    Thanks Miriam!!!

     

    My legal wedding is on Friday...totally going in my work clothes, not making a big deal, not even exchanging rings.....want Mexico to feel like the real deal!

    :)

    The beach really wasn't too busy during our cocktail reception. (we also got married in January, and most people find it cools off late afternoon and leave the beach) Plus the staff set up cocktail tables and steer other guests around the area, so it feels a little more private. The waiters and bartender were fantastic!

     

    The amp worked so well for our group. We didn't expect it, but there was a staff member handling the amp/ipod the whole time. So during dinner, he just played our Dinner playlist. And we had a number of speeches during dinner, so he just faded the music out, let the MC/guests speak, and then faded the music back on. Same thing after dinner, he just started our Dance playlists, and when people wanted to use the mic, he just faded the music. It worked out wonderfully! And everyone, since we had a large party, could hear the speeches/music.

     

    Bouquet....here was my only slight disappointment in the wedding. I had wanted specific colors (didn't care about flower types, just the colors). It was to be a tribute to my mom (she could not attend due to illness). Anyway I wanted to have matching colors to her bridal bouquet. So I sent photos and had them list the colors in the detail sheet (purple, pink and white). Anyway I ended up with pink, different pink and white. Still beautiful flowers...but my only disappointment! But my bridesmaids came to the rescue, they ran around the resort, found a bush with pretty little purple flowers, plucked some and inserted them into my bouquet

    Technically no. But play dumb...do not tell your WC about this plan. And then when you arrive at the resort talk with the onsite coordinators. Many brides, myself included, leave items behind (I left 8 vases there!) The only thing is, 1) be prepared to pay a small rental fee (which the price my guess will be completely random, depending on who your onsite WC is); 2) the vases may not be what you expect, ie. if you want square and get round; 3) they may not all match, depending on how many you need. But what I do know is the onsite WC will bend over backwards to make it the wedding of your dreams, so to help with this little vases issue should be easy for them!

    (in the meantime, if they can't help you, I think it's in my review, but in Cancun there is a party supply place where we bought 8 vases for $12 US total) 

    I would think bubbles should work. You just have to blow with the wind, not into the wind LOL!

    I would bring down small bubble containers for the kids (not just your niece...) and it should be fine. You can find small bottles of bubbles usually at the dollarstore.

     

     

    Someone asked about the packages. We ended up selecting the "free package" and added on items. It still was cheaper for us in the end and we had what we wanted. Be sure to really see what is included in each package and what you will or will not use.

     

    Melissa - less than 2 weeks! I am so excited for you

      Hey Everyone!

      The count down is now 150 days!   I am having my shower next weekend and then its back to wedding planning.

      I'm using Claudia Rodriguez photo-anyone worked with her? She is one of the preferred vendors that wasn't on the original list. We are thinking of getting the mariachi band for the cocktail hr.  Wer using a DJ, whatever one the resort recommends.

      Lomas and flowers: Okay so I looked at the lomas website and I think I picked out my bouquet (im going to order shells and a few real touch flowers from etsy.com to add to the bouquet)  But I am not impressed with their centerpieces. Is it me or are they totally overpriced?? 3 glass vases for 100 to rent??? I think Im better off going to the dollar store. Anyone have any ideas for original but not costly centerpieces?

      Oh forgot my main question: anyone know the table dimentions? for the round tables?

       

      Thanks! :)

        Are you sure Claudia is included on the preferred list?  Last I checked she was preferred, but only at El Dorado....not Azul...I would LOVE to use her...do you have anything in writing that says that?

        Please let me know :)

            Does anyone have a sample symbolic ceremony script?  My WC sent me one, but it is very religious and not exactly what I'm looking for.  Just need at least an outline to work with bc I have to get my ceremony figured out and off to the girl who is doing my programs.  I'm down to a month now and just trying to figure out all the hard stuff (for me), like writing the ceremony and figuring out the music.

             

            Congrats October ladies!!!  I never thought we'd get here!  Can't wait to see how your weddings turn out!!

              You are welcome! I remember 2 weeks out.  So much to do, but so exciting!  I didn't meet with Ivan prior to the wedding, but it was still the busy season at that time.  I met him when he showed up at our room to take pictures.  I really did not request a style because I like his "style."  Through the emails, he learned that I was a very sentimental and emotional person, and I really feel he captured the sentiment and emotions of not only us, but all of our guests. The only thing I would suggest is making sure there is enough time to get photos with you and your wedding party on the beach if that is important to you.  My bridal twin, Shani, got married 2 hours after we did, so we had to get out of the way so they could set up for her wedding.  There are no individual pics with me and each of my bridesmaids on the beach.  f.  We also do not have a large group picture with everyone that attended the wedding.  We had that shot for our welcome party, and I liked it a lot.  Just some thoughts.  Like I said before though, Ivan is a very nice man, and I am sure he will make all of your dreams come true.  You are going to have a great wedding and best wishes for a wonderful life together.

              What did you tell Ivan exactly about the style of pics you wanted?  Did you meet up with him prior to the big day?

               

              I really like your pics, you looked beautiful!

              :)

                We're not making a big deal out of our legal wedding either for the same reason, and we don't want anyone to know! :)

                THANK YOU SOOO MUCH! SOO BEAUTIFUL! I JUST RECEIVED MY WEDDING DETAIL SHEET SO I WILL DEF FIND OUT IF HE IS STILL ON THE PREFERRED VENDOR LIST. THANKS AGAIN!
