Just another way for them to get more money- make everyone go with the more expensive DJ..so annoying.

        Im going to be doing a blue hawaiian, since blue is our main colour. It's a pi±a colada with blue cura§ao. I think the only restriction the resort might have against it is if you use liquor they dont carry. So Im going to keep it simple and ask the on-site coordinator to do it. If not, then ill tip the bartender to do it hahaha

            If I were to re-book I would have booked our whole group in the Nizuc section! The pools are much nicer, and it is not so crowded. It is also newer and in the center of the resort! Most of our group was on the sunrise side and 4 other rooms were on the nizuc side so we were spread out and it was nice to travel and have some things close to peoples rooms. All of the wedding stuff is in the Nizuc section. The grand is the newest, but most quiet. We loved this after everyone left (it was the lobby/pools  closest to our room also!) No matter what if you have a group you will take over any section! Your better off with a less crowded spot to begin with!

            I am bringing my photographer from the states with me and she is staying 3 nights so I don't have to pay the fee.  I would just book them a night at the hotel and then they will be a guest of your wedding!

             

            Your wedding locations should be confirmed once you get your purchase order from your WC, but they say the cannot completely guarentee it until you arrive in Mexico.  But if you've paid, you should be fine !

             

            I think we are requested to stay in the Sunrise section or the Nizuc.  Not sure one is better than the other.  I think the Nizuc side is quieter than the Sunrise from what I've been told. 

             It poured our first two full days there and I cried my eyes out...then it was perfect...up until 1 hour before our scheduled outdoor wedding and reception when tropical storm Debbie touched down over MP! .....

            Rain on vacation in Mexico is still better than rain at home!!! None of my guests cared because it was their vacation!! (not their wedding ;) They felt bad for me!

             

            If you are having a reception just have your coordinator have your ceremony and reception in the same room- I wish they did that for me! It will be best for pictures! We still had a blast! If your not doing a trash the dress, reconsider - I wish I did, because I would have at least had the "beach pictures" I went there for! Also, if you qualify for unlimited functions- do one every night on a terrace! Then it will be like a reception every night! I didnt want to "take up peoles time" but everyone wanted to be together anyway and you annot get tables for groups at all.

             

            My dad had a travel Bose speaker and we danced everywhere! It was worth ever penny!!!!

             

            Don't (try not to) let the weather consume you!! There is NOTHING you can do to stop whatever happens happens and it just cannot be raining all week!!! Its the Caribbean!!

             

            We changed our wedding son for our at home reception to "theres something sexy about the rain" by Kenny Chesney!

              I'm also a November bride - 11/9/12.   Has anyone had any luck negotiating with the in-house vendors?   More specifically Zuniga and JSAV? 

              I am using zuniga and PSAV

              Zuniga- i worked with Katie who was very helpful with naything i needed to know. She even offered me ways to spend less by suggesting different flowers to substitute the expenisive ones for my canopy.

              I went with PSAV because they were more responsive to my emails and more affordable.

              Right now im waiting on my coordinator Maria Fernanda to send me the final bill so i know the damages... less then a month to go and i still dont have that. and i still need to plan my events around the wedding.

                Aww thanks for the positive words.. that means a lot to me!  I know that's what I need to do- I have been driving my poor fiance absolutely INSANE looking at weather sites.  He's been telling me over & over exactly what you said.. maybe I should start listening.  Honestly I would be perfectly ok with it raining while we are there- I just feel bad for my guests that have spent thousands & thousands of dollars to come there, you know?  Thanks again Smoylan :)

                  It is very interesting to go to some new places while a honeymoon vacation. Very romantic an exciting. Moreover, lots of exotic countries provide very cheap prices for visas, hotels, entertainments etc. Ukraine is one of such countries, very cheap and romantic to be a good honeymoon travel destination.  This is a piece of info on Ukrainian honeymoons http://ukraine-vacation-guide.com/publ/affordable_honeymoon_destinations/8 moreover, citizens of EU, USA and other states do not need visas to go to Ukraine. Think about this affordable travel destination.

                    Hi chicksmommy,

                     

                    Smoylan is totally right!!! Just enjoy your love, your moment and let whatever happens happen :)

                     

                    Remember that the rain can also be fun!!! If you embrace it, it may just give your day a very romantic twist:

                     

                     

                     

                     

                    When Holly initially contacted us, she was actually hoping for rain on her day to get some cool images. Wish granted:

                     

                     

                     

                    Check out her super romantic love story here: http://delsolphotogr...leries/?gal=794

                     

                    Best wishes!!!!!!!
