So Pissed At The Hilton

Recommended Posts

I hope you get your dilema sorted. I would like to wade in about Marco. Whenever Marco is the Officiant I always have a big smile on my face. Marco has a wonderful presence which can only be felt live and in person. Reading his mannered repsonses here on this thread can in no prepare you for what an incredible touch he has as an Officiant.

 

I just did a beach wedding with Marco at Casa Del Mar and he was right on the money once again! Sincere, humorous and respectful. And he always looks great.

Perhaps Marco can suggest someone else who would be available at 6:00? But, maybe it is worth waiting the extra 30 minutes to have him be your officiant. Possibly you can work on getting the extra 30 minutes for music. Or maybe there are other ways to adjust your timeline. Take pictures before the wedding?

You seem to adore Marco and have been so thrilled to have him as your officiant. Yes the ceremony is the shortest part of the evening, but it also the most special! Based on your feelings, I think you should 100% stick with Marco @ 6:30.

 

As for the ending at 10:30 instead of 11pm, I say stick with the attitude nope not happening. My suggestion, throw a fit with the Hilton in an attempt to have them give you a waiver to have music that one night until 11pm. This is after all THEIR fault, and you and Marco both have emails to prove that. And extending their own music cut-off rule for one evening well that is something that is well within the Hilton's ability to do. Forget your current WC, go directly to the director of catering with your emails (andMarcos too if he's up for sharing them with you) and plead your case. That's my 2 cents.

 

GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!

That is so frustrating! Its hard enough planning a wedding and then this on top of it. I'm already starting to go nuts and i Haven't even secured a location! If i were you I would push everything back to the time you want it and have a different officiant do the ceremony...Unless marco is really important to you, but if you just heard good things about it him but you have no personal attachment, use someone else.

I talked with Jaira and she said there's no way to waive the music ending at 10:30. i was fine with bumping the ceremony up, but I am spending WAY too much money for them to cut short ANY part of the wedding. The reception is already semi short in my opinion at 3 hours. (by the time everyone is there and are given food, that would only leave us with an hour and a half of dancing...) I can just imagine someone saying "yea thats fine, we'll make an exception for you and let the music stay on till 11, and then come July 5th at 10:30 the music goes off and we can do a thing about it....

The situation just sucks because of all the absolute wonderful, positive things that everyone had to say about Marco...

my main reason for being so outraged is that this would have never been brought to my attention had Mara not left the Hilton. oh well... who said wedding planning was easy!!!!! thanks for the encouragement/advice guys!

My new hubby and I just got back from our Cabo wedding which was held at the Hilton. For what its worth...and I know you need to hear this right now...with all the trouble we went through with the Hilton, the location was so gorgeous and the event so wonderful, I sort of forgot about how bad they pissed me off the past few months.

 

As stressed out as you are right now, everything will come together. If you are having trouble communicating with Jaira and can fit it in your budget...you might consider hiring a wedding planner to help you. I hired Maye Cortinas the month before my wedding and she and her assistant Karen were my saving grace.

 

Lastly, before you make a final decision on your officiant, you may want to set up a phone call with Marco just to discuss his ceremony...he played a HUGE role in making my wedding so wonderful, even though the ceremony was only 25 mins or so. If a memorable ceremony is important to you...he is the best. If you have any Hilton-related questions, don't hesitate to hit me up :).

 

Good luck,

Mia

 

P.S. Complete review of vendors coming shortly...

    • 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.
