  1. Demetrios Sposabella 4233 Wedding Dress in Ivory, Size 8. This dress was worn at my wedding for a total of 6 hours. The only alterations done to the dress was hemming the bottom. I am 5'3" and wore flats at my wedding.. So definitely a dress for a short person! Also, the bustle buttons were added to it as well. It is absolutely beautiful and I don't want to get rid of it, however, I will obviously never wear it again, so find no reason to keep it! I did get it dry cleaned, so it looks like new! Let me know if any of you are interested or if you want me to send you any pics of me in the dress!

  5. When I was there, I just had an oceanview room. All of the Junior Suites are the same size, the difference being just the view... however, we were rarely in our rooms, except to sleep and shower, we didn't feel the need to spend money on the higher up rooms. The wedding packages say you will get an upgrade if available, but if the resort is full and/or there aren't any rooms available in the suite class above the one you have, then you won't get one.. I was happy with the room we had. We used the 48 hour check-in to pick our room, however when we logged on, there was only one 3rd floor oceanview room to choose (our priority was 3rd floor), so you don't get much choice if the resort is booked full! Also, if you want a quieter room, I would choose one that isn't by the pool, cause people are loud during the day by the main pool, but it didn't bother us cause we weren't in our rooms during the day.

  6. They have someone that will be in charge of it. Just make sure you tell your WC exactly what song or playlist it is.

Obviously nothing is perfect and there were some hang ups, but it was totally worth it and absolutely amazing!! I will post a review this weekend if I have time!! But if any of you have specific questions about anything, let me know!! My wedding coordinator was Denys. She is soooo nice and was so calm about everything and she made sure everything looked beautiful... and it did for sure!! Even though this forum helped me a ton with a lot of questions I had, I almost feel that it hurt me in ways, cause the things that people have said were really awesome ended up not turning out for me, but then it is also vice versa, things that didn't end up going good for some, ended up turning out awesome for me!! There are a few things I would be aware of. I used an i-pod for the music and was told somebody would stand and man it to make sure music keeps playing.. well for the ceremony, they did an awesome job. But for the reception, there was nobody there the entire time. The bartenders were "taking care" of it, but I pretty much had to keep going over and messing with it, and changing the playlists from dinner to dancing, etc. so if I could do it over, I would get a DJ I think, or do something else because I felt like I had to take time out of the fun to go over and make sure it kept going. Another thing was that I paid for the extra hour of reception, so that I would have 4 hours instead of 3, so my reception was supposed to be from 6 - 10. Well at about 8:45, they started packing up the bar and the speakers, etc. and one of my bridesmaids told me and I went up to them and asked about it and they said I only had 15 more minutes. My wedding coordinator was standing there too and didn't realize or forgot that I paid for the extra hour and was like "Oohh..... ok". So they plugged everything back in, etc.. but I was so upset about it that it kind of ruined the mood from then on. And then even though we had the extra hour they started packing up the bar at like 9:15 so people weren't even sure if they could get drinks anymore... so a word of advice, make sure that when you meet with your coordinator when you get down here, print out everything (checklists, guest lists, food menu, etc.) and bring it with you, because I'm not really sure that the on-site coordinator looks at everything that you paid for (like the extra hour of reception). We hadn't gone over that in our meeting, I guess I didn't really think about it but i thought she would have known and seen it . Plus there are a ton of weddings a day here, so your coordinator is also working on other weddings at the same time as yours, so they do forget/mess things up.. but for the most part everything else went fantastic! Also, I got the tres leches cake for the wedding. They served it on the lunch menu at Pelicanos, so if you want to try it beforehand, you can go there during lunchtime. It was awesome at Pelicanos, but when I had it at the wedding, I wasn't even sure if it was tres leches?! It was pretty dry, and the "milk layers" were really thin, it tasted like it was overcooked a little or something. I didn't like it, but other people did, so I guess in the end it was fine. Anyways, I will write my review in the next week or two... let me know if you have any other questions. OOOHHH and I'm still waiting to get all of my decorations back, they told me they would pack it all up and put it in our room... well, we are leaving tomorrow morning and we still haven't gotten anything back yet and have already reminded them once about it.. I'm hoping they didn't lose/throw it all away cause I was going to use the stuff for my AHR!! :/ BUT honestly despite the few things that went wrong, everything else was more than perfect, the resort is beautiful, the weather was perfect so it was definitely the right choice for us to have the wedding here!!

  9. Labebita911: I am using Marvin and he said he delivers to Playa del Carmen everyday and the "delivery fee" is already included in the cost of the flowers and that he will set up a time to meet you in the lobby the day of the wedding so you can pick up the flowers from him. The resort shouldn't charge you a vendor fee as long as u pick up the flowers yourself and set everything up yourself!! Let's hope that's true...
  10. My WC had told me and sent me pictures of the reception setup that comes with all of the packages. It is the white table cloth, white chair covers, lights underneath the table, and a candle for the centerpiece. Here is a pic of the standard setup (so I was told):

Do to the small size of the wedding and my wedding party, a dancing reception really doesn't work for us. Does anyone have any ideas of what I could plan to do with my guests after the dinner? Thanks! Arica Arica- I only have about 15 people but I am doing a private reception on the beach with dancing, however I was told we have to be off the beach by 10... so I plan on going to the Blue Parrot or just walk along 5th avenue to find some places to go afterwards if everybody is still in the "party" mood! There's a lot of posts on here about fun bars that other brides have gone to, so I would search on here. My wedding is on April 16th, but we are going down there on the 13th.. maybe I will run into you?!
  12. Lisa- Where in Tulum did you do your trash the dress session?? I love them!! I'm trying to find a good place to have my trash session..
