thank you!! Agreed, I saw some of the options and I just felt they were a little "tropical tacky". They had a lot of bright colour options and I'm more of a soft colour palette kinda girl. I spoke with our wedding coordinator and ask about outside vendors and I did mention in our back and forth emails that I would be putting together the bm bouquets. I don't know if they didn't consider me going to a shop a "vendor" since I was putting them together. Either way, I didn't have any issues bringing them into the resort. I came prepared with all my tools and burlap. I put them together the night before. I had the time to do it, and they turned out nice. I made 8 bouquets and 7 centerpieces. I didn't bother to make the boutonnieres, and my bouquet and gazebo flowers were included in our package.
You booked the same gazebo that we did. I really think it is a stunning gazebo and the chillout is so pretty. We didn't order the light up dancefloor. It was wayyy to expensive. They have the dancefloor on the beach and it is sooooooo nice. They have tiki torches all around and chairs for those who want to sit down. The staff comes around with drinks for everyone. We did hire a dj and that worked out nice. We did have the option of having the dance floor in the wooden part of the chill out but it was so epic on the beach. Everyone had their shoes off and was just dancing away.
We flew in our own photographer and he stayed at the princess so we didn't have to pay an outside vendor fee. His name is Willy Sanjuan http://www.willysanj...0000oUB_qBW563E
I had my hair done at the salon at the Platinum Yucatan Hotel and make up was done by one of our weddings guests who is also a makeup artist. I asked for a very natural look and I loved it! This site was very helpful even though there weren't many Grand Sunset brides online when I was planning. It did help to read previous reviews.
I will have my pictures in a few weeks so you'll be able to see it all !
