About Courtney Hooker

  1. Yes, I am familiar with the weather situation. We had clear skies for the ceremony and then it rained during our reception. They had to move us inside, which while that wasn't ideal it was fine. They moved us within an hour and managed to save our centerpieces. During that time my guests just hung out in the lobby bar. If it is windy during the ceremony make sure you ask your wedding coordinator to anchor the alter. I've heard of it flying away.
  2. I used Norma from Ultrafemme. She and her stylist Moses by far exceeded my expectations. I am super picky about my hair and makeup and was very nervous, but Norma is so professional, friendly, and fantastic. One of the best decisions I made in regards to my wedding. You won't be disappointed.
  3. Thanks for the compliments. The wedding was at the Hard Rock Cancun (formally known as Cancun Palace). No, I did not pay outside vendor fees for anyone except my DJ and photographer. If you want things set up (aka, not have your guests do it), you can hire Cintya for $200 and she takes care of everything. She helped the florist set up everything and was a gem. I used a decor company for everything else (chandelier, starfish, chair decor). I got my hair and makeup done in my room. No vendor fees. I used Norma from Ultrafemme.... she was AMAZING and far more reasonable then most. I am super pick
  4. I did not order the napkin orchids from Marvin because I the quote I received for this item was outside of my budget. I ordered the orchids from Save-on-crafts.com. They are REAL perserved orchids and I think I got 30 of them for just $12.99. Easy to travel with and well worth it.
  5. To piggy back on this, just so you know the breeze terrace is no longer available, as it is under construction (at least it was for my August 4 wedding at Cancun Palace/Hard Rock. We chose the garden terrace and loved it.
  6. Hi Melanie, Feel free to send me a PM and I will be able to answer these questions. I just got married August 4 and have tons of pictures posted on the Palace Resort Bride Facebook page. I am not on this website very much anymore so let me know. Courtney

  8. Hi Ladies, I realize that there are not a lot of Cancun Palace/Hard Rock Cancun 2012 Brides unified under one thread. There are few of us so I think it would be great to stick together and share our experiences, as many things have happened over the past couple months with the resort and its rebranding. Personally, I have found the Miami coordination stressful, frustrating and unprofessional. It has been a horrible experience so far. However, I have heard that it all comes together when you get there, but at what cost? For me to lose my mind before it? Lol. I have heard mixed

  10. Beautiful wedding! Unfortunately, they are not letting brides book the breeze Terrace anymore. I just spoke to both Maggie and Yesenia today! Devestating!
  11. Hi Liz! I am so sorry I have not responded to you. I have been so swamped with the wedding and this school year ending. We have had so SO many problems with the Cancun Palace/Hard Rock. All of these problems stem from the Miami office. I think we all share the same frustrations, so hang in there! We had a couple friends book through a travel agent, and we just got an email saying that those rooms will not count toward our room nights which was NEVER told to us. If I were you, I would double check because apparently the room nights only count if you book them through your (ove
