@Jacquelyn05 thank you! We did the Mexican Family Style and it was insanely delicious. Highly recommend it.

We flew in a DJ from home (DJ Magnificent - based out of Cincinnati, OH). He was AWESOME.

@KimberlyD thank you!!! Don't stress! Just try to stay organized, have visuals to show the onsite team and ENJOY the whole process! It really wasn't until I met with the onsite team that I felt good about everything.

@jhercule Awesome! We're going with the BBQ Deluxe. And where did you get your bridesmaid dresses? Soooo cute.

@Jacquelyn05 The bridesmaid dresses are from Weddington Way, and are part of their exclusive dress collection (which have pockets!). I gave them the option of purchasing any short chiffon style in that navy blue color/collection or buying a long version and just having it tailored shorter (same price if it was going to be tailored anyway). A friend who recently got married recommended Weddington Way - especially when you have bridesmaids that live in various cities. It worked out really well for our group.

Their shoes are from ALDO and their earrings are from ForTheMaids on Etsy.

@KimberlyD We paid $500 total for the setup fee. Which by the time we were onsite, I was OK with because I just wanted to be done. I will note that we were told onsite that it had to be paid in cash - Ana (our offsite coordinator) never mentioned that, so I was ticked off about that.

Marvin's quotes sound very reasonable. My bouquet was in that range and I will tell you that it was HUGE (and heavy lol) and insanely beautiful. You could always ask him about suggestions for lower cost alternatives for some of the flowers - but he quoted me the same and I was very very happy. And everything was still way less than going through Lomas.

@jhercule You looked gorgeous! It's good to see real life shots of the a wedding there. Did your DJ bring their own equipment or did you rent it from EDR? I'm scared to go with an EDR DJ. I don't want my music to suck!

@MalaikaandMike awww thank you!! We rented the equipment through Lomas so that our DJ wouldn't have to worry about traveling with his and going through customs. He's a friend, so we also wanted him to enjoy his time vs. worrying about his stuff. He was able to test out the equipment a few hours before the reception, so he could become familiar with it.

@jhercule thanks for all of the tips and updates!! I stalked your wedding photos and they are beautiful!! 

 

My fiancé and I will be down there next Monday to do a site visit. I think I'll feel better about everything once I can see the resort in person. I'm excited about everything, except I'm worried about the decor for the reception area. I have this vision in my head of how I want it to look. I'm already planning on using Katy to rent from as well as bring down my own stuff. I told myself when I got engaged I wouldn't worry about the details and here I am stressing about the details :-)

 

Does anyone have any info on possibly renting tables/chairs from an outside vendor? I'd love to find some wood tables that don't require any table cloths. 

 

I will post any info I learn from our site visit next Monday! Also, we have been working with Paulina as our WC and she seems to be on top of things/responsive so far, just in case anyone wanted a recommendation.

 

Happy planning guys!

      Brides, I am hopeful you can help me. I am getting married in November, I am honestly starting to feel stressed! Our wedding will be held at Generations (will have children attending). I haven't decided if I was going to bring my own DJ from home (Virginia) or if I would be able to find a DJ in Mexico to use. I am looking for a DJ that plays more Hip - Hop/ R & B - any suggestions?
