          Thank you! I'll be getting married the end of June. I'll be there from June 17-24. Perhaps I'll see you there!

          Awesome idea to have your engagement pics taken while you are there!

            So you are going now and then going back for your wedding in 2 months? Wow!! :)


            I need to get my final stuff in and I am so frazzled!

            So does anyone know- Can the Mexican Trio be used during the Cocktail hour or does it have to be during the reception?

            Also, does the solo musican have to be duing the ceremony or can it be used during the reception?

            Anyone have the Lux package which includes photo and video, are you going to still use this so it isn't wasted, even if you hired outside vendors?

              We're using our Trio during the cocktail hour. Just let your WC know that's when you want them. Not sure on the solo musician.

              I'm using the video portion of the package but not the photo part. I wanted my photographers pictures throughout the entire day plus I didn't want either one to interfere with each other. It totally sucks it's wasted money but what can you do!

                Also, what is everybody doing for welcome parties?? I think that it's ridiculous that in order to reserve at one of the restaurants that it's $15 a person. It's an all-inclusive so I don't understand that at all!

                Sorry I had to vent.
                Hi Chicago

                We are using Nora Bohanon, who I actually found somewhere else and now she has a listing on this site! Shes awesome to work with, LIVES in Chicago and loves traveling to Cancun. Her prices were pretty great when we booked, so imagine they are still pretty good.

                For a welcome party, we are just having everyone meet in the lobby bar around 6pm the first night for "drinks and hellos" then everyone can go have dinner on their own at all of the restaurants. We were going to do a private cocktail party, but they wanted $40 per PERSON, drinks only. These are all guests of the resort anyway. I tried to neg with them to get it down to 15-20 pp and it was a no-go, so informed them that 50 guests would be meeting in the lobby bar at that time and they may want to make sure they are staffed for it.

                  Awesome! That would work great! You get the Trio for 1 hour so it would be perfect to do during the cocktail hour and not have to worry about a playlist, plus it would be entertaining for the guests...

                  I have a video person too, I don't want to use either for the package because I am worried they will interfere with my "better" vendors, ugh.. I hate the wasted stuff! Like I don't think we are doing the face saver thing for FI either, I heard they suck and FI is scared they will cut him too! lol Oh well!



                  Just curious when people are opting to do their couples massages and mani-pedi and private beach dinners (if you have the lux package)... I am thinking the dinner after the wedding sometime during the week...

                    We paid a $500 deposit up front and the rest is due 60 days before since she is travelig from the states.
