wedding was perfect~here is my vendor list

Recommended Posts

My wedding at the marriott casa magna in march was awesome! I wanted to offer my experience in the hopes it might help some upcoming cancun brides. We had 120 guests. If you contact any of these vendors, please tell them that Lauren recommended them, that they did my march 8 wedding.

 

Marriott casa magna:

It was a beautiful hotel…the guests were very happy with our choice (comfy beds, soft towels, et). We got married at the gazebo then moved to an outdoor area for cocktails and dinner, then moved again into an indoor ballroom for deserts and dancing. The food and service were great! The hotel distributed our gift bags as people arrived at no charge. We had 2 other brunches at the hotel and were really pleased with both. The event coordinator who arranges the wedding dates, the wedding contract, and guest rates is josefina luna: mhrs.cunjw.local.sales.mgr@marriotthotels.com Our wedding coordinator was frank, he was awesome! mhrs.cunmx.local.event.mgr@marriotthotels.com

 

Early arrival dinner:

There is a great restaurant across from the Marriott called the shrimp bucket…it is really good food at a reasonable price (and you can walk from the Marriott). The have all you can eat seafood and beer Thursday nights for $25 a person (there are other options for non seafood people). Our guests LOVED this dinner! We had the whole patio to ourselves and it was a blast. Great place to recommend to your guests and could be fun for a rehearsal dinner. We had about 80 that night.

The contact there is: Jordy Mora Brandt Jordy@andermail.com

 

Rehearsal dinner:

Our rehearsal dinner was at the hacienda sisal restaurant. It was in their larger room, buffet style food. It was perfect. The room was gorgeous and the food was great. I donâ€t have their info but I am sure you can find it online.

 

The wedding:

Alcohol: we chose to bring in our alcohol and it was so cheap!! There is a company that will come in and take you order, deliver the alcohol, then take back what you donâ€t use…it was perfect! The company was called La Europea liquor. The hotel just charged a corkage fee for each bottle served. You can also get alcohol at Costco and return.

 

Flowers: our flowers were done by Vanessa. She was great! She was really good at emails back and forth and sending pictures. She really got what I wanted and I was really happy with the flowers. Her prices were good too.

Music:

During dinner we had a trumpet player, Torang. He was great and I got lots of comments about him from our guests. He played really nice dinner jazz and blues (he can play whatever you want)…really talented. To book him you have to go through another woman…here is her contact info:

Dance Band:

We used kiko y carlos as our dance band and I couldnâ€t have been more happy with our decision. They were awesome!!!! Better than most wedding bands I have ever heard! They are really nice to deal with, and it is clear they love what they do. They speak perfect English and know how to entertain and get the party going. My parentâ€s friends and my friends loved them. My husband wanted a dj so I was nervous how the band would go, but he was so happy we went with the band. They know all the great dance songs, and even knew the hora (a jewish song).

Here is their contact info:

Fire dancers:

These fire dancers were awesome!!!! So talented and fun to watch! They were a nice surprise for our guests and totally made the night!

Here is their contact info: The name of the fire dancers are TODOS UNO, main contact ALBERTO CARDENA, email address, laverdadllevaalbien@hotmail.com

 

 

Other tips:

**Be sure to have receipts if you are bringing in a bunch of stuff for the wedding. We brought in all the gift bag stuff and we were questioned at customs. They wanted receipts. You can only bring in $300 worth of merchandise so I had made a lot of fake receipts. They looked at the receipts, but they didnâ€t really care so long as I had receipts.

**as you leave the airport there are coupon books, they are sealed in a clear covering. They have great coupons for lots of restaurants including all of the restaurants at the Marriott. I opened my luggage and threw 70 books to add to my gift bag.

**Costco in cancun has great stuff for gift bags

**I am going to post something about our experience with the traffic police..read it!

**please mention that i recommended them if you contact any of these vendors, i think it is important for them to know that we are connected and a job well done will create more business for them.

 

Please let me know if you have any other questions or want pictures…

Enjoy!

I hope you don't mind me asking but how much did you pay for the fire dancers? This is something I would love but I have no clue how much something like that is.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
