My WC was Jared. He was great, but don't worry yourself with wedding details prior to your arrival. It's a waste of time. They seriously have and do it all. I took a rolled up hand painted print from a previous cancun trip and a sharpie and used it as my guest book. I took a cd for the ceremony in the order I wanted everything played so they never had to worry with starting or stopping it. I did the same with our reception first dance, father daughter, groom mother music as well. Something that helped me more than anything is that I had my best friend and my husband's best friend ordained and they performed the ceremony. Also my brother in law lead everyone in prayer and that combo really made things so personal and special. I have no problem with getting a local minister but when they perform the entire ceremony I fell like you lose the romantic magical moments that you expect when you're replaying your wedding over and over in your head in the months leading up to your wedding. Also i would suggest you have someone from home that you trust to be your WC as well. I had my husband's best friends mother there. She has coordinated a lot of ceremonies and she was there to tell each person when to walk out, where to go, how to stand. She also worked hand in hand with the DJ, the hotel staff, and Jared loved her. He just stepped out of the way and let her run with it. He also offered her a job after the wedding was over. I watched a wedding two days before mine and although it was pretty, it was all over the place. Each bridesmaid took different routes on their way to start down the aisle. Some took the sidewalk, some walked in the grass and even something little like that could make all the difference in the world. You have to get the illuminated dance floor!!!! It's a must. It was a show stopper and people will be talking about it long after the trip. The photographers t the hotel are great. The bartenders were perfect and the DJ let my husband and his friends scratch different songs and mix things up. They were awesome. I also had my hair done in the hotel spa. Roxy did my hair. She was great. I was prepared for a plan B but didn't need it. Hair turned out great. I suggest no veil and hair up. When I was watching videos on the web prior to my arrival I always noticed veils flying around but I just brushed it off and figured it was due to location and certain times of the year but when I got there and watched the wedding they had 2 days before my it was the same situation. The maid of honor had to hold the end of the veil through the entire wedding. It was all over the place.
