I leave exactly 2 weeks from today!  I'm SO ready....all im waiting for is my chair sashes and my place cards for the guests (which I'm going to attach to maracas).  DO NOT order anything from Diva Girl Designs.  I ordered Sashes from them about 6 weeks ago (picked them because of this color I really wanted and couldn't find).  She kept saying 2 more weeks, 2 more weeks...and barely even a sorry!  If you don't have the product just say so!  Supposedly I'm getting them by Friday.

 

Ugh crappy! If they fall through on you, i used these folks: https://www.weddingslinen.com/index.php . Placed two separate orders with them and had sashes and table overlays within a week.

I was really, really wanting tres leches cake :-( ..she couldnt explain why (she said she wasnt sure how to translate). Sigh. Did you get an upgraded cake? How did you choose the caramel and coffee filling (sounds delish!)

 

Does anyone else have the luxury package? We paid (for non-real guests) an additional 80 pp for reception, 20 pp for cocktail and 20 pp for cake/champagne toast? Is that last charge right? I see a charge of 10 pp in the previous package, but nothing about 20 pp in luxury for champ/cake. Weird.  (and 10pp for hot canapes) So 130.00 pp for non real ...yikes ....4 so far

Thanks Lisa!!  I will save the website just in case.

 

I sent my fiance all the flavors and told him to pick anything that's not chocolate (since we are having the chocolate cannoli dessert).  He is pretty picky with desserts and he picked the caramel/coffee, which sounded really good to me too!!   Did they give you the cake flavor list?

Natalie79 - Those maracas are soo cute!  I'm saving the link to my favorites so I can buy them later on!  Thanks!

Lady Di - I go back and look at your photos and planning all the time!  It's just all so pretty and inspiring!

 

 

So, I'm leaving this Friday for my friend's wedding in Puerto Morelos and we will do the site visit at the Royal on Monday, Oct 18th!  I cannot wait to see this place in person!  AND do the food tasting!  Yum!

 

I had my first hiccup with my WC...She wanted to move the site visit to a different time, but my TA stepped in and reminded her that the site visit had been booked for over a month.  PHEW!  We would not have been able to do the site visit at all if it got rescheduled because we have to catch our flight home the same day.

 

The only thing I am concerned about is getting from Puerto Morelos to the Royal.  The only thing I can think of is to ask the shuttle service (if they have one) at the hotel we are staying at if they can drive us to the Royal.  I don't think taking a 45 min. - an hour long cab ride will be affordable or safe... huh.gif  Does anyone have any advice? 

 

CONGRATS to all the recent October brides!!  CAN'T wait to see pictures and planning!!

Hi Heidi!  We are using Cancun Transfers for our transportation and they do hotel to hotel too.  They are great and have good prices for transfers.  They are also very quick to get back to you with questions!

Looks like a one way cab fair from Puerto Morelos should be around $26-30 dollars one way (20 miles away from each other).  http://www.iloveplaya.com/taxis.php

http://www.tripadvisor.com.au/ShowTopic-g240327-i395-k2497012-How_long_does_it_take_to_get_to_playa-Puerto_Morelos_Yucatan_Peninsula.html

 

We took cabs when we were there last time. The bellman at the front of the resort just waved one down for us, we asked how much to where we wanted to go and agreed on the price and away we went. We went from Playa to Puerto Adventuras for dolphin swim and back no problem. And cabs to Walmart, Mega, Alux.....was just fiance and I, sometimes at night and didn't feel unsafe.

 

A cheaper alternative is, you can take a cab to the ADO bus stop in Puerto Morelos and take it into Playa as that station is walking distance to the resort. We took it from 5th Ave into downtown Cancun and then another local bus into Cancun's Hotel Zone. ADO bus is like a Greyhound coach bus, comfortable. You can get tickets there the day of but they run on a schedule so if you're tight on time, it's probably better to hire a shuttle service or take a cab.  http://www.tripadvisor.com.au/ShowTopic-g240327-i395-k3627056-ADO_bus_to_and_from_Puerto_Morelos-Puerto_Morelos_Yucatan_Peninsula.html

 

Hope that helps a bit!

Natalie,

 

Did you get an upgraded cake or the one in the package? The only options i saw for the one included was generic vanilla, choc, lemon and something else.

 

 

Heidi, Lomas travel is also decently priced for transfers

Woops!  forgot to answer the first time :)

 

We got the standard cake, since there are only 30 of us I thought it would be the best option.  She said I could pick Choc or vanilla cake...and then there was a list of maybe 15 filling options??

    • 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?  
    • 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.
