  1. Shipping is to Us addresses only. The cost is just to high to Canada to make it worth it for you. Send me a PM if you want full details.
  2. Hi Ladies. I've got 30 straw beach bags that would be perfect to stuff with goodies for your guests as they arrive to your beach wedding. Each bag is lined with a colorful cotton fabric in bright beach colors, pink, blue, aqua, orange, lime green. If you are concerned about a color scheme you only see the lining when you look into the bag and can always stuff tissue paper in it with your own color. I bought them from target for my destination wedding and we've had to cancel. But I'm sure one of you lovely brides will do great things with them. I'm selling them as a group and shipping would be at an additional cost via UPS Ground. Send me your zip code for estimate of shipping cost. The bags dimensions are 13"W x 13"L x 5"D.
  3. Hey Ladies. Wanted to let you know that I was able to great rate for my guests by booking through a member. It was really easy, got a cheaper rate for guests and was able to get group benefits. Feel free to PM me if you want further details.
  4. I was able to get a great rate through a member of the Palace Resorts. It was really easy, got a gret rate for my guests and we were able to get the group benefits. It's definately worth looking into. You can PM me if you want more details.
  5. What a beautiful dress! You look gorgeous! Â Congratulations! Â
  6. What's good ladies? No action on this thread lately. The Save the Dates are in the mail! The contract is signed! The website is up and running! Photographer chosen! And we are thrilled! Â What's good with the rest of you Beach Palace Brides?
  7. Eunice! Thank you so much for posting. They did a fabulous job! You look beautiful! My hair is similar to yours (the natural curls a little tighter which makes my hair a little thicker) but it would be the same process. So if she could work yours she can work mine!  Do you know if they go to Cancun?  Quote: Originally Posted by eunice.kindred Hi all  I went to do a site visit a few weeks ago and had a trial done by Norma Fernandez - who works for MAC in Cancun. She is SUUUUPER nice and did an AWESOME job for my trial and her prices are soo much more reasonable compared to a few other artists in town. She brought another girl with her, Lesley, to do my hair and i had my reservations about how she did. I literally came out of the pool, washed my hair and plopped down for my trial - yes a sopping mop of tangled mess. I don't know any other worse scenario I could have given Lesley so I was thinkng to myself- if i come out of this half decent she's good. I need a ton of heat for my hair - and its THICK- i swear i have enough hair for two people. and its long. my fears were suddenly alleviated when after blow drying my hair out into a crazy 'fro, she whipped out a chi flat iron. about a half hour later of curling and twirling i had a fancy wavy updo that she fastened with some kind of clip and rubber band and bobby pins. I want to wear my hair up for the ceremony and dinner then let it out and down for the dancing. I didn't get too specific with style - i just let Norma and Jen do their thang and it turned out really really awesome. My fi was there and I think he really really liked it b/c my makeup just looked like an enhancement of me - i didn't look a completely different person. the makeup felt light - I asked for natural and to play up my eyes with lashes. and it came out great! i'm posting a random pic of what my hair looks like natural - and then the "after" pics. any questions just ask! natural hair - but brown when this pic was taken  in the process - with the sun on me - see that frizzy hair! lol   all done!
  8. Jackie_C, Â How far in advance of the wedding did you arrive? I was just starting to think of the logistics of carrying linens and decor stuff and getting all that stuff situated and carrying to OOT bag stuff and getting bags stuffed and delivered before guest arrive. Â How much time do youthink it would take and do you think my fiance and I could carry all that stuff with us?
  9. Jackie you look beautiful! I am so inspired by your look. I was so afraid that my dress was going to be too formal and out of place for a destination wedding. But now seeing how beautiful you looked, I'm totally psyched!
  10. Hey AshleyNicole. Â Depending on the cost for the hotel to provide it I'm planning on bringing some decor stuff as well. There are lots of places to look for stuff but I think Jackie's recomendation to look see what brides on the boards recommend is best. Â You could also go to a fabric shop and make stuff yourself if you're crafty. Â As for photographers, my Miami wedding coordinator said I can bring in a photographer for the day if I buy a day pass for them. So you'll have lots of options. The brides on this boards have written extensively about ones that they like. I started my reasearch ehre on teh this board and also checked out http://www.wpja.com/ Alot of the better photograpehrs are members of that assocaition. Â
  11. Thanks for the kind words. I had such a hard time getting in the spirit of dress shopping. No matter what I tried on it just seemed like another white dress. when I tried this dress on my sister and best friend, who are maids of honors, cried. And the mom's who were there shopping with their daughters just said, "honey you better get that dress." So I got it. Everyone just thought it looked great on my skin tone. Â But now I'm started to get really excited cause I took it to a wonderful seamstress and she took off the bow, is making the neck line a sweet heart neckline and made the skirt a real mermaid skirt. Â So now I love it! Â I say all of that to say if anyone is thinking of hitting the sale I say go. Even if you don't find the dress of your dreams, you can always turn a good dress into the dress of your dreams Â
  12. We're all set for June 18, 2011. We're expecting about 50-60 guests, so we'll have private functions and all that jazz. Â Its cool to have private functions, not so cool to have to figure out how to pay for decor. It also drives up the extras. Â For example, I'm currently in the process of choosing between decor, extras like fire works for ceremony and fire dancers for rehearsal dinner, and a top quality photographer. At the end of the day, somethings' gotta give. Â Did you use the hotel's photographer or did you handle that another way? Are you satisfied with your pictures? Â
  13. That's exactly what I wantedt o hear Jackie! I was thinking of bringing some decor with me, so its good to know that they are open to that. Â I kind of have my heart set on chivari chairs, but seeing how beautiful your's looked with the bows you brought, I'm thinking why spend the extra money on that? Â Â I'm so exctied! Â
  14. Thats what I figured. Hopefully it won't be too bad in June and if it is maybe we can make arrangements to have a tent to block out some of the sun. Â Any otehr tips now that you've gone through the whole process? Â Â
  15. Hey AsheleyNicole. Sorry for delaying in getting this info to you but when I read the description of the Diamond package in teh pdf description sent by the weddings department it says silver sashes. So that is probably the diamond package. Â
  16. Hey Jackie! Congratulations! Thanks a Million for checking back in. This is awesome! Â How was the temperature up there for your wedding? A friend of mine was at a wedding there 1 month ago at 6pm on a Saturday and said it was unbearably hot and suggested I start thinking right away about having the ceremony indoors. Â Was a ceremony on the sky lounge too hot to handle? Â
  17. Sorry for the delay ladies. Here's a pic! And it was perfect condition   Â
  18. I found my dress at teh DC running of the brides. So for any bride that's out there wondering if they should go, GO! It's worth it. Just have the right attitude. Stay open minded and willing to try on anyting that may fit. Even if you don't get any of those dresses it gets your team excited and motivated to get as many dresses as possible for you to try on. (and yes, please don't try to do this event without a team). As they go out and get as many dresses as they can for you other people wonder your way with trades because they hope that you haev soemthing they want in your very large pile of dresses. My dress came to me by way of trade and it ws gorgeous. No damages or anything that needed repair. I am getting it taken in a bit because its kind of a non-commital skirt. Not really an A-line not really a mermaid. So my seamstress is making it more of a mermaid, taking off the bow and giving it a sweet heart neckline. But when I'm done, it will be the only dress like it out there, period. Â Anyway, thanks for letting me rant. I'm glad otehr brides had a great experience as well.
  19. That's a good guess but I'm pretty suer they can get what ever color fabric you want up there. I'm wondering how much it would cost to get some flowers up there. Â Probably the best thing to do is ask the wedding coordinator. I'm sure they can execute whatever you want done. Â
  20. Great suggestions ladies. We decided to send out post card STD's. On the backside we have said the following: Â Join us for our wedding in paradise! Â Bride and Groom say "I Do." Cancun, Mexico June 2011 Â Reception New York City October 2011 Â Formal invitation to follow. For more information please visit our website. Â I thought this way everyone knows upfront they can come to either, neither or both. I'm not worried about those that use the AHR as an excuse to not come to Mexico. Frankly, I'm glad their saving me the time it takes to make the extra OOT bag Â
