Hi ladies,

 

So I got a response from Xhail about outside vendors and it will be more expensive then we thought (this is other then a photographer). Here take a look at her response:.

 

- What is the cost to bring a vendor onto the property? For example a DJ or Makeup artist?[Xhail Flores] if you bring an external vendor the cost is $90 usd per hour per plug  and a Makeup artist, you must pay a day pass to leave them to come in the resort.

 

All I can say is boo. How many plugs is a DJ going to use lol? I have no idea. haha.

Yes- they had my contact information just in case of any problems, but luckily they had no problems at all. I had forwarded them all the reservation information to take with them for check in as well.

So I just got an email from my TA regarding the curreny that can be used in Mexico. Looks like they made a new policy that says only Mexican pesos can be used in the country now. Just thought I would pass this info along. Here is what the email said:

 

Effective September 14, 2010, all vacationers travelling to Mexico will be required to use Mexican pesos, as it will be the only currency accepted. American and Canadian dollars will no longer be accepted in the country. The use of international credit cards is unaffected as transactions will continue to be processed in Mexican pesos, as per current practice. It is recommended that travellers bring Mexican pesos and/or credit cards to avoid difficulties

I just posted this very thing on my wedding website:

 

 

Mexico announces new, peso-only policy (from the Air Canada website)   Effective September 14, 2010, all vacationers travelling to Mexico will be required to use Mexican pesos, as it will be the only currency accepted.

Sorry, this is exactly what the poster before said!  fryingpan.gif silly me.

But yeah, seems to be so...

When I asked my parents about this, they said "yeah that's what they said last year, but they still take USD's"...so not sure if its an effort to try and stop it or if it's the real deal??? Maybe we should ask the Barcelo??

 

Keep us posted if anyone finds out!

I was wondering if anyone has hired the DJ from the resort.  My fiance really wants to have a DJ but I'm not sure of the quality of the one the resort uses.  If anyone has any opinions please let us know.

 

Thanks,

J

ahh, so excited!  We just heard back from the resort and we have June 25th on hold for our wedding, with the ceremony at 4:00.  I can't wait to send out the invites now and have people start booking their trips!

    • 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
