  1. Hi Everyone! I just received my quote from Aurora for my flower requests and she is quoting me $2500+ for canopy decor, 3 centerpieces and flower petals along both sides of aisle??!!! The flowers I requested are not rare,,,pink roses and white lithiansus??! I've contacted local florists with the same request to see if there is a difference in price... Anyone know if this is the going rate at the resort??

Both pools are lit with changing color lights which are pretty... so that will help the ambiance for you. THAT is just NUTS! I thought there were closing hours fot the pool...like 6pm or something like every other re

We would have had plenty of room for a dance floor if we wanted it (the concrete between the DJ booth and the tables were fine for us - it kind of created a dance floor area). Hi! I saw your pics and you set up was beautiful! I was just wondering if you had any other views of your recepetion area. From the pics you posted, we aren't able to see everything. (DJ, dance area etc...) I am planning on having a similar set up but I want

I spoke to them again today, and was given the ok by 4 different people, the only thing they said was they would have to check it at the airport to make sure it wasn't too puffy to fit in the overhead compartment. They said they didn't have the place to hang it
  5. Hi everyone I just phoned west jet and I was told that I am NOT allowed to bring my dress on as carry-on, instead it must be placed in my checked luggage! It was to my understanding that on all westjet flights I could. The man on the phone kept on saying "no carry on baggage at all...he said any travel to the US prohibits carry on baggage even though I kept telling him I am flying direct to mexico, not stopping in the US but he still said no?! I think I will call back tomorrow and ask to speak to the person responsible because there is no way I am risking losing my dress! That is the

I don't think 6pm is too late but you have to take into consideration that you probably won't have any sun left for pics after the ceremony. Also, the reception only last 3 hours or so at the resort

What time were you hoping to start the reception? I believe most receptions start around 6-6:30pm (regardless of the time of ceremony) and end 4 hours later. Therefore receptions must end at 10-10:30pm.(for outdoor receptions) Aurora agreed to extend my reception until 11pm Don't forget the cocktail hour, that could be from 5:30-6:30pm....if you have the ceremony at 4pm,

If you look at the 2010 Wedding guide, it clearly states that the resort can hold up to weddings per day....unfortunately! I spoke to Aurora and she states that they still do up to 3 weddings per day also... I don't like the fact of that many weddings in one day, but apparently the Brides that had to share their day said that their weddings went as planned... Good luck! <a href="http://www.TickerFactory.com/">

About 5 minutes before, they take a few photos of the groom. They photograph the ceremony and then group photos afterwards. They will then take a few more photos of the bride and groom on the beach. If you want photos taken around the resort you have to - bring your own photographer or buy extra time wit

What do we do about a rehearsal dinner? Do we have to pay per person as we do for the wedding reception or can we just go with the group to dinner after having a rehearsal? Hi! From what I have read on the site before, you can have a rehearsal the day before the wedding but you MUST arrange it prior to your arrival with your WC. Always keep your e-mails fromt the WC and print them out as pro
