    If they charge you the 750$ for the private reception, it would be in addition to the meal charge. But I would expect they won't charge you it, I think it's purely to close the restaurants.
    Thanks for your replies! I will double check with my WC first, but I'm thinking it may be our best bet to just upgrade to the Dreams of Love package if they charge the $750 for anything other than the World Cafe.

      Hello all! There is soooo much information on this site, so great! I do have one question for those who have gotten married in the Mayan Riviera. I plan on shipping a large tote with welcome bags, starfish, seashells, favors, etc. Are there any restrictions from customs on what can and cannot be shipped into Mexico?

      Here is what I plan on sending:

      (50) welcome bags:
      toothbrushes
      toothpaste
      mouthwash
      advil packs
      mini sunblock
      lip balm
      water
      chips/snacks

      50 starfish
      50 sanddollars

      tulle for back of seat covers

      Should I be concerned with supplies getting held up in customs?

      Thanks!
      Gina

        I don't know the exact restrictions, but I know that I read somewhere on the forum several months ago of a bride who was going to be charged a ridiculous amount of customs, so high that it made more sense to just abandon the items (so she lost what she paid for them and also what she paid to have them shipped).

        Most brides around here strongly advise against advance shipping items, it's better to just pay extra for an extra suitcase.

        Maybe somebody else can offer more specific info.

          Hi Girls! SO excited to be here - I've been lurking for almost a whole year!! You are all wonderful and have awesome information to share. It's so much appreciated!

          I do have a question, though =)

          I need to find a DJ/MC for the reception. I looked into DJ Bob (who I found in the vendor reviews page), but he's booked. I also looked into DJ Mannia who is just too darn expensive.

          Any other recommendations?

          BTW: Sunbride, you are the best! So helpful! You're like the DT guru! And your photographs are BEAUTIFUL!

            Wow, your wedding is less than a month away! You should have stopped lurking sooner!!! Makes me wonder how many brides we really have on this thread since I would guess that for every bride who has said hello, there are probably at least a few who haven't, so we probably really have several hundreds, maybe even a thousand brides on here!

            Anyways, good luck with the last minute planning.

              Hi girls,

              Big thanks to Sunbride for all of your hard work.

              This forum has been a huge help to me, im quite sure I would have given up on this whole idea of a destination wedding so far from home ( im a british bride 2 B) without all your fab tips and reassuring reveiws!

              Cant wait to read the 2009 girls reveiws, keep posting.

              Here's my info

              Username: northernflasher
              Names: Michelle and David
              Date and Time of ceremony:26th March 2010 at 4pm
              Number of guests: 11 definites
              Co-ordinator: Had brief, unfathomble emails from several so im not sure!
              Ceremony type:Legal, hopefully with some personal added extras such as readings and our own additional vows.
              Ceremony location:Chapel
              Cocktail hour: undecided
              Reception location: Approx 6pm. Originally wanted the beach but massage hut looks good for our party size and a few people have commented on the beach getting cold and windy after sunset which has put me off quite a bit.
              Package: Trying to persuade H2B to go for the ultimate.
              Photographer: Resort, plus Myself, H2B and H2B's father are all professional photogs!
              Videographer:Resort (if we go for ultimate package)
              Extras: I love the idea of a Bonfire on the beach and poss fire dancers (budget allowing!)

              Hope this is all you need.

              Many Thanks

                  Hi! To all of the recent brides,

                  how did you find it getting married on days when there are multiple weddings? Did you feel like you were constantly running into other brides? Was it a turn off to see so many weddings during your vacation? Also, if music has to end at 10:30.. what did you do after (and did you find that having a 3pm ceremony gave you enough time for dinner and dancing?). What time does the s un set in early january?

                  Thanks so much ladies!! :)
                  33 People Booked!!

                      I sent similair items. Paid 245 dollars to send- it got to Mexico and would not clear customs- I had to pay another 215 to send back. They opened it up and since items were from China, India they said I woud have to pay taxes on it. $1400.00 in taxes. I suggest you put it all in a suitcase. If your wanting your guests to have the stuff before they arrive do what I did. I just sent each guest their bag by fed ex and they brought all their goodies along.
