  1. http://www.resortsmaps.com/popup.html?maps/map-NowJadeRivieraCancun-RivMaya.jpg Does this one work? I gave you the wrong link. Oops! I'll figure out how to save to and paste it here
  2. There are people there all the time that just help you with excursions...there's also the tiki where you get yout towels at that sell snorkeling, diving, fishing and other things. I would definitely try and talk your way down with them because right down the beach, there are vendors that sell it for wayyyy cheaper. If you go to puerto morelos, which is a 45 min walk down the beach, there's lots of places that'll take you out snorkeling as well. The people at the resort are very helpful and have soooo many different excusions.
  3. Hahaha I am the same way. I am not sure I went 2 hours without eating there. Embarrassing but we even put paninis in our bags and walked the beach for a couple hours haha I want to say the disco was open until 2ish...maybe later. There's live entertainment In the lobby too...that's where most everyone hung out until they were done. The band is awesome! So much energy! And they have different themed nights. One night is Mexican night and they had a donkey and Mexican vendors and stuff there too. Oh my word I want to be back there now haha we had a blast at night time...and during the day and every second hahaha everyone ranted and raved about paramour...we didn't eat there though because we have a 2 year old and wanted to eat dinner with him. The sushi was super good and had a Mexican flair to it...one had plantains and cream cheese...mmmmm but I suggest if you do go there order 2 meals...you get a lot of courses but the sushi is small. The hibachi...which is attached to the Japanese restaurant I thought was wonderful too. The buffet, we ate there the most...great selection!! HUGE selection actually. During lunch they had some sort of design your own thing, whether it be burgers, fajitas, stir fry, etc. Breakfast they had pick your own omelette thing there and crepes. Fresh daily juice...like actual real juice which was impressive to me...fruit...basically everything! The blue water grill was decent but not my favorite...the seagulls try to attack your food out there too!
  4. We had just the your moments package since we just had 6 people and it was included....it's 200 for each different colors...I think all of the packages come with the white. Eep!! I can't view them either but I am SOOOO EXCITED for you!! Doesn't that take so much off your shoulders already? Yay! Congrats!! Apple vacations were wonderful. They even help you out on the resort, if you need them too. They also offer the direct ride to the resort instead of dropping people off on the way which was great! The rates were really good as well! We always ordered room service if it was super late, and you can get that all the time. it was very convenient, there is so much food there though, it's crazy! During the entertainment they set out snacks as well. They also have a cafe/coffee place there that has the best paninis ever, in between the times the restaurants aren't opened. I think I might have gained 10 lbs from eating so much there lol
  5. I have no yet, our internet is so slow in the middle of nowhere, and id like to include pictures and stuff, so I am going to wait until we get to Ohio (where my husbands job is right now and fast internet haha) to send it over. Itll probably be done next week...I'll definitely send it over I think I might have that and more in the pictures section of my profile, hopefully it's still there.
  6. I completely understand your frustration and I hope you can get all of your answers shortly!! Can't wait to see pics of your wedding, sounds like it's going to be incredible
  7. Ramon was there the last week of January, when we were there. I dealt with Anel the whole time and then Ramon at the very end..they all communicate VERY well with each other and it Seems, from talking to Ramon randomly, that you have to have a lot of wedding coordinating experience before they consider you to work there. So I imagine Juan also knows what he's doing...and since he's new, he will probably go wayyyyy overboard haha just a thought I know you're nervous, but I promise you that they all know what they're doing and wonderful at it. I'm shocked that they have 2-3 weddings a day and pay so much detail to each one. I was sooo nervous before but the communication when you get there is like night and day from the email communication. I hardly filled out that wedding planner thing, which I was scared about...when you get there they make sure it's EXACTLY how you want, every detail. They'll even suggest things that'll go together more. I was shocked that they weren't trying to up sell everything! I was thinking of getting bows on the gold chairs and he's like "I think the chairs themselves will look better" he could've made more money but instead did what he thought would look best, he did this with a lot of things and it made me feel so much better.
  8. Zulily looks like they are having a sale today on them...starts at 9am...I saw the preview for them and had to share
  9. I am not sure. Keep in mind it can be windy (but still gorgeous) there...at least when we went it was...and I've heard from lots of others, it was the same way. I'd maybe bring the flame less ones just in case or just stick with them?
  10. Ugghhhh I know I wanted one too! I wanted to do those lanterns also for my mom and grandma who both passed away but they said it's against that part of the beaches rules apparently. It's probably some sort of liability for them. Random lol but they do have an amazing fire show there, on the beach...get there early and get good seats because it is phenomenal!! Fire made me think of that hahaha
  11. No they will not let you, I inquired about this as well! And surprisingly when you are there they go over everything with you even more...and finalize everything. You talk with Ramon or Anel for as long as you want and they go into lots of details. It's a complete different ball game when you are actually there! They treat you like royalty and go wayyyy overboard with details. I'd imagine you can call but when you get there I PROMISE everything will be taken care of plus wayyy more. You'll be pleasantly surprised!
  12. Haha that's exactly how I was too!! I hate waiting to the last minute to do stuff and also am the most indecisive person ever. I changed my mind 6895 times about everything! It'll all get done and will be beautiful, I promise. I wish I worried less
  13. I wish I would have known that...and it is very true that the closer you book the cheaper it goes down I think, my inlAws booked about 6 months prior to the wedding and it was way cheaper than what we got it for. We booked a year in advanced....next vacation I will definitely book closer to. As far as the gift bags, I didn't have those so I can't offer you help there, I'm sorry :/
  14. When you get there, they set you up with a meeting with either Ramon or Anel and you go over every little detail, they'll show you pictures too...they have A LOT of stuff....he asks you what colors you want and will help you pick...you get to pick your colors of everything, including your flowers. I had a massive bouquet of peach, pink and cream roses. It was very nice and they didn't skimp on the roses at all. All of the flowers turned out soooo pretty.
  15. No mam! They did it without us even knowing! You're talking about the couple pouring the sand into the bottle together right? Every ceremony that was there, that we saw that week had one....I assume they do it for everyone...and you keep the bottle
  16. Thank you. I promise...it's beautiful no matter what! It rained for some other girls weddings as well when we were down there and I saw it and it was sooo gorgeous!! I didn't think it was going to be anywhere near as pretty as a beach wedding because that's what I had my heart set on but I can promise you...it was just as gorgeous...not to mention everyone in the main bar cheered! It was awesome Nico Zapata is GREAT....and way under that he's so super sweet and meets with you before as well. Once I get my computer up and running I'll show you the pics as well
  17. We just got back not too long ago. I'll have a review up with lots of pictures and details As soon as we get the pictures from the photographer back. I just want to say that I am soooo jealous of the ones who are going still...it goes by so so fast. When you get there everything is taken care of. Ramon is wonderful and so is Anel!! They go above and beyond for everyone's weddings and really know what they are doing. Don't stress! They'll do it all but 1000 times better! It was super windy and rainy on our wedding day and I had planned on getting married outside....they set up in this area kind of inside/outside. It was just as beautiful, I thought...and surprisingly I wasn't upset at all! If anyone has questions, you can ask me too! You ladies, who haven't gone yet are sooooo lucky that it's not over yet haha
  18. You are amazing, Dina. We only have 3 guests coming. :/ I too feel like there's so much I have no idea what I want and how I want it. Thank you so much...I am not stressed at all any more because you and other brides have all said everything gets taken care of. I'm putting jn my trust to them thank you again Hey! When is your wedding date? Mine is 1/23. We both are getting married around the same date I think!
  19. Also, when you get there, will they go over the decorations and how you want it? and will they show you the options they have there? thanks
  20. Has anyone had a small wedding with only a few people? we were expecting wayyyy more then just his parents and a friend, but turns out that everyone bailed, which I guess is understandable. I am filling out this form now and am kind of down as how silly a few chairs will look.
  21. I can't offer any input but we will be at now sapphire and I have heard amazing reviews about it and am super excited...we are getting married January 23, 2014
  22. Just wanted to let you all know that living social is having pay 10 dollars to get 50 dollars worth for vista print...that's a pretty good deal I think. If any of you needed T-shirts, cards, coozies, or anything for your oot bags or whatever
  23. What's all of your ladies grooms and groomsmen wearing? You guys doing any unique cake toppers, decorations? How is that all coming along? What kind of shoes do you all plan on wearing? Hair up, hair down? Lol clearly I'm full of questions. Hahaha I'm excited for all of us...ad getting anxious
  24. Our wedding is going to be on the smaller side as well. We will be lucky if we get 15 haha I wish more people could come, but our families aren't big at all. Small things add up so fast, oh my goodnes! Makeup, hair, flowers, sound, decorations, small details. I also am feeling stressed out staying within budget because all of these things adding up are getting crazy expensive...and then I forget we still have to pay our trip there off and I get even more stressed hahaha everything will be perfect though. I feel like I am a lot less stressed with doing it this way than if we had a local wedding...I kind of feel like nothing can ruin just being on vacation lol I agree with the bonfire on the beach...that is so our style too! I'm hoping we can get the photographer that we had planned on to come down with us, because like you said it's basically the same exact price but you get more if the photographer is with you a lot. That is what's making me the most nervous! Pictures are what's more important to me than anything. I need a money tree is what it comes down to
