    My travel agent told me that they do a max of two weddings per day

      SDBeach girl yeah I was worried about that too so we are looking into lights under the table as well, we had initially thought candles but guess they might not stay lit if its windy out

      do you know if they are all one colour? is it just white light?

      again sorry to be a pest - jeez I have so much time - but fire dancers? fireworks? has anyone know a vendor for either of these, good or bad experience? Thanks - you girls really are my sanity for the last couple of months!

        You welcome ladies. I am glad that Ana sent the slideshow to me. I thought the wedding looked very pretty.

        As for the stairs I like that we are going down the stairs but we just have to be careful not to fall. lol

          Boo, are you getting a DJ? Some of them provide cold fireworks. For example, DJ Doremixx does this.

          As for other fireworks or fire dancers, I don't know! Which is why I haven't responded before. I'm guessing other girls don't know either and that's why you haven't gotten an answer on here. However, I'd be curious to know about fire dancers as well! Have you tried asking Ana?

          You could also try searching or asking this question on the RM/Cancun Vendors thread.

          Good Luck :)

            My personal thoughts are that it depends on the WC, and I also think on how much "work" you are as a bride, lol. I mean if you book your date and then basically just show up and get married, I might tip a little if all goes well, but if you have sent Ana a million emails and have lots of requests, and she does a great job answering your questions and making your day amazing, then I would say a decent size tip is in order if you can swing it. Just a nice way to say thank you I think :)

            Also, just curious, who are you using for a DJ? Or is this someone coming with your group from home?
            Thanks for your input, Princess! We are bringing are friend who is a DJ in NY.

              Hi

              Was wondering if any of your other wedding parties had more than 40 guests? It seems really pricy for add on guests for the chairs, reception dinner,drinks etc? Did anyone else find this?
              Also for the private reception on your wedding night, did you have to pay extra for the drinks on that night? I thought as an all "inclusive" it would be included?

              Thoughts....?

                From what i've been told - the extra charges for the private reception and cocktail hour are for the extra staff required to serve your event and the set up fees. When we looked at non all inclusive resorts the dinner/open bar usually ran $100-$150 per person...so although it still really adds up, in the end it is still cheaper than going for a non all inclusive resort.

                We invited 150, and so far have 46 confirmed, we expect somewhere between 60-70.

                      Just wondering if any of you had thought of having a signature drink at your reception or cocktail hour? I saw some really cool photos of a wedding where the guests were all drinking this bright blue drink. It looked so cool! Anyhow, I sent an email to Ana asking if the resort has a signature drink. I'm sure most of my guests would prefer wine or something a little less crazy, but I think it would be fun to start them off with this.
                      I love this idea! Has Ana responded to you about this? It does sound like a fun way to start the evening!
