    Hi Ladies! I'm still at Excellence, nap time before dinner. My wedding was amazing! My guests have all love loved the resort! Food is yummy. You do have to stalk them about the cake. Our photogs did and it took multiple times asking. I'll do a more detailed review for you when I get back. But overall, seriously amazing. Makeup and hair were fantastic too.

          Hello ladies!!  I had my wedding at Excellence Riviera Cancun on July 6th!  It was AMAZING!  In regards to the post about Gloria, I can't imagine her being anything but incredibly sweet.  She literally did anything and everything I asked and everything was perfect!  We met with her the day we arrived and went over every detail.  She is wonderful. I will try to keep this post short and sweet!  The property is incredibly gorgeous!  I did not want to leave but we went to Belize for our honeymoon.  The staff as you've heard all are super nice and friendly.  We got upgraded to Excellence Club but did not really see too much of a difference as most of our guests weren't and we wanted to hang out where they could.  Excellence has it's own private pool and lounge.  I did use the lounge a couple of times in the morning for breakfast and coffee.  The rooms are gorgeous although the sheets always felt damp.  I guess that's what you get for having it right on the beach. It was no big deal.  The first night we were there we ate at Spice and it was pretty decent.  We ate a Lobster House the next night and it was tasty.  A lot of my guests really liked Basmati but I wasn't able to eat there.  Barcelona has a great buffet!  We went to the theater every night after dinner because they do a different show every night which were very entertaining.  It is WARM though and your hair will get frizzy!  Just a warning..ha!  

           

          The wedding was absolutely stunning.  I brought my own chair sashes and pinned little seashells to the back but they did it all for you!  I cannot say enough how wonderful Gloria was through the whole process. Our OOT bag stuff got held up at customs in Mexico City and she even called them to see if they would let it through!  (Which they didn't).  I would not ship the OOT stuff if I were you.  I spent so much money for nothing.  :(  About 3/4 of the way through our wedding, the sky started to get VERY dark and it got super windy so we kind of had to rush a bit through the end but we made it just before it started POURING!  We had to move our cocktail hour to the area where they do karaoke but it was totally fine.  We were taking pictures at this time.  We had our Meet and Greet at Las Olas right on the beach and it was perfect.  Everyone really loved the resort.  The spa was also amazing!  I would get Elias to do hair and makeup if you can!  He was unbelievable!  I will post pics!  Our reception was at Barcelona and while it was definitely cooler, it was still somewhat warm...but I think that's what you get with "Mexico air conditioning."  It turned out to be wonderful though.  Beautifully decorated and plenty of room to dance.  We used DJ Mannia as our Dj and he was really good but if I could go back I would probably just use my phone because there were a lot of songs I wanted played that he didn't play.  But he was very nice.  We all had a blast and even went to the Karaoke Club after the reception!  They brought us breakfast in bed the next morning and it was awesome.  We seriously did not want to leave.

           

          If anyone has any questions, I would be glad to answer them!  Do not worry!  You will LOVE every minute of it.  But don't blink because it flies by!

          Here are a few pics that people took with their I-phones:

          This is at Las Olas for the meet and greet with my bridesmaids. 

          My handsome hubby at Las Olas.

          I just love this one for some reason..

           

          Sorry for all the pics!  I could go on and on lol!  We also used Juan Navarro as our photographer and he was AMAZING!  The resort videographer also did a pretty decent job with the video!  Good luck to everyone and have a blast!! :)

              OMG!  I was wondering how everything went!!  So happy to hear that everything went so well!  You look stunning!  I'll have to request Elias next week!  I'm super excited.  You could have written more or included more pics...I would have kept reading!  :)

              P.S. Did you get upgraded from a standard junior suite to an excellence club room?  Congrats!!

                Wow, look at you. Love the dress, love the hair, love the makeup. You look amazing! I love the photo of you guys kissing at the end of the aisle with your guests in the background. We're also getting married at the beach gazebo and having our reception in the Foyer so it's so nice to see photos of it all. Your wedding looked beautiful.

                  KayLynn thanks for posting pictures! (and never apologize for too many pictures, are you kidding me? We love it!) You looked incredible! I can't wait to see your pro ones, Juan Navarro is such a great photographer. Sorry to hear your OOT bags never made it, what a bummer. But it looks like your wedding was amazing. I love the photo of your first kiss, you both look adorable and so happy. Beautiful hair and makeup as well, it's nice to see they do such a wonderful job.

                    Thank you Mandy!!  We did get upgraded from a standard junior suite!  Honestly, we were in a bunch of rooms that week and ours was no different.  The only difference was the private pool and private lounge area (neither of which I spent much time if any at because my guests weren't allowed).  But, if you get upgraded for free, why not!?  You are going to love it girl!  I will put up some professional pics when I get them back!  Good luck with everything!! :)
