        Thank you!!  We loved it and our guests thought our reception was amazing!   ok..  so as for the fabric for ceremont and chair ties, overlays, centerpieces w flowers we used deco cancun!  i cant RAVE enough about what an amazing job they did and it was SOOOO much cheaper than the hotel!  I think I pd 50.00 for the ceremony fabric and dreams wanted to charge 300.   As for centerpieces w flowers and candles 20 bucks!  Actually 18 to be exact!!!!   I also purchased the lanterns , couches w pillows...  from deco cancun  .. I think I pd a total of 1400 including everything for deco cancun and they actually brought extra table centerpieces.  I think I only pd for 9 and they brought 11....maybe double that because they put two on a table.  I wouldnt get the tall candles surrounding the beach. It wasnt worth it and they actually refunded our money.  I would have probably went with 4 of the standing poles with lanterns, they really made it look gorgeous....    as for the centerpieces with candles. They didnt light, but that was ok..  If they didnt fill the water so high maybe they would have..  but it didnt matter. I thought they were gorgeous. 

         

        I bought all the crystals for the tables at michaels..  and also bought the starfish, big and small and spray painted them my colors..  they were a perfect accent on the tables. and for the ceremony runner.

         

        I wouldnt have done the bling disposable

        Hi pbjwed,

         

        I saw your pictures on Facebook and absolutely loved all of them! I was wondering, did you bring all of the fabric for the chairs and tables yourself? Did you also bring the pink and orange lanterns that are hanging? Your centerpieces are very nice, did you have to bring the vases or is that one of the options that they give you? Since the candles were kind of protected by the vases did they stay lit? Sorry for all of the questions :-)!!

            My new coordinator Lisbeth sent me an email stating the "day" passes are 55.00 from 9am-5pm and ANOTHER 55.00 from 6pm-11pm...WHAT?!?  Why would our guests have to pay 110.00 for the whole day when we are paying for their meals at a private event??  This really makes me mad

              I wonder if we are still allowed to use Deco Cancun now that they are charging the $500 outside vendor fee... would we have to pay $500 to have Deco Cancun come in?  Does anyone know?  PBJWED - your wedding was beautiful!

                Thanks! They tried to do this to me too when they changed the rule, but i fought it and said it was already decided upon that we were using Juan Navarro and we had already put a deposit down on him... she ended up "checking with her manager" and said because it was a previously accepted deal they would honor it... I think you should try to fight it too if you can- its worth a shot!!

                    It will be interesting to see what they say- My coordinator up here emailed the director of the resort.  Ill let you know his response!

                      Hey Janine! Did you know that you are on the marketing video for DRC on bookit.com? I watched it the other day as I sent a few guests there to book (prices are very good on that site BTW, even for Canadians) and I totally recognized you on the video being interviewed (after seeing your wedding pics, you are hard to forget cause you're GORGEOUS! LOL) so I thought I would mention it...thanks for all the helpful planning info and the suggestions on deco cancun and stuff. Did you say you had a excel sheet that you used to track everything? I would LOVE if you could email that to me at lindsayspencer@live.ca. You had an AMAZING wedding...so organized and truly perfect down to the last detail...well done! Hope you are enjoying your newlywed days :-)
