Ok, I'm having the cake debate....to have or not to have. I've gone with a set menu and we are having the mango cheesecake for dessert. I think I read the cake was not good, true? I asked about red velvet and they said no problem, but is it worth $85 for a cake for 6 people?? I am sure that would feed more than 6, but I'm just not sure it's worth it......especially if it's not good thatswck.gif

Thoughts from those of you who have been there and done that??

Clearly I haven't been yet, but I vote no (as I did for myself). Based on other people's opinions about the sub-par quality, it wasn't worth it. I figured since each will be getting cheesecake for dessert, that would suffice. Maybe ask yourself if you'd rather spend $85 on a cake people may or may not want, or would you rather spend that on something else for the wedding....or a massage :)

I vaguely remember another EDR bride had the red velvet, and she said it was good.

 

That said, if cutting the cake together is important to you, do the small cutting cake - it was around $35 I think you guys said? Just do the vanilla, chocolate or strawberry. The dessert with the meal will be plenty for your guests (and taste better...). Or you guys could even "cut" your cheesecake and feed each other a bite of that - spend that $$ elsewhere! 

 

The sky massages are lovely. Something about being on the beach with the breeze blowing - it was dreamy!! Make sure you go 30 minutes early to do the water ritual too. I think you get a massage for 2 in the wedding/honeymoon package, right?

Yeah, the $5pp for decorations seems to be the going rate these days, at least quoted by the WC in Cancun. Look at it as another tip though - for those that do the set up work (they prefer this is paid in cash, FYI).

 

I wouldn't worry about it until you get down there and have your meeting with the onsite WC. they are the ones who will ultimately decide the amount for you.

Yeah, after we heard about the welcome bag fee we decided to just hand them out ourselves. When Allie got down there the setup was less than she was expecting, so I'm hoping the same happens for us. Unfortunately at this point I've just accepted it will cost what it costs, because we have to have decorations, so we're just going to hope for the best.

 Was this for the set up for the ceremony and the reception?  or was it $5 a person for each venue?

I was told total - for both ceremony and reception. So if I had 10 people, it would be $50 total for the day.

We did a small cake just for the purpose of photos! Ours was a vanilla cake. It was just okay....and the desserts that come with dinner are great! So personally if the cake is not important I would just pass.

Usually the fee would cover both. But again this is just a general quote....the price will be set once you are down in Mexico. And more than anything has to do with how much stuff they have to set up for you. If you are bringing a ton of decorations, or it's very difficult to set up, expect the fee to be on the higher side. If you have minimal stuff, expect it to be cheaper.
