I had the Divine package and used the DJ instead of the live muscian. The pink lights were set up in the Bamboo room and I did not pay anything extra for them.

That's awesome! I'm hoping to be able to use a DJ instead of the live muscian as well! Did u have to pay anything extra or was it an even swap?

62 guest booked, plus Bride and Groom!

    I booked in June of this year with Transat vacations. The price includes airfare from Winnipeg to Cancun and one week at a tropical view room. I noticed prices have gone up on various websites like 1travel2000..but I'm pretty sure you can get a lower price when booking a group rate.

      So, it would look something like this – again – these amounts are only an approximation as I will not receive confirmation from Air Canada until we are quite close to the final payment deadline:

       

      Per free room - $1625.62 - $313 (taxes – they are higher than Sunquest) = $1312.62 x 2 people = $2625.24 per room (maximum 3 free rooms).

      Thats a fantastic deal!

        Would you mind sending me this planning form as well:) It sounds like it is very helpful.

          Great! I'm hoping for the same! Thanks for letting me know! ;)

          Do you know how long you have it for? Is it for the whole reception?

            Does anyone know if they provide the vases and sand for the sand ceremony?

              Hello fellow brides!!! I am trying to decide on our centerpieces, and want to incorporate starfish, but have heard that they are not allowed through customs. Has anyone heard of this? Thanks for your help!!

                Usually the receptions are 3 hours in length unless you pay for additional time. If oy just trade your live music it is worth 2 hours DJ time. For us we have extended the reception so we will pay for a bit of time also. If you keep at 3 hours you could use ipod for dinner music and have the DJ do the remaining 2 hours?

                I heard somewhere (I can't remember where I read it, possibly on the 1st page of this thread..) but I read somewhere that they will provide it for $60 or so. I'm debating on whether to do a sand ceremony or not. I think it's a nice touch in place of the unity candle, but I don't wanna deal with dragging the vase there and back home with the sand in it.. Is everyone doing one? Anyone skipping it?
