ROYAL PLAYA DEL CARMEN BRIDES: were kids allowed for the day? ...and other questions

Recommended Posts


Haha Jess you make me laugh! We're doing some pictures before and some afterwards in case we get a little short on daylight. My wedding is right at 5pm and I was worried about the same thing. I agree with the other comments about the 2-hour cocktail hour. If you have stuff to entertain your guests, and places for them to sit I think it's fine. But if they're just standing around they may get bored. You'll figure it out, you always do. :)

Hey girls! I've been MIA for a few weeks, trying to get everything in order. I notice a lot of talk about the spa. I had some questions too. I'm brining in an outside vendor for my hair/makeup. Do we just get ready in my room? Do they bring everything they need? It's Fernando for those of you who have had/are having him. Also, are any of you booking mani's/pedi's? I'm torn at what to do. My wedding isn't until the 10th but we leave the 6th. I don't think a mani/pedi would hold up that long. Are you ladies booking yours at the spa?


Thanks in advance! :)

I either do the 30 day shred by Jillian Michaels or her online program. The program is about $4 per week and she provides meal plans and workout plans. All of her workouts can be done at home with weights and an exercise ball. The workouts consist of 5 circuits. I love it and it allows me to catch up on my DVR. The website is www.jillianmichaels.com

 

 

 

Does her programs work? I'm curious to try them out. I have done the P90X (not the whole program, I just do the workouts a few times a week) and it is great!!

The PX90, it is amazing. But you really need to be able to devote an hour a day to it. Both FI and I did it and I lost 30 lbs and he looks amazing. I started out with weight watchers and now I just do the things none of us want to do lol. Fruit, veggies, protein only one cup of carbs a day lol. I have to say though I feel great.

 

 

I am having the photographer come during the last hour of getting ready. Not exactly sure how far in the process I will be by the time he arrives. I agree I would do hair first and than make up.
 

 

Since it's triathlon season, I haven't really had to worry so much about the exercise portion, but to lose weight and tone up lifting weights is probably the most important thing you can do, in addition to watching your diet.  I find the high protein, fruits and veggies diet works the best.  It's hard, because I love sandwiches, but you will really see results.  All the lean protein (chicken, fish, turkey) you can eat, as well as all the fruits and veggies you can eat.  No bread, pasta, rice, or potatoes.  I do have a glass of wine here and there during the week (and a couple more on the weekends - lol), and I allow myself a "cheat meal" every 4 days or so.

Totally agree with this advice! But I tend to gain weight when I'm training for a triathlon or marathon! Right now I'm working on muscle building. I only eat 1 carb (oatmeal) 3 days a week, 2 carbs (add sweet potato) 2 days a week and eat 3 carbs (2 servings sweet potato) on days I lift legs. I have focused my training around weight training. I lift weights for an hour 4-5 times per week. I do cardio at night 4-5 times per week. It's a lot of work and I eat 5-6 times per day, with protein at every meal but I've never seen such good results. I thought all my tri/marathon training would get me in shape, but I can honestly say right now I'm 'ripped' and that's a good feeling. Diet is the #1 most important thing in any training program.

Ladies-

 

not sure if someone else posted this, I didn't see it, but I just found out that Rebekah, my WC, is leaving Mexico.  She apparently just came down to get everything sorted out.  I found out by emailing her.  So my new WC is Ana Perez, who has been great so far.

I crack my self up to lol I think going with the first look will just be the best and than we can enjoy and relax lol but who knows in 2 hours I may change my mind lol

 

So yes Fernando comes to the room. He actually will meet the WC at the wedding center and she will bring him up is what I was told.

 

I am actually going to do mani/pedi the day before I leave and I just scheduled a polish change for the day of. So much going on already I don't want to be running late if the mani pedis take to long. All my girls are doing the same thing :) You could always do the mani pedi the day before to? thats another optiion

I love them because I can do them at home. I work crazy hours living in Las Vegas and go to school full time for my MBA so finding time to work out isn't always easy. I don't really follow the meal plans, I try to implement my own quick and easy fixes. When you sign up there is a personal survey you complete that creates your meal plan, how many calories you should eat and the workouts. When I don't have time fix dinner I'll usually do a Lean Cuisine and a piece of fruit. I've lost about 10 lbs. and I haven't been too good on my eating. But the count down is on..... 42 days till I leave for paradise!!!

    • After the wedding, the wedding dress purchased at a high price can be kept in the wardrobe, or it can be sold as a second-hand wedding dress for some cash. If you're in the market to sell your wedding dress or looking to buy a used one, you may be tempted to turn to large online marketplaces like Ebay and Craigslist. While these popular websites are great for listing and buying everyday purchases, a website specifically for used wedding dresses can probably offer you a better deal and a more user-friendly service for this very niche (and important) wedding day purchase.  Tips for Selling Used Wedding Dresses
      Whether you aren't the sentimental type or you're just savvy, selling your used wedding dress is an easy way to recoup some money from your wedding. If your dress is in good condition, consider listing it online over selling it to a thrift store, where your listing will reach a greater volume of potential buyers and can be more easily shared and promoted. A used wedding dress in great condition and under two years old can usually sell for 50 percent of the retail price. And, if your dress is a more recognizable brand like Oscar de la Renta or Vera Wang, you could make closer to 60 percent of its retail value. Even if your gown isn't designer, don't give up hope—since there's a large demand for all kinds of second hand wedding dresses, a designer label doesn't necessarily mean your dress will sell faster. Not to mention, mermaid dresses are also in high demand, so you shouldn't worry if you're not a sample size. Tips for Buying Used Wedding Dresses
      Buying a used wedding dress can be a bit of a gamble, but as long you're cautious, it's a thrifty way to snag a designer wedding dress for half the retail value. Plus, if you get lucky and buy a wedding dress from someone with a similar body type, you may not have to make too many alterations, which also cuts down on your costs. As long as the gown you found looks to be in good condition (if you can't see it in person, make sure photos show it clearly from all angles or ask to Skype with the seller to get a better look), a used wedding gown can be a terrific deal. A few tips: Since your dress will have to be custom-tailored to your body regardless, a larger size is easier to work with where alterations are concerned. Fabric can always be subtracted, but adding more fabric that perfectly matches the rest of the gown can be difficult (not to mention expensive!). And because you're getting the wedding dress for a steal, you can put some of the money you save toward making sure it fits like a glove (and some extra dry-cleaning if necessary).
    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • 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?
