  1. Woops! I guess I'll have to post the images after work. I am not that blog savvy. This site is helping me a lot. I'm hoping my thread gains steam and I can get really good input. The bus ride is something I think is necessary. Because we're so far and travelling in November , I want to make sure everyone sticks together. This way if something happens to one it happens to all. Because we're so far, we would he looking at parking and more hotel rooms so we think this is best. So I have some beef with my hotel... they only let me speak to the coordinator thru my travel agent. Thi
  2. Our Bridal Party. So we had picked a HUGE bridal party of 7 back last summer. Actually he picked 7 I picked 6. WHAT A HEADACHE Since we went from destination to home and back to destination, I've managed to shed off some of my party. We are currently down to 3 people each. In this spirit, I want to share how I "proposed" to my girls even though I'm planning to re propose shortly. Boy, did I ever have fun making these! I started off by getting pink and blue boxes. My colours have been blue and pink this whole time! The shade is all that keeps changing. I picked up the boxes

  4. I'm glad I'm not the only one going this route! My mom said that if anybody is offended and doesn't want to come then that is on them. We are choosing a destination because it suits our personalities and our budget. She's not really into the whole "wedding etiquette" and she will deal with disgruntled family members who cannot attend. We never said people COULDN'T come, we just left it as an open ended invitation. My current dilemma is finding a bus that I can charter to pick us up and drive us between home and the airport. I figure I would like to coordinate people together if at all poss
  5. April 24th 2016 So It's been a bit since I've updated but a lot has happened. Our April 15th Deadline for Deposits Passed... We have 25 CONFIRMED guests. I cannot even believe it! 25 of 30 seats and the other 5 are accounted for! I am so excited I could squeal. Basically we cut down the 90 day deadline to 45 days and we seen better results this way. I may even reserve an additional 30 seats just in case. Our group rate expires at the beginning of June. Right now I've put the wedding plans on the back burner because we are just under 2 months from closing on our house. The big stuff is c
  6. Yes! We completely cancelled the vendors we'd already booked !!!! We had a hall, church, dj and decorator. Everyone was very understanding and we received most of our deposit money back ! I'm looking forward to updating as we are getting closer to our deposit date !! Our group should be confirmed by April 15th. Right now I'm in limbo until we get an idea of how many will be joining us !
  7. Oh... Where do I start? Our story is long, and hectic. I'm very excited to share our journey with you. I have been lurking Best Destination Wedding for some time and now I'm here to have my voice. Chuck and I met in 2012. We met at a bar through mutual friends. It didn't take long for me to know he was the one. We started dating the day after valentines days, February 15th 2013. The number 15 is my new lucky number. Chuck and I have been through our fair share of rough patches. We've been through moves and job changes and the only thing that changes is the strength of our love for each

  9. We Ultimately went with the Melia Varadero for many reasons. We have heard nothing but amazing things and we upgraded our room the The Grande Suite on The Level! This will give us that honeymoon feel on a good budget. I also chose the Melia because this way everyone is in one building! We are ecstatic about our choice and cannot wait !
  10. Hi Ladies !!! I am currently stuck between Melia Varadero and The Royalton Hicacos. I've been to Memories Varadero, Barcelo Solymar and Memories Paraiso Azul in Cayo Santa Maria. Unfortunately none of those are what I am seeking in a wedding resort. I originally was getting married in Mexico, then started planning at home and voila here I am! Following this thread !
  11. Hello!!! Just wanted to let you know I am planning my wedding at the GSP for May 15th 2017 and your threads are very informative! Thank you for all the time you have put into this !!!
