People say the prices are cheaper through a TA or the websites vs. paying for them at the resort.

I for one don't want to book anything until i am there (because of the weather) so we're going to play it by ear.

I may fly down a friend/photog who will do my pics for free, or I may enlist cancun studios. Have to see how things work out.

I didn't even think of five months until you said that, WOW. We get to Cancun on the 8th(not sure what time), we should meet for drinks. When do you get in? Are you bringing decorations or anything for tables. I've decided against bringing anything beyond gift bags for the guests. It is so pretty there I doubt anyone will notice missing decorations. Getting Excited!
I actually get in on the 9th. I am bringing centerpieces for tables. I am also doing gift bags. I am not doing decorations for gazebo..it is just so beautiful on its own. Like you said no one will even notice. We will definitely have to meet for a drink. Most of my guests do not arrive until Wed-thurs. Only immediate family will be there tuesday. We will likely hang out at the resort and soak up the atmosphere tuesday. I was also hoping to set up a meeting with Claudia to make some final decisions.

I am freaking out.

My wedding is in two weeks and I have my ceremony booked for 5:00pm... I wanted to have it during sunset but I heard from some of you that the photos won't turn out nice because it gets dark so quickly.

I need Gaby to respond ASAP and I hope she can switch out time for sooner. Has anyone heard from her in the last couple of dayshuh.gif? shitfan.gif

I got an email from her a few hours ago. She's seemed pretty responsive lately, so hopefully you'll get something back from her soon. I'm sure it won't be a problem!

 

Also, she seems to look out for that anyways...i originally told her i wanted a 6:00 ceremony, and when she sent me my contract she said "i booked you for 4:00 because 6:00 will be too dark".

I was thinking about cancelling the ultimate package altogether and maybe going onto another restuarant for a meal, I wonder if there are any within the hotel, which would be suitable!!! What a nightmare!!! let me know what you decide Tracy
I think we are going to go off site simply because we wouldn't feel good about going to one of the other restaurants that they've already paid for in the AI package lol I wouldn't mind but FI won't have it lol

I'm now desp looking for a place. FI's idea wait until get there!!! WTF lol

Do you know if your photog has someone that does it.
Ok she responded and it only took 4 days lol

The vid is $600 plus tax!! Holy crap lol I told FI and he said "F** that" lmao If i'm truthful I was only getting it so he could load it on to his laptop for afghanistan and his sister is really ill so she might want to see it but he'll have to just remember lol

Thanks JCOOP, hopefully she gets back to me soon. I hope she can do it for 2:00pm because a couple of weeks ago she said that was the only other time they have available. I think they should limit the weddings to max two per day not 3 or 4. I think that's insane. shots.gif

That is crap the video is $600 pretty steep, don't you think?? What is really annoying me right now is the lack of communication. you ask a question and it takes so long for a response!!!! Let me know what you decide. Tracy

Marie, if that is all you want it for I would put a camcorder in someones hands and then show it to her. You could buy a camcorder for a lot cheaper than that! Hey that could be my job while I am there lol

    • 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.
