  1. Hi @@GoddessRocio, My wedding was wonderful! There were a few things that didn’t go as planned but they were very minor. There is a Facebook group for Hyatt Ziva/Zilara brides that you can join. There are a lot of past and future brides on there. My long review of my day is on there but let me know if you can’t get in the group or if you have other questions, I’m happt to help!

    I messaged her through FB but her email address is donnadalley58@@gmail.com. Just an FYI though, the bride that used her doesn't recommend her after her experience.

    I would reach out to Julianne since you haven't heard from her yet. But as far as I know, there's no way around the fee. You could see if they would be willing to waive it since you're looking for something that they don't offer. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Yup! As long as they are a guest of the resort then the vendor fee is waived

    I don't think they'll waive it unless they will be staying at the resort. Is your Dj staying at the resort? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Trish T is amazing! I booked her originally but then she had to cancel since Jamaican carnival is on the same day and she typically is contracted to do that so that was a bummer! I'm using Rasine Hamilton $80 traditional bride, $95 airbrush, $50 bridesmaids/mother of the bride and a $100 travel fee. I thought about sue the makeup girl too but she was over my budget since I'm paying for my girls but she's awesome too!

    @@Harrisc15 My coordinator was assigned to me after my preview but she was the same person who I met with during the preview so it was great that I had already met her in person. I'm way too worried about shipping anything ahead of time so I'm bringing everything and dispersing it among my MOH and family. We are flying southwest which allows 2 free checked bags so that is a huge help! My dress will be coming with me onto the plane as my carry on because I am terrified of losing it. I'm also doing a buffet so that there's more to choose from. The ballroom terrace is $5,000 to reserve ahead of time because its technically not a wedding space, they use it as an overflow for one of the ballrooms. So as long as the ballroom isn't booked 45 days prior to the wedding then you can reserve it for free. So far it's not booked so fingers are crossed that it stays that way. There's a beautiful view from the terrace and its close to bathrooms and A/C when needed lol!

    @@Harrisc15 that's great! You'll be able to see my entire set up and if you have questions while your there let me know. My mom actually ordered single flowers and made the bouquets herself I'll ask her where she ordered from. My hairstylist is coming so I won't be using them for hair services and I hired a make-up artist. I did have a trial during my preview and I did not like how my make-up looked so I decided not to use them. A previous bride I spoke with used them and didn't really have any issues so definitely do the trial while you are there so you can plan ahead. I do plan on using them for a pedicure and I haven't decided what to do with my nails yet so I'm not sure if I'll use them or get my nails done at home. My coordinator is Julienne. I did have an issue with her early on but that has since been resolved and she has been pretty helpful. Have you been assigned to one yet?

    Hi, Congrats! You'll be at the resort during my wedding weekend! I'm getting married on April 23rd! I'm having 70 guests, my ceremony will be at the sky lounge, cocktails on the east lawn and reception on the decks. If the ballroom terrace is available 45 days before my wedding then I'll be switching my reception to that location and the decks will be used for cocktails. As far as costs for extras, they will send you a catalogue and you pretty much just ask for prices of things you want. They were pretty pricey so I'm brining my own centerpieces, chair ties, doing silk flowers for my 7 bridesmaids and brining my own napkins and sweetheart tablecloth. Just to give you an example, the cost for colored napkins is $7 per napkin. I'll attach a photo of the decks set up because I had the same concern about spacing but I think it will be fine if you have the dancing area in front of the DJ booth. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk I just saw your other questions lol!You don't have to pay a vendor fee if they will be staying at the resort. The Dj cost is crazy and don't forget to ask your coordinator about lighting if you're doing an evening wedding outside, they charge for that as well. If you use an outside DJ ask them about lighting because it may be cheaper to do that with them. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. It's almost time! Good luck finishing up any little things and with packing! It's going to be beautiful! Can't wait to see pics when you get back! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. So sorry to hear about the passport! But I'm glad it will be set before you leave. I love the tumblers and the cape for your flower girl! Have fun at your bachelorette party! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Hi! There's a Facebook group for hyatt ziva brides, you should definitely join. I'm not using the resort florist because their prices are ridiculous! I am making the standard bouquet that comes with the package a little larger and paying $40 for that. I'm probably going to use silk flowers for my bridesmaids. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    @@Bride2Be2017 so I asked the other bride and she said she did use the resorts makeup artist but she ended up taking over in certain areas. She said she had to do that because she actually has training in make up artistry and in speaking with the makeup artist at the resort she saw that she wasn't really professionally trained and didn't use some products that the bride would have wanted. She said that the make up was okay but since she is particular about makeup due to her training she had to add some more and fix some aspects. She also suggests that you bring a setting spray and primer because they did not have any at the spa. Hope this helps!

    @@Bride2Be2017 I spoke with the other bride and she is unsure of which room her reception was in but she said it was right in front of the ballroom terrace if that helps! She had about 60 guests.
