  1. Hi Josie - I've requested Dahlias and have been quoted $100 extra. I'm also doing buckets of flowers at the ends of the aisles that will then become the centrepieces...they're about $45 each, but they haven't been very helpful in showing me options for what they'll look like, so i have been sending pictures.
  2. I'll let you know where i end up getting them! I'm making a day trip to Cancun to Costco early in the week to get wine for the reception dinner (we're wine snobs and the resort wine is apparently crap) -- so i'm going to source 100 mini maracas somewhere in town
  3. I'm doing maracas as place holders on tables, they shake those to make you kiss!
  4. I've worked it out with them that i'm having the surf & turf menu, and my vegetarians can have the dill salmon instead of the weird Vegetarian pastry.... but they just need to know firm numbers 1 month before so i'm working on that. fortunately all my veg-heads eat fish!
  5. hi there - this is the exact solution i was looking for ... but i'm hoping to find in Cancun. was this picture from Playa Del Carmen?? Think i'd find the same in Cancun? my only fear is that it's actually BIGGER in cancun and ther'es too many options, i need to make it a quick trip in and back to the resort!
  6. Hey brides! I'm trying to avoid PRE-ordering mini maracas as place holders/favours - I'm bringing too much already! We have 100 guests, so i'm looking to do single or pairs of mini maracas. Has anyone found a good, CHEAP source in Cancun that can do this??? My wedding is at OCT resort near Peurto Morales, but I will be getting wine/champagne at Costco in Cancun when we get there - and don't mind picking up all the maracas then, but looking for a quick, reliable source... help!!!
  7. Did you pay extra for your welcome dinner or did they just allow you to reserve a section of the restaurant?
  8. OMG, hilarious that i'm just finding your post about shellac now, i've been thinking about it non stop.. .did it last???? i guess it depends how long you were there before the actual wedding day!
  9. according to the wedding package it says they DO accept packages, but they also charge $4 per room to put the packages in! depends how much you're sending, but might be easier/better to pay for an extra bag, and give out the bags at a welcome cocktail party or something...
  10. Hi Abby, thanks for this! still learning to navigate this forum so i didn't even see this till today! We have 57 booked now - and a few sort of random pairings that COULD make the bathroom factor a bit awkward, ha! adds to the adventure though.. sorry to bug you for more - but for nightlife -did you stick to the resort the whole time? and did you do a rehearsal dinner?? with such a big group I fear how much the actual wedding is going to start costing.... so i'm not sure what to do about a welcome thing or a rehearsal dinner....
  11. Hi Guilaine - People might surprise you. We booked our wedding for Nov 16, 2012. We had a complicated group rate booking out of Vancouver, Edmonton, Montreal and mostly Toronto -- in the end the best deal was Deposits ($250 pp) due March 21 - Full pay due Aug 15. I sent the invites out on March 10, and was SO SO worried. But guess what?? 57 PEOPLE BOOKED BY THE DEADLINE! And my travel agent at Blue Petal Weddings in Vancouver got an extension for 26 more seats - deposit extended to April 26 -- but i didn't tell people that ; ) BRIDES: I shared our "save the week" e-invitation here in case it helps anyone - we basically embedded this image in our email. it's actually a photo of the seat holders from another Destination wedding we went to, and i fixed the fonts in photoshop and did it that way.

  13. Photography? Hey OCT brides past and present - I'm looking into photographers and am interested in hearing what other people have experienced: I'm not that sure about the in-house photographer - but for those of you who booked outside photographers - any advice? what kind of prices did you get and were you happy? Thanks!
