  1. @@Chelseaslove I'm so glad my review was helpful for you. Congratulations on your engagement and upcoming wedding. That is so exciting. You've picked an amazing resort for your wedding. Sorry it's taken me so long to respond. I would suggest getting the package price break downs from @@WPGBride17 or contacting the resort because I'm pretty sure my prices are out of date. I booked in 2015 and I know the packages are different. I picked the free wedding and I don't believe they offer this anymore. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. @@RachelDuncan check out my thread. I did a free wedding (no longer an option I believe) but upgraded everything including my reception at the palapa. I have pictures there and it was so amazing. Everything was so beautiful and went off without a hitch! They are really amazing at the Sirenis. I highly recommend the palapa beach for your ceremony and the private palapa for the reception as no other hotel guests can watch everything and it makes it so much more romantic and special for the two of you.

  3. @wpgbtide17 I got married at the grand Sirenis in February and my theme was also starfish. I brought quite a lot of starfish no problem. We split our decor into different suitcases amongst different people incase someone got checked and stuff taken away. Nothing got taken away from us so you should be okay.

  11. @@nkavanaugh yeah I would send lots of emails and then get all my responses a week later but at least they will answer your questions. As for spa appointments. I booked mine ahead of time but I booked my mom and mother in law when I got there and met with the coordinator. Send your coordinator a message with who wants what services and they will book it all ahead of time for you. We were stressed die the first couple of days too making sure all of our guests were happy but after a couple days we just said no, this is our trip too. People generally are happy once they get there because c'mon, you're in paradise. How could you not be happy haha. As for communications after paperwork I don't remember but that probably because I didn't send a lot of my stuff till late. They should be able to answer any of your questions though prior to getting there Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. @@nkavanaugh my communications slowed down when Aranza was marked as my coordinator as well. But don't stress because once you get there and meet with them everything will go smoothly. Like @@calgarybride2015 said, the room preference sheet isn't looked at. We requested 1 bed for all the single travelers and they all for 2 beds. One couple had to wait at check in for their room to be made up when we arrived and everyone's room but Kyle and I's had either frosted glass or an opening in the wall between the bed and bathroom. Kyle and I had a solid wall. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. @@nkavanaugh I have a pretty detailed list of what I used for my makeup in my review. Make sure you use some form of primer. In the heat and humidity primer is a must. I used smashbox photo finish priming spray, followed by Laura mercier foundation primer, and elizabeth Arden eye primer (urban decays eye primer is just as good), and then for foundation I just used I think it's Maybeline 3 in 1 foundation. I contoured and highlighted. Highlight I used Jaclyn hills champagne pop mixed with pearl from the paler she collaborated on with Becca (shimmering skin perfecter). I also used the blush in that pallet. It's a very shimmery pallet that gives a nice bridal glow. I did my eyebrows, eyeshadow, and used a gel eye line that was waterproof. I used Maybeline collosal mascara in waterproof. Then used Velour silk fluffed up false lashes. Make sure to finish off your makeup with some sort of finishing spray like urban decays all Nighter. It will prolong your makeup. My makeup looked great still when everything was over! Good luck! [emoji1383] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. My mum, sister and mother in law all had their makeup done by the spa. I backed out last minute. I'm like @@JoannaBanana and I watched so many videos and learnt a lot about makeup so I did my own: My mum & sister (done by spa) My mother in law (done by spa) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. @@AlexC I was married here in February and had my hair done at the salon. This is what it looked like. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
