We just added 3 additional hours ($250/hour). He started at 3:45 in my and FI’s room for getting ready shots. I didn’t even know he was there. He was so professional and helpful and made us feel so comfortable! When we were all getting together for our photos (prior to the ceremony) he realized our videographer wasn’t there and called him to tell him he needed to come and where we would all be. He held my bouquet and shoes when needed-helped me climb the rocks. We had him stay until 9:00pm and made sure we did our cake cutting at 8:45 right before he left. He said he took about 2,000 pictures at the wedding and 1,000 at the TTD session. He said he can technically have everything ready before we left Cancun but thinks it would be worth our wait so he can work diligently on editing and touching up. We were happy to wait. TTD: MOST FUN WE’VE EVER HAD! Have pics from my mom and can’t wait to see pro pics. Absolutely recommend it for every DW.

By the way, i love your hair flower/feather- where did you get it from? My head piece is Erica Koessler style A-418. I first saw it at my dress store but it was $140 dollars. I found the exact same piece online at TJFormal.com for $70!! I don't think they carry it anymore.

I was just wondering if he comes with our package or not and when I asked Claudia for the DJ does that mean I am going to get Mannia or is that someone who people book outside of the resort as an extra as well? Juan Navarro is included in the package--we just upgraded our package with him. However, you have the ability to select a different photographer and pay them for their package choice and a $100 outside vendor fee. There are 2 dj's to choose from--Mannia and another--she will give you the option of which one. She does not allow you to book a DJ outside of the resort's options.

I stressed about decor a lot. I didn't want it looking "cheap". And I was THRILLED with what they put together. Everything was elegant and classy. the ceremony was elegantly decorated. DIY programs tucked into chair bows gazebo flowers DIY menu tucked into colored napkin, decorated with starfish sunset during reception created this amazing backdrop flowers from the gazebo were moved to the reception and placed on the ledge behind our table starfish and candle holders were from home. (regular candle will not stay lit). i got these on line for $2 a pop (google mini candle lanterns). you can also find in Michaels. me looking at the setup before the wedding candle holders again

You looked beautiful! don't worry AT ALL. even if you do the bare minimum from home, everything will be taken care of when you get there. you can make this as stress free as you want! I did all big planning approx 6 months in advance and then finished the details approx 1-2 months in advance. and then got there and selected flowers, napkins, chair bows, etc.

Because we didn't change/upgrade the cake, we asked how much it would be to upgrade the flavor to vanilla and strawberry. She said the change is minor they wouldn't charge us for it. It was delicious!!!!! The clubs are approx 3 blocks away. 5-7 minute walk. We went out every night! The entertainment staff organizes club nights too--no wait in line, all you can drink for approx $50 p/person. However, if you go onto the club strip you can find a promoter who you will need to bargain with and you can get $30-$35 for no open bar.

I just have one question, you mentioned the DJ, did you organise this through the WC or direct with the DJ himself?! Thanks again! We asked Cecilia for the options and told her our dilemma and she gave me either DJ Mannia or another one (can't remember) and their email addresses. I reached out to Mannia directly worked through everything and then contacted Cecilia to confirm we wanted him for 4 hours. Otherwise we worked directly with him for everything. Same with the photographer.

  14. rudebaga, although our ceremony was at 6, i walked by that gazebo every day and it didn't really matter what time of day it was but it was always windy. although it was windy, it was actually refreshing-by 6 it was a cooler breeze and it wasn't that windy to knock my veil or ruin my hair. i think an earlier ceremony might be really hot. we took pictures at 4 before our ceremony and we all thought we'd melt away. a few hours really made a difference.
