@MissAmber26 Just realized your wedding date is coming up!! How exciting and nerve wrecking at the same time. How's the planning going?

It looks like my fiance are going to be getting married at the Hyatt Ziva thanksgiving week.

For those of you who have been to the resort or seen photos of the sky gazebo, is there a lot of light there?

I ask because the photo I've seen is sort of dark and I can't tell if it's because it was taken late in the day.

    Hi all! Im getting married at the Hyatt Ziva Cancun June 4th and visited in February for the Big Day Preview. I'll upload some photos of the Gazebo and Sky Terrace (the one that is NOT adults only). We're having our ceremony in the Gazebo and cocktail hour/reception at the Sky Terrace. Now that I'm finally getting somewhere with planning, I'll try to keep everyone updated. So far, I've only received things that have already been uploaded. Hoping to get a quote for decorations soon šŸ˜•.

    As far as lighting on the Terrace it does get some but is still shaded (it's semi-covered with wooden beams that you can kind of see in one of the photos). Our cocktail hour/reception will both be there and will begin at 530 so we'll probably incorporate some lighting.

    Let me know if I can help with anything else!

    Thanks for the great photos! 

     

    For those of you who are planning on doing the ceremony at the cliffside gazebo: What are you doing in terms of decorations? 

     

    I asked Margarita for some photos, but I haven't seen anything in terms of actually ceremony set-up. Thinking some flowers and/or white curtains.

      Hi there! Congrats on your upcoming wedding! I just got back from the Hyatt Ziva last week and it is STUNNING!! We took the wedding tour and our thinking we may book it for our wedding next year. I was wondering, you mentioned that Gama Grupo is doing your decor, idk if this is a silly question but do the tables and chairs and settings come along with the wedding package or are they also additional? I've been in contact with Jessica asking questions but I also wanted a bride's perspective on the process! Good luck!!




      I posted a lot more stuff on this topic: http://www.bestdesti...ribe/?p=1911815

        Hi everyone,

        Congratulations on your wedding! I am looking to book for September 2017. From Scotland so unfortunately probably wont get out until the actual Wedding.

         

        Can I ask how everyone is finding the planning? Did you book with a tour operator or directly with the hotel? Also does the wedding package cover most things or are there a lot of additional costs?

         

        Any help is much appreciated! Have cancelled my current wedding in Scotland as I changed my mind and want to go abroad so want to make sure I am 100% certain this time!

         

        :)

        It depends which package you choose. The upper end ones include quite a bit. My fiance and I are doing the Lavish and Opulent package, but there are others. Link to them below.

         

        I think things start to add up if when you want to customize the look of your wedding or add additional decor or entertainment.

        Brides: I got the following list of cake flavors from our wedding coordinator, but was a little confused as to whether these are all actually wedding cake flavors.

         

        Some of these (ie cupcake, brownie, macarons) don't seem like it. Is the biscuit a cake flavor, for example?

         

        Rose roses and champagne cream cupcake tower

        Red velvet biscuit, strawberry with coconut cream covered

        Hazelnut and almond cake with strawberry and hazelnut chocolate cream

        Vanilla and caramelized pecan nuts with green apple cream

        Blue Berry biscuit with lemon and mascarpone cheese cream

        Raspberry, lemon, almond, Irish cream and champagne macarons tower

        Mocha and White chocolate brownie with bourbon whiskey cream

        Naked red mix berries and roses with vanilla cream

        Chocolate/strawberry biscuit with Frangelico liquor and hazelnut cream

        Vanilla and orange biscuit with Oreo cookies cream and truffles

        Just got back from my trip to Cancun! We were able to do a site inspection at the Hyatt Ziva. It was amazing!! I fell in love! So happy with my new location. The pictures do not do it any justice. It's breathtaking in person. Originally I wanted to get married on the beach but the gazebo is definitely the place to do it. 

         

        @Amandab1378 have you found any decorations for the gazebo? My next step is deciding on decorations!

         

        I'm still in search of a photographer and videographer. I wasn't too impressed w/ the one contracted w/ the hotel. I met w/ one of their reps and was very disappointed w/ the lack of preparation for the meeting. So if anyone can share who you're working with it would be great!

          @Amandab1378 those cake flavors sound amazing! I wonder if there's a way to taste any of them before deciding.
          @JRodz Is there a beach ceremony site? If so, what made you change your mind to the gazebo?

          @JRodz In terms of decorations for the gazebo, I'm still trying to figure out what to do. Thinking some sort of white curtains on the pillars and flowers. I haven't seen any photos of ceremonies at the site for inspiration so I'm sort of flying blind at this point.

           

          Are you guys planning on having the cocktail hour immediately following the ceremony? I keep going back and forth on whether to do it one hour after just to allow time for photos.
