We're brining down a portable Bose system. It was $299 at Target but at least we get to keep it when we're back home and it's a fraction of the cost of renting their stupid sound system!!!

If your ceremony and everything else is on the beach terrace, your sound system just may work...But if you have anything on the beach you may want to ask the resort what they think only because the ocean can get pretty noisy.  Our ceremony was on the beach and all I know is that they set up speakers that faced out to the ocean and the music was def. loud enough over the ocean noise.  We also used a microphone for the vowels and the officiant, so you may want to ask the resort if you can still get the microphone even if you dont rent their sound system.  The sound system is $150/hr....I am not aware of it being $350/hr. 

 

Below is my reception table set up...you can see the votive/tea light holders.  That centerpiece came with the package.

 

 

I was mistaken when I said $350...I was looking at something else all together on the budget sheet. I have another bride in my area and we're both on the same train of thought in bringing down the Bose so she's going to let me know how her ceremony goes. Your reception was beautiful! I loooove the colors. Thanks for sharing.

Hello Everyone!

My fiance & I are booked for June 28, 2013!  We are excited but I am also getting very nervous as we are going into this sight unseen:-)  We were looking at the Divine package as it includes the most & we are trying to keep costs down.  However I am not 100% sure what type of ceremony, cocktail hour & reception setup is included.  I see many of you posting comments about bringing in centerpieces, renting linen, hiring photographers, florists & hair & makeup artisits.  We were under the impression that most if not all of this was included.  Can someone help ease some of my stress???

Hi all, I am new to this site. (Well, I have to admit that I have been a silent stalker for a while...) My daughter just got engaged and wants to get married at Now Sapphire. She and I visited the resort last summer and loved it!  I would like some opnions on an idea that we have been thinking about for a while. Please be honest with your opinions! Instead of doing OOT bags, we are thinking of making up bags or boxes to send to guests a couple of weeks before the wedding. We would include luggage tags, bug spray...all the normal stuff along with a couple of bottles of Corona or small bottles of tequila and a note telling them how excited we are that they are going to be there to share her big day. What do you think?

Hey ladies,

 

I just got married at the NOW on January 5! I wanted to give you all a review of what I thought since I hired all outside vendors. However, the site wouldn't let me post it on this thread - I had to post it under the reviews. So, here is the link to my review http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/products/now-sapphire-riviera-cancun. I hope this helps. I will periodically check this forum & the review for any of you that may have questions. Happy planning :)

I think that is such a cool idea!  I also want to do luggage tags.  I think that it would be such a nice surprise to receive that in the mail.  Hopefully it doesn't cost too much in postage!

I saw another bride suggest the idea of giving her guests their OOT bags at the airport before departure........guess everyone would need to be leaving together to do it that way, however - what a great idea....... now let's get This Party STARTed! hehe

Thank you so much for your review nels519. I was wondering if you minded sharing your florist contact info? I've been trying to contact a couple with no success. It's so exciting to hear that it went well. Under a month for me before we leave, woo hoo!!!

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
