    There is but it is part of Excellence Riviera Cancun.  I told Anel I wanted photos there and she said yes even though we weren't supposed to use it.  Here is a link to my slideshow and video on the pier...

      Do you know how to use our free honeymoon nights? Do we have to call the hotel directly to book them or could we go through a TA? Also, do we have to use them at DRC? Or can we use them at any Dreams? 

      Yes I'm already thinking about my next trip in December ;)

      I think it has to be through them and directly over your anniversary.  I don't know all the details because my husband wants to go somewhere new!  He is crazy haha.

        Hey girls! We just got our slideshow link from Adventure Photos! I know some people have been asking about other photographers with Adventure (other than Anel) and I wanted to share our slideshow because we had Francisco as our photographer. He was awesome, really nice, and I think the pics turned out great - even though it rained as our ceremony was supposed to be starting! :)

         

        Here's the link: http://100113papp.<w...ephotos.com.mx/

         

        I know I was curious while we were waiting for our photos so in case anyone else wants to know about timing...we didn't have time to go through and choose our photos while we were there because they told us it would take a few hours and we couldn't fit it it. So after we got home, they sent us a link about 1 1/2 weeks after our wedding date. From there, we sent in the selection and had our slideshow 4 days later. They said our CD will be here within 2 weeks and the photo book within 6 weeks :)

         

        Our locations in the slideshow are the North Beach (ceremony), terrace outside entrance of Desires (cocktail hour), and Seaside Grill (reception).

          Ok, I finally finished up my planning thread!!! I've been needing to sit down and do it forever. I wanted to make sure I included everything because I used those SO much while planning! 

           

          Here is the link and if you have any questions let me know!

            Hi Girls...

             

            Okay so, maybe I am wrong and its 150 but i think i got quoted at 300 because if he brings someone with him its 300... its 150 a person. not sure if mike would need an assistant.

             

            I agree with what one of u said about them trying to squeeze every penny... i am having a saxaphone player for my ceremony (because i heard hear comes the bride on the sax and fell in love ) lol and they want  to charge me 50$ for the microphone for the ceremony. like okay, im paying a lot for the saxaphone player which i don't mind at all.... but also charging me 50$ to turn on a microphone so my guests could hear the ceremony is where i draw the line LOL

             

            Lorena also let me know that in 2013 there will be a fee to set up a table at the reception ( like with your place cards etc ). I wont be charged because i started planning a year ago but still im not a fan of this for future brides because even at an expensive wedding hall they would put out your place cards without charging you.

             

            I saw another girl ask about deliverin a welcome letter. . . i am having welcome bags delivered to each room for $3 each. i just think it is easier than meeting all my guests at the enterance since ill probably be in the pool lol

             

            21 days till i leave to go and i just keep thinking of more and more things i forgot to either order or organize lol ;) cant wait

                Yup, they will do custom! You could possibly even tell her my name and she might have history of my order. It would be under Savanah Cooper. I just told her what I wanted for our Save the Dates and the guest print and she sends you a preview of it before she prints it. So you can say yes or no. I had her make a 12x12 size for us. I found a cheap 12x12 frame at Michaels and left the glass at home and just put the picture in the frame once we got there without the glass and it worked out perfectly. I rolled the print back up and threw the frame away in Mexico and now have it framed nicely in our house :) You'll have to let me know if you order one!

                  Oh, I forgot - I just bought 2 regular sharpies but in silver. They were just the plain ones, not fine tip or anything. I tested it first in the corner to make sure it wouldn't smear and it worked out great!

                      Which DJ are you having trouble with? We booked AVI-SPL and they have been great with our communication. I haven't found many reviews for them but from what I've seen on their Facebook it seems like they do a lot of bigger events.
