I adore the sandals very stylish and classy.  I wish I can wear sandals too but with my frame, I would look too short and stumpy lol.

Just a thought, can you find some outside cigar roller and bring them in and pay the day pass, that's probably cheaper than paying 300 for a 10 cigars.  You can also stroll down to the beach and get a pack of 10 cigars for 30 dollars.

I really wanted to do both the cigar roller and the fire dancers.  i thought it would be a nice thing for my guests but at these prices i'm not going to do both and $300 for 10 cigars is crazy to me!

Lily,

 

I believe the outside vendor fee is like 55 or 65, I forgot.  I find that it's not just the resort that is inconsistent with their pricings it's the outside vendors too.  I was getting a quote from Deco Cancun and they are quoting me so high compared to one of the past bride from here.  I wrote to them and they said b/c the person that was there before made a mistake and she is no longer with them now.  In general, I believe the whole country does not have a set price, they can set whatever price they want and it is damn frustrating.

I honestly just don't understand why they don't have a set price list, like black & white, this is the way it is and these are the prices...frustrating to say the least.

 

Does anyone know what the current outside vendor fee is now?? I know its been discussed several times, but they're so back and forth, who knows. I think I recall being excited since it dropped from $500 to...$50? Am I making this up? I can't remember...

I think I may have chosen food off of the silver menu instead of the gold menu also. If I could do it over again I may have went with the love package. No biggie though and I'm sure it will all work out well! I'll let you know all of the details after the wedding!

Yes- very frustrating. Its bad enough that they hardly reply and ignore direct questions but its even more frustrating that everyone is getting a different answer.
No wonder everyone says to keep your emails as back up for when you get down there!

I was getting quotes from Deco Cancun too but it seems to be a pain!  All I want is somebody to drape fabric on the Gazebo..maybe I can buy my own fabric and have somebody hang it..?  I don't like it when they put the flowers on it..

I've read on here a bunch of times, people bringing their own fabric to the resort for the Gazebo.  and i also remember reading that they werent charged for it either.  Hope this helps. :)

I am purchasing the gazebo fabric from ebay.  They have some nice satin fabric on there that is really cheap.  I think I am going to cancel my whole deal with Deco.  The only reason I was using there are for the lanterns but since the resort offers them, there is no need for them.

I agree! I still haven't decided if I'll use the gazebo or the beach but I was going to bring in Deco or EW for those nice lanterns and maybe some comfy benches for the reception on the pool deck - but I can live without the benches if the resort offers the lanterns.
I had no idea they offered the lanters!! It doesn't say anything about it in the brochure! But now I'm a bit worried if they'll have my colors or not worried2.gif

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
