I'm a bit disappointed with the way they do things, we have the superior package, which includes a bridal bouquet, some flowers for the ceremony, photo package and cake. They free bouquet pictures provided by the WC didn't look like what i wanted, so i asked if I can use the price of the free one towards a better bouquet, the answer is no, you cannot use the value of any of the free stuff (which is not really free, you pay for it in the package) towards other products. You can choose to forgo your included things and buy a new bouquet for $240. Same goes for photo packages and cake. Had I known, I would have done the free package, and purchased my own stuff on top of it. Oh well, thought you girls should know.
Pookie - words of wisdom from someone not only much older, but someone who is also doing the whole package deal (and is an accountant) :o).

Write down everything you have included in the Superior package and its cost - write down everything you want and its costs - compare the two -- call your WC in Miami and see if you can keep the date and time and change the kind of ceremony to the free civil. She will tell you yes and send you a new contract and refund you everything you have paid so far. I know this part from doing it myself. Then, let your WC in Cancun know everything "you" want. They have to do it your way if you do this - not theirs. You will pay for it yourself when you get there. I started out with a package and then didn't like what there was in its entirety, so just recently I have changed it to the free package. By getting the "free" package I am able to purchase things that I want, not because they come with it, but because I want them. In my case, the cost is just a little more, but I am happier. In your case, you may even get it just a little cheaper and be happy :o)

Everything is still available to you - you will just have the liberty to chose. You being a member do not need the massage and stuff because it is already included.

Just words of advice! Don't get discouraged - it is your day and you should have everything you want. :o)

Good luck. Or.......you can do it Dez's way and throw holy hell their way :o)

What's funny is that before I picked the superior wedding package, I basically did what Nicole suggested. I figure out the price of each item I wanted indicidually and then added them up. Of course I wanted everything, and it was a better deal to get it in the package..so we went that way. I KNOW we'll be adding and upgrading things when we get there too.

quick question-if I want more than a 2 hour open bar I have to pay more correct? What if my friends want to drink past 10:30-what do you do?

It's an additional fee... how much I can't remember. I know for the reception in general you end up paying 1.5 times the original price per table or something... I probably should leave this to someone who has the documents in front of them

For those who want to drink past the time you paid for - it is all-inclusive :o) Have it in your program or something - they can take it some where close by and the drinks will continue to come to them.

Thanks girls, I've given up on the photo package (I dont really care, we have two friends who take great pics) and the cake (after reading the "what I would and wouldn't do again" thread, it doesn't seem like I need a big cake anyways), but I am battling my WC on the flowers. If we do not agree on the flowers soon, I will take your advice Nicole and change my package. At this point I would prefer not to make too many changes, so I think we can work the flowers out. I will keep you updated, thanks for the support and the advice.

Dinner comes with 2 hours of open bar, cocktail hour is an hour of open bar, you have to pay extra per person per hour, I think they quoted me $5-6 per person per hour for additional dinner open bar. We are having our reception until 10 and then going to andromeda disco when it opens at 10:30.

Hi Ladies,

I am going with the free civil package. (I have 22 people coming).

We are getting the large cake.

 

I am bringing my own silk flowers- the woman here in Buffalo did a great job! One calla lily for each BM, a bouquet of hydrangeas, lilies and orchids for me. Only the groom will get a boutonniere. I will bring them in a carry-on duffle bag. The cool thing about them to is that they don't really smoosh... if they do, a little fluffing and they'll go right back to the shape they were in.

 

I am getting the horse and carriage ride for me and my Dad to arrive at the ceremony in.

 

We are getting photography A for $280 which includes 36- 4x6 pictures, one 6x8 picture and an album. We don't know how this works, but we were thinking of buying the cd of photography as long as it has every single picture he takes on there (meaning more than 36).

 

We are getting the free cocktail hour because our guests booked 10 rooms, so I have to find out what that entails. Anyone know?

 

We are most likely having our free wedding dinner at the Los Caporales. (Anyone know anything about it there?) I think it was Dez that told me she thinks they put you off to the side, so you are away from other people.

 

So, that's my wedding there. I am having a reception in Buffalo, so that's why we chose to go this route.

 

I would love any comments or suggestions!

 

Thanks,

Melissa

Hi Melissa,

 

I was told the cocktail party consists of high tables and chairs, your choice of appetizers (from their list), location of your choice (from their list), and drinks for 1 hour. If you want music, you will have to purchase the sound system package which I believe is $204. Anything that you have purchased for your wedding i.e. flowers will be moved to the location for you. If you have a cake, it will begin at your ceremony and will be moved to your dinner location unless you specify wanting it at the cocktail. Our WC suggested, due to the heat, we should just have it moved to our dinner locale. We are having our ceremony at the Chapel gazebo and the cocktail party in the chapel garden right after the ceremony and before the dinner - the chapel area is absolutely stunning!

 

Dinner.....you will be some what seperated from the rest of the restaurant. If you are having 20+ people Los Caporales will not work - they say only up to 10 people. I have the restaurant listing and amount of people you are allowed to have at each if you are interested.

 

I have recently received a bunch of information from the resort if anyone is interested in more details.

 

Take care.

I would love some more information if you do not mind. I am having 25-30 people and would love some ideas from you. Also, since you are getting married in July are you at all worried about the heat? Are you having your reception outside?

      I wrote a ridiculously long review (11 pages). It includes my itinerary, my 6 page travel letter for worry warts, guest bags, every detail of the hotel, cost, advice, etc. I’m not going to overload the FB page with it so here is a link to the review if you want to read it. In short, I would give this hotel and experience 5 stars and recommend you use an outside vendor for photography and DJ just for cost effective reasons. Theirs is amazing and will not disappoint. My favorite part of my stay was the wedding of course and the spa. Favorite people at the resort were Paola (wedding planner), Vividiana (check in), Veronica and Marisol (spa). https://drive.google.com/open?id=1RaFb19Pbn8tDvNY3_GSoZ8DX0plYaT_F

       
    • Hi there, I think the idea of abroad trip is great for the newly married couple. But along with the trip you can also gift them some beautiful pairs of wholesale designer sunglasses, that will be helpful to them on the trip. By wearing wholesale sunglasses they look stylish and fashionable.
    • What is BMI? Body Mass Index ( BMI index ) is a person’s weight in kilograms divided by the square of height in meters. For children and teens, BMI is age- and sex-specific and is often referred to as BMI-for-age. In children, a high amount of body fat can lead to weight-related diseases and other health issues and being underweight can also put one at risk for health issues. A high BMI can be an indicator of high body fatness. BMI does not measure body fat directly, but research has shown that BMI is correlated with more direct measures of body fat, such as skinfold thickness measurements, bioelectrical impedance, densitometry (underwater weighing), dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) and other methods1,2,3. BMI can be considered an alternative to direct measures of body fat. In general, BMI is an inexpensive and easy-to-perform method of screening for weight categories that may lead to health problems. How is BMI calculated for children and teens? Calculating BMI using the BMI Percentile Calculator involves the following steps: Measure height and weight. Refer to Measuring Children’s Height and Weight Accurately At Home for guidance. Use the Child and Teen BMI Calculator to calculate BMI. The BMI number is calculated using standard formulas. What is a BMI percentile and how is it interpreted? After BMI is calculated for children and teens, it is expressed as a percentile which can be obtained from either a graph or a percentile calculator (see links below). These percentiles express a child’s BMI relative to children in the U.S. who participated in national surveys that were conducted from 1963-65 to 1988-944. Because weight and height change during growth and development, as does their relation to body fatness, a child’s BMI must be interpreted relative to other children of the same sex and age. The BMI-for-age percentile growth charts are the most commonly used indicator to measure the size and growth patterns of children and teens in the United States. BMI-for-age weight status categories and the corresponding percentiles were based on expert committee recommendations and are shown in the following table.   Weight Status Category Percentile Range Underweight Less than the 5th percentile Normal or Healthy Weight 5th percentile to less than the 85th percentile Overweight 85th to less than the 95th percentile Obese Equal to or greater than the 95th percentile   How is BMI used with children and teens? For children and teens, BMI is not a diagnostic tool and is used to screen for potential weight and health-related issues. For example, a child may have a high BMI for their age and sex, but to determine if excess fat is a problem, a health care provider would need to perform further assessments. These assessments might include skinfold thickness measurements, evaluations of diet, physical activity, family history, and other appropriate health screenings. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends the use of BMI to screen for overweight and obesity in children beginning at 2 years old. For children under the age of 2 years old, consult the WHO standards. BMI online Is BMI interpreted the same way for children and teens as it is for adults? BMI is interpreted differently for children and teens even though it is calculated as weight ÷ height2. Because there are changes in weight and height with age, as well as their relation to body fatness, BMI levels among children and teens need to be expressed relative to other children of the same sex and age. These percentiles are calculated from the CDC growth charts, which were based on national survey data collected from 1963-65 to 1988-944. Obesity is defined as a BMI at or above the 95th percentile for children and teens of the same age and sex. For example, a 10-year-old boy of average height (56 inches) who weighs 102 pounds would have a BMI of 22.9 kg/m2. This would place the boy in the 95th percentile for BMI, and he would be considered to have obesity. This means that the child’s BMI is greater than the BMI of 95% of 10-year-old boys in the reference population. For adults, BMI is interpreted as weight status categories that are not dependent on sex or age. Read more: How to interpret BMI for adult BMI Why can’t healthy weight ranges be provided for children and teens? Normal or healthy weight weight status is based on BMI between the 5th and 85th percentile on the CDC growth chart. It is difficult to provide healthy weight ranges for children and teens because the interpretation of BMI depends on weight, height, age, and sex. What are the BMI trends for children and teens in the United States? The prevalence of children and teens who measure in the 95th percentile or greater on the CDC growth charts has greatly increased over the past 40 years. Recently, however, this trend has leveled off and has even declined in certain age groups. To learn more about child and teen obesity trends, visit Childhood Obesity Facts. How can I tell if my child is overweight or obese? CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommend the use of BMI to screen for overweight and obesity in children and teens age 2 through 19 years. For children under the age of 2 years old, consult the WHO standards. Although BMI is used to screen for overweight and obesity in children and teens, BMI is not a diagnostic tool. To determine whether the child has excess fat, further assessment by a trained health professional would be needed. For information about the consequences of childhood obesity, its contributing factors and more, see Tips for Parents – Ideas and Tips to Help Prevent Childhood Obesity. Can I determine if my child or teen is obese by using an adult BMI calculator? In general, it’s not possible to do this. The adult calculator provides only the BMI value (weight/height2) and not the BMI percentile that is needed to interpret BMI among children and teens. It is not appropriate to use the BMI categories for adults to interpret the BMI of children and teens. However, if a child or teen has a BMI of ≥ 30 kg/m2, the child is almost certainly obese. A BMI of 30 kg/m2 is approximately the 95th percentile among 17-year-old girls and 18-year-old boys. My two children have the same BMI values, but one is considered obese and the other is not. Why is that? The interpretation of BMI varies by age and sex. So if the children are not the same age and the same sex, the interpretation of BMI has different meanings. For children of different age and sex, the same BMI could represent different BMI percentiles and possibly different weight status categories. See the following graphic for an example for a 10-year-old boy and a 15-year-old boy who both have a BMI-for-age of 23. (Note that two children of different ages are plotted on the same growth chart to illustrate a point. Normally the measurement for only one child is plotted on a growth chart.)  
    • Whether your relatives were especially generous with their checks or you intentionally set up a cash registry, let’s be perfectly clear: There’s no right or wrong way to spend your wedding gift money.  So sit down and start talking to ensure you’re both on the same page, then check out some of our favorite ideas for spending (and saving) those dollars wisely. Be Sensible About the Long Run
      Sometimes it pays to be a responsible adult, even if it seems boring on the surface. Before that cash starts burning a hole in your pocket, it’s a good idea to “pay yourselves first.” That means paying down debt (especially if you racked up any for the wedding itself), starting a rainy day savings fund, or even contributing to your retirement accounts. It might feel like a lifetime away, but one day you’ll both be glad you made such a sound investment. Save Up for Something Big
      A wedding windfall offers the perfect opportunity to get the two of you closer to a future goal you’ve been dreaming of. It can be as immediate as investing in much-needed new furniture (you can finally dump that lumpy old mattress!), or as far down the road as saving up for a home. Or maybe you want to buy a new car—especially if that sporty two-seater you’re currently driving doesn’t exactly match up with your plans to have kids. Whatever the goal, working toward something together will only serve to strengthen your relationship. Bright idea: Want to put your wedding wedding toward a down payment on a house? Consider opening a certificate of deposit (CD), especially if you’re not planning to buy for a few years. CDs tend to offer higher interest rates than savings accounts—and since you can’t touch the money for a set period of time, it’s useful if you’re usually tempted to tap into your savings for more immediate needs. Have a Little Fun
      Once you’ve got the future squared away, it’s okay to treat yourselves—so go ahead and enjoy a mini splurge that’ll benefit both of you. Reserve a small amount to put toward a shared interest, like a high-tech wine fridge or top-of-the-line home theater system. Or if the two of you have been texting each other pictures of golden doodle puppies for weeks, and you’re serious about raising a dog or cat, visit your local shelter or check out reputable breeders to find a new four-legged friend. Allocating a bit of the funds for something exciting maintains a healthy balance in your spending habits, making long-term financial wellness more achievable. (You know what they say about all work and no play.) Bright idea: Take a class together. Having a common interest helps you grow as a couple, so pick something you both want to learn, like a foreign language, and enjoy that extra quality time.
