@mexiwedding: 

You know I asked the wedding coordinator abt the sparklers, and they only referred me to Mannia.  If you find a vendor for the sparklers will please let me know?  Thanks

@@mexiwedding sorry for the late reply! Our schedule is as follows: 

 

3:30-4:00 Photos of Guys getting ready and then head to greet guests.
4:00-4:30 Photos of Girls getting ready and bridal portraits with fresh makeup
4:30-5:00 Ceremony
5:00-5:30 Champagne toast and group photo of everyone at the wedding 
5:15-5:30  Family and group photos
5:45-6:45 Cocktail hour

7:00-11:00 Reception

 

I'm curious about the decorations that you were told are included for the ceremony:  rose pedals, seashells/starfish OR candles - what package do you have? We have the Gold package, with the Dunas light up promo but Viviana never mentioned any of this... 

 

 

@@SusanMarie813 How did you get the photographer to swap out the photo package for Trash the Dress? I inquired with both Viviana and the resort's photographer directly and they were firm about not being able to swap it out for anything other than the included ceremony photography. 

 

Also, I noticed several questions about what everyone's doing for group travel arrangements and thought i'd share what we did: We are using a travel agent who has booked the entire group in with Transat Holidays. We got really good rates and Transat throws in a whole bunch of perks for group travel (such as 16th and 32nd rooms free) and priority boarding, dedicated in cabin storage compartment for the dress.. etc. Additionally, our group in flying in from two different destinations and Transat just made it all easy. The agent acts as a coordinator. She handles all the payments, communications, seat bookings, etc. It's a blessing not to have to coordinate 40 people's travel preferences! 

 

51 Days to go!

@@emmycita the package was for 24 photos. I told them I had a photographer already and wanted to use my photos for something else. I said a trash the dress shoot. They had no problem. I went directly to the photo studio not through the coordinator. If they didn't do it for me I would have fought them on it. No where when I was getting married did the package state it could not be adjusted.

@susanmarie813:  From the picture above the lighting for the Sky Bar looks like it has color illumination.  Is that correct?  This is part of the lighting package that comes with Mannia DJ?  I was going to put lighting , but if that's how the place looks, I don't think I will get extra lighting.  My concern was that when it gets dark, you couldn't see the nice view of the resort. 

 

What is your recommendation?

@@emmycita I love your schedule of a Champagne Toast and group photo. Did you have to pay extra for a champagne toast or is that included with our package? I really don't want to miss my cocktail hour so want to get pictures done beforehand as well. Where ais your ceremony being help? Are you just going to have the Officiant announce for everyone to stay at the venue for pictures or will you be meeting your guests somewhere else? (i.e. the beach)

 

We have the most expensive package (I think it is Gold??). We had asked them to sen us a picture of what was included with the Stone Gazebo decor and their photo included seashells so I followed up to ask what other options we had. Maybe you can try asking the same? Don't let them charge you extra for it!

 

 

I also agree with @@SusanMarie813 and plan to argue if they do not let us use our 24 photos for something other than the wedding day. We are hoping to use ours for our Welcome Fire Show the night before.

@susanmarie813:  Thank you so much for posting so much of your wedding details. It has been really helpful! 

 

I was reading through your cereomony scripts:  So they minister performing the cereomony signs ur marriage certificate?

 

I thought that since weddings in Mexico was not legal, that I would do a courthouse ceremony in the states, and that they are the ones who are signing the marriage certificate. 

 

Can you clarify this process?  And did you get married first before going to cancun?  Thanks.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
