JENNIFER CANCUN WEDDING THREAD-MAY 31ST 2013

Recommended Posts

Hello Ladies! As my wedding day gets closer and closer (4 months away) I've decided to start writing my wedding thread to help all the other brides out there. This website has been such a valuable resource for me and I wanted to share all my wedding plans and details.

 

DREAMS CANCUN RESORT & SPA

 

After many weeks of research, I decided on the Dreams Cancun Resort for a few reasons.

 

1.) The resort allowed CHILDREN! I have a 4 year old daughter and it was very important to me that she attend my wedding. I was so surprised that many of the beautiful resorts in Cancun were ADULTS ONLY and had very many restrictions.

 

2.) VALUE - The Dreams Resort had far more value than any other resort. Their wedding packages were very reasonable in price which has allowed me to splurge on other parts of the wedding (OT bags, favors, decorations etc.)

 

3.) LOCATION - The resort is right in the heart of the hotel zone. It's near shopping on all of Cancun's night life.

 

4.) The wedding gazebo - honesty it's just very breath taking

 

 

***Only compliant about the resort so far is communication. I've been told by other brides that it's very common not to hear back from your wedding coordinator (Claudia) until a week before the wedding***

 

 

SAVE THE DATES

 

I sent my save the dates out about 11 months in advance. I wanted them to resemble a boarding pass.

Do you know the cost on linens? Chair sashes or table runners?

 

Chair Covers - $6

Colored Napkins - $3

Colored table cloth - $20

 

I suggest you buy them online and take them with you. You can even rent them at home and take them with you

    • Hey Ladies, I’m planning my wedding for October 2020 and we have narrowed it down to the Now Jade or Royalton Riviera Maya. We are expecting about 50-60 people and want a private reception. We are coming from BC, Canada.  Reading through the forums on here has been super helpful so far!  Something that’s been a bit hard in planning is figuring out all the hidden fees that add up on top of your basic wedding package.  Any tips or advice? Thanks!

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
