    I used DJ Mannia and he was really great. I'm not sure about fees since it really varies by resort, but it ended up being worth the extra money to have him there (in my opinion). Congrats on your wedding and a fabulous date!!!

        I am impatient as well. Not nervous, but very impatient. I have to remind myself, everything has it's time and now is not the time. I am very ready for the big day. It's not only a wedding, but a destination. What could be better?

        I am going to start traveling a decent amount for my job starting in August, so I have been trying to get some of the stuff done ahead of time.  Thus far I have not been successful in convincing my fiance that we need to work on the ceremony script 4 months in advance....  (and of course when I say "work on" I mean him just review and approve/edit the draft I have already written!)

              Planning is going great!  Destination weddings seem so much less stressful and more fun to plan.  We've finally booked rehearsal dinner (bonfire on the beach with Mexican theme and buffet), decided on all decor at the reception (turquoise satin linens, chocolate brown tiffany chairs with mango chair ties, turquoise and mango lanterns, and other mango/brown accents).  I've also tried on the dress and made alterations appt (FINALLY), booked dj, photographer and videographer, decided on contents for OOT bags (purchased some but waiting on final count for the rest), and pretty close to finalizing music.  Still need gifts for attendents and parents (only having 1 each though so that should be pretty easy) and a few other minor details.  We're finally seeing the home stretch and it feels amazing.  SO excited for the vacation and time away with our family and friends. 

               

              You're getting married at the Dreams Tulum?  That will be fabulous!  Such a beautiful area and I've only heard great things about Dreams.  How about you?  Almost done with planning?  Stressed or enjoying the experience?  I love getting ideas from you ladies and hearing about your big day.  :)

                No not stressed at all - yet lol, just really enjoying the experience. Ours is going great too - pretty much everything finalised. Chosen location for ceremony and reception, confirmed decorations, booked alterations appointment for my dress, bought bridesmaid dress, booked in for at home hair trial, finished welcome booklet, booked catamaran and airport transfers - just on countdown now :-)

                 

                Like you I am so looking forward to some time with our family and friends. Yes I am very excited about the Dreams resorts, I have heard such good things about them. You are at las cabos that is supposed to be lovely too. 

                 

                When do you fly?

                  We fly in on November 20th and out on November 27th so we'll only have 1 full day after the wedding.  We figured the week before would be our vacation time and have our honeymoon booked over Christmas break in the Caribbean.  That wasn't our original plan but it just seemed to work out better that way.  What about you?  When are you traveling?  Honeymooning there?

                    We fly on the 6th November, get married on the 10th and then on the 13th leave to go to Cancun for a week at Secrets Silversands for our honeymoon. We are planning on going away next year to the caribbean maybe around our first anniversary for a 'proper' honeymoon but thought we might as well have a mini moon and give us time to reflect on the wedding alone while we are out there. I am so excited... we fly 8 weeks today.
