HI everyone! Just joined as was searching for answers to a million queries i have about planning our wedding at NS!  

Does anyone have a copy of the Budget spreadsheet they could email at all? Keep finding out about more and more charges for various things and wanted an up to date cost of everything so i can work out the best way to do things (set up costs/outside vendors/reception extension etc!)

Was so excited when we booked now starting to panic about all the hidden extra costs!!!

sorry me again!! Does anyone also have pics of the lights they paid for on Tequila terrace? Seeing so much about the fees for putting them up, but also $850 + tax for the chinese lanterns i had my heart set on is crazy. What do the Italian lights look like? Also what are the Luminara referred to in the wedding guide at $5 each?  AGGHHH brain meltdown at moment over this organising!!!

Sorry for the delay! I just got back from my wedding and decided to bring our own lights after much debate because it was still spendy but my husband and i were glad we did! It added a nice romantic touch. It isn't necessary but it's really nice! I haven't received photos from photographers yet with night shots but this is before the reception started.

Thanks for the reply!! I got some pics off my WC and still am debating. They look beautiful can't make my mind up weather to save the hassle and book them or bring our own....depends on budget in the end! Your reception looks beautiful!

hi, has anyone used dj mannia or deorromix recently? mannia is double the price that deorromixx is and just wondering if he is worth the money or why he is so much ? im getting married at the now sapphire on may 4,2019. Mannia is 900 for dj and 650 for dance floor and then tax so 1798 total and then the resort fee and deorromixx is 900 total he doesnt charge tax and that includes dj and dance floor, im a little skeptical since half the price but i also dont want to over pay for same services, and then im also curious about outside vendors for flowers and photos that anyone has used recently thanks :)

Hi!! I live in the area and I'm very involved in weddings, I haven't heard about neither DJ's, but there are A LOT of options in Riviera Maya... what I can recommend is that you check that their facebook page, instagram are up to date as well as their reviews in weddingwire, bodas.com.mx, (mexican wedding webpage similar than weddingwire). If deorromixx is an external vendor from the hotel, then is normal that their prices are half than the hotel in house DJ but it doesn't mean is a low quality, just do a little research on social media :) 
For floral design vendor I can recommend Cherry Blossom and photo/ video Roc'n'love photography, they are both local with good prices and great quality but before hiring them check the external vendor fee with your wedding planner, hotels charge a from $300 to $1,000 usd just for letting them into the property
If you need any other tip feel free to ask me ;) 
Good luck !!

    • I know this is an older post, but maybe my message will help someone else.
    • While most readers have (hopefully) heard of Geoffrey Chaucer, they are probably not familiar with his exquisite rondels. And I would rank Charles d’Orleans with Chaucer as a master of the medieval form …
    • Had anyone traveled with their wedding dress on JetBlue? If so can you tell me how you did it? I leave 9/23 and I’m still lost on what I’m doing. I bought a vacuum seal bag but I’m iffy about using that. TIA
    • Hello, has anyone recently gotten married at Le kliff? so far our planning experience hasn’t been the best, does anyone have any recent experience with getting married there? 
    • Hi I’m about to book my wedding and wonder if anyone has recently got married at RUI Ocho Rios? Would anyone has the prices for extras please? We are going to book the top package but we need to add extra people as we have 50 guests. we also want to have an after party after the reception - any ideas on the timings for it or prices please? We have emailed the hotel but can’t seem to get any answers until we pay deposit. Which we have just done at Bahia Principe to find out after they won’t allow us to have a reception past 9:30pm even though they said we could at a cost of $300 usd per half hour prior to booking and paying our deposit. We where prepared to pay this even thought it is very expensive plus DJ and bar costs.    we are nervous to book and pay another deposit now incase we are in the situation. We are already paying hundreds of pounds to amend our guests bookings too.    any advice is greatly appreciated please.   thanks  Sam sjpulfer18@hotmail.co.uk
