      Hi Lizzie! Unfortunately BDW changed my account permissions so I can no longer send PMs or post in any threads without paying a monthly vendor fee. Please go to http://loveandrum.com/marry-me-katy-mikee-in-tulum/ or https://www.facebook.com/loveandlacedecor and contact me through there with your email address. I will send everything to you that way. Thanks!

  2. Perfect, you could stop on your way to Tulum for me to buy some things. Looking forward to seeing photos and pricing of everything! Have a great party this weekend!
  3. That's too bad about the sky deck not allowing string lighting. I'm sure the twinkle of the stars and whatever lighting you choose to have on your tables will be just as beautiful! You've got lots of time to decide on your decor, don't worry. Let me know if you need a hand with any decisions along the way, I'd be happy to help! I love looking at other bride's Pinterest boards to see if I can suggest stuff! I may be married now but I'm still wedding obsessed.
  4. Sounds good! Send me a PM with photos and pricing whenever you have a chance. Although I'm located in Playa Del Carmen which is a ferry ride and an hour's drive from Isla Mujeres. Do you guys plan to come down this way for any trips or excursions after your wedding? Sent!
  5. Thank you so much for your kind words, and I'm so happy your wedding was everything you dreamed! You and Joyce were a pleasure to work with. I can't wait to see photos of everything put together. Congrats again, and here's to a happy and healthy marraige for you and your new hubby!
  6. I have some I can rent you if you want! Here's the info on the paper lanterns I have. These prices are much lower than what the resort charges. You can just tell them you're bringing them yourself and ask them to set them up for you. Send me a PM if you're interested. Paper Lanterns: Paper lanterns of various sizes and colours with lights for inside - tiffany blue, ivory, white, pink, light pink & light pink with chevron pattern $2 ea. - 8" (6 ivory, 3 tiffany blue) $2.50 ea. - 10" (20 white) $2.50 ea. - 12" (15 white, 3 ivory, 5 pink, 5 light pink) $3 ea. - 14" (7 light pink chevron pattern, 5 white) $3 ea. - 16" (20 white, 4 ivory, 4 tiffany blue, 5 pink, 3 light pink) $3.50 ea. - 20" (1 ivory, 1 pink, 1 light pink) $4 ea. - 24" (4 ivory, 5 tiffany blue) $1 ea. - LED light/battery powered lightbulb for hanging inside paper lantern
  7. I know Zaida from Dolcet does delivery, but I don't know if she does macaroons. I'm not sure about Cafe Antoinette, but I would suggest messaging them to ask. In my experience of living here, though, anything and everything can be delivered.
  8. @@girlinthecity97 Thank you! I thought he did a great job, especially since it was the first wedding video he'd ever done. Where in Mexico are you getting married?
  9. Thank you so much! Our really good friend Tom (from Vancouver) filmed it for us. He has some experience editing, but it was his first wedding video. Pretty amazing, especially for a first try! The photographers from Canada (Luckygirl.ca) were amazing too. I actually found them on this forum through another Canadian bride. We had originally booked one of the higher quality photographers down here, and they were going to cost $4600 for 8 hours of coverage and a limited amount of edited images. With Luckygirl, we did a 5 hour shoot the day before the wedding, they stuck around for 14 hours on our wedding day, and we ended up with over 1000 edited images! It also ended up being less money than the other photographer was going to be, even when we factored in their flights, accommodation and photography fees. For our audio equipment we used JSAV - http://www.jsavmexico.com/Contact_Us.html They were great but make sure you pay attention the the quotes and are specific with the details of all the little charges. Our quote was increased with something they said was included originally, so I had to negotiate a bit. That's often how things work in Mexico. Thanks for the compliments on Mikee's outfit! He did choose his own outfit, although I was there helping him try everything on. But the vision of the outfit was all his!
  10. Hello Tulum brides, and congrats on your upcoming Tulum weddings! My husband and I were married at El Bistro Ziggy Beach at The Beach & Cabañas Tulum Hotels. The venue and hotels were great, and the staff there are amazing! Every time we go back we feel like family. We actually live down here in Playa Del Carmen, and Tulum is our favourite place along the entire coast. If you have a wedding coming up, feel free to ask me any questions you may have, as I have spent quite a bit of time down there, as well as lots of time researching all the venues. You can see our engagement and wedding photos in my signature, both of which were in Tulum. (Both the town and the beach) We also just got our wedding video that our friend put together for us, if you'd like to get a feel for the area! He really captured the feeling of Tulum with the video. The song we chose was written by a musician that spent two months down there living in a tent, so the song really feels like the area as well. Here's a blog post with more info on the venue and our friend who shot the video: http://loveandrum.com/marry-me-katy-mikee-in-tulum
  11. @girlinthecity97: Have you considered bringing someone down with you? Often the prices of the best videographers down here are inflated because they know people will have to pay higher prices if they want good quality. That's what happens when there isn't a ton of competition to keep the prices low. Our friend from Vancouver just shot this for us last May. I'm not saying fly him down to film for you or anything, but having him film for us was much more affordable than anyone down here. Maybe you could do something similar? Here's a blog post with more info on our friend, if you're interested: http://loveandrum.com/marry-me-katy-mikee-in-tulum
