    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,

    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 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 excited

                      My wedding is January 27th .. I am getting nervous. I spoke to Cecilia and I wanted to hire a fire drummer show for 30 minutes during the reception and originally she told me it was $500 and now shes telling me its $1250. UGH!!!
