Veronica,

 

Oh how I feel your pain.I'm sorry to hear about your FI's job....it is so tough right now. My FI works in commercial real estate (he is a Construction Superintendent) and with the commercial industry basically crashed like everything else...there isn't much building going on. His job right now will be completed in May, so we went into this wedding planning task knowing we needed to be conservative to keep our emergency fund in place.

 

I'm sure you will figure out some creative ways to keep the important details...who knows...this may make your ceremony even more intimate and less stressful. Gotta look at the brighter side when it rains! :) Good luck.

Thanks Janelley :) That's so true. One of the main reasons we wanted a destination wedding was so that we could avoid all of the stress that comes along with planning a big wedding at home (I have a huge family), so I guess this will get me back to basics and force me to keep it simple!

Vgirl17- Instead of giving up your dinner, make brochures instructing everyone to meet at a certain restuarant for a welcome dinner at a certain time. Its what my friend Amber did and we all just "showed up" at the same time and they seated by moving tables around to be near each other. That way when everyone is dresses up and you don't have to stress out about your dinner. It also allows for any off resort guests to stay for longer because they have to leave after the last planned activity happens. Just something to think about. I will let you know how this goes because I am not suppose to be getting anything and i am crashing everything!!! lol Sorry to hear about your FI. If you need any help with anything let me know your ideas and I can maybe help you cut some costs and corners!

Great idea! We decided to do "Meet for Cocktails" on the rooftop terrace bar for our "welcome" event. Our party is fairly small so wedecided to use the free reservation for the reception dinner on the terrace of one of the restaurants instead. That way our welcome and reception are covered for free.

 

Hey FutureMsMoulton....crazy girl...can't sleep the last nights before you leave? I imagine I will be the same! :)

Speaking of "Rooftop Terrace Bar"....if either of you ladies happen to figure out where that bar is and take a peak....I would love to hear about it! I heard the views are great at sunset!

Hello, I was planning on having my welcome dinner at the Art Terrace. Not exactly sure where that is but does anyone know about the options for entertainment? I wanted to do something special for the guest like have fire dancers or something.... is it expensive?

ohhhhhhhhhh so you've been before? WAHOO! is it fabulous?!

We're getting married in a gazebo - i think i may have a choice? i'm not too sure! i think i've seen a review for one of the beach weddings, until that I didn't know that they did them! have you sorted all the colours and layout that you want? how did you know what restaurant to go with?
yeah you have a choice, have you been sent a list of the gazebo's and terraces? if you give me your email addy i can forward it if you want?

I'm far too laid back about this wedding! I have lots of ideas of what i want but not sure if i'll bother! haha! as long as H2B and I are there I don't care! Our theme is Lemon and Navy, but until we're 100% sure on what's happening (ie restaurant or private event) we're not thinking about it too much.

as for restaurants, i found that hard. in the end i went through all the mp review threads and tried to put something together. i made a thread on here called Moon Palace Restaurant Review thread. hopefully that will help you somewhat :) we chose ours on the reviews, and the fact they served ribeye steak! haha!

it does seem easy doing it that way, especially if it includes everything you want.

i've been really lucky with my WC, only because palace resorts made a bit of a mix up at the beginning so i think it was kind of compensation for them to give me a WC early. i think you've probably gathered from other girls here that they're not fast at replying to emails. What i found was easier was to put everything on a word document telling them what i wanted. about 2 months later i got a reply that everything was fine so that's good. but the way i figure, even if i don't get the location i want, nor the restaurant i want nor the decor, i don't overly care. i just want us to get married without a lot of hassle and stress!

what is your dress like? i found it REALLY hard because i didn't want a traditional english wedding dress you know? but i agree, once i got it i felt a lot better! My H2B and his boys are wearing Navy. yours? what about your BM's? my MOH is in Navy like the boys, and my two flower girls are in Ivory.

I just wrote a much more detailed reply however I lost it!! very frustrating!!x
yeah i totally agree! you have to have an opportunity to wear your dress again! and to party with everyone who couldn't come!!! i've booked mine, all pretty much sorted! im more organised with that than i am with mexico! haha!

Hey, i'm so sorry to hear about your H2B. I had a similar budget issue and i was upset, but you know what, it actually felt better once i didn't have so many options and i was choosing JUST the things that really mattered. I bet it will still be amazing :) good luck!

hi! I found google my best friend, and wedding magazines. How about green chiffon table runners with shells and starfish scattered around? and maybe green napkins tied with coral coloured ribbon?


GOOD LUCK ALL YOU BRIDES OUT IN CANCUN NOW! can't wait to hear all about it! xx

I want to know about the rooftop bar too! I want to have my welcome happy hour there, it sounds really nice! I am debating about the lanterns that futuremrseddy had... is the Tucan Terrace okay without them? They look nice but if the lighting is okay then I will skip them.

 

I am talking to Lily at Zuniga/decocancun and trying to negotiate prices but it is hard because I really don't know what I want! Idk about lounge furniture, lanterns....She suggested this candle entrance station and tiki torches... this is so hard! Here are the pics she sent.

    • It's so sweet, Nice idea. Perfect for a cute wedding.😍
    • Hello Kim;) Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!!!! My name is Marisol Vera and I am wedding planner; if you are looking for a destination wedding Cancun and Riviera Maya are great options and pretty safe since all the hotels and resorts are taking great care of their guests and visitors. Please advise which is the destination wedding you are interested in as well as if you have contacted any hotels yet; I will be more than happy to assist you with your big day planning!!! Looking forward to hearing from you very soon;) Have a great day!
    • It depends on how far you can go, Can you go out of US for destination wedding, If yes then their are tons of options Ex. Bali,Thailand is becoming the new hot spot for destination weddings, Other one I would recommend is Rajasthan,India It might be expensive wedding but totally worth it the wedding takes place in palaces. If you don't have that much of budget still their are many options available such as Sicily,Italy - get the authentic wedding ceremony in Italy other one i would recommend is going to Spain their iconic scenery are perfect for a wedding. Thanks🙂
