    I highly recommend using an outside photographer! I used Gonzalo Nunez - he was fantastic and was very reasonably priced. I could not be happier with my decision!

      I do not have any pics of the orange lounge but basically what you see in their pictures is what you get. It is a very small area located right along the walk way to some of the restaurants and to the pergola. The decor is nice but again it is very small. How many people do you plan on having with you?

        Excited!

        Maritza actually sent me videos of the fireworks when I asked her. I haven't had my wedding yet so not too sure how they are in real life. I am just waiting to see how much we have left in the budget

          It looks like we will have 30-40 people, is the space big enough to accommodate a group that size?

            I would check with Pilar but I would think that you would be spilling out into the walkway. We had ours at the beach bar and it was spacious and they block it off so no one else can come down. I liked the look of the orange lounge but it was pretty small.

              Hello!!

               

              I am getting married November 28th at 3:30pm. I am just trying to figure out what time I should get my hair and make-up done. Any suggestions? Also, do you know how many people the salon will accommodate for hair? It will be myself, 4 bridesmaids, mother of the bride, mother of the groom and our MC all want to get their hair done (total of 8 people). Also, what is your experience with the salon? My cousin will be doing our makeup, so we can get that done while we are getting our hair done if they allow it.

               

              Thanks for your help!!

                Also, does anyone have an experience using Flores Riviera Mayan for their flowers? I got a quote and it's much cheaper than the resort, I just want to make sure they are reputable.

                 

                Thank again!

                  Hi Ladies! Hope everything is going smooth in your wedding planning. I am trying to bring as much decor as I can to save cost. From what the price list says it can get quite expensive for flowers and table centrepieces. Do any of you know if the resort provides minimal decor...like candles? Do they use linen napkins? And how much the laterns cost that hang from the ceiling? I'm so excited and nervous!! I want everything to look good! Thanks for your advice:)

                     Not sure on most items you mention but I do recall that lanterns were about $20 for 10...not sure on sizing or colours options but a former bride posted it on here this past summer.

                     

                    Hopefully someone else can help you out with the other questions, I'd be interested to know too!

                      I was wondering the same thing, I asked Pilar about the decor and the only thing she responded was that brides normally bring their own candles and favours.. so if someone has already had their wedding there, maybe they could be more helpful.
