Does anyone know of/have used a cigar roller at their cocktail hour? thought it would be a nice addition to the event. I haven't been able to find anything out through searches besides some shady websites.

I'm getting married October 19, 2013 at Dreams Tulum and have a few questions for everyone (this has been an awesome resource by the way- thank you!)

 

1) Did you find it to be too dark on the beach without lights ?  I'm not sure I want paper lanterns but I want the guests to be able to see what they are eating. Also, did you find your paper products (menu, placecards etc. blew away? I really want a small/intimate space but I refuse to pay for another extra (aka the wine vault room) and I feel like the banquet is way too big for a group of 20. Also, would you be able to hear the ipod music on the beach if we went that route (were not renting a dance floor - more of a dinner setting)?

 

2) Anyone hear the romantic trio? Would that be suitable for the ceremony?

 

3) Anyone have a decently priced photographer willing to do a one hour shoot? We don't have it in the budget for two photographers and Dreams Tulum will nto let me opt out of using theirs. I have already contacted Del Sol, Sascha Gluck , and a few others - none of which are willing to do a one hour shoot (just the ceremony and a first look shoot for the  bride/groom. (Dreams Tulum would shoot the rest).

 

Thanks,

 

Shauna

Hi fiddle!

i don't think you'll have trouble getting in the mexico, just have it out of the box and without a price tag. Customs are any concerned with ppl reselling stuff, and the obvious guns, drugs, and explosives. Also FYI, I've heard that some brides will use the docking stations from their rooms, just be sure to bring batteries. Not sure how loud they are though...

Hi Kristin! I found this for you. Not sure the info is up to date but it might help, there are a few emails for rollers in the area:)

That was my concern- this one is supposed to be loud- FI is researching... Seems like their sound system is such a rip off, if I can have this and have it forever! Thanks for your answer!

Hey everyone,

 

We leave in just a week!!! i do have a question for the music. We rented the sound system, did most of you just bring a cd with you or how did you get the music to play with their sound system. I do have an iphone, could i put the songs on there and bring a cord to connect to their speakers?

 

Thanks!

Hi kaci!

i think the idea is that you use your iPod or phone... I think I remember reading that? Is this for your ceremony or reception? I know I plan on using the sound system for or ceremony and Nayeli said a technician could change songs for us that way

Kaci- We used our Ipod and had each part of the ceremony broken down to seperate playlists ie. bridal party entrance, bride entrance, exits 

our ipod connected directly to the speakers

Teagan, I  and was wondering, how was the timing on your music? Did you like edit the songs to certain lengths, cutting out intros? Fade in/fade out? I'm confused on this lol... I don't want the music to sound cheesy when the tech changes the song

    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
