    Hi chong,

    Since you are a past bride I just wanted to ask you what extra decor should be brought to the resort. I am just now starting to think of decorations and things extra I should buy. Any suggestions, I'm not the best planner and it seems everyone on here is.

    I have to say... the BEST part that my guests cannot stop talking about is FOOD. We decided to have the family style meal and oh boy... there was soooo much food and soooo delicious! If you can afford it, I highly recommend this meal option. Even though it's the most expensive option per person... it was soooo good and everyone LOVE it. This option includes robster, shrimp, kobobs, chicken, salmon, steak, ribs, potatoes, corn, etc!!! you cannot get robster from any of the restaurants at the resort without paying some kind of additional money. i hope my guests took some pictures of the food.

     

    i am only around this weekend and have to leave for another business trip on monday - friday. if you have any questions, please email me at chongmclaren@gmail.com.

        Hi ladies, I'm after some advise.

        Photographers- who are you using and what coverage time are you having? I'm really not sure how long they are needed for can you help??

         

        Also does anybody know the dimensions for the sheer for the gazebo near pier? As i'm thinking of taking my own, to get the right colour and save money, Is anyone else doing this?

         

        What other things are people taking to cut the costs?

         

        Chong can you send me the templates- michellec76@btinternet.com

         

        Thanks ladies


        On August 2nd at 3pm at Sensatori Resort, Riviera Maya, Mexico I marry my best friend.

            Herbie,

            A complete coverage can be done in 7-8 hours..(five hours is just right) You will have covered your getting ready, sessions, ceremony and at least 2 hours of the party...

            good luck!!

            Gonzalo

              We are bringing a photographer with us. And I believe the plan is to cover for about 10 hours, and a TTD session later in the week.

               

              The gazebo requires 2 sheets. EACH measuring 12m x 1 1/2m. I thought about bringing my own, but after pricing it at the fabric store, I might have saved $10, but then I still had to transport it. So we are planning on renting now.

                My mom is a photographer as is 2 of my guests so I decided to go with Cairbe (which is one of the resorts recommended) I thought some of their stuff was great and some eh but with my mom I know I will get the candids I want. My FI isn't a big picture taker either so Candids are the way to go for us! I got them for 4 hours.

                 

                I agree with Murmel. I priced out the the sheers and is was only $25 cheaper and as big as they are if I wanted more than 2 they would have taken up their own suitcase. I was pisst I have to rent them for $150 each but I just took it on the chin for that. I was so upset on spending so much money on something people are going to look at for 30 minutes BUT I want the pics to look decent.

                 

                I saved money with flowers. I found some recommended Etsy sellers that do Real Tough and since I only need a brides bouquet and some boutenierres (sorry abut the Spelling) I am going to get them here and carry them on the plane in a hat box.

                 

                I opted for no cake and got the private dinner package with a bunch of desserts. I figure we can do something with that.

                 

                I haven't really thought about my tables at the reception yet but I will probably go super simple.
