    Just a couple of questions - did Dreams do your flowers? They look awesome, were you happy with them? And secondly, what time was your wedding?

    Thanks again! Get well soon!

    They did my flowers. I brought a color picture I found on the web and just had different color roses. I wasn't charged extra for mine and had to pay for my bridesmaid. The resort has gorgeous flowers all over.

    I originally was going to have the reception at 4pm, but moved it back to 3:30pm after talking to the photographer and wanting more time for pics. However, there was a rain shower right at 3:30 so we pushed it back to 4pm anyways. The picture time was a little squeezed and due to the extreme wind, we didn't walk over to the lighthouse for pictures. :-( However, I loved my Photographer (Cancun Studios) and really think we got some great pics.

      I'm so sorry about the screw-ups Gaby did with your wedding. I read your review (many times) and the video is probably the biggest one.

        Thanks! It is such a bummer. I just found out that my BFF's husband got a video of me walking down the aisle :) And my Mom got a video of our first dance. But there aren't any of the actual ceremony OH WELL! I have amazing pictures to look back on!!! How was it all for you?

          The wedding was wonderful! Weather wasn't the best (had to postpone the wedding 1/2 hour for brief rain shower and it was EXTREMELY windy) but can't control that. Claudia was easy to work with once I got there. I switched my photographer without making prior arrangements and when we sat down, we extended the videographer. The video was AWESOME - I'd recommend extending it instead of the gazebo decor! He came to my room before hand, video'd FI, the ceremony, and most of our pictures. FI spent a good part of yesterday converting it to put on his facebook page. Not sure if you'll be able to see it without being his friend, but here's the link:

          Claudia's mom is sick, so she's been very distracted with that. We had to move my initial session a few days (which I was mad about) because she had to go to the hospital (not sure the problem w/ her mom). A day or so after the wedding, we had our appt to finalize the billing and she called me crying saying she had to leave because of her mom. Someone's wedding was going on at that time too so I felt bad for that bride. She stayed through my reception and there were a few times I needed her to find things / do things.

          Overall, I would also recommend being very organized. I had everything written down and all items labelled in bags (i.e. items for bouquets, sand ceremony, all guestbook items together, etc).

          I wish I could give more details right now, but I'm going to try to get more sleep. I really don't want to be sick - I'm suppose to be going back to work tomorrow and have SO much stuff to do today.
          Welcome back!
          Great video!!! Can't wait to hear more about the detail, rest now, and tell us more later~

            sorry you're not feeling well, but congratulations! everything looked beautiful and thank you SO much for posting the video as i've been dying to see one, especially one that was extended with "video studio by the beach" i've been wondering what exactly claudia meant by that LOL! can i just say HOLY WIND!!! i never imagined the wind getting quite THAT bad! first of all i see now why past brides said you kinda have to get the sound system for the ceremony ... i think without it, no one would have heard anything because that wind was so awful ... and this weekend while dress shopping, my family had just about convinced me to wear a veil, and now i really don't think so! maybe i'll just play it by ear that day? were your other days there that windy?

                Congrats Laurine!!! Welcome back, your video is AWESOME and makes me SO EXCITED. Sorry you don't feel good. :-(

                To all the recent brides-- did they give (or offer to give) you a complimentary room for the groom the night before the wedding?

                (Kat- thanks for the day pass info! Are you saying on non-wedding days that people came in w/o passes?)

                  Just on the wedding day they came in. My photographer came the day after to do the TTD and he just had to get clearance through the security and we didn't pay again.

                    Girls, I am back from my wedding two weeks ago. My wedding was spectacular. Claudia is the sweetes girl. One I learn how to post my video I will post it.

                    The room for the groom, it is on the package. I personally did not ask for one. I book a regular room and they upgrade me to a honeymoon suite.

                      I had tears in my eyes watching the video!! The windy unpredictable weather made it all the more special in the video! Congratulations. I look forward to your pictures.
