  1. Yay! That's impressive packing We take two suitcases when not having a wedding lol Remember to slow down and take it all in; it's over in a flash. Can't wait!!!!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. It's going to be tight I'm not going to lie. My recommendation would be that after dinner they push the tables to the side/edges to give enough room to dance! I totally understand. It's a huge additional cost and they knew well before today! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. In most of the packages (if not all) there is a toast with champagne and canapes (appetizers) right after the ceremony. If you want more than the champagne, and want a full bar, then you need to pay for an hour for cocktails. This price is per person per hour and depends on which booze you choose (we chose the cheapest) They served the champagne but honestly can't recall if they served the canapes. An August 2014 bride on here stated her friend went around serving them as the waitresses didn't. I never had a canape to be honest (so busy with pics and congrats) but I swear from a pict
  4. I mean you are only 3 over. I would just be firm and say that's all you'll take! If it's your dream how can you not right? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Awe you are absolutely stunning!!!! Congrats your backdrop is breath taking. Can't wait for more! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Awe that's so sweet of your co workers. I was calm too! I think cause we had everything in order like you do OMG I'm so happy for you!!! Can't wait to see pics and hear all about it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Your dress looks gorgeous!!! Yes thank you cards are a lot of work. I forced myself to sit down one afternoon and just get ours done! Good job! Pina colada is my fave drink Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I also would use peso, not only is the exchange better it is their currency! Just ensure you give enough - i.e. Don't tip $1 peso for a dollar tip $10 peso or whatever. Don't waste your money in converting to US haha this is a large pet peeve of mine We had 4 of us. We started with 2 stylists but they brought in a 3rd. Ok for hair but recommend sticking to one lady for the BMs makeup as you'll find they vary in what they do. My one BM felt her makeup just wasn't the same as the other two so their stylist re did it. -- id recommend Carmen and Isis. We started at 9am and with a quick lun
  9. Welcome and congrats! I think the reason you may not be finding reviews of the in house DJ and spa is that they are in house and not a company per say. You may have luck finding reviews on them if you hit up the resort reviews section of this website and see if any brides commented on the services within their reviews. Or thru the numerous threads on here of your resort (which sounds like you've done). Good luck! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Those are perfect and can be worn after too!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Oh no since they changed their flights I'm assuming you can change your carrier with no issues? If yes can your TA find another carrier that does fly there during your wedding month? Good luck
  12. I can't believe you leave you in 8 days woohoo!!!!! The fans were priceless. Hottest day of the week and guests were using them left right and Centre Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Love everything!!! I really want song lyrics for my house I also agree it's fun and exciting and scary when you've hit a spot when it's risky to order from the states! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I didn't have a play list for the reception. My WC asked me at dinner what he should play haha. I had only chose the 3 songs needed for the ceremony. It's sandal season now so I bet (if you want sandals) a quick trip to the mall will yield plenty of selection. Not sure on favors. I ordered maracas but you won't have time to ship. Hmmmmmm
  15. Love the bubbles idea. Awe a great addition to the first dance. That's great your mom got you some fans I got my self stick on groupon but I've seen them at Michaels. Man I wish I had one for our wedding now!! It won't be long now!!! Can't wait Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. Since most live in Toronto I think handing out before you go is a good idea. Shipping may turn out costly! Since everyone stayed at the same resort I just did ours there. We did pre travel mailers which includes a brochure and luggage tags! Good luck Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. We had no issues whatsoever. They have a sound system and the DJ plays music off a laptop. High tech? Not really but it's also a fraction of the cost of hiring a Mayan DJ like discomovil. The music was loud, clear and didn't skip. He played what we wanted - we didn't provide a list just told them the genres we liked and he took requests. Good luck with your wedding and congrats
  18. Yay Krystal I'm so glad to hear. I've seen a couple pics hit Facebook. Can't wait to see some that include you congrats!
  19. Awe it made me cry. So beautiful. What a fantastic keepsake of your wedding day. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. @@WPGBride17 The beach bar isn't for the reception per say-- you would eat in the a'la carte and the beach bar would be the party after! It has separate pricing and includes alcohol, no food. For the palapa you would pay the upgrade fee if you don't have a package that includes the palapa. On top of that fee you would pay for your meal - so either beach BBQ buffet or the plated meals. The alcohol is included in the 3 hour rental of the palapa, but if you want to extend your reception time you would pay a price per person per hour for the alcohol. At the time I married kids unde
  21. Gorgeous. Your dress and YOU are beautiful. Glad it was everything you had hoped for. Congrats Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Interesting. It's funny how nuts they went over Ebola when TB kills millions a year and gets less funding and exposure Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. Hahah OMG so sorry. Can't count I guess Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. Yay!!!!!! Have the best week ever. I hope your wedding is everything you dreamed of and more. Your nails are gorgeous and I agree. I took one day off - grabbed a Starbucks, walked around Michaels for fun and just took it easy before all my family arrived! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
