she announced us and cued up the song and then we just the ipod randomly rotate through songs. Surprisingly, some of our people that I considered "dancers" didn't dance much. They all just hung out and talked. We had maybe like 6-7 staple dancers. I would occasionally run over and switch songs if we wanted something else. It really wasn't that big of a deal. There is a new cruise director and I never saw him anywhere other than the boat. I'm not sure if he does the "DJ" role anymore- at least he didn't for us. That wasn't a big deal for us though.

 

I will do a site review soon! I have so much to try to remember. The wedding was over a week ago and so much happened during the trip I'm trying to remember it all. All I can say was that I totally didn't worry about a thing- minor things went wrong, but the guests still left saying it was the most beautiful wedding they have been to. They probably didn't even notice the error.

Congrats Rachel! I can't wait to hear all the details and see your pictures! I still have 7 more months to wait!

 

I do have a question for you LC brides...could you tell me if there is a water taxi that will take you to LC? My fiance and his groomsmen want to come over before the boat but not for the whole day and we want to be able to bring the photographer over with them as we do not need him for the whole day as well! I emailed Nicole about this last week and still have not heard back from her as I am sure she is super busy! Would you know the price as well if they have one?

 

Thanks so much!

I know that sometimes vendors come and go in a smaller boat (not sure what it's called, maybe water taxi is a good word). I don't know if they'll let your guy come over it in though - but Nicole would be able to tell you that. But like, that's how my hair stylist got over - she came over around 2pm I think on a boat like that.

    • 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
