My travel agent told me that they do a max of two weddings per day

SDBeach girl yeah I was worried about that too so we are looking into lights under the table as well, we had initially thought candles but guess they might not stay lit if its windy out

 

do you know if they are all one colour? is it just white light?

 

again sorry to be a pest - jeez I have so much time - but fire dancers? fireworks? has anyone know a vendor for either of these, good or bad experience? Thanks - you girls really are my sanity for the last couple of months!

You welcome ladies. I am glad that Ana sent the slideshow to me. I thought the wedding looked very pretty.

 

As for the stairs I like that we are going down the stairs but we just have to be careful not to fall. lol

Boo, are you getting a DJ? Some of them provide cold fireworks. For example, DJ Doremixx does this.

As for other fireworks or fire dancers, I don't know! Which is why I haven't responded before. I'm guessing other girls don't know either and that's why you haven't gotten an answer on here. However, I'd be curious to know about fire dancers as well! Have you tried asking Ana?

You could also try searching or asking this question on the RM/Cancun Vendors thread.

Good Luck :)

My personal thoughts are that it depends on the WC, and I also think on how much "work" you are as a bride, lol. I mean if you book your date and then basically just show up and get married, I might tip a little if all goes well, but if you have sent Ana a million emails and have lots of requests, and she does a great job answering your questions and making your day amazing, then I would say a decent size tip is in order if you can swing it. Just a nice way to say thank you I think :)

Also, just curious, who are you using for a DJ? Or is this someone coming with your group from home?
Thanks for your input, Princess! We are bringing are friend who is a DJ in NY.

Hi

 

Was wondering if any of your other wedding parties had more than 40 guests? It seems really pricy for add on guests for the chairs, reception dinner,drinks etc? Did anyone else find this?

Also for the private reception on your wedding night, did you have to pay extra for the drinks on that night? I thought as an all "inclusive" it would be included?

 

Thoughts....?

From what i've been told - the extra charges for the private reception and cocktail hour are for the extra staff required to serve your event and the set up fees. When we looked at non all inclusive resorts the dinner/open bar usually ran $100-$150 per person...so although it still really adds up, in the end it is still cheaper than going for a non all inclusive resort.

 

We invited 150, and so far have 46 confirmed, we expect somewhere between 60-70.

I saw some really cool photos of a wedding where the guests were all drinking this bright blue drink. It looked so cool! Anyhow, I sent an email to Ana asking if the resort has a signature drink. I'm sure most of my guests would prefer wine or something a little less crazy, but I think it would be fun to start them off with this.
I love this idea! Has Ana responded to you about this? It does sound like a fun way to start the evening!

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
