Hey everyone!

 

Just got back from my wedding at EPM - it was wonderful. happy it's over, lol but also happy to answer any questions, so feel free to ask away. I've posted photos below, if you want to see more, just let me know.

 

A few important things to note:

 

  • Llenny is wonderful - loved her!
  • be mindful of the wind. it was beautiful during the day but the wind was crazy at night so be mindful of that when planning your reception
  • if you are having a Legal Wedding - be sure to have some music for when you and your witnesses are signing your legal documents. That takes about 5-7 minutes. Also, your signatures MUST match your passports or the document is void. Yup, it's happened before.
  • if you have a dj - have a playlist ready b/c they'll ask for it when you meet and they will follow that playlist (almost to the t - which was kinda annoying b/c I asked them not to) But DJ Mannia is good,don't get me wrong. The dancefloor was worth the extra $$$ btw
  • Also loved loved the cold fireworks on the dance floor -- totally worth it. We had them do that at the end of the first dance
  • I was a little disappointed with my flower arrangements but you get over it quickly.
  • I was also suppose to have the flowers that were at the alter moved to our sweetheart table, but that never happened :(
  • I was not happy that after the ceremony - we took photos but the guests didn't know what to do. Had to go find a wedding coordinator to direct them where to go.
  • I highly recommend if you are having your reception at CECCO - be sure to use the inside of CECCO as well. The bar inside is great and it helps if guests need to warm up or cool off
  • Here are some photos....

Yes I requested the inside too b/c sometimes they'll set up a bar outside and we didn't like that. Plus I had a 'Relief Station' and Photos so we had all that inside. And there are couchees so people can chill inside if they want.

Thank you!! We had beautiful weather, thank goodness.

Yes I did - brought most of my decorations i.e. lanterns, mason jars with me. Though I only brought back the bird cage - left the rest with Llenny. However, I don't recommend anyone shipping their decorations - bring it with you in a suitcase(s) cause you never know with customs. Plus they do not accept anything that says 'Made in China' in bulk. So better if you have it with you. I also gave all my OOT bags ahead of time to guests to get them excited and prepared for the trip versus having to lug it all to Mexico and pay the $4 fee for each delivery. It went over well. :)

What's the best way to get your dress there? I see different responses about whether to bring it with you or ship it a head of time.
 

Also, my wedding isn't until November 11th but when do you plan the details about the reception with Llenny? We picked out the flowers, center pieces, and menu then she said that was it for now.

 

Thanks!

They use MAC makeup and it's traditional not airbrushing.

 

Ooh! Your big day is coming up in less than a month! How do you get a hold of the spa or is that something you talk to your coordinator about later? Just wondering how they see your hair style whether it's the day of or ahead of time.
