Congrats Jlo!

 

I'm getting married at BP on June 13th and I'm also using Cecilia Dumas photography. We're using one of her Associated Photographers (Freddy Wu). When we went down there for the site visit we met with her and she showed us different pics. Both my fiance and I really gravitated towards the ones that Freddy took although hers were beautiful too. Hers were a little more on the softer, romantic side whereas his were a little more dramatic. She's very personable and bubbly and I'm sure your pics will turn out great!

 

We have also qualified for the 2 free room nights however from the beginning we were told that they go for a future stay. we vacation a lot so that's no big deal. We were also thinking of staying two extra nights at Le Blanc on Isa Mujeres. We finally realized that we will have absolutely no 'alone' time the whole week we are down there so might just extend our stay.

 

I haven't heard anything about the other makeup/hair people that BP offers until just recently on here. Until I heard about them I was just planning to have it done at the spa, but now I'll check out my options.

 

When are you arriving down there? We're leaving on Monday the 16th.

    Thank you so much! Congrats to you as well! I was actually planning on using associate of Cecilia Dumas as well, bc of cost. Maybe I will request Freddy as well. I just talked to my TA and I guess the room nights are comped through them and not BP, so I am glad I got that squared away.

    I would love to get away as well but we have all three kids and I don't want to leave the baby yet especially :(

    Yeah, I was planning on the spa for hair/makeup until I saw the info about the new airbrush preferred vendor. How many guests are you having? We arrive on the 17th...Is your WC Daniela? Sorry for all the questions, but I am starting to worry about things I didn't want to worry about. Little things like flowers and centerpieces, the reason I planned a destination wedding was so I didn't have to think about things like that, you know?

    Anyways, thanks for your response!

    Do any of you have any specific BP info about menus, decor, etc. that you can send to me? I'm still locking in my wedding date (hope to have it this week), so haven't been in touch w/ a WC there yet. Thank you!

      Hi Tygrrlily,

      I have pdfs of the plated menus, buffet options and cocktail options. I can email them to you if you'd like to give me your email address.

        My offsite coordinator is Marisol and when we did our site visit we met with Rebecca, although they said we wouldn't get our 'official' coordinator until one month prior. Zuniga décor is doing the décor for the reception and I've tried contacting Marvin from Maya Flora (he's highly recommended on here) but I've never received a response.  the 'big' things I have to focus on now are centerpieces, Zuniga was way too expensive and I didn't like theirs, and my bridal bouquet. I know the ceremony comes with a complimentary one but I want something a little more colorful. Even those I'm not too concerned about and will probably just stop by Maya Flora when I'm down there and pick something out. I don't see the point in paying $100+ for a bouquet that I can't even bring back home with me!

         

        I did read about someone having sparklers at their wedding there, and they bought them while in Cancun. How much were they? Are we allowed to bring our own, didn't know if its a customs/flying issue.

         

        So my to do list looks like this:

        1. Get dress altered (they told me not to bring it in until 1 month prior)

        2. Veil (wasn't planning on one but that's the one thing my fiancé requested)

        3. Centerpieces

        4. Bouquet

        5. Shoes

         

        Not too much to do, but I'm sure a million more things will pop up

        How much did Zuniga quote you on florals? I think Maya Floral has a facebook page too - maybe you can try contacting him through them. I think I'm going to go with him too, once I figure out what I want. It looks like there was a bit debate over whether there was a vendor fee or not associated with him. Apparently if he drops off in the lobby, it's fine, but for some of the centrepieces he may need to set them up?

         

        I think for the complimentary rose bouquet, you can request multicolour roses. I don't like the plain white/cream ones either, so I was going to ask for shades of pink. Also another option is getting the real touch silk bouquets. I'm seriously considering this because the quoted price from BP is ridiculously expensive

         

        I'd prob just get the sparklers here and bring them in my suitcase. I don't think you can carry them on, but it should be fine in your suitcase.  Just remember to keep all of your receipts. I remember Lindsay had them a few pages back in her review

         

        Your date is coming up so soon ! Very exciting :)

        Zuniga quoted me $88 per centerpiece! I was kind of shocked, and I didn't even like them so no thank you. Granted we're only going to have 5 tables but we could almost get a Mariachi band for that

        I think that's why a lot of brides bring their own centrepieces and just supplement with smaller flower arrangements, esp. considering it's just for 1 night and guests can't even take them home at the end.

        How many room nights do you have booked? Are you getting the unlimited events?
