We are leaving tomorrow (sunday) at 9am. I found some generic numbers on word and printed them on nice paper. We have family checking for us Monday in case they arrive. But if not - I have backup.

 

So ready for Mexico!!! The weather is starting to look alot better ladies. At least no storms just some rain here and there.

 

I will be taking tons of pics!!! Can't wait to see JoZee down there. We'll be in rm 292.

 

Can't wait!!!

 

 

Hey Janna, I'm here! got in today after some flight horrors!  I have a meeting with the WC at 9:30 tomorrow for our blood test maybe i'll see you in there!

Hey girls! The Resort is amazing!!! There are a few sprinkles here and there but nothing too terrible.

 

I highly recommend upgrading to the master suite if you can!!! It is amazing and super huge!! Plus there's so many amenties, like free long-distance!! We got an awesome deal on it. They offered it to us for just $100 extra a night. We originally had a royal jr. suite oceanview and the master suite is oceanview as well but man it is nice!!! We have room 920. I highly recommend it and we're close to the gazebo.

 

Customs was super easy. If you can get in the line with the scanner - do it. That way they don't open your bags and go through it.

 

JoZee!! YAY!!! We don't meet with Michelle until Tuesday at 9am. can't wait!! Hope to see you too!!!

 

Oh!! we did the couples massage that was part of our package. Amazing!!! definitely do it!!!

Awww thanks, so sweet!   I changed my color scheme about 4 times and drove my bridal party nuts since the girls couldn't order their dresses until I decided.  Oooops, haha :)

 

Anyways in the end I'm sooooo happy with my final decision and I love how the bright colors look in the pictures.

Girls!!!

 

I saw jozee's wedding ceremony from afar and it looks amazing!!! aw!!! so happy for her!! Oh! so a great surprise is that Royal now offers different chair styles. Their white and folding kind look so much better then the conference chairs draped in chair covers. I was super excited about that.

 

All I can say is that the food quality at Gran Porto is nowhere near the same as the Royal. I'm actually pretty mad at my welcome dinner. We picked everything based on the quality of the Royal side and we ended up with not what we wanted. It was sorta what we picked but not really.

 

So except for that little aspect it's been great here so far. I definitely recommend the Tulum Express Tour. Just beautiful and full of ancient history.

 

The sun here is much brighter and stronger than US and Texas!! I am wearing 100spf sunblock on my face and 85 spf sunblock on my body and I am tanning. So definitely be prepared.

Are any of you ladies doing colored bracelets for your guests?

 

A friend of mine went to 3 destination weddings last year and said her favorite/most useful thing was colored bracelets that all the guests wore during the trip so that they could identify each other as part of the group. She went alone to all and said it was nice for her to be able to recognize and hangout with the other guests.

JHarris,

     You're up next! Hope you have a beautiful wedding day! Glad to hear that it's sunny--- my little weather app shows clouds and rain every single day...

 

These different chairs-- I wonder- if they are charging more for them....

never thought of it, but that's a great idea! the resort bracelet is clear (at least, it was a few years back), so you could get practically anything. it would even be a good spur-of-the-moment purchase in playa - perhaps to add to the OOT bags?

My WC gave me the option of white garden chairs as well at no additional charge for my cocktail.  I think they usually charge for them because I remember asking for prices on them.

 

This is what they look like:

Girls,

I just did my pin up/ boudoir pics today, it was so much fun!!  My FI was suspicious because my hair is curled when I came back from work..so I came up with smth like I went for a free makeover session at MAC...lol Here are some of the raw pics (unedited), so sorry for the skin imperfection and extra fat!  I am sure Photoshop will do wonders! I didn't went for lingeries, because I zzz nude every nite, so I think he will be more exciting to see me in corsets.

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
