Hello ladies!!!

 

I was just wondering if anyone can suggest a good photographer for our wedding. I've just discovered that it is much more justifiable to use an outside photographer.  We are looking for someone who is already situation in PC. Also, I was just wondering if their are any other brides-to-be getting married on May 25th,2012??

 

Thanks so much ladies,

Erika:)

Hi sounds like had a great time Congrats I'm worried about the rain aswell Did they set up the oceana restaurant exactly like how u would have had the portifino terrace set up minus the lanterns? How quick was the transition? Did ur guests have to wait around? How did it look inside the Oceana? Was it fully private or were others in the restaurant aswell? Have any photos? Btw I loved the photo with u and dragging the lanterns soooo cute : )

They set the Oceana up with 3 tables of 10.  We didn't have a table for the cake or the guestbook so I had to scamble around after to try and get my guests to sign the guestbook which was a wedding tree so I actually had to get their thumbprints.  The Oceana is not private we had people at the table next to us which also means no music or dancing.  This was a huge bummer to me because I worked sooo hard on my playlists. The transition was semi smooth I wouldn't say overly quick but it was fast enough I guess. My guests were standing waiting for them to finish the set up.  My bridesmaids put the lanterns I had on the chair backs which was nice and the wedding coordinator put my table lanterns on, other then that she didn't do alot.  We were at the back of the restraunt so we only had people on one side of us.

Hi smtc0245

Besides the rain, your pictures look lovely and it still looks like you were able to make the best of the situation.

I was noticing your lanterns, did you tie ribbons to them that matched the colour of the lantern?

Thanks,

J

    • I'm looking to see if anyone has had a wedding at Dreams Riviera Cancun or any other resorts in Cancun with around 60 guests and could let me know how much they paid TOTAL for the ceremony, cocktail, and dinner reception. This includes flowers, decor, makeup hair, DJ, and all misc.  Thank you!
    • Hello Everyone, I am new here, I heard about this site from a friend of mine that had a destination wedding back in 2012 which was beautiful.  I am leaning towards the DR if I find a place that has all that I am looking for if not Mexico is another great option. Thinking of May 2020 if that is enough time to plan this! I like modern looks, all inclusive for sure.  I definitely want the beach very very close to the pools and rooms, a swim up bar is a must.  I really like the idea of the swim ups in the rooms if possible.  I am going to have friends that bring their kids so it can't be adult only.  I do want to get married on the beach which seems like most of the all inclusive resorts offer. My friend got married at the SENSATORI AZUL BEACH RESORT RIVIERA MAYA and it had all I would want in a resort if anyone has stayed there and has any advice. Thanks for all the help ahead of time.   M&B
    • @JessicaCV - How was your wedding experience? We're getting married there in November - Would love to pick your brain about your experience and the planning process! - Kian
    • They forgot the wedding cake topper   Okay, so no big deal - just a once in a lifetime moment. The upsetting part is the wedding coordinator, Dionne, did not seem at all concerned about the mistake. The only reason we got an apology was because we happened to run into her the night before we left. Our wedding was on Saturday we left Wednesday morning. We were told we could escalate our concern to Riu corporate, the wedding coordinator doesn’t have a supervisor on site. Riu corporate said they did their best and apologized. Brides, go to Jamaica, get married, but do yourself a favor and do not go to a Riu resort, especially not Riu Negril. I am certain there are other resorts that would have been in touch immediately and tried to make up for their mistake. Not Riu.
