I agree! I think I just made my decision. When I first started thinking about it I though for sure I needed cocktail music, but now I def don't think it's needed. I'd rather spend them money towards something else! :) I doubt anyone will miss it! 

Thanks Girls!

    Is it necessary to rent the sound system for your iPod for the cocktail hour? Our cocktail hour is at the Mix Bar and I'm just wondering if I should even bother preparing the music on my iPod and renting the sound system? Will it be weird without music? I was at a wedding last week and there was no music for the cocktail hour and I didn't even think twice about it. Then I thought more about it and I don't recall ever hearing music at anybody's cocktail hour. What's everyone's thoughts?

    I did not pay for music during the cocktail hour but the bartender did have some music playing for us. The package includes the setup for the music during the ceremony. I made a cd prior to going down with the music I wanted just incase they didn't have it. I told them what songs at what time and they took care of everything.

        THANKS!

        I HIGHLY recommend Gonzalo Nunez. He was very reasonable and his work is amazing. He was the best decision I made regarding our wedding!

            Another Question, Sorry I am full of them today!

             

            Regarding the flowers. I have the Divine package. Are the premium centerpieces included in that package? If so, How many centerpieces are included?

              I don't think any centrepieces are included in the Divine package... except one arrangement at the reception for the head table. I'm going to be bringing as much as I can for decorations. I have a vase, tealights and tealight hoders, some seashells, silk flower petals that I'm bringing with me and then I was thinking of using my bridesmaids bouquets as my flowers in the vase. The bridesmaids can then take the vase with their flowers back to their rooms to enjoy after the wedding:) What do you ladies think of that idea? The bridesmaid bouquets are $65 a piece so I was hoping to use them for the whole night!

              I agree. I don't think the package includes any centerpieces beside the one for the head table. That stinks! That's a good idea to use your bridesmaids bouquets. You might as well get some more use out of them! I'm only having one MOH so that option won't work for me. I want simple centerpieces. Like a vase with acrylic ice, a submersible pink candle and maybe some floating flowers. I'm just dreading bringing the vases down. Pilar quoted me $60 to rent vases! No thank you! I can get them from the dollar store and figure out how to transport them. I have no clue how many guest we'll have so I don't know how many centerpieces I'll need!

                I am leaning toward renting them just for the convenience.  I know it's a lot of money to rent, but it saves me the hassle of dragging them down there and, more importantly, getting them there in one piece.  I really wanted to bring my own (I'm doing three per table and having 4-5 tables) but I worry that they won't make it intact.  I know there is a Walmart in Cancun, but there's no guarantee they will have what I want.  If they did, I would just buy them while I was down there.  I am still looking into that as a possibility, but I'm guessing I'll end up renting them. :)
