My wedding is at the Royal on May 10th, 2010. I noticed there are a couple brides with that wedding date - my reception is at 6pm in the Oceanfront Gazebo. Leaving in 2 months!!

I recently had some trouble getting in touch with anyone in Michigan and finally just said I would hold on the line until Angie could finish what she was doing and talk to me. She let me know that they pulled her out of a meeting with the people from Mexico in order to talk to me. I guess it was the infamous big wig meeting you all mentioned. It worked - she sent me what I needed over the weekend! I am now contacting Zulma directly and hopefully can work with her from here on out.

One question for you girls - I hadn't planned to bring any decorations for the gazebo with me. Does anyone know what comes standard (I have the Luxury package)? I know the white linens and seat covers are included for the reception, but wasn't sure if there were any decorations inside/on the gazebo aside from the flower arrangement. What are other brides doing if there isn't anything included? I don't want to lug too much stuff with me, but I think it looks really pretty in some pictures I've seen with the white fabric hanging down. Can you rent it there?
i'm pretty sure the white fabric is included in the gazebo. the decorations that are included look pretty simple, but it always looks nice in the pictures. personally, i don't plan on bring much - if anything - extra for the ceremony.

I'm not in the gazebo, but on the beach. I am bringing just some pink organza fabric for some chair sashes and for the chuppa. I like the white, but wanted a little bit of color. The Royal wanted $3 per chair sash and I got some fabric at a local fabric store for what would equal to be about 75 cents a chair. For the reception, I am still debating on if I should sneak seashells. (I wanted to do a sandbox type thing) I know it will be my luck and they'll get confiscated!! I might just pay the Royal to do a simple rose petal and candle idea.

i am starting to think that "the big mexico meeting" is another cover up.

 

can some of you ask your WCs about the legal ceremony outline? i need to email my WC again to clarify that we can personalize our legal ceremony. Krisswim said we can't change anything if we have a legal ceremony.

i'm just doing the symbolic ceremony, so i'm sorry that i can't help you out. but i think it would be pretty terrible if you weren't able to customize and personalize your legal ceremony! i would be suuuuuper surprised if you couldn't throw a reading or music or whatever you wanted in there, as long as it doesn't increase the length of the ceremony toooo much! good luck!

Thank you so much for all of the info. Does anyone know if you can exchange things from the different menus? Just wondering, because I'm actually pretty disappointed in the choices for soups and desserts. (We are having a three hour private reception) I'm thinking of cutting out the soup altogether. Also, there was a page labeled garnishing, is it one garnishing or two?

I'm a cake freak but hate to spend the extra money on it if I don't even know how it tastes!! And can anyone tell what kind of icing it is? It all looks like fondant to me. :/ I was hoping for more of a butter cream.
I'm gonna upgrade the cake because it's important to me.

This is exactly what I thought, too. Remember when they said they had a "big meeting" a few weeks ago? I mean, I HOPE they are, but we shall see.

I have the luxury package and Angie told me that the 2 cold canapes are included, but the hot canapes are extra.

Woot, another Texas girl! I've seen white sashes on the gazebo, but I'm not sure if that is a free option or not...hmm, good question.

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
