  1. Hi ladies, our wedding was on July 14th and I just wanted to share our wedding video and pictures with you all. Let me know if you have any questions regarding the resort / wedding stuff. Getting married at The Royal PDC was the absolute best! Our guests had such an amazing time and many said it was the best wedding they've ever been to. We are STILL in wedding withdrawal. Good luck to all you future brides out there - and enjoy the moments planning, it will end before you know it!!!

  2. Thanks for the review, it was super helpful! Your ceremony pic looked gorg! We are using the same little vials for our placecards as well! <3 Martha Stewart.
  3. I am completely in the same boat as you! I have an excel spreadsheet of all the packages I'm expecting so that I keep up with what's coming. I'm guessing we'll fill up at least 3 extra luggages of wedding stuff. =T I am only bringing 2 dresses though, so you got me beat!
  4. Thanks! Oh yea, that's what I meant... pretty much the same shade as my shoes. I would highly recommend Jasmine's! They pretty much take all of the uneasiness of ordering a dress overseas out of the equation. They are a little pricier than other companies, but I think totally worth it. Great communication, great flexibility.
  5. oh, i got it from jasmine's bridal btw. it's a combination of an alita graham top and jim hjelm bottom. i threw in the bow.
  6. Just got my dress it! I like it a lot but it's super heavy and really big on the top (you can't tell, but I can fit a whole fist through the top gap. I don't know if it's my fault or their's...I don't think I lost that much weight...oh well, will get it fixed somehow. Also, I think I'm going to make a pink bow instead, to match the groomsmen's bowties.
  7. Hi ladies! Just wanted to share my progress pictures with you all. I ordered this from Jasmine's Bridal and took different parts of several dresses and put them together. The original design was going to be an Alita Graham, but then I changed the bottom to a Jim Hjelm ...and also added a bow in the back:
  8. Kelly - that is so exciting! I can't believe you finally made it!!! Congrats! Can't wait to hear all about it and see pics! Ladies - I need your help! For some strange reason, I just had the urge to switch my reception site from the central garden to the beach (I saw a pretty picture). I was initially encouraged to go with the central garden because it would be easier to walk on, less messy (less wind/sand)...but I'm thinking what's the point of travelling to Mexico to have a grass wedding!? What are some of your pros and cons for beach vs. central garden and what has your experience been (for past brides). For the beach wedding - do people take off their shoes? Does the sand get in your food? Thanks for your help!!!! <3
  9. I missed the webinar too =( Any good advice that you guys picked up would be super helpful! Also, I just found these linen pants for my groomsmen. Initially was going to go with studiosuits.com, but for $20, this is a steal! A couple of them tried the pants on yesterday and they fit well and looks nice. Not see-through and it has a tiny bit of a tighter fit, but that's ok because my groomsmen will be wearing suspenders and a bowtie with it (so I don't want it to be too loose anyways). The price in-stores is $20 right now, but online it is $30. It may be more convenient to buy online to get the exact sizes and there is a 20% code until 5/8 making them $24 each.
  10. I'm using Fer Juaristi. Currently looking into underwater cenote TTD shoots - any recommendations? I LOVE del sol but a little out of my price range. I am also considering Ivan Luckie.
  11. Thanks Rocio! I asked my WC about some of these and these were her answers: 1. Are we able to transfer our hair/make-up and face saver treatment that comes in the Luxury package to other people (ex: MIL or father Package inclusions have no cash value and cannot be substituted or exchanged for additional services neither give to some one else. 2. Can we move the wedding photographer that comes in the package to the rehearsal dinner? You can not move the photographer service to another date. Must be the same date of the wedding. 3. Has anyone opted to do the buffet (for 50+ people)? How was this? Which one did you choose? 4. Has anyone walked over to the MAC store to get your make-up done? 5. Are the under-table lights for the beach receptions only? Or can we get them if our reception is in the central garden? The lights under the tables are under availability. (what does this mean??) That's good to hear that they let you transfer the make-up to another night! I will ask my WC about that!

I am not sure if you will be able to transfer to other people, but you don't have to use the services on the day of the wedding. I am getting my make-up done on Thursday for the Welcome Cocktail Hour and hair on Saturday for the wedding. My cousin is doing my make-up on the day of the wedding. 2. I think the answer is No, but confirm first. I tried to move the photographer on Thursday for the Welcome Cocktail and was told I can only use him/her for the Ceremony. I have the Ultimate Lux Package and is clearly stated on my package list that the photographer for the Ceremony. So I think you may get the same answer . . . . but it doesn't hurt to ask. Rocio
  12. A couple of questions for you ladies (I'm still trying to catch up on the forums...on page 646 so far) - sorry if this has been answered. 1. Are we able to transfer our hair/make-up and face saver treatment that comes in the Luxury package to other people (ex: MIL or father)? 2. Can we move the wedding photographer that comes in the package to the rehearsal dinner? 3. Has anyone opted to do the buffet (for 50+ people)? How was this? Which one did you choose? 4. Has anyone walked over to the MAC store to get your make-up done? 5. Are the under-table lights for the beach receptions only? Or can we get them if our reception is in the central garden? Thanks for your help ladies!
  13. Hey qgirl2, I asked Marvin about buying bulk flowers, but he said it is not their practice to do that but he would do it - he sounded hesitant though. If you don't mind me asking, what did he quote you for your bulk flowers? I just want to get some sort of idea. I was planning on having my aunt (florist) make our bouquets, etc. You can PM me too if you prefer.
