  1. I brought 53 guests to the grand sirenis for my wedding and things were a disaster from start to finish. You would think with a group of 53 people spending thousands and thousands of dollars on a wedding - we would have an above average experience, maybe even average. My whole group's experience and ours (my now husband and I) was waaaaayy below average. Our departure transfer were wrong, many people were charged twice at checkout for things, food was terrible, we were stalked to go to time share meetings, drinks were watered down, shuttles took 35 minutes when they said "5 more minutes", et

  4. Hi guys! Its been a while - but I promise, I have been getting so much on my list done! October 15th was the date for final deposits and we have 53 guests booked and confirmed! Wahhooo. We might even get a few last minute stragglers. @@vancouverpetunia - the resort did tell me that I am not allowed to use rose petals that are fake for the aisle .. SO, I am going with just a white runner. I did buy 5000 rose petals though, eeeek. BUT thankfully I am able to use them in the reception, so I can add them to my centerpiece idea. RECEPTION DECOR: Reception decor has been a struggle.
  5. Hey girl! Don't worry, I am living in a full stress zone too. Even getting hives from all the planning. Our finally payments were due today, and we now have 58 guest - holy hell. We though maybe 50, but the number keeps climbing. I have really been debating lately a videographer. It is so expensive, and the prices I'm getting are all in USD - which you ladies know is not great for us Canadians. What do you guys think of videography? In the grand scheme I would love to have those memories captured and edited. But I would also love to have an extra $2000 for our honeymoon, etc.
  6. I wanted to show you a bit of my inspiration and I have finally narrowed down a color scheme/palette. My Colour Scheme: BLUSH, CHAMPAGNE, IVORY, with hints of BURGUNDY. Similar to this: CEREMONY: Chairs - White Tiffany (60 of them, approx.) will have final numbers in October. (45 pesos each) - shown below. Chair Covers - will bring with me, 60 chiffon sashes as shown below. *will need to be set up on tiffany chairs ** JUST ordered from aliexpress.com - $275 for 60 chiffon sashes. Will let you know how they turn out!
  7. @@calgarybride2015 - I keep saying archway, but I think it is just the "arch".. I had a vision of a different one. They quoted me about $800 CAD, I think we are going to go with it!! Comes with flowers along the top and sides, etc.
  8. My date is January 7th, 2016 .. So it's coming!! I just got a quote from Adriana - 45 pesos for each chair (white Tiffany chair) and then 75 pesos each chair if I want the gold ones PLUS external fee. She also quoted me for some archways - quotes were over 10,000 pesos. Things are getting crazy.
  9. Just finding this thread now.. I have to say that $1250 per person quote is INSANE! My guests and I paid $1700 per person from Toronto. Holy hell. We felt pressure with the American dollar so we just went with it. Now we have 53 guests and counting . We are hoping not to have more than 60. I went a little crazy with my dress ($4000 CAD) and our rings, so I don't want to get wild spending on the wedding. We are bringing our own photographer (flying him down and paying all expenses) in exchange for wedding photos. Pretty awesome deal!! $1700 CAD for his trip and we get unlimited photos
  10. Hi guys! So they only have white Tiffany chairs at the resort - not champagne or gold. Adriana is looking into seeing if they can get them from external vendors... So we shall see. The archway I wanted is being quoted at about $800 CAD so I am not sure what I will decide on that yet. Does anyone have an extras price list ? They haven't sent me all that info yet because I guess t isn't close enough. I have less than 5 months, so I really need to start working out a budget and making some decisions! I think I am going to go with the free wedding and then upgrade - but I don't
  11. Hi guys .. I need some advice! I am in LOVE with these tiffany chair decorations. https://img0.etsystatic.com/030/0/8818542/il_340x270.625672610_gmq7.jpg I have no idea though if they can be recreated to look like that. I am assuming that chiffon is ivory, not white - which I think looks better than a stark white. Have any of you seen any brides with this sort of chair design or DIY? Please let me know!!
  12. @@yycbride2016 thanks for all the information! I wonder if AC Vacations will have anything like that as far as credits and such. UPDATES: BRIDESMAIDS ROBES: I finally got some things done today! I searched high and low for bridesmaid robes - etsy, amazon, everywhere. I finally settled on some robes on amazon.com - I found them to be much cheaper than the ones on etsy, and am just going to get them monogrammed locally! Here is the link: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00KC7TIN6?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00 They came to $17 per robe USD, which is
  13. Hi Ladies! Just got a confirmation - we have 36 guests as of today .. still a few family members from out of town to book (later one). We estimated about 50 guests, so I am right on track and budget. My fiance has a best girlfriend (childhood neighbour) in our wedding party and she just got a job and may not be able to make it. I had paired her with my gay best friend, standing on my side for the wedding. SO .. now we may be in a bit of a predicament. What is the protocol on him asking another person at this point? ALSO . for the dance, now we will have two dudes dancing, and walking
