    Hi Alisha

     

    how many guests did you have? Did you have the plated dinner? I am getting married at the Cancun Palace and having my reception on the beach, so I have to have buffet.

      What is the best cake flavor?  They have "cheese" listed, is that cream cheese?

        we had no problem for the most part.  We did the zip-lining, swimming w/ the dolphins, tulum and Chichen Itza.  the woman the the booking desk was very help full, when the zip-lining tour was booked up for the day we wanted she told us to check with her the day off 15 mins before the pick-up time to see if they had any room and they did so we got to do it.  the only complaint was for the tulum and Chichen Itza tour, they really make the tour 1-2 hours longer then needed by stopping at their gift stores on the side of the road, just wait till you get to Chichen Itza to buy souvenirs as the prices at their places are way over price and they are not willing to really deal.  We got some thing at Chichen Itza for $12 that their place wanted $55!

          Hi there.

           

          We had 50 guests. I did a buffet set up and felt it was alot easier so that everyone could help themselves to whatever they wanted.

           

          The buffet was beautifully set up. Just gorgeous - they carved flowers out of different vegetables and took such care in the presentation. The food was amazing.

            Alisha,

            Do you  know if you had the Mexican Buffet or the Yucatan Buffet?  Also, what did you do for decorations...do you have an pictures?  Any other information or advice you can provide would be great!

              Girls,

               

              Does anyone know hoe much it is to rent empty vases and bring your own flowers in?  Also, is anyone using a DJ other that the one they suggest you use?  If so, what policies did they tell you the DJ had to follow?  Finally, what are you all doing for music at the ceremony?

                Tanya,

                Dulce is getting a quote for me on tall hurricane vases, but I was told we can't bring in outside flowers.  I don't know how strict they are about that, so you should probably ask her.  As for DJ's...they gave me two options and while we were there for our site visit, one of them was doing a wedding.  His sound system was incredible and they did a really nice set up, so we decided to go with them...J&S Audio Visual.  Our contact, Michell has been great and very responsive.  I can pass along the info if you're interested.

                  Hi Sam,

                  Thanks for the info...I must have asked her 5 times already about the flowers, and she just doesnt answer me, but she did quote me $64.00 for "EMPTY" tall vases and $90.00 for center pieces...they are nuts!  I'm going to go to Walmart and but them when I am there.  I will make due with what I find there.   I am curious though to see what she quotes you.

                  That is who they suggested with me too, but I couldn't find anything about them online so I went with DJ Mannia.

                  Tanya

                    Could everyone tell me there plan for hair and make up?  Are most of you doing it at the PP Spa or elsewhere?  Anyone know of a spa menu for these things or what type of makeup they use...Thanks

                      I'm planning on doing a test at their spa when I arrive to see how it goes - if it doesn't turn out there is MAC in town so I'll go there and get my make up done and perhaps try out some of the salons in town too....the makeup artists in Mexico are crazy for what they are charging - it's more expensive than at home..there is also Waves Salon and the guy is originally from Canada so I will keep him in mind too
