Hello ladies!! Congrats to those that just got married or are nearing their big day!! YAY!! So yeah, Alux is not cheap and it's a la carte. Thanks for the heads up on food quality. I do like how it was in a cave - so definitely an idea for a pre-party start off point.

 

JoZee - I gave the wrong date but the right day for the concert. It's Thursday, June 16th 2011 not the 15th. It's some type of country music. I can't believe I'm sharing part of the ballroom space with a country music concert!!

 

They don't even know what time it will start. As of now it'll be around 8pm- it keeps changing. I wonder if I can suggest to them to hold off until later since there's a wedding going on!!!

 

Sorry for the venting but it's just downright annoying.

 

Does anyone know if we can have the mexican trio perform during cocktail hour and have the solo person play during dinner at the reception? Trying to use everything in the Luxury package but hoping to be able to rearrange some things around. 

 

Jesmcan - can't wait to see your planning blog!! So glad to hear that everything is working out for you. I just know it'll be beautiful. rolleyes.gif

we put the reception music on shuffle. although there were times we wanted to hear a specific song and just asked him to change the music. the microphone came with the package as well. our wedding wasn't too formal so we started off with a thank u speech and just passed around the mic to whomever wanted to speak. it worked out well for us!

congrats on a fab wedding!

 

thanks!

Ugh I would be frustrated too!!!! I hope it all gets worked out so you get your wedding, and not 1/2 wedding 1/2 country concert!!! At least you know in advance so you have time to work it out. 

 

Yep, you can have the mexican trio and the soloist whenever you want. :) I'm having the mexican trio during the cocktail reception and having the soloist during the ceremony. There was never an issue with that, so you should have no problem! :)

AHHH CRAZY!!!!!! Our days are coming SO SO SO soon! We leave the 6th. I keep watching the weather for our weekend, have you seen any? 

 

Ladies who have already been there, can you help me out? My sister is curious if there is a business center at the Royal. Are there computers with internet set up anywhere for the guests to use? Also, is there any spray tanning locations located near the resorts? 

 

I just got transferred to Lili this weekend so I'm hoping everything is smooth sailing.

 

Any suggestions from anyone on where to move the party to on 5th street after our reception is over (10pm or 11pm)? This is my last week of work! I took Monday and Tuesday off to do all of my appointments and prepare! :)

What's the best way to get in contact with Doranna? I sent her an email thru her website almost a week ago and still haven't heard from her. The woman who was going to do my hair is a very close friend of the family and had to cancel her trip to PDC for the wedding because her brother just passed away and she has to fly to DR and doesn't know when she'll be back. It's very sad to hear I can't even imagine how she feels. Now I'm looking for somone down there to do our hair.

 

Any other suggestions ladies? From my understanding Fernando is expensive and I'll use the Spazul only as a last resort!

 

 

Hi Jenny, 

 

I'm sorry to hear about that! Here is Doranna's email address: info@dorannahairstylist.com. Here is a link to her website. Let her know Raveyn referred you. Hope it all works out!

 

Congrats to all the new Mrs!

Yes, there is a business center near the lobby.  Not huge, prob 3-5 computers.  

 

Everyone has been recommending Blue Parrot, I haven't been there but anyone that I've talked to that's been there recommends it.  I guess they put on a great fire show. 

 

Good luck with everything!  You're date is soooo soon!

Hi Ladies one really good place that does group bookings if you are looking for a dinner or something of that nature of the resort is Di Vino Glass Bar http://www.theglassbar.com.mx

Check out their menu. FI and I have eaten here a lot and the service is amazing. It is only about two blocks away from The Royal.

    • 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?
