ssapper- Thanks for the heads up. We have a few outside vendors like Fernandeo Fuentes and Ew Events as our outoutside vendors for our wedding on 12.10.2011. Not a happy camper with the resort!!!

 

6 kids & 19 Adults + Bride & Groom booked

I'm devastated about this as I was really hoping to use an outside photographer for my wedding. I've been trying to get a response from Ana in regards to this new outside vendor policy but she has been avoiding the question. I'm going to try and call her this afternoon to get an official in writing response.

 

Just wanted to give everyone a heads up. Has anyone else had problems with this recently???

 

Thanks!

Ssapper: Have you heard from Ana on this matter yet? I was thinking of using EW for my flowers.

Hey My Lovely's,

 

We're back from an AMAZING stay and wedding at DRC.  Honestly, the entire trip was a dream.  We arrived and immeditely after giving our names at check in, the ushered us to VIP check in at the Preferred Club where we were upgraded from Ocean View to a Ocean Front Honeymoon Suite.  We were able to see so many weddings and had a fabulous view (Room 2301).  The romantic dinner on the beach (included in the Ultimate Package) was to die for.  Veronica was our WC and she was phenomenal to work with.  EVERYTHING that I asked for was nailed for the wedding. I honestly cannot say enough about her.  I used EW Cancun for our outside vendor and Raff was also a dream to work with.  We traveled down with 34 guests and they are all still talking about the "happy high" they are still on from their stay there.  The food was good, rooms great, resort is kept immaculate and they honestly made me feel like a princess the entire 10 days that we were there. I got to meet Lisa and Lindsay a few times and I believe Ursula quickly when we were leaving Desires on our wedding night. They were GORGEOUS brides and so lovely to chat with. All my girls were happy with the job that the salon did on their hair and we had a MAC makeup artist fly down to do all of our make up.  The entire wedding day went off flawlessly and it truly was magical.  I don't get on here nearly as often as I would like to but I know hearing feedback from past brides always made me feel better especially in the final weeks leading up to May 8th for our wedding.  Good luck to future DRC brides and I can say without hesitation, based on our wedding, you can choose this resort for your wedding with confidence.  Here are the slideshows for our wedding and the TTD. Elina from the resort shot both :-)

Cheers,

Melissa: Congrats! You had great weather and your pics look beautiful!

 

I have a question: What services did EW provide you with? I am really considering using them for my centerpeices and renting from them their poles with lanterns and just getting the rest of the flowers (bouquets, boutinnaires, ceremony centerpeices) from DRC since they are included in the package. What do you recommend?

 

Thanks!

    • 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.
