  1. Hi ladies, Â I'm not sure if there is an existing thread on this topic...but I wasn't able to find it...so... Â I'm just wondering if anyone had any feedback on which buffet menus are good, and which ones to stay away from? I just received an e-mail from my WC with 14 buffet menu choices!!! Its soooo hard to choose...please help!
  2. Â OMG...I hope all of you and your guests' flights will not be affected by this!
  3. What is the name of your WC...just so the rest of us know who we DO NOT want! Â I'm sorry to hear about your experience so far. I think it would be very reasonable of you to request a new WC...are they giving you problems?
  4. I'm happy to report that our WC coordinator has been assigned to us and has already contacted us! This is a pleasant surprise because our date is March 12, 2011...and I was originally told that we wouldn't get an assigned WC until 3 months prior to that date.
  5. Scorpio30 - any luck with changing your reception location? Keep us posted on what happens and I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you!
  6. has anyone secured a DJ? Just wondering how much the cost was? Also if my friend is a DJ and is willing to play my wedding as a gift...does anyone know if they will supply equipment or does he have to bring his own?
  7. It really upsets me that people would say such things about such an awesome place! Cancun is where my FI and I first met, and where we will be married next year...and I couldn't care less about what anyone has to say about that! All the ladies that commented previously are right...people will always find something to say about everything...so trust the choice that you made and just enjoy!
  8. Yes they are given automatically. If you would like to apply it towards a wedding collection, you must specify that before having your contract drawn up. Just inform your contact in Miami! And as far as I know, you do still get them if you chose the complimentary package, but you CANNOT use them towards optional services. You must either use it towards a collection or the other things listed; spa, golf, room upgrade, tours, wine, private dinner. I know this because I originally wanted to go the complimentary package route and use the vacation dollars towards optional services, but was told that I could not. So I ended up choosing a package and applying it to that price instead. For me, this was the best way to go financially.
  9. My FI and I are interested in having a cigar rolling station and a tequila tasting station at our reception! Anyone know a company that can provide these services and any info on the matter?
  10. I am still 8 months away so I have not been assigned a WC yet. I'm sorry to hear about your dilema, I was also afraid of this because I know there are at least 2 other weddings taking place on the same day as mine. Have you expressed to your WC that you are unhappy with the gazebo and your reception location choices? I'm pretty sure they can change the gazebo because I am under the impression that they only do one wedding ceremony per time slot.
  11. Does anyone have an e-mail address for Deco Cancun? I have been on the website but cannot find a contact for them.
  12. Hey Lauren, I also debated between the complimentary and a collection package. In the end, I ended up going with the amethyst rose collection because it actually worked out to be cheaper than if I did the complimentary and paid for optional services because I applied my 1500 vacation dollars to my package. Originally the package would have cost $2375...but after the $1500, it went down to $875! In regards to choices, I'm pretty sure they have a standard bouquet and cake for each collection, so you may end up paying more if you want something customized. And lastly, I have seen pics of the amber package set up in a magazine...and the main colors are orange and brown. The color scheme is very pretty (has a fall feel), but it is quite orange. I don't think it will go well with your coral theme. I hope this helps!
  13. Are there cabs readily available at the airport for those who do not book their transfer ahead of time?
  14. Ladies booking under a Palace Resort membership: Have you ladies gotten any rates yet? I keep asking my contact in Miami for exact figures or quotes, and she has yet to get back to me. I just wanted to see if anyone else had gotten any solid rates.
