I hope so!!!
I think we will make 60 nights. I have had several surprises just this last week, though, that caught me completely off guard. People I was definitely counting on having to back out. 2 families (3 rooms) that I was 100% counting on. I just hope we maintain the 60 nights for some free items. 17 of those nights are us (10 nights) and my boys (7 nights). I was really hoping for the 75 room nights to off-set that some and I really wanted the unlimited events. I was going to do something every day from Thursday through Sunday, with two things on the wedding day, if I had that. We will just have to do what we can now. I am just NOT fretting about it.

Ladies,

 

Moon Palace quotes private reception costs as $400 for 10 people. I find it confusing that they quote the reception based on 10 people versus a $40 per person price. Therefore, if you have 25 guests, would the total cost be $1000 ($40x25ppl) or do they round the number up to $1200 ($40x30ppl)?

 

Hope this makes sense.

Hey all-

 

Its getting really close to time to leave! Only a little over a month! Really excited although getting a little worried. I read peoples comments on tripadvisor.com before booking and the hotel was gettting really good reviews and ranked really well. As time goes on its dropping in ranks and less positive reviews. Is this making anyone else nervous?

 

I know that they say the beach is not the pretty blue like other locations but is does anyone know if it is not swimable? I have read the seaweed is a real problem. I was just hoping someone could ease my mind.

 

Thanks!

Oh no! Try not to be so stressed out. My BMs and GMs are really uneven (3 to 6) and I think it's great! With only one gone try to make it easy, have your girls go up by themselves with the GMs already standing in front then for the recessional have one of the girls walk by themselves or depending on your number double some people up.

Deep breaths and no more crying!

Thank you! here's what I am thinking to even out the processional...

 

have the MOH (my sister) walk alone during the processional (don't they walk by themselves anywayshuh.gif and just have the Best Man join the GMs in walking in with the bridesmaids...

 

for pictures... I'll just wing that which should be easy right?

 

any ideas?

Joy, my BMs and GMs are uneven as well. I was going to start with the GMs all up front with FI, and then just have the BMs walk up. I think Matt might need some moral support up there! LOL!

 

Tina, that sucks about that family. I've been wondering if my mom is going to end up backing out, but that's probably not due to the economy...*sigh* she's so difficult. I think it's great though that you still have so many people coming and supporting you. Maybe if you get a few more people to come, paying the difference to get the free unlimited functions would be an option.

 

At this point, I'm just hoping I stay under 30 peeps so I can have lots of get togethers in the restaurants. Our contract says we get one dinner reservation in a restaurant for 30 people or less. I was planning on doing like 3 or 4 of these...does anyone know if the contract is worded like that because they charge you for large reservations after the first? Or is it just the first that is prescheduled?

 

Peace out!

    • 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!
