We will then just dance barefoot in the sand for the reception. I just thought I should give you a heads up in terms of your first dance they have a strict no music, no dancing policy for the wine cellar so you will def have to do your first dance before you go to dinner during your cocktail hour or later on in the disco. Hope this helps. You can also have the wedding in the ballrooms. That is where my wedding was and it was so noice not to worry about rain! plus we had our cocktail hour outside the ballroom that is outside but under a cover

Do girls think it would be better to bring down my own make up for them to use or just use their stuff. I'm scared of getting a bad reaction on my wedding day they do great makeup---get Trinidad. before we left i went to sephora and bought my own foundation, bronzer and lipstick so I could touch up. Everything else I think you could use their makeup.

Hi Amy, I didn't get to hang it up---if you go to the back of the plane---there is a small overhead compartment that can fit only a wedding dress in it, ask if you can go in early to get that bin. That is what i did and i had no problems. The steaming at the hotel is great---i relied on it a lot! and it was perfect.
  6. Hi Ladies, I am planning on writing my review this weekend---I promise! I have just not had time yet but I didn't forget!!! Although not sure if I will have a lot of pics uploaded but will try to figure it out

I plan on changing into jeweled flats for the reception. What do you think of the the wedding shoes? sidenote: are you at pronovias in your picture? I got my wedding dress there and the inside looks like it

I went with the free package and sent my wedding coordinator the wedding form stating which bouquets and boutonnieres we wanted (based on the pamphlet), but after looking at your pictures, there seems to be MUCH MORE available than the ones shown on the pamphlet. Is this something that we can discuss with the wedding coordinator when we get there, or should we let her know in advance that we will probably want to change the flowers to more tropical-looking ones? Once you arrive at the hotel they are going to coordinate a time to meet with you and they are going to go through each thing one by one with you at that time. If you want, you can change it. You can also send an email so you can say you sent it before you arrived. Anabel was our coordinator and she was wonderful.

The photographers are expensive, but it depends on how important you think the pictures are overall. We took the plunge with spending a lot on a photographer but we talked about it for a while. To us, it was more important to have wonderful pictures.

If so do you have to pay extra? the centerpieces are usually $65 or more per centerpiece. That is why people bring their own, it is cheaper than the flower centerpieces.

The thing you stand under is included, no additional cost unless you have the free package. you might not want to buy too much because that is more things you have to get rid of after the wedding. playa del carmen is about 30 minutes away--so not too bad. if you are getting big items like tiki torches you should probably rent a van from the hotel.
  13. Just a quick note, we had a situation with the Spa at Dreams Tulum, Alejandro took my reservation via phone for me and my husband for the last night we were there for us to get our massages. Unfortunately he never put it into the computer and when we arrived, they didn't have our reservations and they had no availablity :-( Beware of who you speak to when you book your spa treatments.
  14. Okay Heidi's starfish is officially on its way to the next person in line It was fun having it!

Yes it sounds like December is the perfect month to get married!!! It was the best time, it was mostly us and our friends dancing at the reception but we had a wonderful time! I am so happy we did the wedding in Mexico and I am also glad we decided not to do an AHR because all the stress is gone
