Yamille: I'm going to differ from Kelly. Ours were a godsend. Of course, I got married in August and Kelly got married in December. We had a breeze, but it wasn't constant and when it died down it was HOT. Are they critical? No, probably not, but I was happy to have them.

Happily married since 2008

    Oh Yamille, I didn't even think that you are getting married in a different month from me!

      Congrats to Robinbood and glavas on your recent weddings!
      Also, congrats egsarah on setting the date! :)

      Yamille, I'm having paper fans in case it's super hot. I found paper ones for under $1 at Luna Bazaar. I don't know if they're easier to pack than rafia fans...hmm.

      Meredith, did you get any info from Paradisus on the slideshow? I emailed Daniela w/ a bunch of questions on centerpieces, canpoy, spa, etc. but had forgotten about this part. I'll post info as soon as I hear from Daniela!

      So far, there are 40 ppl in our group! I think 10-15 more will be going :) I'm sad though because a number of ppl can't attend due to the recession and job insecurity

      A major need-to-do: contact swank re: dj/ipod (avoiding this b/c it's probably expensive)

      I am nervous about the make-up service at Paradisus -- I went through a few reviews and I don't think anyone at all has had their make-up done there. I think I can do my make-up given a few tips an artist, but I just don't want to! Maybe I'll do a trial at Paradisus and be my own back up just in case. What are you ladies doing?

        Hi Fanny,

        As far as the slideshow, Perla said to contact SWANK about a price. That scares me - I think it might be pretty expensive. Do any of you SWANK's contact info? I will let you know their quote.

            Thanks for the heads up on the fans. I'm still debating. I seriously keep buying more and more things. It's getting a little out of control and I kept trying to "keep it simple". Anywho... Good luck with the slideshow stuff and SWANK. I have been to weddings when they have that sort of thing and it's always really sweet. I hope they are not super expensive for ya.

            I will be doing my own makeup but want to get my hair done at the spa. I am at some point going to go to bloomies or sephora and have it done and buy makeup. I would like to mostly keep it natural but need to learn how to do my eyes so they have that "natural look". I usually look done up when I do my own eye make up. Ugh. I'll think about that later. I just can't deal not being in control of the makeup aspect of the day... and then if i hate it (!). I'll be sweaty and upset- I can see it now.

            Fanny- 40ppl already booked is awesome! I think we will end up having around 25. We had several that can't make it because of the economy. I am happy though becasue that is sort of the number that I was aiming for. Although I would love it if we had a few people that I wll really miss jump on board.

                Hi Everybody,

                DH and I are back from our honeymoon! I hope to post a full review this weekend (three days long- whoohoo!), but just know that the wedding was wonderful- everything we'd hoped for, including our good fortune of fabulous weather! All of our guests loved the resort and are still leaving us messages about how great it was.

                I do have to give a special shout out now to our dj, Carlos of Mannia- he was FABULOUS! He played great music, did gorgeous lighting for our beach dance floor, was super responsive, and was sooo nice on top of it all! I should get my pro pics by the end of the month (we are so excited, Elizabeth!), but in the meantime, here is a link to nonpropics, which a friend of mine took. The first bunch are of the rehearsal dinner at Yaxche restaurant in Playa del Carmen, but then it goes into the wedding at the Paradisus:

                    Your wedding photos are beautiful!!

                    FYI - I heard back from SWANK on the projector/screen - his quote was$750.00! Yikes. I think I am going to pass.
