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

    • Hello would-be-brides! I'm Gaurav, and I've been shooting weddings for over 5 years for my wedding photography business - I Don't Say Cheese. I specialize in candid photography and take great pleasure capturing the story and the essence of love that couples share. I've been shooting around India and have done many destination weddings. However, I would LOVE to cover some international weddings and build my portfolio. It doesn't hurt that I absolutely adore traveling! Back home I charge $3500 for a day's shoot but I'm offering my services for FREE for a chance to shoot your wedding.  You can see my work on my website and on my instagram page. I'd love to discuss the possibilities with you so feel free to reply here or contact me through the website/instagram. You can see a sample set of a wedding I recently shot in Kerela, India here. Wishing you lots of love and luck for your big day!  
    • I'm looking to see if anyone has had a wedding at Dreams Riviera Cancun or any other resorts in Cancun with around 60 guests and could let me know how much they paid TOTAL for the ceremony, cocktail, and dinner reception. This includes flowers, decor, makeup hair, DJ, and all misc.  Thank you!
    • Hello Everyone, I am new here, I heard about this site from a friend of mine that had a destination wedding back in 2012 which was beautiful.  I am leaning towards the DR if I find a place that has all that I am looking for if not Mexico is another great option. Thinking of May 2020 if that is enough time to plan this! I like modern looks, all inclusive for sure.  I definitely want the beach very very close to the pools and rooms, a swim up bar is a must.  I really like the idea of the swim ups in the rooms if possible.  I am going to have friends that bring their kids so it can't be adult only.  I do want to get married on the beach which seems like most of the all inclusive resorts offer. My friend got married at the SENSATORI AZUL BEACH RESORT RIVIERA MAYA and it had all I would want in a resort if anyone has stayed there and has any advice. Thanks for all the help ahead of time.   M&B
