Yaly has not stopped all week - She had 4 weddings every day this week. Sara, hope your wedding went off without a hitch. I watched from afar and spoke to your new sister in law before the ceremony when they were decorating the tent area.

Yaly mentioned to me yesterday that you didnt pick up your wedding CD of your pictures so she asked if I knew you to take is back for you. Although we havent met personally I took your CD - I hope you dont mind. I would want someone to bring my CD back for me so I figured it would be OK.

YOu can email or call me so we can make arrangements to get it to you.

Hi Ladies - I got an e-mail from Yaly this morning and we are confirmed for Jan 22, 2010 at 4 p.m. followed by the Beach BBQ - so so happy right now!! Yaly didn't confirm the time of the Beach BBQ with us and I don't want to be a pain - what time did everyone have their's at?

 

I am feeling so sad for everyone that has had to cancel their wedding due to swine flu. I suspose it is for their own safety but it must be very difficult and stressful.

 

Anyway I must get some zzzzzzzzzz's - till next time.

Our beach BBQ started at 6:30. Our ceremony was at 2 but I have a feeling that doesn't change the reception time at all.

Our beach BBQ was also at 7. I think that is the time it starts if your reception is at 4 (ours was at 4).

 

Congrats on getting the date and time sorted out, that makes it so real and exciting.

This may be a weird question...but to the girls that had the beach BBQ, how did it work with the drinks for the reception...do they set up something for you on the beach? do you have to walk back to the resort? Plus how far away is the nearest washroom? Just some random thoughts that popped in my head...Thanks.smile43.gif

They set up a table with wine and champagne. Be aware though, that you are charged for the liquor. Maybe that's obvious, but DH and I were not aware of that (we assumed it was included in the price of the beach bbq, and the fact that it is an all-inclusive). When we checked out of the hotel and received our itemized bill, there was a charge for those drinks at the reception.

The seafood restaurant is steps away and they have bathrooms and I would guess that you could order drinks from there (perhaps at no added cost)? I'm not sure though.

good questions k'osh! I would not have thought that you get charged for drinks at the beach BBQ. That is a bit of a bummer - especially with my friends and families thirst levels ha ha. Oh well.

 

Thanks for providing me with the time of the Beach BBQ - we are sending out information brochures and little cards thanking people for booking etc. (We never did STD's or invites)

 

Bring on the week - end

I DID NOT get charged for the wine and champagne that was served at my wedding, I think that might have been a mistake.

 

The sports bar which is 24 hours is really close to the beach, our guests who wanted liquor or beer went there. There is also bathroom's there. The seafood restaurant is close, but at night its set up for dinner, so you can't really go there for drinks.

 

Ask Yaly about getting charged for the drinks, because we were not charged it was part of the meal.

Julie, you are right, it very well could have been a mistake. For those brides yet to be married at PP, I would just doublecheck with Yaly on that point just in case they now do charge for that.

    • How many people in your group?  
    • We chose to have our wedding at Fiesta so our review is broken down into categories. We have visited multiple Mexican vacation spots to include playa del carmen, cabo san lucas, Cozumel, Puerto Vallarta. We traveled with a group of 35, mostly adults. We had such a great experience and we will definitely go back to Fiesta American Condesa Cancun!!!!    Resort- this was a good size resort, I liked that It was not too big. We didn’t see any of the shows they offer but we did enjoy the pool every day. It was awesome that they had a live dj playing music and fun games to keep us entertained. The bars were all in good locations, we spent a lot of time at the main lobby bar because it stayed open late. They had bands, silent disco, game competitions, etc. every night all very fun and lively!   Room- We stayed in a junior sweet which had ocean view and was absolutely beautiful. Very spacious bathroom, we had a second bathroom in the living room in addition to a breakfast area.    Food- the buffet had a smaller selection of food than we usually see at all-inclusive resorts however the quality of the food was much better!! The ceviche bar outside had amazing fish or shrimp tacos and provides a nice view of the ocean.    Staff- The cleaning staff was great, our room was tidy and organized every day. The bar staff was very friendly and attentive. Yes, we did tip and did so often to ensure they kept coming around. After our wedding, it seemed all staff members knew us by name everywhere we went. We were treated so kindly everywhere!  There were two staff members who played a special role in our vacation, Blanca and Magda. They both were delightful and treated us just like family. Yes, they were awesome to my ENTIRE group.    Venue- We chose to have our ceremony and cocktail hour on the lower pool garden followed by reception on the lower pool deck. Beautiful views for both areas!!! Unfortunately, it rained so we ended up in the ballroom.    Wedding package- We chose the Corazon package and I love what the hotel had to offer. For my personal choice, it was between this package and one at dreams resort but I ultimately decided on this one after reviews from other brides and pictures I looked at. If you are on the fence about a destination wedding I say DO IT!! You can’t beat all inclusive, it really eliminates half the stress of planning a wedding. We had cocktail hour with margaritas, a 3 course dinner, a beautiful cake, and of course open bar. We did not opt for any of the add ons. I did bring my own décor such as table runners, Chinese lanterns, center pieces, bubbles, fans, etc.  The floral arrangements and my boquet were beautiful!!! Exactly as I imagined. My cake was also very pretty and looked just like the one I sent to my coordinator from pinterest.    Wedding coordinator- My wedding coordinator, Violeta Cambranes, was truly amazing!! We communicated mostly through email and a few calls right before wedding time. She was very timely and thorough with our plans. We met with her the day before the wedding. She showed us around and we did our food tasting as well as my trial for hair/make up. She is so personable and really felt like one of my friends throughout this process which is nice to have when you’re leaving such an important day in someone’s hands. I sent her pictures of what I envisioned (wedding colors, floral arrangements, table décor, etc.) and she made it all come to life. Because we ended up having to hold our wedding instead, Violeta was able to make accommodations for us which we are truly grateful for!! She was attentive the entire week we were there and we had no bumps in the road!    Rehearsal Dinner- we had dinner for about 15 people in the Mexican restaurant. The food was great and of course the staff was attentive. I do wish we had the opportunity to choose our own meal but still enjoyed it none the less.    Spa- we received a couples massage and it was perfect. Steam room, sauna, hot tub, and massage. So relaxing!! We also received a second massage on our shoulders one of the days we were there. A spa therapist came to our cabana while we relaxed and drank mimosas.    Date- we got married first week of October. I knew it was one of the rainiest months of the year but I was willing to take the change because it was offseason. I’m so glad that I did!! The rooms and the flights were extremely inexpensive. Also, the resort was not packed at all! There was a comfortable amount of people compared to when we usually travel in the summer. The weather was not too hot but it did rain 3/7 days we were there. Mosquitos were also still in full force so would recommend bug spray.   Photographer- my photographer, Mike Cantarall,  overall was great! He captured all the great moments of the wedding. The highlight video was truly perfect!! I will say it did take extremely long to obtain my pictures (7 weeks when expected turn-around time was supposed to be 7 days). I wish we could have had a discussion prior to wedding day. I don’t love a lot of the poses and he did ask me if there was anything specific I wanted  (while on the beach taking pictures) but in the moment I couldn’t think of exactly what I wanted. In hind sight, I would have asked for more close up, more poses as bride and groom, and for my dress to not be scrunched up. With that being said, I was still pleased with the turn-out of my photos.    DJ- our DJ was AudioCancun. Very pricey!!! But we did not have an option for vendor. He did a great job! He truly recognized the vibe of the group and played the best music to keep the party going! We did give him some specific songs which he played them all.    Make-up- My make up and hair was done by Anastacio Brides. I loved my look!! I showed them pictures from pinterest and it came out exactly how I wanted. After different areas of my face were done, my make-up artist would show me in the mirror to see if it was on track with what I wanted. They were so nice and I enjoyed their company while getting ready for my big day.   Travel- to and from hotel we used Happy Shuttle. They have great rates and I trusted them based on the reviews I read. I bought a garment back and carried my dress in my hands the entire way there and back! (yes even through all the flights). We ended up taking 4 suitscases between the two of us and also had some of our family members pack things for us.    Boat- Our group took a triple decker boat, Dancer Cruise, to Isla Mujeres. It was a full day of fun, accommodating both kids and adults. We snorkeled, we ate lunch, and we danced! The slide and diving board were pretty fun! The staff was lively and the boat was not very packed so that was nice. They did give us a group rate when I emailed them directly.
