Tulumbride2013:

 

When I first got this information it all seemed clear to me. I don't know what I was thinking.

I did a quick search online and I believe this is what Natalia and maybe even Anabel meant:

 

Diameter: 1.8m (approx. 5.9ft)

Width (maybe thickness of the table top?): 3.6 cm  (approx. 1.4in) - I'm not sure why this dimension would be useful.

Height: 80cm   (approx. 2.6ft)

 

These seem to be reasonable for 8 - 10 people.

 

I hope this helps!

Tulumbride2013 and BeaBride,

 

Thanks!

Are you guys getting a DJ that will be setting up the lighting and audio by himself? I'm just curious how you guys are working this out.

I would agree...if the there is only one DJ (i.e. only one vendor) it should only be one vendor fee or a day pass.

Have you read anything suggesting otherwise?

At first they told me 1.8 as well, and FH assumed she meant to say meters. But I emailed her again to clarify, and she told me 3.6cm.... But centimeters... Again! Sigh... I think about six foot sounds right. Isn't a language barrier fun?!:D

April2012- Congratulations on your wedding! Your question is a good one, I didn't think to even ask about that. We hired a DJ and a florist and we were charged one external vendor fee for the DJ which was $120. As for the florist, we are having the florist drop off the flower arrangements and vases and we are going to set them up so we weren't charged for another external vendor fee. Hopefully someone else will know for sure if they charge you per person.

Hi Ladies!!

 

I haven't really been following the round table discussion but I do know that according to Natalia, the round tables are able to seat 6-10 people.  I just emailed her yesterday to ask her about this as I am about to purchase the last few decor items for the reception.  I also was able to finalize our seating chart for the reception.  

 

APRIL 2013:

 

The DJ is coming alone and setting up his own audio equipment.  He will be doing the sound for our ceremony as well as for the reception. He has lights available that he could set up but we didn't opt for that.  We have DJ Bijan from Mayanvibes and found him after researching online and on this forum.  HIs reviews by the brides on here were good, plus he's actually a Canadian living in Mexico which worked out really well because I was able to email transfer him our deposit in Canadian dollars.  The remaining balance will be paid in Mexico in USD. 

 

As for the the vendor fee.....

A few months ago I was reading a bride's review on her florist because I was thinking about hiring an outside florist.  She paid two vendors fees for her florist because her assistant went with her to set up.  In hindsight, the bride would not have paid for the assistant to come as she felt the florist was easily able to set everything up on her own.  Other brides on this forum have just had their outside florist drop off the stuff and the wedding team at Dreams did the setup.  As for myself, we chose not to hire a florist to save on cost as we currently have a party of 62 people.  We are bringing the majority of our church and reception decorations with us.

We got DJ Doremixx... He hasn't been exactly clar but I think he will be setting the things up by himself. I don't see the company using man hours for two mc s when only one guy will be actually DJ ing. I think the resort should be a bit more organized as too all of their info. Seems crazy that they send the planning forms out two months before the wedding. DJ s, florists, photographers, and a ton of other things need to be accounted for well before two months out!

We are going to have our reception at the pool.  I thought that there was a half day pass you could get for outside vendor.  Also, DJ Doremixx said I would only be 1 person.  I haven't heard of this 3 hour music thing??!!  I do remember seeing something that mentioned that music had to end by 10:30 which seems kind of lame.  I DO agree with you ladies about the prices to set things up it just ABSURD!!  I am having a hard time deciding what to bring and what to just do without.  Since we went with the DJ we are going cheaper on flowers because the scenery is there-  Also, there isn't much we can do with the flowers afterwards.  I am worried about decorations, chair sashes, and flowers for bouquets.

I don't think I am purchasing extra flowers, the prices are really high. Im bringing chair sashes but then again I only have 25 ppl. I might end up sending them with my moh or something. Also bringing three centerpieces,fans for chairs a ton of starfish, and my oot bags. I'm making my stepdad set the chairs up to save money, but then agin we have a super small wedding.As far as bouquets I'm making a seashell one for my moh, seems easy and affordable, and it lasts forever! So I booked DJ doremixx, bride81, did you get any kind of receipt for your deposit?. He said he would let me know when he had it picked up, that was over a week ago. I've sent 3 emails and no response, but western union says he picked it up. Seems sketchy, but he has a ton of great reviews.

I am also bringing my own chair sashes and wanted to avoid the extra costs of having the resort tie them on the chairs.  Have they told you how early you will be able to access the chairs for set up?  I am curious how that works if they have other weddings the same day.

Texasmandy, She has not told me how long ahead of time we can set the chairs up. She just said that someone from my wedding party can do it. If they have other weddings that day, and they feel as though it would look unprofessional or if we would take to long setting them up, they can do it but I'm not paying for it. I'm bringing all of these emails with me as proof of the promises that we're made to me. Sorry ladies, I've been a bridezilla! Especially after seeing all of these extra set up charges..

      I wrote a ridiculously long review (11 pages). It includes my itinerary, my 6 page travel letter for worry warts, guest bags, every detail of the hotel, cost, advice, etc. I’m not going to overload the FB page with it so here is a link to the review if you want to read it. In short, I would give this hotel and experience 5 stars and recommend you use an outside vendor for photography and DJ just for cost effective reasons. Theirs is amazing and will not disappoint. My favorite part of my stay was the wedding of course and the spa. Favorite people at the resort were Paola (wedding planner), Vividiana (check in), Veronica and Marisol (spa). https://drive.google.com/open?id=1RaFb19Pbn8tDvNY3_GSoZ8DX0plYaT_F

       
    • Hi there, I think the idea of abroad trip is great for the newly married couple. But along with the trip you can also gift them some beautiful pairs of wholesale designer sunglasses, that will be helpful to them on the trip. By wearing wholesale sunglasses they look stylish and fashionable.
    • What is BMI? Body Mass Index ( BMI index ) is a person’s weight in kilograms divided by the square of height in meters. For children and teens, BMI is age- and sex-specific and is often referred to as BMI-for-age. In children, a high amount of body fat can lead to weight-related diseases and other health issues and being underweight can also put one at risk for health issues. A high BMI can be an indicator of high body fatness. BMI does not measure body fat directly, but research has shown that BMI is correlated with more direct measures of body fat, such as skinfold thickness measurements, bioelectrical impedance, densitometry (underwater weighing), dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) and other methods1,2,3. BMI can be considered an alternative to direct measures of body fat. In general, BMI is an inexpensive and easy-to-perform method of screening for weight categories that may lead to health problems. How is BMI calculated for children and teens? Calculating BMI using the BMI Percentile Calculator involves the following steps: Measure height and weight. Refer to Measuring Children’s Height and Weight Accurately At Home for guidance. Use the Child and Teen BMI Calculator to calculate BMI. The BMI number is calculated using standard formulas. What is a BMI percentile and how is it interpreted? After BMI is calculated for children and teens, it is expressed as a percentile which can be obtained from either a graph or a percentile calculator (see links below). These percentiles express a child’s BMI relative to children in the U.S. who participated in national surveys that were conducted from 1963-65 to 1988-944. Because weight and height change during growth and development, as does their relation to body fatness, a child’s BMI must be interpreted relative to other children of the same sex and age. The BMI-for-age percentile growth charts are the most commonly used indicator to measure the size and growth patterns of children and teens in the United States. BMI-for-age weight status categories and the corresponding percentiles were based on expert committee recommendations and are shown in the following table.   Weight Status Category Percentile Range Underweight Less than the 5th percentile Normal or Healthy Weight 5th percentile to less than the 85th percentile Overweight 85th to less than the 95th percentile Obese Equal to or greater than the 95th percentile   How is BMI used with children and teens? For children and teens, BMI is not a diagnostic tool and is used to screen for potential weight and health-related issues. For example, a child may have a high BMI for their age and sex, but to determine if excess fat is a problem, a health care provider would need to perform further assessments. These assessments might include skinfold thickness measurements, evaluations of diet, physical activity, family history, and other appropriate health screenings. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends the use of BMI to screen for overweight and obesity in children beginning at 2 years old. For children under the age of 2 years old, consult the WHO standards. BMI online Is BMI interpreted the same way for children and teens as it is for adults? BMI is interpreted differently for children and teens even though it is calculated as weight ÷ height2. Because there are changes in weight and height with age, as well as their relation to body fatness, BMI levels among children and teens need to be expressed relative to other children of the same sex and age. These percentiles are calculated from the CDC growth charts, which were based on national survey data collected from 1963-65 to 1988-944. Obesity is defined as a BMI at or above the 95th percentile for children and teens of the same age and sex. For example, a 10-year-old boy of average height (56 inches) who weighs 102 pounds would have a BMI of 22.9 kg/m2. This would place the boy in the 95th percentile for BMI, and he would be considered to have obesity. This means that the child’s BMI is greater than the BMI of 95% of 10-year-old boys in the reference population. For adults, BMI is interpreted as weight status categories that are not dependent on sex or age. Read more: How to interpret BMI for adult BMI Why can’t healthy weight ranges be provided for children and teens? Normal or healthy weight weight status is based on BMI between the 5th and 85th percentile on the CDC growth chart. It is difficult to provide healthy weight ranges for children and teens because the interpretation of BMI depends on weight, height, age, and sex. What are the BMI trends for children and teens in the United States? The prevalence of children and teens who measure in the 95th percentile or greater on the CDC growth charts has greatly increased over the past 40 years. Recently, however, this trend has leveled off and has even declined in certain age groups. To learn more about child and teen obesity trends, visit Childhood Obesity Facts. How can I tell if my child is overweight or obese? CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommend the use of BMI to screen for overweight and obesity in children and teens age 2 through 19 years. For children under the age of 2 years old, consult the WHO standards. Although BMI is used to screen for overweight and obesity in children and teens, BMI is not a diagnostic tool. To determine whether the child has excess fat, further assessment by a trained health professional would be needed. For information about the consequences of childhood obesity, its contributing factors and more, see Tips for Parents – Ideas and Tips to Help Prevent Childhood Obesity. Can I determine if my child or teen is obese by using an adult BMI calculator? In general, it’s not possible to do this. The adult calculator provides only the BMI value (weight/height2) and not the BMI percentile that is needed to interpret BMI among children and teens. It is not appropriate to use the BMI categories for adults to interpret the BMI of children and teens. However, if a child or teen has a BMI of ≥ 30 kg/m2, the child is almost certainly obese. A BMI of 30 kg/m2 is approximately the 95th percentile among 17-year-old girls and 18-year-old boys. My two children have the same BMI values, but one is considered obese and the other is not. Why is that? The interpretation of BMI varies by age and sex. So if the children are not the same age and the same sex, the interpretation of BMI has different meanings. For children of different age and sex, the same BMI could represent different BMI percentiles and possibly different weight status categories. See the following graphic for an example for a 10-year-old boy and a 15-year-old boy who both have a BMI-for-age of 23. (Note that two children of different ages are plotted on the same growth chart to illustrate a point. Normally the measurement for only one child is plotted on a growth chart.)
