I'm stumped.



     

    I wouldn't worry about music if I were you since you aren't having a reception. If anything bring your iPod just in case. A friend of mine has been to this resort and she says they have cool clubs. So instead if having a reception I think it wud bd cool to grab dinner and go out to the bars and party after!!!!oop

        Hi ladies! In regards to music, I have hired DJ Doremixx for our reception and they will also be providing me with sound system for the ceremony. If anyone needs info on any of my vendors, I would love to share....I'm very happy with all the decisions I have made so far. I always have lots of questions for Jacy and she usually takes a couple of days to answer, but she always does. I usually gather a bunch of questions and just send them all at once, one question per line...I just feel it's easier for her this way...anyway...if I can help in any way please let me know

            Hey M&D2011, that is awesome we will be there at the same time. All of our guests are leaving on June13th so we will have a lot of free time :) We def will have to get together. It sounds like things are going very well for you w/ the planning.  I wish I was more on the ball like you. I am such a procrastinator and I am terrible about making decisions. I love your save the dates. We did a similar thing but ours are for the invitation and not save the date. What Wedding package did you go with? and what are you doing about flowers?

              Hi AsiaJane, I havent' chosen a package yet, I'm waiting to see how many people will actually come to the wedding. Jacy said it's ok to choose later. I'm getting the free package anyways because of the amount of rooms I already have booked. Here are some info on my vendors:

               

              1 - Photographer: Sascha Gluck, I'm super excited to work with him. I love his work. He will do 5 hours on wedding day and the next day we will do a TTD at cenote

              2 - DJ: Doremixx, they will be bringing sound system for ceremony as well as recepion

              3 - Make Up/Hair: Adrian Guerra - Styling Trio Riviera Maya. i def wanted to get a perfect professional, and all I can say is that i loved the whole negotiation with Adrian, he is awesome, he is also doing all my bridesmaids and moms

              4 - Welcome dinner on friday - I'm still deciding this one, I may rent one of the restaurants or do a catamaran sunset cruise. I originally wanted to take all guests to playa, but it became expensive to charter a bus.

              5 - Flowers: this is a big one, I'm working on quotes right now, I'm either going to get silk orchids for  or i will get this florist i found here on this website, marvin j ku kinil from maya diseno floral. or once jacy sends me a quote, just with the resort

               

              the problem with getting this many outside vendors is that i have to pay $55 for each to come in. i'm trying to negotiate that with Jacy right now...we will see what happens

               

              let me know if you have any questions. I've been emailing jacy for a while now, so i have lots of answers from her :) i'm a control freak if you havent notice yet :)

                Hello,

                 

                We haven't booked just yet, but my fiance and I are strongly considering getting married at this resort in Nov 2011. We will have approx. 25 family and friends with us, who will all be staying at the resort for 1 week.

                 

                Any pros, cons, tips, advice, etc. would be greatly appreciated!

                 

                We will be making our final decision in the next couple weeks.

                 

                Thanks so much!

                  Hey m&d2011,

                   

                  OMG you are so organized. I'm so jealous. I should hire you :) Thank you for all the info. I am very interested in getting Adrian Guerra's info from you. Hair and Makeup is one thing that is important to me. I'm sure I will have a few more questions for you soon! I love that you are on the ball. You are really motivating me to get things moving. I can't wait to get married!! Thank you Thank you Thank you!

                    Hi JLMS,

                    Congrats on the wedding and Welcome to the forum. I can only speak for myself but I think picking DPA was the best decision I ever made. I've only heard great things on this site about this resort and I've had nothing but a good experience with dealing with the resort.  A friend of mine stayed here and loved it and she referred me to the DPA.  I haven’t had my wedding yet so I can’t say it will be amazing but from what all the other girls who have gone before say, the weddings here are pretty spectacular. You should read some of the earlier post. The girls that have been married rate their wedding experiences. Maybe that will help you out. Good luck!!

                      So I definitely feel behind! I don't even have a dress picked out!  To those that are getting married april, may, or june... are you going with a short or long dress. Are you going to change for reception? I definitely think a long dress has more of a bride feel to it. I just worry about sweating in it, if our wedding is on the beach and the reception is on the beach 

                       

                      We have 8 adults and 4 kids booked so far, I am still thinking about going with the Ultimate for the simplicity of it. The most important things to me are pictures, food and cocktails, music (being able to hook up our Ipod docking station to electricity) and I think the mariachi band would be super fun!!

                       

                      Here is the time line I was thinking of. What do you girls think?

                       

                      3pm-330 wedding ceremony on beach

                      3:30-4:30 cocktail hr while we are getting pictures beach

                      4:30-5:30 cocktail hr with appetizers and maybe the mariachi band (depending on if we go with the ultimate wedding) beach

                      5:30-6 freshen up, maybe change

                      6pm dinner at gazebo (unfortunately this is probably going to be on the beach or poolside because there is another wedding at 5pm:-()

                       

                      Tracy
