Happy wedding day Meredith!! I hope the sun is shining brightly on your day.

 

*I emailed Carlos yesterday when that thread posted and he is NOT honoring the 30% off discount for me which I am bummed about. He told me that it was for those booking in April only. I guess you got lucky.. sad.gif Maybe it's becuase your wedding is in April??

 

I am really trying not to stress but honestly I feel like everything is happening really fast and I want to physically MEET with perla to make myself feel better about the whole money thing.

 

On another note. TGIF

Hi Yamille - I pm'd you about the 30% off promotion

 

Ive been booked with Carlos for a month and half or so, Im wondering if its just for weddings in April? If I get any more information I will post it

 

I know what you mean I just want to sit down with Perla and get everything sorted out, I hate not knowing and I dont want to be ambushed when we get down there with all sorts of fees. Things are happening very fast and Im hoping the situation with Sandra is sorted out fairly and it might resolve things for us future brides.

Lauren,

 

Missy R used Swank and loved them (and she'll be back up on the site w/in the next two weeks, so you can ask her in detail).

 

Fanny and Freckles, I can't find the receipt that has the steaming sad.gif. I swear I think it was less than $20, but I'll email Perla and ask her for a copy of our bill that has it and let you know for sure. Just a tip, I had the dress steamed 2 or 3 days before the wedding for minimal stress, and had my MOHkeep it in her room (the butler had actually returned the dress to our room and had left it out, so it wouldn't wrinkle- which was nice except my hubby almost walked in and saw it! I sent him away before he walked in and moved the dress to my MOH's room!).

I don't think that you are making a msitake at all using SWANK.. I booked with Carlos because it would be less expensive than SWANK and people were giving him rave reviews. In the end it's becoming a little bit of a headache though....

Happy Belated Wedding Day Meredith!! I hope everything was fabulous!!

 

Perla emailed me back on the whole DJ thing and sent me SWANK's external vendor sheet that I already had. It just sucks because if I knew I'd have to pay 15% of the original quote I would have:

 

1. Never got a quote from him

2. Not asked for a quote until I got other quotes and asked him what he would do to "match"

 

Hopefully Sandra will come back with some answers....

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
