Ladies,

I am crazy I am getting all my reviews out of the way so that I can begin working on my thesis once again starting tomorrow. I just got back last night and I am doing a million things to clear my head and make space for work mode once again. I did my Paradisus Riviera Cancun Review in it's own thread and now the vendors....

 

DJ Mannia- Carlos A+

He was a pleasure to work with. Incredibly professional- he responded to emails in a timely manner and met with us once we were down in Mexico to go over a few things. The wedding day he was awesome. He was there with two other guys Tony and I can't remember the other persons name. He announced all the right things and played my suggested playlist appropriately. Honestly, I don't have any complaints at all. We had a dancing crowd and he did an awesome job at keeping us all out there and mixing in Spanish /English music. It was important for us to have both. The only thing that stunk was that it started raining and we had to end slightly earlier than expected to save his gear but we brought the party to the lobby and it was all good. Out of his control.smile72.gif

 

Ajua Weddings- Mariachis A+

I found Ajua through googling when I was looking for maraichis in the riviera maya. The rate at PRC was so high that i figured that even if I had to pay an outside fee it made sens if it kept me on budget. Stephanie was also prompt and easy to work with. Emails were answered quickly and payments were made through paypal. When the 6 piece mariachi band filed in after the ceremony I seriously started jumping around. It was so beautiful. They looked awesome in their cream colored outifts and the lead singer had an awesome voice. This got our party started off right and I highly reccommend them. Also for the price that PRC was charging for 3 person band I got 6 with Ajua.

 

PartyFlops- A

I ordered my wedding favors from Alex months ago and loved loved loved them when I saw them in person. There was a shipping issue which is why I gave him an A instead of A+. I'm not sure what can really be changed to avoid that but it stressed me out like crazy to not have them there at the resort when I arrived. After a phone call from my wedding coordinator he was in touch with her and she went to pick the box up. (amazing). These flip flops were a hit and quite affordable in my opinion. It was so fun to see everyone dancing with them right from the get go. They also come wrapped nicely with matching ribbon- all I did was tag them with people's names. It was perfect!

 

DelSol Photography- Matt Adcock- A+

So I have not seen one single picture yet but I am giving him an A+ becuase I think when you put out positive things into the universe they come back to you. Literally every picture that I have seen that he has taken is awesome so I am assuming that mine will be too. :) Seriously though- Matt worked through some ups and downs with T and I during the planning process and when we met him it was as if we already knew each other. He arrived at my room as I was getting ready and all my girls that were hanging out were all googly eyes within 30 minutes. He's charming, puts people at ease and is a pro. His assistant Paco went and took some shots of the guys and T says that he was great too. Put everyone at ease and just was shooting away. He was unobtrusive during the ceremony but all my guests were raving about how amazing he was. We opted for only a few posed shots of family- and he did those and when he saw a shot he would just tell us to do something. It was all very easy and truth be told we just wanted him to stay and party with us when he was done. Now I just have to wait patiently....

I've been so busy that we havent had much time to get on the forum to talk as much as we should, sorry I am just seeing this testimonial!

Yamille, you are a sweetheart! I loved hanging with your gang and seriously, I thank you for the amazing hospitality extended by you both and your guests. We had an amazing time and thank you for allowing us to share these emotions with you! Terry is an awesome guy and we wish you both an awesome future together!

Saludos!

PS... edited to add that i felt RIGHT AT HOME with all your theatre folks... I think it was not a coincidence that I have a theatre degree like yourself and 90% of your homies! :)

    • The two people who matters the most in this situation? You and your partner. It is nice to get an outside opinion but if you have too much of it? It will get messy! I am replying you my response after that has happened to me with my wedding. Although it is quite hard, do not think of the negative opinions. The people who will turn up to your wedding? You will always cherish them even more! That is what has happened with me because my friendship with the people who attended my wedding has improved so much more that I know I can rely on them and they can rely on me. It is disappointing that people will not attend your wedding but it is their loss, not yours. At the end of the day, when they see pictures and videos of your big day they will definitely regret missing out on such event. I am waiting to deal with the aftermath of my wedding from my so called friends, if they say anything they will get an earful! Happy planning, your big day will be worth it! Keep us up to date!
    • Wow, I cannot believe it's been over a year since I last posted! Better keep everyone up to date as everything ended up positive in the end! So, let's start with the situation with W. From my previous post, I have serious consideration removing him from the groomsmen because of the hurtful things he has said to me. Not too after my second post, I asked him once again whether he wants to be part of the groomsmen. The response was around the lines of "I need more solid information". This was before the restriction were lifted. Then he said it was down to finances yet again, even though he said he could have made it but because of what A said, W didn't commit no more. As W was being difficult, I decided to drop him as a groomsmen altogether and replaced him with someone else. Plan B was already in motion and tbh, I wish I did this first to avoid any hassle. Everyone who got invited in plan B all committed themselves to the wedding!  The situation with A is this. I was feeling sad that I was losing this friendship and that spark with him was gone. By the time it was gone, A was "ready" to meet up with me to discuss life and the wedding. When I said I lost spark with him, I really did. I knew that he was ready to meet up with me because it was convenient for him. For example, he wanted to meet up with me because he was driving past my house or was in the area visiting his relative. If he was not doing those things he would not want to meet up with me. Needless to say, every time he kept asking, I just said I was busy. I think deep down something was not right between me and A but he does not want to acknowledge it. I know that W had FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) because that's what he is like. Around the end of last year, rather than messaging me about the DW he went behind my back and asked my SO. He was scared of asking me because he knows if he asked me, I would literally get angry at him. He's nosey and was happy enough to be part of the groomsmen but he listened to A. W didn't asked once but twice to mg SO. My SO just said that she was busy and should ask me about the wedding, not her. W did messagee but not about the wedding plans. I felt this was a sly move by his part. If anything not having A and W there was a blessing in disguise. I met up with the other 4 groomsmen over one weekend and it turns out it was the most fun we all have had for a while. It was as if we continued from the previous conversations in the past as if nothing has changed. I am so glad and proud of this group of groomsmen and glad the other 2 dropped out. The suit fitting went really well and we hung out again to see whether the suits altered fitted or not.  Unfortunately my SO UK group, 5 out of 6 declined the invite. Only 1 accepted it. The other 5 had reasons ranging from good ones to poorer ones 😅 As long one of them turned up then it was good enough for us. My SO's bridesmaids also were amazing. No problems caused whatsoever and they were really excited that our wedding was abroad too! To make things work out before our DW, myself and SO planned out 2 weekends for both groomsmen and bridesmaids to hang out before the DW. We did this so we would not encounter any awkwardness for the first time in DW. Lo and behold, everyone got to know each other and we really are happy that the wedding party weekend went smoothly. I will keep this ambiguous because I do not want A and his group finding out. I got married to my SO this year. What time and month? I will leave this intentionally blank. The wedding itself was everything we have expected. The wedding planner was amazing. The photographer was also amazing too, so glad we went for him. The sneak peak photos are absolutely great, couldn't imagine that the photos turned out like that. The good itself was okay could be better but could be worse. The first dance went relatively well although my SO managed to cock up s move which only I know hahahaha. The wedding ceremony itself went really quickly. I was a bag of nerves to which one of the groomsmen bought the groomsmen a shot each to calm everyone down. It did calm me down for a little bit but the nerves started again with the speeches. I got emotional throughout the speeches. I was not expecting the tear up with the best man speech at all. My speech was meant for my SO but for some reason everyone in the room also cried as well 😂 The all night dancing and fun was the best bit. When every serious part was done, I was able to stop being nervous! The fun went through the whole night and I can see everyone really enjoyed themselves. It was as if myself and SO correctly guess that lockdown restrictions would end. Everyone was thankful that they managed to take part in the DW because they all have been stranded in the country for 3 years! Do I regret having a DW? Hell no! Although it was a smaller party everything was all under control. Everyone had a great time!  More information about my UK group. Some of them congratulated us which was nice to hear. Those congratulated us, I can keep contact. They knew it was difficult coming to DW. At least they are mature enough to say something about it and they did not get the invite. On the other hand, A and W kept constantly monitoring my account for updates along with my SO. It got to the point that W really FOMO that he I followed our stories/posts. A on the other hand is completely out of order. He was invited to DW but made it really uncomfortable to me that he was not happy with DW. During that week, he went on holiday to Spain. I get that Spain is much more cheaper than my DW but it still is annoying. A also said before that he has a few weddings to attend during our DW month. He has not attended any weddings which makes me think that he has lied to me. A and W has lied to me saying it was costly for them to come to my DW. They have both bought PlayStation 5 and went to many designer outlets. If they are so stumped on money why go and buy things? It just shows that they are not good friends at all. Overall good DW. I do not regret it one bit because I know if I did it in the UK, the experience will be a lot different. The UK definitely not as scenic as my DW! 🤣    
    • Hi ! Myself and partner got engaged 7 months ago and we quite quickly asked our friends who we wanted in our wedding party (e.g bridesmaids, MOH and best men etc) who all agreed. After searching many English venues we have decided that we want to marry abroad, our dream is Mexico. We have been and priced this up today and we are incredibly happy. So we have put this forward to our friends and family who we really want there and now we are facing issues. My MOH and my partners Best man are together with a child, they now will not come unless we change to Spain or Greece. My brother, his wife and nephew can only come in one set week which isn't the time we want to marry and also will not come to Mexico. And both our Grandmother's won't come to Mexico.   What do we do? Do we carry on and go to Mexico with the people who will come or do we change our dreams and go to Spain or Greece?  Thoughts please, I'm getting to the point where I don't even want to marry as I'm fed up of friends and family ruining our ideas and dreams with their opinions. 
    • What purpose does a ring actually have? I think they look nice, but to me, wearing a ring doesn’t mean a damn thing. I’m engaged. I’m in a happy, healthy and strong relationship. And to be fully honest if you are ever in a relationship that you’d be willing to risk because of the price of an engagement ring, your partner could do better.
    • My name is Marshall and I’m getting married in Punta Cana in June I am in search of a rabbi could you please help me
