We just had it on the plate it came on and it looked nice. They also provided us with a cutting set.

 

@@rebepax I'm not sure but my guess is that neither a cake stand nor a cake cutting set are provided, as they are items listed for purchase on the Lomas website.

We are planning to bring a cake cutting set and hopefully the cake will look OK just sitting on the table. It's already expensive enough!

Does anyone know the typical ceremony outline for a legal ceremony? I want to include scripture readings and a sand ceremony and I'm wondering how this will go down.

If you choose the legal ceremony you can not add or divert at all to the script. It has to remain exactly as they have it written.

 

I think someone posted the specific ceremony in the official thread- or you can ask for it from your WC but it's very clear you can't add your own touches when choosing the legal version.

We did symbolic and the WC sent us a few different versions that are popular and we chose one and slightly changed it. Not sure on whether you can change the legal one or not.

Hi there lovely brides! I am getting married July 2015 at the Gran Caribe Real Resort in Cancun. I can definitely say looking for a Photographer/Videographer was one of the most challenging things. You look at so many websites of pictures and video's and of course everything looks so beautiful. Then you are reading review after review and looking at pricing and it makes the choices that much harder. If you are looking for a Photographer in Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Riviera Maya I recommend Octavio Montes.

 

In May my fiancé and I went to Cancun to do a site visit and while there we took the opportunity to meet with Photographers/Videographers. After meeting with about 6 different people we decided on Octavio Montes. We were meeting him just for the Photography but, then he showed us his video's and everything was gorgeous which made the decision easier. One company to do handle all our needs. He listened to what we wanted, was open to our suggestions, worked with us on pricing and is offering a 10% off discount to brides. That definitely helped with our budget. Since we have been back he has been responsive, patient and also accepts Pay Pal.

 

I am grateful for these forums because it's hard planning a wedding that you can't see or experience first hand. Hopefully, this information will help someone else get this task crossed off their "to do" list. Take a look at his work on www.OctavioMontes.com. I will be happy to share the pictures and video of my big day!

 

Happy Planning!

Chalonda

Hi Ladies! I know this may be a long shot, but I am looking to use Melissa Mercado as my photographer 12-12-14....any ladies that are getting married this weekend that may be interested in splitting the vendor fee and booking melissa??? 

 

Also, if you are getting married that weekend, I would love to connect.  Perhaps we can share some other decorations for ceremony!


Also....any brides use or have used the included Spoons reservation for up to 30 people as their reception??

Hi

We used the spoon dinner and it was actually up to 40 ppl. It was then $25pp over 40. The food was wonderful. It was a set menu. Not the same food that is served during the normal spoon dinner. Had a soup, salad, chicken or steak and then dessert. They also made a signature drink for the dinner to serve people as they came in. We got married on a Sunday and did the dinner the night before as a rehearsal dinner.

Did you do any type of seating placecards or decorations? 

 

Did you feel like you missed out on any of the traditional receptions stuff?  I was thinking dinner at cocktails from 5-6 and dinner at 6:30.  What did you have your group do for the rest of the evening?

We didn't do seating place cards at the rehearsal dinner but we did at the reception and I highly recommend it. I heard many stories about people holding seats for others and not having enough seats and couples being split up. We assigned the seats and it worked out great and no issues or complaints with the seating.

 

For the rehearsal we brought hand painted maracas that said Mexico on them and one was at every seat. We brought icicle lights for reception. We had 20 something paper lanterns at different sizes and 3 different colors. Different decorations for each table (they were simple). Vases for tables that we put the bridesmaids flowers in.

 

The only thing I feel like we missed out on was we forgot to do the drinking of the champagne together after we cut the cake. We did the introduction of bridal party and groom/bride, traditional first dance, father daughter/mother son dances, speeches/toasts, cutting the cake, garter, tossing of bouquet...etc.

 

I think the time you do things will depend on what time your ceremony is. Our ceremony was at 6 and sunset was shortly after. The reception started at 7 and went to 11. It has to be done at 11. By 11 a lot of people were done. I feel like it was good timing. My husband and I stayed and did 1 last slow dance by ourselves while everyone else who wanted to keep the party going went up to mojito bar to meet us. It was so nice at the end of the night to do a dance all alone and soak it all in. (Picture attached) We then went to mojito bar and there was a live band. They played a song and we entered and everyone blew bubbles and rang bells. It was a blast. We stayed for an hour or so and danced to the band.
