  1. Good Morning ladies, I am new to this forum! I am getting married at RRC November 12, 2016! I was looking for some advice on tipping the vendors! We are having 76 guest attend. We decided to go for the symbolic ceremony on the beach, beach cocktail hour and beach reception. We have a violinist for the ceremony, 3 piece guitar trio for cocktail hour, DJ and cigar roller for the reception. We also have photographer and videographer. I was just wondering who, if any of the vendors, did you tip, and around how much? I am reading different DW forums about tipping and the reviews are very conflicting. Please help! xo, Leighann
  2. Hi Ladies, I am new to this forum! I am getting married at RRC on November 12, 2016! Just a few short weeks away! I wanted to give you girls some insight into my planning process: We have 76 guest attending our wedding so we opted for the "free" wedding package and decided to add on from there. We chose to do the symbolic ceremony on the beach ( NOT DOING BLOODWORK!!! ) with a beach cocktail party and a beach reception. We opted for the "family style" dinner and I asked my wedding coordinator Sofia if I could mix and match between the traditional and Mexican menu options, which was not an issue, that option was $49pp which includes 3 hours of open bar. From there any additional fees came with whatever we wanted to add on, for example; dance floor, DJ, candles, flowers, photographer, videographer, lounge area...etc. To be honest, I feel like the vendors are a little expensive, especially when you don't get to choose who they are. The hotel also charges for extra's such as lighting ($150 per strand of 20 lightbulbs) we couldn't bring ourselves to do it! We are not cheap people, but $300 to create an X over the dance floor is just insane! I am looking forward to writing how my experience was once we return home! If anyone has any other planning questions please feel free to write me back! Best wishes & happy planning ladies!

    MVP Hair and Makeup Artistry

    Amazing Hair & Makeup

    Pros: Professional, educated, AMAZING!
    Cons: Nothing!
    Let me start by saying how truly AMAZING Melissa and Team MVP are at what they do! When it came to my wedding day, after the dress, the most important thing to me was hair & makeup. As a New Yorker, I knew finding someone in Mexico who would share my vision might be difficult, until I came across MVP! It takes an enormous amount of trust to book a hair & makeup artist, for the biggest day of your life based solely on pictures. But the work Melissa and Team MVP do, truly speaks for it
