      The huppah on the beach is 2.5 x 2.5 meters, Eva recommend 10 meters to decorate which equals 10 yards.  I ordered the fabric to decorate from the site below which I got from a previous bride's on this site:

       



      Hi Aimeelaco

       

      Have you seen pictures of the cakes? I have been trying to reach coordinator and no response!

      Do you know if you have extras like a chocolate fountain?

       

      Anyone know the height of huppah on the beach? I saw it on this site but it was in meters.

      I want to make sure I am ordering right sizes.

       

      I havent heard back from Eva in almost a month now I am so frustrated!

        For the reception tables I did ask Eva and her response was 1.8 meteres in diameter which equals about 70 inch round table.  I asked her some follow up questions but have to receive a response.  I think the safe route is to order table cloths of 120" because depending on if its an 8 or 10 person table it will go to the ground or slightly above.  Think this is a safe size to go with.

        Do you know the dimensions of the chairs with white covers that are used for beach ceremonies?--Just want to make sure I order the right size chair sashes (bows)??

         

        Also, I need to know the dimensions of the reception tables for the table cover?

          Hi Dominique,

           

          We are actually getting married about a week a part :)  so not to freak you out but this is something you must know. The Ultimate package provides cocktail hour and reception dinner for up to 20 people however these people MUST stay at the resort.  If your guest are not staying at the resort you should look into the most simple package which is actually free of cost to you and then add on everything to it for an extra fee.  $16 p/p for cocktail hour & & $48p/p for dinner. Since you have a small party you can do a semi private dinner at one of the restaurant (which will be free) and then go dancing to the Desires lounge. Also when your guest are not staying at the resort they have to buy a day pass to come to your wedding which is I believe $80 per person.  Hope this helps with you decision making, happy planning.

          None of my guests will be staying at the DRC. Does anyone know how much taxis will be from Cancun & Play del Carmen?

            I haven't seen any pictures of the cakes. I just sent her a picture of what I wanted and she quoted me a price :) 

            I hope this helps!

              Holy Moly I get married in 2 weeks!!!!

               

              They cakes that are included in the wedding package is a VERY plain and simple sheet cake. Anything extra, is extra $. We upgraded a little. I just sent Yamina a cake I saw online and told her what I wanted a little different and then she just got back to me on a price. Same with flowers and centerpieces. Everything they "show you" (email) whats included is very simple. So I just found pictures I liked online and emailed them to her, and just asked if it was going to be extra and how much extra. Pretty much have to figure it all out on your own because its not like you can sit down with the baker or the florist and discuss what your taste is and what you like/dislike.

               

              I LOVE tres leches cake. So we are choosing that. But I have realized every tres leches cake I have tried have been a little different but it is very moist (almost runny) because it is a cake that is soaked in 3 different milks. If I can recall from the one time I made it, its evaporated milk, condensed milk and ????? I forgot the third! lol

               

              P.s. I ordered my chair sashes and table runners from weddinglinensdirect.com. They are tiffany blue/teal satin and I will be selling them when I return if any one is interested. I think I have like 50 sashes and 10 table runners. (they come in a pack of 10) Let me know if you are interested!

                    Yes we will definitely have to meet up! I am jealous that you are going to be there so long.  I'm starting to feel like a week isn't long enough especially because several guests are staying for the same amount of time.  We were thinking of taking another trip a couple months after and calling that our honeymoon :) What are your wedding colors? How many people are you expecting?

                      I am confused if I want to wear a veil or not for a beach wedding.  Is anyone wearing a veil? I was thinking that it might be windy and just get in the way
