  2. Sounds like you had a productive preview visit! Wow, that just makes the fact that Vianey has been so responsive that much more amazing. I was just worried about switching to a private dinner and securing the location. I think that's good, so just waiting until closer to finalize the other stuff with her. We chose Paradise Photo Studio for photography. We fell in love with their work. http://www.paradisephotostudio.com We have a friend who does video editing, so we are going to give him go pro footage and pictures so he can make a highlight video, FH actually suggested this, as I was good with no video! Haha You can see most of the favors and decor on Love & Lace's Facebook page. I might bring some paint pens to customize the maracas, still a fraction of what I was going to pay through Etsy, and I wouldn't mind crafting for a bit poolside.

  3. @@jmartins1223 It's frustrating, but I'm making myself stay positive! Do you have a TA? Mine has been amazing and has good luck in receiving communication from them. I got my welcome bags from Wedding Chicks during a %50 off sale. To put in them, I have room key holders, tumblers, hangover kits, mini tequila bottles, mini vanilla, and some local snacks. I am getting the tequila, vanilla, and snacks from Love and Lace Wedding Decor (check out their Facebook page...also Cancun Brides is a good private group too!) They also have tons of things to rent. I am keeping it pretty simple and bringing table overlays, napkins, and my own centerpieces. Actually using the roses from the included bouquet in my centerpieces, going to bring some filler with me. Also getting maracas as favors from Love and Lace $1.50 and I don't have to bring them with me!! We have a small group (18) so not doing the dj thing, just a Bose speaker and playlists.

  4. Yesterday marked 5 months out. I had been having good luck with Vianey​, however my TA emailed me and said Hyatt contacted her and asked me to wait for them to contact me closer to my wedding, as there was new management. Again. Vianey is my 7th coordinator. I sent Vianey a kind email thanking her for all of her help, because she is truly the first to help me there, and was super efficient. She responded back with a sweet note and said my TA requested that I still work with her, so I'm happy about that. Until then, just more waiting. Just have to stay positive and know in the end, I'm marrying my dude in paradise and everything will work out just fine. We did find our photographer and are in love with her work. Ashley from Paradise Photo Studio has been great to deal with. Also found a lady who rents decor and sells favors/welcome bag items that will meet you outside of the resort to deliver and pick up items. Her husband also runs private charters. So, aside from the ceremony and reception, I'm all set! ???????? Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  5. @@MesaMiso Don't worry, you have plenty of time and it will all come together! We had originally talked about getting Married in November 2016, but it didn't pan out for a few reasons, so I have been searching for things for a long time! We got 3 quotes on rooms, 2 online and one from a local travel agency. We chose Beach Bum because not only was it the least expensive, but I really felt a good connection with my agent, Lisa. I just felt like people depending on us (me hahahahaha) for travel arrangements would just be something I didn't want to deal with. Now, she can arrange flights, but we and many of our guests will book our own flights with miles/points. A travel agent can also help communicate with the wedding department. This has been invaluable since we are on the 6th planner! Lisa got me emails within a day, after I had waited up to 2 weeks. Things are better now, so maybe the changes they made at the end of last year are getting the bugs out. We aren't able to do a preview, so that kind of adds to the amount of questions I have. We aren't having a DJ , it's just not "us." One of the reasons we chose a destination wedding is to avoid many of the expected or traditional wedding things! We're using the resort's vendor for lighting (we're having the reception by the fire pits), I'm bringing decor, so that's not an issue. The place where we are still undecided is photography. Photopro "seems" OK, but we're still thinking we might splurge and get an outside vendor. Have you made any progress? Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  6. @@MesaMiso Congratulations to you too! I commented some to you on another thread about my wedding planner anxiety. ???? The other planning stuff is going well. We sent out invitations in November with a deposit due date of March 3. Planning on sending a post card to those who have made comments but haven't RSVP'd or made a deposit a couple weeks prior to that. I will not harass some family members who we *had* to invite, but knew they wouldn't/couldn't come. Hahahahaha We are doing a dia de los muertos theme and people really loved the invites! We're doing teal and orange, not gothic or Halloween looking. We're only having a maid of honor and best man. Our dresses are bought, the guys will be figured out this summer. I bought oot bags from wedding chicks on black Friday for 50% off. We're expecting a small group, so I just got 24. Planning on tumblers, key card holders, hangover kits etc. But I'm waiting until we have a definite number. Then Etsy will be in the cards constantly, because I am not a crafter. I used a hand stamp on the back of the invites and that was stressful. Hahah Also ordering flowers from Etsy, I love sola flowers, so I hope they make it there in 1 piece! I found metal buckets at Target at Halloween with a cut out sugar skull and a papal picado type border. I'm going to spray paint them and use them for centerpieces with flowers and tea lights. Also getting mini sugar skull pinatas for the table and doing custom maracas for favors. We used Beach Bum Vacations for our room block. Lisa is great. She's been able to communicate with them better than me. I'm going to be patient until I have a number, and then be more aggressive in getting everything in writing to change our reception. How's your planning going? How many people are you expecting? Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  7. @@MesaMiso We're November 3, so we will see you there! I have been assigned yet another wedding coordinator, who also doesn't return emails. I've decided to let it go until my deposits are done on March 3, so I have a definite number. Seriously frustrating. My problem is we originally signed up for the semi-private reception at a restaurant and decided we want to have a private one. We haven't been able to get solid answers on price, venue, how the menu works, or anything. We are trying to be patient, and even considered just losing our deposit & moving on, but it seems like most resorts get more responsive closed to the date. Hoping this is the case, because it really looks like a great resort. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
