  1. So cute!!!!! We are not doing welcome bags because it will be too expensive considering the number of people traveling. INstead we will create passport booklets that can also serve as a souvenir for them. We are using the white linens that the hotel is providing. I wanted chargers so badly, however, we are having a buffet, so didn't think we needed them particularly. I agree..it is way better to order than rent them from the resort!! They are ridiculous with the prices! Are you nervous about the sea of people in swimsuits messing up your pics or wedding ceremony vibe? I was worried for a w
  2. I feel you! Will she be in the ceremony with you? Your colors sound really nice!!! I am bringing my own maracas,napkin rings, chair sashes and gifts for my bridesmaids. I was considering travelling with votives, but not sure if it is worth it. What are you bringing? Are you writing your own vows?
  3. Yeah!! You never know..we may all end up hanging out! ha! I am getting nervous now though. My color scheme is blush, white, magenta, and gold. VIntage glam theme. What about you? We are arriving Thursday and we leave for our honeymoon on Labor Day - we will go to Excellence Resort in Playa Mujeres - is your honeymoon going to be at DRC?
  4. Oh wow! That will be kinda cool if we all bump into one another and dressed for the occasion! We are considering getting a bus to take us to the club in Playa Del Carmen (Coco Maya) around 10pm. Looking at our options now. I am bringing my stylist with me and one of my cousins does hair as well.So there will be 2 stylists on deck. I am getting my make-up done by the resort salon. They say the salon is really good and saw some brides finished look - so I am not worried. What about you - who is your glam squad?
  5. Nice!!! What day is your welcome party? Ours is Friday at 8pm. Yes..people are excited about the theme party too! Do you have your outfit? I am debating on wearing an all white jumpsuit I just found or a red boho dress. We are expecting 85 people (including us). It sucks because we were expecting a little more but some couples recently cancelled and lost some of their money. Our ceremony is at the gazebo, cocktail hour is on the beach and reception is on the deck. How about you? Glad you joined the groups...you will be so relieved once you see what is out there and how helpful everyone i
  6. Ha! That is crazy! Set up a call with Claudia so everything is transitioned to her and you establish a rapport. I am getting closer to finalizing things. I am having a welcome party but want to change the location. It was originally planned for the deck, but now that they let me switch my reception to the deck, I want to change welcome party place - don't want people to get bored. LOL. We are calling our Welcome Party the All White Fiesta. I'm not sure if the document can be converted. Do you have publisher at work? How many people are you expecting? Are you planning a rehearsal dinner?
  7. @@danni Sorry I have not been on this forum for awhile! I've been on FB tracking things every minute...LOL. @@racht33 is correct. I just had my 2nd conference call with Natalia yesterday. She has been responsive this way and has replied to emails. So far I am pleased. Just figuring out my floral designs now. I think you should join the FB forum - it will be helpful to you!
  8. @@danni welcome to the forum! I am getting married on 9/6/15 at DRC! Where are you getting married?! A bunch of us are on this site, on Facebook too (Cancun Brides private forum and Cancun Brides and Riviera Maya Brides private forum). Are you having issues downloading the pictures on this site?

I may do all white and add the pops of color to the bridesmaid bouquets and corsages for the moms. Oh..thanks for sharing your makeup experience!! I locked in the makeup artist's name you used!

So...David's older sister is wearing this watters gown (first pic- dress on the right-same color too) and the rest of my girls are wearing Amsale. (2nd pic) color scheme is blush.

  12. @@smileitseb Hi Lady!! Do you happen to have the template you used for your welcome booklet? Instead of creating welcome bags, we agreed to do a video welcoming the guests and spend dollars on the party accoutrements. hehe. Also, how did you get everyone's pics? Did you ask them to submit or did grab from FB, etc. Has reality set in yet? You're married!!! You were gorgeous too! @@smileitseb Oh. were your bridesmaids gowns Amsale by chance?
