Another newbie!

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

 

I actually joined back in October, but hadn't really started planning until a few days ago.  We are getting married in July 2013 in Cancun - Resort to be decided upon this week. 

 

I've found a ton of very useful information and ideas so far, and am looking forward to putting it all to use.

 

Thanks!

Thanks everyone!  We now have the date, hotel, and TA confirmed - now it's just a matter of planning the details.  I'm so surprised that I was only able to find one review for the FA Condessa - they have such amazing reviews for the property itself on many sites.  I'm dealing with Mariana as my WC, and she has been amazing so far, with great information.

Hi Carly,


We ended up deciding on the Fiesta Americana Condesa Cancun.  Date has been confirmed, and we are just waiting on the contract to come through so that we can put the deposit down.  Now the real fun begins jiggy.gif

Hola nimbleknits,
 
Congrats on your upcoming wedding!!!!
 
I would love to offer a few pointers and recommendations since you are just beginning to plan:
 
1. Your day will be spectacular simply because of the love you surround yourself with, regardless of the details!  Know that something in the plans may have a glitch - let's face it, what plans are ever flawless?  Just plan enough to allow yourself to be stress free for your special day, but be flexible enough to let whatever happens, happen. 
 
2.  Don't let anyone talk you out of having your ceremony start time be anything but 1.5 hours prior to sunset. This will give you great light for your ceremony, and even better sunset light for your beach portraits! Here's a schedule we'd recommend for a July Wedding:
 
5:00 PM - 6:00 PM | Getting Ready
6:00 PM - 6:30 PM | Ceremony
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM | Cocktails + Sunset Portraits
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM | Dinner + Toasts
9:00 PM - 10:00 PM | Dancing + Reception Fun
 
3. Remember that this day is about you!  Don't settle for things if you're not stoked on them!  Do something fun and special for your guests too though - Cancun has a plethora of awesome fire dancers that are a great piece of entertainment for the evening and provide for awesome pictures - if that's something you're interested in.  Otherwise, throw yourself a party you'd be stoked to attend, and likely your guests will enjoy it too!
