  1. I dont know when you booked your date, but you can try to say that they didnt charge then when you booked....but they are sticklers on their fees! It sucks!! They gave me a list of 4 different options for an internal DJ....ask them for the list...
  2. I did a group dinner at the seafood restaurant with 28 people and they still put up as two long tables...and the problem with the long tables is that you cant talk to anyone besides who is sitting next to you anyways...lol I would DEFINATELY do the japanese and do 2 tables!! I wish I would have done my group dinner there - BUT, just as an FYI - I did NOT have to pay per person for my group dinner....I waited until I got down there, I asked the WC about it and she said I would have to pay the 20 pp for a group over 20...THEN, I checked with concierge and they made the reservation under e
  3. I wouldnt worry about them not standing by the things you discussed with karla...they will do what they need to in order to make your day perfect... the lindo lobby bar doesnt really have a name...it is just the lobby bar....inside the bar there is a floor to ceiling fish tank, but the bar stunk like stale alcohol ...we would go in there to get our drinks, but there is a little area outside of the lobby bar with tables and chairs (it is on the little bridge that leads to the photo shop (you will totally understand when you get there)..but anyways, THAT is where all my guests ended up mee
  4. If your suitcase is over 50lbs, it is $25....so my suggestion is to just check an extra bag which is also $25 (i had overweight on the way there and 2 checked bags on the way back)....let me know if you have any other questions ....just as an FYI for any of your guests that are flying out of Ohare...if you are flying USA 3000, you will flight out of terminal 5 (international). BUT, if you have guests flying United or American (I had people on all 3), they will fly out of United and American terminals, NOT the international terminal.... ALL airlines will fly back in to terminal 5 (internatio
  5. I was told that as of May 1, there was a new law that they were not allowed to perform the ceremony in english...so the judge did it in spanish, and then my WC translated...he did do our vows in english....you will have the option to say your own vows, but the ceremony is very simple and quick (its really good)...you will not see what the judge is going to say before the ceremony, but just trust them - like I said, it is very good, quick and simple.... I had a lot of people help me transport things down there - depending on the airline, you can pack an extra suitcase and just pay a fee..
  6. I am so sorry about your aunt!! That is horrible! And that really sucks about the way Iberostar handled it but I am NOT surprised....I hope that is your only experience with them that you will be disappointed in I am sure everything will work out with your wedding coordinator...to be honest, we didnt really finalize everything until we met with them when we got down there so dont worry!! I cannot say that I would have not chosen that resort if I had to go back and do it again, because it was amazing...but the customer service definately needs improvement! Good luck with e
  7. I had a completely different dinner option - my guests had to choose from 5 options but I have no idea how I got that menu?!? Maybe a difference between Del Mar and Lindo?? I got to pick a menu, and I chose the Italian - We had to choose from Filet Mignon, Snapper, Chicken, or Lobster Medallions and it was ALL very good!! The best food was the reception food Katie - there is a toolbar at the top of this box when you are posting...there is the paperclip for attachments but if you look to the left of that there is a little picture (next to the video) - you can click on the that little
  8. So I wanted to post this JUST as a heads up - I do not want to scare anyone, and the resort is great, but we did have a BIG issue so be careful... I was warned about this and hoped that it wouldnt happen to us - my brother had $300 stollen right out of his safe - I had been warned by 2 other brides there that had the same thing happen in the last 2 years but I had hoped it would be different - I dont think that this is because it was MEXICO - it could happen anywhere BUT the one thing that I was warned about even more was what really upset me - the WAY the resort handled it was HORRIBLE
  9. They are allowed everywhere except the disco ....they can still go to all the lobby bars....and they are allowed at all the shows....the night shows are a good place for all ages...the adults can sit around and have drinks, and it is something for the kids to watch too! they have really good shows...my group went to the back (of the seating area) every night and pulled a bunch of tables and chair together for whoever wanted to join, but honestly, a lot of people went to bed early...the sun drains you - and we drank all day long..lol the kids can participate in the games by the pool ever
  10. Hi Ladies!! I am BACK!! Cannot believe it is OVER I dont have time right now to write a full review because my emails at work are out of control BUT I wanted to give a couple QUICK tips - 1. I did not hire a professional photographer but the resort company did come and shoot my wedding and still offered me a package - here is a slideshow so you can see their work - the guy that shot my wedding was Hideki and he did an AMAZING job - I didnt even realize he was there...lol!!! this slideshow is only good for about a week so be sure to take a look if you are interested in the resort pho
  11. I got the starfish in the mail yesterday!! yay!!! Who am I sending it to next?!?!?!?!? I leave in 9 days!!!! yahooooo!!!!
  12. Im using the spa at the resort....they are still expensive if you dont have the mac daddy package...but I will let you know how it goes - someone else used them and said they did a great job....but a lot of the girls brought someone in to do their hair. I am using the spa for hair and makeup (Erin did too and she looked BEAUTIFUL)....I will let you know what I think when I get back!
  13. Im staying at the Lindo so I will let you know as soon as I get back because I plan on doing the same thing....the bars on the Maya side look really nice...and big so I am going to check those out....I just made my appt to meet with Lily the day before we arrive at the Lindo so I will try to get a tour then ....I leave in 17 days and Im in major freak out mode...I need an assistant for the next 2 weeks...between work, and I own a landscaping company (this week we start work), and all my last min stuff I feel like I am bound to forget something We need to make a master check list!!
