Yes, I think someone wrote last week or so that you can have your own vows and sand ceremony for symbolic.

I know a few were inquiring about this for programs in the legal/civil ceremony, so I will paste in case you cant open attachment:
Thanks so much! this was a huge help! it seems like it is going to go so fast though doesn't it?

And I have in writing from Zulma that we could do a sand ceremony with a legal civil wedding as long as we don't have our own vows uggghhh. Making sure to bring that one down.

i'm so glad to hear that angie has been responsive! i e-mailed her a list of questions just a while ago, so i'm hoping to hear back from her super soon!

 

thanks for the advice on the flowers. i'm hoping for calla lilies but have another bouquet picked out in case they're not an option. i'll be satisfied as long as i can have orange and yellow flowers, so i know i'll be just fine.

Yeah lol, it seems about 5 min long (but I guess it would feel that way regardless heh)

BTW, I'm getting married in November now (day before Thanksgiving); after almost changing resorts, and going over pricing, we decided to stay. November was almost HALF the accomodations/flight cost of January, and although my original date of Jan 1 would have been cool, we decided this would make it possible for some of our guests who were on the fence. I'm also very glad that response from WC has improved 200 % :-).

I was *promised* a phone call by yesterday and never got it. It's not worth the energy stressing over this. I've sent the Michigan ladies 5 emails, repetative emails at that, and I haven't gotten a dang thing back. I even emailed the people in Mexico, and after they seemed to be helpful a few weeks ago, I got nothing. frown.gif

Seriously, I am almost at the point where I just want to say screw the WHOLE wedding idea, let me just enjoy my non-refundable plane ticket trip to Mexico (and tons of margaritas at that!) and I'll try to look into something else NEXT year. I just feel bad for those guests that have booked a trip expecting to see a wedding when I'm so not into it anymore.
Ok, after like 3-4 weeks into this destination wedding search. I realized that it is "normal" to not to receive an email for weeks or months. The WC in mexico are working for $10 per day, and they are also working on site weddings (up to 3-6 per day sometimes). Unlike private wedding planners in Canada or US, like 2 weddings on the w-e MAX, these WCs are having like 10 weddings per week! As your date approaches, they will work with u more closely. I dunno what is going on with the Michigan chicks...but I guess they still have to coordinate with the Mexico WCs most of the time. However, from all the reviews I read, the on-site WC will make sure everything goes smoothly once u get there. Therefore, I think I will book my package, secure the date, and plan on other things.

Hey ladies! i need your help please. Ive got a few questions:

I have read that a number of you have opted to do a cheaper wedding package like the classic or the eternal romance then just added on from there. I am highly considering this also b/c when i look at the luxury package it has alot of things we really dont need. So the a la carte list I have is pretty basic. Can any of you PM me with a complete a la carte wedding list with all the fees?

 

For example, if we decide to go with the eternal package it incl. a semi private reception for up to 30 guests, if we upgrade to a private reception it is an additional $25 per real guest for all 30 people or just guests beyond the 30?

 

Also, we are doing a symbolic ceremony, will they allow my FI's brother who is licensed in the states to marry, to lead the ceremony and waive there fee for the minister??

 

And i know several of you have asked this but I just want to clarify, our ceremony is on a Sat. at 2 p.m. will the weekend fee be waived even if our reception is from 4-7 p.m. Is that fee only charged if the "ceremony" is after 4p.m.?

 

One last question I promise :) I am not having a good time deciding on a photog. If I had an endless budget, it would be so easy. I will be charged $400 outside vendor fee so with this is mind, most that I have found put me over what I can spend. I am not a huge fan of the resort photog so I would like to use someone in addition for at least the ceremony and pics after. The one I have found charges $1500 plus that fee so now we are close to 2K which is really pushing it. Does anyone have some suggestions of good photogs that are around 1,000 or less that you really like??

 

Thank you all for your help!!

Hi Taapple

I will PM you with the checklist that comes straight from the WC's at the resort. You can see how much everything is and go from there. I am one of the brides doing a Classic wedding and upgrading quite a bit (still cheaper for me!)

 

That is a good question about upgrading to a private reception. The semi-private is $15/guest and private is 25/guest so Im not sure if it would just be an extra 10/guest to upgrade. Then every guest after 30 would be the full price I imagine.

 

Don't know about the minister fee, Im guessing you can since it is added on extra for everybody

 

You would be fine with a 2pm ceremony, no extra fee

 

I am using Mike Cantarell for photog. I was able to tell him my budget and he worked with me very well!! I am very happy with what I am getting. They are very willing to work with you

 

Hope this helps! Sorry I couldn't help with some of those!

$10 a dayhuh.gif That is not possible! I would think they're paid more than that...they deal with so many weddings a day.

Good luck picking your package! :)

    • 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!
