We put a Travel Information page on our wedding website that had 3 sections: Flight Info, Accommodation Info and Transportation Info.

Flight Info - we listed the major cities that most people would be travelling from and the major airlines that fly direct from that city to Cancun. We also listed the time zone change from that particular city.

Accommodation Info - We listed soms details and the pricing of the rooms at the Hilton, and provided a link to our personal Hilton website so that they can book their rooms. We also listed the phone # and the event code in case they would like to call. Oh yes, and we stated the deadline to book a room.

Transportation info - We described the Gray Line airport shuttle and the local bus that takes people up and down the strip.

Thanks, kimdelc!

 

Opice,

How exciting about your site visit - do you have any pics you could share?? What kind of meetings did you attend? Which florists did you meet with, and what flowers have you decided on? Sorry for all the questions, but I'd love to hear how it went and what you decided on! I need to see if I need to have a planning site visit...that is, if I can afford it with the way gas prices/flight prices have been idk if it is in the budget...

 

I'm also glad to hear that Fernanda is swamped, kind of - haha, so we finally know that she isn't just blowing us off (not that I ever though she was, but you know what I mean).

 

Indy,

OMG have a wonderful time we're all sooo excited for you! Have a blast and don't sweat the small stuff! :)

I can't wait until Indy gets home!!!!

 

Jessica - the planning visit was GREAT, but I don't think it's necessary. They could email you pics of everything you need to see.

 

I'll post more later, but I'm thinking my bouquet will be white cala lillies, the BMs will hold little fuschia rose bouquets (tight and little), Groom bout will be a white cala lily, GMs bouts will be fuschia roses, fuschia and white petals down the aisle, fuschia and white pomanders hanging from the gazebo...

 

I may replace the fuschia roses with pink gerber daisies. Do you guys think that's okay? Cala lillies seem so elegant to me and gerber daisies seem so casual, but I love gerber daisies! Do you think I could do those two together??

 

Jessica - what flower did you decide? And what food are you serving?

Finally heard back from Fernanda! She's working on our contract right now! She actually has responded really quickly this week - hopefully that's a good sign!

 

Opice - we're booked for the week before you - November 8th. Any pictures you have to share would be great.

 

Can't wait for Indy to get back so we can all see her pictures.

Opice,

I think those flower combos sound great! Plus, it is whatever you want!! :)

I have not decided on flowers yet...

And for menu I'm doing the carribbean salad, the duet of salmon/filet, and the flan cheesecake for desert...yummy!! What did you decide on?

 

kelcrooks,

She just got me my contract, so you should def get yours soon! I feel SO much better now!!

 

All (especially Opice),

HELP! Speaking of the contract...so I'm thinking I'm running into that whole "insurance" dilemma. You know, the one that you negotiate out of the contract? Was this what it says about it in the contract? "You further agree to obtain and keep in force General Liability Insurance covering the event described in this contract with the limits of not less than $1,000,000 per occurance & to provide the hotel with a Certificate of Insurance naming Hotel, Hilton, and the owner as an additional insured for your event" Ok so I emailed her and told her I wanted it taken out (is that what everyone else did?) and she said that there are a few companies in the US I can go through to do this. Did anyone else have to do this? what.gif

Yes, and I called the companies she gave me and they had no idea what I was talking about. I would do that, if I were you. Call them, they'll tell you they don't insure events in Mexico, and then you can give Fernanda that message. That's what I did and she took it out. The US companies basically laughed at me when I called and asked for insurance for a wedding in Mexico.

Gotta run...more later! Hugs!

    • 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.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
    • Two of my friends are going to get married next month. Out of them one is suffering from serious teeth issue. He is having bleeding gums along with jaw pain and swelling, particularly around the gums or around the jaw. Because of the teeth issue, he is not able to make the arrangements for the marriage. Is it safe to carry out tooth extraction during this period of time? How painful is dental implants during and after the procedure? Will he be able to eat food after tooth extraction? Please share your views and suggestions. Thank you!
