maira sent me the contact info and website of the DJ they want me to use and he seems totally totally lame!!!! i dont want to use this guy, and his website really really sucks. compared to other cabo djs who have websites that i have seen.

although after much bitching about the poor service i was receiving from maira, all of a sudden she has been good about emailing me what i ask for within a day or so.

    Well, good news about Maira. She must've had a talking to! Bad news about the DJ, but it seems like you could tell them how totally lame he seems and you want other choices. They're their to make sure you completely happy. It just doesn't seem right to have to go through them for a lame DJ. Music is really important!

    so jose emailed a couple other djs and already Ricardo PatiĀ±o wrote back with a quote of $225 an hour (plus we'd have to pay the $150 to use a non-Westin DJ)...still cheaper than what the Westin wants to charge us at $280/hour for a DJ, even when you factor in the $150.

    one thing though -- how late did they tell you your reception could go? jose had mentioned to the dj something about the possibility of him staying until around 4 am and i called jose immediately and was like uh, no, the westin will shut us down way way earlier than that. i just cant remember how early they said. now he is flipping out and wants to cancel our wedding at the westin again because its "unacceptable for people to fly in from so far away for them to tell us we cant have music past 11" what did they tell you guys about how late you could have music?

      I'm in contact with them right now and think that this is where i'm also having my wedding reception (Almost done the contract with Juan- one of the coordinator). We were told 10:30 pm for shut off time but we asked for 11pm and it's ok with him. They also gave us the ok to use Ricardo P as our Dj.

        Yes, I know. My mom has been helping me out with the contract and they can never get it right! Very annoying! I like the resort though, very nice. Looking at the menu now, did you pick your reception meal yet?

        I think our wedding will be in October.

          yes, always check everything they send you back extremely carefully, and save every single email you exchange with them so if you get overcharged you can go back and say "actually, on XYZ date, we agreed on this price"

          we did recently just set our menu finally. if you PM me with your email address, I will send you what we chose.

          have you chosen a photographer yet?

            i know! same thing here! my fiance and his family are from mexico, so my FMIL gave them an earful about trying to rip off their own people haha our prices dropped a bunch after that. much of the prices i was quoted were less than what they quoted steph too. i will send you the financial docs i have via email as well.
