I had the ultimate package so hair and makeup was included, she did an absoultely fantastic job, I told her what I liked and she did exactly that only much better then I could have done.  everybody commented on it.

In regards to the menu, we had somebody allergic to seafood, so the soup / salad / desert had to be the same but we were allowed to have individuals choose from a choice of 2 main courses and we had to provide Cecilia with these chooses 1 week prior.

 

Hope this helps,

Tori

 

Hi Tori,

 

Have you posted a review yet? I am looking forward to reading it! :)

Also did you see her selection of flowers in a catalog? Did she have alot of selections? This is what I am most nervous about!

If I haven't said so yet, congrats on your wedding Tori!  You look fantastic.  I love the dress (the collar is so chic!)  I'm so glad it was a great experience for you!  Congrats Mrs!

I can not say thank you enough girls for the all the information you have provided on here. I am getting married at Dreams may 24, 2011 and feel so at ease reading about Juan and the photography i was really stressing about that. Also about how good Claudia is. I am getting so so excited.

 

Can anyone tell me how much it was to get their MOH and BM hair/makeup done?

 

How about the cost of BM bouquets was it worth it?

I am trying to find someone who can tell me about the handmade banana leaf picture albums they sell!!  I saw them last year in the bahamas, i'm sure they sell them in mexico too.  I really want to do these as my wedding favors, but i'm not sure if they are easy to find, or if they even have them around cancun.  Anyone who has seen one of these or knows anything about it please help!! It will make me crazy to wait all the way until i get there and HOPE i find them, considering trying to find a way to get them before we leave, although i haven't had much luck on the internet.

Hi ladies..i haven't posted anything lately. I have been so busy with the holidays my sons sports etc. I am glad to see all the latest brides have had beautiful weddings. I was going to use the sound system for my entrance. I think i changed my mind, has anyone used the flautist and violinist for the ceremony?? My wedding is 4 months away so I am starting to really get things done. I am a very laid back bride..i think i am missing the bride gene undecided.gif which is why i am leaving all the small details for the last minute. I also want to know if anyone knows where i can see pictures of the lounge furniture for the cocktail hour? Does anyone have pictures of the centerpieces they offer through the florist the hotel uses. I have asked Cecilia in previous email but she has yet to send me any. On my site visit i saw some nice ones but it was in a book of pictures and was wondering if anyone has actual pictures of flowers at actual weddings? Thanks in advance ladies. Thanks to all the brides who have posted reviews in the past few months..they are great and you guys all look beautiful! Starting to get excitedwoot.gif

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
