Did anyone rent out one of the restaurants for their wedding reception at DRC?  We're getting married in August and think it might be too hot at night.  I really like the one with the glass windows over the water.  It looks beautiful.  Anyway, it says it is 35 extra head.  I am curious how long you rented it for, if you have a full on reception with DJ and such and what it cost you.  Thanks!

HI Lindsey,

I am getting married next weekend and we rented out El Patio for our welcome dinner at $15 per person. We are using the pool deck for the wedding night. THey do have a ballroom you can use as well (depends on how many people you have). If you go w ballroom, then you need decor for it which can get pricey. It will be hot but its windy down at the beach so it's not that bad. And the views are amazing!

Chrissy,

 

Did you get a spreadsheet of how much your wedding will cost yet?  Are you using DecoCancun as your outside vendor?

Hi Lindsay,

I decided not to use Deco Cancun after reading this blog. The hotel has everything that you need. I am bringing fuschia overlays for the tables (72 in) from weddinglinensdirect.com. I ordered centerpieces and the tall lanterns from the hotel which will end up being cheaper than using outside vendor- the set up and tear down fees were a lot. I work in a high end hotel and DRC has everything you need onsite. If you want I can email you the budget. We have about 68 guests and have the Ultimate package. I did rent out El Patio for $12 pp (which was quoted to me last year but has gone up this year to $15 per person).My wedding will be just under $10K which is what we budgeted for!

Hi Chrissy!  I was wondering if you could email me your budget? I still have a while before my wedding (2012) but I am really trying to stay on top of things and get all of my ideas and things down now so that when it is time to deal with the WC's I know everything I want and have a ballpark figure of my costs. I'm sure they will change for 2012.  Did you send the resort photos of what you wanted for your centerpieces? I really didn't want to deal with an outside vendor for decorations but I wasn't sure what the resort would have. Did you rent out El Patio for a rehearsal dinner? I am still up in the air about that because of the extra cost. My email is akom1010@gmail.com  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.
