That would be great...I cannot believe that I didnt pay more attention when I did my site visit. Of course this is probably because a beach renovation wasnt mentioned!

AND - Congrats!!!! I hope everything turns out perfect for you....2 weeks is like a blink of an eye!

I'm having the same issue! I emailed Cecilia about a week ago and haven't heard back which is weird since she has been quick lately since my wedding is in a few weeks!

 

I finally gave up waiting for email and called her.....it took about 10 tries but i finally got her!! She mentioned to me that the new beach is like we already know, very large so they cannot set anything up too close to the water. But i really need a visual so i cant wait for these upcoming reviews!!!

Hi ladies! So, I leave in about a week and a half (yikes!) and I haven't heard from Cecilia, can you guys think of anything that I MUST do prior to arriving? I havent set the dinner menu, but I figure I can do that at our meeting. I've made spa reservations...but I feel like I haven't done much. Do most people do the majority once they get down there?

 

Thanks for the help! I'm getting excited!!! I'll be sure to bring back lots of pics :)

Wooo Hoooo!!! a week and a half - i bet you cant sleep at night!!!

My wedding isnt until August, but from reading on this board it seems that most leave just about everything until they get there! I think as long has you have everything in order ceremony wise (your music and script if you are writing your own) then you should be fine!

Im leaving pretty much anything that requires a "choice" for when we get there. Im not picking a menu until we can taste it, and im not picking flowers until i can see sample pictures!

Cant wait to see your pics and read your review!!

Actually, You have to pick out what the set menu will be and that is what everyone will get.

What she means by mixing the silver & gold menu is, you can use a Appetizer from the silver menu and the entree from the gold or visa versa & etc...

 

They will work with you for Kids and Vegetarian's. I think another girl even got her to give her guests a choice of two options and they got to pick at dinner or something like that. :)

and don't forget that depending on the number of guests you have you'll do either sit down or buffet style. i'm pretty sure that up to 40 guests you can have a sit down and after 40 it's buffet style.

 

don't worry if your guests reply to your email and everyone wants something different....it's your wedding and you pick whatever the menu will be. kinda sucks that you gave them the "option", but i'm sure that the day of, no one will even think about it. plus from all the reviews, the food during the reception is better than what they normally do at the restaurants!

Thanks. All of this is just overwhelming lol Luckily i had only sent the menus to a couple of people so i backtracked & corrected myself. What i've done now is give them the option of picking the chicken suprema option or the dreams duo option (steak & fish) Claudia said that should be fine since there are some people who don't like fish and we are only having about 30 people...Is that what you guys are doing? If they only let you pick one how could you possibly decide when so many people have such different tastes.

    • 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. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
