          We used the resort DJ and were quoted $210/hr for 3 hours (not sure if that's exactly what we were charged since I never did see a final copy of our bill!). We were happy with him but a bunch of our group scaned his laptop while he was playing and were selecting songs all night so we probably could have gotten away with just renting the sound equipment and using an ipod for cheaper.

            i have no idea if they were long stem or short. sorry. you can ask your wedding coordinator she probably would know.

            good luck

              i have a template that i made to email guests (they could print) that i sent before the trip.

              it's like a 'welcome/what to bring' newsletter with info about the resort etc.

              pm if you would like a copy

                Quick question for all of you recently married....how much did you tip your wedding coordinators? Just trying to factor in our budget. Does 100 seem reasonable?

                Did you pay for your blood tests at the clinic? And I'm assuming that everything else was on your bill at check out?

                Also for those of you that had a DJ instead of using an ipod....did the money go to the wedding coordinator for her to pay him or did you pay him directly yourself?

                Thanks! And I'm sure that there will be more questions to come seeing October is approaching faster then I thought it would be!
                you have to pay cash at the clinic for the blood tests. they say $90usd each...but we couldn't get any money out of the USD ATM in the Coba lobby so we had to get pesos out the ATM at the hacienda. I can't remember what the amount was in pesos, but they will let you know. it's really quick and easy.

                  Just checking in ladies... sorry i've been MIA... since we've been back we've decided to put our house up for sale and start searching for new houses... it's kept me busy. I haven't forgotten about my review either. it's on a jump drive at work... ugh i need to get it up soon! Hope you all are doing well and planning is going smoothly! Any questions just ask!

                    i tried to upload the template but it says it's too big for here.

                    so if anyone else wants it just let me know. it has a map attached to it too.

                      Anyone who got married and stayed at Tulum and did their dinner at la gran tortuga... did you girls choose the set menu or do the rodizio style?
                      So hard to decide!!!
                      THANKS :)
