  Hi Ladies,

  I just got back last Saturday from my wedding/honeymoon (wedding was Feb 21st) thought I share a few things with you :)   The resort grounds are beautiful, perfect place for a wedding! I got married in the gazebo at 4pm and had cocktail hour and reception on the Himitsu terrace untill 11pm. I also had flowers from the resort which were beautiful as well!     gazebo.jpg     Flowers.jpg     The resort was 110% full on the week of our wedding, they tried to “upgrade†9 of our 30 guest to the Hard Rock… As well, the rooms are SMALL! We had a swim out room, we wanted to upgrade to a Honeymoon suite as we werenâ€t happy with our room, we were even willing to pay whatever price, but they said they had no rooms at all!  The swim out turned out to be fun, but it was a lot smaller than any other all inclusive resort rooms Iâ€ve been in.   The beach is awesome here!! Trying to find a chair or a towel after 9am was pretty much impossible which was probably due the resort being 110% book. This is where our swim out room came in handy :)   Beach.jpg   Our photographer was Michael Weiler with Caribbean Emotions, he was amazing, and such a good price. We also had 36 printed photos of the ceremony with the resort photographer they wanted 180$ for 36 images on CD, (and that they said was half price!!!)   I wasnâ€t planning on doing a TTD but a week after the wedding, my Mom talked me into it! I called up Michael and he was able to do one with us!! It was amazing, he took us off resort to a beautiful beach and the pictures turned out amazing!    TTD1.jpg   TTD2.jpg     Let me know if you ladies have any questions :)

Sherri yours pictures look awesome and your Mugs look super familiar.. I saw you on one of the days you were there, I think maybe the friday, your group was sitting behind my group at the pool.  I was down there from the 13th-20th and got married on the 17th (the one day it rained all evening : ( .)

 

I hear you about the towels it was next to impossible some days to get a towel.

Hi Sherri,  your pictures are amazing, you look beautiful!  I was wondering if you have any pictures of your reception.  Our wedding is scheduled for May 21st at 4:30 with our dinner and cocktail hour on the Himitsu Terrace.  It also looks like we're expecting around the same number of guests you had, so I'm just curious to see what the set up looks like.  Also, how do they do the cocktail hour?  Is everything in the same space as the dinner, or do they do the cocktail hour on one part of the terrace and the dinner on another part?

 

Thanks!!

Yes, they are all booking on their own, we are just keeping on top of vacation packages that we find and inform the ones who haven't booked yet.

 

As for the 6th room free, not sure what that is. I get a free upgrade with my wedding package..... Can you tell me more abut the 6th room free?

Thanks

 Kwaller82 - I do have some pics of the reception but I don't know how well they show the set up. Let me know your email address and I'll send you some. Cocktail hour was in the same area as the dinner, people were just kinda standing around when I got there after cocktail hour was done.

Hi has anyone on here had a catholic ceremony?

if so can you pm me I have some questions.

 

- is there a rule that the groom has to walk up the aisle right before the bride walks up coz we saw our priest here in canada and he told me that

  this is what the catholic church has to do.  apparently the groom cannot stand at the alter like we've always seen before, he has to walk up with 

  his parents right before the brides walk???? this really threw me off.....lol

- also did you do a first reading, responsorial psalm and a second reading, and lastly a "lord hear our pray"??

- did you play a song while he was getting the bread and wine ready? and did you play a song while he was giving out communion? where u allowed  to play a songs i mean??

- then lastly we want to say our own vows but also we would like to repeat the traditional vows after the priest and then play our recessional song in the 

end

-also did you have to sign the register while the priest was there?? and what about the uniting of the candles or combining the sand when or did you do this........

 

sorry lots of questions for you catholic brides but i would love some help with this as Im very organized and I dont want any surprises the day off

coz apparently there is no rehearsal and the first time i see the preist will be when i walk up the aisle??????

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
