    @ Tiseege

    Regarding the DJ, is he only there to put the music on, or if he's also there to entertain the group and add some atmosphere ??  Does he do the launched of the bridal bouquet? I was wondering because we already have a large selection of music on an Ipod.. so knowing that, would it be worth it to have a DJ? If yes, is there one DJ better than the other?

    And talking about the Trash the dress, have u ever done that at the "Cenote"? If yes, is it far from the resort and do u need some special equipment?

    @BTOPPINGS As I understand it, the white fabric comes with the site, but if you want coloured fabric you bring your own.

    What fabric is included.  If you want colored anything it's extra or you bring your own.

     

    I highly recommend a DJ.  They keep the party going and will indeed do the bridal bouquet toss and garter toss.  

     

    I have not done a trash the dress at a cenote.  As a photographer, yes you should have special equipment.  You can get away without some stuff, but if you want to take full advantage of the cenote, you'll need some waterproof gear.

        @ Tiseege

         

        Have you ever seen guests of the wedding stand up during the ceremony (in my case, symbolic & under the tulum gazebo) to do a reading?

         

        I'm interested in any information about the ceremony, i think it is typically in spanish?, how long it takes and what is said/done.

         

        Any info would be helpful!

         

        thanks :)

        Yes.  I have witnessed guests stand up, walk under the gazebo and give a reading.  It's a lovely personal touch to the wedding.

         

        Symbolic ceremonies are NOT in Spanish... unless you want them to be.  It'll be in English.  It's about 15 minutes long.  You'll sign a fake certificate, do vows, and that's pretty much it.  

        You can add in a sand ceremony or a family member's readings if you choose.
