  1. Hi Girls, I'm less than 2 weeks away from the big day!. For those of you who got makeup done at the Spa, did you think they did a good job? I'm not doing a trial beforehand and have a few friends on standby to fix the makeup if needed. Also, how big was the wedding cake (height, width)? Trying to figure out what to do with the topper. Thanks! -A
  2. Thanks for the feedback! I haven't tried contacting the decor company but if you're not getting a response ask your wedding coordinator to get in touch with her. When I emailed the florist directly, she replied saying that she'll be in touch with my WC about options/prices.
  3. Does anyone know if the hair/make-up person from the spa can come to the room? Or everything needs to be done at the spa? Also, how much time should I budget for hair and make-up?
  4. Susie - you and Brook look amazing! Great video! Hope you guys are doing well Hi - I'm using Mike Cantarell for video: http://cancunweddingvideo.com/barcelomaya/nydia_waylon/ Really nice guys, I met them and saw their work. For DJ, I'm using DJ Doremixx, I know someone who used him before and was happy with the service. Both are outside of the hotel vendor list.
  5. Congratulations and good luck with the planning! I've stayed in the adults only building and loved it. It was nice to have a quiet section of the beach with no children, plus the adults only side has beach beds with shades. They have one restaurant that's only designated to building 6 (excellence building), had breakfast there once, it was really good. You get nice little perks when you stay there. We have a lot of kids coming to our wedding so it'll be nice to get away from everyone for a bit. I totally think it's worth it. Aaaand you have an AMAZING view from the balcony.
  6. Does anyone know if young kids are counted as part of total guest head-count? And if there's a separate rate for children for the reception.
  7. Congratulations Jeanine! You looked amazing. Was the photographer reasonably priced? Most photographers I looked into were $4k and up for 8 hours. Who did you use for video? (if you had one)
  8. Hello ladies, Congratulations to all! I'm getting married at the Finest on 12/13/15. Booked the wedding date and reserved a block of rooms. Planning to have a ceremony on the beach. Not sure about the reception yet, we'll probably have 80+ people. I was told that the Finest and Excellence resorts share the meeting/conference space, which is big enough to accommodate a large group. Bringing my own photographer but not sure what to do for video yet. I'm a little concerned that the video vendor the hotel provides has zero reviews. The centerpieces are a little pricey so I'm thinking of shipping a box with supplies there and making my own (something simple and beachy, like a large candle in a vase with some sand and sea shells). I just booked a mini vacation to the Finest for the last week of May. Going to meet with the wedding coordinator and hopefully reserve the reception space. If anyone wants pictures of specific areas let me know.

    DJ´s Doremixx

    Awesome DJ - got exactly what we asked for

    Pros: Knew exactly what we wanted and delivered
    Cons: none
    Ivan was the DJ at my destination wedding in Mexico.  He played great music and really had the party going.  People couldn’t stop dancing, it was so much fun we would’ve went all night long if the hotel allowed – this was a NYC crowd that really knows how to party.  Ivan played all the songs from the list we gave him and incorporated a lot of his own.  The music really made the wedding tons of fun.  He also brought some awesome props which people loved.  I would not think twice and book Ivan for
  10. Amazing Team - Excellent video

    Pros: Flexible
    Cons: Took awhile to get the video (but sooo worth the wait)
    We hired Cancun Video to capture our wedding in December at Finest Playa Mujeres resort.  They were very professional, gave us different package options and were very easy to work with.  Jerry did a superb job capturing our special day.  Jerry and his assistant worked really hard and captured the most amazing shots.  They knew exactly the time and location for the best sunset pictures and during the ceremony we barely even noticed the cameras next to us which kept the ceremony intimate while sti
