About NIKKI2013

  1. Hello Everyone- Well our wedding has come and gone as of March 22, 2013. We had an amazing time! Our wedding at Barceló Maya Palace Deluxe was awesome! Victoria was our wedding coordinator and she really did a get job! I have a tone of pictures. If anyone has any question about their upcoming wedding I will be more than happy to answer them. We had our ceremony at the Gazebo (5:00) and the reception was at the Palamas Grill (7:00). I did get my hair & make up done at the spa.
  2. Ok, So Next week we leave on Tuesday morning for Mexico!! Our wedding is on March 22 @ 5. We went with the strawberry package. We are having our ceremony under the gazebo and our reception at the grill palmeras. We are bringing our friends that do photography and videography and we are paying for their trip plus an additional $500 on top with still can in cheaper than any other package that we found in Mexico. Plus they will be taking picture through out the entire stay. We are going to have about 40 people attending the wedding.We didn't upgrade our wedding cake but I am getting an outside vendor to do a special surprise cake for the groom( www.zaidamarcos.com). I bought a cake topper off of etsy.com that just says Mr. & Mrs. Anderson.We payed for an outside Dj-Discomovilcancun-Ricardo. We were able to pay the entire balance through pay-pal. He also will bring his generator in for $200. Our wedding coordinator Victoria and she really has been pretty good on responding. At the beginning it was a little frustrating but the closer the wedding was getting the better she got about responding.We are having our rehearsal dinner off the premises of the hotel at Latitude 20.( http://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g153510-d2062067-Reviews-Restaurant_Latitude_20-Puerto_Aventuras_Yucatan_Peninsula.html) They have great reviews and they have been good on helping us make arrangements. We did get vans for everyone to be transferred back and fourth to and from the hotel. It was $6 a person round trip.For our OOT bags we bought koozies, cups, snacks, hand sanitizer, Alive,and a brochures made off of vista prints(http://www.vistaprint.com/custom-brochures.aspx?&GP=3%2f15%2f2013+11%3a30%3a23+AM&GPS=2774828104&GNF=0). We purchased our koozies and cups from http://www.discountfavors.com/. They turned our great and the price was good. I cant wait til we leave. Any advice or heads up from previous brides at Barcelo Maya Palace Deluxe is greatly appreciated.
  3. I bought these lovely Teal Badgley Mischka heels thinking they would be the color of my wedding colors but unfortunately they are darker then I wanted them to be. I have never worn them outside of my house. I paid over $220 for them. Serious buyer inquire only.

  5. MexicoHereICome: Thank you so much for adding your review to the forum! Reading you reviews makes me even more excited about my wedding in March 2013. It sounds like you guys had an amazing time. I have been worried about the Spa with doing hair and make up just cause you never know if they are good or not and I haven't heard of anyone really using them or seen any pictures of their work. I am glad you that it all worked out and would love to see pictures. Thank you for sharing. Congratulations! I cant wait to see more pictures!
  6. I really wanted my save the dates to be a passport because it will inform all of the people that we invite information on our wedding. So my mom goes I can make those so that is what she did! She did an awsome job. We bought the paper from Texas Art Supply and she did everything on her computer then took it down to a printed and had them print over 100 save the dates. She cut them and binded them with her sewing machine! I couldnt ask for better Passport Save the dates for the price we paid. Plus we customized it to what I wanted down to the very last detail.
  7. I am sorry that you are facing this as a problem! Bridesmaids should not put any Bride in a position that you are facing. They should just be honored that you have asked them to be part of your special day! I have 7 bridesmaids one which is married and I have know her since we were in 4th grade so she is my Matron of Honor and I have also picked my sister which is not married to be you Maid of Honor so they utlimately are they the same. But to be honest all 7 of my bridesmaids are what I consider extremely close and are considered a Maid of Honor or Matron of Honor. None of my FI's groomsmen are of my friend husbands and I dont think the guy really care it is just the Bridesmaid that cares. Im sure her husband will be just as happy to be part of the festivities and he doesn't have to pay for the suit...haha. Maybe you can come up with special names for each individual bridesmaid with different roles so that each will feel that they have an important place instead of just calling one a MOA. Im not sure if this helps but I sure whatever you decide everything will work out in the end and your special day will be just as you envisioned it. Best wishes!

  9. We are doing Coral and Turquoise as our wedding colors. I had my bridesmaids go through bella bridesmaid for the dresses. I picked out Alfred Sung dresses in Firecracker and the girls picked their owe style of dress. This is one of the styles in the color http://www.dessy.com/dresses/bridesmaid/d530/ and they groomsmen will where linen pants with a Turquoise linen shirt.
  10. I am not sure where Coco Beach is. In this website where people are talking about Coco beach it sounds like it is in front of Coco bar but I could be wrong. Here is the link : http://www.unofficial-barcelo-maya.com/forum/index.php?topic=26154.0
