Hello Ladies!

I loved Vanessa Jaimes' website but am having a lot of trouble contacting her. I've sent her a message on her website as well as through email. Has anyone else had trouble reaching her? How were her prices? She does such beautiful work!

I met with Vanessa Jaimes and Marvin Ku Kinil during my May 2009 site inspection. Vanessa met me at the car rental company, shortly after I arrived in Cancun. I respect Vanessa's artist design, but I ended up choosing Marvin Ku Kinil since he went out of his way to impress me with a half dozen designs he created for me during our first meeting. I did not want to pay a minimum of $2,000 for flowers, so I chose Marvin as he has no minimum.

 

Here is a link to his website.

Thank you so much for the advice Marie!

I did finally hear back from Vanessa and was shocked to hear her minimum charge! Hopefully Marvin will be as helpful to me as he was to you!

Thanks again!

I'd like to recommend Robb Hiner. He works with John Gray of John Gray's Place (a restaurant) in Playa del Carmen. I had emailed him a couple of inspiration photos, and he put together the bouquet and table centerpieces beautifully. I'm attaching a couple photos of the bouquet.

 

Overall, he charged me $400 for 6 table centerpieces and a bouquet, all generously sized and beautifully done.

 

Here's his contact info:

Vanessa is very hit and miss with getting ahold of her - she responds quickly sometimes but takes her time other times!!! Very frustrating!! She actually lowered her minimum to $1500 which is better but still seems high

 

thanks for the other contacts I will try them out!

Has anyone used Julieta for other general decor? I am just curious how she might compare to some of the larger production companies.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
