    Hi everyone. I haven't heard of too many brides that have gotten married at Hyatt Cancun Caribe. After site visits and much, much debating...the final verdict is... we are getting married on the beach at the Hyatt and then having dinner and cake at the Hyatt Blue Bayou Restaurant (which is beautiful if you haven't seen it and willl accomodate larger groups!). We then decided to do something a bit different and move the reception around 8 to the Fiesta Americana Condesa Kambu restaurant for dancing/DJ and fire dancers. We just loved the feel of the Kambu Restaurant with the open air, and very tall palapa and so we managed to somehow get both Hyatt and FAC locations within our budget.
    For those of you considering either place...they have been great to work with. The Hyatt's new wedding coordinator, Brenda, has been responsive to all of my questions and really willing to work with what your budget is.
    I am slowly getting everyone else booked: will be booking Martha Roque for pictures, booked Sarao for fire dancers, booked Carlos with Mannia Audio/Videa for DJ, and booking Julieta Flores for flowers. Wow...that is a lot of work finally paying off!! Hooray! If anyone has any questions on the locations or vendors let me know- I'm happy to help!

          Hi everyone. I am finally able to take some time and share with you details planned about my Feb 2009 wedding, in case it helps any of you in your planning. I have benefited so much from everyone else, so thanks for posting- this forum is the best!

          Wed and Thurs: meet with coordinators, do errands like buy alcohol at La Europea, and have fun :)..also a Shower for me and a guys fishing trip...and a rehearsal dinner at Linecello (I think I spelled that right)
          Friday: Ceremony: Beach cove Hyatt Cancun Caribe
          Dinner: Hyatt Blue Bayou Restaurant with saxophonist, food and tres leches cake comes with 3 hours of alchohol included.
          Reception: At 8 pm at Fiesta Americana Condesa Condesa- Kambu Restaurant with large open air feel. We will place large bamboo pieces in the room and tall vases with flower and floating candles. We will also be placing candles in the fountain, and there will be tiki torches outside...so hopefully it will add to the ambience and provide enough light to see. We will bring alchohol and do a corkage fee with mixer.

          Transportation: Taxis for guests lined up, and hoping to confirm a limo to transport bride and groom and bridal party
          During the reception we will have Fire Dancers at 9 pm- Sarao Company
          DJ- Carlos with Mannia
          Julieta Flores for flowers

          My dress: Mori Lee can be seen at Bridal Gowns Informal bridal bridesmaids Prom Flower Girl Quinceanera Stores. But I have gotten it altered a bit so it looks a tad different than in the picture.
          Groom: He went back and forth but decided against a linen suit and went for a Black Tux from Jos A Bank (they are having great holiday deals btw!). The 5 groomsmen and my my brother who will be doing a reading will be wearing black slacks with white button down shirt and a tie with beige/stripes. They will all wear orchid boutineers. The dads will just wear black suits and have a tropical boutineer.
          Bridesmaids: The girls will be wearing Badgley Mischka dresses in different styles- 950001, 9500011, 950210, . I gave them different options all in the buttercup color. They will have a bouqet of greens and pink orchids. My sister will have an orchid in her hair.

          So far we have 55 confirmed :) hooray!

          We have so many details: OOT bags- all items are at my mom's so I will post pictures after the wedding..but mainly consist of koozie's, candy, welcome letter, flip flops, and many other goodies that I am forgetting about. We will have raffia fans to place on chairs with ceremony details outlined. I also have items like a glass jar for guests to write a thought/advice and place in jar for us...

          We are bringing hot pink parasols for photos, then will probably place a few around reception to add to the decor.
          I am also going to be printing up signs to put around resort, and also little personal touches in the bathroom by the reception to make it appear more spa like.

          I will post pictures as I can figure out how to do them....

          That's all for now, hope it helps!!!

            Hi Christy! I had my reception at the FA Condesa and I used Flores Julieta too! Great choice!
