i hear ya, but i don't mind the electric slide HALF as much as the macarena. i don't care if i am getting married in mexico and the song is part spanish, there is no way that is being played. it's a song about a girl cheating on her boyfriend! why would anyone want that at their wedding?

we are using an ipod tho, so we're totally in control! wink.gif

11.11 les maries pictures from weddings photos on webshots

Sometimes somebody comes to them, talks to them and takes a picture and goes back to their seat.
OMG!! That is one ugly ass chair!! (well...two ugly ass chairs I guess!!) LOL

These are GREAT!!

 

I went to a friend's sisters wedding. The groom was about 10 years older than the bride, and was the youngest of 7 or 8 kids. So all of his nieces and nephews were there. And when I say all, I mean like 30 kids, all under 12, all screaming banshees. No sitters. No discipline. The babies cried bloody murder all through the wedding ceremony - none of the moms took them outside or to the back of the church. You couldn't hear a thing! And at the receception (an evening event), they let them run rampant - they bumped into us while we were trying to eat dinner, ran all over the place while the bride and groom tried to have their first dance. Oh my god it was awful!

 

Of course... I still had all 11 of our nieces and nephews at our wedding. But they are all good kids instead of the pack of feral children that stumbled upon that wedding.

OMG Maureen! I was at a wedding just like that. It was a beautiful set up but port-a-potties...I'm sorry that just didn't cut it. I guess they had a sewer and too much usage is not good.

i swore i wouldn't stress over the details - and i didn't!
Yep, Ann, LC was great. Noone there all day or night except my guests!~

Okay, my worst was at a metal barn garage type thing. The food was pasta that they dumped into a crock pot before the ceremony started with sauce so that it was ready when it was time to eat. Paper plates, etc. It was so odd, but they did have beer so it ended up being fun, but my bf at the time and I commandeered the microphone and sang! Gues that was cause of the beer. I also don't like the VFW hall weddings. Sorry if thats bitchy, but the decor is always from walmart like streamers etc.

I'm pretty sure this is a southern thing. Most of my friends did this. It's usually part of the package to get the gigantic print of the bride to display at the wedding. I peronally wouldn't do it. Then there is the issue of what to do with it after the wedding. They usually end up in the mother of the bride's house.

I can't believe with all the weddings I've been to, I don't have any stories. Although I like a tacky wedding. I'm the first on the floor to macarena or chicken dance.

I've seen several pictures of a bride doing a keg stand at the wedding. I think it's tacky, but then I trudged through bat poop in a wedding dress, so I'm sure many people out there would make fun of me :)

I have to confess that whenever I wear those special-suck-it-in-underwear, I always remove them before the night is over. Usually after a few drinks when I don't care that I might be a little lumpy, I take them off in the bathroom. Luckily, I didn't wear them for my wedding so at least I only act trashy at other peoples wedding! hahahaaaaa

I have yet to see something that made me swear to be honest, but I've quietly shaken my head at a few people. One bride had this hairdresser who pretty much ruined her hair. I don't know how it happened but let's just say she was blonde to start with and ended up with black streaks. Somehow they managed to fix it, but it made the wedding late by a few hours.

    • 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.
