We haven't set a certain Wedding Coordinator yet, we have just being emailing back and forth a couple times.
We are also having a 4 pm beach ceremony - have you figured out your d©cor for the beach yet?
For our music, we read a bunch of reviews and actually are probably going to use an ipod and just rent the equipment, and have our own MC.
We have also been looking into photography and debating bringing our own or using a Cabo vendor.
I am having my sisters/bridal party help with my hair and makeup.
We have not finalized the reception either - maybe gearing for the beach!
First of all congrats!!! I have decided not to do it at the RIU. My mom and I went down there a few months ago to go make sure it was what I wanted. Thankfully we did go and I decided not to do it there. I had a certain idea in my head about what I wanted and when I got there I was overwhelmed with everything, and the location, and amount of people, and rooms. So we decided to switch location to anything much much smaller hotel and location.
We are also doing a beach ceremony at 5pm, my decor for the beach is a large wooden piece I am drapping pink sheers over with a small amount of flowers. I will also be doing flower peatles down the isle. I am trying to keep it all very simple. During the ceremony I am having a harpist play then for the reception we got a DJ. I do not have a photographer yet I will take whatever one they got I am very laid back about that stuff. Also, hair and make up I may do my own or see what the hotel has to offer. Our reception is on the beach around a bon fire, we are doing a 5 course plated dinner, then cake and dj/dancing. All this was in our package they did not have any other choices but it worked out.
I wish you the best of luck and if you have any other questions feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
