  1. Congrats!! You look gorgeous!! I can't wait for more pics Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I sent in all the paper work 3 months prior so by the time I had my WC she had seen it. I wouldn't send numerous emails. Save your questions - when she replies send the next batch. Keep them simple in wording / point form I had my appts at the spa booked beforehand but changed the time upon arrival. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. The airport and check in was enough. I broke down in my room haha it's bound to happen as you said. You aren't. We had some pretty big downers at our wedding. We let it slide off our back and let it be their issue. Enjoy your week! You picked a great resort. They got to see what it was about before they booked. Their happiness on vacation is their issue.

  4. I felt my communication slowed down some too haha! Sorry ladies! No haven't heard of any of the new ones but I'm sure they are great Yes we had guests without the divider and beware the list you send with room preferences isn't even looked at it seems. Rooms with 4 people got 1 bed etc. lots of hassles at check in and changing of rooms Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Love the belt. Glad that's all working out Just shy of a month now!!!! Ahhh the maracas. Love em and such a great deal!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. It's not like May 7-14 is that long away. Wow. Sorry Hun. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. I feel your pain. This is very common for destination weddings even from ones own family members. The girl who I thought was my best friend and whom I considered paying for her trip barely said a word to me after I got engaged and we were inseparable. Long story short I got engaged April 2014 and I haven't talked to her since that May. Not a word. It used to cause me stress and tears then I realized it wasn't worth my time. I focused on the people who did come (and some were shockers) and fostered those relationships. It's tough, it makes no sense and it can be darn we'll hurtful
  8. Yes all of my wedding party had their makeup done there. They use MAC and do a great job. They will apply false lashes as well. They have their own stock unless you like a specific brand. I looked to bring someone on site for hair and make up and the cost I was quoted was HIGH. Like over $600. I felt the spa on site did great work. But I am pretty easy going as I don't wear much make up in person. Depends what you are used too I am guessing. Grand Sirenis has a FB page. Hmmmmm I will see if I can find the link Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. They do fabulous work! They do this each and everyday so are experienced. I had hair barely to my chin and they got it into an up do. Was blown away! Are you on FB? I have posted pics recently on the GS page! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk This is all I have on my phone. Will look at home for pics the girls took of me at the salon!

  10. I emailed them 3 times leading up too because I worried too. That's why I picked them (ok not the only reason but one lol). She sent me a screen shot of my booking in their spreadsheet to ease my mind lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Love the bow ties! Hope they meet your standards. Can you share the etsy site for wedding songs! Would love that. I got a sign with our wedding date but this is up my alley too!! Keep us posted on your wedding dress. I'd go elsewhere too. Like come on! Ugh on the ring! Hope it's back soon. I had a recent issue too. My inspection was good and they sent off to be soldered. At that location (companies manufacturing location) they said a claw was broken and needed to be fixed. ??? Calgary just said it passed inspection so I refused to pay the charge. Ring came back fixed but no sold
  12. And when is Jamaica?!? I'm in ON in August. Could do Friday August 5 or a Saturday but realize you guys like week nights. Keep me on your radar! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Awesome!! You're next!!! Yay!!! You'll get it all done with time to spare. It'll help pass time Hahahah off topic but LOVE your runners Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Gorgeous!!!! Your wedding will be here before you know it. Can't wait to hear all about it I agree re alterations - mine took darn near 3 months. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. We got married at the Grand Sirenis in the Mayan Riveria. I felt it was very budget friendly. Both for guests and wedding packages. In 2015 our Alberta guests paid $1565 all in for 7 nights and our Ontario guests $1465. We had 45 people and a lot of extras for around $5500 Canadian. I agree with Ann, your TA should be helping to guide your decision! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. Keep us posted on your dress!! Hope it's perfect now! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Yay!!! You are relaxed because you were prepared!! You've done great and have all You need Your nails are simply gorgeous! Omg can't wait to hear all about it. So excited as I type you are on your way to Mexico. Have a blast!!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. I'm drawing a blank on your actual wedding day but I know it's coming up super quick. I hope you have the wedding of your dreams!!! Can't wait to hear how it went and see all your pics Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. I would do it again. Yes shipping was pricey but they are top quality. We used them all week in Mexico in the sand, pool and ocean. They've been washed by hand and in the dishwasher and still look new I tried to make my own but realized I was far from crafty. Retailers in our city were too expensive. I'd say just do it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. Just in case I miss you before you go, have a FABULOUS wedding week. I hope your wedding is everything you've dreamed of and more. You've put a lot of effort in and I'm sure all your hard work will pay off and everything will be beautiful. Can't wait to hear all about it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. I think with purple and orange you can save your cash on the colored cloths for the alter. It'll be overkill. You can see my pics below in the links. I had fuchsia turquoise and orange. I feel less is more in Mexico Agree though. Hard to envision stuff. Get on Pinterest and Google to find pics in your color scheme and such. For chairs, if you want pic two or three you'll have to upgrade your chairs! The basic chair included is like a patio plastic chair. It will come standard with a white cover. The chair bow is extra. Love we have the same wedding date at the same resort.
  22. Lovely photos. So gorgeous. I also loved the palm tree forest backdrop in some of my photos too. The area around the palapa is gorgeous Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. Congrats on being a MRS Your dress is gorgeous! I had an Asian seamstress who could speak English and she was blunt so maybe a translator ain't a bad thing Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
