Contacting Chandlyn

Recommended Posts

I tried contacting Chandlyn about some questions (which I got answered anyways by reading this forum) and I got an email back from Vanessa saying that Chandlyn would contact me 1-2 months before my wedding.

 

My question to you ladies is: Are you worried that you will not be able to get your requested dinner location/reception location if you share your special wedding day with other brides? How do they go abouts that, is it first come first pick sort of thing (whoever talks to Chandlyn ahead of time and plans this? or ?)

 

I am extremely worried that I will not be able to not get my requested dinner and reception location and that is just all part of my special day!

 

Also, is there ANY way to get in contact with her prior to the 1 or 2 months before my wedding date or do I really just need to wait till then to make my dinner and reception requests?worried2.gif

Hmm... I have emailed Chandlyn several times now and she has always answered and been very friendly. It usually takes about 2 weeks, which from what I heard on hear was pretty normal. I tried to keep them short and sweet ... mostly just asking to reserve my dinner reception and getting her verification of different prices. I haven't heard back from my most recent question to her (about a week ago) so maybe they are changing their email policy... or maybe since my wedding is a few months before yours they are being more lenient?

I'm sure it's b/c she is overwhelmed, especially with it being high wedding season at the moment and she doesn't have any help. I don't know when she has time to respond to emails at all! When i was there I saw her leave every night at 11pm or later and then she was back the next morning at 9am.

 

It could also be that your wedding is a year away and policies, etc may change by next April so maybe she is reluctant to confirm details this far in advancehuh.gif If you already know where you want your reception and its somewhere other than Mammee Bay (which is where all wedding receptions are automatically booked for) you might just email them back and make that specific request.

Ohh I didnt know that dinners are automatically booked for Mammee Bay- which is great cause thats where I want to have it! I was also thinking about afterwards whether or not I would get my after location like the disco or seagrape....

 

Thanks, I guess I will have to wait...blah! I just want to get stuff done, which I guess its still sooo far away! :)

I emailed as well and got the same response as you did from Valeria. I have a few questions about flowers & cakes and didn't want to wait until 2 months prior to the wedding to make certain decisions. I did find some pics here of flowers but nothing on the cakes. Hang in there!

i will agree with twelvepiece.... Chandalyn and/or valeria will respond to any questions you have.. It normally takes about 2 weeks... I assume they will begin to respond to inquiries quicker as your date approaches. I just changed from the beach to the beach gazebo for my cermony and Chandalyn responded w/in 2 weeks.

 

also some other things other brides may need to know:

-The resort will accept wedding supplies to be shipped prior to your arrival. chandalyn states that 2 weeks is typically sufficient and she will personally take responsibility for your items.

 

-You can transfer your ceremony flowers to the reception site and then to dinner at Mammee Bay at no additional charge.

 

-I plan leaving welcome bags in my guests rooms prior to arrival and chandalyn states that she and Valeria can assist w/ making sure these bags are securely placed in guests rooms (30+ people)

 

Hope this helps..

This was my free cake. I brought the flowers from home (silk) and asked Chandlyn to have them placed on the cake. I had a choice of white or chocolate cake, i chose white cake and it had a strawberry and cream filling. My cake was 3 layers but some girls have had 2 layers. I don't know what the deciding factor is- maybe your guest count... I had 25 and it was enough for everyone.

As for flowers, Tai Flora does all the flowers and they are VERY slow to respond and the prices are quite high- IMHO. The flowers in my siggy are bouquets that I asked them for price quotes on and they were all between $100-$300.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
