Congrats ShellK!! Glad to hear the weather gave you a break for the reception. The sky looks awesome though in the beach pic! Did that bouquet come with your wedding package or was it extra?

Welcome back MRS Shellk!!!! Your pictures are beautiful! Despite the rain, the dramatic skyline is very sexy!

 

I'd like to hear about your meeting with the wedding coordinators: was it difficult to make your decisions on the spot?

 

Dinner: where did you guys eat? Recommendations?

 

Music when walking down the aisle. Recommendations?!

 

WELCOME HOME!!!

I walked down the ailse to Canon in D and after the ceremony Better Together by Jack Johnson was playing. Ael has a good selection of songs to pick from if you do not want to bring your own music.

 

As for Food, here's my thoughts...

Here’s my thoughts on the restaurants…

 

Chili’s – Steak House – Favorite!!!

 

The sea and land (lobster and steak) was delicious!!! I always got 2 lobster tails! I like my steak med-rare and it was cooked perfectly every time!!

 

The baked Alaska desert is also delicious here and I am not a desert person. It is ice cream covered in meringue. The staff will light it on fire too, it’s really cool.

 

Miguel was our server every time and he was fabulous!!!

 

Krystal – Fusion

 

The pumpkin soup was amazing!!!

We had the beef and the salmon here and both were excellent.

 

Agave – Mexican

 

I loved the chicken fajitas but the appetizer is a buffet so careful because most of the time I was to full for my main course!!

 

Botafogo – Brazilian

 

I was not a big fan of this restaurant, I think the meat could have been cooked better. The turkey was dry and all the meat also needed spices.

 

Yashima – Japanese

 

I had the salmon, it was alright. Doug loved the sushi tray!! I am not a big sushi fan.

 

The main buffet was also very delicious!!! The ribs were amazing. My fav. thing at breakfast is the omelet station..yummy. We also made BLT’s for breakfast which were really yummy. The guacamole and Pico de galo were so fresh and so delicious!!! The pizza and pasta at the lunch buffet by the pool was good too. Oh and the pasta station in the main buffet…awesome!!!! I am getting hungry!!

 

Room service was excellent, we had pretty much everything on the room service menu, my fav was the chicken toastadas.

 

Late at night when you are hungry the sports bar has awesome sandwiches, which Doug had pretty much every night!

 

My fav. drinks were, pina coladas, Miami vice, champagne, mimosas, chocolate martinis and rum punch!!! The cappuccinos there are good too.

I walked down the aisle to Jonathan Cain's version of bridal march.... its so different and beautiful!
YouTube - Jonathan Cain (Journey) Bridal March

Walking out we did "bright side of the road" by van morrison
Bright Side Of The Road by Van Morrison

my favorite place to eat was the japanease place...because I LOVE sushi. I didnt get a chance to eat at Chili's so I can't share in Lisa's love for it!

The meeting with the coordiators was fun. It was a little stressful, but overall it wasnt too bad. I already had everything planned out in my mind in terms of what I wanted - but did end up getting extra flowers to run the aisles.

did anyone else get the video? i paid 1,000 and my video is pretty crappy. its just really blurry and the sound quality is horrible. I'm considering taking it to someone around here to fix up. even though its bad, i'm still glad I have it!!! it was so fun to watch it back again!!!

I did everything online. Theres a spa reservation form online for brides and members of the bridal party. They will send you an email back checking for openings and you have to respond "CONFIRM" of they won't hold your spots!

I had a trial here, so I knew what I wanted. But warning, when I went to Mexico they were able to pretty closely match the style, but they literally LOADED my hair with hairspray...excessive amounts. They don't speak very good english and were just talking about how the weather is different there and thats why they have to spray so much. LOL.

    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
    • If you use the search function for those locations you may better be able to find something. What exactly are you looking for? Recs on photographers?
