  1. Wedding was a success!!!! It was a beautiful day and was over in the blink of an eye!!! While there were a few bumps along the way, I wouldn't have it any other way. This resort is beautiful! Even with all the construction going on. Sadly I did not get to have my ceremony on the beach, and it was frustrating. The weather was rain rain rain the first 4 days we were there. The day of the wedding was the first day of sun. But apparently the tide was too high and the ground was too soft to have the wedding on the beach. They moved me inside to the "its raining" venue LOL. It was still beautiful, but disappointed that we couldnt have it on the beach. My wedding coordinator was Pamela and if im honest i really did not like her services. She was not helpful! EVER!!! she was negative with all things and made the whole wedding planning experience a complete nightmare. I can not explain how stressed out i was the 2 months leading up to our wedding day. Even when we got there everything was no we cant do that, no we cant do this, no i wont budge here, no i wont help you there.....The day of the wedding she was rude when it came to having to move the venue and when it came to making the payment for the wedding she had a lot of attitude towards my mom when she asked about conversions. "That's not my job to figure out- you should have had all that sorted out" excuse me?! besides that the day was amazing!!!
  2. PAST BRIDES!!!! I don't know if its just me or my wedding planner but this has got to be the most frustrating experience of my life!!! Where are all these added costs coming from!! UGH! My biggest problem I am having is that I am getting the Devine wedding package. The cake options that they offer is not the actual cake you get?? The package is for up to 25 people and I have 45 people coming. They told me that the cake i get is only ONE TIER?? Not what is actually shown.... if I want to pay for the extra 20 people then I would get a cake with two tiers but still not the cake shown.... Is this right? Or are they just being difficult with me?!
  3. HEY! So i purchased my dress off the rack and it is FILTHY!!!! It needs to be dry cleaned, but i'm afraid it will cost more then the dress itself! Can any Calgary ladies recommend a place for dry cleaning that is decent priced and really good? Thanks!!!
  4. Awe this is so perfect!!!! I love your review! It makes me so excited!! So much congrats to you and hubby! How much did you have to pay for outside photographers? Is it just the day pass? or is there a vender fee?
  5. I already took my dress in. I had them put sweetheart neckline in, a corset back and sew in my slip with the crinoline. It didnt need to be hemmed or taken in at all. I wanted to make sure that main part was done, and then if it needed any further alterations he would do it at no charge. Im not certain if it will need to be taken in, but we will have to wait and see
  6. Not yet! July 18th I will go in to make sure everything is perfect. I also am trying to lose a chunk of weight, but I wanted to get most stuff done. He said that if the dress had to be taken in some more or any other things needed to be fixed/altered he wouldn't change me anything. So that is a bonus! I will keep you posted!
  7. @@rachelia160 you looked absolutely stunning! So beautiful!! I can't wait to read your review!! Congrats girl!
  8. I FOUND IT!!!! Totally got lost!! LOL... These threads are hard to keep track of, but I found my way back! @@calgarybride2015 i am so very sorry for leaving you high and dry about the shells! How could I have forgotten! Still have anything available?! I also wanted to let brides know that I found an alterations place called "Chinook Alterations" that is SO CHEAP!!! Originally I was going to have David's Bridal do all the alterations on my dress, but it was going to cost over 500$ and my dress was only 699$ so I was like HECK NO! A friend of mine who just got married Sunday in Vegas told me about this little Italian guy who owned this shop and he is magical! Says he does wonderful work and can fix anything! So I dropped my dress of there.... I am having the zipper taken out of my dress and a lace-up back put in (so he is adding fabric so my skin doesnt show through the ties) he is putting a sweetheart neckline in....a bussle (sp) hemming, taking in the dress and fixing any beading that needs it.... grande total for the cost of the alteration....185$ SERIOUSLY! He is the cutest little man and I highly recommend him!
  9. Love the pictures too!! So cute! That actually makes me feel a lot better! Thanks a million! Yes I am getting married at the now jade. Boy is it pricy! I cant wait to see your pictures. I may need to steal ideas hahaha
  10. We got ours at Le Chateau as well Tried posting a pic, but there is no attachment option
  11. I am so glad some one posted about this!! Congrats on your legal marriage! How exciting. So I have a JP coming to our house and I had planned it just to be our parents and siblings.... somehow, it has turned it to a second wedding (but a first cause it will be before the DW) After letting our Mothers in on our plans, we are now having an backyard wedding and a whole bunch of people over.... aunts/uncles/cousins/grandparents etc.... then a huge BBQ after for everyone who cant make mexico.... two things- if people going to Mexico catch wind do you think they will be angry about it? and will this legal ceremony take away from my DW... My head is all jumbled... i feel like if we do this then what is the point of the DW?! Maybe I should wait until after Mexico to make things legal?!
  12. Hey Ladies, So I got an email from Pamela over the weekend. I had emailed her last week asking her if I could make some adjustments on my wedding. I asked if I could use my bouquet for my cake flowers instead as I wasn't needing it. she said No, that anything that comes in the package can not be used towards anything other than what its for... This frustrates me beyond belief! I also asked that I don't have extras at the cocktail party, extra cake for guests or extra champaign. Just to save on some costs and such. She basically told me I couldn't cancel the extras and that if I wanted to cancel some the whole service would have to be cancelled. Eg. champaign for 25 comes with the package and I have about 80 guests. But really not everyone drinks it and will likely have their own drinks anyways. She said it was impossible to do champaign for 80 people anyways so she's cancelling the service all together.....that means none for the 25 people as well... what the heck?!?! When Ariadna was my coordinator she never said that... infact the contract she sent me had the extra costs for all my guests to have a glass of champaign. I am sure I have read on here that some brides used the flowers from their bouquet as the cake flowers... am I just making things up LOL.... UGH I'm so incredibly mad right now!!!
  13. I know!! When i got engaged I wanted to get married earlier, but thought nah ill give it 1 year just so we can have some time to save. Well my wedding is 5 months away and I havent saved anything! hahaha. I have to get my butt in gear! I am getting married at the Now Jade! I cant wait!
  14. Absolutely gorgeous! Clip in's it is!
  15. Beautiful pictures @@tracyannhoward!! I so cant wait!!!! I always said that a photographer is where I am going to spend most of my money when it comes to my wedding, cause I will have those to look back on. My fiancé's cousin is just starting up photography and she said she would do our pictures. But part of me is a little nervous.... and now she is pregnant and doesn't now if she can make the wedding, as she is due the month before we go. So now I am not sure what I am going to do. Was the cost fairly decent priced?
  16. I will be getting married October 20th in Riviera Maya too!!
  17. Can anyone send me pictures of their wedding that the onsite photographer took? Im curious of the quality.
  18. So I am having a really hard time deciding about hair extensions. I know that I want them, but I don't know if I should get clip in's or sewn in ones? Anyone have any advice for me?
  19. Awesome!! Thanks for all the feed back!! What a great idea to use flowers that come in the package they you arent using. I am making all my flowers and boutonnieres, because i am worried they wont match mine and my grooms. So I will have a few options
  20. Hello Ladies! So I thought I would email Ariadna about some wedding stuff, and I got a response back from a Pamela?! What happened to my wedding planner!?! Also I had some questions on Cakes... the ones the show, do we get to choose what colours we want? Does anyone have any pictures of their cake they can send me?
  21. Would you be able to send them to me as well? I'm getting married in October so chances of rain are fairly high. Thanks!!! Bri.barber88@@gmail.com
  22. I made my own... I did Luggage tags for save the dates and boarding pass for invitation.... I used Microsoft word and then clipped images i found off google images or clip art etc. I think you could do passports for the invites and boarding passes for dave the dates? or luggage tags??
  23. UGH! Me too!!!! I just bought my dress on Saturday and i was in the store for 2 hours... tried on sooo many dresses and had 6 people with me... all of them loved the dress i picked, even my mom and mother in-law cried.... I wasn't sold on it. I hated every dress i put on!! So i just thought, its probably not the dress but the body in it! It wasn't all that flattering but I know when it comes time for the wedding It will look way better. I look at myself in the pictures taken and the model on the website and it is not a dress i would pick in a million years, yet the dress i ended up with because everyone said "thats the one" Im hoping I change my mind about it... maybe i will go into the store and try it on again in month or so. Supposed to take 18 weeks to come in. Wonder if they will let me exchange it? ugh I don't even know haha
  24. Sweet! Thanks! That helps! I was going to set aside envelopes and have my MO give them out at the end of the night or when ever we would last see them.... I was thinking 100$ (american) each but wasnt sure if that was way too much or not enough LOL. I never know how much to tip...
  25. 143 guests that i invited yes but not confirmed.... out of those 143 im looking at about 75-85 for sures... im not worried about the rest. Makes perfect sense!!
