Will greatly appreciate your input, Thanks!

 

If you go to the TSA website: http://www.tsa.gov/travelers/airtravel/prohibited/permitted-prohibited-items.shtm#9 , it says that you can't bring matches on planes, I think it states you can bring one book of matches on your carry on but none in your checked bags..... so I would say definitely ship them if you can!

Suzy- Katia was also my WC.....I LOVE HER!! I was so sad when she called me to let me know she was going on maternity leave! who is your WC now? mine is Elvy.....I spoke to her once last week and she seems nice.....Katia mentioned to her and their boss to please take good care of me! we had become really close.....

 

I wouldn't be too happy if they had changed my location without my concern either!

Okay, in every email and message from my other WC's I've specifically stated that I wanted my wedding on the beach behind the gazebo (just because I wanted everything in the same area so people didn't have to walk far to get to places) and I was told it was booked there... in all of my paperwork I sent them, it says "Reception: Beach behind Gazebo".. so can they just move it without asking me?? How is the beach by Pelicanos?? Is it nice? Is it nicer or worse than the beach area behind the gazebo??? I'm sooooo annoyed... but not sure if I can really do anything at this point. I know a beach is a beach... but just when I think I have everything figured out and organized, something else changes without me knowing!! :(

I have Elvy too. She is okay, but Katia would answer my questions so thoroughly and attach pictures, etc. She was great! I know everything will work out in the end, but it is just hard to plan a wedding when you are so far away!

The resort is definitly not big, I'm guessing but I would think The Royal and Gran Porto would be considered small compared to other resorts.  When we went in April we noticed wedding groups meeting up and hanging out by the pool or on the beach. 

 

 

thanks guys...i guess it looks pretty big from the pictures i've seen.  does it get crowded by the pool or on the beach?  my wedding is april 10 and alittle nervous there will be tons of people there because of spring break.

Suzy831 - I asked my WC through the Real Resorts Basecamp website - If we wanted to change our location, do we need to let her know now or can we let her know 2-3 days before the wedding when we arrive at the resort.  Her answer was now.  So we changed our location to the ballroom and it's a done deal.  Not sure why it had to be now, since the ballroom location seems to be the back up in case it rains, but I guess it's better safe than sorry.  Do you have the basecamp website set up?

 

All ~

I checked my contract and they did put in there that a 2nd deposit is due and a final payment, but I didn't pay attention to it at all when I signed it!  I also just checked my basecamp website and their is a tab at the top that says 'Milestones'.  When I clicked on it, it showed the date when the 2nd deposit is due and also the date the final payment is due, 45 days before the wedding.  That is helpful and a good reminder.  :)

 

Hope all is well with everyone!  8 days until I go wedding dress shopping!!

 

Heidi - Now that is hilarious!! Too bad my wedding is a month earlier than yours - your Dad would have some company. rolleyes.gif

 

I'm at Greenway Plaza/West University area. How exciting!! Where are you dress shopping? I got my dress at Now & Forever Bridal near corner of Richmond & Kirby. Maison de Mode in Village and Mia Couture on West Gray are great places as well. I will have to caution - If you go to Brickhouse Bridal - make sure they tell you everything about that dress before you sign the contract. They tried to scam my sister into buying a cheap dress for $$.

 

Where has this year gone!! Crazy that it's almost 2011!!! ACK!! That just means more stuff to finish and decide. shots.gif

Now maybe the ceremony that is going one is only the couple and no guests etc so it won't interfere with your reception.  We say a couple "couples" getting married by themselves or renewing vows when we were there.

 

I e-mailed my wedding coordinator about this, and I'm hoping I get a response soon... now for those brides who have already gotten married here, if you decided to make changes last minute, like if I wanted to move my reception location to a different area of the beach, and I didn't decide this until I got down there, like 2 days before the wedding, are they accommodating to changes?? Or are they strict about stuff? I guess I just feel like I'm not going to really get an idea of what things will look like, etc. until I am down there, and I'm not getting very many answers from my WC.... ??

 

 

Suzy - My understanding is that you need to decide now on the location for ceremony and reception since they coordinate several weddings a day. Are you able to do a site visit before the wedding? We're hoping we can to give us a better idea of the layout and noise factor. I remember Lisa telling me that she was near the gazebo and didn't really hear anything from the other weddings there - that's definitely a plus!!

 

I have heard some of the WCs are slow to respond but they do keep a file on all your requests and emails. You might try calling and seeing if you get more of a response?

Suzy,  honestly I would be happy with this move.  The Pelicanos beach is A - bigger and B - more "out of the way" for normal guests on the beach.  I realzie how frustrating it can be to have a change like that made with out your approval, but honestly I think you will like it better....also it is not a big difference distance wise - 3-4 minute walk?!?

GC - My coordinator said it would be fine to ship items.  That they need to be sent to your coordinator somehow labled with your names/wedding date.  The only down side is that they say they aren't responsible if it doesn't arrive.  Also with customs, things can get held up - I have heard that it is BEST to include your receipts of the items you are sending with them - that it helps it get through customs faster.  Just a thought....

    • 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.
