Can you please provide me the contact information of your photographer? Your pictures look amazing and I would love to use your photographer - if you don't mind me asking, do you have any cost information related to the photography? Thank you so much! Congratulations, good pick on December as your month to get married...its so nice getting away from the cold ...........I met Cecillia, as she was the head front-desk rep.......She seems very nice, she is very smart and quick...she is the one that upgraded our room to a honeymoon suite......So I am sure you'll have a good experience with her! My photos were dont by Cancun Wedding Photography. Website is: Wedding Photographer for Cancun, Riviera Maya You can email Chris, his email address is: chris@wedding-photography-cancun.com They are absolutely WONDERFUl to deal with. They are an American company so it is very easy to communicate and trust them. Chris can email you all the package info as well as the prices...You can mix and match sooo many things; they are very fair. I switched my 'book' that they offered for TONS of 5x7s and 8x10s. Good luck and let me know if you need anything else =)

I think this may be a stupid question but i figured i'd ask Thanks, Kristen Hey Kristen. For our wedding they brought out a new course after they saw everyone was done the one prior to......So we wouldnt have been able to squeeze in a dance between each menu item... BUT you can organize this with your WC and I am POSITIVE you can have a few longer breaks between each course!

To tell you the truth, there is sooo many more choices of cakes and flowers you can choose from then what you think. The WC didn't send me EVERYTHING over email.. when you get there there is way more to look at and decide... I think it's because they didn't want to scan everything, who knows?

We did end up getting it and it was beautiful" I dont see anything written in the wedding packages about getting a room upgrade? Can you tell me where they say that and how you got them to get you the honeymoon suite? i asked gaby about getting an upgraded room for having a wedding there and she said No you dont get one! im glad you did also- i might have missed this but what kind of cake did you have and was it yummy? thanks lana! Hmm I am not sure which package you got but on ours it says ROOM UPGRADE DURING HONEYMOON...it didnt say what kind of upgrade, so we fought for the honeymoon suite! Just dont even bother with your WC..talk to front desk when you get there or a few days before the wedding. My cake was vanilla and it was veeeeeeeeeery good! BUT the dessert option we got was Bella Alaska, and that was the biggest hit......it is amazing!!! So the cake is just the cherry on top.

You can ask your WC...but it's up to you, maybe you want to get your own so that way there isn't any surprises . Good luck, Im sure it will be beautiful regardless! =)

Exactly..no use in paying for a rehersal dinner when you can have a pretty intimate dinner at any of the restaurants on the resort right?

    Quote: Originally Posted by SIMBASIM Great review!! I am getting so excited reading. One question. How much extra did you pay for your cake? I love it! Like you said the cake is just for show really, I just want to see if it is worth the $$? The cake came out to be $180 on top of the free cake offer...Just make sure you go over the costs with your WC because Gaby didn't even tell me that would be an extra charge... I would even kinda go around it by saying you want to make little changes to the free cakes...and maybe that wouldn't be a charge?

I am not sure who did my hair and make up...one lady did both... She also did my moms hair and my flower girl........shes really good, but im sorry i forget her name.

I kind of like that idea, but I only have 4 Centerpieces. I have about 29 people so my table will be about as long as yours...How many Center pieces did you have? Also..With the Ultimate Wedding package,do we all get upgraded after the Wedding day? You have to be staying 7 nights correct? I am just wondering if this is something that they have to be "reminded" of, or if they just did it for you :-) And last, but not least...Did you guys do the Private dinner that was included in the package? and if so, how was that? Thank you so much for your review!! And again, you looked really beautiful :-) Thanks so much you guys, it truly was a wonderful day and I am excited for you all to experience it =) PhillyBride, We didnt really talk about the long table...Gaby automatically had it set up like that...She won't squeeze in that many people for a small table..I am sure you will get the same lenght of table if not longer? 4 Centerpieces will be plenty...she also adds candles at no charge and small glass vases with whatever flowers you want..It is very elegant and not tacky at all...I didn't even know she was going to do that until I came to our reception...They really put in the effort there, and you will be pleasantly surprised... She also put rose petals at no extra charge...(I did ask her to put rose petals though) To be upgraded, you deffinetly have to remind them... The hotel was completely overbooked when we were there, they actually sent out letters to see if people wanted to transfer to another hotel.. bizzarre. but my motherinlaw fought so hard for us to get upgraded anyways and we were in the honeymoon suite for the whole seven remaining days. (we were there for two weeks total) =)
