    Chicago Bride -

     

    I got my dress in June and they told me it would take 6 months to get in - so Dec 2010 I should get my dress. Then alterations for my dress. I have also have a bridal session scheduled in April/May - so I need my dress to be ready by then. I would definitely start finding a dress now. If you buy off the rack then you can take it with you immediately but if your dress has to be made - you're looking at some serious fees they love to tack on. If you fit the sample and there's nothing wrong with it - you can ask if they'll sell you the sample if you're in a pinch.

          1.  is a beach reception better at the Royal or Gran Porto?

          2.  is it a pain to stay at the Royal when all of our guests are staying at the Gran Porto?  We need to stay at the Royal in order to have the wedding there but im concerned about not being able to spend time with our guests and being able to have my bridal party stay with me the night before the wedding...

          3.  how expensive the the Glass Bar restaurant for a private welcome party?  any other suggestions for places to hold a welcome party?

           

          any suggestions/info would be greatly appreciated!

           

          Thanks so much!

          -Cat


          Cat - did you ever get any of your questions answered? Let us know if not! Welcome to the thread!! It's a great group of ladies!

              Here is a picture of what I think we're doing for center pieces.  I know their tall and the people at the tables won't really be able to see across to the person sitting opposite them but what ever they looks cool! haha.  9505 $50 Center.jpg My girls are 9348 $45 Bridesmaids.jpg  and mine is 9256 $40 Bride.jpg
              Marvin said they won't have to be put together so I can jsut have a brides maid put them on the tables for me.  YES! save $350 thank you!  Still worried about make up and hair though, I actually went with my sister for her wedding trial and again hated it! Maybe I'm just too picky. 

               

              JoZee - Are you having a beach reception or indoor reception? If you see a girl in traditional dress walking by - that'll be me! So cool to have a buddy!!  =) I decided to do tea ceremony during rehearsal dinner. Everyone will arrive on Wednesday so it'll be a fun thing for them to experience. I didn't want to load our wedding day with activities. Been there and done that at another wedding and it was exhausting.

               

              Is anyone else thinking of doing like a group dance with the bridal party? I was thinking an 80s montage or maybe a simple salsa dance. =)

                  Just wanted to say that I had my bridal shower this weekend and it was really great!!! My mom and sister did most of the planning and then my bridesmaids and other 2 sisters did the decorations. I had such a great time!!!!

                   

                  Just wanted to share how happy I am this weekend!

                   

                  Oh and we decided the location for the reheral dinner. We are doing it at El Bistro at La Tortuga Hotel.

                   

                  YAY!!!!



                  Hi Jenny! I am new to the forum but I have already done tons of research. I wanted to have my rehersal dinner at El Bistro at La Tortuga Hotel also.  How did you get in contact with them? I sent an email, but no replies as of yet. Also, do you know how far the restaruant is from the resort? I am have some nervous nellies with me with everything that is going down in Mexico right now. Can you share any pricing info? Thanks so much and sorry for all the questions.

                    Hi Diahr welcome!

                     

                    What e-mail did you try to contact them at? try this one elbistro@hotellatortuga.com, they got right back to me. It is only a block way. You literally walk out of the resort up the street onto 5th take a left, and its the first street on your right. You walk down and its right there on your left.

                     

                     

                    Here is the pricing: I love the menu for the cocktail food :) I wanted so bad to have our reharesal here but the terrace I think comfortably would fit 50 max

                      You are the best!! I tried to contact them by filling out an info sheet on-line but I could have defintely got it confused with another place.  This is awesome!!  Going straight to the FI afterwork with this.

                       

                      -Thanks again!
