  1. My wedding was on August 2, 2014 :)
  2. I brought my own dj. He brought his own mixer and laptop and just connected it to the speakers. It worked out great and no extra cost because I just told them we were playing from an "ipod."
  3. Claudia is awesome. I'm pretty sure she's the head coordinator and oversees most of the weddings. She's fantastic!
  4. @pekchw- We didn't use the DJ they offered because it was so freaking expensive. We had our friend (who is also a DJ) come and he brought his own mixer and computer and DJ'd for us for FREE. We just told the WC that our friend was going to play music off of his computer and there was no additional charge or anything. Hope that helps! @tkennerson- I'm not sure about the traveler's checks. We also ran into this problem and hadn't realized that most banks charge an international fee. My husband has Chase and they charge 3% whereas I'm with a credit union that charges 1%. So we transferred a
  5. Hi Everyone! Just returned from our trip to Cancun last week. Our wedding was on Saturday August 2, 2014. Just wanted to let you guys know what I learned from my experience just in case you had questions. Ceremony: 5pm @ the Gazebo Okay so this area is not private at all. It's literally right next to the infinity pool where everyone and their mom hangs out all day. So everyone who's in the pool, around the pool, by the pool, on a bench.. can witness your wedding ceremony, which is what happened with our wedding. It was pretty weird to just have a bunch of strangers standby and watch.
  6. They said she had a family emergency and had to leave. Not sure when your wedding is so don't know if it'll effect you too. My new WC is Maira. Anyone heard of her? She's been helpful so far. Yeah you're definitely allowed to bring some of your own decor! Anyone have their wedding on the pool deck? I'm trying to figure out if we need to rent additional lighting...
  7. I had Ayahamint for my original wedding coordinator and I've just been told I have a new wedding coordinator 2 weeks before my wedding.
  8. Does anyone know the sizes of the rectangular tables? Planning to purchase table runners. Thanks!
  9. Hi Everyone! Haven't been on in awhile. My wedding is on August 2, 2014 Saturday. We're expecting 87 people. Ceremony: Gazebo at 5PM Reception: Pool Deck at 8PM I'm most likely opting out of the cocktail hour to save the $2k. As for decor, I'm trying to go really minimal. I haven't even finalized anything with our wedding coordinator as it is so hard to communicate w/ her. We have Ayahamint. I have so many questions but it sounds complicated just emailing her.
  10. @@FutureMrs2014 I'll be getting in Tuesday July 29th and staying til the following Tuesday August 5th!
  11. I'm getting married August 2, 2014. Hoping to hear from the wedding coordinator soon so we can finalize details and costs. I'm most likely going to do the bare minimum for decorations!
  12. Thanks for the info! That sucks that you can't credit the cocktail hour for credit. After reading this, I contacted my wedding coordinator to see what she says. She hasn't responded yet. I know the photography prices went up from 2013. I told them that they have to honor the quotes they sent me when I had originally reserved the wedding package.
  13. Anyone decide on entrees yet? Still deciding. I spoke to the wedding coordinator and you can have up to 2 options, but I need to decide fast so I can put it on the RSVP.
  14. I had booked the wedding myself directly through the resort and they won't honor the complimentary cocktail party for me. I had mention I read that other brides were able to get "grandfathered" in and they're asking for names. If anyone was able to get grandfathered in for the complimentary cocktail, could you please let me know your name and wedding date? I'm hoping to really secure this promotion. Not fair!
