        The sun glasses were ordered through rushimprint.com The koozies were ordered from discountmugs.com The picture frame is a wood frame that I painted, added some netting and a starfish and then printed out the saying on cardstock paper. The maracas were purchased in Punta Cana on vacation and I just brought them back and reprinted them all. I couldn't find any online for a reasonable price.

I can't imagine the date being taken at this point, but you never know! Oh well, I guess I need to learn to be patient, but I'm excited to get started and I feel like we really can't until we know we have the date! My daughter is hoping for a wedding on the beach and cocktail hour and reception on the tequilla terrace. Cross your fingers for us!


          It did take awhile for me to hear back from them, but I CCed the info or service email address from the website under contact info (I don't remember what it was) and I heard back quickly - probably bc they don't want those people knowing it takes forever!  Keep in mind though, they are REALLY busy, doing 3 weddings a day.  Don't worry, they will get back to you at some point but go ahead and get a list of questions and requests ready so you don't have to keep emailing and waiting on responses.  Make sure to ask for a budget list - I told him I would not book until I got that!  It helped a lot.  I am bringing all my decor, my fiance said I wouldn't remember that I didn't have paper lanterns and the works so we are doing basic stuff.  Instead of chair sashes, I am bringing wide ribbon; ordered table runners from Amazon, a few bucks cheaper; glass lanterns from bargainbunch.com; making paper garland for the arch...There's a lot you can save on if you can do things yourself and keep in mind you have to pack these things so small & light!!  Good luck

            Did you do the complimentary package and then are adding on by buying the private reception,bringing your own ribbon, table sashes, etc? I am not sure which package to do because it seems like the complimentary is so basic that either way it's expensive. What is the budget list you asked for? Can you PM me it or e-mail it to me? Thank you so much!

THE TA told me it was in the middle of cancun and playa del carmen so a short bus ride in to town if guests want to venture out. Do you know if thats correct? Can you tell me anything about your experience the time you were there and how the wedding went? It looks picture perfect and everything and more I have wanted my wedding to be! congratulations!!!!!

              Hi Brittany,

              yes it's right in the middle between Cancun and Playa. About 45$ by cab. Just far enough so you don't loose guests out in town, but still close enough to have a visit for a day trip. My bachelorette was in Playa at Coco Bongo, and the Bachelor party was in Cancun.

              In my profile I have albums with links to my FB pictures...

I was hoping to clarify this because 15 per person times 40 ppl for a couple hours is more than the whole original package practically which seems extreme at an all inclusive. Hopefully someone has wondered this too and found an answer

                Hi tschooley

                This is my bill, let me know if you can't read something.

                http://www.bestdesti.../display_order/

                It comes to 105$ per additional person above 25, including additional hors d'oeuvres in cocktail hour, signature drinks, drinks, dinner meal, cake http://www.amresorts...dding-guide.pdf

                As per page 10 in their booklet: 53$ for divine dinner + champagne toast 4$ + cake 7$ + cocktail hour 15$ + hors doeuvre 15$ =94$ + tax + service= 104$ per additional person.

                I hope that helps.

                  I finally heard back from Anel. She requested that I re-send my credit card info because there was a problem reading it. I guess that means my daughter's date is open! Excited to get the confirmation! Do they send you packet of info or do you just use the one she sent when I requested information? Thanks for all the help. You all have been so helpful! Thank you!
