Lol I don't think so @@hapykat

From what I have heard the runner is still very soft. Maybe flats would work. I got a pair of pumps that I plan to wear during cocktail and reception. I'm just going barefoot down the beach!

I agree, I used to be a wedding planner for a venue on the beach and trust me its extremely difficult and uncomfortable to try to walk in sand in anything but sandals or barefoot, flats can work, they just get filled with sand easily.  I plan to walk down the isle barefoot and have a fun pair of heels to change into after.

We are using mood event services for our DJ.  I read wonderful things about DJ Julian Molina and his site has his playlist so you can make sure he has music/songs you like.  He was I beleive $900 for 4 hours but we got the light up dance floor and some extras.  I've been in contact with him and he replies quick and I'll meet him at the resort a couple days before my wedding to go over everything in person.

@@Crystal17 - Don't you still have to pay the $500 fee for an outside vendor for that DJ? We'll be doing that for our outside photog.

@hapycat - yes DJ Mannia is $1,300. Yes expensive but so worth it! Also, I wouldn't recommend shoes if you get married at beach gazebo. On the pier you would be fine wearing wedges/heels. I was barefoot the entire night, I loved it!

@@Sabes44 - the weather was perfect when we were there! The week before Tropical Depression Boris made an appearance so I was freaking out about rain and clouds the entire time. It all cleared up for us! We got married at 5:00 and the beach gazebo is mostly shaded and the breeze is wonderful! I wasn't hot at all during the ceremony. We chose this location because we had been to Excellence Playa Mujeres and loved it so we wanted to try ERC. I read a ton of reviews and the place looked gorgeous and once I saw the beach gazebo I said "This is it!!" Food was fantastic (ate way too much :) You can't go wrong!

 

and to Jennifer's question about the DJ vendor fee, yes you would have to pay the outside vendor fee. We did for our photographer.

@karijean-Glad to hear the weather was perfect for you! 

 

Question regarding sound during the ceremony-Is is extra for the microphone and system to play music?

Thanks ladies, all your input and reviews have been super helpful and help make my decision to go to Excellence! :)

Nope the microphone and sound system are included.

 

My husband said that at first they gave our friend who married us this big huge blue microphone to hold that looked like a toy. They were all like "ughh...that's not going to work" because he had to hold a book and obviously it looked a little ridiculous. So they then hooked him up to a wireless one which was wayyy better.

That's great, one less thing to budget for!  I like your idea of just having a playlist ready to go, think that is perfect.  Good to know, no blue microphone!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
