@Sabes44 The ombré designs are from Evermine.com and the fiesta is from someone on Etsy. Evermine was great and super fast.

@sabes 44 i didn't know we had to pay for lights too...i feel like we have to pay for the air we breath... wow lol 

 

 

are any of you girls doing flowers for the gazebo on the beach? jessica sent me a list of all the prices and the flowers start at 400 dollars or so..thats crazy, plus flowers centerpieces are crazy expensive too, please tell me that at least open bar is included in the price package for the dinner  :o

 

@upstatekj, i have big bridal party, the guys are going to match the girls ...see attachment attachicon.gifc3107bb24e8f816c20e67e89411c3ce2.jpg

i would probably change the color of the tie to match the girls dresses 

@Giocivs88 love that look!! Where is the dress from? Are you concerned that the men will be hot ?? I'm getting married July 6 and I'd like the men to wear chinos and a long sleeve button down - but I don't want them to hate me :)


Can someone remind me how long the walk down the isle on the beach (to the gazebo) is? I believe brides have said a 1 minute walk? I'm trying to coordinate my ceremony music.

    Hello, Are any of the brides or guests booking swim out rooms? I actually prefer this room type to an ocean view at this resort! Nothing like being able to step right out into your own little personal finger of the pool!

      @TA Wendy - We did not book a swim-up room, but we are in the Excellence Club. We had a swim-up room on our recent trip to Cozumel and we literally only used it once the whole week. We tend to be beach bums on vacation, but I'm sure we'll inquire about room upgrade options when we arrive (as we usually do). :)

       

      @SusanMarie813 - We'll be using Juan Navarro. After reading through this thread, reading other reviews and looking at their work, we decided we did not want to use Beach Wedding Studio as our primary photographer. We will probably use that part of our package for our welcome party instead of the wedding.

      @TA Wendy- We booked the 2 story rooftop terrace room.  Originally we were going to go with the swim up room but I know we will get plenty of use out of that rooftop during after the wedding!

       

      @Susanmarie813-We are using Juan Navarro too.  I loved his pictures, pricing was extremely reasonable and very helpful  I read mixed reviews about Beach Studios and wasn't able to see enough of their work to feel confident enough to hire them.

        Yes, the rooftop terrace is pretty awesome too.. but for me just being able to step out of your room, have a little breakfast right there on your own little area and have a quick dip in the pool is just the best! Love those swim outs!!

         @TA Wendy - We chose the EC ocean view, although we may be upgraded when we check in. A few of our friends are doing the swim out and I'm sure they will love it!

         

        @SusanMarie813 - we are also using Juan Navarro. When are you getting married? @Sabes44 and @JenniferH114 - how much direction are you planning on giving Juan re photos? Are there certain pics or a style you want, or are you letting him do his thing? Is anyone doing a trash the dress session at cenote? I'm tempted - what a cool experience.

         

        Has anyone heard back from Jessica about dancing options late night? I know the dance club was replaced by the sports bar - just wondering if they have music there?

        @upstatekj-we are getting married on May 29th!  I have already given him some direction on what we like and want for pictures.  But I also want to trust him enough to do his thing, cause a good photographer can get amazing shots that way.

         

        We are doing the centote session!  At first I didn't want to do a trash the dress, but when we were looking at his pictures, my fiance just loved those pictures so we booked that too.  They are amazing pictures you can't get anywhere else.  So I figured why not, fingers crossed I don't freak out under water!

         

        Jessica just told me that the disco is now a sports bar but that and Kafe bar are open till 1am.  So I am not really sure about dancing, she didn't really say unfortunately.
