Hey Ladies,

 

We've been home for just over a week now. We had an amazing time, thank you all for your help & suggestions.

 

I created a review of the resort if anyone is interested. Beware it's long!

Once we get some more photos from our photgrapher, I'll post them. Here are the sneak peaks from our TTD & wedding day. Sorry they're so large.

Thanks for the review AD2012 and congratulations.

 

Have a fab time Coba Bride 2012. Cannot wait for your review and pics.

 

Just a quick question for everyone. I am travelling from the UK and am hearing mixed opinions on the best currency to take. Some people say that the currency is the peso so take the peso. Some recommend the US dollar. All the prices of things at the hotel are in dollars. When we visited Mexico before we were recommended to take the US dollar but that was about 10 years ago and things may have change since then. Plus we still got change in peso's anyway so got confusing. Any advice?

 

I know we won't need to carry too much money with being all inclusive. Mainly for tips and excursions. Do most people pay for the wedding by card?

When I was there in January I paid with US dollar.  They did give me change in pesos, but it was small amounts. 

 

I paid for my wedding (back in 2008... sorry!) all on credit card.  I also paid for my incidentals (room safe) on my credit card this past January.

You're safe with either but I think USD are more prominent over there.

 

Speaking of paying for wedding related stuff....I know certain things are to be paid in cash - like the wedding officiant

Does anyone have a list of who will need to be paid in cash and what can be paid on CC??

Sunshine -  You have to pay for the blood tests & deposit on your wedding package in cash.Your WC will take the deposit at your meeeting.  Everything else can be put on your CC or charged to your room. When I had spoke with Jazmin about how to pay for eveything she said i could pay by CC at first then told me I needed cash for the deposit right before we left.

 

Fraggle - USD is fine, that's what we had. If you go to any vendor and they give you a total in Peso's they can convert it on the spot for you and give you the total in USD.

Oh yeah, forgot about the blood tests.  The DJ also has to be paid in cash, or at least it had to be when I was there.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
