  1. I've been going back and forth between the wedding coordinator for flowers as well as an outside florists. Everyone has warned me about the high pricing from the resort florist.. and WHOA were they right. My outside vendor fee is low at $150 per vendor and I have already booked the outside florist but I wanted to share with you my experience. I started talking to the outside florist even before I booked the resort since flowers are important to me. He has been very helpful and always responds to his messages. For the resort florist - I have to go through the coordinator so its very di
  2. I wanted to share with you all how I ended up choosing the resort I am getting married in in Cancun. I found this to be the most difficult and daunting part of planning. You all have been so helpful so I wanted to return the favor for any others looking or getting started. I also have more info on my flowers and budget and I will post that separately so people can get an idea of what things will cost. I was very concerned with pricing and I know asking what you paid for your wedding is a little sensitive but I will start a new thread with my wedding flowers cost. I knew I wanted to get

I just copied and pasted it from the email she sent me. http://weddings.palaceresorts.com/sites/default/files/download_pdf/pdf/aditional_services.pdf What hotel is HRH? I am closing in on Dreams Cancun and I'm really hoping it works out. Their outside vendor fee is $150 per a vendor. They charge around ~$120 extra per person if you exceed the 20 people in the package and that covers food, chairs, open bar, plates. I think I have to pay extra for their ceremony chair but not sure yet about that. I was really looking for the Hyatt Ziva beca

  5. @@ljgray1989 Thanks for the info! I feel like those are decent prices. I am looking at Cancun where the hotel strip is at Kulkukan boulevard. It seems that Cancun is more expensive than the Rivieran Maya. Some hotels in Cancun don't offer the free package if you book 10 rooms. Their packages for 20 people are around $3000 but then I'm finding it's about $117 extra per person. The $117 includes the reception and open bar but I am not sure if it includes chairs and setup. This is specifically the Dreams Sands hotel. Of course dj, dance floor is all extra. Other hotels I've looked at
  6. @@acw271011 Thanks so much for the reply. I am based in New york. I don't know what a travel agent does. I usually book my trips through expedia. Does the resort give you this TA? Or do I have to seek one out and pay for it separately? @@vancouverpetunia Thanks so much for the reply. I guess my assumption of it being included is far off. In response to your - don't I need anything else, like decor, etc? Yes!! lol. Again, I assumed that was included. All I wanted was for a beach ceremony with a white canopy, chair, a runner, and flowers (also 2 pillars of flowers at the beginnin
  7. Hi all! I am a newbie here and need some help. I am looking to book a wedding in Cancun in January of 2017. What I want is really simple: 1. a beach ceremony with a white canopy 2. 1 hr cocktail for about 50 people 3. a private reception with a dj and dance floor for about 50 people I have contacted a few resorts and they've bombarded me with information. I was basically asking what I should expect to pay for the above. Most told me to book a package and then add on the extra per person. The extra per person fee is high - around $120 at a few resorts. It seems that its mo

    Disco Movil DJs

    Great job!

    Pros: Music, Communication
    Cons: nothing
    Discomovil did our wedding on January 28 at Dreams Sands in Cancun. Highly recommend. I booked them about 1 week before the wedding for both cocktail and reception services. They had a questionnaire which I filled out and sent over to them. The questionnaire is basically used to help them create a program of your reception. They followed all my recommendations regarding music and added their own touch which fit well with my group. Definitely book them - they are affordable and always respond via

    Best Florist Ever!

    Pros: Price, Work, Quality, Email response, Ease of working together
    Cons: nothing
    Marvin did our flowers on January 28 at Dreams Sands in Cancun.  Loved working with him!  All the reviews are true.  He truly is great to work with.  (I don't know what that one review means about him being rude and unresponsive - I never experienced that with him). From the very beginning he was highly responsive via email (and I'm sure he gets tons of emails). We went back and forth with photos as examples and when I finally settled on a color he offered the best option for flowers to keep the
