  1. After a couple bad dresses from Wonderxue (who I was going with initially), I've sent in for quotes with Jasmine's, Babyonline, and Dressilyme..
  2. Okay ladies... I think I figured out how to upload our dvd to youtube. here it is! http://youtu.be/ubPoG5ZWfpA
  3. I'm so glad you like them! They really were a big hit with our friends and family. I tried to upload it, but the file size must be too large. I can try sending them to your personal email addresses if you want to PM them to me. As for downloading YouTube videos, here's a link to download w/o installing any extra software http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gt2SmMprL48
  4. omg... after cjfraser's post on wonderxue, followed by the beautiful pictures from rawalter, i'm thinking i should jump ship on wonderxue and go with jasmines. Wonderxue is quoting me $390 which is pretty close to Jasmine's prices. Agh!!!! Cjfraser, I'll be anxiously awaiting pictures from your wonderxue experience.
  5. My date is 12/13/13 at Marival Residences & World Spa in Puerto Vallarta. Most of the places that I looked at required a deposit or a room block with a deposit for each room. Marival fortunately didn't require any of that. Here is their trip advisor page (I used trip advisor to analyze most of the places I was interested in). Let me know if you have any questions! http://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g154267-d154855-Reviews-Marival_Residences_World_Spa-Nuevo_Vallarta_Pacific_Coast.html
  6. I found that this was more common when trying to reserve boutique style hotels. I was very fortunate that the location I chose didn't require any $ or bookings to schedule my date. Good luck!!
  7. I feel like they are good rates but I don't have too much to compare them too.. This is a rough estimate of our rates. This is round trip airfare and the all-inclusive stay. These prices also include unlimited excursions (zip lining, dolphin swims, sunset cruises, etc.) but since then they've limited it to 1 per stay I think. Let me know if you have any questions! 8 days/7 nights - $1634 7 days/6 nights - $1462 6 days/5 nights - $1292 5 days/4 nights - $1123 4 days/3 nights - $942 3 days/2 nights - $870
  8. I don't have any specific suggestions, but I would suggest checking out tripadvisor. That's where I got most of my information to help me decide. Nothing like reviews to tell it to you straight :-) Also, you may want to pay close attention to the week that you decide to go so that you don't get too many spring breakers, unless you'll have the fun party crowd that would like that.
  9. I decided on Marival Residences & World Spa. They have a free wedding package that people say is actually free lol. I do plan though to not fully utilize that and will be doing the private 4-hour reception which is $30 per person. Here is the free wedding package. I've read in reviews that people actually walked away without paying a single thing and had a fantastic time. Free Wedding Package at Marival Residences Fruit basket Up grades based on availability House Flowers for ceremony: location Bride’s bouquet and groom’s boutonniere Wedding toast with margaritas & martinis Option of spiritual or legal ceremony (including medical exams, judge fees and wedding certificates) Three-course dinner in specialty restaurant included for wedding group who are registered all-inclusive guests Wedding cake for all invited guests Bottle of champagne in room on wedding night 30-minute massage for both bride and groom Breakfast in bed. No minimum number of bookings required Available Extras Ceremony at sunset: $170 USD Mariachi band: $790 USD per hour Trio: $450 USD per hour DJ: $580 USD per event (4 hours) Photography: $450 USD (30 Photos) Wine/Champagne List: Prices upon request Minister Services: $390 USD Weekend or Statutory Mexican National Holiday wedding dates: $150 USD Translation of documents in Mexico (birth certificates): $30 USD per page Translation of divorce decree (if applicable): $30 USD
  10. Another option you have is to find a resort that doesn't charge the 'per person over 10'. It was something that I really stressed over so I finally found a resort where the dinner/cake/cocktails were all included if they stayed at the hotel, regardless of how many. However, that is only if you do the semi-private reception. If you want the private dinner, then you do have to pay the per person fees.
  11. We aren't planning to use a dj either. Two of my three bridesmaids are djs so I hope they know that I plan to fully use them at the reception to mc as well as premix some music. Don't forget to have your location provide you a microphone at your reception site
  12. I will definitely keep that in mind! My wedding isn't until December so I feel pretty comfortable with the amount of time as of right now. Has she sent you any mid-production photos?
  13. So I plan to use wonderxue on Etsy and she has this amazing dress in her portfolio that she's created. I'd really like to try on the original to make sure it does indeed fit my shape and size. I asked her if she knew the original inspiration and she said she didn't because she just made this off a photo someone sent her. Has anyone seen this dress and possibly know the original designer?
