Gotcha... I'm in the US, but will still check to see what we have here. My "boss" is in Missasauga (I know I butchered that), but I know he won't shop there for me...haha!

Bummer!! I love the crystal blue water...that's really why we chose Riviera Maya. I'm sure it will still be pretty, but not 100% what we wantedsad.gif

Regarding the blue water. It looks very grey in the pictures because the sky was overcast, which will reflect into the water. The water is usually quite blue, although not quite as stunning as you might see in other areas. This is due to the coral reef that is directly in front of the resort. Hope that helps.

Quick question for everyone....does anyone have any pictures of just plain old chairs for the ceremony?  Is everyone choosing chair covers and bows? I want them...but $9 per chair just seems crazy and like the hugest waste of almost $1000. 

 

Does anyone think the absence of chair covers and bows will take anything away awy or am I being stupid for choosing this to obsess about today???

I particularly like the white chairs without covers but that is just me.

I ordered bows from Linen table cloth . com. 

way cheaper then renting and then u can sell if u wish.

I was actually going plain until my sister X that.  I think plain is beautiful too.  As I keep reminding myself:  are guests really going to remember this???  Money is best spent on other things in my opinion!

Just walk along the beach north (left if you are facing the water) about 500 yards. There is no coral there, but stunning white sand going into the water...creating the super blue effect you are looking for!

We are not covering the chairs or using bows. I like simple! We'll have pictures for you in a few weeks.

I contacted DJ Doremixx and it's $800 plus the $500 outside vendor fee and they will play for 5 hours.  So that's definitely cheaper than the Lomas DJ!

Thank you!


 


 


I've heard great things about him (them). I want 5 hours as well...it's cheaper to go with them for 5 hours PLUS the $500 fee than it is to do the $1500 package with the resort? That gives me hope!

Thanks!!

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
