We are planning on going to the Hacienda because there will only be about 15 of us......but now I'm wondering if this is possible. Someone mentioned that you can do this only after midnight?? Oh well, I'm sure we will find somewhere to get our groove on!
Yup...that was me. I asked Jazmin about booking it for a couple hours before it opened and she said no...and that it opened at midnight for everyone. I know someone else who did book it, so not sure if policy has changed or it is because Thursdays are the fiesta night or something at the resort so something is already going on there.

Kiera - welcome back! Congrats:) Thanks for the info....they just had speakers there to use? There are going to be about 40 of us, so I don't want to go too cheap and have no dj and then no speakers by the poolsad.gif

Have no fear they have speakers and they work really well. They also set up a stand that had coloured lights on just like at a club or something. The rental was $20 USD per hour. Much more cost effective then a DJ.

Here is a picture of us dancing.

And, I couldn't resist...my niece decided she would show off her break dancing skills when Beastie Boys, Intergalactic came on. She was also a fan of the microphone and kept running up and saying "I love Mexico!".

I have also posted a review here, http://bestdestinationwedding.com/fo...ictures-51767/. Feel free to ask all the questions you want. I know that I've left a bunch of stuff out.

I also wanted to mention that there is a cost to use the Hacienda on Thursday's, Mexican Night (not sure about the other nights). When I was planning the details with Karla this was originally what I wanted to do but when I found out it was $15 pp I decided to do the private cocktail reception. At $8 pp plus the $40 for their equipment the whole 2 hours cost us under $200.

Nope no wedding crash. Its weird, I thought I would feel different after saying "I do" and wearing an extra ring, but I feel the exact same. Like the whole thing was no big deal. I guess that can be attributed to the fact that we've been together for 7 years and already lived like we were married.

 

Here are some pictures the fam got that I've posted on facebook. I can't wait to see the ones the photographer got.

Hi Keira: I am new to this site and thanks for the review. I have a question about the cake. We are wanting to have the 3 milk cake but have read some posts saying it was really gross. What kind of cake did you have? Also did the resort do your flowers? Did you bring your own candles for the cake table? I will probably think of more questions to ask you. You looked really beautiful and loved your wedding cocktail dress!!!!

You meantioned that it ws the shortest ceremony ever.................

How fast was the ceremony? Was it personal or should a couple write our own vows to make it more personal.

We chose the tres leche (3 milk cake) and it was really good. Our family and friends enjoyed it too. It was moist and creamy and tasted like it was fresh out the oven. The only thing we didn't like was the fondant, but it wouldn't be a wedding cake if it didn't have that on top. Just peel it away and he the good stuff. :-)

As for flowers, I'm not a big fan. I had my bouquet made out of buttons, my bridesmaids carried parasols and the boutonnieres were made of feathers. If you want flowers I would find a picture of what you want and send it to your WC to see if it is possible to make there and what the extra cost might be, if any. The pictures that they have of flowers are quite outdated and IMO a little lackluster.

The only things I brought with me were hand fans and candy favours. All the other things were provided by the resort (chair sashes, flower petals, candles etc.)

Now for the ceremony. I'm pretty sure it was about 15 minutes long including signing everything. It wasn't really personal and there weren't an vows. The judge read a story about what marriage should be like, we put rings on and said "I do", signed and thumb printed, and it was done. I did bring my own written ceremony with me but Karla said what the judge had was really pretty so we went with that. I advise you to write your own and send it to your WC before hand so they can pass it along to the judge. You might even need to have it translated to spanish first.

Phew that was long winded. Hope I answered your questions. If you have any more just holla.

Just read your review Keira and got an extra big surge of excitement!!

 

One question: were you able to select a color for the chair sashes or do they only come in white?

 

Thanks!

    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
