My question is did they charge you for the curtains around the room? When I met with the wedding coordinator she told me its $1000 for the curtains but I think they are always up!!! I do not think I should be charged for something that is never taken down...

     

            


    Hi.  Thanks.  I honestly don't know if any of that is extra.  The reason for my reception happening in the ballroom was due to rain.  They just told me that it would be set up with the things I had chosen like the lights and lanterns.  I was really afraid what that was going to look like but they assured me that it was already decorated.  I think I might have luck out because while my whole entire stay there were conferences there everyday.  Lots of companies, so that might have been why it was curtained off.  Sorry I can't clarify more for you.

      Yes, I brought down chair bows, table overlays, fans to be placed at the ceremony site.  And they do not charge to place these things for you.  You just go over with them how you want things and they do it.

        Quote:you can bring your own and no they dont charge you can take anything that you want for your wedding, give it to them and they will set it up :) If you are going to send stuff prior you do have to be carefull as there are restrictions on what you can send. Hope this helps :) Petal Keine

          How was dinner on the pool deck?  I was curious if it was really windy and or cold for the reception part.  I have done dinner on the beach before and the wind REALLY kicks up.

          Thanks

          Ok, so I've been back for exactly two weeks and I kept meaning to post some of these.  As I mentioned previously, I really didn't pay for much extra stuff at all.  I paid for 12 lanterns (on two stands) and for 6 bridesmaid bouquets, which cost $80 each and I re-used for the centerpieces and the vases, which cost me $10 each.  That was all I added besides extra meals (I didn't have the cocktail party, I used the credit towards dinners).  I forgot to mention that I just paid for the sound technician and made a kick-a$$ playlist (I just had him play it from start to finish)!  I had one list for dinner music, one list for dancing and a CD for the first dance and father daughter dance.  It worked out amazingly well!  We had my brother in law MC, so the tech didn't have to say a word.

           

          I attached pictures to give you an idea of what your set-up might look like without adding too much.  Here's what I brought:  sand dollars as place cards and a wood tray to set them in sand, tealight candle holders in teal and white (I think we had 5 for each table), LED tea lights, teal ribbon to put one strip around each chair, menus that I glued onto teal cardstock and they were tucked into the white napkins, teal sticks from the flower shop to hold the table numbers in the BM bouquets I re-used.  I brought NOTHING for the ceremony, just the flowers for the table which were included (multicoloured).  The bridesmaid dresses were a vibrant teal and that was plenty of colour.  So everything was white except for a few little touches of teal for the reception.

           

          She added another 12 lanterns and the white flags for free as a surprise.  I thought it was gorgeous and the whole thing cost us almost nothing over the package price!

           

          Here's the link to our slideshow but to be honest... for some reason, he chose some pretty bad shots of us to include in it.  There were so many stunning ones (that we ended up choosing) so why, I'm not sure! haha.  http://030511wolkove.dreamsriveriacancun.adventurephotos.com.mx/

          Let me know if you have any questions for me and trust me when I say.. DO NOT STRESS!  It will turn out better than you can imagine, even if you do NOTHING before heading down there.

              I haven't heard from Gina as quickly as usual either, maybe they are extra busy.  Let's hope since we have two weeks to go!!!!!!

                      Are we allowed to pay the grand total when we arrive in mexico?  Or was anyone allowed to pay installments prior to arrival? 

                       

                      ALSO has anyone received the 2012 pricing list yet? 

                       

                      Thanks!
