        Hey guys:

         

        We just returned from our wedding at DRC on Thursday.  We stayed there from 10/23-11/04.  Since we've been so busy with being back to work and having our new puppy home, I have not gotten a chance to sit down and write a review.  I will do it hopefully this weekend but I do want to share our slideshow.

            Gorgeous wedding! LOVE your bouquet- did you have to pay extra or was it included in the wedding package?

              Thank you.  I chose this bouquet from their pictures.  It's their tropical bouquet.  Yes, this was included in the package.  The only thing I forgot to be specific about what to tell the WC that I  the stems left long.  When I received the flowers, they were on the plastic holder stemless.  But it was okay.  They were beautiful, so I didn't mind too much. And as far as color, I just told her to make sure they were in the orange color palette.

                Hello again!

                 

                I just re-read your planning thread...we have recently decided to do the legal part in Michigan and do a Symbolic Ceremony in Mexico..we are also having our friend do the Ceremony in Mexico...can you tell me how this was run?  Did he do the entire Ceremony..including the Sand Ceremony etc?  Also...did you sign anything?  We are not telling our family we are doing the legal part here so we want it to "look" legal.  I think another Bride said even though it was a Symbolic Ceremony they did sign a faux Certificate during...did you?

                 

                Thanks SO much for all your help!

                Sarah

                  Hi Rick...

                   

                  I have a few questions..if you don't mind!

                   

                  We are doing the Eggplant color as well - we are bringing down the Chair Bows because it is so much cheaper.  I LOVE the fabric on the Gazebo..did you provide that or did the resort do that?  I'm not sure I want the bows..but I love how the fabric wraps around!  Could you tell me what the cost was?  Also..did you have flowers on your Ceremony table??

                   

                  Thanks SO much!

                  Sarah

                  I paid $2500 for La Luna - Not including the extra cost (approx 80 for their day pass x 2 + $50 x 2 tip - split between the 2 photographers) - I would budget $2800 total

                   

                  @jkhowell - Thank you too! See answer to La Luna above - the small sand ceremony was provided by Dreams - when we returned to our room at the end of our night the small sand filled vase was on our coffee table with a bottle of champagne. I am assuming they have all the colors you want - just let them know ahead of time.. So no need to bring down your own unless you want a bigger sand ceremony. :)

                    Hi Sarah,

                    I paid a couple hundred dollars (I think... as my memory is fading) for the gazebo decor.. Originally I wanted to have one solid color on all 4 sides of the gazebo (arches) - but the price came back like $500 or so dollars - so I asked if they could just do the front side and twist up the 2 colors (puriple/white) and they did it. As for those small bows - I didnt ask for that or choose that color they just put them there.. I didn't know there would be bows but I just rolled with it. After the ceremony they took it down and re-used it for the entry way for the reception which I had no idea they were going to do. As seen here

                     

                    076.jpg182.jpg

                     

                     

                    For the ceremony table we used one of the centerpieces that were going to go to the reception afterwards - Part of the package included the ceremony flowers and also one for the bride and groom table - we chose this style for the ceremony table and our table and simply had them make a few more of these for the other tables - For the extras they charged an arm and leg - I want to say something like 180 each extra (I know right - get the vase, throw some flowers and water in it) - but they also laid down petals and stuff on the table.

                     

                    073.jpg177.jpg

                     

                    We really liked this style but didnt have any interest in trying to bring down these glass vases - worried that they could break - so in this case - I paid for the convenience.

                     

                    One very important thing I should say to all the future brides is that in this type of destination wedding situation you kind of have to roll with the odd "misses" that occur and roll with the punches - Expect to pay more - they pull it all together in one day and some things may not play out exactly how you want. When the show starts - that's it - you will be on cloud 9 and all the small details go away.

                     

                    I hope that helps.... ALSO for anyone who wants to ask me any question please PM me because I am not paying such close attention to this thread and questions for me might get missed.
