I am so sorry that you are feeling so stressed out and feeling like you are getting walked all over...Like everyone says on here...It always works out  I am sure your wedding will be beautiful.    Does the DJ not provide the speakers?  Or are the speakers and microphone for something else?  

Yes the dj supplys the speakers and mic, but if you opt out of the DJ you have to pay for them on thier own, so for two hours it would be $180 vs the $420 for the Dj for 2 hours

I had thought it was $70 per hour for the speaker rental but Jazmin keeps telling me its $180 per hour!!!!! So for two hours I would be looking at $360 for the speaker rentals and $420 for a DJ....... Anyone else get quoted this? I had thought she had made a mistake and confirmed these prices :(

Hi other principe brides... I realize I am getting married in a year but I can't get these people to answer me at all. Did they make you wit too three months befor the wedding befor they started the planning? I feel like there are 8 milliion things to do that I can't make happen until I know what we are doing for reception and flowers and ceremony place etc. Has anyone else been dealing with this and can someone please tell me what the time lines were like?

I'm going through a wedding planner in a sense, and my wedding is the week before yours, and I haven't had any contact with mine yet. I don't really know who my wedding coordinator is at the moment, but I'm going to give it some time.

So do you have any idea where your reception or ceremony or anything is?

I think the ceremony location is based on which part of the resort you're staying in. If you're Akumal, then it's 1 or 2 specific locations you can choose from. Check out this thread here. Trisha has photo tours of the resorts and some of the wedding ceremony locations.

She also has a lot of other information on there, that might help. I'm staying at the Tulum so I believe my wedding ceremony will be held at the gazebo. I could be wrong, but I'm just going to wait for now, and plan my other things for now. Since I don't know the number of guests attending, I'm just brainstorming ideas for OOT bags, my ceremony programs and scripts, and deciding on the centerpieces for the reception (since I will most likely choose one of the restaurants at the resort).

I sqaured away my ceremony site and my reception site and then didn't hear anything for months.  But I needed an outdoor private reception and I know that they only allow one per resort a night (and up to three weddings per day) so I didn't want someone else to get it.

 

Try the emails in the link futuremrswarner provided, and if those don't work... call.

 

Oh, and I didn't book those two things, my travel agent did.  Travel agents are like gold.

    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)
