I was wondering if you could tell me how much it was to hire Kiko and Carlos band. I'm trying to get a quote from them but wanted to be able to compare their quote with what other people have paid. Also, did you have the whole band? They offered to have the whole band vs. only 3 people. Thanks a lot.

First of all....like others have said, don't stress, your wedding will be great!
Originally we were told that all of our guests would be in the same building...but that wasn't the case. Luckily it didn't matter, we all set up times to meet, and ran into each other...so don't worry if that happens to you. All of our guests were staying at the Palace. The hotel was beautiful, food was great, and everyone had a great time!
I had been communicating with Gabriela by email before we arrived, and Karen was our coordinator there. Karen was fabulous. She did her best to get us our perfect wedding. She was very nice, and super helpful. She was able to get us all into the Brazillian restaurant for the night before our wedding too...which was nice.
It POURED rain on our wedding day. I wasn't too stressed about it, and I'm happy I wasn't. We had the ceremony inside by the gazebo, and everyone still thought it was beautiful. We got some great pictures too! The reception was inside, we had the mint breeze package anyway, so that was fine! It was nice, and we had lots of fun. The food was fabulous. The flowers were PERFECT, I loved them so much. The cake was nice and simple. Our reception room was decorated exactly how I had asked! We used an Ipod for the music and danced like crazy. It was soooo much fun! Karen said I was one of the most laid-back brides she'd met...I didn't have schedules or anything, we just went with the flow, and it worked for us.
We had chosen Cecilia Dumas and she was amazing at writing back to us via email before the wedding. We booked her and her assistant a room for the night of the wedding, and we had no problems with doing that. Unfortunately, two days before our wedding, Cecilia had a family emergency and had to fly to Argentina. She called us, and we spoke to her while she was at the airport. She set up another photographer for us named Alberto Alvana from Cancun weddings Cancun Wedding Photography
We felt so bad for poor Cecilia. Anyway, Alberto was fabulous. He took so many beautiful pictures, and even laid down in the water to get some good shots. He took pictures for several hours on our wedding day, and the next day we had him for the TTD. We ended up just taking pictures in the sun the next day, and didn't really trash my dress at all. I am soooooo happy with our pictures. Cecilia ended up editing them for us so that she was still a part of it since we hired her. I would recommend either of these photographers to anyone...I can't speak highly enough of them.
It was a beautiful day, and an amazing vacation. I wish all of you very happy weddings too!!!
