Hi fraggle42, How did you get Jazmin to respond to your e-mails? As I have only had one response from her over a month ago since then I have e-mailed her about 5 times including Paloma her boss and I have yet to get any reply, with my wedding on July 23rd of this year, this being my second go round with a different resort as our First tour company cancelled our first booking, now we are with a different tour company and a different resort this has been a long prossess and I am getting a little worried and frustrated.

You will be fine flowerchild. This site will help you out so much.I think without this site and some of the past brides that pop on here regularly I would be a wreck. I wouldnt have a clue about what to expect, all of the options or how to go about things. Jazmin (my WC) has been good at responding really seeing as our wedding is not until November but even so without this forum I think I would be so apprehensive about the wedding and how it was going to turn out which I am not. 

 

So thanks again to all the past and future brides for your help, info and advice. Only 8 months of questions and queries to go. xx

Hi Julybride40,

 

I haven't done anything special to get her to reply. She has emailed me 3 times now. I send her an email with questions I have and then she replies about a week or 2 later. If I have sent 3 mails in that time she will respond to all queries in one email. But it has been just the initial sorting out of date and venue so she has had to respond because it needed confirming. I bet if I emailed her about something like reception options she will take ages to get back to me because mine is not until November. I agree that they should be in touch with you with yours being in July.

 

I presume you have the correct email address as you say you have had 1 email. The only other thing I can suggest is that when she emailed me the first time to introduce herself she requested that all emails have certain details in the subject. This helps her to find our file and make sure everything is added and also to see date of wedding. Have you got this as your subject:

 

 

Wedding [package type i.e Unforgettable] [wedding date] [travel agency name] [booking reference number] [brides full name] & [grooms full name] [hotel staying in abbreviated]

 

e.g Wedding unforgettable, 1st April 2012, Thompson - T231RTY, Mary Smith & Peter Andrew Jones GBT

 

Try this if you have not already. She can see your wedding date then.

Hi all,

 

39 days til departure, this is getting real!

Can anyone give me tips on tipping? I haven't been to an all-inclusive resort before and wondering how much cash I should bring per week. We'll be there for 2 weeks total. We're planning on doing excursions during our honeymoon week, but will mostly charge excursions to our credit cards. How much tip do we leave per day for maid service, and how much tip do we give our waiters/bartenders etc...

 

Thanks!!

Hi AD2012 and Flowerchild23, I'm also a May 2012 bride for GBP Coba. Maybe I will see you both of your weddings, as we're staying a 2nd week.

Maria is also my WC and she has been very slow at responding. I was hoping she would be more attentive in March but I'm still waiting between 2-3 weeks to get a response. I've been emailing Felix, the Guest Services Manager, and having him send Maria reminders to contact me. Felix is pretty good at responding the same day.

Everything will be OK! Your wedding day will go off without a hitch!

I'm trying to stay positive, but I keep having this overwhelming feeling the day isn't going to be at all what I envisioned it to be...

Holy cow!  You girls are SOOO close to your wedding!  Eek!  How exciting!!


Tipping, totally up to you.  I tip the fridge dude $2 or $1 depending on how well he listens :)  I ask for extra candy bars and chips, and I specify that I like Snickers.  If he listens... I give him more because I appreciate it more.  That's what tipping is all about, after all :)

 

Fabric, I used a silky blend.  You can really use any kind that you want.  Organza will be more see through, but look flowy and beautiful.  Silk blend will be shiny and look substantial.

    • 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.
