Pricing starts at $175 per set and delivery will be on top of that. they can also have made pillows in your colors- pillows will range from$15-30 depending on sizing and fabric.they also offer rentals and complete wedding coordination

1 set are 2 sofas, 2 ottomans y 1 table you can seat about 8-12 people depending on size of people and how you are using them. Delivery would be $75 usd. We can also have pillows made in your colors. Pillows range from $15-40 depending on size and material.

Marvin from Maya Diseno is great there is also Euphoria Eventos Y Arte Floral Euforia Cancun Wedding Planner - Outdoor Events and Lighting Design They are a bit pricier but do amazing work
Thanks, jesmcan. I just emailed them as well for a quote.

As far as music, we are wanting more relaxed music, (not as classical although Ave Maria is a beautiful song!) so I was thinking something like a guitar cover of "Here comes the sun" by the beatles. Thinking I may just have the soloist play before we all come in and use tracks if they are going to be difficult about it....

Thanks to EVERYONE for all the input. I think I would be going absolutely nuts right now if I had to rely on the Michigan WC's for everything.....

Dianep- I have been in contact with the WC's at the resort for a while now. Michele said that I could pay when I got down there, which I had never heard before. Again, Im keeping all my emails so if they try to pull something I will raise h*ll!! Im also trying to keep in contact with her several times a week so they can let me know if Im missing anything. OH, and thanks for your input on the lounge furniture. I don't want my 50 guest to have to stand all night so I hope they keep the tables!!

I had to request my ivoice multiple times around 45-40 days out. The manager Carole seemed quite concerned my payment wasn't in yet...so I kept asking for an invoice so I could acually pay it.. oh my. hahaha. It was after my payment was recieved that I was given the name of my onsite coordinator. Just a heads up, the invoice does say that the wedding can be cancelled if not paid 30 days in advance. Though, I am pretty sure each wc does things a bit differently depending on who you have! I was happy to pay to free me from that silly office!

does anyone know how much extra it costs to extend the reception and what is the max time we can extend it to. I have the Luxury package and want to extend the reception to 4 hours. Or, can we push back the start time of the reception? It just seems pretty retarded that my reception will be ending at 9:00 p.m.!

 

Also, has anyone gone with paying extra for the resort's centerpieces? I really can't be bothered to lug candles, etc down with me - the added weight to the luggage is something that I don't want to deal with (likely cause I won't have any weight allowance left, lol)

Mine's over at 9 too! Depending on my mood and if I still feel like partying, I was thinking everyone that feels like it could head to a local bar and continue the celebration. Senor Frogs? Carlos & Charlies? We'll see. I have a TTD session the next morning so I bet I end up crashing haha! :)

I'm paying for centerpieces cause 1. I do not have a creative bone in my body and 2. like you I just don't want that much more stuff to lug down there. I'm already bringing an extra suitcase just for OOT bag stuff so I really didn't want to bring extras for ceremony/reception stuff. Linens and flowers I'm just paying the resort. I don't really care at this point they already put me through enough!

We are starting the ceremony at 4 and then doing a cocktail hour. We are only doing a semi private 1 1/2 ceremony. So our ceremony will be over at 730! I plan to get a white cocktail dress to change in to and we'll all plan somewhere to go after the wedding is oveer.

The max time for the garden is 10pm and beach 11pm. I think it is $20 for non resort and $10 for resort guests for the extra hours.

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win.
