@@TaraB thanks for the feedback on the lanterns. Are you getting married at beach terrace or tequila terrace? Let me know how it works out with the lanterns ( take a pic and post) and I"ll do the same thing  ( order the lanterns and bring them) Also we stayed at secrets silversands ( sister resort of NOW) and my fiance did not wear jeans to dinner. the dress code said no shorts but I think jeans are ok he just didn't wear bc it was so hot out so he stuck to linen pants most nights.

i am getting married on the beach terrace, and my cocktail hour is there as well.  but - our reception will be in a ballroom.  i have seen some pics of lanters hung inside ballrooms at different heights and it looks amazing.  hopefully i can get the same effect!

Hi there,

 

  Just have a couple of questions.

 

Are there microphones and speakers at the tequila terrace for speeches during the reception?

 

Has anyone found a good DJ at a reasonable price and what is the outside vendor fee?

 

Thanks!

Thanks!

The outside vendor fee is $350(if it hasn't increased for 2014). I'm going with the resort dj because I'm giving him the entire playlist and will pull him aside to let him know he follows it or he's not getting paid by me!!!! Also you can rent the sound system from the resort and I've seen it range from $150 to $400...

Does anyone have information on outside florist in the area?

Thanks for your help! Isn't the DJ $350 per hour though? I've found a DJ for a better price but with the outside vendor fee it's hard to know what to do! How many hours do you think you will use the DJ for?

Do they supply speakers to play music for the ceremony? I have the Divine package but thinking of using the guitarist or saxophonist for the cocktail hour. Did you just give them your ipod?

Speakers are included for the ceremony.  We gave them our phone and the music was played from there.  Ramon or Anel will go over which songs you want played during your planning meeting a day or two before the wedding.

 

We used the guitarist for the cocktail hour and it was a great decision!  He played a wide variety of songs and the guests loved it!

Perfect! That sounds great. Did you use a DJ for the reception? Or what did you do? 

 

Do Anel and Ramon arrange the meeting time before you arrive at the resort? Also did you pick flowers before you arrived or just when you were there? On the form it says to pick the flowers but I have also read from others that they just picked them at the meeting.

 

Thanks for your help!!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
