  1. Thanks ladies! She is a really good baby and just trying to enjoy these first few months as time sure is flying! Apologize for the huge picture - clearly I'm out of practice !
  2. Hi ladies! This is my first post in a long long time and I guess I'm behind the eight ball because we welcomed our beautiful Ruby Hannah on January 26 of this year!
  3. Hi there! Â My husband and I used the ClearBlue Fertility Monitor ,,, the first two months we were TTC we didn't keep track but all the signs made me suspect that I was ovulating late.. so month three we tried the fertility monitor and i wasn't ovulating til day 18 (I actually had to buy two boxes b/c mine only came with 7 days...)... BUT IT WORKED! I am 17 weeks now and due beginning of Feb!
  4. Hi ladies! Just checking in with all my Paradisus Brides! I promise things will work out - even with the change in ownership.. and the ladies are right.. if your wedding is next month they have 10-15 weddings to worry about before yours... just keep telling yourself that! Hope everyone is doing well!
  5. Hi Ladies! I am an old bride on this forum (married at the Paradisus in Mayan on 200 but my hubby and I are heading to the Excellence next Friday for a week so I will be sure to report back on the hotel, facilities and any weddings that are taking place while we are there!

I have e-mailed her more than once over the last two months and haven't heard a word. I am getting nervous- my wedding is in 3 months and we haven't planned a thing with the resort. We did a legal ceremony and that's all we needed. In terms of birth certs, we needed what called the "long version" (not just your wallet card size) and I just applied to our Provincial Ministry of Health for those!
  7. Hi girls! Just checking in! We had the mariachi band (6 piece) and it was absolutely amazing! Probably one of the best parts of the reception - everyone kept raving about how wonderful they were. We used the one through the resort and yes it was about $1000 bucks...

That's great to hear. Yup ours was legal! Our coordinator told us then judge that does the weddings for the Paradisus spoke English - I gather though that this isn't a common practice. We couldn't change what needed to be included - but were free to add as we wanted..
  9. Unfortunately many of the resorts/hotels have different practices which is frustrating in determining what's necessary. In terms of a translation - I did that with my marriage certificate and it was reallly straightforward. The Ministry of Transportation/and or City of Toronto has a list of "certified translators" that they gave me - It cost me $70 and they have a special seal that they put on it.
  10. I would have to disagree with Malisa - we had a legal ceremony in English. And while you can't remove parts - you can certainly add things in. We did our own vows and also a sand ceremony - in terms of structure, we did the vows and then sand ceremony and then the exchange of the rings - I'll see if i can dig it up!

Calgary prices are always a little bit more than toronto - I think if that's the one you want you should go for it.. further to my comment above - if people cannot afford 1680 they likely cannot afford something a few hundred buck less!

  13. HI ladies! As a fellow Canadian who had a legal wedding in Mexico I will tell you that a) I had to get it translated from Spanish to English I brought back the Spanish certif - contacted a certified translator (I got this through the MInistry of Transportation) and paid $70 bucks c) I could not change anything (banking, drivers license, health card, passport etc) without both the Spanish and English versions
  14. We didn't even include an RSVP card. We included hotel information, TA information, and information for our Wedsite asking guests to RSVP
  15. I would agree with the other ladies - We really looked at the potential guest list and the financial situations (Generally speaking) in deciding. I think no matter what price point you are at - there will be people who won't go because of the cost. I feel as though someone who can pay $1500 can likely pay $1700 - provided they are given notice far enough in advance - ours was about $1700 out of Toronto and $1850 out of Calgary (taxes included) for the week .. we had 60 ppl.
