  1. Good idea to ask....we met a couple in Mexico who had a wedding the next month and we gave them a whole suitcase of stuff....I felt good about it plus we didn't have to pay $50 to fly the suitcase back with us to prob store indefinitely lol.
  2. I had different colors of that helps...I had coral roses with mint calls lilies it should read lol
  3. I have my video posted on my Facebook.....if you request me I'll add so u can see it....Jamie Worona.....it's a nice thing to have as a memory although I'm going to request they send me a new one because they spelled my husband Paul's name as pawl.....lol...I was gonna let it go thinking it was free but then I was like heck I paid for the package so they can send me a corrected dvd lol
  4. I still have to post my review....which is pretty good but also has some issues we went thru. Just want to warn any other brides that intend to pay cash to save from any bank fees....they limit you to 1500 per month in U.S. Dollars at the resort. To pay my wedding balance was 6100 and I had to have 3 family members use their Id to pay with my money because otherwise we wouldn't have been able to pay for anything else at the resort....I ended up canceling the champagne just bc I didn't want it plus they were gonna require a 5th Id for that 100 over and I didn't want to bother anyone else in my party. The front desk (Eric) and wedding coordinator Pamela even said not to tip anyone cuz id exceed my limit....needless to say we tipped everyone and told them we were told not to and our wedding coordinator got nothing sinc that's what she said to do. It was so stressful I was hysterical crying the night before our wedding and they did nothing to make me feel better...in fact they had promised my parents to set up a comped spa day for me and never did. I was always under the impression pay cash to avoid fees and it wasn't told to me until 2 days before the wedding when we were already in Mexico with cash that it would be a problem so that's why I'm letting You girls know. The wedding itself was wonderful....they screwed up the cake wrong flavor and everyone ended up with champagne at the reception anyway (for cocktail hour I had then serve a shot in our wedding colors which was better tasting then champagne lol and it was free)...everything worked out with in the end so those who are booked don't worry....we were in heaven our wedding day however knowing how they handled my situation no one in my party will go back....which is sad bc all the entertainment people, pool people, and bartenders we're wonderful but they literally had me crying 45 min and refused to do anything to make it easier on us....and I'm not a BrideZilla at all....but flipping back and forth between pilar and Pamela got quite annoying when neither would communicate with one another
  5. Thanks for the interest but items are no longer Available....I met a future bride here who didn't have many things yet and her wedding is in a few weeks so we gave them to her.....we agreed it.was going to be much easier then dragging the 2 extra suitcases home lol....plus it.makes me happy to.help.a fellow.bride
  6. Wasn't us lol our trash the Dress is Monday. Ill have hubs take pix Tomm
  7. I am currently at now jade and have at least 50 organza coral sashes here along with 8 aisle hangers 4 starfish and 4 shells.....if you are marrying at now jade I can ask if they will store them for.you but it seems like such a waste for me.to.bring home.. I also have 4_5 real touch rose.bouquets and some burlap.and.metal tin can centerpieces with coveralls....and also a fishnet thing they used on the cake table. When husband gets back.from his boys day I can have him take pics if there's any interest....I hate to waste them but if I am only reselling at this cost to.bring them home it seems pointless
  8. I have pix taken by guests on my Facebook....u can add me Jamie worona and I will accept when I get the chance
  9. Phone ended up in the water day 3 so my communication will be limited unless I get a replacement?...but WiFi is good and free 3 devices a room and you can rotate them
  10. Ok so my wedding isn't until wed but we arrived yesterday and it's been a wonderful experience since walking into the resort...everyone has been super friendly and accommodating. We are in the preferred club and any request we made has been met fast....like a rollaway bed for our son, my daughter requesting certain fruits at all meals (she's 3) and the waiters just get it for her.....had our meeting with pilar today and she was fantastic....I was a mess all until we arrived and it really did just all work out....so cliche I know lol. Even at dinner we said it felt like bugs were out and the waited brought bug gel for our table. Food has been good too....haven't had one complaint yet and there are about 20 here so far....rest of guests arrive tomm. Any info or pics you guys want let me know....the wifi is great so I should be able to reply relatively quick!
  11. Ok fellow brides my wedding is may 6!!!!! Officially less then a week....will be staying may 3-17 who else will be down there? Would love to meet fellow brides who have been a part of my planning on this site! So excited today was my last day at work and I spent the afternoon packing away
  12. Ok so I spoke with Pamela and feel at ease....basically any decisions I still need to make she went over and I have to email her my choices (like apps)...and I have to send all my vendor names they need exact names for the day passes.....also she sent a tentative bill the one thing I am not happy with is the 150 vendor fee for photographers plus their daypass....and I also need to feed them but I'm gonna email asking what they are usually fed cuz maybe I can do a cheaper dinner for them not 53 for my divine menu....I'm sure they don't want a heavy meal inbetween tuning around and taking picks anyway ya know....one less stress on my mind lol
  13. So my wedding is may 6.....pilar called me 2 weeks ago but I missed the call and have been emailing back and forth with still no return call....today I have a message from my new coordinator Pamela....ah! Lol anyone know anything about her? She came off as nice and I'm excited to talk with her tomm bc I never got anywhere with pilar and feel like I just went off posts here rather then deal with the hassle of waiting so long for email replies...I think once I speak with her on the phone I will be calmer but I'm getting nervous we are so close and I have so much not finalized lol Question for any who have been at now jade since they started the unlimited connectivity thing....is the wifi free with this or do you have to pay per device? We are staying preferred but I thought it was only for 1 device....and we have 2 kids who are addicted to their internet so would like them to have access sometimes and not just in the lounge....I tried googling but didn't find anything
  14. Anyone have the laundry service price list? We are going 2 weeks with our 2 kids....trying to figure out if it's cheaper to get laundry done there and pack less or if I really need 2 weeks worth of clothes each plus backups lol....we have to pay for all luggage on our airline and since we r bringing a bunch of wedding crap with us I'd rather not bring 14 pairs shorts for each kid when they all look almost the same lol
  15. Was anyone else late sending the paperwork that should have been sent at the 45 day mark? We totally forgot about it and are at day 34...oops lol. I am getting the information together tho to hopefully send before the weekend...I am stuck on cocktail hour decisions and bridal bouquet.....I thought if be able to choose those when I meet with pilar.....what are some recommendations?
  16. Now jade may 6...we should be each other's wedding crashers lol When is yours? Just realized it says same date but I didn't put may 1
  17. If you split the chair sash ties I would be willing to buy the remaining 35....and also the frames depending on size
  18. Anyone know dimensions for the cake table? Looking to possibly but a sequin table cloth for it...was considering buying one for the sweetheart table too if anyone has those dimensions...can't decide if it would be too much shimmer to have on our table since there will be so many pics taken of us by the table I'm sure....ugh I'm so indecisive lol
  19. Also interested in this...our wedding is a few days after yours!
  20. Can you email me pic of anything coral lovinmylilone@yahoo.com
  21. Does the bamboo room have a plain white wall I could bring my own projector for a slide show?? Could tell from the pics thanks!
  22. Ok thanks maybe I'll look into them cuz we have a new five below here
  23. If it's name brand stuff then quality shouldn't be different then the regular name brand products....I find most dollar stores I go to offer generic which I get Hesitant with sunblock but meds and aloe hell yea it's a good deal. People who are picky are going to bring their own meds to Mexico anyway with worry they won't have what they may want in the gift shop....it's more the thought then use that goes into oot bags...it's to provide for the "oh shit" moments. That's why I'm not doing sunblock but will do SPF Chapstick and aloe...cuz not everyone thinks of those. For meds like pepto, Tums, Imodium I will buy a large bottle and include a note that they are available for any guests who need....first it's cheaper to buy a bulk bottle and second not everyone will need them and the ones that do will prob be sick a day or 2 and need more then a single dose anyway. I'm a nurse and still don't feel comfortable just bagging the doses up in labeled bags so if rather them just know their meds are a phone call away and I can supply them with whatever amount they ask for....our attending guests are more then ok with sharing their diarrhea stories with me so I know they will feel comfortable with letting me know they need meds lol
  24. Silly question probably but why do pashminas make a good gift for Mexico? Does it get that chilly at night? We are a may 6 wedding so I assumed it would be too hot for these? Correct me if I'm wrong cuz they sound like a good thing to add to bm gifts if they'll be used
  25. I am prob just going to buy a bottle of Imodium and pepto....and I'll put a note in the welcome bags that we have a supply for our guests if need be....for hangover kits I will put Advil and a Gatorade packet with a 50ml liquor bottle lol....they will need those the morning after....chances are if I give everyone a few immodium most won't be used and the guests that do need it will prob need more then a dose or 2...seems like a bit of a waste. As for Tim's I considered small packets but again people with heartburn issues are going to come prepared...I know when I travel I pack every type of med we may need bc fiancé has stomach issues and we have 2 kids so I'm always prepared for a cough or fever lol
