Thank you so much for sharing what you know so far! Your wedding is coming up so soon! Congrats! Lucky you! I am not getting married until February, but I'm sure it'll be here before I know it! I am also sure I will have lots of questions to ask you once you return.

Flowers: There werenâ€™t too many options to choose from for the flowers (Lilies and roses). So, I decided to go with white Lilies for the bride bouquet and bridesmaidâ€™s bouquet. I had originally sent Paola a picture of the flowers (type and color) I wanted but the upgrade was a little spending. I am also ordering 2 vases of flowers for the ceremony but no flowers for the tables. I am going to bring lots of candles and table decorations instead of flowers....I wasnâ€™t too impressed with the pictures she sent me of the flower centerpieces.
Music: I purchased a violinist to play at the ceremony and gave Paola my song requests for her to share with the violinist. I also purchased a Mexican Trio for the cocktail hour because, well, when in Rome (aka Mexico)! As for the reception, Paola sent me information for audio options (DJâ€™s, sound system, ect). I received quotes from 2 different companies and decided to go with JSAV out of Cancun Palace since Carlos was the quickest to respond and seemed very professional. We are only having 38 guests so I decided to purchase a sound system with microphones, speakers, and an iPod holder for music instead of a DJ. The DJâ€™s were kind of expensive, plus we have full control of the music we want to play. Iâ€™ll let you know how that goes:) I also added on lights for the dance floor to make it more fun.
Location: I choose the breeze terrace for the cocktail hour/reception. This was a difficult decision for me since Iâ€™ve never been to Cancun Palace and have no idea what the space looks like but after reading and chatting with a BDW bride who got married at Cancun Palace, she recommended this space. The only thing Iâ€™m a little hesitant about it how close it is to the rooms but she said it didnâ€™t seem to bother her or anyone else....I guess the guests will have to get used to the loud dancing music right next to their rooms I choose the infinity terrace for our rehearsal dinner, again because of her recommendation for this space.
Food: We are having the Italian buffet for the rehearsal dinner (my fianc©s parentâ€™s choice) and the BBQ buffet for the reception. I figured everyone will have lots of Mexican food while in Mexico and I love bbq so thatâ€™s why I choose the BBQ option.
Well, I bet I missed something but please let me know if you have any more questions!
