Marinah84's Planning Thread - 3/14/15 - Crown Paradise Club Cancun

My biggest issue was the fact we had small kids there - and they were OUR kids, lol, so it's not like I could blame others!  My sister and brother in law graciously took them back to the states with them, so we could have a short "honeymoon", but a lot of the guests left that day as well.  If they had been older and we could have put them into the kids area for a couple of hours a day, that would have helped a lot!

 

 

One big tip - BRING WALKIE TALKIES!!  They were a LIFESAVER when we were running around getting ready for the wedding, and when people were with our kids (since they still nap).  We brought 4, and honestly I wish we had 2x that amount (we had 32 adults) at least.  We just put them on the same channel and would ping each other when needed.  Very helpful when we weren't in our rooms!

that's what we do too, we have two walkie talkies and they worked great last time when we traveled with my family. We should probably get a few more :)

@@marinah84 your pics are beautiful! Kudos to your brother :)

 

Your little girl's dress came out beautifully, love the colorful tulle. She looks like a fairy!

 

I hope you two had a great time on your mini honeymoon. At least you guys were alone for that ;)

Trash The Dress Photos!

 

I've been CRAZY busy lately, but wanted to stop by and say I got my photos from Sam Luna the photographer over the weekend!

 

I've made a public FB album of our cenote Trash The Dress session - it was AMAZING!  The shots he got were gorgeous - I would highly recommend him/the ttd session to anyone on the fence!  Review eventually, as I catch up.  Also have some items to post on the b/s/t board - I need my house back! 

 

Here's my album (hopefully the link works!):  https://www.facebook.com/marinahartung/media_set?set=a.784031153664.1073741863.54300091

Hmmm - here's a different link, does it work?  I got it straight from the album under "Get Link" for this one!

It was a BLAST!  So much fun!  We both swam in college, so I think it was a little easier.  Towards the end, though, I was definitely getting tired.  I fell asleep in the car on the way back to the resort, haha.  I loved that I didn't have to worry about mascara with the eyelash extensions, too!

    • Hello!! My fiancé and I are planning on a destination wedding and we are wondering if there are any recommendations for a travel agency to use. I’ve emailed some I found online, but find it tough just communicating through email before we decide where to book. After we book, obviously email is convenient! We are in the Niagara Falls On area and would love to sit and meet with someone but don’t know where to start. Any help is greatly appreciated!! Thank you  
    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
