  2. Hey Traci, I got married at 6pm and had my cocktail hour at x-lounge. Whenever our cocktial hour was over was when when the lounge opened. Hope this helps.

  3. Congrats Jessica, 1 thing you should know about Yamina is that although you have begun the planning process for your wedding many months prior to the actual day. She truly begins to finalize details about a month before. Before that emails will take forever to get a response. Shes very effective and efficient,when you get closer to the day and the day of you have no worries. But really there's no need to email her with every single thing that pops into your head because that will only lead to your personal frustration. She is great but also busy, with great attention to detail to everyo
  4. Hi Valerie, Congrats on your upcoming wedding. The one thing I can say to you about Excellence is its not a wedding mill, like some of the other resorts. They only have 2 weddings a day so if your dates aren't availible thats probably why. If your not totally against it consider a week day like thursday, for your wedding. Also Yamina is wonderful but not too quick on the email front. After getting married there last summer I understand why. Shes super busy and gives great attention to detail. She spent half the day getting things ready for my 6pm wedding and had a earlier wedding that day

Gracias ladies! We just had drinks, We took over half the lobby bar but there is enough seating and its air-conditioned. Then, I gave everyone the chance to eat where they wanted. I thought most people would want to try and find what they wanted to eat. But I found that most wanted to eat together so we were able to get two tables at spice. Getting a large enough table was usually harder, but now imp

Hey Traci, My DJ played for the reception only. Really everything happens so fast that you dont need all the extra time with the DJ. My wedding guest arrive ontime because they were at the resort, if you give the sound people your ipod with music for before the ceremony they will play it for you. I could see you needing someone to play music for a long duration of time prior to the wedding, if you plan on bein

I am torn between mariachi and just getting the DJ to do everything (ceremony, cocktail hour, reception). Thoughts? Hey Jennifer, I actually used both the mariachi and a DJ. I used Disco Movil Cancun and loved him. Its really up to you but the mariachi was festive and interactive people seemed to enjoy them. The Mariachi was good for pictures too. Just a thought! Lauren

Does anyone know of somewhere I can look for ideas on OOT bags? Thanks, Cat I bought my oot bags from Ebay and used Minimus and harmon discount for the fillings. My guest loved them.
  9. It's not so bad to splurge when you have 20 or so guest and you can afford it. Plus, my guest are still home raving about what they got in their OOt bags they will thank you for them in the end.

Yeah both my dad and my brother took all if my pictures, we have over 2000 of them from the whole week. We planned to have our rece
  11. DJ Info and Pic link I almost forgot I had the best DJ you could find. He was wonderful. I used Disco Movil Cancun I gave him 7 songs that I liked and he did an excellent job with playing the perfect music. If you want a recommendation he was by far the best ever. Initally I had contacted him to get info he responded within 24 hours with rates and his track listing. I booked him back in Feb for my July wedding. All he needed was a $100.00 deposit which was done via paypal and he emailed you a signed contract. As my wedding got closer and I became more overwhelmed he emailed me an
  12. I got married at 6pm Katrese its actually fine in the summer the sun has not set but will go down before 8pm. I dont know however about the sun set time in april. What I can say though is that its actually a really quiet time on the resort everyone is in their rooms preparing for dinner. So you really feel like you have privacy.
  13. Hello Ladies, I know its been along time since my last post. Im really sorry but i've been soo busy trying to set up my new house and fulfill my prior obligations. I truly plan to post a review ASAP. I did want to make comments on some previous post. Congrats to all the new Excellence Playa Mujeres Brides. Weimsrking- the music options are their cd, your own cd, or ipod plug in. I opted for the Ipod plug in so you can plan your music accordingly. As far as the food. overall I found the food to be good. Some rest. were better then others. The best meal I had over the course of my
