  1. Not sure why this is showing as 4.5 stars. I definitely give him 5!!!
  2. Hi ladies, This is a random question, but I am curious if any of you have guests who are or have booked an outside resort? I have a few family members who are discussing staying at other resorts that are cheaper. Is it customary for the bride and groom to pay for their guest pass on the day of the wedding, or do they typically pay for that themselves? I would really prefer to have everyone (especially family) stay at the same resort, but I guess I can't ask that if it's too much money for them. Thanks girls, Mikaela
  3. Can I ask you girls what you are being quoted for hair and makeup from outside vendors. Thanks ladies!!
  4. I think that's a great price!! We ended up goin with the colonial for $1850 p/p. The Riviera or White sands were going to cost 2300-2500 p/p!!!! I know march is a busy time of year but the prices still seem quite high. Oh well!
  5. Today we finalized the plans with the TA, and got the room block opened up. Officially getting married on March 21st! I can't wait!!! How long do most dresses take to order? Am I pushing it if I wait until August to go look? Can someone please send me the link to the facebook group? I would love to join! Thanks ladies Mikaela
  6. Hi Soon2BeMrsW, I looked into booking with WestJet, and the prices were SO high! I was shocked. I ended up booking with SunWing, and the prices were a lot more reasonable
  7. Thank you for the information! We ended up going with the Colonial, to keep costs down a little bit. I can't wait!!!
  8. Thank you so much for the info. So far we are looking at prices around $1950 p/p but online it shows around $100 cheaper. I'm just waiting to see what the group rate will be. Like every 15th person is free or something. It's a lot to ask our guests to pay, but at the end of the day we need to book a resort that makes us happy, and everyone that comes is a bonus. I hope we can get this all organized so I can finalize the wedding date!!
  9. It's march 21st tentatively. Can I ask any brides from Calgary or anywhere in Canada really, what kind of group rates you received? We are getting quotes but I can find prices on Expedia for less.
  10. Thanks Casey! Is that $1400 on top of the wedding package? If they have a second bar tender do you pay even more? I've put a Wedding date on hold March, I just need to confirm our travel plans. Mikaela
  11. Oops I wrote too soon, I managed to find pricing on their website. Can anyone let me know what kind of meal options they serve with the different packages? Thanks!!!
  12. Okay thank you. My destination wedding specialist seems to think they offer beach receptions, but I haven't been able to find any info on it!
  13. Hi ladies, I am thinking of having our wedding at grand palladium riviera, and just had a few questions. Can anyone tell me a little about pricing for having a beach reception? Also are there many things to do at nit, such as a disco or something that doesn't close at 11... I love the look of the pure package, and we will have about 40+ people.." Any clue what the package costs! If I could also get the info sheet emailed to me, I would really appreciate it. Mikaela_jones4@hotmail.com Thank you all so much!, Mikaela
  14. Hello, I am in the beginning stages of planning my wedding for march 2014. I Stayed at akumal in March 2012 with some girlfriends and had the best vacation, ever!!! When we wee there we got drinks from the sports bar until midnight (included). There are bands and dancing at the hascenda until midnight when the disco opens. It's the best club I have ever been to at a resort!! So fun I convinced my fiancé to have our wedding here. Does anyone know if they offer beach receptions? Or is the poolside the only outdoor options?
  15. Thanks! I would love all white peonies so I'll have to ask them when they get back to me
