    OH NO!  Why did you do that?!  Ok, I had been in contact with them already and was working to get exactly the same thing. They are working on a package granted enough interest is presented.  The cheapest package they offer is $225 and is a combo of added items that last roughly 1-2 minutes. If you're looking for a longer show, then it will add up quite a bit. Also, they have centerpieces that are spectacular that are $85 a piece.  As soon as I get the exacts from her, AFTER she gets the approval as a vendor from DRC, I was going to post that info as I stated before. I'm sorry if this wasn't conveyed clearly before. The package that I'm working with her on at the moment is roughly $600 and last 1-2 minutes as a "finishing act" to the wedding. Not like a 4th of july show lol

Is she kidding me..... good luck to those who do hire this company, I will enjoy your pictures. lol

      Hey!  I also found a cake vendor, this is what she stated in the email.

       

      I've seen some nice cakes at DRC, and some horror stories so here is another option if anyone is interested. I'm trying to cut corners as much as possible

       

       

      Hola Courtney,  

      Receive our warm congratulation on your up coming wedding.

      We have made cakes for Dreams Riviera Cancun Hotel, don´t worry about it.

      I need to have as much information as possible in order to calculate how labor/design work intensive will the cake be and quote you with the final price but our prices range between $ 5 and $9 usd per person (+ delivery fee ).

      Do you have any idea about the cake´s design?....

      Dolcet is a company created for the pleasure of making desserts. We create experiences by making personalized and unique cakes that reflect preferences, dreams, emotions which perpetuate the moment forever.

      Sweet Regards,

      Zaida Marcos

        OK!  FIREWORKS! 

         

        I'm still working with the vendor to get the bridal package underway. She stated that she has to get the official a-ok from the resort to be an approved vendor and its different because of the equipment, however, they have had them there before so she doesn't think it'll be a problem.  After she gets that, she'll work with me on a "bridal package" and then present it to her supervisor. So what sort of items would you guys like to see...IF you went this route? Do you just want the little fountains around the dance floor? or the fountains out of the centerpieces, or *boom/pow* display? lol.  This is FUN!  I do some of this for a living so I'm having a ball!!!  Sorry if i was brash in my response Chula201, she got a little thrown with what seems like a run around of 2 people trying to do the same thing and didn't know what was happening.

          Ok ladies

           

          I've received an email from the pyro tech folks. They sent me a preliminary wedding PDF and I'll send it to everyone that has emailed me or that I have emailed.  The manager and the lady I was talking to stated that they are going to the resort this week to meet  with them to discuss a few things regarding their agreement as a vendor.  That said, she said she will email me once they get  the final ok and we can discuss a package of sorts. This is getting exciting!

                      I feel so behind :(  Our wedding is May 23rd 2012 and we haven't even told our guests about where to book and who to book with. Gah! I'm stressing.
