  1. My bridesmaids did their own hair and makeup and it still looked lovely. My hair and makeup was included because we booked so many rooms but I would have paid anyway, they did a great job.
  2. They meet with you once you get there and they fill in a spread sheet, the coordinator handles everything from there and they do a great job
  3. The attached photos are iphone photos guests took, our professional photos are not ready just yet. Our (6pm 5/14) wedding was beautiful and the reception was so much fun! The WC (Gaby) was great. It was perfect for photos and dark and hour later. Loreto at the spa did my hair and makeup and it was lovely. We brought our own DJ, Photographer, minister, classical guitarist friends with us in exchange for their services, and I made/ bought all our decorations and paid a $300 set up/clean up fee. I brought pictures with detailed instructions as to how I wanted everything set up, they did a perfect job. I made my bouquet from fabric flowers and made the bridesmaid fans because flowers were so pricy. We gave our bridesmaids a color pallet to chose whatever short dress they wanted (or already had) and our groomsmen wore the same $20 shirt and whatever kahaki pants and brown shoes they had, it worked out lovely. We did the beach BBQ, everything was good except the steak (overcooked) and the dessert table was amazing!!! My friend did the plated food when we met there 3 years ago and the BBQ was better. They charge to put welcome bags in the room so we just walked around with a bunch and passed them out when we ran into our guests, it worked nicely. Resort: A couple guests complained about the phone calls to tell them to come to the concierge desk, they said the resort tried to push them timeshare options and one guest had an issue with their return shuttle not showing up but those were the only negative things I heard from our guests. I booked with Lomas. When you arrive they send you to confirm your return flight info right away, I found this irritating as we were staying a week (they try to upsell you excursions at the same time) If you are going in a big group I breaking up into small groups to eat at any restaurant other than spoon. Expect a wait at the Italian food place they have tons of open tables and seemingly enough staff but there is still a wait. Excursion: We did Xcaret it was beautiful, the river float was the highlight we booked it through "My Cancun Tours" online but you can book with the resort too. they have another park called explore there, there is more to do and it is all included, Xcaret tries to upsell a lot of things. I did Tulum last visit and that was a blast, such an amazing beach!!! I forgot to include a photo of the bridesmaid fans, they were easy to pack and everyone loved them
  4. http://www.amazon.com/yards-Sheer-Organza-Fabric-Bolt/dp/B007KRV7KS?ie=UTF8&psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00 I used this bolt from Amazon, I handed it over to the WC. We paid a $300 fee for our set up/clean up, they cut the bolt and hung them as we requested. http://www.amazon.com/yards-Sheer-Organza-Fabric-Bolt/dp/B007KRV7KS?ie=UTF8&psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00 I used this bolt from Amazon, I handed it over to the WC.

  5. we set up xcaret through "my cancun tours", if you book with the hotel you need to pre pay for your party to be together on the same bus. 4. I'm setting up an excursion to Xcaret, can people staying at another hotel be picked up or do they need to mee us at Azul? That's all I can think of for now. I'm sure I will have more questions to follow.
  6. Our Mexico wedding isn't until May 14th but we got married in the ICU in NJ right before my husbands father passed and had another ceremony for his Mom, who is terminally ill with Cancer and, sadly won't be in attendance in Mexico. Have any of you ladies seen, done, or plan do do any type of memorial at your wedding? I was thinking an empty seat with flowers? Does anyone have any better ideas? I don't know what, if anything would be appropriate :,(
  7. I bought these canvas bags, it was cheaper to do a big lot so I have so many extras!! If anyone is interested in them let me know I'll part with them at a discounted rate, the little ones are about 9x9" (without the handle) and are $1 each plus the exact cost of shipping. the big ones look the same but are about 15x15" (without the handle) and are $2 each plus the exact cost of shipping.
  8. My friend used real touch lillies for her wedding and no one could tell the difference. I am using pretty wooden fans and I attached a flower and a ribbon for my bridesmaids, I made myself a pinterest inspired fabric flower bouquet and it is stunning. Think outside the box and check out pinterest, you would be amazed what you can do especially if you are crafty or enlist a crafty friend. Has anyone previously chosen Xcaret at an optional excursion for their wedding weekend? Any pointers or advice?
  9. I want to buy a house next year (and I live in LA $$$) so Im saving where I can by doing crafts. I got these little plates and stands at the cent store, I painted over what was on them with White paint then cut out #'s I printed from online and covered the whole plate in mod podge. If you need to stay on budget, enlist a crafty friend and go nuts!!
  10. Congrats now a Riggio!! You can tell you guys had fun! How was the weather? Were you melting at night in your dress?
  11. For brides looking for flower alternatives, I bought these wooden fans here: http://m.paperlanternstore.com/safanwclbox.html Fans cost a buck a piece, I hot glued ribbon to a couple fabric flowers and then attached it to the fan with wire. I think it will be a cute and easy to travel with alternative to a bouquet
