  1. I was married in 2012, but we did get two free trips through Transat and I can tell you the amount was the base cost not including taxes. I'm not sure why yours is less than that. I'm not sure if the rules have changed, but I would fight it!
  2. I had Lillian last year and she handled our wedding of 80 almost flawlessly. There were only a couple of glitches - like having to wait for a second bus to transport people to the reception.

  4. Us too. Married March 28,2012 and now they won't even respond to emails. We spent thousands of dollars to capture our day and feel that they have taken advantage of us. They had quoted 6-8 months and kept promising us "soon" and every email was telling us another 2 weeks. The last email I have from them is from January.
  5. It's been 11 months and no video and no responses to email now either. They are 3 months late and the last email promised me feb 15. Anybody know if I can request a refund through PayPal?
  6. Canadian Brides. Time sensitive deal for today only. Theres a deal on convertable dresses long and short for bridesmaids. There is a limited number of colors - purple gray black red blue and green I think. They are $59 including shipping to Canada. I've ordered a couple of these before for myself and the quality is really good. http://www.dealfind.com/!/link.php?l=27225726

  8. Hi 2013-05-Bride, At the time of our wedding, there was no outside vendor fee for the DJ and you will want to check with your wedding coordinator to see if it has changed. The hotel did say that we would be charged $100/hour to use the hotel's electricity. DiscoMovil rented us a generator for a $200 flat fee. We hired the DJ for 5 hours and he was very flexible and said we could add on extra time if we wanted to keep the reception going (for a reasonable fee...I think it was $100/hour). The resort, on the other hand, is quite pricey and they charge a fee of $13/hour per person to have the reception going any longer than your package.
  9. We had our ceremony on Coral Beach at the Palace. This was perfect because it is a beach location looking over coral so nobody walks behind your ceremony, there are palm trees for shade for your guests and because it was close to everybody's rooms they had some time to go back and change or to one of the bars/buffets after the 3pm ceremony while we took our pictures on the beach.
  10. We just used the free centerpieces from the resort. They put a tea light in the middle. Plus we brought down other things to place on the tables: maracas, ribbon wands, matchstick mints, table numbers. I think it looked nice!
  11. Barcelo Maya Palace Brides Post Here :D
  12. The Euphoria package is offered by a Canadian company Transat. You are only able to use that package if you book air/hotel with them. It save you money over the Strawberry Passion package, but it requires a lot of number crunching.
  13. We used discomovilcancun and they were great and reasonably priced. They have playlists on their website and I sent them must plays and do not plays a week before the wedding so they could get a sense of the music we liked. I costed them out to be appx half of what te resort would've charged us. I can't remember if they spoke English very well but I would have somebody MC/introduce all the important things- entrance, first dance etc. If you are hiring an outside dj, the resort charges $100/hour to use their electricity. We rented a generator from discomovilcancun for $200 flat rate. Here's a link to my very long review on our wedding. http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/products/barcelo-maya-palace-deluxe-all-inclusive/reviews/5916
  14. Katman, If I were to do it again, I wouldn't have done my makeup. I had gone to sephora and got all this "waterproof" stuff but we started with the underwater photos right away because of the lighting and we wanted to get shots in before the tourists arrived. If we didn't do underwater shots and just did pictures on the beach, I would do my makeup. Make sure you get a dress that is lighter fabric. My ceremony dress was satin and was heavy. This one was much lighter but weighed a ton when it got wet. My photographer was Gonzalo Nunez he is awesome and has such a calm and fun personality.
  15. We stayed two weeks and did our TTD the second week when everybody left. I did my makeup, but it was gone within minutes of underwater shooting. I do have eyelash extensions which I love. Here are some TTD teaser pics from our photographer
  16. Trash the Dress....yes or no???

  19. We just got back last month and the customs card has been updated. The Max amount is still $300 but the quantities have increased. It's two cameras now. I'm pretty sure they got with the times and realized that in this day and age people own more things. http://www.aduanas.gob.mx/aduana_mexico/2008/pasajeros/139_10210.html WHICH ITEMS MAY BE INCLUDED IN MY PERSONAL LUGGAGE EXEMPT FROM DUTY?
