We are going to use a DJ. Fernanda recommended one to us but he was VERY pricey. So I started searching on this site and found another guy. Here is his website and email:

 

MANNIA - Audio, Video e Iluminación Profesional

manniacancun@hotmail.com

 

We are in the process of signing the contract with him. He has had great reviews on BDW and has been very quick answering all of our questions and sending over the contract.

Opice,

Thank you! If you could take a ton of pics, especially of the terraces and pool decks, that would probably be really helpful.

If I coud find a really good band, I would rather do a band than a DJ but I just can't seem to find one that meets my high expectations. I have also heard goood things about DJ - Cancun Mannia, so if I have to use a DJ I will probably try to use them.

 

Soo, it has been exactly 13 days, and I still haven't heard back from Fernanda!! I resent my original email yesterday, and still nothing. Anyone else having this same problem?

 

Oh and does anyone know what the "bridal carpet" is that comes with the Wedding Packages?? Is anyone even using the Wedding Packages (Lily or Orchid)?

Jessica - any word back from Fernanda? I sent her an email last week and no response yet. I really want to pick a date so I can start planning everything else!!

I finally heard back from her this weekend (it had literally been 2 weeks!)! She said she has been very busy, which I don't doubt.

 

And I'm soooo excited because she gave me the most awesome news - I can have the Mitachi restaurant *exclusively* for my reception - I am soo happy that it worked out the way I wanted it to!! woot.gif

 

Now just got to figure out the details. I'm trying to figure out this whole room block situation thing - I'm not really sure how it works though. Like will the room block guarantee that all your guests rooms are near each other or near yours? What happens, for example, if I block off 15 rooms but don't end up being able to fill them all? confused.gif

I know that you have to book 80% of your rooms in order to avoid paying a penalty. I don't know how much you would have to pay, though. We booked enough that we didn't have to worry about it!

Bad news, girls...

 

Fernanda e-mailed me last night and mentioned that the 15% service charge has been raised to 18%!!! When I signed my contract, it was 15%, so I'm assuming they will honor that. ?!?!?! I e-mailed her back and got an out-of-office reply. She is out of the office today. mad2.gif

That stinks about the increase!

 

I did hear back from Fernanda last night (she always responds late at night!) and the weekend we wanted is completely open so I think we might have finally picked a date - November 8, 2008! I responded this morning so hopefully we can start working on all the other details since its 5 months away!!!

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
