Jesmcan, I saw an earlier post of yours and I am totally getting these:
Sandal World

I'm 5'3 too and FI is 6'6 lol (you won't be able to see shoes under my dress anyway, methinks)
I love Sandal World! So far it is the only place where I have been able to find cool different sandals. Wedge is always awsome for the sand and tall hubbys :)

LOL! Doreen called me today and said that I sent her the longest email she had ever received. I find that a little hard to believe but very funny ;-) We talked through everything and confirmed the outline of our wedding and that I would be locked in at the prices from when I was booked. It's a good thing that we talked because they had NOTHING recorded for me...just may name and date!! I must say that Doreen was very pleasant on the phone so I'll settle down on my ranting for a while.

 

Still, I think that's another point for Team Bride!!

 

Yes!!! k ladies thats 2 Team Bride 0 Royal :)

so are you supossed to book a photgopher, because we have the luxury package and it comes with 24 prints which is not a lot, but I have a friend who wants to take some photos. I keep seeing people talk about who they booked to take photos, if you don't does the resort just have someone??

Hi all!

 

I am joining the Playa del Carmen bride team! I am getting married on May 7th, 2011. We are going to have a group of about 20, and I'm thinking of using a travel agent. Can anyone give me any cons to this, or have you just been happy to have one?

 

Thanks!

 

Nicole

Welcome! Since we're getting married on the same weekend, we should def get together for a drink while we're there!!!
Like I've said before, I think having a TA is great and it's been really reassuring for me. The only downside that I've heard of is that the Royal may offer a few perks to you as the 'group organizer' if you book through them. I don't think that we get these perks when using a TA. Go back a few pages on this thread and I think you'll find the post that references this.

Hi,
I have just been happy to have one and it gives me piece of mind. My TA has been extremely easy, friendly and prompt to deal with. I'm sure she will make the planning process a bit easier for my guests as well. A great perk is the payment plans that people can set up and the small deposit needed to hold your room. With the economy being the way it is, it allows for a more cost effective appraoch for your guests instead of booking online and needed to pay in full upfront. You can always contact one and speak with them to see if their services would work out with your group. So far I have not run into any cons. Hope this helps!

Has anyone been able to reach the wedding planners (Kimberly etc.) here in the USA? I've been sending email for 5 days straight with no reply and just get VM when I call.

Thanks!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
