    I purchased my tulle on Ebay here: 

    PAST BRIDES....my colors are turquoise and orange. I am torn about chair sashes! I kind of want turquoise ones...are the chairs too plain with just the white covers? And..does anyone how much the resort charges for the chair sashes? I realize we can get them cheap online, but I am trying to minimize suitcases. With all the OOT bags and such....I feel like I have everything except the kitchen sink!

      Does that mean we'd be forced to pay the rate the resort is asking for a DJ?

        I guess I would be careful how it's worded. 

         

        You aren't looking for a "credit".  Maybe try again and say...I realize it wouldn't be an even exchange - could I get 10 dinner's in exchange for the Cocktail Hour?

        "I've heard of some other brides doing this in order to save money. Instead of having my cocktail hour can I apply that to my reception so cover the cost of the additional guests I will have? This information is incorrect, the cost of the cocktail is different than the cost of the reception,  since the packages  are fixed, we are not allowed to credit anything from the packages towards something else. "

        Additional Bar is $15/person.  I'm reading it like...if you decided to add an hour to your reception - 4 hours total - then you just pay the bar cost..$15/person. 

         

        Not sure I'm reading it correctly though...

            I know these are not good news for you but I have to inform you.

             

            Yesterday I went to Dreams Riveira Cancun to talk with the General Manager about the agreement between Dreams Riviera Cancun and Doremixx, and due to their new policies we are not allowed to work with them, also we can`t offer our services even if you want to pay the outside vendor fee, now they are cancelling all the DJ services that we have already booked trough them.

             

            Since today they will be using their own in house DJ, please contact your WC, I am sure they will give you the best option for DJ.

             

            I apologize for all the incoveniences with this, but we can`t get a good deal with them.

             

            Best,

              ATTENTION ALL BRIDES...

               

              We should send an email to our WC's and the General Manager regarding the Doremixx news...

               

              Maybe if we swamp them with emails they'll rethink??!!  It's worth a shot..right??????????

                Do you have any pictures of the bridesmaid with the parasols.  Definitely think it's a wonderful idea. 

                 

                Thank you:)

                    Hello I am using Destination weddings as well.  I had a great coordinator at Destination wedding until they placed me with someone else.  The lady that I am using currently at Destination Wedding is quite expensive, my guests are not happy.  Instead of giving them the best pricing, she quoted really high so they all book their trips through Bookit.com.  I am having about 50-60 guests coming to our wedding and about 40 of them have booked their trip through Max.Holley at bookit.comThe pricing is about 2000-2500 including airfare flying from San Jose California into Cancun for about 5-7 nights.  My wedding coordinator at destination weddings was quoting my guests around 3k to 4k.  We booked our trip through her but was informed if we canceled our trip then they would cancel the website that we have as well.  I am still confused on which room to book, either preferred plunge pool, Honeymoon suite, or Master Suite.  Thanks:)
