      I'm just wondering if anyone has anyone has any good advice. I'm really stressing out about informing my guests of the rates for the hotel. We are working with a recommended travel agent but even then, they are asking $1,064 per person in a garden view room for 5 nights not including flight. That just seems like a lot to ask! Any insight would help :) Thanks

        Does anyone know if you bring your own chair sashes do they put them on for you and if so do they charge you for that?

            Hello Ladies

             

            Odd question, What time will the groom start getting ready for the ceremony?

             

            Our ceremony is at 4.00pm

             

            Our guests are all staying in a different resort so he is going to stay at their resort for the night before the wedding and my bridesmaids are going to stay at DRC for the night with me

             

            So i need to know what time he should be back at DRC to start getting ready

             

            Hope you can Help!

              Good Morning/Afternoon girls,

               

              Are any of you having a legal ceremony out there? We are and i have just had an email back from the Mexican consulate saying that i need my birth certificate to be apostilled at the Foreign office. This is ok for me because i am not getting married untill August but just incase you didnt realise apparently you have to do this for using UK documents in a different country if you want it to be legal! Apparently some birth certificates may already have the stamp on but i only dug mine out at the weekend and realised it doesnt!!! No-one at any stage has told me about this so just letting you know if you are having a legal wedding to look out for it.

               

              S-J x

                That is a lot.  We originally quoted our guests $544 for a limited time if they reserved with $50.  It did go up but not more than $670 for 5 nights.  Granted, ours is in July.  Your are doing it in their high season.  Just remember that the people who really want to go, will go.  I suggest making a wedding website and putting the info on there.  Ours is in my signature.  Feel free to take a look.  :)

                      Did you do a tres leches cake? If so, how was it? thanks!

                      We got married a couple weeks ago on May 18th and we had an awesome experience.  We got there on a Wednesday and our wedding was that Friday.  We met with Yamina the day we got there to go through everything again.  We were emailing back and forth a lot a couple weeks before.  I brought my table runners and chair sashes but did everything else through the resort. 

                       

                      We went with DJ Mauricio Neri and he was awesome! He also did our music for the ceremony.  We met with him on Thursday afternoon and we gave him a list of songs for the ceremony and he also took good notes on his computer.  We also have him a list of songs we wanted to play at the reception and then just told him to play similar music when that list ran out. 

                       

                      The two nights before our wedding it rained so at 3 on our wedding day Yamina came in and asked if we wanted to move the reception to the ballroom.  I couldn’t decide because I didn’t want to move it inside but I also didn’t want it to rain.  I told her to go ask Luke (my husband) and that he could make the final decision.  He wanted it outside so we decided to keep it outside.  I am so happy that we did because the weather was perfect.  It was windy but it didn’t rain.  The following 3 nights the weather wasn’t good so we got really lucky!

                      The service at the resort was amazing and we originally booked the honeymoon suite and they upgraded us to the Master suite which was awesome.  Here is my slideshow.

                      Also, if anyone is interested, my husband condensed our wedding video so he could put it on facebook and show it to our friends and family so here is the link to that.

                       

                      The first part of the video is a little cheesy because it is a generic but the rest of it is great.  The first song that they are playing (when everyone is first getting there)we didn’t pick but the rest of the songs  are the songs that we picked during the times that they played them.  The video was just running a little slow on my computer but it might be my internet connection.  The actual video runs smooth.
